Good app but it could be great 4/5
The app need be able to all the social media networking to share it. It will be easier that way to share the app to others. After that I love it, but I cannot share a verse to my bible study group on WhatsApp to discuss. Please fix that for us your users asap. Thank you! The only reason I don't give a 5 stars to the app.
By Riverman 1941
Good app. However I am annoyed by recent pop-ups, right in the middle of a Bible verse, suggesting financial freedom.
Indecent adds! 1/5
Please address this! On the mobile app, and apparently on the website as well, there have been multiple adds with scantily clad people. Unacceptable!
Good but not Great 4/5
The only thing I would change in this app is the ability to open a link within another link. If there a scripture that underlined in blue you can only open that scripture but if that reference another scripture you can't open it. I understand it's a free app. If you just want read your Bible then this would get 5 stars but those of us who want to study this app comes up a little short.
Best Bible App Known To Mankind 5/5
By Brandon Lee Kehl
I've used many different apps for my Spiritual bread and Sword.
I'm a soldier of God and I'm struggling like the rest of you. We must continue to eat the Spiritual Bread or we will have many types of hunger pains.
The app has many voices and most translations and voices to some of the more popular ones. Surely more than other apps.
I fully recommend this to any human being who has compassions and hurt and needs healed by He who made us.
Love It...except... 5/5
I really love using this app, except that they keep changing back from using the Gateway Bible website, and the original published version of the Bible passage. I do not like using Gateway. I love how they originally had it. The reason why I do not like using the Gateway website is because you have to remember what the passage you're supposed to read is; where the other way had it all there, and you didn't have to worry about reading too far, or not enough.
Just recently, when I begin to look for something in the Bible app, an add will pop up. I'll just start typing what I want, then I have to delete add and start again. Very distracting. But other than that I love it.
Looking forward to using this app on a regular basis.
Gateway Bible 5/5
This Bible is free
WOW!!! this is the most sufficient affective thorough Bible that I have ever downloaded
I simply just love it thumbs up!!!!
Multiple translations & continuous audio 4/5
By Hilary phone
This is the only audio bible app I have found that comes in multiple translations such as KJV, NIV, NKJV AMP and 37 more plus it will play continuously from chapter to chapter and book to book until you stop it. Plus you can easily look up things and visually read it instead of audio if you want.
The only problem I have is that often it crashes with the audio. I contacted support who told me to go to settings and click "sync now" and/or completely shut off the phone and restart it. Sometimes it goes days with no problems other times I have issues every night. Hoping they find a fix for it. Other than that I'd highly recommend.
Great way to have the word always 4/5
I love this app. I only wish it would take me to search results first time. Now I type what I want to search for, then search and nothing shows. I go back to select within the search box, then search and finally it comes up. Kinda of annoying.
Used to love this app 2/5
Really unhappy there are now ads on this app!
Application Not Disability Friendly 1/5
By Audio Alert
The Word of God is precious to everyone, even those who can't read, or need to listen. This application now sets a loud alarm for users who listen to the audio and timeout from the app. It is so loud and abrupt that it startled and scared an older adult who listens frequently to the audio.
Many thanks 5/5
I use this app all the time and wake up to my verse each day. :)
Many thanks for the hard work that went into producing this app.
Please do not be discouraged by the grumblers and critical reviewers. The app is wonderful.
Advertisements Distracting 3/5
The app is great with the exception of the advertisements. Can they be removed?
Very impressed! 5/5
By YaYa JD
After using many bible apps I thought I had a favorite but now I have a new one. I actually looked for in-app purchases to buy. I was curious to see what purchased feature could improve this app.
Life CHANGING💗💗 5/5
By Hfcbgc hdvjgfbk
I love this app so much and it has allowed me to read the Bible more often and seek the Lord. I use my headphones and use the "dramatized" version on the audio bible and follow along on the regular Bible reading and I understand it so much more. I started to use the reading plan and using the audio to complete it and it's great because you can get reminders everyday reminding you to read. I plan on writing about what I know from the scriptures in my prayer journal. The only thing is that the reading plans don't have an option where you read Genesis to Revelation which I would prefer but the app is still amazing and I love it and I encourage you to get it to get you closer to Christ with scripture :) ps I highly recommend the NIV version of the Bible because other ones like the KJV are hard to understand in my opinion and the NIV is really easy to read and understand for a 12 year old like me.
I paid the monthly fee to avoid ads and yet they still appear. When I emailed their support to ask they never replied. There are also missing books so I am a little disappointed.
Outstanding Free Audio Bibles 5/5
This app is amazing! Easy to compare a particular verse in ESV to NASB to NIV to AMP, etc. Numerous commentaries, dictionaries, and even includes the entire Reformation Study Bible. Much more comprehensive than Olive Tree, which I paid $40 for.
I love listening to Marquis Laughlin read the ESV. He's engaging and doesn't read too fast, which makes listening to him enjoyable and easy to follow. Move over, Max McLean!
