Literal Word exists to promote the word of God and not much else. No ads. No articles. No distractions. Simply the Word. We believe that the Bible contains the most important information that anyone could ever come across and that accessing it should be as easy as possible.

This belief has driven every decision we've made designing Literal Word. The app is 100% free and functional even when you're offline. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) translation was selected for faithfully utilizing a word-for-word instead of a thought-for-thought translation method. Each passage of the Bible is clean, customizable, and convenient to access, allowing the reader to focus exclusively on the God-breathed content. Word searches are simple but powerful, featuring a unique visual interface for organizing results with precision, and complete lexicons for original Hebrew and Greek words can be viewed with just a couple taps.

It all comes down to the idea that a straightforward approach to a NASB Bible app maximizes attention to the word of God.

Thank you

Easy to navigate, Hebrew & Greek Lexicon, integrated dictionary, search function is excellent. Love that God’s Word is caps in NT and Jesus’ Word is Red. Love the options in this app. Simple, robust, many options / features. Thank you for providing us access to this app for free. I’ve used many Bible apps and this is the absolute best, exactly what I needed. I have ESV & KJV in print, so this digital NASB is perfect for my referencing needs. Pastor at my local congregation suggested I add NASB to my Bible Collection for in-depth study. Amen, developers! Thank you again for making this app. The time of Revelations is here, we need to spread the Gospel now more than ever before. Please keep this free. Please keep it without ads. We need Jesus and this is the best app version of the Bible yet. Glory to God for access to His Word in our pocket, digitally, instant cross referencing, categories of notes. So thankful. Amen. Blood of Jesus protect us all. Praise Almighty Father, Your Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

This is a wonderful app that allows you to focus on just reading God’s Word—no distractions, no ads. Yet at the same time, you are able to sync your notes between platforms, are provided with Greek word meanings, and have cross-references—all of which fade nicely into the background. I tend to paste in notes from other sources (Kindle, Internet, PDFs), and it is great to have them in one place.

One feature I *really* hope is added soon is the ability to name what your different highlight colors mean. For example title blue notes as Baptism, green for Salvation, and so on. It would also be good to have just a few more highlight color options for the many people that categorize their Bible notes in this way. Keep up the great work, and God bless you!

Great app for Bible Study!

This is a wonderful app for Bible study! Not long ago I bought the Strongs NASB app, but after seeing Literal Word, I wish I had waited a bit. If you like the Hebrew-Greek Keyword Study Bible, you will love this app. It uses an abridged version of the Brown-Driver-Briggs lexicon. The Strong’s numbers are listed, along with every scripture that uses that word. For future development, I would like to see the lexicon as a toggle in the settings so I can keep it on all the time. (Currently, you have to turn it on for each use.) I would also like to see some Bible reading plan options included, as I use another Bible app just to see my daily reading. It would be nice to already have this feature built in. But this is a really new app ...and what a great start for a first version! Big Kudos to the developer!
