YouVersion Bible App
Launched in 2008, YouVersion is a downloadable Bible app for smartphones that offers a wide range of languages and versions.
TheBible Plan subscription allows YouVersion users to pair daily verses from the Bible with audio, video or devotional content. These plans are available in more than 50 languages.
Founder, Bobby Gruenewald, said in an interview that the app’s overall mission is to make access to scripture easier.
“We’ve added several features focused on developing a habit of reading or listening to the Bible every day,” he said.
“We’re encouraged to see Bible Plan subscriptions continue to increase year after year, and we’re so grateful for our partners who make their content available on the Bible App.”
YouVersion’s Bible Plan
Over 13,000 different Bible plans are being offered in about 1,000 languages.
“Starting a Bible Plan is one of the best ways to build a discipline of daily Bible reading within the app. In the last year, we’ve added hundreds of new content partnerships, resulting in more than 2,500 new Bible Plans in 2018,” Gruenewald continued.
“Our hope is that by leveraging all the features offered in the Bible App, [YouVersion users] develop a love for engaging with the Bible daily. So they can begin to recognize God’s presence in their everyday lives.”
