iPhone Bible Update 2.0 Submitted to iTunes Store

An update of the Bible app is on the way! Version 2.0 of the YouVersion iPhone Bible app (Bible) is waiting patiently in line for approval at the iTunes Store. Last week we pushed out an update that included new YouVersion Live functionality and some Twitter features that we’re pretty excited about. The last update was also supposed to include the ability to view The Message as an offline translation. But a couple wires got crossed somewhere in that process that prevented The Message from showing up offline and also caused different translations to disappear offline for some users.

We apologize for the bugs that kept some of you from having access to your translation of choice. This update solves all of those issues, and refines the Bible app and some of the new features launched last week. Specifically here is what this update, version 2.0, includes:

  • The Bible translation “The Message” is available as an offline download.
  • A fix for the bug that caused certain translations to disappear when the Bible app was restarted or rebooted.
  • Several improvements to YouVersion Live Events and detail pages.
  • The addition of a webkit/browser into Bible app, so when clicking on links from within YouVersion Live, it doesn’t require leaving out to Safari.
  • Completion of API implementation across the entire Bible app.
  • Several speed and performance improvements.

In the midst of all the YouVersion Live launch excitement, we also had the pleasure of  connecting with many of you last week during Catalyst and asking you the question, “What do you love about YouVersion?” Go to the YouVersion Facebook Page to see what people had to say and to share your answer!

Introducing YouVersion Live

We’re thrilled to introduce a brand new concept for YouVersion.com. It’s called “YouVersion Live” and it brings a new level of interaction to the communication of God’s truth and love.

YouVersion Live is a free service that will give pastors, conference speakers, teachers, and group leaders the ability to share content and real-time feedback on mobile devices during live events, services, and more. Here’s an idea of how a church leader could use YouVersion Live…

A pastor would love to be able to get his congregation more involved in his message, ask questions and get answers, survey the room with a simple poll, give them an easy and natural way to take notes on his talking points, and maybe even give them a follow-up thought with a blog post or YouTube video as they’re leaving. And, in a perfect world, they’d be able to keep all that information in a place they look every day so they can refresh themselves on what he spoke about.

When YouVersion Live launches, this pastor will be able to do all this (and a little more) by simply dragging and dropping in a super-simple dashboard on YouVersion.com. During a service, his congregation will pull out their web-enabled phones, open up YouVersion (either on the mobile website or a native application), read the Bible, take notes, ask questions, submit prayer requests, answer polls, find links to external content (event details, blog posts, videos, etc), and give online. Before they leave, they’ll be able to send all that great content to themselves (or a friend) via email for future reference.

With YouVersion Live, a pastor can offer his congregation a rich and engaging way to experience the Bible and his message. Plus, with millions of people already using YouVersion on their phones, he’s got a head start towards telling his congregation about this new tool.

We’ll be talking more about YouVersion Live over the next several weeks, so stay tuned for more information and announcements!

Version 1.5 has been pushed to the iTunes App Store! Go get your FREE update Today!

Version 1.5 has some small tweaks including improved searching, more translations, and some refinement on the appearance.  We also fixed a few offline bugs, specifically the ‘tunnel affect’ which happens when someone is on an online translation and goes through a patch of no-connectivity (tunnel).  Before this crashed the app, now it will give you an option to pick a offline translation.  This along with some other fixes should make your iPhone Bible reading experience much smoother.
