    by Max savage

    This is a great app. I appreciate all the information that is available. I wish I could send a verse of scripture to someone not just where it is located in the bible. I also really enjoy all the translations that are available. The only recommendation I have is if I am looking at say verse 28, and want to see how an other translation says it, then it goes back to verse one. Thanks so much for this app.


    by GDStep

    Easy to use. I use it every day for my Bible study time.

  • Really good bible app!!

    by The~Night~Watchman

    I love this app! It's really awesome and I like how there are different fonts and sizes and all the different colors to highlight and underline. In the future I would like to see where you can have it read out loud to you for when my eyes are to tired to read, but over all this app is AMAZING and you should defiantly download it!

  • Perfectly designed

    by LovelyAlicia

    I have tried several Bible apps and this one has been the best, the nicest looking, customizable, helpful and has the Amplified Bible version which I use when I study. There are reading plans and devotional features as well.

  • Great app!!

    by Gibson Lively

    Love the different version options. Use it every day!

  • Jesus # 1

    by Elloboc

    App is easy to use. I don't know about you but I like it!

  • I love it!

    by 1st. BERRENDO

    Thank you to the editors, because is very clear and understandable. God bless you all.

  • Great app


    I love that a lot versions of the Bible are available in one place. I'm glad I downloaded it

  • Bible App

    by Lovestruction

    Great App-Repaired many bugs

  • Bible

    by Just thebest

    It is convenient and easy to access. I especially like the search function When I am looking for a particular verse and and I only know a few words. It would be nice if you could copy just a part of a verse and not the whole verse.

  • Glad to find NRSV!

    by Sogowan

    Have tried numerous other bible apps, but had not been able to locate NRSV

  • Awesome!!

    by SitzGK

    Amazing app!! I've been recommending this to all of my friends and family.. I absolutely love it!

  • Made improvement

    by KenBowie

    It's a good app but I wish it all automatically updated itself before I start using

  • Hi

    by Kai245

    I am absolutely loving it thank you.

  • Good app, but not great ecosystem

    by Pelican - JM

    The app itself is one of the better reading apps that I’ve used. I like the highlights, comments, and ability to make in app Bible and reference purchases. No attempt though was made to complete an ecosystem. There is a website, but no ability to see and sync the notes and highlights from the app. No ability to restore purchases in one app to another app. It all seems very disjointed and does not flow in a nice fashion. Overall though, the reading app is much better than others that have a better ecosystem but lost touch with what a good app should be.

  • Great source

    by Gauchodoc

    Can be tedious at times especially on an IPhone ; maybe it's just my fingers. Seems to lag a lot . But the amount of information available on search is great.

  • Jw58

    by jlw58

    If you need an iPhone study bible ie. one to take notes in and highlight this is pretty darn good one.

  • So Blessed

    by RMarkhm

    I am often on the couch nursing my 3 month old baby and can't reach my bible, so I'm thankful that I've finally found a good app that has the NIB version :) that way I can still do my study while I'm doing my other job!

  • Best and easiest to use.

    by RHP-BigDaddy

    This version is so easy to manage and bible study packages are great. A little more end user instructions would make it five stars.

  • The BEST Bible App By Far!

    by WordWarrior777

    This is my favorite app. The people complaining are not using the sync correctly. I love that you keep adding features and that your Bibles are so affordable. Thank you for what you are doing to spread God's Word.

  • This is great

    by Teddy77bear

    I enjoy having all my bibles on the same app. Thank you for fixing the sinc issue, so I can have all my paid bibles on both of my ipads.

  • A.R.

    by LoveTheLORD7

    I made a big mistake updating this app. I was able to use it to its full capacity before the stupid update. Now it doesn't sync so I am not able to use the verse for the day and the word for the day. I understand that updates are supposed to make things better, but I have learned the hard way that a lot of app updates can make your app useless and worse than before. Why should I have to sync when I was getting the word and verse for the day w/out syncing? They added in something extra to do and I lost out on 2 great parts of the app I can't use because the sync doesn't work. I wish they could have left it the way it was! Thanks for nothing! Can you fix it back or make the sync work for everyone please?

  • Amazing!

    by Sille17

    I am blown away by the ease of this Bile app. I find it so easy to select the book, chapter, and verse I desire. While I still enjoy turning the pages of my Bible, I also enjoy the quick reference of this app.

  • Great!

    by Alwaysjusme

    The best app made :-)

  • Won't sync

    by Musicxever

    App won't sync my purchases from my iphone to my ipad. I paid 5.99 for a version I can't read on my ipad.

