    Whether you're new to Christianity or not, the Bible is a good resource for learning about the religion from its roots and how it spread to the rest of the world. With over 800 pages of rich digital text, there's so much to learn, including prominent figures such as Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.

  • Reviews should come up AFTER each use! Feb 8, 2022

    By Nonickname11212
    It is hard to remember any problems I’ve had with the app during a prior session, and I submit that the review opportunity should pop up after each use, rather than when someone starts using the app. I think that would help in identifying useful problems, issues and praises for the app. It is somewhat difficult and frustrating to bring up previous notes one has made. I make a lot of notes with scriptures which I need to review and further consider at a later point. But I can’t always find them! However, after further use, it’s pretty easy. Secondly, it is also difficult to remove a bible study plan that shows up four times under the selected plan list. I think I finally figured it out last night, but we’ll see... Thirdly, I do greatly enjoy the app, including the daily Bible verses and the opportunity to create a picture with the verse, or even use one’s own photos! That is fun! On the Bible study side, I love the ability to flip from one Bible version to another with great ease, while keeping with the passage you’re currently focused on. I use that option the most! It is also easy to find a verse one is looking for, or Bible chapters. I do enjoy and appreciate this app. Thank you for including such useful and creative options. Also, thank you for presenting the option for review and input, which I trust you read and take action on those you can identify as good for the app. Thank you for your time and consideration of the above matters.

    I liked this app a lot and still do. I just appreciated the simplicity of the app in the past. Now, on the homepage, having people provide a verse of the day story is something I wish was optional. In other words, I wish there was a tab or an "x" to click to remove it as well as the featured plans. Those take up a lot of real estate on the homepage for people who may not want these options.

    I love the Bible app. It is remarkably one of the most helpful apps I have. It is super accessible, especially when you’re so busy you forget to read your Bible or spend some devotional time. I love the daily verse reminders, the numerous ways we can keep track of our reading, the beautiful options for making images out of verses. There is even an option for writing down prayers, and you can choose to make it private or public with friends. In the hustle and bustle of daily living, I am able to jot down a quick prayer and it doesn’t mean much at the moment, but months or weeks later I’d look back to it and realize just how impactful it was. Because it is so easy to write down a simple and quick prayer in the app, it helps with practicality: you can pray over it right away. And that one prayer changes a lot of things. I’m grateful for all the Bible app plans; there are so many options, short ones and long ones. I especially love the chronological and canonical reading plans. I love that the Bible app collaborates with a lot of Christian artists and preachers all over the country, even the world, and is able to make their voice, their teachings, and their wisdom accessible to the multitudes like me. Overall, an amazing app! Edit: lately there’s been trouble with bookmarking. The app doesn’t seem to stick to what you read last time, and it is difficult to keep track of what you read. I hope they fix this. Perhaps it is just on my end.

    Great app! Plenty of reading plans and devotionals. Any translation you want. Notes, highlights, bookmarks, and the ability to make qoutes on pictures. Only thing I would suggest, is when I get ahead on the reading plans, it would be nice if it would jump to whatever day I am on instead of always being on the day I should read now. Minor complaint, though.
  • My all time favorite app since 2012 Feb 18, 2022

    By Co-owner of Bella Valentine
    This app has been life changing for me. It helps me connect with God and the Word. There is a daily scripture and video that helps you apply the scripture of the day. You can search reading plans based on emotions or topics or anything. You can also search for specific scriptures based on the words you remember and look by book or sang related scripture. You can do reading plans alone, invite others to join you or make it private so no one knows the current plan you are reading. This app has helped many through many chapters in my life and I continue to use it weekly and daily. I searched for reading plans when I lost a job, was preparing for marriage and nor that I have been going through parenthood. I am so grateful for the technology that this app provides for me to see what God’s Word says about anything. This app offers the Bible in many languages that continue to grow and many versions of the bible. You can compare a verse with other versions to get a better understanding, make a note about it, share it with others through social media, other apps, email or text. You can make images with a verse or several and share it that way or make an album of photos in your phone with the scriptures you need to focus on at this point in your life. I use the app on my phone and iPad and I am so grateful to the developers for making this amazing app and continue to make it better through th years! Thank you so much!

