New Living Translation (NLT) Now Available Offline…Free!

For many translations that we offer, YouVersion’s Bible app requires you to be connected to the Internet or to your service provider. But the list of free Bible versions we have available offline keeps growing. Today, we’re happy to announce the addition of the New Living Translation (NLT), available free for download for Bible App users on iPhone, iPad and Android. But don’t wait: This offer is only available until January 31, 2011!

Downloading the NLT will give you constant access to it, even when you can’t get on your network. The last time the NLT was available offline, thousands of people downloaded it. Now that opportunity is back, and we hope the same thing happens again. We’d love for even more of you to have the NLT directly on your device, so you can engage with your Bible anytime, anywhere. You can learn more about the NLT on their website.

How to get it:
For iPhone or iPad: If you’re using the Bible app for iPhone, first go to the App Store and check Updates [link], and make sure you have the most current version. Then:

  1. Tap on Read, then the blue arrow to view available translations
  2. Scroll to the one you want and tap the green download button

That’s it! From that point on, when you view your translation list, your downloaded versions display with a unique gray arrow icon.

For Android: We recently added offline support to Android and you can read about it here. Downloading the NLT works the same as downloading any other Bible version.

We’re grateful to Tyndale House to be able to offer you this additional version for download for a limited time. Be sure you take advantage of this great opportunity to connect with God’s word!
