There are many apps for reading the Bible, but few that make it possible to listen to the Bible. I spend a lot of time commuting each day and I am often either walking to or from the train station, or too tired to read.
The app emerged from a Kickstarter campaign and became the 4th most funded app of all time! With Dwell you can listen to the Bible (ESV, with more translations to come) read by one of four different voices, accompanied by original background music.
You can also select a playlist based on themes, stories, passages and plans. The app currently contains the entire New Testament and 7 Old Testament books, with more on the way.
The free version includes one voice and recurring interruptions. There are 3 pricing plans available for all of the voices and unlimited, uninterrupted listening:
- $2.99 a month.
- $23.99 a year.
- $126.99 a lifetime.
Dwell is available now on iOS, and later this year on Android.
