PocketBible for Windows Now Available

Posted on: August 21st, 2007 by Craig Rairdin 45 Comments

I’m happy to announce that PocketBible for Windows is now available at our Web site.

We’ll be sending emails to existing customers over the next 2-3 days with a discounted price of $19.99. Regular retail price is $29.99. If you can’t wait we’d be happy to accept the extra $10. :-)

Any books you’ve already purchased for MyBible or PocketBible will entitle you to download the same books for your Windows PC. The only exception is the Ancient Christian Commentary Series, which we’re prohibited from distributing on the desktop until some date in the future. We’re trying to remedy that because it’s a great commentary series and we’d like to see more people using it.

We’ve mentioned it before but one of the cool options you have for another $19.99 is receiving your entire PocketBible for Windows library on a USB flash memory drive. You can still download now for immediate satisfaction, but then we’ll send you everything in your download account (including existing purchases plus anything you purchase at the time you place your USB flash drive order) that is compatible with PocketBible for Windows on one USB drive, complete with custom Laridian lanyard.

Just a reminder: If you have technical questions, send them to Tech Support through the Help Desk at our Web site. Don’t post them here. There are several reasons: First, by going through the Help Desk you may find that your question is already answered. Second, your question will get directly to our tech support department without depending on one of them to wander in and read the blog comments. Finally, there are people who subscribe to these blog comments and you’re just clogging up the comments with issues that only pertain to you. Just so you know, even though all comments to this blog are moderated, we always approve the tech support questions that get posted here just so people can laugh at you behind your back. :-)

OK one major new product down. Several more to go…

Get a peek at PocketBible for Windows

Want a sneak peak at PocketBible for Windows? No, we’re not offering you an early copy of PocketBible, but we have uploaded a draft of PocketBible’s online help. It contains screen shots (subject to change, of course), concepts, how-to’s, and other detailed information. Take a look and see what PocketBible for Windows will have to offer.

Here’s the link: The PocketBible Help File

Your browser may open the file directly, or may prompt you to download it to your PC. If you use IE7 and/or Vista, then you may need to “unblock” it. Download the file to your computer, right-click on it, choose Properties, then press the Unblock button.

PocketBible Moves to the Desktop

Posted on: August 3rd, 2007 by Craig Rairdin 47 Comments

As many of you have already seen in a recent newsletter, PocketBible software will be coming soon to your Windows desktop. The newsletter was somewhat vague about features so I thought I’d take a few minutes to provide some details.

Briefly, PocketBible for Windows is the desktop version of our PocketBible software. It uses the same LBK file format as our PocketBible program for Pocket PC, but adds a tiled user interface with windows for your Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, devotionals, and other books. You can hover your mouse cursor over any Bible reference to instantly see the text of that verse. And of course you can search, annotate, highlight, and bookmark the text just like on your PDA.
