Must Have Android App: Daily Bible

Daily Bible is a free Android app that allows you to keep a copy of the bible with you at all times. It’s a great program for learning new lessons and for searching for passages on the go. Daily Bible has four options available to its users: Daily Verse, Daily Plan, Devotion and Search.
The Daily Verse tab gives you a different bible verse every day. In the settings menu, you can designate the time of day you would like to receive the new verse. You can also add a widget on your home screen to see each day’s verse without opening the Daily Bible application. There are buttons available on the Daily Verse tab that offer additional features. The play button is an awesome feature that allows you to listen to the verse. This can come in handy if you stumble across one with words you don’t know how to pronounce or if you simply want to listen to the verse instead of reading it. The sharing features allow you to share the verse via email, text message, Google Buzz, Facebook or Twitter.

The Daily Plan tab gives a full lesson plan on a different topic each day. Like the Daily Verse tab, you can press the Play button to listen to the lesson. The voice of the guy who reads the lesson plan is nice and soothing and easy to listen to.

The Devotion tab plays podcasts of sermons from Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Billy Graham and many other pastors and speakers. I haven’t gotten the devotions to play yet; this feature does not seem to work well for me.

The last tab is Search, and it allows you to type in a portion of any verse or passage and pull back the full passage from the bible. The settings menu allows you to select from many versions of the bible, such as NKJV, ESV, etc. You can tap the microphone button to speak the information you’d like to search on instead of manually typing it.

Daily bible is not the number one bible app on the market, but it is very popular and widely used. It has been downloaded over a million times and has five stars out of over 30,000 user reviews as of April 2011.
