ESV Bible app review: enjoy reading the Bible and sharing verses with friends

Reviews

Introduction

Gone are the days when you had to carry a Bible and notebook around to read and note various verses that inspire and motivate you. Crossway has come up with an awesome iOS app, ESV Bible, that is programmed to redefine the manner in which you read the word of God. The app is currently free and the default language is English.

Discover a New Way of Reading the Bible

ESV Bible is a convenient app that allows users to access the Bible from anywhere in the world at any time. The app has an intuitive interface that is very user-friendly so you will not have to seek assistance from the experienced users. For instance, you will be able to move straight to the footnotes or cross-references when looking for a specific passage or story in the Bible.

Looking for a particular verse is very easy as it has a dynamic search feature that will automatically look through the entire Bible to give you an accurate result. Unlike other similar apps that just provide text, this one has a high-quality audio that is programmed to read the verses aloud for you. This way, you can carry on with your daily chores and still enjoy listening to the word of God.

ESV Bible also allows one to take notes and even capture thoughts seamlessly using its note-taking capabilities. For instance, you can take notes as you listen to a personal Bible Study or sermon. 

Best Features of ESV Bible

Apart from the dynamic search feature that allows you to locate virtually any verse in the Bible, ESV verse allows users to highlight specific verses for future reference by just tapping them. You can decide to go a step further and save some of the highlights in your future reference favorite list.

It is also possible to synchronize all the highlighted verses with your favorite passages and notes using your personal ESVBible.org account. This means that you will be able to gain access to your favorite verses faster without having to scroll an entire book.

The high-quality audio is another attribute that gives this application an upper-hand in the market. As mentioned earlier, you will be able to listen to virtually any passage or sermon in the app by just clicking on the “Listen” tab. All you need to do is adjust the volume on your device to suit your surroundings or environment.

You can also share some of the verses with friends and family members through social media, text messaging, and email.
