About Ultra-Simple Bible Reader

Ultra-Simple Bible Reader:
- Share/Email Verse(s) as Pictures on Social Media or via an email client...any in-chapter passage can be shared/emailed in full as a Picture! (Share-as-Text also works -- but Share-as-Picture gets around a lot of character limiting issues on sites like Twitter and Facebook)
- Download translations for Offline Reading in English, German, Spanish, French, Tagalog, and Swedish!
- Ultra-Fast Navigation and Load times. This is an extremely fast Bible reader, even on mid-range devices. You shouldn't have to wait a full minute to load a Bible app, and if it's been downloaded, you shouldn't have to download the same content again and again!
- Highlight and Share to your heart's content (or at least up until the rate limits of Twitter, Facebook, etc.) :)
- Choose from 10 different color themes (in various colors, with 5 Light and 5 Dark theme options)
- Choose from various Font styles
- Highlight verses and verse ranges in 15 different colors
- Quick Zoom In/Zoom Out makes it quick and easy to see the text (it can get pretty huge)
- Linked Footnotes (Lexham English Bible)
- Again, the Share-as-Picture is a really neat feature that we've used on our social media sites to get the Word of God out in a cool way. Feel free to share your favorite verses as pictures!

ANDROID 5.x and 6.0 USERS: Page Encoding issue from ISO-8859-1 deprecation has been FIXED! If you have RVA, LSG, or LUT translations installed, delete them and reinstall. This is also backwards-compatible with Android pre-5.0.

If you want a more full-featured Bible App, check out my other Bible Android App, TurboBible. TurboBible has an extra reader, concordance search, evangelistic presentation, notes, prayer section, verse-of-the-day, and so much more. Both are highly optimized to run FAST, but especially this one. People have nicknamed this 'TURBOEST Bible', but again, this is the very simple alternative, so it has a lot less to process.

I hope you enjoy the App, and may God be glorified through your use of it!

Some of the translations are extremely similar. How about adding the classic amplified, and the message. But even so excellent

Works as advertised. Great app

by D####:

Cross Allegiance's Turbo Bible is quick, but this is virtually instantaneous! The only Bible app fast enough to follow along when someone names a passage and immediately starts reading it.
