Bibles

bibleBible (free) LifeChurch.tv’s Bible (known more commonly as “YouVersion”), my favorite app of all, was one of the very first apps offered when the iTunes app store was launched, and it remains among the all-time most popular apps on all platforms. Completely free, it provides the Bible in hundreds of languages and translations, with more being added regularly. Many even include audio. Copyright agreements allow some versions to be downloaded for offline use; others require a data connection (cellular or Wi-Fi). A huge variety of reading plans, some with devotional material, are available (YouVersion will even help you create your own) with the option to be reminded when you fall behind on your reading. Among the many other features are the ability to highlight and make notes (which will sync across your devices) and share verses on Twitter and Facebook.

BrowserBible (free) This multi-platform webapp is a full-fledged multi-language Bible software program that runs in mobile and desktop browsers. Intended to run off an SD chip in closed countries.
