  • Best Bible app

    By rogersm7
    Excellent Bible app, really enjoying studying with this app and also easy to carry when you don’t have room to bring your real Bible.
  • Black Friday sale

    By Ekaterin
    Today is Black Friday and your app is advertised on special for 7.99 but when I try to download it within the app, it tells me that the price is $21.99. What price is correct?

    As far as I know I’m using a free bible app and I like it a lot. I only know how to ask for a definition and to highlight so far
  • CSB —- Review

    By Idahoborn
    I love this app. It makes my daily walk with Jesus easy to access through scripture readings. I can take it with me wherever I go and when I have to wait for an appointment, have a free moment during the day, or want to look something up, I have it right in my hand. Don’t we all usually have our cell phone ‘in our hand’ most of the day? Why not be like the Hebrews and have your personal ‘phylactery’ available anywhere or anytime!
  • Focused on the Word

    By BeardedLaity
    It has quite a few clever ways of pulling external info in and doesn’t have the commercial feel of Bible.coms Bible app. I like having alternate translations free of charge in the Bible app, but the reading plans have become book advertisements and the gamification and community seems to be the primary focus. Tecarta lets me get to a passage quickly with the scroll wheel, and it feels like the Bible is the primary focus in this app—not reading streaks, social networking, and thousands of “reading plans”. This still has all the features I want in a daily reader: a verse of the day, ability to highlight passages and add notes, cross-references, a compact tool for sharing verses to Facebook (if that’s you’re thing) or as text messages, and an audio option (I use the narration, haven’t tried their text to speech option). I would like to see a “reader’s version” that hides the chapter and verse numbers, footnotes, headings, etc. and maybe a way to export notes and verse references to a simple journal, xml file, Wordpress or Medium blog. Overall, really clean app.
  • My favorite

    By LGHotcakes
    It offers many options. Translations, text size, scrolling or page curl. For me the page curl is comforting and helps me "feel-the-love" since I used traditional bibles most of my life.
  • CSB update

    By LOJAC™️
    The in-app update for the CSB will not completely update.
  • Nice free way to get and to listen to the CSB

    By GTD Meister
    Great app for reading and listening to the CSB. Pros: > Free, for the CSB Bible > REALLY like listening to the CSB. You can listen to the Bible offline if you want to download all the audio files (comes to 1.1G for the whole Bible, around 265MB for the New Testament) > Clear format Cons: > Apps is highly proprietary: Holman material only. > Study Bible note sets can be purchased in-app. They’re a bit pricey, on par with their respective hardback printed versions (which I cannot understand) considering the rather narrow range of resources with which it can be used. > Why full justified text? Creates wide spaces for larger font sizes This will never be my “main” Bible study app for the simple reason that it can only be used with a narrow range of Holman resources. This app is a convenient way to have the CSB open along with my “main” Bible study app, for which I can purchase resources from all the leading Bible publishers.
  • Page turning is crisp.
