Product Description

The Amplified Bible for Android

What happens when you combine a group of engineers in Silicon Valley with the Amplified (AMP) Bible? You get the Amplified Bible by Tecarta – a very cool and fast Android app designed for Bible Study, quick navigation and easy note taking. No other Bible app matches the design, functionality and affordability of the Amplified Bible by Tecarta.

A simple, powerful design will allow you to easily read the AMP Bible, navigate, search, highlight verses, bookmark, make margin notes, copy/paste or take notes. Additional translations such as The Message, New Living Translation (NLT), NIV or NASB can be affordably purchased via in-app purchase. Find out for yourself why Tecarta Bibles are the top selling Bibles on Android smart phones and tablets.

The Amplified Bible is designed to 'amplify' the text, this translation contains a system of punctuation and other typographical features to bring out shades of meaning present in the original texts. The Amplified Bible takes both word meaning and context into account in order to accurately translate the original text from one language into another. It does this through the use of explanatory alternate readings and amplifications to assist the reader in understanding what Scripture really says. Multiple English word equivalents to each key Hebrew and Greek word clarify and amplify meanings that may otherwise have been concealed by the traditional translation method.

4.0 out of 5 stars great translation January 1, 2013

I've always enjoyed the amplified Bible and having it on my Kindle is wonderful. Found it a little difficult to get around in it, though. Other Bible apps are easier to use.

Review extensively revised 14 Jun:

I've been using Bible Apps since I got my Kindle Keyboard three years ago. Got a Kindle Fire G1 for Christmas 2012 and started trying to use Bible apps on it. Most of the old apps were not too functional on the Kindle Fire platform due to the lack of hard navigation buttons. The best worked like any other book file.

Some of the new 'for Android' apps designed for phones had similar problems. For instance; one of my favorite new Android apps required a hard key Menu button to access key features with no touchscreen workarounds.

Tecarta's app is the first I've found which is properly ported for the Kindle Fire. Something they don't tell you in the blurb is that this is a 'shell' app. Once you buy one of the Bible versions you can add other translations and references to it from within the app and they are automatically integrated.

This app works very well, navigation is easy and most of the features work intuitively (see update). I only gave four stars initially because The Amplified version doesn't support red letters, yet; (Other versions I loaded into this app do have Red letters, that may be a quirk of the translations themselves not a Tecarta issue) and I couldn't find the controls for the notes and bookmarks.

Update 14Jun: Okay... I found the controls for the margin notes, bookmarks, hilighting, etc. I guess I should have spent the time to go through the tutorial screens (sorry, Engineer you know, never read the instructions on digital stuff). The advertising is correct, it is a very intuitive app.

I upgraded the review to 5 stars accordingly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bible for study. March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this program. The the search is great for getting somewhere quickly while everyone else is thumbing through the hardcopy while I wait patiently for even the pastor. The highlight feature makes for a great way to study and research.
So far I have nearly purchased the entire collection from his publisher and use it daily on my kindle fire. I even have this on my android phone which links the notes and highlights between these devices.
However you can still do it the analog way but I am sold on this programs performance. I don't know what else to say other than I highly recommend this to anyone who reads the Bible for study. Even though a regular Bible will work; This just does it better even though the message is the same. Try it out.
