Finger Friendly Bible App Updated to v0.5
XDA member lagbaja‘s Bible reading application for Windows Phones has gained many followers due to its ease of use and the fact that it’s absolutely free, unlike many of its competitors. Recently, the app was updated to version 0.5, and while still in its beta stages of development, it is now noticeably more stable and feature-rich than its original release.
The Finger-friendly Bible App offers a very convenient solution to the problem of having to carry a several-thousand page book around with you if you want to read the Bible on the move.