  • Love this app!

    by TN Debbie

    So convenient!

  • Bible 1 app

    by Spirit212

    Great app. Easy to use.

  • Excellent Information

    by Wordnet

    I so enjoy this program!

  • Great App

    by ChrisChandler

    I got this app to try and enhance my gospel study. This app is great because I can easily switch between different translations to help me understand somewhat difficult passages. The app works fine. It is easy to navigate and use. It's my favorite bible app thus far.

  • Glad to find NRSV!

    by Sogowan

    Have tried numerous other bible apps, but had not been able to locate NRSV

  • What Does God Say?

    by It's B Baby

    Used it to share with my child verses of correction for his most recent bump in the road. Various verses easily accessed over dinner to guide us all to the behaviors of Christ!

  • Nice app. Early to search. Nice layout

    by Renz3

    This works very well! I recommend it highly.

  • Mr. Bard

    by Biz an

    Would love to have the ability to have it read to me when I'm not able to look at the words. Other than that, this app is great. Would like to be able to write notes even if there is no internet connection.

  • Christian sword of the spirit

    by Kenny Segun

    Helps to fulfill the hunger and thirst of the christian. The message version is the most comprehensive I have seen so far.

  • Can't Wait To Read

    by Radar37

    I have developed my reading program: check word of the day and verse of the day; then - the 30 day devotional reading. Then on to the chapter I am reading ~ following my reading schedule to read the Bible through - with understanding.

  • Awesome

    by XxBoneYarDxX

    Best bible app out there!!!!

  • Very good App

    by sealMD

    This is a good, solid app, which I use daily. Likes: 1) It has the NIV 1984 version, which is hard to find nowadays. 2) Decent highlighting function, which allows you to highlight just a portion of a verse (doesn't limit you to highlighting the entire verse). Multiple highlighting choices (underline, highlight, mult colors) 3) Automatic sync between all my devices (eg, if I'm reading Philippians 4:7 on my iPhone and then open this app on my iPad, it automatically takes me to Phil 4:7) 4) Search function searches across multiple (all?) English translations 5) "Search" button is available directly from the standard reading screen (ie, doesn't require multiple clicks to find it) Dislikes: 1) Often asks for a manual sync. Not sure what this is for, since it automatically syncs between all my devices where I'm at in my reading 2) Cumbersome method for going to a particular passage (wish they did it more like YouVersion, where the book, chapter, and verse are at the top of the screen and you can just click on any one of them to change them) 3) No audio versions available (YouVersion has audio versions available where you just click on an icon within your reading pane and it starts reading to you)

  • Excellent app!!

    by Jeremiha

    Very useful and easy to use! Thanks guys!

  • Really enjoy it!!

    by Enjoy using it!!

    I am really enjoying this program. I like the tools and the ability to keep my notes. The program sometimes lags and this can very frustrating specially when i pay for a particular version.

    by Kelly Cook

    I wish I Gould cut and paste like I used to be able too...other than that I love it! And it had been so so slow why? It takes it 5 minutes to get to my daily reading

  • The best

    by Ray541

    The best Bible app. Clean, simple, great flexibility between versions. Great search engine. Simply , the best.

  • Better than ever

    by Cassie Sea Sea

    The new update allows for different translation and now you can really use it for studying and record keeping for what you have already studied. Still a little difficult to flip back and forth. Over great app!!

    I love this software.I am enjoying reading through the bible.

  • Bible

    by Big skip65

    Very helpful. Quick and easy to find bible passages.

  • Annoyed EVERY TIME I use it!

    by K. McLean

    This app doesn't allow me to go back and forth to add notes and verses to save them to notes without having to save it after I add each new note or verse. It deletes my notes. The search method isn't efficient. However, if your goal is to read verses, it works well but I want an app I can read verses, take notes (effectively), and reference them later! I did away with my notebook during sermons, in hopes, this app would take the place of my notebook, but it didn't!

  • Awesome resource!

    by 1TopTree

    I don't think I could manage daily with out it!

  • Can be annoying...

    by Sean Mahon

    As a bible it is functional. But when doing a search the way it scrolls is idiotic. Instead of a smooth scrolling motion it jumps to the next page of results. This is quite annoying...

  • Love this App


    It's is by far the best Bible App I have tried. It has everything I need. I've used it on my iPad to teach Sunday school, and Bible Study. It hold all my notes. I LOVE IT. GOD Bless.

  • Bible+1
