Strong's Concordance, is a concordance of the King James Bible (KJV) that was constructed under the direction of Dr. James Strong (1822–1894) and first published in 1890.
A concordance lets the reader directly compare how the same word may be used else where in the Bible. In this way the Strong's Concordance provides an independent check against translations, and offers an opportunity for greater, and more technically accurate understanding of the Bible text.
Want to see it in action before you buy? Try Strong's Concordance Lite which provides a 100% functional demo of Matthew and Genesis.
This program does not require internet access, everything you need is all stored on the iDevice.
* Search for English words, and lookup Greek/Hebrew dictionaries.
* Proper concordance, listing how the word was translated in other bible verses.
* Full King James Text is included
* Click on any blue word for concordance text.
* Night mode for those that like to read at night (White on black)
* iPad support
Please note: This version is not an "exhaustive" concordance, and does skip smaller words such as "and, or, the, a" as well as some other words. Though we think you'll find it has most (if not all) the words you'll ever need.
We're open to suggestions for improvement in future versions. Send comments and suggestions to strongs at orionsys.org.

A brand new interface is coming later this year. Stay tuned.
Ratings and Reviews
Good app overall
I like this app, but I can't figure out why they can't fix the problem with the bad cites. This glitch has been around for several updates and has still not been fixed. They do include the correct reference as well, but they have not removed the bad ones. The current situation would be fine as a short term work around, but not as a permanent fix. I sometimes find it easier to go to eSword.
Go-To App for Bible Study
If you could only have one app for Bible study, this one would be it. It not only helps you understand the meaning of the specific words, but also the shades of meaning as the word is used in other verses. Then it gives a list of the verses where the word is used, for quick comparison.
One suggestion I would make for the developers: in the next release, include an “About” or information icon, that briefly explains how to navigate in the app and the meaning of the symbols used, such as what the X means in the Concordance section.
Great! Please add...
I really like the app. I would like to see the numbers in the definitions (like "from 570") to be clickable so you can follow through. Also reverse search by strong's number. Also a "back" option for history to previous strong's lookups and for previously read passages. Copy and paste would be great too, for those of us that write bible studies.
Otherwise, great job!!
UPDATE: Getting ready to write a request and I see that almost everything I requested is now a function that I regularly and instinctively enjoy! Thanks!!
One thing that I seem to remember, but has changed of late, is that when performing a search, the screen used to go straight to the searched verse, but now, it jumps to the correct chapter, but to verse 1. Is that a glitch?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
