20+ Must-Have Apps for Christians

This post contains referral links which means that if you purchase from one of my links, I will receive a small percentage of the sale.  Don't worry, this won't cost you any extra!

I used to scoff at people who pulled their smartphones out in church to use a digital Bible instead of using a physical Bible. I mean, what they were using wasn't a real Bible, right?

20+ Must Have Apps for Christians

But then, I got a smartphone, downloaded the Tecarta Bible app and I was hooked. I fell in love with the way I can quickly and easily check cross-references, see maps and notes on a specific passage, compare translations, and take long notes instead of trying to cram them into the margins of my burgundy leather bound Bible.

Now, I have four Bible apps on my phone, a prayer app, a Bible search app, and 14 sermon/biblical study apps from various preachers and churches. They're all free although some of them do have in-app purchase options. I'm going to share them with you along with what I like about each one and how I use it.
