Literal Word exists to promote the word of God and not much else. No ads. No articles. No distractions. Simply the Word. We believe that the Bible contains the most important information that anyone could ever come across and that accessing it should be as easy as possible.

This belief has driven every decision we've made designing Literal Word. The app is 100% free and functional even when you're offline. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) translation was selected for faithfully utilizing a word-for-word instead of a thought-for-thought translation method. Each passage of the Bible is clean, customizable, and convenient to access, allowing the reader to focus exclusively on the God-breathed content. Word searches are simple but powerful, featuring a unique visual interface for organizing results with precision, and complete lexicons for original Hebrew and Greek words can be viewed with just a couple taps.

It all comes down to the idea that a straightforward approach to a NASB Bible app maximizes attention to the word of God.

Great app for Bible Study!

This is a wonderful app for Bible study! Not long ago I bought the Strongs NASB app, but after seeing Literal Word, I wish I had waited a bit. If you like the Hebrew-Greek Keyword Study Bible, you will love this app. It uses an abridged version of the Brown-Driver-Briggs lexicon. The Strong’s numbers are listed, along with every scripture that uses that word. For future development, I would like to see the lexicon as a toggle in the settings so I can keep it on all the time. (Currently, you have to turn it on for each use.) I would also like to see some Bible reading plan options included, as I use another Bible app just to see my daily reading. It would be nice to already have this feature built in. But this is a really new app ...and what a great start for a first version! Big Kudos to the developer!

Phenomenal Bible App!

Talk about a true ministry! These “three sinners saved by grace” have blessed us with a powerful tool to access the Word that’s amazingly easy to use! And it’s built around the absolute best English Bible translation available - the 1995 New American Standard Bible! As a pastor, I’ve recommended this app to my congregation, & despite having an extensive Accordance library, find myself using the Literal Word app more & more - becoming my go-to Bible app! This app is simply a gift to those who hunger for the Word, & brings together the best Bible translation with powerful tools for digging into the text. My highest recommendation & deepest thanks! May our Abba Father & our Lord Jesus pour out blessings on you for this precious gift! Doc

Wow!! I am blown away!

I rarely write reviews for apps, but this was necessary. If you are serious student of the Bible this is a must-have app. It beautifully lays out the Scriptures and very quickly allows you to see the original word. You are able to browse through to find the right verse very quickly and easily see every use of that word in the Scriptures. Fantastic app! The only slight suggestion I would have is to change the app icon. It looks a little dated. Other than that everything is incredible. As a matter of fact because of the icon I half expected to open the app and see a clunky interface. Not the case at all. Great great job!

Thanks for the feedback! We have updated the icon.
