Gideon Bible App

Gideon Bible App
Have the Bible at your fingertips with the Gideon Bible App (by Gideon's International, the people who place Bibles in hotel rooms and a host of other places). Simply select your language and your version (the English language version offers three different versions - the English Standard Version and two versions of the King James, one with dramatic effects and the other without), and either read or listen to whichever New or Old Testament text you'd like to (the app has been developed with tech by Faith Comes By Hearing). The free app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices, also comes with a series of 'helps' to aid you in finding a Biblical text in answer to a particular situation, whether it's for help in a time of need or with life problems, a page about making a decision to follow Christ and a 'notebook' feature which allows you to write notes, bookmark or highlight certain passages (although you have to log-in to access these features).
