E-readers have replaced most paperbound books, and the Bible is no exception. JW-Bible lets you take the Bible with you on your smartphone so that you can refer to it at a moment's notice. The app includes super-easy navigation so that you can quickly find your favorite book, chapter, and verse in a pinch.
After downloading JW-Bible, we had to first select a language by switching the appropriate button to 'on.' The app includes a very long list of languages to translate, including Arabic, Bulgarian, Czech, Dutch, and more. We selected English and the app immediately went to work downloading the translated text in our language of choice. Genesis 1:1-31 appeared on our iPhone screen. If you don't want to read the text, just tap the speaker icon at the top of the screen and a pleasant voice will read the text aloud. Looking for a specific verse or sentence? Just tap the magnifying glass to search. A navigation bar at the bottom of the screen allowed us to select a new language, but when we did, a bug caused the app to shut down on us. When we went back to try the same thing, everything worked as it should. There is a Settings feature to adjust the brightness and font size, as well as the font type. A quick tap and slide and we were able to view the text in a much larger print that was easier on the eyes. We tried to change the Navigation Style to a two-column format, but it didn't change on our phone. We were thinking that perhaps this feature works better on a much larger screen, such as an iPad. A Home button lets you select which book you'd like to view. The Bookmark feature made it incredibly easy to save a particular book, chapter and verse, and write our own notes to come back to at a later time.
All in all, if you're looking for a way to take the Bible with you wherever you, JW-Bible is a solid choice. We recommend it for all users.
