In version 1.4 we’ve made notable changes to our free offering to ensure Dwell is demonstrably sustainable in the long term. We’ve moved away from both a Free and Premium plan, and have simplified to one plan: Dwell.
Going forward, all users will be able to listen to all four voices, and access all new features of the app, but users without a subscription will have limited access to content. Our goal is to give new users a great ‘taste’ of the Dwell experience while encouraging those who love our approach (and believe in our vision) to help support the project and make it sustainable. We believe this shift will allow the app to reach sustainability more quickly, which means more exciting and formative features for all users.
Ratings and Reviews
Dwell is the app I never knew I needed!
I read my Bible daily, but this app. I’ve LOVED being able to listed to my bible aloud. There are people in the Bible whose stories I’ve never much thought about, but hearing their stories read aloud has brought me to tears. Hearing the Bible was the only way the Hebrews and early Christian Church were exposed to the Bible. This app brings a little bit of that back to us and allows us to listen as they would have.
This app has four voices to choose from. The graphics are beautiful. They have plans and playlists if you don’t know where to start. They have made long listen stories and passages like “Abraham’s Story” “psalm 119” and others you can choose to listen to if you find a block of time and can listen. They also have short listen passages for the time crunch. And if you like listening from start to finish, they have a library with every book of the New Testament and they are actively working on finishing up the Old Testament (currently there are 7 books: genesis, exodus, 1,2 Samuel, psalms, proverbs and Ecclesiastes).
This app is so well done and I am thrilled with how it’s turned out!
Super Great App! 😃
Have had the Dwell app for a few months now and have been enjoying it immensely! I tried out the various options with the music and voices and found that I enjoy them all, but especially enjoy the default settings.
I appreciate how they have it easily set up the have a Bible portion of the day, rather than just a verse and have it set so I can have a reminder each morning where I can just swipe and go straight there first thing when I wake up. 😊
I also like how they have various study sections, reading plans, and even short portions set aside that you can listen to if you don’t have a lot of time.
The only thing I would add to the app if I could is having the Word present in a written form as well when you’re listening to it, so you could follow along if you desired to. I figure this would probably slow down the app a bit, and is probably why they had chosen not to do so. I resolve it by having an additional Bible app that I can easily go to, since I can listen to Dwell and be in whatever other app I desire at the same time- which is super nice. 😊
A must-have for every blind person
As a blind person, I've always looked for a good audio Bible. Several apps have audio, as a kind of nod to hearing the word, but even though they have several versions, the voice is rarely that good, there's no music, and accessibility of the app with VoiceOver, especially when using footnotes, is liable to change drasticly from version to version. This app is perfect in almost every way, except for reasons of time, like more books of the Bible, other translations, especially the CSB, please, and commentaries. I'd like just one other thing from the app, and that is footnotes. Whenever they are in a Bible, it makes understanding a lot easier. They can be spoken by the currently selected voice, and a toggle in settings can turn them on or off by default, and a toggle in the player can turn them on and off for the current queue. Also, I hope that a version like the Complete Jewish Version is recorded, so that I can know the actual pronounciation of the Hebrew and Greek names, along with the other advantages of having a Messianic Jewish Bible.
