5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome app March 29, 2011
Love this app, helps me stay in the Word. Would recommend it to anyone who is interested in growing in their faith. There are many versions available to read and, unlike many other Bible apps where you can only get the ASB/KJV for download, there are many modern versions available for download through gracious partnerships with their publishers. The developers are constantly working to bring new improvements and innovative technology to it, and the support staff is absolutely the best in the world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bible App with Best Price July 29, 2011
I have been using this app for 4 years now and have quite a collection of bookmarks and notes. I find this is a great way to follow in church and highlight sections for review. The ability to switch Translations on the fly is invaluable. I use NIV as my base Bible but often go to NKJV or ESV to see the text differently. When Apps were conceived I think this is exactly what was in the mind of developers. A handy easy to use app with incredible flexibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love The Bible App by YouVersion March 22, 2011
This Android app by YouVersion has to be one of the best Android Apps out there. Not only are offerings of written and audio Scripture great, but the user interface is super sleek and worth a look by other app creators. And the fact that the interface is localized and available in more than 10 languages is a great bonus!

I'm so happy that the Kindle Fire version of you version takes full advantage of the larger Kindle screen size. It displays slightly more than twice the Bible text than what is displayed on my Droid X (4.3 inch display). Unlike the iPad version which actually displays slightly less than the Kindle fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars It speaks!!! November 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm not a very religious person but thought this would be a good app just to have. I was surprised that this had a audible option. This makes it great for children and adults. The ablilty to hear a voice recite verses makes this invaluable. I can't believe this was a free app. No disappointments here. I can't speak on the accuracy of the verses but from what I've read and heard they seem to be correct.

There's nothing like being able to take your bible with you wherever you go. At times I run out the house and forget my bible for church but this comes in handy.

Does the app work offline?
The previous version worked well with my iPad2, but the new version has a problem. My church does not have WiFi so I have to use the offline version. Every time when I have to switch from one book to another (ex. from John to Romans), it kicks me out. Not sure if YouVersion is aware of this... Read More
