"The most interactive, exhaustive, easy to use, and thorough Bible Map app in the app store."
The Bible comes to life as you see the land of the Bible and realize the artifacts we have today supporting the story of the Bible.
Addition of several historical photos from Library of Congress, Jordan and Israel's National Photo Archives. Getting close to having images on the ground for every location mentioned in the Bible.
This is also a major update for the code base of the app. It's now using the most updated version of Apple's development code.

It Will Change Your Life and Perspective
I've had this App for bout 2 years now and it has changed the way I view everything narrative in the Bible..it gives you so much better understanding of context and logistics making the Bible real and come alive. For Instance, did you know that Abraham brought Isaac to what is known as today at the very site of the dome of the Rock and was also where the Temples were located..it just makes you connect the past present and future..and a big thumbs up to the developers who updated it to have a parallel scripture option to click the location right on the text...saves you the time of looking everything up (can't figure out how to manually search for a location any more) guess it would be nice to have both options on the iPad). I can still search manually on my iPhone 4s but hey no complaints really really love this App!!!!
Thanks for fixing the pictures. I want to say that I have been showing this app with all my instructors at school and they are looking into it more. There is one instructor that works for Christian evidence bible passages, and he started to use the app apart from his class. Since then he noticed some things are not that accurate because no one really knows where the upper room is an all or that but it's a good idea. If that makes sense.
Developer Response ,
I apologize for the pictures not loading. There were a couple days in February where the app was broken until we updated a setting with our cloud provider for the pictures. I am pleased to let you know the 6,000+ pictures are all loading again. Regarding the settings, yes, this is something we noticed recently. We are hoping the next update will restore that functionality. Thank you for taking the time to write in.
Good; minor complaints
I downloaded this about 4 months ago, when I began a daily geographical study of God’s Word. It’s been a fascinating study, and this app has helped considerably. It’s not always 100% accurate, though, consider for example the location of Mount Sinai. As always, one must use common, logical sense and careful read what the Bible says if they are to learn the truth. You can’t always count on apps to do everything for you. But I really like how the biblical locations are superimposed over modern maps. Like others have commented, an outline of the ancient city/country would be superior to a simple pin, though I realize not all ancient geographic borders are currently known.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
