Description

ReadingPlan helps you track your progress as you read through the Bible. You can start a plan at any time, progressing at your own rate or on the schedule dictated by the plan. You can optionally link to an online bible site to see the day's readings in the application's built-in web view, or launch a native bible app (if supported.) Five plans are installed by default; many more are available for download from within the app, or you can create your own.

 Free in iOS App Store
