“The NIV is the most widely accepted contemporary Bible translation today. More people buy the NIV Bible than any other English-language translation. The NIV was created and is maintained with the mandate to accurately and faithfully translate the original Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic biblical texts in clearly understandable English.”
Taking up only slightly over 13 MB, NIV Bible takes up relatively little space, and can be read in portrait or landscape orientation.
Night mode feature turns pages to light text on a dark background to reduce eye strain for reading before slumber. You can enable the autoscroll so that you don’t have flip pages with your finger, with adjustable speed to suit your reading pace.
And unlike the hard copy counterpart sitting by your bedside table, font-type and text-size can also be adjusted to improve readability and user comfort.
If you find something of interest and need to share it with church-goers, friends and family, notes can easily be emailed out.
Don’t deface your age-old trusty and faithful Bible with a yellow highlighter. Use the in-app highlighting feature by single tap to emphasize verses and passages for your own use or for showing it to someone.
Underlined words within the Old and New Testaments provide cross-references across the Bible simply by tap-and-holding on these words.
If you need to find a particular topic or verse, a full-text search enables you to do just that by typing in a keyword.
