VerseWise Bible® (Douay-Rheims) is the Catholic Bible (with deuterocanon and notes) at your fingertips. It is optimized for easy, convenient reading.

Douay-Rheims is an English translation of the Latin Vulgate. It was the Bible of the majority of English-speaking Catholics well into the 20th century and is still popular among those favoring a more traditional translation.

VerseWise Bible DR includes the 73 books of the Roman Catholic canon. It uses the original introductions to each book and footnotes.

NOTE: The names of the books and the chapter numbering in Psalms follow the Vulgate and thus sometimes differ from more modern translations.

Many useful features!

I have several other bible apps and I always end up studying this version due to its features. I am able to choose a black background with white font which is easier on my eyes, different font sizes, highlighting and/ or bookmarking passages (in addition to viewing them in one list), emailing passages, and most importantly, excellent footnotes that enable me to understand the word of God! I am now able to read the bible regularly and remain interested. Easy to use on the iPhone as well as the iPad.

Awesome Catholic Bible Application

An incredible Catholic Bible application that won’t break the bank. I am enormously happy with this application and recommend it to everyone searching for a Catholic Bible. I no longer need to carry my heavy bible everywhere I go, I have it in the palm of my hand.

As an added benefit, VerseWise gives great customer support. Prior to purchase, I contacted VerseWise and they were extremely helpful in answering my questions. Thanks Bruce!
