People who speak Spanish have a great new option for reading the Bible online and on the go. The Nueva Version Internacional is the latest addition to the growing list of translations on YouVersion. As the number of Hispanic YouVersion users continues to increase, we’re especially excited about launching the NVI.
YouVersion features Bible translations in 41 different versions and 21 languages, and now BlackBerry users around the world can enjoy new language options for the app itself. We’re extending the global reach for the Bible App to Portuguese, Spanish, German, and French, in addition to English. These languages are localized into the app, which means all the buttons, menus, and settings will be in the language you choose.
You can have access to these languages, as well as some important bug fixes and improved stability, by updating to version 2.04 inside the Bible app or by going to http://youversion.com/bb.
More than 990 million people worldwide are speaking these five languages, and we’re excited to see what God does as BlackBerry users in these areas have increased access to the Bible.
Today is the highly expected launch of the Verizon Droid. It is the first device with Android 2.0 (Google’s mobile operating system), has a flip out Keyboard and has even been compared to Apple’s iPhone device by several bloggers (TechCrunch, Mashable, cnet).
Well as the new Droid launches we would also like to let everyone know that YouVersion Bible app is now available for mobile phones running Android! Just go to http://youversion.com/download and you will be directed from your Android phone to the free Bible app powered by YouVersion.
For those of you already using an Android device, or looking at making the change to Verizon’s Droid, what gets you most excited about the platform? Let us know over at http://facebook.com/youversion!
(The Bible for Android works on all Android devices such as the Hero from Sprint, the T-Mobile myTouch and CLIQ)
