I've written 5 parts to my review of the YouVersion app and haven't yet talked about reading the Bible! That's always the danger... getting so involved in the technology about the Bible that we forget to actually read the Bible. Duh! Let's correct that today.
The YouVersion app has a remarkably intuitive reading interface. I use the Android version on my phone (pictured on the left) as well as the iPad version. Each different version of the app has a slightly different way of going about this same function. I'll describe the Android app here. However everything I will talk about here will be available to you also, even if you don't use the Android operating system.
When you first click on the Bible app icon, YouVersion opens to its main menu. The first thing you'll see is "Bible" in the top left hand corner of the main menu. Click on the Bible icon and you'll see a screen that looks like the one on the left.
Along the top of the Bible Reader, you'll see three things: a drop down box on the top left-hand corner, the book of the Bible and chapter that you're currently reading, and your current version of the Bible in the top right-hand corner. Tap on any of these three menu items to change them. Let's talk about each one individually.
