Frequently Asked Questions about the Verbum app on iOS

What’s the difference between the iPhone, and iPad app?

The app is essentially the same for all three devices. They use the same general interface, menus, and application from the App Store, but they may appear differently based on screen size available.


Do I have to be a Verbum customer to use the iPhone app?

No. Our application is free for anyone to use and can be downloaded from the app store. However, if you are a Verbum user, the app will give you access to books from your Verbum library.


How much does the iPhone app cost?

The Verbum Bible Software app is available for free at the App Store.


Will the Verbum Bible app work with my specific iOS Device? Do I have enough space?

Please see our release notes for the currently supported versions of iOS.


Do I need to be connected to internet for the app to work?

Yes and no. You will need to be connected to the internet via your cell phone service provider or Wi-Fi to access Guides, Bible Word Study, Text Comparison and Word Info features. Search will work when offline but only for resources that have been previously downloaded.


Can I read my books offline?

The current version of our app offers limited offline reading by pre-downloading resources to your device (requires an internet connection via your wireless carrier or Wi-Fi). Learn More >>
