[ARCHIVED POST FROM 2011]
You will once again be able to download the NIV and the NLT for offline use
Starting 12:00 AM Sunday, October 30 Central Time U.S. (GMT -5)
Ending 11:59 PM Monday, October 31 Central Time U.S. (GMT -5)
Some Bible App users who have downloaded the NIV and NLT during special events in the past have let us know that they lost these versions while upgrading or replacing their phones. We reached out to Biblica and Zondervan, publishers of the New International Version (NIV), and to Tyndale, publisher of the New Living Translation (NLT), to see if there was anything we could do to help these users get their versions back. They graciously agreed to allow us to make their versions available for download again, but only during this 48-hour window. Don’t miss your chance starting this weekend!
Other Bible publishers also generously offer their versions for free to the YouVersion community for download—all the time. Check the list of available versions on your device right now to see which ones you want to download!
Note: When you look at the available versions on your device, remember to tap the “Refresh” button, to ensure that the list you’re seeing is the most current.
Downloading offline versions:
What does offline mean? Many versions in the Bible App™ are available to download to your mobile device. When you download a version, you can read it literally anytime, anyplace, even when you can’t connect to your service provider or to the Internet.
Below are links to detailed instructions on how you can download your free copy, once these two versions become available again on Sunday, October 30. Mark your calendar, and be sure you don’t miss this opportunity!
