Android App Video Review: ESV Bible

by Erik Fikkert

There are a ton of bible apps in the Android Market to choose from. If you happen to be someone who would like a bible on your Android phone, there are literally over a hundred apps to wade through. Some versions will cost you upwards to twenty dollars, while others are offered for free.

The ESV Bible from Crossway is one of the free options available and might very well be one of the best. Though the only translation in the app is the English Standard Version, it is amazing the translation is free. All other ESV bibles will cost you some sort of pocket change.

This version has obviously been thought through as far as design is concerned. Immediately upon opening the app for the first time, the user will be presented with an attractive list of all the books of the bible. Tapping on one book will display the available chapters and tapping on one will open that chapter for reading. Verses can be highlighted, favorited, or shared via Twitter and email. The app also maintains a history of all the verses you have read which is great for later reference if you are doing a study. Users can also add a note to verses as well, making it a great study tool.

Overall, you have plenty of options to look through if you need a bible app, but if you aren't too set on a translation, the ESV Bible is free and looks great. Check it out.
