“SafeBible” includes many copies of the Bible free of charge. It does not advertise within the App. And, it does not use the App to sell other products or books.
Protects Your Privacy
“SafeBible” is designed to insure each reader’s anonymity. It collects no information about any user, or about any user’s device, or user’s location, or about any user’s use of the App.
Some governments, who are opposed to Christianity, attempt to block access to the Bible. They are not able to block “SafeBible”.
Easy to Use
“SafeBible” is very easy to use. Anyone can use it to study God’s Word without spending time learning to use the App.
“SafeBible” includes a concordance of all words in the Bible, and can be used for the search of one or more words. It responds instantly to any search.
For the benefit of those with very poor eyesight, “SafeBible” is able to present text in very large sizes, especially on larger devices. It can present verse text as large as 3/8 inch high on a 9-inch tablet.
“SafeBible” is designed to make it easy to publish the Bible in many languages. We plan to publish the Bible in as many languages as possible.
The “SafeBible” App is designed to insure every reader’s anonymity. It collects no information about any user, or about any user’s device, or any user’s location. Nor, does it perform any transactions over the Internet that can be blocked or monitored by a government opposed to Christianity.
To best of our knowledge, “SafeBible” is the only Bible App, which provides users with this degree of privacy. In fact, most other Bible Apps collect and store all of the information described here that “SafeBible” does not collect.

Additional work was done to insure the correctness of the Bibles that are published within the App.
The Your Bible App security was improved so that its use could not be blocked or monitored. In some countries, where the government seeks to discourage Christianity, almost all Bible Apps will not work, because those governments have blocked those Apps from accessing Bible content over the Internet. Those governments will not be able to block this Bible App. It is also possible that some governments who consider Christianity a threat are monitoring the use of Bible Apps to identify those people who are reading the Bible. Those governments will not be able to monitor this App.
Your Bible now includes an Arabic and a Persian translation of the Bible.
The first production release has just become available in the Android store today, May 31st, and is expected to be available in the Apple store in approximately one week. This release contains two English language translations. We hope to add many non-English translations soon, and with them open up App pages in those languages in the Apple and Google App stores.
The beta test of “Your Bible” commences on January 17, 2016. We welcome the thoughtful input from those who are skilled in using technology. But just as much, or even more, we value the thoughts of those who find technology awkward to use. Imagine at some future time that some aboriginal person might use “Your Bible” on their newly purchased tablet or Internet enabled TV. We want the app to be sufficiently easy to use that such a person will have no difficulty. We need your help to make this possible.
