RomansRoad eTract Updated for iPad

Posted on: April 30th, 2010 by Craig Rairdin 3 Comments

Our RomansRoad eTract for iPhone has been updated for full iPad compatibility. If you already use RomansRoad on your iPhone or iPad, iTunes will notify you that the update is available.

When the new iPad SDK (software development kit) was released, I used the RomansRoad project as a means to learn and experiment with some of the new features provided on the iPad. Since the RomansRoad is a relatively simple application, it proved to be an ideal platform for learning and experimenting with some of the new capabilities and preparing for our PocketBible update to support the iPad. In fact, the RomansRoad eTract has been iPad compatible since before the iPad launch date, but due to some hiccups with the submission process and the fact that we’ve been so busy making PocketBible for iPhone/iPad so awesome, it’s just now available.

RomansRoad is what’s called a “universal binary”, which means that the same program runs on an iPhone or an iPad, though the features on each may differ. (For instance, on the iPad, a table of contents is shown when the iPad is rotated into a landscape orientation.) Since it is a universal binary, you won’t look for “RomansRoad eTract for iPhone” and “RomansRoad eTract for iPad” on the AppStore. You’ll just look for “RomansRoad eTract.”

Frankly, I find that the RomansRoad eTract is much more visually appealing on an iPhone than on the iPad. However, the truth of the gospel transcends the glitzy appearance (or lack thereof)!

The RomansRoad eTract is available on the Apple AppStore.

    I think the RomansRoad eTract looks great on BOTH the iPhone and iPad, nice job! Also FYI, The first thing I do every morning when I wake up and the last thing I do before I go to bed at night is check to see if PocketBible for the iPad has been approved yet. One of these days soon I just know I’m going to wake up to a pleasant suppress! I just can’t wait….. but Im doing my best 🙂

    P.S. Have you given any thought of changing the name of PocketBible to something else since the iPad won’t fit in the pocket. I often hold it in my armpit, but I don’t suppose ArmPit Bible sounds to appealing huh? 😉 Well… at least it’s close to my heart!