Best Bible app ever 5/5
This app is great every night I can't
Go to sleep I read or listen to it.
In the words of Rick James (Chappelle Skit) 5/5
I LOVE THIS APP 5/5
Best Bible app on the market.
Where are all the commentaries? 1/5
I did the trial for the plus membership and there isn't even half of the commentaries/notes that it stated there was. John MacArthur study isn't on there. I will just settle for the free membership.
Good, but... 2/5
By Rev Ann
This app offers a variety of translations but more paraphrases. (A paraphrase is less helpful for academic study.) If you're going to include the NIV translation, why not include the NRSV?
Very Good 😊 app, but still needs work 4/5
I use this app all the time, but it still needs some updating to keep the bugs 🐜 and kinks ⚙️out the app 📲
Ads why all the ads? Don't like it 1/5
A big ad comes up when I open and then there is stuff on side
Bible Gateway iPhone app 5/5
I love being able to so easily have the Bible with me all the time! The bonus is having different versions available at the touch of my finger. I am able to do my devotions so easily. It's easy to use and I love being able to listen to Scripture at times. It's a different way to study the Word of God, and an easy way to memorize the Holy Scriptures! I give this app five stars and A+++++
Thank God 5/5
Thanking God ,this app is super ,God bless you all for developing it to help spread the gospel . I am able to get on my iPad or phone to reference when sharing God's word .
Fix the Audio! 4/5
Love this app! It's my favorite Bible app but when I try to do the read-along audio, it always stops and I can't even put it back to where it left off. Please fix that!
Needs to improved more, update to an adds free app. Need more bible versions.
Even though I enjoy using this app, I wish there was a commentary to explain the history and meaning of the reading I choose to read. To know the meanings or definitions of some words or the reason for doing things the way they did according to their culture is helpful for today's culture to understand.
I think this is the bible app 5/5
By Roses Creations
Before I found this app I would never read my bible then I read 7 chapters in a half
Stop with the changes! Messed up ODB 3/5
By L J E
Why is there only one color in the highlight function? Also the connection with ODB bounces all over the place!
John 1 1/5
Audio: Scripture does not scroll while reading
My go to app 5/5
By Old Lenovo
I'm grateful that I can access many of the full versions features through this app. TYBG 🤘🏻
Wonderful is God's Word 5/5
By FL Carter
Thank you for this on line bible, Praise God.
Great app just missing 1 thing.. 4/5
A sleep timer. I fall asleep to the readings every night. If it had a timer it'd be my fav bible app.
Bible App 5/5
By Jesus's Diciple
Awesome App for daily Bible reading and more
By Listen to me peeps
I use this app while I'm taking notes in another app, so there's a lot of flipping between the apps. Every time I leave Bible Gateway and go back to it, the app automatically goes back to the dashboard, away from the passage I was on. I have to search for the app again. This slows me down in a serious way and makes me want to use another app.
Generally Great! I mean it's FREE folks! 5/5
Great App for reading and study God's word but agree needs some bug fixing and dislike ads I don't care to see. I paid to upgrade was not supposed to see ads! I'm hoping to see the new plus version for iOS soon, I hope the developers realize that in this new society everyone, everyone is using their iOS devices. As in everything else, we just want to stop being "SOLD" to, and FOLLOWED, EVERYWHERE WE GO!
So Very Disappointed!! 1/5
BibleGateway.com is my "go to" resource on the Internet. But this app OMITS All modern Catholic translations!
Why the BIAS????
Versatile, Easy to Use 4/5
An adequate bible app with many translations, and options for commentaries, audio, notes, etc. However, this app would garner 5 stars if the option for Reading Plans actually worked on my device.
BIBLE GATEWAY 5/5
I love how I can have the Bible and my favorite verses close to me. I can retrieve them at any time! I also I get "new versus" to explore daily from this APP.
I love it!!!
Thank you for always being with me!
I bought yhe plus plan, which says it makes use of the Bible ad free, but on the ios app ads still show, even when logged in. Very mad.
Wish list 4/5
Landscape viewing on mobile phones.
Internet Connection 3/5
I really like this app I just wish I could use it without internet connection. Other than that this app is great.
Great for daily and research understanding of Gods Word 5/5
Great for understanding and daily scripture reading. I highly recommend :)
Love the KJV dramatized audio. My husband and I read and listen everyday. It helps with understanding and is wonderful when we go through long lists of genealogy and such. I believe the KJV is the only inspired Word of God and it's refreshing to find it in audio.
Was GREAT! 4/5
Now crashing on iPad. Resources bible links don't open all the time . . . Then I have to open Holy Bible to look up the scripture or loose my place in the resource I'm reading.
Has everything I need 5/5
When I go to look for something online like the other day I wanted a reading plan in chronological order. I found one at another site and the saw they had an app so I installed it. Then I remembered to check bible gateway and of course they had a plan in chronological order. So I uninstalled the other app. Because Bible Gateway is all I need.
