Posted on: May 10th, 2013 by Michelle Stramel No Comments

We’re happy to announce that version 2 of PocketBible for Windows Phone is now available for free download at the Windows Phone Store.

For those using the standard edition of Windows Phone, you’ll find many usability enhancements including better images in the cloud library, being able to pause and resume downloading via buttons in the cloud library, improvements in back button behavior (set this to exit program if you’d like) and more.

For those using the Advanced Feature set with PocketBible for Windows Phone, a major new feature is the ability to synchronize your data including bookmarks, notes, highlights and reading progress with the Laridian server and other devices running PocketBible.

If you have a Windows Phone 8 device and are using Advanced Features you can take advantage of the great new voice capabilities of PocketBible. Have the program read Bibles and books outloud to you. Or use voice commands to launch PocketBible and open it at a specific verse.

Version 2 of PocketBible for Windows Phone is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. Advanced Features can be purchased from within the app for only $6.99.

New for PocketBible: Wiersbe’s Expository Outlines

Posted on: May 9th, 2013 by Michelle Stramel No Comments

Wiersbe's Expository OutlinesNew for use with PocketBible and MyBible, Wiersbe Expository Outlines are two volumes that are designed to guide you through a systematic study of the entire Bible.

Based on Bible studies that were originally designed for use with Dr. Warren Wiersbe’s own church, the studies were put in book form after many years of being tested “in the field.” They are ideal for personal study as well as for use with Sunday School classes and Bible study groups that want to examine God’s Word in a systematic manner.

The volumes can be purchased separately for the Old Testament or New Testament or as a bundle of both.

Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe is an internationally known Bible teacher and the former pastor of three churches, including the Moody Church in Chicago. For ten years he served as general director and Bible teacher for the Back to the Bible radio broadcast.

Also available for use in PocketBible are Wiersbe’s Bible Commentaries. This set of commentaries is based on Dr. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” series.
