Great Free Bible Reader - Plus price drop on NIV
The One Tree Bible Reader is one of the better Bible readers in the app store. It is free and comes with a couple of free public domain Bibles. It is extremely fast at verse look ups assisted by the fact that the bibles aer stored on the device. It also has a rather nice search facility. The interface is clean and straightforward with a short learning period.
Of course - as with most bibles you have to pay for version that are still under copyright. This is understandable since it costs a lot of money to pay for first class translators to provide an accurate and up-to-date translation. One of the more expensive translations has been the NIV, so much so that some of the most popular computer based bible programs have omitted it from time to time.
The good news is that the price of the NIV has just dropped and is now AU$15, still quite expensive but less than half of the original release price which is has maintained until May the 8th. The last price drop today has made it much better value for money.
My Rating: 5 stars