    YouVersion Bible app is the best way to start the day. Getting a daily Bible reading, devotional and guided prayer in my email every morning is the perfect way to start the day. The app also has a searchable Bible, a library of devotionals that are organized by topic and season and other helpful Bible tools. I really like being able to switch between various Bible versions to get a better understanding about a particular verse.

  • Love the verse of the day. Change the wave of color across the screen Feb 9, 2022

    By Tampa group hound!
    I am at the 161 consecutive week mark of being in this app. I start my day with the verse of the day and thoroughly enjoy the video messages that accompany them each day. The format and question at the end is thought provoking. And many times I have saved the daily prayer in my library so I can come back to it and pray again. I have highlighted text and created a library of verses to help me in specific situations. I like creating my own library of topics this way. I have participated in several Bible plans and a couple of daily challenges. I have enjoyed each one and they have enhanced my bible knowledge and I have grown in faith with each one. It warms my heart and soul knowing that this app is translated into so many languages to unify our world. Because of this app, more people of all nationalities have the opportunity to follow Jesus. The only corrective comment I would ask the developers to consider is to take off the wave of color that fades across the opening of the prayer of the day and carries to the verse of the day aa well as the ending prayer. This wave of color is quite distracting. Many times it is a light to dark concept which not only makes the text hard to read; but it just doesn’t feel like the Lord. I have felt like the devil is washing the screen. My hope is that this review will be seen by the developers to make this change. Let’s stay in the light of God while we enjoy the app.

    I've been using this app for many years now. They have made great improvements over the years and it has become very user friendly and helpful. I love having the Bible read to me every day and l can follow along as the scripture moves along with the voice so I can follow along. The Word becomes more precious as I hear it each day. I’d be lost without this app!!
  • Great app Feb 11, 2021

    By KHaos 24/7
    On the plus side, I like being able to highlight passages, save them and add notes, read different versions and do that side by side to compare translations. I like pretty much all the features and it has helped me gain a better understanding of the Bible simply by being able to read it. I’m on my second time through reading it. It’s extremely convenient being on my devices instead of having to carry an actual copy around. This way I can jump in any time of day and read a little more. I like being able to connect with other people through the app. I like how it keeps track of daily reading streaks. Sometimes that actually helps me remember to do daily reading when I don’t necessarily feel like it because don’t want to break my streak. The only thing that bugs me about the app is the way you phrase the question when you ask for a rating and review. “Do you love the Bible App?” I’m sure I’m getting into the weeds too much, but you have an app for THE BIBLE which is all about the source and definition of love. It’s about loving other people and loving God, not inanimate objects, not money, not animals and certainly not apps. I guess I just think it’s kind of stupid to have an app about the Bible and then ask if I “love” the app. Seems like the creator of the app didn’t connect all the dots or didn’t actually read the Bible. As apps go this is 1 minor thing compared to many great features, it just really bugs me for some reason.

    The recent update has ruined the app for me. I'm seriously considering removing this app from all devices. I find the screen to be cluttered with unnecessary extras. The focus should be on the scripture. There is no need for the video next to verse of the day and so on. There has been some changes to the app since my last review. The changes helped to improve the experience when using the app. The home page is less cluttered and it is more visually appealing. I am back to using this app daily.

    The app is literally bugged several comments showing its bugged or not working as intended. Book mark resets all the time. I used this app for 2 years without a problem and now it doesn't work correctly at all. The audio is nice to help keep track of my place when reading ive finished it twice now with daily reading. I would hope it would get resolved soon.

