Frequently Asked Questions

When will Dwell be available?

We’re targeting late Spring 2018 for the launch of the App!

Will there be an Android version?

Yes! Our target launch date for Android is early 2019. One of our Stretch Goals is to accelerate the release of our Android App to late Fall 2018!

What version of the Bible will be read in the App?

We are starting with the English Standard Version and will expand to more in the near future. The goal is to have many versions, languages and voices.

How much will it cost to download Dwell?

The app itself is free to download, and can be used with limited features. You’ll be able to access all the awesome features and voices by subscribing monthly or annually.

Why subscription, not a one time fee?

We’ll have a monthly subscription and an annual subscription that you can choose from. The reason for the subscription versus a one-time payment is that it allows us to keep recording more translations of the Bible, more languages, and more voices. We will be adding new features and updates often. We have lots of great ideas for Dwell and so we want to make sure the business model can help us accomplish that.

What is the difference between Dwell and other Bible reading apps that have listening component?

The Bible app you use definitely has nailed the reading experience, but we believe the listening experience hasn't been nailed, until now! We have genuine voices, original music by Steinway artist & composer Chad Lawson, and the app itself doesn't feel like your average Bible app. You can dive into the Bible from multiple jumping-off points, like stories, key passages, themed playlists, or listening plans.

Is there a way to "bookmark" where you stop listening to pick up there the next time?

Yes, the app will keep up with where you left off. Plus, you can mark Passages, Playlists, Stories, etc as Favorites.

What features will be available in the free version? Will you be able to access the whole Bible?

We haven't completely decided on what will be limited with the free version You will have access to the whole Bible, but some of the features and/or voices may not be available to the free version.

Does the audio stream require a constant Internet connection, and/or will there be a way to listen offline?

Offline listening won't be available at launch, but that is a feature we would love to add in the future!

Am I able to change the speed of the reading?

Yes, you will have the ability to change the listening speed.

How can I hear more samples?

How will the digital rewards, like wallpapers and albums, be delivered?
