 7 Best Bible Study Apps for Christian Women -- All Free!Pin

Do you ever wish you could read the Bible more regularly or study the Bible more in-depth?

If so, and you have a smartphone, you’re in luck!

Not only can you use your smartphone to read thought-provoking articles from your favorite websites for Christian Women or listen to the best Christian podcasts for women

You can also use your smartphone to learn how to read the bible regularly or to learn how to study the bible for yourself!

(Both important skills for every Christian woman to have!) 


Now, I know… smartphones can be a major source of distraction that prevents Christian women from regularly reading the Bible. That’s very true.

BUT it all depends how you use them!


If your phone is full of email and social media apps, chances are those are the platforms you’re going to check most often.

However, if you replace the social media apps on your phone with one or two of the best Bible study apps (either by deleting your social media apps or making them harder to access), it’s very easy to make it that much more likely you’ll read your Bible on a regular basis!

You just have to take the habits you are already doing anyways (getting on your phone), and tweak them a little bit (to check Bible study apps instead of social media apps), and you may just find that learning how to read and study the Bible isn’t so difficult after all!

Of course, that brings up the question: What ARE the Best Bible Study Apps for Christian Women?”

(After all, it doesn’t do you any good to download an app that won’t actually help you learn how to read and study the Word…)


Well, you’re in luck. Because today I’m sharing 7 of the BEST Bible Study Apps for Christian Women — and they’re all free!

Enjoy! 🙂

1. First 5: #1 Best Bible Reading App for Christian Women


Of all the free Bible study apps for women available today, the First 5 app by Proverbs 31 Ministries is a personal favorite on my list of best Bible apps and the one I’ve personally used the most.

Designed to help Christian women begin their day in the Word, this handy daily Bible study app allows you to set a custom reminder on your phone to remind you to log in each day so you don’t forget or get distracted.

Inside the app, you can choose from a variety of Bible reading plans — all designed to be completed in only 5 minutes a day. Each reading comes with a short Bible passage, a quick and easy devotional, and a question for further reflection. Save your answers right in the Bible learning app so you can go back and reflect at how far you’ve come, or connect with the community within the app for great insights and discussion.

This free daily Bible study not only makes it super easy to jump in and get started at any time, but First 5’s super short lessons are perfect for busy moms who want to be inspired without taking a lot of time.

4. Bible Gateway: Best Bible App for Looking Up Specific Verses


I use Bible Gateway ALL the time on desktop for looking up verses in different translations. (Any time you see a verse quoted on this site, there’s a 99% chance that’s where it came from)

So you can only imagine how happy I was to see that Bible Gateway offers a free Bible app as well — and it’s a good one!


A great resource for anyone who wants to quickly and easily look up specific Bible verses in any translation, the Bible Gateway app offers more than 90 different Bible translations, over 20 audio Bibles, and an entire library of popular Bible commentaries and other references.

Use the search feature to look up any verse in any translation, or check out the Verse of the Day for a little bit of encouragement and inspiration. You can even follow along with one of many Bible reading plans or make use of the highlighting or note-taking features as well.

Bible Gateway is on my list of best Bible apps because it’s a simple but robust app. Plus it’s a fantastic resource for looking up specific Bible passages quickly and easily.


The Bible Gateway App is available on both Google Play and the Itunes app store.

Ready to go beyond simply reading your Bible to learn how to study the Bible more in-depth? If so, then the Blue Letter Bible App is a great place to start.

This handy and free Bible app allows you to read and study over 30 Bible versions (including audio Bibles), 8,000 Bible commentaries, multiple Bible dictionaries and more.

Full of thousands of free Bible resources, this app is perfect for the Christian women who wants to break free from pre-written Bible reading plans to learn how to study the Bible for herself–without getting overwhelmed in the process.

6. Logos Bible Study Tools: Best Bible Study App for Advanced Users


If you’re serious about diving in and studying the Bible, Logos is a name you need to know. The Logos Bible Study app has SO many resources designed to help you study the Bible far more in-depth than you ever could on your own.

In this incredibly useful and comprehensive app, you’ll find quite a few popular Bible translations, audio Bibles, commentaries and reading plans — all for free. (Plus, you have the option to purchase additional resources if you want to take your study even deeper.)


What’s really need about this app is that it’s made for studying. Not only can you do the typical highlighting and note-taking, but it even supports tabbed browsing AND split screen, so you can open as many resources as you want side by side for comparison.

Do a comprehensive word study with available dictionaries, lexicons and cross references, or check out one of their passage guides for a quick road-map to additional resources for each verse. You can even search and share.

So much more than just a simple reading guide, this app will help you better uncover and explain all the nuances of Scripture for a more complete, accurate understanding of both the text and the times.

  1. The other Bible app I use is Olive Tree. It comes with a free Bible (and is free itself with free books included) although to add resources you have to buy them. I love it and use it daily. It is available on multiple platforms including my Kindle Fire.
    I also use most of the Bible apps you have listed here – a great list!

    1. I saw that one and was SO close to including it in this list, but yeah, it looked like you had to buy almost everything, and I was looking more for free apps for this list. It did look good though!

      1. I was looking for something that was free also. There was about two that I really liked and thought would benefit me greatly but the cost is just to much.

  2. Great list Brittany! I definitely will have to try the audio Bible app. I never thought about listening to Bible passages before and I could use a good way to switch it up! I bet it will give me a whole new perspective. Thanks for the idea 🙂

  3. Dear Brittany , I couldn’t help but share this app which I use often , containing some of the most prized devotion classics , and it’s completely free too . It’s the YouDevotion Lite from Tap Tap Studio . I hope you like it too .

  4. Thank you for these! I will take a look at She Reads Truth. I absolutely love the Logos app and am constantly learning new features it has to dig in deeper in the word.

  5. I love the following audio Bible. It is not mono tone like some and it puts you in the verses for better understanding.

    Listen to the dramatized English Audio Bible (New Revised Standard Version) on your mobile devices. You can also download audio to listen offline. Click on the link below to download the app from the Google Play store. https://goo.gl/1TAV8k

  6. I’m addicted to the youth app LOVE IS MOVING!! Great articles and they’re on FB, Instagram, they even put out a quarterly magazine that’s perfect for youth hang outs.
    Katîe, the social co-ordinator,, is always looking for youth or others to write articles. They will even help edit it. So refreshing and all for Jesus♥️♥️♥️THIS A MUST FOR YOUTH

  7. Glad to find this information. I have been looking for a good study app. I just downloaded bible study app.lisyen to the first one. Very good listening.

  8. This was a fantastic list of Bible Study Apps! My personal favourite is YouVersion… its just so easy to use and I just love how it has so many different devotionals and Bible reading plans available for us to read along with! Plus, it is so good if you want to see what your friends have been reading etc. its social aspect is really cool too!

    I actually just recently wrote a post too about Bible study apps for women if anyone would like to find more recommendations: https://truthfullymichelle.com/bible-app-for-women/ … although there is a little bit of an overlap because Brittany did an amazing job of coming up with such a lovely list!
