The New Living Translation was founded on the most recent scholarship in the theory of translation, with the goal of communicating the meaning of the ancient Bible texts as accurately as possible to the modern reader.

It seeks to preserve the freshness and readability of the original paraphrase while providing the accuracy and reliability of a translation prepared by a team of 90 biblical scholars.

Quality of Translation:

The translators took on the challenge of producing a text that would have the same impact in the life of today's readers as the original text had for the original readers. The method employed to reach this goal in the New Living Translation, was to translate entire thoughts (instead of just words) into natural, everyday English. Therefore the NLT is a thought for thought, rather than word for word (literal) translation. As a result, it is easy to read and understand, while correctly conveying the original meaning of text.

For a mostly audio person, I love it! Sometimes the dramatized music is a little to much...but if u hang in there it subsides after a few minutes. I do wish the trash can wasn't there on the audio screen. I'm afraid I'll erase the audio files some time. I wish I could figure out how to make it scroll to read while listening, but otherwise very nice... Actually the best bible app I have... and I use a very nice Strongs NIV/KJV app (by Mantis), the ESV Study(includes on line Global Study Bible), and an NIV dramatised app, ALL of which are great, but I use/like yours the most. THANK YOU and the One who works in you! (Oh, you might change the weird pink color on the app logo.) I also wish the audio would sync with the text, so if you touch a verse the audio would read there. Thank you so much! Very good app! Pauli Joe.

Great App!

This app is so convenient. It allows me to listen while getting other things done but if I want to be still and read along while listening I can do that too. The reason for four stars is because sometimes when my phone's screen locks out the app stops. It didn't used to do that before. I now need to unlock the phone for it to continue. When the phone licks. I can still see the apps play and other buttons but when I press them nothing happens.

NLT Aidio Bible

The free app is clunky and cumbersome with ads between every chapter. I paid $5.99 and now love the app, except every time I open it, I'm asked to suggest ways to improve the app. It's a lot, and it's annoying. I recommend providing a button to click if a user wants to give feedback, and stop blocking access until a user responds every time s/he logs in.
