The Bible Gets an Upgrade

Is it possible to improve on the word of God?

Most believers would say no, but what about improving on its user experience?

After all, the text of the Bible has been shared through scrolls, codexes and movable type. Now, the Bible is also a mobile app that has logged 60 billion minutes of reading time and has won a dedicated following. It has also changed the reading habits of the faithful around the world, as described in my article, “App Puts the Bible in 100 Million Palms.”

The success of that app, YouVersion, is due, in part, to how it has created an improved reading experience for Christians by incorporating tools for sharing and reading plans that divvy up the Bible on various themes (with gentle reminders to keep reading), as well as offering audio versions and even video clips to make the Bible a more modern experience. More.
