Best Apps For Bible Study On Android & iOS

Either you're here to find the best app for Bible study or you're looking to add more tools to study scripture and want to compare the iOS apps to Android apps to make sure you're using the right one.

Why use a study app?

I know the church has become less mandatory throughout the years. To the point where it probably shocks us that we don't put more time into learning it, and also expanding our faith.

I for one am a prime example of that. I go to church once to twice a year willingly, usually around Lent.

Throughout the year if I go more it's for a baptism or etc. There's nothing wrong with maybe not having the time to go, or Sundays being your own day off.

Honestly, we still need to fit some prayer into our day, whether it's before bed, or even before we eat.

It's also best if we get a Bible app to use with Bible study tools for spiritual growth.

Think about having it on the go. I know you're going to say I never have time, but those 10 mins you spent scrolling through Instagram or watching TikTok's you could be reading a passage from the Bible.

At the rate, you check your social media apps you could've finished reading the Bible in the course of a week or less.

I'm not telling you to never check your social media apps, but maybe sacrifice 10-20 minutes out of your day to read some passages.

I have even provided free Bible app suggestions that offer audio so you can listen while you drive.

Personally, this is the best option for me since I drive around a lot, so personally I like to hear a podcast in the morning, but I'm trying to switch up and you could too.

We need to stop pretending we don't have any time. We have plenty of it, so download one of these apps, even for it just to sit there on your phone to remind you that you could choose one day to open it besides opening Instagram.
