  • Best bible app

    by Michael Green

    I also have the desktop version and they are both incredible and work awesome together.

  • Good bible

    Good bible

  • Good but bad

    by A guy who plays temple run

    This is a good app in all, but there is one problem for me. On my ipod touch, whenever i highlight a verse and try to copy it or something else, i have trouble trying to push the glo icon that pops up. Whenever i try to press it, it skips over to the other page. I do not know if this is a glitch or anything like that, but i would like it to be fixed if possible. Thank you.

  • One of my favorites

    by TerriHop

    This is a wonderful option to use when reading and studying the Bible! Very easy to use, and I love that it syncs between my phone, iPad, and MacBook. I've had no problems at all and am 100% satisfied.

  • Impressed

    by Blessed Hall

    I'm trying to strengthen my faith! This bible app has definitely helped me do so! I like the small sections! I feel like Im able to read at ease with no distractions. I had very difficult reading traditional bible the size/width is discouraging. This being split up n plans it makes it a lot easier! I'm confident ill finish now!!!!

  • Awesome!!

    by Julie1957

    This is a beautiful Bible app, one of the nicest I've seen. Keep up the great work and God bless!!

  • Translations

    by Dwilt72

    Love the app, but would like more translation options.

  • Best bible app so far


    This is the best Bible app so far, across all three platforms. On the iphone it os easy to look up verses and search. On the iPad mini I can do all I can do on the iMac. Opening multiple windows is easy, and switching between is a breeze. No complaints at all. The only way to improve it would be to add original languages, but then it wouldn't target every day readers. Get the premium version. It is worth the extra cost. Five stars

  • Great

    by Dcarreom

    I've used numerous phone bibles but alway return to Glo. I use it daily on both an iPad and iPhone. Love it's integrated bible, pictures, narrative, maps capability.

  • Great for iPhone but not touch tablet

    by Gecoll

    I have used this app for a year on my iPhone and have loved it. But when I tried to download it on my windows 8 tablet I can't log in. When I try to click in the log in screen it does not bring up my on screen keyboard so I have no way to type. Same issue with the notes section of the bible, can't add notes. Get it if you only have an iPhone or PC but no way for the windows 8 tablet.

    by AmeanJedi

    Love this bible app, and I know I'm nitpicking, but iOS 7 interface would be nice, and if the icon would be like the App Store pic it would be better

  • Good Bible

    by Thelight2014

    Excellent piece of work this digital Bible ...keep up the good work and God bless

  • Love it!!!

    by Monkeymayhem007

    4 year veteran of Glo and it's so easy to use and I love how it allows me to research a topic and compare translations. The only thing that needs tweaking is the Highlight feature. There needs to be a way for it to show up in each version correctly highlighted instead of mismarked and halfway in one verse and/or halfway in another. It appears to only be marking that area of the screen instead of capturing the actual verse. Thank you for a bible that is a very integral character in my life.

  • Great app but

    by Jack Leech

    This app has all the features I want in a Bible app but it needs the Common English Bible.

  • Sir

    by Go oro

    Very practical and easy to use, I love it.

  • Great Bible

    by Yom617

    Easy to use, fast. The only thing I would add is the ability to press the words to look up the meaning, but everything else is fantastic.

  • Highly recommend

    by Sljwatts

    Can simply read scripture via NRSV or you have choices about how to clarify your readings. You can see a map of locations in scripture, paintings that are created from different verses, photos which can be magnified sometimes from many angles, and articles that are both scholarly and understandable on terms and ideas. Many options to clarify or enrich your readings.

  • Wonderful app!

    by 704Domiknow

    This is definitely one of the better Bible apps I have tried. Highly recommended.

    by Hi I'm......

    This is my favorite bible app that I have downloaded! I read it every night and love it!

  • Love it so much

    by BruceWayne4eva

    Been using this app for almost a year for my daily reading and it has served me very well. I love the sharing verses feature to share on facebook and how I can highlight specific verses and then see my entire journal of them. The account you create also transfers the data between different devices. I use it on my computer too!

  • Love it!

    by lolocats

  • Great way to read the word

    by Masterztoy

    Sad, that I have never before picked up a real Bible. But I am now reading and learning from scripture everyday!

  • Great App

    Has everything I need. All the versions and cross references. Information and maps are handy too

  • Fantastic

    by fastforddad

    This is the best Study Bible I've ever used. The interface takes awhile to get use to, but once that's under control it rocks!!

  • Love it

    by Kerri62

    I am really liking this bible. It takes a little bit of time using it to figure it out because there is no help. Exp: I wanted to use this at church but couldn't get to the scripture fast enough. When u tap bible u have to gi first by book then by chapter BUT u cant go by verse... U have to scroll. By accident I found that I could put book, chapter, verse in search and I could flip there quickly. So it was just a matter of technique. Now I know.... Just wish that was something that was told upfront because I almost quit using this because flipping was so cumbersome. Something I don't like is with other apps words u don't know u can tap and easily find out what it means. This one u can not. I'm just talking ENGLISH lol I would live to be able to tap words for the Hebrew/Greek/Arabic meaning as well. Maybe they will get to that eventually. In the mean time this is a really great app! PS: I love-love-love the daily reading and my journal section!!

  • Great bible app

    by OzoneMCX

    I really like this app because its so easy to use and and many great maps and things!

  • Good

    by Maint417

    This is a fast response when looking for verses.

  • No NLT

    by Sill[303]

    Wish they had NLT version, then it'd be 5 stars

  • Awesome App!!

    by SirLucious

    I love the Glo bible app. It is a study partner like no other. The only down side, for me at least, is that it doesn't offer many versions. I would love it if they could include the ISR98 bible version.
