The Bible App for Android Now Has Highlights, Better Bookmarks

We’re happy to share some exciting news today with the more than 5 million of you who connect with God’s Word using the Bible App™ for Android. Version 3.2 brings one of the most requested features: Highlights! Now, for the first time ever in the Bible App, you can select individual verses, or even entire passages, and highlight them with different colors. Use them just as you would with marker highlights in your paper Bible.

Highlighting a verse is simple. When you select a verse or multiple verses, tap the arrow icon in the bottom right corner and then choose a color. (Hint: You can even create your own custom color using the color wheel.)

But that’s not all—bookmarks are better too. Now you can give bookmarks a title and/or label to keep them better organized. Simply select a verse or passage, tap the arrow icon in the bottom right corner of the reader, and select “Bookmark” from the popup menu. Then give the bookmark a title, label, and you even have the option to highlight the verse while you’re creating the bookmark.

This newest release of the Bible App for Android is available now in the Android App Market. (And for those of us who are using iPhone/iPad or BlackBerry mobile devices, we can look forward to these features on our platform soon!) Don’t forget to comment and rate the app in the Android Market. It helps increase visibility so more people can find and engage with Scripture through the Bible App.
