World English Bible translation - The entire Old Testament in audio form read by a real person with no drama or background music. All the audio is embedded so you can listen at any time, without the need for a wireless connection.

The audio is the recording of a real person reading carefully and slowly in an American accent without dramatic effect or background music which many find distracting. If you find it too fast or slow for your preference, you can adjust the playback speed while still maintaining the natural voice sound.You can hear a sample by going to this URL in your browser:

The program remembers the audio position so you can start listening where you last left off. The audio will keep playing even after the screen is locked so you can save battery power while continuing to listen.

The program is simple to use, touch the book icon to select the Book/Chapter to start at, and you can fast forward, rewind, pause, and skip forward and back chapters.

You can now purchase an upgrade via an In-App Purchase option the following optional features:
-Read along scripture text in synch with the audio
-Navigate by verse in addition to chapter
-Sleep timer
-Repeat playback between selected books/chapters/verses

I have been using this app for about a year. I really like the fact that you can select passages of Scripture, and put them on a loop. By that I mean it has a feature that allows you to repeat the scripture over and over again. This is particularly helpful for my Bible study because I'd like to listen to the Bible while I sleep. I have several audio versions, and sometime I will just start at songs and just let the app run. Other times I want to focus in on a particular passage. That's when this app comes in. For example, on a particular night I may take a passage like Luke 4:18 and listen to it over and over again. It helps break through to my spirit and helps me internalize that passage of scripture more fully. As has been said it would be nice to have additional versions. But it's also been said I appreciate the tremendous amount of work that went into this apps creation. Thank you!

Pretty great App

I've been using this App for about 6 months now and have no complaints about it. It's awesome to be able to listen to the Psalms and Proverbs at work with or without WIFI and driving down the road. Id like other translations to be available, but I respect the amount of work and time put into all the recordings made!

I thank GOD for you!

I have used the audio word of GOD for years back in the days of cassettes. ;-)
I had a player that could increase the speed. I have missed that feature. Thank you for including it. I HAVE MISSED IT!
Also thank you for using the American Standard Bible. That is a GREAT translation. My GOD bless your labor and your family.
