Maximize these Productivity Apps for Your Bible Reading Journey

The invention of the smartphone has created a dynamic shift in the way we live. Some of the things that we do today may seem extremely foreign – and even unimaginable – for those who came before us. We can use the internet to order from different shops online, and we can customize that order to our specifications. We can book a ride going home with just a scroll, swipe, and tap. The car or taxi would then use satellite-based technology to reach us at our preferred pick-up point. The smartphone’s basic features are already powerful, but it has this one special feature that really makes it a game-changer. We are talking about “apps.”

Apps are typically categorized by their main purpose and technical function. In the different app stores available (Apple, Google, Amazon, etc.), they are divided under categories like: productivity, education, games, entertainment, and more.

What can be a better way to utilize such a marvelous piece of technology than to use it to further enhance one’s Bible reading experience?

Here is a list of apps you can take a look at and consider. We hope and pray that you find the one you need to make your Bible reading an even sweeter time of fellowship than it already is.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