  • 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!
  • Really amazing and VERY helpful Feb 23, 2022

    By Todd Derek
    The convenience is simply amazing that you can just plug your phone and look up information at will. I really like how you can take notes and highlight what you read and it also keeps a log. I love the fact that I can select different versions of the Bible instantly. For some reason when your phone falls asleep and you open the Bible app again sometimes the app has to reload and loses your place. That iPad version allows me to take notes a little bit better than the iPhone version because it’s not very easy to switch back-and-forth from reading to creating notes on the iPhone version. I hope they address this in the future. I really love the reminder at a specific time each day for the word of the day. They have a new streak feature which counts the days each day you open up the Bible app which is great! However, if you miss one day it resets everything all the way back to day one. Somehow I wish they can use some support system that collects all of your days like you open the Bible and connected with God‘s word 360 times last year and only missed five days. I also like the social aspect of connecting with your friends and family as to what you were reading. However, there doesn’t seem to him much discussion from the social aspect, but maybe that’s me and my friends. Who is I totally recommend downloading this is in free app connecting with God each day. May the Lord bless you.

    Bible versions are abundant. No ads, so I like it very much. I'd like to request if you can separate searching to reading. Coz everytime that I need to search for a scripture, I am losing the one I'm reading. So I need to remember where I left off. It would be very much helpful if you could do that. Godbless

    As others have said, I too have been using this app for years and love it. I especially enjoy the in depth explanation of the daily scripture. My only criticisms is that in the devotional section, there are often things said that I want to share with the world , however I am not able to copy a portion of the text. I would find it most helpful if I could just select the desired text and copy for sharing. I would also like to be able to go back to the previous section in the devotional.
  • 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!

    This app is great for devotions and encouragement! There's tons of plans to choose from and you can even do them with your friends who also have the app! This Bible app has helped me grow spiritualy, and enjoy doing my devotions because everything is right here in my phone. I still believe that the good book is best in book form where you can flip through the pages and read the text without having to press the "next page" icon. With a book form of the Bible you can highlight, take notes and just FEEL THE PAGES! Also, I tried to do a whole Bible in a year plan, but it was very uninteresting and I lost interest and dropped out around day 30. I love that the Bible app can be used as a type of social media where people can like your highlighted verses and verse images and ask to be your friend. But it can also be a bit distracting. Instead of really trying to get closer to God, you could just use this app to make it LOOK like you're getting closer to God. All in all, I love the Bible App and overall it is a great place to grow in your walk with the Lord, and it is SUCH a plus to have the Bible in my pocket, complete with ALL the different translations and available in a ton of languages, not to mention the amazing plans that are available. I think it is so nice to have an app like this. However, good things can be used the wrong way, so make sure you have the right intentions when you download this app.
  • Most used app- more than social media 😱 Nov 13, 2020

    I have physical bibles everywhere, but until the Bible app, I never felt like I could connect or find what I needed. This app has made the Bible more accessible and engaging than ever. I can pick bible plans based on my mood or current struggle or goal. The passages I find now never fail to calm me down when I’m feeling stressed. I love that I have so many bible versions at my fingertips and can flip back and forth between them. The NIV version can even be read aloud to you when you don’t have the energy to read whole chapters. My new fave is definitely the prayer feature where I can jot down prayers, how I’m feeling, and can keep track of testimonies when the prayer is answered! The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is I do not like that the app tries to force you to connect with community and add friends to join you. I personally prefer for my Bible and prayer time as quiet, personal time. It’s the one place I shouldn’t have to try to impress others, but the developers are trying to make it into another social media platform. PLEASE allow us to turn off the community feature and friends suggestions, for those who don’t want them. They are really persistent with the the white dot to make sure you see what your community posts. I just want the Bible feature, and we should be able to remove the sections we don’t want to see. Anyways, yep! Pretty great app!

    Like the app very much. Appreciate all the available versions, and the audible reading of numerous versions. Like being able to have 2 versions of the same reference side by side and the compare feature of multiple versions. At one time in the past, you could have 2 different references side by side that were scrollable. That was also very nice, but I haven’t been able to find that feature anymore. Speed in initial opening & in switching between versions has been getting longer and longer. Also would rather have Bible open directly to last read reference as before & then have option to go to daily verse, reading plan, helps videos etc. instead of having to wait for them to complete loading before the Bible is available. The screen seems to have been cleaned up a bit lately, but it was opening looking like a confused collage of advertisements. Overall, I really like the app and use it as my go to online Bible, multiple times on a daily basis. I have others that I use for study/reference. I want yours to open and switch quickly, and to allow quick searches. My eyes are needing help at this stage in life, and I use and appreciate the audio reader very much. Thank you for providing easy access to God’s Holy Word to millions of readers around the world. May God bless your service to His glory and to the saving of souls through the reading of His Word.
  • Two suggestions for 5 stars Dec 31, 2020

