Free apps for the iPhone, iPad or Android are always nice to find. Discover one that is in line with the Christian lifestyle because the combination of free and faith-centered is remarkable.
God instructed believers to keep His Word close by as they go through life:
Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. —Deuteronomy 11:18, KJV
Modern technology makes it easy to always have helpful tools on hand to enhance the Christian walk and to always be ready in helping others stay focused on the truth.
Perhaps the most desired app for the Christian is a Bible app. Not only does a Bible app put God’s Word literally at your fingertips, but it makes it easier to transport the Scriptures to and from church and Bible study groups.
Bible apps are usually more than just a free download of the complete Bible in a variety of versions. Often, they include commentaries, maps and other tools that allow for deep Bible studies as well. Some of the most popular free Bible apps include:
- You Version Bible for iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry – This app allows you to read, study, highlight, bookmark and even compare two versions side-by-side.
- Bible Reader by Olive Tree for iPhone, iPad or Blackberry – This app provides study help, such as maps and commentaries, and allows for highlighting and bookmarking passages.
- ESV Bible by Crossway for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch – This app does not require an internet connection after download. With internet, however, this Bible app allows you to read, take notes and even post passages to Twitter.
- Touch Bible for Android, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch – This app allows for quick verse location with the “Dial-a-Verse” feature and is available without internet connection, making it a nice free Bible download for the iPod Touch.
Sometimes a quick pick-me-up verse of the day is all that is needed for a moment of inspiration. The following free apps do the trick:
- Daily Bible Inspirations for iPhone or iPad
- Daily Bible Verses for Android
- Verse-A-Day Bible Verses for Android

Another area of the Christian lifestyle includes music. If there is a local Christian radio station nearby, most have their own app to download for free music streaming. If not, K-LOVE, BBN Christian Radio or Today’s Christian Music are some great options.
