JW Library: Read the Bible Everywhere Review
JW Library is an official application developed by Jehovah’s Witnesses. It contains multiple Bible’s translations as well as different books and pamphlets to help the learning process. You can download JW Library in the Play Market for free.
Functionality — 5/5
This application provides everything that the Bible learner no matter of their level may want. Firstly, the most crucial Bible sacred writings are collected here. You can choose between various Bible’s translations according to their age and the author, or just your preference. On the other hand, there is an option to compare the Bible’s translations by pressing on the exact version or tapping on a verse’s number directly. Also, you can easily see all associated with the verse material while reading it. So if something is not understandable, just switch to the available interpretations.
Design — 4/5
The interface is divided by categories which are sorted quite solidly. More importantly, there are no ads and annoying pop-ups. The color choice is very neutral and comfortable for reading. Minus one point for the lack of dark mode.
Usability — 5/5
No JW Library review will tell better about this application than trying it yourself. Reading the Bible is a very personal experience, and no one can guide you through the situations in your life when the application would become useful. Only your faith. But as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, I can assure you, installing JW Library on the smartphone saved me many times. It’s a life-changer in the difficult moments when only a phone is near.
Multiple translations have been very helpful for the understanding of the Holy Scripture. By comparing how ideas are expressed, it is the easiest way to grasp the meaning. The application is extremely useful indeed.
Cross-platform use — 5/5
Both Android and iOS are suitable for JW Library. All iOS devices are supported. It has become so easy to read the Bible while traveling. Moreover, the application has the most popular languages in the world, which makes it truly universal.
Let’s appreciate the developers’ diligence. You will unlikely encounter any ads or in-app purchases in all including the latest version of JW Library. Thanks to that fact, the number of hindrances on your way to the learning is heavily reduced. All that you can depend on is your devotion and faith. Taking into consideration all the information that the developers carefully put into this free JW Library application, it is a really generous gift for all of us.
The Bottom Line
You will find a use of free downloading JW Library, if you’re a Jehovah’s Witness and want to broaden your practice. Though it has its pros and cons, you won’t find exact functionality in other apps. For other people, I guess, JW Library will be useless.Collapse
It is an actual must-have for every Jehovah’s Witness, who is determined to be consistent with the Bible reading. That is why you should download JW Library.
