JW Library is the official application of Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW is the initials of Jehovah Witnesses), which includes a translated version of the Bible as well as a lot of books and pamphlets to study.
The content of the application is exactly what you would expect from the official Jehovah’s Witness app, and your members will surely be delighted with it. The application interface, in addition, is very correct, as it will allow us to move from the page by simply swiping the finger on the screen, or mark any page as favorite.
Other tools included within the application, which will make life much easier, are the search and the history. Thanks to the first we can quickly find any element we are interested in, while the second (the history) will give us the possibility to resume any previous reading.
JW Library is an application-oriented primarily to Jehovah’s Witnesses. Surely these will be delighted with both its content and its interface (which is very well worked).
Although we will continue to see the Watchtower Library 2013 on CD for installation on Windows PCs ( and with some help on Mac and Linux ) this year, technologies and trends have motivated the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization to develop a new application that allows users to enjoy the word of God, as well as study references and be able to strengthen their spirituality, at any time and wherever they are.
On October 7, 2013, Jehovah’s Witnesses launched an application to study the Bible: JW Library. With this new application, you can read the 2013 edition of the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures in English and five other Bible translations into English, including the American Standard Version and the King James Version. This was announced in the annual speech on 5 October.
It’s totally free. In order to obtain this application, the requirements must be clear. This new application is now available for iPad®, iPhone® and iPod Touch®, as well as devices with Android ™ 2.3 or higher, and for computers, tablets and phones running Windows 8, 8.1 plus Windows Phone 8, 8.1 and Windows 10. Make sure your Smartphone or Tablet has one of these operating systems. In the case of Windows 8, it is more versatile because this operating system can be installed on PC, Tablets, Laptops, MMini-laptops and Notebooks, which makes it possible to have the application on many more devices or platforms.
Includes six translations of the Bible. Future JW Library updates will allow users to download and study books, magazines, and Bible brochures.

Choose a translation of the Bible, then select a book from the Bible and in the specific chapter. Something nice is that it has been developed using the style “metro” or Windows 8 Style UI, even for platforms of Android or iPad, as it makes navigation more organized and modern.
While viewing a chapter, you can:
- Click on a verse number: Compare available versions of the Bible.
- Touch a note marker or letter of recommendation: See the material side associated with side with the biblical text.
- Move to the left: Move to the next chapter.
- Swipe Right: Move to the previous chapter.
Find the words and expressions that appear in the text of the Bible, and navigate to them directly. Sort the results by the order in which they appear in the Bible or in the frequency with which they are used in our publications.
Already allows us to highlight parts of the text, in four soft and different colors. It is not necessary to even shade the whole words to highlight, because the application will assume that the whole word is highlighted. Very comfortable.
can now follow up the Life and Ministry meetings, from the application, and even prepare ourselves. It also allows us to sing the songs from the same program, without having to go out to select the songbook.
