BIBLE NEWS: YouVersion Bible App reached 100 million downloads

The popular free Bible App YouVersion has reached a momentous milestone - 100 million downloads!  Originally imagined as a website, the team quickly revamped their plans when Apple opened their iTunes App Store 5 years ago.  It has been one of the most popular apps on the store from the very beginning, and has now been extended to Android, Windows, and more.
The app racked up 83,000 downloads in the first day, and YouVersion responded by pivoting to focus full-time on mobile apps. To date, YouVersion supports 500 versions of the Bible across 300 languages...Gruenewald also noted that Bible apps have “fundamentally changed the social aspect” of reading the book. YouVersion sees roughly 200,000 shares per day, across a range of services, including Facebook, Twitter, SMS and email.
