Dwell has been called "the Spotify of Scripture" because of how easy (and delightful!) we've made it to explore the Bible.

What’s New

Version 1.5

** Dwell Mode**
Introducing Dwell Mode: a new feature that allows you to go deeper with Scripture through repetition and reflection.

Dwell Mode gives you the ability to repeat just about anything you listen to inside the app. That means a passage of the Bible, a chapter, playlist, plan, or even your entire queue can be looped in order to meditate on or memorize it.

At the same time, Dwell Mode also lets you add quiet moments of reflection in between whatever you repeat. Control the time between each repetition by adding 3, 10, 30, or 60 seconds between each hearing.

We're hoping Dwell Mode will make Scripture memorization easier than ever before. Our vision from the beginning has centered on helping you soak in Scripture—to truly dwell in it, wherever you are. With the release of Dwell Mode, we're moving closer to realizing that vision.

** Listening Plan Improvements **
Now you can manually toggle the completed status of a day by tapping on the checkbox. And plans now ask for confirmation before cancelling.

** Accessibility Improvements **
Expanded and improved support for Voiceover and Dynamic text throughout the app

Dwell is the app I never knew I needed!

I read my Bible daily, but this app. I’ve LOVED being able to listed to my bible aloud. There are people in the Bible whose stories I’ve never much thought about, but hearing their stories read aloud has brought me to tears. Hearing the Bible was the only way the Hebrews and early Christian Church were exposed to the Bible. This app brings a little bit of that back to us and allows us to listen as they would have.

This app has four voices to choose from. The graphics are beautiful. They have plans and playlists if you don’t know where to start. They have made long listen stories and passages like “Abraham’s Story” “psalm 119” and others you can choose to listen to if you find a block of time and can listen. They also have short listen passages for the time crunch. And if you like listening from start to finish, they have a library with every book of the New Testament and they are actively working on finishing up the Old Testament (currently there are 7 books: genesis, exodus, 1,2 Samuel, psalms, proverbs and Ecclesiastes).

This app is so well done and I am thrilled with how it’s turned out!

What an incredible app!!!

This is a truly amazing app! I have always struggled with getting into the word daily and this app transformed my life! Through this app I have been given a love for the word of God! I always enjoyed listening to God’s word but I always found the voices to be robotic and male. Having a female voice is so comforting because it sounds more like my own thoughts. I also just listened to the Jesus’s parables playlist and it was lovely to hear and meditate and Jesus’s words. Thank you so much for this wonderful app!

One suggestion that I would have is when you are listening to a plan or a playlist that is reading from multiple places in Scripture having a pause between those different passages or maybe reading the reference before hand. I have found that it is difficult to decipher when one passage ends and the next begins. Also I would love if it was possible to download audio. It would be awesome if I could listen to it on the plane. Also the premium version was quite pricey but a price I am more then willing to pay. Again thank you so much for this app!

Super Great App! 😃

Have had the Dwell app for a few months now and have been enjoying it immensely! I tried out the various options with the music and voices and found that I enjoy them all, but especially enjoy the default settings.
I appreciate how they have it easily set up the have a Bible portion of the day, rather than just a verse and have it set so I can have a reminder each morning where I can just swipe and go straight there first thing when I wake up. 😊
I also like how they have various study sections, reading plans, and even short portions set aside that you can listen to if you don’t have a lot of time.

The only thing I would add to the app if I could is having the Word present in a written form as well when you’re listening to it, so you could follow along if you desired to. I figure this would probably slow down the app a bit, and is probably why they had chosen not to do so. I resolve it by having an additional Bible app that I can easily go to, since I can listen to Dwell and be in whatever other app I desire at the same time- which is super nice. 😊
