Tech. Tuesday — The Bible and the Iphone

Good afternoon readers! Sorry about the late post, but it is Tech. Tuesday! Today we are going to look at the Bible and the Iphone. Ever since the Iphone came out, it has been considered the best  “smartphone” technology, and continues to be the best according to consumers. Several thousand applications have been developed to be used on the phone and itouch devices.

One of the most important applications I have on my phone is the Bible. Several different applications have been made for the Bible, but I use the application created by the folks over at YouVersion.com.

It gives you the capability to view many translations, see what others think about a verse, read a Bible plan, etc.; all from your phone screen. How cool is that?

So readers, do you think that the Bible applications are a necessity for a “smartphone” user? If you do, what application do you have? If not, why not?

Until next time readers, God Bless!

  1. There’s obviously a lot of value in having a physical copy I think, but it’s interesting to see something so old being supplemented by technology. Just think of how much easier it would be with an iPad..

  2. I’ve used YouVersion before but their app crashes a lot.

    Nowadays I use BibleScope (http://www.biblescopeapp.com/). It’s not free, but I really like its UI, especially the split screen feature, the ease of going to a different passage and a specific verse. You have to try it out for some time to realize how nice it is.

    Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with any of these apps.

  3. Glad to see someone else using their iPhone for Bible study. Contrary to what some might think, mobile devices are ideal platforms for the Bible. We have them with us all the time, and they make it quick and easy not only to look up a Bible verse, but to carry an entire library with you in your pocket. For example, I’m able to carry a 20-volume New Testament commentary series from IVP with me wherever I go and access it even when I don’t have a good 3G signal nor WiFi because it’s installed right on the phone.

    Of course I use PocketBible (http://www.linktoapp.com/pocketbible+free) since I helped write it. 🙂 But to answer your question, the other apps I find indispensable on my iPhone are RunKeeper (http://www.runkeeper.com) to track my jogging sessions, NJ Backgammon (http://www.njsoftware.com), and our own PrayerPartner (http://www.linktoapp.com/prayerpartner) to keep track of prayer requests.
