LifeWay Reader App Details

The LifeWay Reader is moving to! is a new, free, web-based platform created to help you read and study the Bible online wherever you go. Anywhere you have an Internet connection, visit myWSB, and you can access Bibles, commentaries, study Bibles, reference works, and more online. Once you've added a book to your library, not only is it available on, but it will sync to the WORDsearch® mobile apps. Save your work in either of these places, and you'll be able to access it no matter what device you happen to be using.

App Reviews

  • Don’t buy Lifeway Download books. Reader app doesn’t work.

    By Jordacious
    I downloaded a bible study book, and the only way to open it was with this reader app. While the website says other sites allow you to open/read, this is incorrect. Problems: 1) when I attempt to highlight a section, it DELETES the text. No way to get it back. There is no ‘delete’ feature so this is a mystery. 2) the TEXT feature does not work. At all. 3) touching various chapters in the book does not always take you to that location. 4) no way to communicate with anyone at Lifeway about a refund; just an online blog type of similar questions. There is a live chat feature which does not work on the weekends. :( So I now have a partial book, with the sections that are important to me deleted. I see why this app has a 2.7 overall star rating.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By KMdaveAllen
    Our church was a Leader Guide short for the Winter 2018-2019 quarter so I thought a digital copy on my iPad would suffice however I was wrong. There is no flipping between the course material and commentary. Instead you must scroll down a full page to read about the point the author is making. Then scroll back up to find where you left off. None of the highlight or marking features would work on my iPad. Basic formatting of this app is so limited I can only compare it to a scroll! LifeWay has great material but this app isn’t one of them. Wasted the cost of a digital download to find this out.
  • Wish I had found it sooner

    By takethisworldgivemejesus
    My college course uses LifeWay for textbooks. I wish I had known about the app sooner because the website reader is not mobile friendly at all. I didn’t discover this one until there were only about 2 weeks left in the class.
  • Works with some books but not all

    By Regicus
    For books that the reader actually downloads it works well. However... it won’t download all the books available. Gets a “request timed out” error after a few minutes.
  • Overall, disappointing

    By shifty1592
    This app is slow and laggy. It also lacks basic features like font size editor and even page search. I attend school online and some of my text books are through Lifeway online. It’s frustrating that I have a 1,500 page book and no way to jump to a specific page
  • Lifeway vs kindle

    By wmc46
    The application has many update needs. I have used kindle for many years. The Kindle application far exceeds Lifeway application. The applications should be competitive.
  • Can’t Read with This “Reader”

    By Rev from Indy
    Just bought the Fall 2018 Explore the Bible Leader Guide. Freezes every time I open it. 😖
  • Quirky at times

    By Cweeks 73
    Purchased 2 ebooks and enjoying them very much. However there are times when a page will not advance to the next one unless I exit and reopen the app. And when I open a book, it doesn’t open where I left off, it takes me back to beginning. Thankfully the bookmarks work, so that is of some help. Please update this system as I plan to purchase more books. Thanks so much and God bless.
  • Terrible app, Needs serious updating

    By Iphoneinredmond
    Why this app has to exist is questionable...why can’t the Ebook versions be published on Kindle? Why can’t I just download a PDF of the book I purchased. Regardless, this app is clunky and unresponsive. It took me multiple attempts to get the login box to even accept text so I could entire my name and password.
  • It’s okay

    By DJcash17
    I downloaded the app on my iPad and also read my books online at work. I noticed that when I take notes they do not transfer over to my app. This is frustrating as now I have to go back to purchasing actually books until this app can be updated.
