Is YouVersion the best online Bible?
Need quick access to a Bible? I've been googling, binging and yahooing for the best online Bible to help you and your users get equipped wherever they are.
After much looking around I've found YouVersion to be the best. It is clean, fresh and simple. When you go to the website you are taken straight to Genesis 1:1 – which is useful for me (every few weeks I try to read the Bible from start to finish, get up to Noah, and then start another type of plan…).
YouVersion can be read online, but there is also an incredible mobile app for the major mobile phone players and also an iPad app for tablet owners (I’ve not yet convinced my wife that a bigger version of the iPhone is a necessity so the mobile apps will have to do).
Features available to everyone include bookmarking scripture, grabbing links and daily readings.
If you become a member there are more exciting features, for example you can have your own reading plans that have been submitted for everyone to use. This can be synced to your mobile as well. There are many versions to choose from and you can configure the page to make it easier to read.
I recommend YouVersion as a great way to access scripture. Have you tried it? Like it? Let us know on Twitter or Facebook what your favourite Bible website or app is.
