FANTASTIC APP 5/5
I just got this app yesterday, and it is the first app I believe I have ever rated since I’ve been using Apple products since 2012.
It’s an awesome app. It simple, and engaging to be quite frank. It’s easy to comprehend, as I am a visual learners. I really wanted something that would help me grow deeper in my faith! This was super awesome. HISTORY, is important to me, as it helps you understand the contexts in the Bible. And this app does a great job at gettin you to understand backstory.
The best bible app I’ve ever used 5/5
I love this bible app. I use this app daily and I keep one other that has all the Bible’s ever printed that we’re out online. This way I can go back and lookup scripture and how it’s been changed or translated over the generations. This app and the videos that link the Bible stories together help young and old to it only read but tie all of the books of the Bible together. Amazing app! A must get!
Great for any student of the Word 5/5
I thought I’d share my new favorite app - the “Read Scripture” app.
It has partnered with the Bible Project and lays out the text of the Bible in 16 “chapters” and points out the major themes throughout those chapters. I highly recommend this app.
So good 5/5
Accountability, great videos, user friendly and the reading order/timeline is what I needed.
Love this app 5/5
Keep up the good work. It's a great witness tool as well for when others have questions. Thank you for all you do.
Wonderful app 5/5
By Apples 4 Dana
I love the Read Scripture app! The graphics & videos are very helpful in bringing all the pieces together, clearly explaining how each book relates to the next and pointing the entire old and new testaments to Jesus Christ. Gods purpose and story becomes clear... and I believe I will finally read the entire bible, start to finish! Try it, you’ll be hooked and not disappointed
Thank You! 🙌 5/5
Incredible app. I love it so much. Grateful for all the work that has been put into this and that it is nonprofit, that there are no advertisements and paid features. Thanks guys.
Love it but... 2/5
Hey. I really love this app but for some reasons, the videos would not play. It keeps showing a crossed play button and never stops loading. I don’t know what to do, please help!
It’s indescribable 😁😁 5/5
I love it.It really gives u a new experience with the Bible and all it’s about and I just love ❤️ it
Love the videos!!! 5/5
I love this app! The videos are awesome and have really helped me to understand the Bible more.
I just downloaded the app and went through the Introduction and the first day of reading Genesis. I love how user friendly and simple it is to follow, and how they break down the story with animated videos. I can see myself recommending this to youth!
Incredible Tool!!! 5/5
By Tim T2T
I want to reach out to the team at the Bible Project for such an incredible resource. I have tried a number of times to help the boy I mentor understand the Bible better. I had tried a number of approaches, but we stumbled across these videos a few years back at a small group meeting and he immediately asked if we could start watching through them. He was impressed with the quality and art style. I was ecstatic about the content! Thank you so much for this incredible resource. On the suggestion front... I would love to see a dark mode option incorporated into the app. I often use this at night to read scripture before bed and a dark mode setting would really help! Keep up the great work!
Congrats to the developer 5/5
By Raphael Lucas
Amazing work, most beautiful app to read the bible!
Such a blessing! 5/5
By data freq
This app is so wonderful on so many levels! It has allowed me to cultivate the habit of being in the Word daily, which has been mind-blowingly amazing! It has allowed me to understand the content and context of what I am reading. AND it’s free!! Thank you to those who put this app together and work to bless us through it - God is doing a mighty work through you; thank you for following God’s call on your lives.
A few things that would make this app even more wonderful:
- ability to highlight and take notes on the readings
- ability to listen to the daily text in addition to reading it
Family is reading consistently! 5/5
Love the app with the integrated videos! Please add some various reading plan options for next year.
Great app- three minor improvements 4/5
First off, great job! I recommend this app to all. The videos are great, and help me to understand some of the esoteric OT or just the historical content.
Some suggestions for improvements:
1) make a couple of bible translations available. ESV makes the psalms dry as dust.
2)possible audio as well, so if necessary, I can switch from reading to listening in the car.
3)this one is purely speculative, but next year, reading through I would love to the history portion alongside the prophet who spoke to the people in that era.
This app does not try to do it all—instead, it has a laser focus on engaging the reader with the Scriptures through amazing Bible Project videos and a smooth, easy-to-read user interface.
Though it lacks some common Bible app features (highlighting, adding notes, etc), it encourages reading swathes of the Biblical narrative together. This helps the reader make better connections and therefore can better understand God’s heart through the Scriptures.
Now, I use Olive Tree as my Bible study app or quick look-up app. But, when I want to be absorbed in the Scriptures and prayerfully engage with them, Read Scripture is where it’s at!
Thank you guys!!
Also, any updates soon?
