GloBible Lite Now a free download

I bought a copy of Glo Bible a few years back from Koorong as it has a heap of maps and a Bible time line and some quite good virtual tours through of historical Bible sites.  They’ve now released a lite version for iPhone/iPad and windows/mac which has all the same maps/photos and virtual tours which load from their website.  Well worth a look now it’s free.

Creation Ministries Mobile Apps

Creation Ministries attempt at an app is very nice and it’s free too.  You can access the latest news and information from Creation Ministries. Watch short videos on a variety of topics, then share them with your friends via Twitter, Facebook, or email.  Well worth getting for the price.  🙂

Our Daily Bread iPhone/iPad

Our Daily Bread is available on the iPhone/iPad for 99c.  It doesn’t really contain anything earthshattering in terms of content and basically just reads their web site at this stage and links to Biblegateway.com.   The iPhone version makes it easy to read but the iPad version is a bit pointless as their website renders fine in the browser.  Hopefully later updates contain more content.  Still the 99c goes towards supporting their ministry.

Bible.Is Mobile Bible Software

Without trying to start a debate about whether Apple is good or bad, I just wanted to post a couple of useful mobile (iPhone / iPad) apps that I use. Some of them are available on that other operating system Android. 😉

  • Bible.Is is a free app that lets you read or listen to the Bible on the go. It has various versions and includes a both a standard and ‘dramatic’ KJV audio version. Just be aware that it streams the audio off the website so you don’t get surprised by a large 3G data bill. Wireless works as well of course.
  • They also have Android and a web site version as well.

17 Oct :: Edit – the latest version has the option to download all the audio to the local device so you can listen offline now.
