One great feature in The Bible Study App is the ability share text from the Bible, a devotional, or even a study resource. You can do this from an Android or iOS device. Here’s how:
Share feature for iOS
First select the text you want to share. In the screenshot below I’ve selected two sentences from the Streams in the Desert devotional. After selecting the text (by tapping and dragging) then tap on the ‘Share’ option.
You’ll then see four different ways you can share the selected text. If you haven’t already connected the App to your social channels you’ll be prompted to do so.
Share feature for Android
Similar to iOS tap and hold or in the example below, since I want to share a Bible verse, I can also tap the verse number and select the range I want to share. Once you have your selection, tap the ‘Share’ option.
What’s different with Android compared to iOS is that you can share the selected text through a variety of other Apps you have installed on your device.
So the next time you’re reading an ebook, devotional, or a passage that really means a lot to you, try out the share option. As always we’d love to hear what you think and what other ways would make The Bible Study App an essential tool for your spiritual growth. Feel free to share any ideas in the comment section!
As you read along in your Bible, the Resource Guide within the Bible Study app follows you, looking in your library for any information that is relevant to your reading. Here’s how to get started using the Resource Guide.
To open the resource guide:
Tap on the gray double bar that appears at the far right or bottom of the screen. When it turns blue you can drag the split window open.
Once you’ve pulled the split window open, tap on your phone’s settings button to bring up the menu
From the drop down, tap on ‘Resource Guide’
When you select Resource Guide for the first time, it will ask you to download the database, tap on the message to start downloading the Resource Guide.
After the download completes, the Resource Guide will open. The Resource Guide displays information from your library related to the current passage you are reading. You can see commentaries, maps, charts and more. To change the setting for the Resource Guide to open in the split window, open the ‘Advanced Settings’ and check the box for displaying the Resource Guide in the split window.
To engage the Bible more, you need to enter the world from which it came. From the beginning of Genesis to the end of Revelation, The Archaeological Study Bible is filled with study material that opens your eyes to the archaeological, historical, and cultural contexts of the stories you read and the people you meet in Scripture.
Take a journey back to the lands and origins of the Bible for an unparalleled encounter with the Word of God. Get insights into the roots of the Bible that will strengthen your faith and open new vistas of knowledge and understanding. Like no other study Bible, this one provides a sweeping, detailed look at the lands and times of Scripture, bringing to light the importance of ancient civilizations, practices, historical records and artifacts, literature, architecture, religions, laws, events, movements, geography, agriculture, wars and battles, political and monetary systems, historical figures and other factors that are critical to a deep and accurate grasp of the Bible.

Here’s how you can change between the two.
Then tap ‘Advanced Settings‘ and select ‘Scrolling‘ (‘Scrolling Settings’ in Android).
From there you can select which text scrolling option you prefer to use in The Bible Study App.
