With users in every country of the world, the YouVersion Bible App has reached a quarter of a billion downloads.

The Bible App was one of the first 200 apps in Apple’s App Store debut eight years ago, and this year has been the biggest year yet for Bible engagement through the app.

“We are humbled by how many people use the Bible App on a regular basis,” said Bobby Gruenewald, Life.Church Innovation Pastor and YouVersion Bible App founder. “When we decided to make the Bible available as an app, we never could have imagined how much it would revolutionize the way people engage with Scripture.”
Use of the Bible App continues to grow with significant increases in downloads in several countries across the globe, from Argentina to Tanzania to Palestine, and some countries like Mozambique, Nepal, and Bangladesh are growing by triple digits.
Along with the increase in downloads, the app saw higher engagement with Scripture in these countries. As a whole, the YouVersion community read and listened to more than 13 billion Bible chapters this year, and created more than one billion highlights, bookmarks, and notes.