One Suggestion 5/5
By ῥ Ρ
This app is amazing. The design is great. I have only one suggestion. I like to read in Koine Greek. Is there anyway Greek and Hebrew could be given as options for the text? I like the app’s simple interface, but if there is a way to keep it simple while adding the ability to quickly switch languages while reading, that would be even more amazing. 6 stars for adding Greek and 7 for adding Greek and Hebrew. =)
Perfect “Easy” way to get into Gods word! 5/5
WOW, it’s here! This app is amazing! Finally an easy way to read the Bible in a year with interactive amazing videos to go along with Gods story! I love The Bible Project! Their work is truly making a difference! I am so thankful for this! God Bless them in all that they are doing! Please get this information out to everyone! I do go back to the YouVersion app so that the reading for the day can be read to me while I follow along in my bible, highlighting. Maybe that can be an update to this app. Have the ability to play the reading by audio. But it’s easy to use the YouVersion app for that if want! Thank you, Thank You for this perfect app. I am full of JOY! No issues at all found with it❣️🥰😍
Keep adding new TBP videos to this app!
Exceptional Bible Apps 5/5
Gosh - I love Francis Chan so anything he is associated with is blessed. I have a good understanding of the Bible but this app brings us into a fantastic top level view of where things have gone off track with Adam and Eve and all God is doing to bring man back the original plan. The graphics are amazing and the storyline is captivating. The Bible comes alive for a new generation. Thank you for such a labor of love. May so many be drawn to this eternal love story of God and man.

I can’t tell you how much I love this app!!!
Great way to read the Bible. I love how daily dates are not given... it truly is like reading a novel. It doesn’t make me feel bad for missing a day. I just pick it up anytime like a good book, but this book is the BEST BOOK EVER!!!! And I love how the Psalms are highlighted as you read!!! ❤️🙏🏻❤️
Great Way to Read the Entire Bible That Holds Your Interest 5/5
I began watching The Bible Project videos a couple of years ago and absolutely love them. But Bible study in an organized way has always been a challenge for me. So many translations, should I use a book or software. How will I stay on track?
The ReadScripture app on my iPad does this. It begins with a short video that gives me a visual while I am reading the daily passages. It reminds you through visual cues to stop and breath between each section of the daily assignment. And then, it separates the Psalms passage for the day in a different font and background.
Reminders can be set through this app to your telephone or watch.
This is an eye-appealing and fun way to read the Bible. Well done Bible Project team !!
GREAT app, AMAZING videos, POOR arrangement! 4/5
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this app!! The videos are absolutely AMAZING and are so incredibly helpful. I have been studying the Bible, in and out of formal theological training, for many years, and I learned many things through the videos. However, I’m only able to give it 4 ⭐️ for two, what I consider to be somewhat major, shortcomings. First, you are unable to copy, highlight, or make notes about any texts that you find impactful as you read and study. This was very disappointing, and limits the app to just being useful for straight reading, not meditating on the Word. Second, and perhaps more annoying, the arrangement of readings for each day were usually fine, but occasionally it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever! The worst one I found was after reading two short chapters of Malachi on back to back days, you’re then hammered with the first TEN chapters of 1 Chronicles the next day. I like the idea of putting Chronicles at the end of the OT, but was it really necessary to schedule TEN chapters with 40 to 80 verses per chapter all in the same day? I found several places throughout the reading plan similar to this. Very short reading days followed by very long reading days. It makes for a much more fluid devotional time when the daily reading takes at least somewhere close to the same amount of time each day. I almost quit and switched to a different reading plan after 1 Chronicles. I would recommend this plan, and especially the videos to everyone, but I’ll be sure to look ahead IF I ever use it again, and divide up the daily reading volume a bit more evenly from day to day.

Por favor necesito que su app le pongan en idioma español, me sería muy util
The Bible Project! 5/5
By Sgt Patrick
This is the best app to read through and explore the Bible in a year! The Bible Project videos are incredible. The best resource for new and mature Christians alike.
By Remove this please
I LOVE this app!
The videos are so helpful! 😊❤️
They give you a mini summary of what each book is about! Very helpful!
It changed my reading... 5/5
The ReadScripture App is awesome. I am excitedly reading more than I have before. I used to struggle to get through a few chapters, now I’m not wanting to stop reading.
No KJV. 2/5
By Zom Betant
I really enjoy the idea behind this app. The illustrations and videos are great in keeping with the big picture and themes throughout the books. The biggest and only complaint I have is that it’s in ESV. When it comes to accurate verse translation ESV simply falls short. I have massive respect for Francis Chan and The Bible Project but I believe they are doing a disservice by choosing this version.
