5 Billion Minutes

When huge things happen in the YouVersion user community, we love sharing them so we can celebrate together. And today, we’re thrilled to announce that collectively, users of the Bible App™ have blown past yet another massive milestone:


You’ve read the Bible for more than 5 billion total minutes!

It was a little over a year ago that we announced that the total number of minutes read using the Bible App™ had crossed one billion. Just seven months later, we announced that number had doubled, as we passed two billion minutes together. Then, in our 2010 Year in Review, after only six more months, we told you that even that number had doubled, with more than 4 billion total minutes read.

We’re convinced that when people spend time reading God’s Word, lives are changed. His small still voice speaks through it, giving us His wisdom and insight. We are privileged to share with you in the work that God is doing. Thank you for engaging with Scripture through the Bible App by YouVersion.

  1. Jeremiah 29:13
    And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

    Thank you for sharing God’s Word in “mobile” form. I find that the more I stay in the Word, the more my life is changing and evolving, the more the Spirit lives in me and takes me over, and the more I want to share my love of the Lord with everybody in my life.

  2. Thanks and congratulations. having this app on my phone means I’m now reading my bible everyday. It’s definitely the best bible app on the market at the moment.

    if you have an html button badge I’d be happy to promote on my book review site

  3. You all at YouVersion are doing an excellent job, I have fallen so in love with God’s Word on my iPhone Bible app, I use it everyday and share my verses and thoughts with my family and friends daily. It has all been made so easy and possible through your app. Thank you so much for creating it. It truly is my favorite app on my phone. You have helped make God’s word more accessible to me and fun to read. I love the reading plans too. May God bless you all!

  4. Hi, I just downloaded the app and have been trying all of the features. For once an app that really works and is easy to use and offers many versions. Scriptures are super fast to find and it really works fast. Many of us have times of the day in which we are just waiting somewhere and being able to read more in the Bible is a much better use of time than picking up whatever they have laying around to read!

    Thanks for a great app.
