NIV Study Bible 5/5
Having a full-featured NIV study bible on my phone is fantastic. Thank you for putting this tremendous resource at my fingertips! One comment (and one request), however, for your consideration:
The 2011 version of the NIV is less faithful to the original text than the 1984 version. I realize some may be more comfortable with the more "politically correct" word substitutions found in the 2011 version but others (like me, I guess) think God's word is not "improved" when overlaid with our cultural preferences. In fact, the truth of God's word is far more likely to be compromised when we alter it to be more acceptable to the world.
That said, I recognize some prefer the 2011 version. Any chance you might offer a NIV 1984 version of this app as well?
So easy! Makes me so consistent 5/5
I have always loved the feel of a Printed Bible in my hand, but I am totally so on this e-Bible. I have had it for several years and it has made my reading so much easier and richer. I can take it with me wherever I go and read the Word anywhere. The notes are fantastic and the references very helpful.
Syncing between iPhone and iPad. 4/5
By Premium missing
I enjoy this study bible very much. The one thing I can’t figure out is how or if I can sync between my iPhone and iPad. I read the Bible in both but forget my place where I stopped reading in one or the other. I found the sync feature but it doesn’t accomplish syncing between the two to show me where I left off reading. I would love to have someone give this information.
Books of the Bible 1/5
The book title drop down no longer works after the last update, making it difficult to use. How do I contact the developer?
My walk with god 5/5
To open my bible app and see exactly what god what’s you to read. Thank you god. I am grateful for everything
NIV bible 5/5
I have been having problems with my eyes, this is a great app to have. I love the notes. Great.
Blessed App! 5/5
This app is divinely blessed and a great resource for any person interested in learning more from God’s word. It is useful for beginners as well as experienced Bible students. The insights in the commentary are truly inspired and will help draw the reader closer to God if their hearts and minds are open to receiving the message!
What a blessing 5/5
This makes studying so much easier which makes it more likely that I’ll actually study. And after all, isn’t that what it’s all about?
I have the devotional of the day turned on and read that every morning and that gets me started. From there I start cross referencing verses from different books with the easy to follow guides and read notes along the side that help clarify difficult to read passages or give information about the time period. Before I know it I’ve been reading for 30 minutes to an hour. I love it.
New to it. 5/5

NIV Study Bible very helpful 5/5
I have used the hardback paper edition this study Bible for years and always found it useful. Especially on controversial passages it is usually quiet fair in presenting differing viewpoints. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to navigate the app version of this very helpful book. I heartily recommend it.
Appreciate app, but not intuitive 3/5
Edited: ever since the last update, this app freezes every time I open it. I’m no longer able to use the app. Please fix this!
I have appreciated studying the word with this app. It's really helpful to be able to read the word and glance over at the study notes without having to hunt for the related note. The app has made Bible study more pleasurable for me, specially since my vision is not that great, so reading a print Bible can be uncomfortable.
However, I recently bought one of the commentaries. Ever since, I have had a lot of difficulty figuring out how to display the Bible, the notes, or the commentary when I want them. I think I may have figured it out now, but it literally took a couple of weeks. At first I could just see the commentary, then I was able to get the commentary and the Bible next to each other, but I couldn't get back the study notes. I guess once I figure it out, I will enjoy, but right now, it's annoying.
I love this app. 4/5
I love this app. The only improvement I would like to see is the ability to use my Apple Pencil to write notes. It is awesome to have the study notes to look at as I read the text!!
NIV Bible electronic version 5/5
This is an excellent application for phone use. It allows the user to access to the Bible any and all times of the day.
Needs a help section 2/5
If there is a way to see more than one translation at a time, I certainly can’t find it. Using an iPhone X, I can only see one version at a time. I find no access to any help features. Basically, this is not useful to me.
Do not like wheel for book, chapter and verse. The old method was much better and a lot faster. Otherwise very good. Is it possible to change back to the previous method of selecting book, chapter and verse?
Great app 5/5
Sole electronic bible app used 5/5
This is the best study bible out there, and I've tried several. The regular Bible app is a good freebie, but this beats the Glo Bible app if you're willing to pay for the extra resources.
Limited useful app 2/5
By Jim Dunny
In iOS this app is terrible. The interface does not allow easy change between translations. If there is way to change Bible translations, it is not intuitive. If don’t need to use more than one translation this is a very good app and access to different books of a particular bible is easy.
Very easy to use and works well across devices 5/5
Love this app. Makes daily bible study so easy. I can see multiple translations and study guides at the same time while I'm taking my own notes. Fantastic. Then, later if I want to remember the study I did that morning on my ipad, I can open my iphone and read it there. Great job.
Great Bible App 5/5
By TyB i3
This is a very easy to use and intuitive study Bible. Took me less than 5 minutes to figure out and use the study features and there is so much more.
By Carolyn 47
This Bible app is wonderful. The study guide is so helpful and gives you the other places in the Bible on a given story . This app makes it so much easier to study the Bible. I had another Bible app that just wasn’t as easy and helpful to use. So glad I have this one now.
When I purchased your bible app I did so believing that you get what you pay for. I tried free apps with the audio feature but it didn’t last long before they shut it off and advised me that I had to start paying for it to continue. So I payed about $17.00 for you’re app and about a week later you told me the same thing. That I would have to start paying to continue the audio feature. I don’t have the words express my disappointment in you’re tactics!! I mean really! A bible company using sneak attack tactics like this! There was no mention of this in you’re add! I will be deleting the entire app within 24 hours and I want my money back!!!
