  • Study

    by Marie Safi

    This bible is a great study tool and easy to comprehend.

  • Awesomely RAD study bible. Great for iPhones.

    by Whoop 1 only

    The WORD stands by itself. We can become more of the kingdom of God on earth by digging deeper into His written plan book

  • Great App

    by Chappy44

    I have been impressed with the Amplified Bible for years. It's great to have it on my phone!

  • Excellent

    by Moonitz

    I have used the Amplified Bible for study most of my adult life, i am 66 now. It enables me understand the meaning of the words in there original language because many of those words do not have an equivalent word in english. It has never been easier and quicker to find my way around in your electronic edition. keep up the good work. It would be even nicer to have more cross references to other verses for illumination of the thought, like the Zondervan paper bound editions of decades past.

  • Can't Go Wrong!

    by MerryMot

    There is not one version of the word of God that you can EVER go wrong w/, because, well, its the word of God! That said, this is my first experience w/ the Amplified Version & I'm lovin' it! It brings clarity to so many verses that I have previously kinda scratched my head at. Now I, (personally), think that some of the tools could use a little tweeking, namely the highlighting tool. You have to open the helps, then open the colors THEN your able to highlight what you want! I also think the colors could use a little UMPH in the strength of their hue. Other than that it's great & I love it & look very forward to MANY happy years partaking of the scrumptiousness of His "bread of life" & drinking in this ever satisfying "living water"! I pray you will be EQUALLY as blessed!

  • Great

  • Riches of God's word

    by Mike in Huntsville,TX

    I serve in prison ministry as a volunteer chaplain. Most inmates that desire to know God in a deeper way through understanding His word but are hindered by space & the money to order Bible study reference materials so I advise them to get an Amplified Bible...even if it's in paperback. I sometimes refer to the Amplified as "The Cheater's Bible" because you don't need a bunch of expensive tools to understand God's's almost like cheating.

  • Enjoy

    by Tony Loadholt

    Enjoy reading the daily word and the bible stories! I give it five stars

  • My Purchased Translations Are Split!

    by TomMcCu

    Overall, I like it very much although I'm still getting used to the latest version. One particular issue is that my Amplified translation is now in one App, and my Contemporary English is in another! It's more cumbersome to switch with now needing to close one App and then go the other.

  • Highest rating

    by jcsemp

    This used to be an elegant app. I rated it 5 star in a prior rating. Now that is not any longer true. What has occurred is the developers have added all these superfluous helps and a more cumbersome interface. The one interface quirk that really bugs me has popped up in many of the "up grades". I personally like to read in landscape this is once again not a landscape friendly app. Please fix this. You guys are the only game in town for amplified. Then, in the future if you want to add something first take out the fluff and then put in something more useful like a concordance or lexicon. Folks, it's a good app and early on it was a great app. I would still buy it today. Even though the upgrades go sideways at times.


    by Sid Bikor

    Great app, and the update even made it superb. I recommend it to all preachers and students of the bible. Thanks to developers.

  • Pros and Cons

    by D.S.C.

    I appreciate the updates that provide word definition and the additional highlighting/underlining options. However, when I did the update, it changed all of my previous highlights/categories! In addition, it is hard to delete highlights/underlining without a lot of clicking and trial and error. :-(. Overall, a little easier to maneuver than before...but very frustrated with the inability to easily control which way the text reads on my iPad (vertical or horizontal). It seems to do its own thing and changes sporadically. I'm finding I spend more time trying to figure these issues out than actually studying and enjoying...

  • What happened to my beautiful, easy to navigate Amp. Bible?

    by Seldom review.

    Some of the changes are "nice" and I'm certain that opinions differ as to which is more important to them,but that isn't the issue. Just put the tool bar for EVERYTHING possible at the TOP!!! And PLEASE make it begin in the same orientation I had it in. Once I finally get it in to landscape and try to click on 'help', the help window comes up in PORTRAIT over a landscape text. It is frustrating enough to make you pull your hair out. Please fix!!! You took a solid 5 star app and made it a one star. I'll give you a little more, but not for long. When (if) it is fixed or adequately improved, I'll give you the 5 stars.....if I haven't gone to a new app by then. "Don't fix what ain't broke....just polish it up now and again". Please fix this very soon. P.S. Lost ALL highlights, bookmarks, notes etc.

  • Excellent

    by DMorais

    It works as I expect it to. However I pretty much use it just for daily readings.

  • Amp

    by Abrazo fuerte

    Love the translation and side notes,, QueListo

  • My "In Addition To"!!!

    by TheFreakShow

    I'm not sure if the Amplified Version will ever be my primary Bible. But, I love it as a not-quite-so-identical twin to my primary. Thus, it IS the #1 electronic version I've downloaded and depend upon. I continue to prefer actually carrying my primary physical Bible with me ... feeling the weight of God's Word in my hands ... able to physically hear the pages flutter as I flip from Genesis to Revelation. Yet, my top Bible teachers have pointed me to the Amplified to connect ever deeper with the original language. I only got this version on my iPad ten days ago ... yet, have accessed it almost every single day since to add emphasis and provide clarity. For me, this is fast becoming the best Paid App I've ever purchased.

  • One (Amplified Bible)

    by Dr fron

    Clearly my favorite version. As a pastor I am recommending it to others all the time.

  • Minister

    by Faithful624

    It is awesome. I love this App. Thank you.

  • AMP Bible

    by The word is great

    Being able to take notes and different commentary makes easier to read the word. I love this Application.

  • Scott

    by Rotso O

    Just what I was looking for. This is not my main bible app nor when it comes to serious study do I make sermon notes on an app (only for reminders of what the Holy Spirit was showing me). Therefore, I don't need all the bells and whistles, just the Amplified Version.

  • Amplified Bible

    by Ceely Moore

    This is the best! I thank you for making this available. I now understand what I read in the King James Version. Knowledge is power, knowledge can only be gained by understanding. Many thanks.

  • A.B
