Your relationship with God is a personal one. That’s why finding an app that lets you worship the way you want to (and the way that makes the most sense for your lifestyle) is so important.

In an effort to make this process easier for everyone, we took a hard-core look at what the best Bible apps on the market currently are (see the AppGrooves link below if you want to look into that for yourself) as well as what things you might want to keep in mind when choosing the right app for you.

Best 10 Bible Apps

We’ve come up with three tips to help you out, and those we’ve listed below for your convenience!

Multiple Bible Versions

The Bible in its original form can be hard to understand due to the fact that the English language has changed over time, so some translations don’t exactly… well, translate. That said, you may find that you prefer one Bible version over another.

If you want to read a Bible that closely interprets the original the Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew texts, you may want to search for an app that includes Bible versions like the Tyndale Bible and the King James Bible.

However, if you prefer to a Bible that’s easier to understand, you’ll want to select an updated version that uses modern English vocabulary. If this happens to be the case for you, you’ll want an app that includes updated versions of the Bible such as the New International Version (NIV) or the New Living Translation (NLT).

Bible History

If you want to learn a bit about the history of the Bible in order to have more in-depth information about what you’re studying, you may prefer an app that includes extra features like timelines and diagrams. You can then use these to help you visualize the relationship between historical figures, events, and geographical places.

Bible references can also be difficult to understand if you don’t know the material very well. To better learn these historical Bible references, you’ll want to find an app that includes definitions of old English vocabulary and Bible verse explanations. This way, you can easily grasp the full meaning behind some of the more complicated scriptures.

If you’ve never studied the Bible before, you may prefer an app with information on how the Bible scriptures were found and compiled. Bible apps like YouBible, Bible Maps and Bible Timeline include information on how the Bible was written, where events took place, and more. You can also download PDF texts, so you can study the history of the bible anywhere you go.

Enhancement Tools

For those of you who want to really enhance your Biblical studies, a Bible app with study features like dictionaries, passage guides, as well as reading plans will be your best bet. With these tools, you will have all the tools you need to learn the Bible and understand the Word of God.

Want to read the Bible but don’t know where to start? Search for an app that has multiple reading plans you can use to walk through the Old and New Testaments. Whether your goal is to read the Bible in a few months or you want to take your time, you can pick a reading plan that matches your speed as you progress through the Bible and your studies.

On the other hand, if you want to understand how Bible teachings can be applied to your daily life, an app with specialized Bible versions (like those created for men, women, teens, and more) is a good option. For example, the NIV Women’s Devotional Bible offers valuable insights and perspectives to women so all females can learn the Bible on a more personal level.

Conclusion

Bible apps are great because they allow you to conveniently take your worship with you anywhere you happen to be. We hope this helps guide you in picking out a Bible app that fits your needs. We’ve experienced a lot of success by keeping these tips in mind, and we firmly believe the same will happen for you as well!
