Bible App for Kids sees record-breaking downloads during 2020

by Premier Journalist

Bible App for Kids, which is a kid-friendly version of the YouVersion and OneHope Bible, has been downloaded to more than 14 million devices this year. 

The downloads show an increase of 193 per cent compared to the same timeframe last year. The recent surge in growth helped the app reach a new milestone of 50 million  installs since its launch in 2013.

The app is designed to help young children learn God's word/Bible stories through interactive animations and activities.

From January to August this year, kids from around the globe have completed more than 109 million study plans which depict 41 stories of the Bible. This represents a record high number of Bible study plans completed, with over 175 million stories projected for completion by the end of the year. 

Parents can also sign into the app with their YouVersion account to create profiles for their children and receive weekly email updates detailing their progress. This weekly wrap-up is customised for each family, showing story highlights for each child who completed Bible stories that week.

YouVersion director Brian Russell said it is inspiring to see the Bible App helping parents get through these difficult times: "In a year filled with so much uncertainty, it's incredibly humbling and encouraging to see a record number of parents turn to the Bible App for Kids to help their children navigate this difficult season and grow spiritually."

OneHope president Rob Hoskins said: "We are in awe of how God continues to use the Bible App for Kids as a resource for so many families.

"It is an honour to come alongside these parents who are looking for help and give them some much needed support in the middle of this turbulent time."

The Bible App for Kids currently available in 58 languages and has been installed in every country in the world.
