I finally joined the age of mobile technology when I got an iPhone a couple of weeks ago.
Honestly I didn’t really have a big desire to have one, but now that I do, I can see why they are so popular.
As I’m still learning to navigate my way around it and how to use all the tools and apps freely available I can only imagine how my habits will change over the next twelve months.
One of the first things I did was find a digital version of the Bible so that I could take it with me. A friend of mine recommended checking out YouVersion. I thought it was great because I was considering getting additional translations of the Bible for my daily reading, but by simply downloading the YouVersion app I automatically got all those translations for free. Of course this saves me money, but it’s also a heck-of-a-lot more portable than carrying fifteen Bibles around with me.
So yeah, I think it’s a pretty cool app, and shows that Smartphone technology can be used for more than just entertainment and diversion.
I did a big of digging and found this infographic outlining the trend of how more and more users are downloading and reading the Bible by using YouVersion.

There’s no way to tell how this availability of the written word will affect the course of human behavior, but surely it has to have some kind of impact. As more and more people continue to read it regularly it will surely change the way they behave and live.
I would be more than interested to know what countries this app is being used the most. It seems to me that it would be an obvious indicator of that region’s hunger for God.
While I use the iPhone, I know not everyone does. Tell me what Smartphone technology you use, and what Bible apps you recommend in the comments section below. I’d love to hear your feedback and opinion in the comments section below.
