About this app

Powerful Bible Study tool

"AndBible: Bible Study" is a powerful, yet easy to use, offline Bible study application for Android. The app does not aim to be simply a Bible reader, but focuses on being an advanced tool to do in-depth personal Bible study.

This application is developed by Bible readers, for Bible readers. It aims at helping you make your Bible study convenient, deep and fun. The best part about this non-profit community project is that it is open-source, completely free, and contains no advertisements. Having been built from the ground up for Android, it is a small download, and therefore very efficient and remarkably fast.

A few popular Bible versions (of the many available) are KJV, NASB, NET, and also popular commentaries like Matthew Henry and John Gill.

Powerful Bible Study features

The application has many insightful, original features, that makes a complex and deep Bible study experience smoother than ever. The most notable features are as follows:

* Split text views that enable comparing translations and consulting commentaries
* Workspaces allow multiple Bible study setups with their own settings
* Strong's integration allows Greek and Hebrew word analysis
* Linked cross-references, footnotes, and documents; jump to cross-references and footnotes by simply tapping a link; perform in-depth study of the Scriptures by using hyperlinked commentaries (Gill, Matthew Henry etc.), cross-reference collections (Treasure of Scripture Knowledge, TSKe) and other resources.
* Advanced text to speech with speak bookmarks, enabling a smooth Bible listening experience
* Flexible searching
* Advanced bookmarking & highlighting features with personal study notes
* Study Pads for adding notes and Bible references while listening to sermons.
* Reading plans: set goals for reading the Bible
* Vast library of documents: Bible translations, theological commentaries, dictionaries, maps, and christian books, totaling over 1500 documents in over 700 languages, legally distributed by Crosswire and other SWORD repositories.
* Offline: the only time you need internet is for downloading documents.

Let’s make the best Bible app together!

This is feature rich with a good sense layout and utility, so it deserves full stars. The only improvements I would like include the window buttons could have the option to be made bigger to make the window system easier and quicker to use (for those of us with larger fingers). Also, I wish the user generated data would export to a better database table/schema. I can't translate the indicies to a match a note or tag to a particular verse(s) - I like to have this for external use.

The interface was incredibly hard to navigate. It went through multiple download processes to get one version, which you shouldn't have to be downloading in the first place as this should be built in the app. There's no way, to my knowlege, to go to a specific verse or chapter or even book in the Bible. In fact, in was incredibly hard to even scroll up or down as it would take long periods to load and would move to completely random books in the Bible when I scrolled. 0/10 wouldn't recommend

Sorry for the experience. The slowness seems like a problem with the device not the app. 1. Downloads: We have users all over the world. They download languages they need, not just the ones we include. 2. Tap the verse reference at the top to open the selector. 3. Check https://www.youtube.com/@AndBible for tutorials and see why many like the app.

Edit.. changed my review to 5 stars because of using the day/night mode incorrectly. Four stars for just one thing... the latest version ate the navigation buttons at the bottom of my phone. Please fix this. Otherwise, it's a great, robust app. It would be awesome if it still had the ESV (I did give Crossway my 2¢). The app is starting to become overly, uh, "engineered"? It used to have tons of functionality and was simple, now is more complicated, but still the best one out there.
