Most of the desktop books are also available for download to the iOS and Android version at no additional charge. However the Desktop version is not required as the app can be used by itself with more than 100 free eBooks. While the desktop version is primarily devoted to Bible study the iOS app is equally at home with just being used to read books. This application is developed by LifeWay Christian Resources. LifeWay has its own app but but all the books from both companies will work in the this app.
