‘YouVersion’ user feedback

John Maybury

(Pastor, Harefield Church)

‘For android, I use YouVersion Bible.  It’s a free app with some downloadable versions.  There are loads of reading plans and it is easily bookmarked and shareable in lots of ways.  NIV is available for free download at the moment.  Some of the versions are audio enabled. Reminders can be set.  It gets my own personal seal of approval.’
