1. When you highlight verses, you must have the option to make it public or private. It is irritating if every verse you highlight is shown on the home page, where your friends can see it. Too much information. You must be able to share only selectively.
2. When you make a note it does give the option, private or not, at the moment you make the note. The problem is, after you chose private, you might want to share it later on with friends, but then you can’t.
3. When I make a note I can add verses, but only one language verses, I cannot add Afrikaans and English verses in the same note. I have to make another note and add the second language verses there, which is tiresome and duplication.
4. Can you add a sorting function in notes?

Bible app


Bible is a very useful app and I find it spiritually nourishing and bringing one closer to God Almighty. I can't go a day without it. If one version is not clear on any subject, other versions are available to help explore the subject. I also like the Bible study plans that this app keeps showing so that one may choose according to the situation in your life. For example, marriage-related, prayer-warrior-related, anxiety-related, forgiveness-related, etc. What a marvelous app indeed! I LOVE IT BIG TIME. Thank you. - Benny Letseleha

I can easily highlight the scriptures that speak to me directly or that stand out at the time of reading or studying the Bible. Availability of the multiple Bible versions in one make Bible reading and understanding very easy and convenient. - Benny Letseleha

You version


Best Bible app yet! So many options!! So many plans and languages to choose from!!! The plans are relevant, short and sweet and practical! You can also study a plan together with friends wherever you are!
The Bible translations are numerous and if you would like to listen to the Word there are quite a few audio options.
You can highlight any scripture, even turn it into an image very easily or bookmark it. You want to share on Facebook or Instagram or via email? Easy- just a click of a button. Also so easy to compare a scripture in all translations.
See what you friends are reading and connect with your them. You will LOVE this app- and the best part? It is all for FREE!!!
