Celebrating its 400th anniversary this year, the King James Version of the Bible has long been a central part of the English-speaking church. Prized for its beautiful language, its direct and accurate translation of the original languages, and for its longstanding and faithful use by millions of Christians worldwide, the Authorized Version is now available as an app for you to carry with you everywhere.
Key features include:
- Full offline use - no internet connection required for reading, searching or indeed any feature at all.
- Incredible speed - this is the fastest Bible on the App Store, both for starting up, searching and reading. You will be amazed at how fast it is, and simply won't want to go back to slower Bibles.
- Full-text search - just enter a few words and KJV will search the entire Bible to find matching verses. Yes, that's right: it takes just a second or two to search the entire Bible, and you can browse all the results at your leisure.
- Bookmarks - tap on any verse while you're reading and it will be added to your bookmarks list for easy finding later.
- Night mode and adjustable text size - configure the Bible for easy reading just the way you like it.
- Universal app - buy it once, and it works on all your iPhones, iPod touches and iPads!
- Minimal user interface - the app has been designed to give maximum space to the word of God, so the app keeps out of your way as much as possible. When you want to navigate around, just tap the chapter title at the top to bring up the book browser and other options.
NOTE: I have an app on the App Store called Church which includes the King James Bible as one small part of a much larger whole. If you already own Church, you don't need this app as well. If you don't already own Church, what are you waiting for? :)
