Sure to take you back to Sunday School, Sword Drill is an app for the iPhone and iPad which will allow you to look up select verses of the Bible quickly and easily.

This app can be downloaded to your iPhone or iPad completely free of charge. Just head over to the Reference section of the App Store and download this lightweight, 0.1 MB app within seconds.

Let's take a look at its features.

Browse the Bible

The Sword Drill app for the iPad and iPhone boasts a very clean, fast, and clutter-free interface, which you can use to browse the online Bible at the popular and touted website, Bible Gateway.

Alternatively, users can also change the version of the Bible from the Bible Gateway site, or they can choose to use another website altogether by going to the Settings and typing in the website in the URL box.

Simple and Elegant

You can use this app either for daily reading, or to find specific verses from the Bible. The beauty of this app really lies in its simplicity, which allows users to focus on searching and reading without the distractions of other apps.

When you launch the app, you'll find all the Bible books listed in order. You can scroll down the list to the book you wish to read or search. When you tap on a book name, you will be taken to another screen where you can key in the number of the passage, and you'll be instantly taken to the text of your choice.

This app has a very impressive loading time, making it one of the most swift and responsive Bible apps I've reviewed to date.

Perhaps a simple bookmarking function would have added to the overall functionality of the app.
