YouVersion, the Bible app, is celebrating 500 million installs but insists that they are not done yet.
The current figure is 500,171,744 downloads, and the company commented on its success, saying, “Today we’re celebrating 500 million installs…
But we’re not just thinking about what God has done; we’re also anticipating what He will do next.
“Imagine a day in the not-too-distant future when 1 billion people have downloaded YouVersion.”
The app, which allows smartphone and tablet users to access Scripture in over 60 languages, has been available since 2008 and was one of the first 200 free apps on the App Store.
As part of the celebration, they are promoting Hebrews 4:12: “For the Word of God is alive and active, and as sharp as any two-edged sword…”
YouVersion also encourages readers to enroll in its ‘The Bible is Alive’ course, which examines how Scripture changes people’s lives and introduces them to the Gospel.
