Best Bible App for Android?
I have the YouVersion Bible, but there are times when I need a Bible in areas with poor data connections. I need something that stores the Bible on the phone, because YouVersion can take a long time, or fail completely, to load in these areas.

Not sure of an app but if you can't find one, you could probably use one of the e-readers and download an e-book of it.

I use YouVersion too, it's great, but I agree it can be frustrating when you're not getting a good data signal. Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to easily find a downloadable version of a modern translation for free. Just browsing through the market though, it looks like Tecarta has a nice looking NIV downloadable version for $6, might be worth checking out.

I have used the Olive Tree Biblereader on the BB and Android phones. Just type Olive Tree in the Android Market search. It will give you several choices of the Olive Tree reader with a free bible version already in the app, ie. KJV, NLT, NIV, or ESV.

Be patient, the only decent one is yet to come. I couldn't stand Olive Tree....myBible, aka PocketBible, aka Laridian is the only one, and they're done now with the port for the iDiots, so now it's Android time. But there are only two of them. This was far and away the only Bible in Palm land, and it'll be here. Eventually.

I'm another vote for Olive Tree. Saying one Bible is better than another is silly. It's all the same Bible. Now you may prefer one app and it's features over another, but that's different. For me it has to be easy to get to the books/verses I want and has to be easy to read. The Olive Tree app does both of those.

As to Laridian, when I was on Win Mobile Laridian was the gold standard. I look forward to seeing how they implement their programs on Android.

"Android Applications Discuss applications you've found in the marketplace, a list of commonly used apps, read/write mini reviews, ask questions, and get answers."
I suggested two Android apps, don't like them? Don't use them.

The poster came onto a thread clearly about Android Bible Applications and recommended 2 apps that are both of atheist origin and both mock the Bible. That violates the TOS of the forum (harassing post, rude post). Hence the TOS violation, The moderators concurred and removed the post.
And judging by the newest post from that poster, he needs to read the TOS for Android Central forums.

Tony, Cadre looks very interesting! That might be my work around until Laridian gets it done. (And they need to hope that it isn't better!) Lots of free choices to try out, so we'll see. Thanks for that, hadn't seen it before. The i_____...mentioned above is a no go. You have to buy the platform in order to see anything at all.
