If you want the NIV on your phone to use offline now is your chance! In a recent email YouVersion made this announcement:
Download the Offline NIV
For a limited time, you’ll be able to download the New International Version(NIV) for offline use in the Bible App. From 12:00 AM December 1 through 11:59 PM December 12—Central Time U.S. (GMT -6)—once again, you can download the NIV. If you missed your chance last time, or if you know someone who did, spread the word and make sure you take advantage of this opportunity! (When you download a version, that means you can read it in the Bible App—even when you can’t connect to your service provider or to the Internet.) Special thanks go to Biblica and Zondervan for making the NIV available to the YouVersion community!
Thank you Biblica, Zondervan and YouVersion 🙂
