Best Bible app
This Bible app is the best that you’ll get (which makes sense, since it’s been around since the internet began). There are multiple options no other app gives, such as a history of passages you’ve read since downloading the app, the cross reference Treasury of Scripture Knowledge section (shows similar verses based on each word of a verse), and even multiple commentaries (I recommend Matthew Henry, especially if you read the KJV).
The interlinear Hebrew/Greek has crashed on me a handful of times, but opening the app again took me right back to the verses I was looking at. There are just tons of features in BLB that aren’t offered in other apps, even tools I haven’t used before because I forget about them. The interface does seem a little older, but it is not bothersome, and most of the appearance is customizable anyways.
Have you ever used a Bible app that gives you the option to read two Bible versions side by side, chapter by chapter? This is an example of a feature I would use once in a *blue* moon, but it is still awesome to know I have the option.
Blue Letter Bible is the greatest Bible app you’ll get, and for computers their website is even better!
Best Bible app
This is a fantastic app. If I'm looking for a scripture and can only remember part of. If I'm confused about a verse, I can search several translations for clarity. I can also look up the original Hebrew or Greek translation for more insight. If i don't have my favorite bible with me and just want to read the word. I highly recommend this app for beginning readers and well as for those wanting to dig deeper into Gods words to us.
This is the one Bible you cannot do without. I just downloaded this and my mind is completely blown! I can tap any verse and get a wealth of dictionaries, cross-references, commentaries (including audio from Vernon McGee and others), I have interlinear access to Greek and Hebrew, I can see that verse in several translations. Why in the world would any serious Christian not want this? This is an entire Bible library in one app.
