I've been using this app for years and I've really enjoyed using this app. It makes reading and studying the Bible so much easier and accessible. I only wish that I could turn the pages by swiping left and right instead of using these tiny buttons that don't always work. In my opinion this is the best bible app in the store. It has so many different features, so many versions for free, daily devotionals and if you want to you can connect with friends and share different passages with them.
I love this app, it keeps getting better and better with all of the updated options and so many bible studies, daily devotionals, daily bible verses, you can add your friends and share with them, highlight verses, write notes on fav verses, create your own pictures with verses, so many versions of different bibles, you can compare the versions. Now you can watch videos. Sooo much more! Its a must have app! Only issue i have is finding people in my contacts from phone when trying to invite or share with a friend. Hope that gets easier. Oh and its freeee!
THIS IS TOTALLY THE BEST REPLACEMENT TO A PHYSICAL BIBLE, PAPER OR ELECTRONIC!! I guess I use my phone for many things but none can be as important as having my BIBLE ON MY PHONE TO USE ONLINE OR OFFLINE. I have a Bible for Church that I can Search, Make Notes, Hilight, etc. And it also is an INSPIRATIONAL MEDIA that READS TO ME which is what I do at night in the dark WHEN I PRAY. I have FINISHED some WONDERFUL BIBLE PLANS and have used the YouVersion SUPPORT in the past who when asked ANSWERED all my QUESTIONS. Try It, Read It, Live It !!
I had to drop this from 5 stars to 4 do to the fact I can't listen to it while my phone is off. It used to work great I had no problems with it and loved being able to listen to scripture while I worked. Now it will only play for a couple minutes once I put my phone back in my pocket. So I have to pull it out of my pocket and start playing it and it usually doesn't start off where it ended. It usually start at the beginning of the chapter is on. This is a big hassle. I've deleted and downloaded the app and also used multiple headphones thinking that might be the issue but with no luck.
I absolutely love this app! Not only can I read and highlight scripture but I can create and save verse images plus there are a lot of good devotions that you can do for free. The only recommendation that I would love to see is I would love to have it where I can set up multiple accounts within the app for my children on their shared device without having to sign in and out each time.
The daily scriptures are a sense of clarity on my dark days and much needed guidance on all others. I especially love the devotional plans. You can even have friends all over participate in a plan with you. It allows you to leave a comment about what you think the reading is saying to you and share it with your friends. I love it, I tell anyone willing to listen about this app.
