The Legacy Standard Bible is available as a smartphone app for free!
The Legacy Standard Bible (LSB) is a translation that—at its core—seeks to be a window into the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. By translating individual words as consistently as possible within their various nuances, it allows the reader to discern what God originally wrote and know the author's intent. In this way, the LSB seeks to be an improvement upon the NASB, while simultaneously preserving its faithful legacy.
The LSB smartphone app features:
● The complete New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs
● Brown-Driver-Briggs (abridged version) for Hebrew word definition
● Abbott-Smith for Greek word definition
● Search capability by lexical word

● Copy As No Superscript didn’t actually strip superscripts.
● Other minor performance enhancements.
Ratings and Reviews
There’s always a challenge between taking the time to develop a good app and in getting it out to late or to soon. In this case, I’m happy to have access to the app but I think it was released to soon. The app registration doesn’t work. The copy and paste copies the verse footnote letters but not the verse reference. It has crashed on me several times since I downloaded it. The setting don’t actually seem to change anything even after changing the views. I’m sure y’all will keep working hard to make the app better. Thanks for your work thus far. As I see changes, of course I’ll change the star rating.
My favorite Bible app
Tecarta used to be my favorite, followed by Logos. Now by God’s grace this is the app I tend to reach for. Logos sometimes takes multiple swipes to turn the page. Tecarta works great but displays a page turn animation whenever you swipe. This app has elegant simplicity. Just a the text and tiny unobtrusive reference at the top that you don’t notice unless you look for it. Finally the LSB text is amazing. I would love it in a nice opaque-page large print Cambridge Cameo with wide margins rather than references.
A Wonderful, Faithful Translation
I have been using the LSB for about a week now and love it. It is very similar to the NASB but includes some changes that I believe make it even better than the wonderful NASB. I am so thankful that there is now an app and am also thankful for the hardworking men who have done such an incredible job faithfully translating God’s sufficient, infallible, inerrant, and GLORIOUS Word!
