I was doing some blog housekeeping this afternoon and realized we hadn’t updated you on the progress on Simple Bible Pro for quite some time.
Last time I wrote on this subject we had a “Memorandum of Understanding” with Bits of God Software regarding our work together on this project. Since then, that has developed into a full-blown contract that commits us to providing Simple Bible Pro users access to their download accounts on our server so that they can download any Bible or reference book they have purchased from us and use it in Simple Bible Pro.
The guys at Bits of God Software are doing all the programming. We have regular conference calls and email exchanges in which we provide them with the reams of technical information that is required to interface with our server and read our files. Actually, it’s not that tough and only takes a couple dozen pages to explain. But it takes time to implement and test, and that’s what the Bits of God Software guys are working on.
The plan is to implement Bibles first and get that version of Simple Bible Pro into your hands as soon as possible. From there additional types of reference content will be added, and more advanced features will be implemented. I imagine there will be a number of frequent updates in the first couple of months the program is available so that these features can be rolled out as they’re added.
