I have no interest in the theology of the Christian Bible, but I think it’s a fascinating piece of literature. This app is amazingly complete, with just about every translation available. You can compare translations side by side synchronized, some versions have audio you can play along with the text, and they have a huge set of bible reading routines to read the entire bible in 90 days or a year or whatever. Really well done for those of us who have a purely secular interest in the Christian Bibles.

This is a great app to have when someone challenges your faith and you need to whip out your Bible to defend your position. The search function could use some improvement, but it's better than lugging around a giant print Bible. Of course, the print version is better for thumping. ;-)

FREE. Plus, there are so many translations available and in different languages. A recent feature is offline reading which is very convenient. Another feature that works well is the reading plan feature with a variety of reading plans available that can sync between devices. Highly recommend this app.
