If you carry a Bible on your smartphone, you may like to know that you can download the NIV Bible on the YouVersion Bible app for a limited time. March 1 to be exact.
The YouVersion Bible app allows you to access a variety of translations and versions of the Bible as long as you are connected to the Internet. There are a few off-line versions you can download like the KJV and the NKJV. For a limited time, you can also get the NIV 2010 version as an off-line download for free.
When I used to work in the hospital, I would always run into people reading the Bible. Some would read in the elevators. Others would read in the call rooms.

2011 marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. To celebrate this milestone of making God’s Word available in the common language of the people, all throughout this year, YouVersion will be highlighting several special events and opportunities that will make it easier than ever to access, engage and share the Bible.
The first event we’re excited to tell you about is a special 400-hour promotion made possible through a partnership with Biblica and Zondervan. Exclusively through the Bible App™ you’ll be able to download the New International Version (NIV) using an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device…absolutely free. Downloading the NIV means you’ll be able to read it anytime, anywhere—even when you can’t connect to your service provider or the Internet, and after the 400 hour promotion is over. This special offer only lasts for a limited time, starting THIS SATURDAY, February 12, at 8:00 PM U.S. Eastern Time (GMT-5) and ending at 12:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 1, marking the first availability of the NIV update in print.
