The Next iPhone Update Is Available

The next version (v 2.7.1) of the Bible App™ for iPhone and iPad is ready and waiting for you in the iTunes App Store right now. You can check the App Store on your device, or you can download it here through your browser. For this release, we’ve added a few features and tweaked several others. Here are just a few of the things you might notice:

  • We’ve improved the native language interface versions for Spanish, German and Chinese.
  • You can now “Copy” a verse, even if you’re offline (disconnected from the Internet or your service provider).
  • Now, when you visit Bible chapters directly, they’ll be included in your History.
  • And because we’re always working on improving the Bible App, we’ve included the ubiquitous “stability enhancements and bug fixes” which means the app will run faster and crash less.

Do you love the Bible App on your Apple device? Do you know friends who haven’t tried it? (Especially friends whose native language isn’t English?) Would you consider sharing it with them? We’d be thrilled if you’d show them how easy it is to get and update—and maybe even demonstrate a couple of your favorite features for them. And as always, we love hearing from you on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. It would be great to be able to copy a string of verses. Often this is needed to complete the thought.


    1. I was just about to post this too. I have wanted to “share” a passage to FaceBook but you can’t select more than one verse.

      1. Especially when writing a note. I’ve been using YouVersion on the iPad to create notes for sermons at church. And when the pastor references a long passage, it takes awhile to add every verse. And if you accidentally hit a verse instead of “add a verse” then it jumps to that verse and you lose anything (reference selection or typed notes) since you last saved. Have lost things enough times to know to just save every few minutes no matter what.

  2. Bookmarking verses is nice, but I’d love to be able to “highlight” verses so that, when I return to specific passages of Scripture, my eyes are drawn to key verses I’d marked previously.

  3. I love these apps on my Iphone but i just downloaded from the iTunes store and it crashes everytime.

  4. iBooks has an awesome feature that would be easy to impliment and your customers would find it enjoyable. In ‘settings’, you can opt for a ‘Sepia’ background. This is a tan background that looks much like a real book page – no glaring white background for daytime reading. Thank you for not only a great application but your willingness to not sit on your layrels, but be striving to improve work work product. Thanks again.

  5. I agree – with it all! Bookmarking a passage would be very good, and it would be AWESOME to highlight verses!

  6. the next time you make a change it would be nice if you could see the actual passage on the top of a page when reading your daily portion from the One Year Bibl. For example today it said to reaad Exodus 15:1-18. At the top of the page on that reading it says Exodus 15. Unless you go back to the opening page to verify, you will read beyond the portion to keep up to date. I know it sounds like a little thing, but it would really be helpful if it said the actual chapter and verses at the top of each page.

    I love this program to do my daily Bible reading and appreciate so much your efforts to make it happen. Keep up the good work

  7. Please – we need the copy of more than one verse option back. I use to copy either selected line or more than one verse and now with this new update I can’t. Really need this feature – please.
