free iPhone bible applications

Perhaps the most impressive Christian iPhone and iPod Touch applications are bible study applications available through the iTunes store. The big advantage they have over website based bible study tools is that often you can access them offline no matter whether you have a 3G of wireless connection. This also means that searching and reading the bibles is quicker.

Of course this means that you will need some spare space on your iPhone or iPod Touch, but generally this will not be huge compared to the other media you will have. The other disadvantage currently is that the variety of bible translaions available is not as large as web based applications.

This is a relatively easy way to access the Bible Gateway website. However you need to be online for it to work.
