On the second day of Christmas… two awesome free apps

Also known as The Bible App, YouVersion is just amazing: you get access to a host of translations of the Bible, and you can have some of those off-line.

You can comment, or highlight verses in different colours, although this is not carried across various translations. You get to share those verses to various social networks or apps, including Evernote –  which is very useful if you want to get back to them later!

You get existing plans where you can track your progress, and this  is a real help to get into a routine, rather than having to flick to the right page.

Finally, there is a browser version that is synced with your phone, so you can get back to your own notes on all platforms!


And I mentioned it above, Evernote is just the amazing on-the-go notebook. Use it to record thoughts, organise them, move them around.

Use them to store Bible verses. Expand on them, jot down your thoughts. Upload pictures, which you then download onto your computer. Write down recipes. Or addresses for Christmas cards.

I used to use GMail’s drafts to keep such snippets of information; EverNote is much more convenient! But don’t take my word for it – take Ben Reed‘s, or, better, try it yourself!

Two awesome apps, and a fun fact about the Bible

On the first day of Christmas… a little-known fact about the Bible

The Wicked Bible

Have you heard of it? It so happens that in the days when printing Bibles was expensive, some mistakes happened. So, at the start of Bibles, you would find a “List of faultes escaped”, i.e. all the typos that were to be found inside the Bible.

One such typo happened in a very unfortunate place: a “not” was missed out. The so-called “Wicked Bible” therefore read “Thou shalt commit adultery”
