Top Ten Android Apps for Spiritual Growth

  1. Love it! I have a Droid as well, and it is harder to find good suggestions! Thanks!

  2. Please check out Verse Box Scripture Memory android app and give a review. I believe this should be in your list as well.

  3. Please check out new app -Orange Word-. Let me know what you think.

  4. Thanks for collecting the list of Android apps for spiritual growth. I use YouVersion Bible daily and MySword for the weekly bible study I attend. Going to download and try out Logos Bible Software.

    I’ve been working on a series of Android daily devotional apps and they are available for free on Google Play – . Hope you can try out the apps. Would appreciate your feedback and review. Thanks.

  5. I didn’t see any note taking apps, and in general I’ve had trouble finding note taking apps that fit my note taking style. I wrote an app called Sermon Notes that recognizes bible verses and turns them into links that can be opened in an online or offline bible reader.

    Please take a look at it and let me know what you think, and also if you have any suggestions or other Christian note taking programs out there.

  6. Take a look also at “Daily Bible Verse” app on android. This app simply gives you a daily scripture that has direct and purposeful meaning within its own context.

  7. They didn’t list Church caster for android! I love this app lets me listen to sermon podcast on my android.

  8. John Dingle says:

    I’d like to see Search the Scriptures as a bible reading plan on – 12 months is to much a day for me.

  9. Diego Monsalve says:

    I would not call K Love a Christian app, it sounds like a secular station, Christian rock? about christian tatoo parlor or christian srip joint or christian liquour store. Do Not conform to the world.

    • please do not limit the type of music that God can use… not everyone relates to the “old hymns” many are blessed by K Love. Just as there are different denominations, of which God is still God in those churches, not everyone is called to the same denomination. Yes, God can and does use Christian Rock and Christian Rap music. i personally don’t care for the style of Rap music, but i certainly would not rule it out as something God can use to bring people to him,

    • to refer to K Love ad a Christian Tattoo parlor or Liquor store or a strip joint is definitely showing that you do not believe that God can use anything HE so chooses for HIS glory, n maybe you need to check where your walk is leading you… and start allowing God to be the God of everything!

  10. You should check out our selection of apps, which include Daily Devotionals, Daily Bible Verse, and Daily Scriptures –

  11. Jack Tsang says:

    Bible Advice is about learning about different topics in the Bible.

  12. Daily Bible Quotes + says:
  13. Quick bible for me is the best offline bible :)

  14. Have you tried Church Caster? Its a great way to listen to christian pod-casts when you don’t have a Iphone!

  15. Ritu Sabharwal says:

    Here’s another devotional app that will make you sip your morning tea longer and will let you enjoy your “me-time” :D
    It has all mantras, chalisas, shlokas available in both hindi and english. It also gives you so many custom-recorded bhajans and aartis. the excellence of this app doesn’t ends here, it also has the location of all hindu sacred places across the globe, that too with details! It has so much to offer that can not be explained in just a comment! So you must download this unique devotional app for eternal bliss!

    You can download the app from these links
    Android users –

    iphone & ipad users –

    Who would’nt like an app with an audio bible, Christian radio, sermons, news, Christian cartoons for kids, music videos and more?

  19. patric m. says:

    Hi, i am just starting out developing apps.The first app i made is a bible box. Thought i should start developing apps with something divine.

    I got it published via a friends account.It is really simple and basic but would be useful and is completely ad-free.(I don’t think i should monetize an app with such a divine purpose.)Please do support.

  20. I know this is an older discussion but wanted to, share an app I found recently for for Droid – Abide. Love the music behind an audio devotional. :)

  21. Emilly Stone says:

    Dear brothers here you have the God’s word to download and read every day! God bless you!

  22. These are Christian and religious. They should be filed under those categories, not spiritual. Christianity is not the same thing as spirituality.
