Faithlife Study Bible (Free until Apr 8th, 2013)

Here is an exciting new kid on the block in the field of software Bible apps. Created by Logos Bible Software, this app is called "Faithlife Study Bible" which is an app that comes with two English Bible translations, a Lexham Bible dictionary, and resources such as devotionals, infographics, photos, and videos. There is also a group reading plan and a way to connect with Bible readers in your neighbourhood. What is most cool about this app is that it is offering the NIV for free until Apr 8th, that is.

Designed for tablets and mobile devices, there are apps for the three big environments: IOS, Android, and the Kindle Fire. Click here for more.

It takes a bit of getting used to. Here are some tips on how to download it.

  1. First choose the version you want.
  2. Second, remember that the default Bible version is LEB (Lexham English Bible)
  3. Third, if you want to default into the NIV, tap the top bar, followed by Settings, and choose from the "Preferred Bible" bar. (you may need to figure this out)
  4. In order to download the NIV, you may need to swipe the left window which usually begins with a "Go" and some Bible references. Note that as you swipe the left window from right to left, you will be presented with other options like, "Resources," "Favourites," History," and "Search."
  5. Be patient during the first time you are downloading stuff. It takes a while. Once it is all loaded up, the performance will be much faster.
Have fun!
