(AllAfrica Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) App: The Bible
Review: Patrick Buchana
The next time you see someone pulling out their smart phone in church when it's time to read the Bible, don't curse them thinking they are chatting while others are praying.
We are in an era where everything that was once tiresome to carry is right on our phone!
Pros: Everywhere you go, you have your Bible with you and the best part of it is that you can highlight a verse and share it on social media. You can also get the different versions of the Bible and choose which one you prefer.
Cons: It doesn't give you the feel you previously had while you held the Bible in your hands.
The core of the Bible app is built around accessing and cross-referencing passages. When you open it, it will show Genesis 1:1 but will provide onscreen directions to switch to another book and passage, a task which is very easy to do thanks to a built-in browser that works seamlessly.
If you don't know what passage you're looking for, swiping will bring you through a list of available passages quickly, as well.
Along with other functions like daily reading schedules, tagging, a history to see which passages you've viewed recently, and highlighting and translation checking tools, this is a very deep app.
