There are several excellent online Bibles available but my favorite, without a doubt, is YouVersion.

YouVersion is an online Bible, but it's really much, much more. It allows individuals to contribute their thoughts on the Scriptures. It allows for community interaction around the Scriptures. It provides several reading plans which can be read and tracked on the web and on a mobile device simultaneously. It provides a way for churches or Bible study groups to follow the message outlines and Scripture readings live on their mobile devices. It truly is an amazing resource!

My smartphone of choice is the Palm Pre. YouVersion has an excellent app for the Palm Pre and Palm Pixi that allows access to the same features on the smartphone that are available on the YouVersion website.

Of course, YouVersion has excellent apps for the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and Android phones, but it's the Palm YouVersion app that I want to feature.

Here's why:

Currently, Palm is running a contest to see which app is downloaded the most by the end of June. YouVersion is trying to win $10,000 or maybe even $100,000. They would like to win the money so they can put it right back into development of all their mobile platforms.

If you have a Palm Pre or Palm Pixi, you can help by downloading the YouVersion app from the App Catalog. Not only will you be enriched spiritually by this app, but you will also help the Bible to reach more and more people all over the world.

There's not much time left in this contest, so if you have a Pre or Pixi, download it today. It's totally free!
