Favorite Bible App

I’m sure everyone already know about this but, I wanted to throw it out there. The Blue Letter Bible app is amazing.

It is free, and has highlight, and memory verse functions. However my absolute FAVORITE thing about it is the fact you can click a work on it and get the original Greek translation. This has helped me hundreds of times in my study. Especially if I’m struggling with a verse or word. You can go back and see what the original Greek says about it.

For example: I just searched lasciviousness and got the definition: unbridled lust, excess, licentiousness, lasciviousness, wantonness, outrageousness, shamelessness, insolence.

Lastly it gives you a whole search function for the Bible. If you only remember 1 or 2 words in a verse you type them in and it’ll take you to ever verse with that in there.

If any of you have a better app please share!

  1. I use the YouVersion Bible app. I’ve just been using it for years, I like all of the translations and Spanish translations. It does what I need and I always liked to use the Parallel feature on tablet.

  2. Completely agreed.

    Most importantly, however, is that BLB is well-optimized. I’ve tried dozens of Christian and bible related apps, and with the sole exception of BLB and BibleGateway, they are mostly an unoptimized and technical mess that should’ve never left the beta stage of development (and in some cases, the alpha stage).

  3. I’m of the opinion, as with Bible translations themselves, that there are no one-size-fits-all situations and the use of various tools is necessary for full, deep study.

  4. That sounds like a cool feature for an app. The YouVersion app seems to have been getting better through the years. A few years ago I go into the Logos app. I can’t go to any other app after using Logos. The search tools, organization, screen layouts, and study resources are difficult to beat. It’s not free but I feel it’s definitely well worth the money.

  5. I use mysword on android and e-sword on PC. Has similar features and you can download just about any translation you want, including the KJV with the strongs numbers. Also has easy way to compare different translations.

  6. I use PocketBible. For me, it has the most features. It is expensive though. The app is free and you can use KJV, but for any of the versions you really want, Greek/Hebrew translations, etc. you have to buy each book. But it’s been totally worth it. Notes and highlights sync across devices. Easy search and Strong’s numbers. Split screen for comparing different passages or different versions. None of the other apps I’ve tried even come close.

  7. I like the olive tree app myself. It can be used offline so I Rock it on my iPad at church sometimes and when I get back in WiFi later it syncs up all my highlights and notes to the iPhone.
