For the first time, readers of Ellen White’s books can read them on their iPhone and iPad. The app from the White Estate now makes all of White’s published writings available.

“The new app from the White Estate includes all 412 books written by White,” said Darryl Thompson, assistant director of the Ellen G. White Estate. The app also features search ability of the entire White library, a King James Version of the Bible and Webster’s contemporary 1828 dictionary. It also allows users to create notes to share via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter. Additionally, every Bible verse reference is hyperlinked.

During her lifetime she wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles and 40 books

The Estate has also released EGW Lite, with content based on 10 of White’s most popular books, Thompson said. The lite app was created for users with limited storage devices or 3G coverage.

Despite her limited education, Ellen White was one of America’s most prolific writers and authors. During her lifetime she wrote more than 5,000 periodical articles and 40 books. Some of her more popular books include Steps to Christ, The Desire of Ages, and The Great Controversy which have been published in more than 140 languages.

The White Estate is developing an Android version for release later this year. For more information on the White Estate app, visit whiteestate.org.
