Phenomenal Bible App!!!

I have been using this app for several years now, and I absolutely love it! This is so easy to use, and it has lots of great features. You can choose from multiple ways to navigate, and, no matter which way you choose, you will be able to quickly access whatever Bible verse you want. Also, you can highlight scriptures in four different colors, underline passages, and create margin notes, bookmarks and general notes.

Through in app purchases, you can access several different translations of the Bible like the ASV, Amplified Bible, ESV, KJV, NKJV, NIV and many more. You can also view two versions side by side for easy study. Additionally, other in app purchases include study bibles, commentaries, devotional bibles, one year devotionals, once a day devotionals, Spanish language versions, and audio bibles. I really like all the features that the study bibles offer, which can include book introductions, articles, maps, charts, diagrams, profiles, architectural drawings, master index, concordance, references, and study notes. These features can also be viewed whole width or right alongside the scriptures.

I would recommend Tecarta Bible to anybody! If you try it, I’m certain that you will be just as pleased with it as I am.


My Personal Library In My Pocket

Being a novice at 65 in the world that runs mostly on apps I downloaded the Tecarta Bible App recommended by my wife. So my adventure began. I kind got used to getting the word of the day and I began to explore the app. I live in a mountain so I love the outdoors. I go hiking, cycling and kayaking. I used these activities to renew my mind and the goal is to be in solitude with the Lord. In the past I would bring in my backpack a Bible and a journal. So when I ran into a verse that I did not understand I would write it down and wait to I got home to study my commentaries. With the Tecarta Bible App I have my library in my phone. So when I find that spot deep in the woods. I open my phone and the Tecarta Bible App and it is like sitting in my home office studying the Word of God. I have different Bible versions, the best commentaries, dictionaries and all kinds of devotionals. I can minister to many souls that the Lord sends to me by social media anywhere I am. They bombard me with all kinds of questions and I can be in my kayak in the middle of a lake and use all the resources available in the Tecarta Bible App. In fact, I am writing this review sitting on my deck driving my coffee watching the forest wake up. 😉👍🏻

Simple to use, yet profoundly helpful

I have tried many Bible apps, even sophisticated, expensive laptop ones, but Tecarta is by far the easiest one I have used to organize notes. I like to take notes when I read, and Tecarta’s system of folders and notes makes it easy to be as detailed or simple as you want. The ability to place a note right alongside the verse is wonderful. It is also great to have the ability to place notes in folders and folders within folders, i.e. a folder on Jesus Christ with sub folders on His birth and early life, His parables, His death and resurrection, etc. Or having a folder for each book of the Bible with separate notes each chapter. The possibilities are endless. It is also nice to be able to highlight or underline verses or portions of verses, or to bookmark verses for placement within folders. Helpful, too, is the ability to insert selected Bible verses within a note. It is nice to be able to sample Bible versions or books before purchasing them, and their prices are more reasonable than those of many other apps, especially when they are on sale. It is one of the few apps I use every day. I love it.
