YouVersion vs. Bible Gateway App

iOS and iPadOS

I'm looking for a good Bible app that is accessible with Voiceover, and I have been reading some great reviews on the YouVersion app. I'm already used to the Bible Gateway website, and I was wondering how accessible their app is, and the pros and cons of each app. Thank you.

Although I have only utilized the Bible Gateway app a little bit, I can say, without reservation, that the You Version App is spectacular. I have no issues with navigation. There are many versions of the bible available, both in English and many other languages. Many of the English versions also have an audio version of the Bible available, as well. Also, there are probably thousands of Bibler reading plans and topical devotionals to choose from. I cannot recommend this strong enough. It is what has kept me on track in reading my Bible 365 days a year for 10 years now.

YouVersion has a great section for reading plans and devotionals, extra video content and an area where you can connect with friends. The app is 99.9% accessible aside from a few unlabeled buttons when commenting on plans. There are a ton of versions and audio Bibles available as well. I have yet to encounter a serious VoiceOver issue that prevents me from using the app to its full potential.

Thanks. I don't plan on using plans, but it all sounds good. Maybe I could download both and see which one I like better, but 99.9 accessibility, you can't go wrong with that!
