We've continued to polish the look and feel of the app to make it even easier to read. We've streamlined the bottom controls to be more intuitive, and added an about us screen for additional information about ABS.

Ratings and Reviews

The Best Looking Bible app


This app clearly gets design right, which is where so many other Bible apps fall short. However, there really should be some way to select text. I'm okay not being able to highlight passages within the app, but at least let me copy them to another app.

No Offline Reading


Design is solid, but if you don’t have internet connection it never loads. Requiring internet to load certain versions is understandable, but disabling the entire app when offline is silly.

Good start

Graduating Sr.

I like American Bible Society and much of the material they offer. I was excited to learn I can now access the Bible and devotionals on my iOS devices! I only wish the apps would not crash and like BibleMinded would offer sync. I love the small app size, simplicity, modern look, and lack of "fluff" of their apps. Reading and studying the Word shouldn't be complicated. Thanks, American Bible Society.
