YouVersion, launched by Life.Church in 2008, recently announced that the Bible app has now topped 200 million installs. In its third consecutive year of adding 50 million installs, the app now offers the Bible in more than 1,200 versions and 900 languages. This year, the favorite verse for the United States was bookmarked, shared, highlighted, and listened to so much that it beat out every other verse in the app’s history. That verse was Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing, and perfect will”. American users preferred the New International Version. Every second, 112 people open the YouVersion Bible app.
