  • Awesome app! Feb 14, 2021

    By CLMistler81
    Great bible app! It has the ability to read the scriptures to you while you read along which I absolutely LOVE! It has the ability to highlight and compare verses to other translations to try and understand the scriptures more fully. Also I love the function of creating verse images. And I love that they have updated it so I can format it to fit my wallpaper of my phone... so it can help me memorize scriptures better by saving at as my phone’s wallpaper. The only suggestions I would like to see updated is if they could allow the ability to share links in the comments or at the very least the ability to copy the link from the comment. As of right now you can’t copy anything from the comments. I would love to share links to sermons that is pertaining to the verses my friends are highlighting or studying... I’m sure there a lot of glitches and safe guards you would have to put in place to insure no one can share anything inappropriate. As a parent I like knowing my kids can’t click on anything and see anything they shouldn’t, so not sure if the benefit would outweigh the risks... Also if they could give us the ability to look up web searches for images that would pertain to the verse I’m creating an image for... if not no biggie. I just search it in my web browser and save the images and create them after they’ve been saved to my phone but thought it might make it more seamless. All in All a great App!!! I love it and use it mostly everyday.

    This is an amazing app! There's tons of tools for someone who really wants to get in and learn. I recommend this constantly to everyone I know who is reading the Bible. Favorite Feature: This app shows the differences in translations with a comparison feature, very useful if you're trying to understand a verse or avoid translations that may be sketchy. The only thing that's upset me lately is adding participants to a plan. I can't seem to send a invite link once the plan is started anymore.

  • Perfect reason to spend more time with God! Feb 13, 2021

    By pickapeppah
    This easy to navigate app is perfect for fitting God into everything you do! From the ability to quickly reference scripture to delving into many awesome devotionals this app is the best thing on my iPhone. There are hundreds upon hundreds of daily devotionals on any subject you can think of as well as plans to help you read through and understand the entire Bible in whatever timeframes you want or need! There is a cool feature that allows you to set reminders to spend time each day in the Word and getting closer to the Lord. You can even use your creativity to design verse images for yourself and share with others. One of the best features is that there are plenty of devotionals that you can either enjoy reading or use the audio feature to listen in your bed or car or on a walk! Some of the devotionals were written by famous Christian musicians and some even involve some of their songs. One of my two favorite highlights of the Bible App are the Daily story and the verse of the day. It’s something I look forward to reading and listening to each morning or evening and it changes each day. You can also use the application as social media and have “friends” to study and share with and communicate with them through. I have shared this app with so many people and everyone has loved it. There’s no reason not to download it today and get into God’s presence right where you are right now! I absolutely Love it!

    I've used this app for a long time (multiple multiple years) At one time, I would have given it 5 stars. However, this app has been transforming into a social media platform and I am uncertain about how this effects the health of the users (specifically the younger users). I think a mark of this was most clearly demonstrated when the search function stopped by default searching the Bible and instead displayed other materials.

  • Finding my Faith (again) Oct 4, 2020

    By Lbrewer815
    I downloaded this app for my journey into my finding my faith. It’s been 17 years since I prayed or read a Bible. Once I was a well versed Christian lady who attended church twice every Sunday, on Wednesdays and every time there was something going on at the church. Personal tragedy struck and I stepped away from my faith and God. I stepped away from myself. Over the last year I have felt an empty part of me that was wanting. I didn’t know what I was wanting. Then, when I found that I couldn’t even give inspiration to others anymore I hit my knees and that’s when I knew what I was missing. I began looking to God again and talking to him. I came across this app and it has helped me so much! Aside from the Bible which I can read or have it read to me, the Bible studies are very insightful. I love that I can pick from an ever growing list of Bible studies. Anything from depression to marriage and everything in between. The daily inspections and notifications have touched me so many times. It seems like there is always something that comes into notifications right when I need it. Like a text from a friend that just saying “Hey! I am here.” Some things are right on time and exactly what I need at that moment. I love being able to take a verse that moves me and make a pic of it and save to my phone or share on FB. You can connect with friends and family and contacts that also use the app and you can participate in group Bible studies. I love this app!

    As an older Christian I think that maybe with some of the folk who are giving daily messages one needs to be more selective. To introduce yourself as someone who is a leader of this church, or you started that church, or you've written a book, is NOT something to advertise. Just give your message as per The Word of Christ, and that's it.

    The access to every version of the bible I've ever wanted from my phone is unmatched elsewhere. It's free to access AND easy to use. I can switch freely across any version when online, from inside the passage I'm reading. Only need to downIoad 1 version for offline use. So can be very data lite. If a narration exists for any translation I can also access that from the passage. Normal caution required for 'additional' content, which varies wildly, but it is extensive.

    Very good app, with useful features and lots of reading guides for daily devotions with reminders. Able to choose from a multitude of versions, though only current ones, for instance the 1984 version of the NIV is not available. I would give it 5 starts were it not for the automatic scrolling that takes place when opening the book choosing menu, it's an unnecessary and annoying attribute I find! I'm sure some like it, but if there was the option to disable it, that would be ideal.

    Amazing App. So many great features. I will give it a 5 star rating when they create a way to delete all highlights in a chapter, a book or the whole Bible at once. Currently when reading through the Bible in the same version, one more time, one has to deal with deleting all previous highlights one by one!!! 😑 Very cumbersome Very sad that it no longer works on PC (March 2020) That was one of your best features.

