What makes Dwell Unique?
• Listening Plans
Listen to the Proverbs in 30 Days, Romans in 7 Days, or the Parables of Jesus in 14 Days, and many more.
The Bible is filled with many amazing stories. Our user-friendly Stories section will help you begin listening to one in seconds.
Listen to thoughtfully curated Scripture playlists on perennial themes like hope, discipleship, salvation, and others.
Listen to some of the watershed passages found in Scripture. Soak in the Sermon on the Mount, Romans 8, Psalm 119, Colossians 3 and more with the tap of a finger.
When you go Unlimited you unlock all four of our signature Scripture readers and can switch between them "on the fly" while listening.
If you wish, listen to originally composed music underneath the Bible narration. Don't worry. It doesn't distract, but instead draws you into the text.

free version is a good sample
I have not subscribed to premium, but the free version is not complete. Most of the books are there, but not all of them. For most listeners, the included books should be adequate. The reading plans are well done. The app is easy to use with VoiceOver.Reading enjoyment, yes. For a reference to prepare a sermon, no.
This Bible reading app.
I'm not sure what version of the Bible is used. The readers are good. But, I am so used to Alexander Scourby. He's my favorite Bible (King James Version) reader. Maybe he could be added?
the bible version
from reading the website of dwell, it seems the ESV (english standard version) is being used, but they intend i believe to add more bibles and languages.
More books and versions coming
I can say for sure that more books and versions of the bible are coming. Can't say when. Also memorization options will eventually be added as well. New background music is added each quarter if memory serves...
adding Alexander Scorby
I doubt if he could be added. He did his reading in the nineteen fifties, and is now dead. I doubt if that reading could legally be added to an app that is not specifically for NLS patrons. Another reason is that he died.
I don't see why not.
I think I've seen his narrations being sold on-line, so I don't see why they couldn't be added to the app.
Re: adding Alexander Scorby
I don't imagine he'd be added to this app as he has his own app in the app store which if memory serves might already have a review on AppleVis. As for the Dwell app I've recently discovered and am strongly considering purchasing the paid version as it does seem very accessible. One can never have too many tools at one's disposal. Here's to having options.
