JW Theocratic Software and Apps for Microsoft Windows, Google Android and Apple iOS [Updated]

The goal of this page is simple. It is to compile all those useful Theocratic software and apps that we Jehovah's Witnesses use. We will list them, describe them (if we can), and provide you details on where you can download and install them. At times, we may provide how-tos and tutorials too.

These JW software and apps are there to organize, simplify and automate some of our Theocratic tasks. Most of these apps are not produced, provided nor endorsed by the branch. But, almost all of them are created by our brothers around the world with one goal in mind, again, to organize, simplify and automate our tasks.

Microsoft Windows, Google Android, Linux, Apple MacOS and Apple iOS are some of the most popular operating systems (OS) that are used today. There are JW apps that works on only one OS, but there are some of which you can install on two or more platforms.
