What’s the best app for new devices?
Everyone loves getting a shiny new device during the holidays. They help us stay connected, explore our interests, take pictures and video, even pay for things. As you’re installing all your must-have apps (and helping relatives with theirs), don’t forget the apps that can actually help you and your family draw closer to God every day.
Considering an end of year gift?
You can be a part of helping us connect people with God every day, all over the world. Join us in this global movement of God.
“I want to draw closer to God, but…”
Some days, it can feel like all of life’s demands are conspiring together to consume you. But, seeking God in His Word has the power to bring positive change into your life. How do you find that daily rhythm? By setting small, achievable goals… and taking them on one by one.
Did a particular Bible verse really speak to your heart? Highlight it, and you’ll unlock the Highlight Badge. Keep highlighting, and you’ll “level up” each time you reach the next milestone. Try the same thing with Bookmarks, and unlock and level up your Bookmark Badge!
Complete one of our annual challenges (like the Christmas Challenge), and you’ll earn a Badge. Subscribe to a Bible Plan, and you’ll unlock the Plan Subscription Badge. Finish that Plan, and you’ll unlock the Plan Completion Badge. Keep starting and finishing Plans, and you’ll level up both.
Your home feed shows your progress on Badges. Go to your profile to see all the Badges you’ve unlocked so far… and which other Badges are available. Once you’ve encouraged yourself with some of the smaller Badges, maybe you’ll feel inspired to chase the Whole Bible Badge.
And inspire others.
Your friends will see your Badges in their feeds, or you can share your journey and invite them to join you, on social media or by text. And, when you see your friends’ Badge progress in your feed, you can like or comment to encourage them.
Now let’s get you started:
Today, together with our partner OneHope, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Bible App for Kids in Estonian. Now, more children than ever have the opportunity to enjoy a Bible experience all their own.
Switching between languages is easy, right in the app’s Settings:
- Make sure you’ve updated your app to the most current release.
- Open the app and tap the gear icon () to open Settings.
Tap Language and select the one you want.
The audio will now play in that language, and any text will appear in that language, too!
Please help us celebrate this great news!

Multitasking. Now you can have the Bible App open at the same time as other apps, all accessible on the same screen.
Better Video Experience. Video content in Plan devotionals now expands to a much larger size, taking advantage of your iPad’s big screen.
Split-View. As you navigate through menus and tabs, the Bible App keeps you on the same screen, even as it cascades from one tap into the next.
Parallel Reading. This classic Bible App for iPad feature is now better than ever. Compare Bible versions side by side, and they stay synced as you scroll. We also improved navigation in Parallel mode, making it cleaner, smoother, and easier to use.
Bonus: Try out these same Parallel Reading features in landscape mode on your iPhone!
Simpler Navigation. The menus and controls in Bible App for iPad now better match the experience you’re used to from your iPhone.
Sometimes when you read or listen to certain Bible verses, it leads you to questions: What does this mean? Who wrote this, and why? How can I apply this to my life?
Our all-new Discover feature can help!
Just tap the new Discover icon anytime you see it in the Bible Reader (), and you’ll see additional content that helps you experience God’s Word in different ways. Discover launches today, with videos from our partners at The Bible Project, LUMO, and Jesus Film Project… and more related content is on the way!
Try Discover today, and make your time in God’s Word even richer.
God has breathed life into all of Scripture. It is useful for teaching us what is true… making our lives whole again… [and] useful for training us to do what is right.
