- Bible reader: Users can choose from nearly 300 versions (including audio) and over 140 languages, compare versions side by side, and choose the font and display size.
- Personalization: Notes, bookmarks, and highlights help users personalize their interaction with Scripture, much as they might with a print Bible.

- Social network connections: Users share favorite verses and reading plan progress on Twitter and Facebook.
- Notes: Users can journal thoughts privately or choose to share them with others. The community can access all of the contributions for a verse simply by clicking on it and viewing related notes.
