Best free Bible software I've used
I have been using e-Sword for years, starting with the desktop program. I appreciate the availability of multiple Bible translations and a wide range of supplemental resources all in one platform. These resources are especially easy to access on the mobile version. I was thrilled to discover that the German language Bibles came with a German dictionary, not just an English-German translation dictionary. Switching between translations, dictionaries, and other reference materials is seamless, and the hyperlinking works well. In a future version, I would love to see the Strong's concordance list or link to other occurrences of the same word (rather than just note how many such occurrences there are).
eSword is a very good app
I have used eSword for years now, but a first time for me on a smart phone. I am still impressed!
It is highly functional. There are so many resources available to eSword. You can choose from many Bible translations and languages. Being able to compare translations side by side is a great feature. The dictionaries, concordances and commentaries are easy to find and use, and the devotionals are there for those of us who find it a challenge to make, find or steal time to read Scripture.
So eSword is powerful, and easy to use with a wide range of resources. Finally, it is also beautiful. It was the first app I went to download when I went to the dark side and bought an iPhone.
The Best !
I've used E-sword for sometime on my desk top in preparation for my Bible Study Class and have always been satisfied ! Now that I've used LT on my iPhone for a while I'm extremely pleased. I've been "Reading the Bible Thru in a Year" on my phone for several years now and had been using a popular Bible App. I have now switched to E-sword LT. Plus I use it in church along side my Bible to search and check other versions and commentaries or look up a definition. It's much faster with more options and the customer service is exceptional ! I thank the Lord for Rick Meyers using his gift to develop this tool for The Glory of Christ's Name !
