The verse most highlighted, shared and bookmarked in the YouVersion Bible App in 2017 was Joshua 1:9, which says, “Have I not command you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

 You Version, a free Apple app introduced and run by Oklahoma City based Life.Church, began ten years ago and has been downloaded in every country since. KOCO5 News quoted Life.Church innovation pastor and app founder Bobby Gruenewald who stated, “The very first weekend in 2008, we saw 83, 000 people install the Bible App on their phone just in three or four days.” The YouVersion website reports 300,000,000 installs and counting.

 The app, among the very first batch of free Apple apps ever released, remains free ten years later. “We have never regretted that the app is free, in fact, it’s something that the church here really felt called to do,” Gruenewald said. “And I believe that that’s part of the reason that God’s blessed it.” KOCO News states that Gruenewald thought of the idea while standing in an airport line.
