** FINALLY Read the Entire Bible **
Touch Bible will help you read the entire bible in less than a year. The reading plan and audio Bible means you can read or listen to the Bible.
** Strong's Concordance **
Touch Bible helps you comprehend tough words. Those difficult words are finally given clarity with only a tap. What is the Strong's Concordance? The words in the Bible are numbered. Those numbers (Strong numbers) are tied to definitions (lexicons) from the original languages of the Bible. Sounds technical? Touch Bible makes this so easy:
1. While you read the bible you'll see that most words are buttons.
2. Tap on a word and you'll get so much information about the word. If you need to look up a word simply search for it (or it's number) and tap the link in the Bible reader.
What resources are included in the Concordance?
- Instant definitions include information from combined resources:
+ "Strong's Lexicons" (Greek and Hebrew)
+ "Brown, Driver, Briggs Lexicon" (BDB)
+ "Theological Word Book of the O.T."
+ "Thayer's and Smith's Bible Dictionary"

Ratings and Reviews
Great App but...
The only thing I wish was added to this is red letter for Jesus words.
When Strong's Concordance was a big, fat, heavy book weighing in at a hefty 8-10 pounds, it was an amazing body of work that could help you decode the meaning of the words in the bible without knowing greek or hebrew--Strongs did that all for you by annotating each and every word of the bible with the cross-referenced meanings. It was great but really a hassle to use because you had to flip through all the pages. But with this gem, it's all in the palm of your hand. The *entire* Strongs concordance is in this app. Amazing.
The program is really easy to use and comes along with the entire King James bible since the original editions of Strongs was based upon the KJV.
This is worth at least 20 times the cost of the mere $.99 you are paying for this app. The interface of this app is great and all you have to do is touch on the word you want to research and *zap* the original meaning in greek or hebrew screens up. It also gives you the original cross-reference number in case you actually *want* to look it up in your original book version.
No more page flipping to research through Strongs with this app. lol.
Copying sections to notes
Just recently updated the app and now the number of the verses are not all to the left side of the page, but are now staggered making it way too difficult to copy & paste to notes section for my thoughts on a verse/section. Not sure I like the paleness of the highlighted concordance words....not enough contrast for ease of use. I paid for this app specifically for the concordance and whether the contrast is changed through settings or not misses the point, as the previous version was more intuitive, at least for what I used it for. I do like the layout of the concordance...it seems more graphic and has more immediate examples of words in context.
