Audio Bible Reader on Android

Devices may offer audio through the accessibility option but theses are not coordinated with the app.

If you have a limited data plan, using audio without WiFi could cause you to reach your limit quickly, and trigger extra charges.

For the best audio experience possible, we strongly recommend that you connect using WiFi while listening

Many networks may cause delays or “stuttering.” If you notice delays or hiccups, try pausing the audio, wait several seconds to allow your audio to buffer, then resume play

Since any change in the network connection can cause an interruption, audio may not work well in a moving vehicle
