If you have a mobile device YouVersion is a must have.  I have tried several other Bible apps and this have been the best for the price.  If you are looking for a hard core study tool I would ask you to research Logos…but that is not why I am writing.  There are a ton of Bible translations that you can download in YouVersion and a handfull that are only available while your mobile device is online.  Today through January 21 you are able to download the NIV which is rarly available for download (they have allowed users to do this a few times in the past).

Why is this a big deal? Well, if you have Wi-Fi or data service everywhere you use your YouVersion Bible it’s probably not a huge benefit but for the rare times when Wi-Fi is or cell service is not available and you want to access your NIV it’s good to have it downloaded. Checkout YouVersion’s “Bible” on your mobile device today.

P.S. The NIV is also available for download in the Bible Gateway mobile app.  Click Here.

Thanks Bill Ver Velde for the heads up!

  1. Just a note the NIV on Bible Gateway is for iOS devices only.

  3. Hi Brandon and Bill. Biblegateway appeared to only be offering the download until Jan 21st. Another place you can download a copy to your device is http://www.houseandhome.org/niv-bible-download. It’s in mp3 format so doesn’t work as well for study. But at least it’s accessible. Blessings.
