10 best Bible apps and Bible study apps for Android
The modern age has made it much easier for those who are religious. Especially those who want to study religious texts like the Holy Bible. Not long ago, you’d have to find a pocket Bible or figure out a way to carry that giant book around with you all the time. We know you don’t mind. However, it’s still nicer having all of it on your phone for easy access and quick reference. Those going to the comment section to suggest apps or discuss the topic, please be courteous to others. We’re not here to judge and neither should you.
Here are the best Bible apps and Bible study apps for Android! We are aware that there are many different faiths that use the Bible and many different versions of the Bible. Again, we’re not saying any particular version of the Bible is better than any other. Most of these should work for most religions that use the Bible.
The best bible apps for Android
And Bible is a super simple Bible app with plenty of features. It includes over 40 English Bibles, including NASNB, KJV, NET, and others. In addition, the app has commentaries, a search, a space for personal note-taking, and even maps of the areas in the Bible. It’s a surprisingly decent app for Bible study, especially with all of the extra reference materials. Plus, the app is entirely free, open-source, and has no advertising. The UI could be better, but everything else is basically great.
Price: Free / $14.95 per month / Book prices vary
Audible is a popular audiobook platform. It specializes in books read by a human voice. Luckily, they have a few different editions of the Bible that you can choose from. You can listen to the Bible pretty much anywhere you want. That includes your home, the car, or even while taking a walk. It won’t replace your physical copy of the book. However, it is one of the better companion Bible apps that we’ve found.
Bible App for Kids
The Bible App for Kids is exactly what you think it is. It’s a Bible app for kids. It’s one of many apps in the YouVersion Bible apps style that’s starting to get very popular. In this one, kids can play through an interactive adventure that teaches them more about the Bible, what happened in it, and the people from it. There are also challenges, fun cartoons, and other stuff. It’s also completely free with no in-app purchases. That makes it great for those on a budget.

You also get 20 audiobook versions of the Bible in various languages, the ability to search each one for your favorite passages, and the ability to take notes. There is a premium version for a subscription price that adds some additional Bible Study features.
Bible by Life Church
The Bible app by Life Church is probably the best of all the Bible apps. It comes with a whole bunch of features. The app gives you offline access so you can read the Bible anywhere. On top of that, there are 1400 versions in a variety of languages. You can read whatever version you want. It also comes with a Verse of the Day, audio versions of the Bible, and more. Some of the versions it comes with include the King James Version, New International Version, New King James Version, New Living Translation, English Standard Version, NASB, The Message, Yoruba, Zulu, and others. That makes it one of the more powerful Bible study apps also. It’s completely free with no in-app purchases.
Daily Bible Verse
Daily Bible Verse is an app that shows you daily Bible verses. We know, it’s not the most creative name ever. It doesn’t really matter, though. The app does a great job at showing you a different verse every day so you have something to read up about. You can also pick between the KJV or the NIV versions of the Bible at your leisure. You can save your favorites or you can share them on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites as well. It’s also a free app with no in-app purchases.
Our Daily Bread
Our Daily Bread is a Christian group that began in the 1930s. Since then, they have written a variety of works to talk about God, Christianity, and how to let God into your life. It’s essentially a magazine for the faithful. The app lets you download various things that you can read. You can get up to a month of previous work. The app also gives you reminders so you can remember for Bible study, daily reading ideas from the Bible, and a public comment section. The app is a bit old school, but it works pretty well.
Price: Free / $3.99
Podcast Addict is an outstanding podcast app. A lot of churches publish Sunday sermons as podcasts in case you miss the service yourself. Additionally, there are plenty of Bible-oriented podcasts with all sorts of different premises and messages. Podcast Addict’s UI is simple with a bunch of options for playlists and downloads. The pro version is the same as the free version except there are no ads. Podcast Addict also works with Android Auto, Wear OS, and Google Chromecast. Some other options include Doggcatcher, Pocket Casts, and Podcast Go.
The Study Bible
Price: Free / $5.99
The Study Bible is perhaps the best of the Bible study apps. It covers mostly the New Testament although it will touch on the Old Testament if needed. It also contains several versions of the Bible, including the ESV, KJV, and NAS. With the app, you can also listen as several famous Christian personalities answer various questions about the Bible, life, and how you can connect one to the other. You can download it and check it out for free or pay $5.99 for the full version of the app.
Price: Free / Up to $58.99
Tecarta Bible is a solid all-around app for the faithful. It includes the KJV version of the Bible for free. You can get over half a dozen translations through in-app purchases if you want a different version. You can also highlight your favorite verses, check out a verse of the day, and more. There are also commentaries and devotionals for those who want to read more. There are a small number of ads in the app. However, any in-app purchase will remove them permanently. The app also sells various study Bibles, hence the in-app purchases.
Bonus: JW Library
JW Library is a Bible app specifically for Jehovah’s Witnesses. However, it has a lot of stuff that any faithful person can use. It includes Bible translations in over 100 languages, various versions of the Bible, and a comparison tool for all of the various versions of the Bible. It’s great for Bible Study if you use the Bible tools specifically. However, most of the rest of its content is aimed specifically at Jehovah’s Witnesses. Thus, it may not be best for those who don’t follow that faith specifically. We’re not entirely sure, but we didn’t see any significant problems. Apparently so do few others because the app has over a million reviews and a 4.9 rating. That’s insane.
