Managing your Books in PocketBible

Posted on: November 6th, 2013 by Michelle Stramel 5 Comments

PocketBible for AndroidAll of our PocketBible smartphone and tablet apps (Android, Windows Phone/Store and iOS) have a similar feature you can use to quickly move from one book to the other.

Tap on the title bar in a pane and you’ll get a drop-down list of what you have open in that pane. This works the same way in each pane you have open. From there you can tap on the title of another book in the list to move to it; you may be able to close a book or open another book as well (varies by OS). This simple way of managing books makes it easier to get your panes setup like you want as you study the Bible.

Here is a quick video demonstration of this feature using PocketBible for Android:

On my phone, I like to use two panes and keep my Bibles in one pane and my other type books in the second pane. I also have my apps set to sync books by verse so that my Bibles and commentaries always stay on the same verse. On my iPad, I use tabs for each category of book so I can quickly switch between type of book but when I am in a particular tab, like Bibles, I can use the title bar to quickly switch between my different Bibles.

  1. HAHA! I have been doing this on the android platform since Jon put that out for testing. I had not realized you could do this on the iPad until now. Thanks for the hint!

    I’d like to see the X (close a book) feature on the iPhone. It seems to do everything the Android version does, but you can’t, that I can tell, close a book without going to the main menu.

    Nice video. Make more!

    I have Android 4.3, & the latest version of PocketBible. Through several versions of PB, when either changing books or using the 3-tap to go to a specific verse, it doesn’t go to that verse. The beginning of the chapter may be at the bottom of the screen, but it doesn’t actually go to the correct verse.

    Thanks for the updates, and I look forward to the finished product.
