Has anyone tried this app? What does it do?

What beats me is how the inventor is going to make money out of it - do
you have to pay a regular subscription or what?

If anyone wants a program to serve up random passages from the Bible,
just contact me. I'll be happy to write it for free and without hopes of
becoming a millionaire. (And without millions in backing from investors
and pop stars!)

God bless,

The basic app is free to install and use, but it offers paid
subscriptions for additional features such as audiobook readings and
devotional music.

It's not random, the selection of passages and reflections is themed.
For example, it's currently doing advent readings, as you might expect.

It is also useful as a basic Bible app. As well as the daily passages
and quotes, it also has the full text of the NIV, ESB and NASV.

A lot of work has clearly gone into it, and I think that many people
will find it useful. I'm not entirely sure, though, that it will
generate as much revenue as the investors think it will.

Thanks.

And that is difficult? It requires a bit of extra programming, but that
is all.

No KJV?!?! I presume he had to pay a fee for use of the NIV.

I'm all for anything that will get people reading the Bible more, but I
agree with you; there's going to be some very out-of-pocket heathen out
there!
