Update on Simple Bible Pro for webOS

Posted on: February 6th, 2011 by Craig Rairdin 2 Comments

We just got an update from Bits of God Software regarding their progress on Simple Bible Pro, their webOS BIble program that is going to be compatible with Bibles and other content from Laridian. With this announcement from them and the upcoming announcement on February 9 of new products from HP/Palm, this is an exciting time if you’re a fan of webOS.

Here’s the news from Bits of God Software:

As it stands we have a working beta. Simple Bible Pro can accept your Laridian customer account, login, download your purchased Bible content from Laridian, and present it for reading. We are currently working on the layout as well as tweaking some of the features such has highlighting, notes, bookmarks and search. As many of you have hoped, we are keeping the layout as similar to Simple Bible as we can.

So, you have all this Laridian content, you’re a fan of Simple Bible and you are wondering when Simple Bible Pro will be released. It’s always tricky to speculate on release dates in the software business. We never know what roadblocks life or the software may hand us, thus messing up our timetables. With that in mind, we’d like you to know that we are planning a beta test of Simple Bible Pro starting in March.

We have a short list of people who have requested to be beta testers. However we are currently accepting applications for more. If you are interested in participating in the Simple Bible Pro beta test, please send us an email at info@bitsofgodsoftware.com. Tell us a little about yourself. Be sure to include information about your technical savvy, what webOS device you are currently using and your history with webOS, Simple Bible and Laridian Products. We don’t plan to invite more than a couple dozen users to the beta test. Please don’t be upset if you are not contacted to participate.

    I am wondering if the announcement that HP made on 2/9/2011 makes any difference to your plans for how to support WebOS? After HP spent nearly two hours showing off their new phones and TouchPad, they stunned most of the world by announcing the following:
    “I’m excited to announce our plans to bring the WebOS to the device that has the biggest reach of all: the personal computer,” Bradley said. And with that, many in the tech industry stopped wondering whether the TouchPad was really good enough to compete with the iPad and started wondering about how the world has been changed.
    “All together that’s 100 million devices with webOS deployed annually,” Bradley said. “That’s the start of something pretty big.”
    With that announcement, I expect quite a bit of development to be going on in the very near future.
    I just wonder if that influences Laridian in any way?
