Bible (by LifeChurch.tv) is probably one of the best iPhone and iPad apps in the iTunes app store in terms of quality content, app user interface, continuous upgrades, and price — all totally for FREE (no in app purchases)! This iPhone and iPad (iOS Universal) app has been in the iTunes App Store since just about the birth of the App Store (August 2008). And the developers have continuously worked to improve this Reference app all they way up to its current version 4.0.1, with 38 updates since and a user interface that has got to be one of the most intuitive around.
When you open the app you will get the following information: a bible verse, where you last were reading, daily plans, and last bookmark. You can quickly go into any of these areas or tap in the upper right and access more options like notes, profile, and YouVersion social sites like Facebook and Twitter. Once you tap on any navigation that takes you into the Bible itself, there are more options like settings (bottom left), bookmarks, search, and more. The coolest, yet most subtle, functionality is actually accessing the books of the Bible themselves. Tap on any Bible book name in the top center when reading and this will pull up very quickly all Bible books that can be sorted by book, chapter and verse, either traditional (Old/New Testament) or alphabetical. The Sharing functionality is built in so Christians can readily share God’s word with others when using this app.
As an avid reader of the Bible, I’ve found this app to be a very good one. There are a load of different Bible presentations, some featuring very professional voice overs and many that can be downloaded for offline reading. The Bible versions can also be read and listened to in countless other languages. There are a lot of custom settings for font, night/day reading, and others. More notable features include a variety of daily reading plans and daily devotionals, of which some are from very well-known Christian ministries.
Overall, this iPhone Reference app is excellent, and again, for FREE — this is a no-brainer download. I highly recommend this app if you’re looking for a Bible application or a daily devotional for your iPhone or iPad. Check out all our iPhone app reviews. Crazy Mike
