The developers of Glo Bible app has recently released a new video that highlights the features that it offers to users who are looking for diverse Biblical resources.

According to Glo Bible's official website, the main feature of the application is its ability to connect several forms of media with scripture.

The application allows its users to access different resources, such as videos, artwork, sermons and commentaries, based on a single Bible verse. The premium content offers resources from different publishers such as Zondervan, Intervarsity Press, Crossway and pastors such as Francis Chan.

Users can also publish their own videos, sermons and reading plans through its Content Creation feature.

The goal of the developers is to make every Bible translation available in the application, but it currently does not offer the New International Version and the New King James Version because of publisher rights. The application is free, but users can purchase premium content that is updated regularly.

The creators have set up a crowdfunding page to fund the continuing development of the application. It currently has 1,761 backers who have pledged over $82,000, surpassing its original goal of $50,000.

The application was originally designed for the desktop, but it has been developed to cater to mobile users. It became available for the Android platform on Nov. 15, 2016.

The creators are careful in selecting the content to publish in the application. The team is currently working on ways to screen the resources that will be made available on the platform, according to the website.

"Right now we are partnering with the most reputable scholars, pastors and content creators but as we scale we plan on opening up the publishing platform to others. We recognize that content will need to be vetted and are working on formalizing how this is done," a statement on the website reads.

In their statement of faith, the developers acknowledged that the Bible is "the inspired, infallible, authoritative, and the inerrant Word of God."

Another part reads: "We believe in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of the human nature, and that all are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ, and that only by God's grace through faith alone are we saved."
