Posted on: April 18th, 2012 by Michelle Stramel 5 Comments

Now that we have made our PocketBible Bible software free (for every platform which we currently offer it), it is possible to enjoy and use PocketBible with no investment other than a little memory on your device. How do you get started?

First you need to choose a device type or operating system (OS). We currently offer PocketBible on the following platforms:

  • iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) – Start at the App store and search for PocketBible. Download the program to your device and register it the first time you go into the program. To download and install free or previously purchased Bibles and books, choose Menu | Add/Remove Books.
  • AndroidPocketBible for Android is currently in an alpha or pre-release form but is still being actively used by many of our customers. Click here for step-by-step instructions to download. Once you register in the program, you can download free or previously purchased Bibles and books using the My Library menu option.
  • Windows PC – start at our website and order PocketBible for Windows for free. You’ll also need to add some Bibles and books to your account when you place your order to use with the program.

  • Windows Mobile – not many people are still using these devices, but if you are, you’re in luck! Start at our website and order PocketBible 4 for Windows Mobile for free. You’ll also need to add some Bibles and books to your account when you place your order to use with the program. Once your order is complete, we’ll send you a confirmation email with instructions to download and install your software. (Note: This program will not work on Windows Phone 7 or later).
  • Palm OS – Technically, this is our MyBible software but it’s still free if you are using one of these older devices. Start at our website and order MyBible 5 for Palm OS for free. You’ll also need to add some Bibles and books to your account when you place your order to use with the program. Once your order is complete, we’ll send you a confirmation email with instructions to download and install your software.

    When are you going to put out a PocketBible for Windows Phone???????? If you could put one out, you would be the first Bible app that allows downloaded versions and people would jump on it.

    I meant to comment on this earlier but kept forgetting. I was very surprised by this move, in a good way. I’m pretty sure in an earlier post it was clearly stated that you would not make PocketBible free.

    Hopefully this change will get more people to try your product and purchase from your excellent (I think the best) selection of content available for any Bible software. I’ve been extremely impressed by the hyperlinks in all your references, your Bible Maps software, the Life Application Bible notes, and the ESV Study Bible.

    I’ve already been pointing some people who were only interested in free software to your software and I look forward to each iteration of your Android version of PocketBible that fixes a bug or adds a feature! Thank you for your hard work!

  3. Craig, glad you like the change and thanks for telling others about us.