Amazing Product 5/5
I can't say enough good things about this eBible. It has so many useful features, and I seem to discover new ones or new combinations frequently. I particularly am impressed with how I can go through a chain of notes and cross references by finger touch and then return to my original location instantaneously. When I was having difficulty trying to use one feature, I used Help and got an email response within hours. Clearly a lot of thought went into this product.
Must have for podcasts 5/5
This app fixes what Apple broke when they separated and the podcast and audio apps
Always with me 5/5
By Prickly Pig
I use this app several times a week to check references in scripture. I love that it is always with me.
Doesn’t maintain position 3/5
While using the app, if my iPad goes to sleep, any open resource on the right side will jump back to the beginning. I have the preachers commentary and some of the sections can be long. If I am teaching and don’t keep my iPad awake, when I resume I’ve lost where I am at. I’ve turn off the sync with bible and that didn’t help.
A complete resource for Bible study 5/5
Tecarta’s NIV Study Bible is technically sound, regularly supported, infinitely expandable and easy-to-use. Whether one wants only to read the Word or deeply study and compare events surrounding the scriptures, this application will not disappoint.
Make side by side comparisons to other Bibles, navigate to cross-referenced passages, highlight verses, review furnished study notes highlighted by icons, organize and save personal notes, enjoy maps, illustrations, photos and videos ... so much but so usable for ANY user. Though I could write much more, I recommend reading the fact sheet to see if the features meet your needs .. and then having confidence that you can easily use this application even if you’re a technology novice.
Live and love the word 5/5
By Al of mr.m
I love having this bible in my phone and it can tag so many of my good things.
Niv Study Bible 4/5
By Mike Yeoman
Love the verse of the day and daily devotion
This is a wonderful bible app. The cross references, definitions, maps and images, and study notes/commentary - it has everything. Very thankful and worth the purchase.
I truly love this program. The more I use it the better it gets.
There is one thing that would be nice and that would be to be able to write notes with the pen or write in the margins.
Love the app 5/5
A real blessing in my life. Struggling with indifference in my life...I thank you for this ‘gift’ of the Bible on my iPad, phone and computer.
I really like the new audio reading of the scripture.
This is a blessing ! 5/5
If u need to study the Bible, don’t look further, this is it!
By Wagner junior
I use my iPad Pro for all reading. This app gives me everything I want to keep in touch with what is most important.
Really enjoy using this app 5/5
I have really enjoyed using this app. Has good features and good commentary.
Love this Psalm 5/5
By Jane in sunny FL
I feel so blessed! Even though life is hard; knowing that HE is in the heaven waiting for His Own, makes it a great deal smoother.
But, mainly I am thankful that you guys made the NIV Bible available online, so everyone who seeks comfort and truth can pick up an electronic iPad and find their God!
Niv xref. and copy functions are not working with iOS 8 5/5
I absolutely love this app and its functions with multiple translations and study materials. I use it every day. Fantastic!
If there is any chance for additional improvements, I look forward for that. Like to see hyperlink capability for the personal notes.
poor audio resolution 2/5
the book is awesome, but the low resolution of audio bothers me a lot to pay arrentiin to the bible meditation.
Amazing app 5/5
This app is truly an amazing tool for all Christians to use in their daily Bible reading & study. The ability to add different study bibles & devotionals into 1 app is truly exceptional.
Te carta study bible 5/5
Once you get the hang of it you can maneuver all over the Bible study notes, etc. These folks did a really good job in putting this app together!
Love the app and what is provides. The capability for specific notes or folders is great. Only improvement item is better instructions for how to share multiple notes at one time. My desire is to "select all" to download all my notes but I can't find instructions to do this, versus selecting each not individually.
Great app! 4/5
By Fair and honest evaluation
I love it!
Very happy with it! 5/5
This Bible app is much more than I originally thought it would be when I first purchased it. And I keep discovering more ways to use it!
It's great for just reading, of course. Easy to search for what book and chapter I want to read and easy reference for topics. Plus here's a bit of the "so much more":
* A verse of the day, daily devotional, and tip of the day. I set these so that I see them when I first open my iPad, so I can read any of them, all of them, or none of them that day.
* Very interesting and helpful charts that teach me things about both the Old and New Testaments.
* Historical and cultural context before each new book in the Bible and, if you would like, a running guide to the chapter and verses that accompany any part of the Bible you are currently reading.
I'm guessing that what I just wrote is already in the description of the app. But I haven't seen that since my purchase. So I'm simply telling you what I've discovered that is so helpful and enriching for me. There are likely more things I have yet to discover. :D
I love this app 5/5
Easy to use and navigate throughout the Bible. I love how easy it is to click on a verse that is referenced in the commentary and immediately be able to read it. It's also great to be able to select a word and get it's definition. Nice commentary as well. The pictures and maps are a great compliment as well.
By Rickett Layne
Definitely worth the money..My favorite app
Awesome App 5/5
By Gotcha girls
This is an amazing app!!!!
Great NIV study bible app 5/5
There are many bible apps, and I have quite a few on my phone, but this one is my favorite. All the options they provide make you feel like you have your Bible open on your lap with pen in hand. I highly recommend this app.
Love this app! 5/5
By Maddie Cintron
I serve in a bilingual church and it's wonderful that the app allows me to have two languages side by side along with notes and other features that are easily accessible and easy to use. All my personal notes, highlights are always there for me to reference and print. I would highly recommend!
