If you have a BlackBerry, you really should download the new (and significantly improved) YouVersion.com Bible App for the BlackBerry! As many of you know, I have been a long-time BlackBerry user (I love the iPhone, but it’s not for me). I’ve really been looking forward to this release, not just for me, but for the 16+ million BlackBerry users around the globe.
There are only a few free Bible applications for the BlackBerry and even fewer that provide access to several modern English translations. The Bible App for the BlackBerry provides free access to the 30+ translations in many different languages that you can access through YouVersion.com. Read more about this release or download the application right now.
Also, I continue to be amazed at the response to the Bible App for the iPhone. We have seen more than 550,000 people install it on their iPhone/iPod, and that number continues to grow by thousands every day. We are hearing stories of non-Bible readers who are engaging with Scripture for the very first time. Countless others are more engaged than ever before because they now have quick and easy access to The Bible.
If you are feeling a little left out without an iPhone/iPod/BlackBerry…remember you can access YouVersion.com from any web-enabled mobile phone at http://m.youversion.com.
2009 will bring some significant enhancements to the entire YouVersion.com platform that will help connect even more people to God’s Word. I’m looking forward to sharing more as it develops.
In the meantime, our team would love to hear your feedback about the new Bible App.
