Which Bible app do you use on your phone or tablet? In today’s technological world, there is an app for practically everything. A few years ago, we could say, “there’s an app for that”. Today, we have to say, “there are Several apps for that”. There are several Bible apps available for our phones, tablets, computers, etc. So, which one is the best?
Like most things, we should really be asking: “which one is best suited for ‘my’ personal, unique use”.
I don’t pretend to be the most highly educated Bible scholar. But, think I have found what may prove to be the most useful Bible app that I have personally seen. (I tend to keep, for testing, over 600 apps on my iPhone at all times. I am confident that when I recommend an app that it is truly useful.)
The Bible app that I have come to love is available at https://www.bible.com/app. You can read the description below. (I copy/pasted the description from the app store.)