    I really do love this app. I can squeeze in just the daily verse on a super busy day or spend time on a plan that is perfect for whatever I might be going through at a particular time in my life. But two things really are frustrating and could easily be improved. 1) I cannot read the itty bitty print on 75% of the graphically designed daily verses. I usually love the background but cannot read the tiny wording and have to make my own version or just skip saving one altogether. Also, they are often way too paraphrased from a verse full of meaning to just barely the main gist. I would love one choice a day with the full verse in larger print! 2) as many other reviewers have noted, the streak feature is so very frustrating. I rarely skip a day and yet my “perfect week” count is lower because only a week of Sunday onward counts. I current am on day 8 in a row but only on day three of this week. I’ve had to do thirteen days to get one week! Can’t seven days in a row be one week? Plus the very long streaks down to a disappointing zero with one missed day. Please tell the talented artists that on a phone the beautiful script is pointless if 50 year old eyes can’t see them. And take of the steak feature if no changes are going to be made. Love the bite size plans of so many topics and easy to interchange version feature!
  • Love it! But a few “wish list” items Nov 14, 2021

    By Win8User
    Wish List 1. I wish that it wouldn’t restart so often. When I leave to go to another app, then come back to it, it often restarts. 2. I wish the audio playback had a “Repeat” mode so I could listen to the same chapter over and over. 3. I wish the “History” list would keep better track of where I was so I could always go back to a previous spot. When I read chapter after chapter, it forgets where I was. 4. I wish that when I took a note on a verse, that the verse would have some kind of indication that there is a note attached to it, so I can tap on the verse later and read the note. 5. I wish that when I highlighted a verse, it would highlight the other translations I like to read. For example, when I highlight a verse in the NIV, I wish it would highlight the same verse in the AMP. Praise: I love all the different versions, the ability to download preferred versions, and the ability to compare verses of different versions. I love the study plans and the ability to create memes from any verse. I love the audio playback. Frustration: I don’t like the note-taking feature because it’s not reliable to go back and forth between notes and Bible reading. And I can never find my notes. I assumed they would be somehow attached to the verse where I took the note, but they’re not.

    I liked this app a lot and still do. I just appreciated the simplicity of the app in the past. Now, on the homepage, having people provide a verse of the day story is something I wish was optional. In other words, I wish there was a tab or an "x" to click to remove it as well as the featured plans. Those take up a lot of real estate on the homepage for people who may not want these options.

    The recent update has ruined the app for me. I'm seriously considering removing this app from all devices. I find the screen to be cluttered with unnecessary extras. The focus should be on the scripture. There is no need for the video next to verse of the day and so on. There has been some changes to the app since my last review. The changes helped to improve the experience when using the app. The home page is less cluttered and it is more visually appealing. I am back to using this app daily.

    I like being able to have a daily devotion on my cellphone. I have it set so the verse of the day picture shows up on my home screen. Sometimes it shows the verse of the day, sometimes it shows a different verse, sometimes it just blank. Have gone to settings and tried different things, nothing works. I have contacted before, tried what was said..still nothing. Did not have any problems until an update.

    *Im only giving it 3 stars until it's fixed* I've been using this app for a few years and I love it, but lately it's been having too many technical issues. 1) the app doesn't send a reminder anymore for my devotionals nor the verse of the day. It will only send right after I open the app and it's way past the time that I have scheduled. 2) my devotional plans will either disappear or duplicates. 3) the audio still plays after I'm done reading and exit the app. Please fix these issues.
  • 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.

    The app is literally bugged several comments showing its bugged or not working as intended. Book mark resets all the time. I used this app for 2 years without a problem and now it doesn't work correctly at all. The audio is nice to help keep track of my place when reading ive finished it twice now with daily reading. I would hope it would get resolved soon.
