Linking to YouVersion Now Made Easy!

YouVersion Link Tool

This new tool allows you to link to specific verses in YouVersion via a shortened url, useful for twitter posts, emails, and blog posts.  It also gives you the ability to link to specific verses on the m.youversion.com site. Below is an example of the url’s generated from a search for Matt 5:12:

Just type in the verse, select the translation, and hit the go button.  Underneath the search bar you are given the web url, the mobile url, and the verse itself. The new link tool can be found on the footer of YouVersion.com and can also be accessed at http://www.youversion.com/linktool

iPhone Bible App Version 1.6!!

Stop what you are doing, check out the App Store on your iPhone, and download version 1.6!!  We are very excited about this update as it offers you the ability to bookmark your favorite verses, which has been one of the most requested features on our feedback page.  We also have improved the translations page giving it a new look with alphabetical scrolling and nifty sidebar shortcut (much like the contact scrolling on the iPhone).

We have also fixed some minor bugs and are continuing to add languages and translations for your specific taste!  Enjoy version 1.6 and keep us in the loop on any requests, bug reports and comments on our feedback page!

iPhone Bible App version 1.5

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.

We want you feedback, any suggestions, bugs, or ideas can go here.  Enjoy!
