1 million downloads for YouVersion's Bobby Gruenewald on 'The Bible App For Kids,' in Just a Few Days

YouVersion's Bible app For kids
YouVersion "Bible App for Kids" has already been downloaded a million times since it was made available on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013.

The app was developed in collaboration with the international ministry OneHope, which produces age specific and customized scripture programs based on research for young people around the world

"Just like we've seen the Bible App transform how our generation is engaging with Scripture, we believe the Bible App for Kids will change how the next generation discovers the grand narrative of the Bible," said Bobby Gruenewald, innovation pastor of LifeChurch.tv in Oklahoma, which created YouVersion.

The free YouVersion Bible App Hit 100 Million Downloads early in the year. The free YouVersion Bible App was among the first 200 apps available on iTunes.

The primary catalyst for the project was the YouVersion community itself, "the world's largest digital Bible-sharing community," the Bible App creators say. Though some kids are already using the original Bible App, it wasn't really made with them in mind. YouVersion moved forward with the project when its survey indicated that more than 95 percent of its community of parents surveyed would be interested in the Bible App for Kids and that it would help their children engage with the Bible more in their everyday lives.

The app's creators say it's an engaging, interactive adventure that's beautifully illustrated and animated. The Bible App for Kids explores the larger story of the Bible from a walk through the garden with Adam and Eve to a journey to Bethlehem the night Jesus was born. The app was designed from the ground up to engage kids who can't read or are just beginning, and early readers.

"With translations in other languages besides English in the works, the app will also make it possible to reach children worldwide. Even in countries where evangelism is difficult, smartphones are prevalent," said Rob Hoskins, president of OneHope.
