Product Description

The New American Standard Bible for Android

What happens when you combine a group of engineers in Silicon Valley with the New American Standard Bible? You get the Talking NASB 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 NASB Bible by Tecarta.

A simple, powerful design will allow you to easily read the NASB 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 ESV 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 NASB is widely regarded as the most literal of 20th century translations. The NASB is a word-for-word style adaptation of the ASV. Special attention was given to the rendering of verb tenses to give readers a translation that is as close as possible to the sense of the original Greek and Hebrew texts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Accurate January 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Initially, I was very concerned that the digital version was'nt going to be 'word-for-word' what the printed version was; so I sat down for a while and just started picking random scriptures out of the printed version, then looked them up in the digital version. To my surprise, out of about 100 different scriptures, I found no mistakes, not even a type-o....nice.

Great Bible App. easy to navigate and has many great features for study and reading. I especially like the cross reference and footnote features which are easy to access in the text. The text-to-speech feature for having verses read aloud is really good also. I use this app on my Kindle Fire and it works great. Also have the NKJV from Tecarta. Good for comparing verses while reading. I highly recommend this App to all. PC

5.0 out of 5 stars Praises for This App March 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
Having used another book for the NASB Bible and experiencing issues that made it unusable, I searched and found this App. This is far beyond the one I had used for 3 months. Search can be done by the book you're reading, the Old Testament, and New Testament, or complete Bible. Navigation between books is quicker and can be done with a click without typing in the name. Notes can be stored in folders to make it easier to use and access past notes without scrolling through all your notes. Different colors are available for your highlighting. Accessing commentaries and cross references is available through simple touches. Copying and pasting couldn't be done with my previous book but can be done with this app. You will have to pay a nominal fee to add commentaries but it's a great addition.

Other reviewers had difficulty with font size and text to speech but I was able to figure it out with a little persistence. To change font click on the book Icon then use the Icon that looks like a gear to access font size. Use the provided slider until you see the size you want. Another Icon to look for is the speaker. After touching the Icon so it lights up, look at the bottom of the passage and press the Icon that is a triangle to start reading at the first of the chapter. Persist in your efforts and soon you'll be finding ease in navigation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Requires internet connection! April 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
For the most part I like the Tecarta series of bibles for android. However, to me a serious flaw happened today when I took my tablet to church to use the Tecarta bible during service and a box came up requiring me to connect to the interenet. I couldn't connect at that time and the program shut down. This is not a food feature to have on a a bible that is stored on the tablet. Maybe it will only happen this once. If it happens repeatedly I would call the Tecarta series of bibles a fail as it would be useless w/o an internet connection. Hope they fix this flaw!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Digital Bible I Have Used November 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have used many different digital Bibles on several different devices over the years. Many were really good, but I only used them on the go. My analog Bible was still my main Bible. This app has finally changed that.

This is not an exhaustive Bible study program, but it's an excellent Bible. The available offline versions, the ease of uses, beauty of the fonts and layout, and the ease of highlighting and note taking make this my Bible of choice these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glad I found this Bible! April 3, 2014
Verified Purchase
I was looking for an NASB Bible for my Kindle Fire HDX and I am sold glad that I found this app. Not only is it an NASB Bible, but I can actually listen to it read the Bible to me! I absolutely love it. In fact I love it so much I found the same app for my HTC One and put it on my smartphone as well. I prefer to read the NASB because it is said to be the most literal translation.I highly recommend this app.
