PocketBible for Android version 1.0.9 has been released on the Google Play Store. If you downloaded the app from Google Play, you should be automatically updated. If you are using a Kindle Fire (or other non-Google Play device), you can download the latest version by browsing to http://lpb.cc/android while on your device.
The major new features in 1.0.9 are the ability to add bookmarks to verses and a new navigation menu. The full list of features includes:
- Bookmark Bible verses. Organize bookmarks with categories you define. Sync bookmarks with the Laridian cloud.
- Navigation menu for easy access to downloading books, settings, etc. Additional side panel added for tablets.
- Double-tap for full screen
- Improved verses selection
- Multi-user installation
The new bookmark feature is available from the contextual action bar (where you are already able to highlight). When you tap on a verse, you’ll have the option to highlight or bookmark. Bookmarks can be viewed from the navigation menu or side panel (for tablets). Tapping on the PocketBible icon (upper left) will give you quick change options on the navigation menu.
