We recently launched YouVersion Prayer, designed to help us have honest conversations with God, in a time when we are all searching for answers.

Or maybe you just don’t know where to start…

Verse of the Day Stories is currently rolling out gradually. Keep your Bible App updated to see Stories when it arrives.
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.

We hope you’ve already been hearing about Bible Lens, the newest free app from your friends at YouVersion, makers of the Bible App and Bible App for Kids. Bible Lens allows you to automatically and artistically see God’s Word in every picture you take.
What is Bible Lens?
Snap a picture with Bible Lens, and it identifies objects, expressions, and more…
…searches the Bible for verses to match, then overlays one as beautiful, high-quality art.
If you want, Bible Lens can even find verses for photos you already have, whether you took them 5 days ago, or 5 years ago.
Verse Images let you capture your moments of inspiration as beautiful Bible art: to save, to remember, to reflect, and to share… all from inside the Bible App. And today, Verse Images are better than ever, with new background images, new fonts, new aspect ratios, and more!
