I get a lot of hits on old posts notifying people that they can access different Bible versions on their phones. Often this happens for a limited amount of time, but YouVersion has just announced a more permanent opportunity to access the NIV, as well as some other versions. Here’s the blurb with links:
By Popular Demand: Offline Access to NIV & More
The New International Version (NIV) and 30 other versions from Biblica are now available for free download through the Bible App™. Biblica has been a valuable partner since YouVersion’s early days, and we’re thrilled with their bold move to make this diverse collection of versions available to the global YouVersion community.
These versions represent some of your favorites in 25 languages, including NVI in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, KLB in Korean, NIV-UK in British English, HFA in German, HTB in Dutch, and BDS in French. It’s a huge step forward in increasing worldwide Scripture engagement and availability.
If you download any of these versions to your device, you’ll be able to read it anytime, anywhere—even when you can’t connect to your service provider or to the Internet. And this is not a limited-time special offer.Beginning today, Biblica is making these versions available offline on an ongoing basis.
(If you’re not sure how to download a Bible version to your device, visit our support website to learn how easy it is!)
We are deeply grateful for Biblica’s partnership and all that it has already meant to YouVersion and to our community worldwide. Biblica continues to demonstrate increasing passion about the mission of helping this generation become the most Bible-engaged generation in history.
