ABOUT IT: The app comes with hundreds of verses, including a "top 200." A quiz mode removes one word at a time to assist in memorization. The app also comes with an audio option where users can record and listen to themselves quoting the verse. Bible verses are available in four translations: ESV, KJV, NASB and NIV.
