SIL has developed a free tool for translators to get the precious Scriptures in the hands of the people quickly and cheaply. Scripture App Builder helps anyone to build customized Scripture apps for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.
You specify the Scripture files to use, the app name, the fonts, the colors, the about box information, the audio and the icons. Scripture App Builder will package everything together and build the customized app for you. You can then install it on your phone, send it to others by Bluetooth, share it on microSD memory cards and publish it to app stores on the Internet.
Apps can be built directly from Paratext and audio files. No programming experience is necessary. Audio recordings can be synchronized with the text so that each verse or phrase is highlighted as it is read. This is a powerful feature for those learning to read in their language. The apps do not require an internet connection. Content can be packaged together for offline use and distribution, or audio can be made available online.
