Wonderful tool for discipleship

There are so many positive things I could say about Dwell but a top three would be the following: First, Dwell is an app that has something to offer everyone. Whether you are just beginning a rhythm of regular Bible reading or are a lifelong Christian who desires a new, beautiful and accessible way to engage scripture, Dwell’s myriad reading plans, translations, devotional series, and interactive features (e.g., memorization mode, playback speed, read along, etc.) allow one to tailor the app to their individual needs. Second, Dwell is always evolving to become a better, fuller Bible reading experience. The recent update which implemented the “read along” feature changed the game. I used to need to grab my Bible, make sure it was the right translation, and then follow along that way. But now, I can listen and read along all in the app. I trust that the Dwell team will only keep revising and improving the app experience. Third, and most importantly, it is so evident that the Dwell team’s motivation for creating this app is that they love the Lord and, by way of this app, they want to enable and foster a love of Bible reading in others. The result is a wonderful tool of discipleship that is always improving and accessible to all people regardless of where they are in their journey of faith. I love this app so much, I can’t recommend it highly enough!

Innovative, Quality App

The Narrators are very good, they don’t over-do the reading, and they are smooth, consistent, and clear. The Dwell mode (repeating a chapter, book, or playlist) is probably my favorite feature as it allows you to really focus on a particular portion of Scripture for study, contemplation, or memorization. The pre-set playlists also set this app apart, as there are selections with messianic Psalms, or with only Psalms written by David, or with a compilation of Jesus’ parables. I don’t know if any other apps that offer these features, or that execute it so well. I also enjoy the yearly reading plan options with the choice of going straight through the Bible (Genesis through Revelation), or a mixture of Old and New Testament readings, and also the option of doing a seven day a week or a five day a week plan. All in all, I rate this app five stars.

One suggestion that I have is that the developers made a reader option with all of the readers together almost like a dramatized version, but just switch to the female voice when a woman is speaking and switching between the male narrators during conversion. This would require no extra recording, only re-editing and re-arranging when certain voices are heard. This feature in other apps helps me to follow historical stories more easily and it holds my attention better than the traditional single-reader style.

The Best!

Dwell is my favorite app for listening to Scripture. I am still learning about it and there are features that are not quite as easy to find each time I open the app but it remains my favorite for several reasons: 1. Preferences - ability to choose a translation, a voice, and background music or sound, 2. The reader does not stop with one chapter (at least in the Psalms) but continues to the next in sequence. This has been such a helpful tool for falling asleep peacefully. 3. Anglican daily readings, 4. Reading/study plans - while I haven’t explored these yet, I appreciate the variety of options. I’ve tried other apps and some did not have options for voices (especially diverse voices from around the world) while others were just too overwhelming with flashy home pages full of such a variety, it was more difficult to navigate. This app has helped me through a very traumatic experience. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an app that helps you grow as a believer but especially those who have experienced trauma or loss and need help to remain grounded. Dwell is simple, yet offers tremendous comfort and healing. The cost is reasonable and a free trial is offered.

Wow - thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review.

I am so humbled to read that God has allowed Dwell to be used to bring your life comfort. Grateful you are beginning to heal - God's peace over you!
