Have you heard of YouVersion? If not, let me go ahead and fill you in.
As quoted on their site.
YouVersion is: “A revolutionary online Bible that enables community and collaboration like never before. Organize important content; share thoughts, links and videos; and collaborate with others.”
It’s purpose: “To lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.”
There are many online Bible’s out there that are sadly “Plain Vanilla” search boxes. YouVersion is different. Not only is the web interface attractive, and smooth, the app is cram packed with collaboration features. Take a look at some of these for instance.
- Ability to search the bible by simply typing in a “Reference” or “Keyword”.
- 40 different translations in 22 languages.
- Ability to compare different translations side by side.
- Ability to play via “Audio”.
- Personal “Journal” of notes etc. (Account Registration Required)
- Contribute and comment on verses or sections of scripture, or read contributions from others.
- Tag, bookmark, or link verses or sections of scripture.
- The One-Year Reading Plan provides daily selections to keep you on track when you’re on the go.
- Similar to “twitter” you can follow other members and track there contributions. (So, invite your friends.)
- The site is completely mobile friendly, so take it with you!
- Did I mention that there is and “app” for that?
- Oh, It’s FREE!
This app is rich, feature packed, and constantly improving. If you want to know all that it can do for you, you will have to check it out for yourself.
What an awesome way to use technology to spend time with our more than worthy Creator. Not to mention a fun way to dive in the Word.
As I get time, I will blog about the new ability of YouVersion called “YouVersion Live“. But for now, this should keep you busy.
I’ve included some screenshots and videos below that I have gathered to give you a taste.
