You in God's Word.
God's Word in You.

The power of God's Word,
close at hand.

Every minute of every day, all over the world, people just like you are connecting with each other through the global YouVersion community, sharing encouragement, inspiration, and insight. And if you saw our recent announcement, you already know that the latest update to the Bible App for iOS* brings the power of those relationships…right to your fingertips, on Apple Watch. Most importantly:

When Apple Watch arrives, the Bible App will be there.

That means that when the millions of people who have already bought Apple Watches start looking for apps to try out, they'll find the Bible App.

Use the Bible App to help you remind yourself of what matters most to you with just a glance:

■ Read the Verse of the Day just by looking at your wrist.
■ Know that someone is thinking about you each time you feel that little vibration telling you one of your Friends Liked or Commented on your Bible activity.
■ Any time you think of it, glance to see which verses are trending.
■ Easily jump to your own Verse Images, Bookmarks, and Highlights.

Get It Now

*We recognize that Apple Watch may not be immediately available in all countries and for all users. With the exception of trending Bible verses, you can find these same Bible App features on your iPhone or iPad. But there is only one version of the Bible App for iOS, no matter which Apple device you use. Apple Watch makes your Bible App experience more pleasant by making popular features even easier to get to.

Personalize Your Inspiration:

Choose from your own photos.

Hopefully you've already been enjoying using Verse Images in the Bible App, turning Bible verses into inspirational art that you can share with your community of friends. Today we're pleased to announce that with our newest release, now you can select your own photos as backgrounds for your Verse Images!

  1. On the Choose Images screen, tap the gray image icon in the first square.

  2. Follow the prompts to the photos you already have on your device and select the one you want.

  3. Adjust and crop your image before you add your verse.

Coming Soon

Verse Image is still a brand new feature, so we have more enhancements coming for it soon. For example, on both iOS and Android, soon you'll be able to blur the background and fine-tune the text spacing in your Verse Images.

But the only thing you need to start creating Verse Images with your own backgrounds today is the latest update of the Bible App*.

*Before you can use Verse Images, make sure you have the most current version of the Bible App installed. Some older versions of Android and iOS may not be supported.
