The Online Bible was developed as a Windows program several decades ago and now has users in a large number and countries. At the time it was first started the name Online Bible was chosen, when internet was not used as it is today. The name is therefore somewhat misleading as it is specifically intended to also use off-line. 

With the move to mobile devices it became apparent that the Online Bible would also have to be available on other devices, and in 2014 Cross Link Services developed  an app specifically for Android (both phone and tablet) devices. Since then the app has been enhanced considerably, and new features are added at regular intervals. The current version of the app requires Android 5 or higher. If you have Android version 4.3 and 4.4 automatically an older version of the Online Bible will be installed which is compatible with this Android version.

The app can be downloaded from the Google Playstore. Please note, the app is not available in the Amazon Appstore.

The app installs with a number of standard translations, some commentaries, a Greek and Hebrew lexicon (to use with Strong numbers) and more. Within the app there is a store to purchase more titles. 

Before you can visit the store the app requires you to create an account. This has the advantage that any purchases you make can be exchanged with other Online Bible apps (iOS and Mac). You can only exchange purchases with Windows if you are a Premium User. Refer the following article: An Online Bible Account   

Further information about the use of the software is available under the relevant subjects in the rest of this Knowledge Base. If you are fairly new to the app, you could read this first: Getting started in Android and iOS

Should you miss specific functionality in the app, please let us know. We cannot guarantee that it will be added, but we track which features are favourite.
