Logos Bible Software has released a free iPhone app designed to help people get more into Bible study than ever before. Unlike most Bible-related iPhone apps, which are merely Bible readers, the Logos Bible Software iPhone app delivers tools and resources to help you study the Bible with your iPhone or iPod Touch in ways never before implemented on a mobile device.
“When we set out to develop our iPhone app, we wanted to replicate the functionality of our desktop software,” said Bob Pritchett, President of Logos Bible Software, in the press release. “Not only did we do it, but we are now able to reach our greater goal of getting more people into the study of God’s Word by giving this app away for free.”
Currently the Logos Bible Software iPhone app is a free download that can access 30 of the Bibles available at Logos’ Online Bible with no registration required. If a user would like to access even more titles, they may register for an account and get access to an additional 30+ titles from devotionals, to commentaries, to original biblical language resources including:
• Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
• Easton’s Bible Dictionary
• Systematic Theology (Strong)
• New Nave’s Topical Bible
• Morning and Evening
• Strong’s Concise Dictionary of the Words of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek Testament
• Dictionary of the Vulgate New Testament
• And many more…
If you have the newest version of Logos Bible Software’s desktop application, Logos 4, then you will also have access to many of the books from your Logos base package. Currently more than 2,000 titles can be viewed on the Logos Bible Software iPhone app and more will be added regularly until more than 10,000 titles are available on the iPhone.
The Logos Bible Software iPhone app is designed to help you do more than just read the Bible. Dig deeper into the Scripture with the Passage Guide. Enter a verse and click “go” to receive a report linking directly to commentaries referencing your verse. The Passage Guide also provides a cross reference list, media resources, topics, and interesting words. All linked to resources in your library.
A second way to get deeper into Bible study is through a Bible Word Study. Tap and hold any word in a Bible with a reverse interlinear and a pop-up will display the English word along with all the original language information. From this pop-up, click Bible Word Study to see the definition, pronunciation, translations, and example uses of the various translations.
Finally, complete your Bible study by comparing verse across various translations with the Text Comparison tool. Open a verse in Text Comparison and see exactly where each translation differs. No other Bible app for the iPhone provides the depth of tools for Bible study that the free Logos Bible Software app provides.