Feature Requests 5/5
#1 I’m using YouVersion bible and the Bible Project plan in that app because I like to listen while I read along. I prefer this app though so it would be really nice to have it in here also.
#2 for fun: Apple Watch app with audio only- with Siri Face support and complication with ‘ring’ that can be closed. 🙂
This is by far the best bible app ever
PS: My favorite videos are the Bible project series on YouTube
This app makes reading through the Bible easy and exciting! I love the videos interspersed throughout, providing overall vision, theme, or tying things together that I might not catch on my own. I’ve set the app’s daily reminder to read, but I love that it doesn’t make me feel like I’ve “failed” if I miss a day. There are no dates on the daily readings, it just lists what’s next. I love the app and all the creativity put into it!
The Bible reading app I’ve been waiting for 5/5
By KE Creative
The videos interspersed with the Scripture reading are amazing and add a rich context that doesn’t overshadow the Word, but assists my understanding of it. I’ve been reading the Bible for 29 years or so and it’s never been quite like this.
Excellent Work 5/5
The team that developed this app have truly been inspired by God.
I really appreciate the insight of the videos and the inspiration and flow of the Psalms that close the daily reading.
Thank you Randy
So Good 5/5
I love this app and all the resources from thebibleproject.com. Thank you for making it easy to study the Word. Psalms paired with readings is such a great idea.
Videos are blocked in my country 1/5
I assume you are using Vimeo but please dont. Indonesia blocks Vimeo, so we cannot watch your videos. All these times, we watch Bible Projects from youtube.
By kawaii kween🥰
I love bible project and now it’s so easy to view the Read Scripture videos. They take it it a step further to summarize the Bible!🥰🤩😍
Videos won’t play 3/5
Just downloaded and the videos won’t play. I’ve not been able to figure out why. Just says “unable to load, check your connection” but no problem with connection, settings, etc. I reinstalled and still not working.
Love this 5/5
Helped me understand the Bible so much more!
The videos are really helpful! 5/5
The videos that introduce the books and topics are engaging and help me see the big picture of the Bible, book or topic.
The only feature that would make the app better is if it also read the scriptures to you while you follow along. There are many people who have reading disabilities, and having it read to them would greatly enhance their ability to understand and retain the Word. It would also make it more likely that they wouldn’t quit.
Needs to add the more recent videos 3/5
The app is missing tons of new videos that the Bible Project has made by now. Please add the new videos :)
Great app concept though
Incredible! Love it! 5/5
This is one of the best Bible apps I’ve used, and I’ve tried many! The best part are the videos! It so clearly explains what you’re about to read in a very entertaining way! They really get me excited to read each book!
Best bible reading app 5/5
By Born Again Shepherd
The bible can be long, complex, and intimidating, but this app does a fantastic job of breaking it all down so it’s easy to understand and read at a reasonable pace. Highly recommended!
ReadScripture app is the best 5/5
By Samuel Finnegan
I finally found something to help me read the Bible, this is the best bible app I have seen. Thank you so much! I will be reading the whole bible by the end of the year.
Wonderful resource for Bible study! 5/5
By Nenee bowie
Great appreciation for this valuable teaching tool to help us journey through our Bible study and understanding of God’s Word. All the best to the Bible Project Group for your offering of amazing gifts. Perfect for readers young and old.
Love having videos paired with the Scriptures! 5/5
This app is awesome. The Bible Project has so many incredible video resources and I love having them paired up alongside the appropriate passages. Using this app has really helped bring passages to life and give me a better understanding of what’s taking place. Highly recommend this as a way to ready the Bible more consistently and with better understanding!
Best Bible reading app 5/5
Very well done. Good for reading not study.
Understand what you’re reading 5/5
By P. Tiburon
I’ve read the entire bible three times and with this app and the accompanying videos I’m now really able to understand the entire story arc in a new more complete way. Highly recommend!
Best Bible reading app! 5/5
I’ve used more bible reading plans and apps over the years than I can count. Any method that gets a person into a routine of reading the Word is great, but this one is by far my favorite. Every little detail has been a blessing to me, down to the reminder at the beginning of each reading to take a deep breath. It reminds me to pause, be still, rest, and be reverent, instead of treating the daily reading like a task or chore. I love that there is a psalm as well as a sequential reading for each day. It’s also wonderful to have the plan not attached to calendar dates. It keeps me from feeling guilty or overwhelmed (both of which often convince me to just give up on a plan altogether) if I fall behind. Sometimes I need a day away from the plan because I feel led to study something else, and I appreciate that it doesn’t leave me feeling like I need to “catch up.” The videos have been a great source of insight, too! Love this app.
Love the format, using the Bible project videos for supplemental material and background is extremely helpful!
