Tech Talk: Wanted: CATHOLIC Bible Tracking App


I decided to take a different approach for my Tech Talk column this month. Instead of sharing a resource, I’m looking for one!

Didache BibleI would love a CATHOLIC Bible Tracker App. I got the new Didache Bible and I’m loving it so much that I find myself reading a lot. But I’ve been skipping around a lot. I decided to start with the books that are not in the Protestant bible. I also try to read the daily readings of the Mass. There are apps to track your bible reading for the Protestants and even the Mormons.

But I haven’t found one for the Catholic books. Some track by chapters and others go by individual verse!  I would love to be able to set a reading goal, like the whole New Testament this year or the book of Proverbs by next month. And if there was a plan to read what is NOT in the daily & Sunday readings, well, the dork in me would totally be all over that!

Has anyone seen one for the iPhone that I missed? Would you be interested in such an app or is it just me?

  1. Hi Jen,

    I use Olive Tree Bible Study app. This app is entire all in one library of bibles, study plans, commentaries, maps, dictionaries, inspiration e-books and more available for purchase. Yes, the NABre is available for in their library for purchase. Some resources are offered for free. I like this app because I can highlight, journal, annotate and more in the app and it will sync directly with evernote. Another beautiful feature is that I can cross reference a bible verse in one edition with another book in my library viewing both simultaneously using the in-app split screen. Find out more by visiting their website (link provided below). I believe about half way down the page under title “Daily Reading Plans” is what you were specifically asking about. I have used this app for years and it is my go to bible resource on the go.
