Interactive tool for studying this popular version of The Bible
Windows 8.1 / Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
Read Bible verses anywhere, highlighting those that are special and saving passages to read at a later time.
If you don't like carrying your Bible with you or if you don't like reading books in general, then this is an app that you might enjoy. You can read the Bible from start to finish, when you're looking for a specific reference or if you need encouragement. There is a search feature that allows you to enter a word or a phrase to find a specific verse or verses that are about what you want to find. The entire Bible will be with you anywhere you go so that you can look up verses when you're trying to offer encouragement to someone or if you're in church and want to follow along with the teachings of that day.
Menus offer ways to browse through the books of the Bible. Once you find a book that you want to read, you can scroll through the verses as well. When you click on the verse, it's displayed on the right side of the screen. The app makes the verses look like they would on a piece of paper. You can highlight verses and save them to come back to if you don't finish reading them at one time. The visual appearance of the app is plain. There aren't any bright colors, and there really aren't a lot of details aside from the menus that allow you to scroll through the books. Sound effects aren't great. You have sounds of clicking on verses to read and of pages turning, but there isn't any music. One of the disadvantages of the app is that it's only in one language, which might be a deterrent to those who need to read it in other languages.
