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!

Yes! Perfection!


I’ve never reviewed an app before, but Dwell is so gorgeous and life-enhancing I want everyone to know about it.

I own several scripture apps, but Dwell is in a league of its own. Finally instead of robo-narration I can listen to nuanced, thoughtful narration of the Bible (ESV translation of all the New Testament and several books of the Old). You can even toggle between narrators (my fave, Felix, is African). There’s peaceful background music to the reading that really enhances it, and clever volume controls so you can decided your own balance of voice and music. (I turned the narration down and just played the music to put my toddler to bed tonight. It’s so peaceful.)

And on the aesthetic side, this is just a stunningly beautiful app. Plus although I like listening chronologically I appreciate how many categories of smaller listening packages there are (Messianic Psalms, for example, or specific doctrinal themes).

I could keep going and going! I’m just so delighted with having found Dwell. I’ve already told my whole family about it. Honestly it’s the rare app you could gift someone and they’d be thrilled. Really deserves 6 stars out of 5.

In future updates, I’d love to see another translation included, and another female voice. (Currently 1 of 4). An easier way to listen to just the music would be helpful as well.

Developer Response

Thank you so much for the kind and encouraging words! It's a gift. I wanted you to know that you can stream all of the Dwell music from Apple Music or Spotify. I hope you enjoy it! We'll be creating more as we go!

Every blessing,

I like it a lot

I used to use you version bible app, I stopped because it became more about socializing then reading Gods word. I use currently bible gateway and its ok. I really like Dwell a lot. I can listen and not get bored or distracted while listening.
The readers voice grabs my attention along with the music.
I do read my physical bible in the morning, now reading has risen to a whole new level with listening and reading along at the same time. I will highly recommend this app, as it is better than other apps I have tried that are not mentioned here. I also love that I can set the background music to random or a specific sound or instruments.
This is a wonderful app! Thank you Josh and Jon for developing this app. Gods hand was and is definitely in and on this app. May God continue to bless both of you and everyone who helped with this app.
