Greek New Testament Available for PocketBible for Android

Posted on: November 2nd, 2015 by Craig Rairdin 4 Comments

As you may know, Laridian offers the SBL Greek New Testament for PocketBible on all platforms except Android. This was due to lack of decent Unicode support in Android before 4.4.

Now that we’re at the point where most of you are running Android OS 4.4 or later, we decided to go ahead and make the SBL Greek New Testament available for this platform. You’ll find it in your list of available downloads when you go to Download Books in the app.

If you’re running an earlier version of Android, you can still try installing and using this book, but you will find little rendering problems depending on your version of the operating system. We can’t do anything to fix these. And users of 4.4 and later may also discover little rendering issues but we’re not aware of anything major.

Thank you for your patience as we waited for the OS to mature. 🙂

    What dictionary works best with SBL Greek New Testament?
    AMG complete Word Study is open on desk top but when I hover, hold down left click, and select “look up xx” I get the note: ” an entry for (what ever the word was I hovered over)was not found in any of your dictionaries.

      We don’t have a Greek lexicon for PocketBible. The assumption is that you know what you’re reading, just like if you get one of our Spanish Bibles we assume we don’t have to teach you Spanish. 🙂 We would like to find a lexicon that we don’t have to type in from a printed book. It’s on our to-do list.

    Is there an Analytical Greek New Testament available for Pocket Bible, like the one by Barbara and Tim Friberg published by Baker that would give the grammatical analysis, like nominative, feminine, singular… etc.?

      We’re working on two such Greek NTs. One is based on Westcott and Hort and the other on the Byzantine text. They include Strong’s numbers and parsings.
