The full ESV Bible is now available for free for your iPhone or iPod Touch. And the great thing (besides it being free) is that you don’t even have to be connected to the internet to gain access to the application and its features.

Some of the features include:

  • Cross references and footnotes
  • Comprehensive concordance
  • Making your own notes in the application
  • Highlighting verses and saving those markers
  • And other such features

You can download the ESV application from iTunes.
