“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 17 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!

I’m surprised how much I like the Dwell app. It has quickly become part of my daily life. From listening to stories in the car with my kids, playlists as I hang the washing and psalms in quiet moments. I love getting to listen to different voices, the music in the background isn’t intrusive and I’m surprised how much I appreciate the “topic” playlists (eg all Jesus parables) when I typically just take a book at a time.
My only surprise is that there’s no timer to automatically switch off - although there very well could be this feature and I’m not observant enough!!
