“One of my favorite apps out there. Another way to immerse myself in God’s word.”
– Matt Chandler

“I can’t begin to rave enough about Dwell and how formational it is.”
– Ann Voskamp


Dwell is the best way to listen to the Bible, with 20+ different voice options and 12 different versions so far!

Read Along
See and hear the Bible like never before with Dwell’s Read Along experience. Follow the text of Scripture as it scrolls down the screen, synchronized to the narrator’s voice.

Reading the Bible on your phone has never been more enjoyable. You can fully tailor your Read experience, with tastefully curated themes, fonts, and more!

Fall asleep to the word of God being read over. As we sleep, we are reminded that we are dependent creatures. The Lord renews and sustains us as we learn to rest in him.

Meditation on Scripture is medicine that heals our inattentiveness and awakens in us a longing for God. Use Dwell’s Repeat and Reflect feature to meditate on God’s word.

Memorizing Scripture is key to an abiding life with Christ. Move the Word of God from the screen deep into your heart using Dwell’s Repeat and Reflect feature.

Build a Habit
Growth in Christ does not happen by accident. This way of life must be intentionally cultivated daily. Use any of Dwell’s 75+ listening plans (+notifications) to stay rooted in Scripture.

Hands down the best audio Bible!

If you’re looking for an awesome audio Bible, which also has the digital Bible fully integrated, then look no further!

Dwell offers their own plans and playlists, and you can make your own playlists also. The repeat function can be for one verse, whole chapters or playlists! That feature is awesome.

You can read the scripture as you listen, which is great for really taking it in, or for those ‘what?!’ moments, when you have to go back and read it again!

You can access the digital Bible with a swipe of the finger, and I often use that to read all the scriptures in the audio playlists as one text. That to me is very handy for reflection!

There’s no chapters/book names announced as you listen, so you can listen seamlessly through all the books. The ability to speed up, or slow down each narrators voice has been so handy! There’s a variety of background music, and you can equalize all the sound elements to suit your preference.

There’s also a sleep timer, which is fabulous to get in a bit of the word before sleep.

All in all, this is an amazing resource and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone who regularly uses an audio Bible or would like to. Download the app and use the free features first, and you’ll soon see that you need this app on your devices!!

God bless you. :)

Developer Response ,

Wow! I'm speechless. This is such a thorough review. Thank you for taking the time to explain in detail how you use the app and why you love it! It means so much to us, truly. Grateful to read how God is using this app in your life!

Absolute Wow!

I’m impressed with this app so far.
I like the voices. I love the pace. I always found other narrated bibles too quick. I’m the kind of reader who isn’t in a rush as I read. I like to be at a pace to really think it over as I go. I also really like the music options, and all the various plans and arrangements to listen through. I’ve listened to audio Bibles my whole life, and this is a fresh approach to it.

One thing would be neat, if I could download everything, rather than stream.
I don’t have a lot of data, and I have no home internet. If I were able to download, it’d make it better. $43-ish for a year in Australia is fine with me, and I expect it will bring continued support and updates for this superb app. I will be listening to this as much as I can! Dependant on my data allowance that is. Good job Dwell App!

Loving the bible.

I’ve only just started using dwell and have discovered a bible plan suited to my needs. I love it it motivates me and plans it all out for me which is what I needed. Having it all planned out in steps for me to work through and giving me the time it will take each step stops me from being overwhelmed and keeps me on track to read / listen to it in a year. I know what I have to do each day which is great and the way it’s all done with the choice of voices to listen to and the option to read along while listening is great.

Developer Response ,

I love the title of your review. I'm so grateful Dwell is allowing you to truly love God's word!

So glad you have found our plans to be helpful and motivating - and that you are also enjoying those who have recorded scripture for us. They, too, love the Word and it definitely comes across in their reading.

Appreciate you taking the time to write these encouraging words!
