For memorizing bible verses or scripture memory try the Fighter Verses app. It’s very affordable and it’s a high quality app that continues to be improved with lots of new features. It comes with a ton of carefully chosen verses preloaded; it has songs, spoken audio, quizzes, blog commentary, and many other features. I highly recommend it!