    Easy navigation, nice reading inflection. I just wish the reader would READ what was written. Randomly he will make up stuff, and if you're not reading along on the app, you miss it. In the old testament, there was an entire chapter where it says meat offering and the reader says peace offering. He keeps saying "Vittles" instead of "victuals", I get that it's a similar word, but just read what's written. There are countless other examples of subbed or mispronounced words.

    Love this app for bible in various versions, ability to highlight and take notes, and devotionals including the option of studying with others and commenting. Noticed YouVersion Rest is available but cannot get it to work with my Google Home. Not much guidance for troubleshooting. My Google Home just says, "Sorry, I don't understand," when I tell it to 'talk to YouVersion Rest'.

  • The app is getting worse over the last several updates Oct 10, 2020

    By kle1965
    I used to really love this app and gave it a 5 Star rating for years. Lately, the layout has become annoying and not user friendly at all. Sometimes the icon for my daily reading plan is on the home screen and sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it takes me to day one of the plan (super annoying for a year-long plan) & I have to scroll & scroll to get to today’s reading. There’s this big picture of a cell phone at the top of the screen that I can’t get rid of & that has been annoying me for months now. I prefer a more simplistic view. All I want to see on my screen is my record of how many days I’ve used the app in a row, how many weeks; the verse of the day; my current reading plan and that’s it. I don’t want to see some picture of a cell phone nor do I want to see some story (I feel like they’re trying to make it like FB with the annoying stories thing) & it’s just not necessary for a Bible reading app. This is supposed to be a simple tool & I want the ability to make it my simple tool again. If there’s people who like all that extra stuff, then make it optional for them & stop changing it all the time because it’s stressing me out and it is super annoying. We all have enough stress in our lives without an app increasing the stress level. If this pattern of getting worse continues, I will drop my rating down to 3 stars. Bring back the app I used to love a lot!

    The app is great and I've been using it mainly for audio bible. My only concern is that it seems the CSB Audio Bible quality is subpar compared to the same material from Tecarta CSB Audio bible which is also free, btw. It sounds a little bit like it came from the 80s. Maybe it has something to do with the compression of the file. Can this be fixed? Also is there a chance we get back NIV84?

  • Loved this app but the recent update have some issues Nov 24, 2020

    By jelly2k18
    I always loved this app and didn’t mind the app update changes until recently. I loved the app especially when it came to searching scriptures by certain terms if I couldn’t remember the verse number. This was such a good reference for me when discussing with people or doing Bible studies. But now, when I use the search option when typing in key words, it for 1 pulls us other things besides scriptures which I don’t like cuz it gets confusing, and second, when I choose only to search by Bible option, it doesn’t even pull up accurately the key terms mentioned in verses anymore, but random verses that have nothing to do with the terms I typed in. Before I would type in specific words that I knew were in there just wouldn’t remember what exact verse number it was and it would pull up all the scriptures that included those verses, and what was nice is you could filter it to only search by Old Testament only or New, or even by book. This made it so helpful as a reference to find the verses with certain terms. I don’t see this option in the new update now which is annoying cuz if one wants to use this as a Study reference, they cant enjoy those features anymore and no I have to use other apps to use similar features like Blue Letter Bible to do so and it’s not as well put together for that as this app was. Very disappointed in this change please fix this.

  • Amazing app...but could be even better with a couple tweaks Aug 4, 2018

    By AmberLilyB
    Let me start by saying that I love this app. I love that I have God’s word literally at my finger tips wherever I go. I want to give this app 5 stars, and would, if it weren’t for one or two things... 1) the streaks 2) lack of control over privacy settings (who can see what I’ve highlighted/saved) These things seem really minor I’m sure but for me personally they have been a huge distraction and after reading some of the other reviews I can see that I am not alone. And tbh, at first I didn’t mind these features. I thought the streaks thing would be a great feature for accountability and encourage me to stay on it. Instead it just makes me feel discouraged when I open my app after missing a day and the first thing I see is an updated streak with a whopping zero. I’m not saying get rid of it altogether, but could it maybe be put somewhere else?! It’s like stepping on a scale every day when your trying to lose weight. It shifts your focus to the numbers you see. Also, again this is my personal opinion, I’m just not comfortable with everyone I know on the app being able to see what I’m highlighting/saving. It definitely makes me feel a little self-conscience... Some things you just don’t need broadcasted to the whole congregation, ya dig? That’s what small groups are for. I just think it’s a weird thing that we have no control over that setting.

  • Streak Feature is crap! Feb 27, 2018

    By LadyTea3
    I am a big fan of the YouVersion Bible app. I have been using it for 3 years now. I love using the versions of the different Bibles that are found in bookstores. It helps to understand God’s word much better than if you didn’t have that translation from different points of view. My only problem is with new Streak Feature that was implemented last year. While I love seeing the little animation of your numbers going everyday to let you know where you are, I also “hate” that it will either reset it you miss a day or reset if you don’t miss a day. I was on Day 63 today, on my way to my top number of 73 when the app decided to restart me. Now I have to start all over again to see if I can get to my high target number and I am NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT! I made sure every morning that I opened the app, even on the morning that I was going to get my non-hospital stay eye surgery last Wednesday, February 21,2018. The app shouldn’t be able to restart you when it wants to. That should be the person’s decision. How can I try to surpass my top number if I can never get there? UGH! It is frustrating and defeats the purpose of working for a goal. PLEASE FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY!!! This is the second time this has happened to me and I am about to stop using the Streak Feature if I don’t see an improvement it the way it works. I have written about this three times and I have yet to hear back from anybody. Thank you.
