Pocket e-Sword was the bible study software in my previous PDA ~ HP iPAQ rz1710 Pocket PC. However, it does not work so well with HTC HD2. Therefore, a search for new bible software on Windows Mobile 6.5 is on. And I found rbBible. It is a finger friendly bible application but still in beta stage.
It supports 2 sets of bible translation which are King James Version (KJV) and New English Translation (NET). And it is currently on v0.2 and going to evolve to be better. Can’t wait for that. Because lot of improvement can be done like page navigation and gesture scrolling. No need to wait for the final version. Try it now. And remember read bible often.
Download rbBible v0.2 here.
i like to use m.youversion.com. I save the bookmark then I just make a shortcut on the home tab and wa la! It loads pretty fast and youversion has TONS of versions including NIV and The Message.
Lucky you but I don’t have any of those fancy techno things like ipads, iphones ect. It does however sounds like a good thing to have a Bible app. so one can read part of the Bible at anytime they should feel like reading it. To your success, and very nice blog you have here. jj
I, too, am on the search for a WinMo 6.5 bible app to replace Pocket E-Sword, which was by far the best mobile bible app out there for winmo phones. The only problem is I’m interested in version NIV, ESV, and NKJV versions, and those aren’t available yet. And, sadly, because WinMo 6.5 will be eclipsed by WinMo 7.0, there’s probably not a groundswell of support for developing new software for WinMo6.5, even if it is a bible. . . . .
My current phone is a tilt2, which runs PocketE-Sword kinda okay. The resolution obscures some of the scroll bar entries, but I’m able to figure it out. Plus, the tilt2 still has an old-school stylus to tap that REALLY TINY “OK” button to open the scripture. But I concur, a native winMo 6.5 bible app would be wonderful.
