What the Tech: YouVersion Bible App Overview

It is easily the most downloaded religious app in the world. 

The YouVersion Bible app has been downloaded over 250 million times and while you may already have it on your phone, there are some things about this app you may not know.

It was developed by Life Church nearly a decade ago. 

It's a church that started with just 40 members but now has 27 locations in the United States.

YouVersion is the first app to include over 1000 languages and it includes 1482 versions of the Bible.

All versions can be accessed with an internet connection and they can also be downloaded to your phone or tablet to use when you're offline. 

Anglican, Metrical Psalms, a version for teenagers and an Orthodox Jewish version are all available for reading and downloading.

Many of the more popular versions also include audio so you can listen as it's being read.

Verses can be bookmarked and highlighted, and the app also offers the ability to make notes and share them through text messages, emails, or on social media. 

There are reading plans, such as "Read the Bible in 90 days."

You can also follow a devotional or even choose to read the Bible in chronological order.

The YouVersion Bible app can also turn verses into pictures and help you connect with friends to share prayer requests or thoughts.

There is a search function to help you find churches in your area and some churches even upload their most recent worship services or stream them live on Sundays.

There are also other videos and a full-length motion picture on the life of Jesus.

The app is constantly being updated and is compatible with the voice activated Amazon Echo.

The YouVersion Bible app is available for iPhones, iPads, Android, Amazon Echo devices and is also accessible from the www.Bible.com website.
