Get a peek at PocketBible for Windows

Posted on: August 10th, 2007 by Craig Rairdin 7 Comments

Want a sneak peak at PocketBible for Windows? No, we’re not offering you an early copy of PocketBible, but we have uploaded a draft of PocketBible’s online help. It contains screen shots (subject to change, of course), concepts, how-to’s, and other detailed information. Take a look and see what PocketBible for Windows will have to offer.

Here’s the link: The PocketBible Help File

Your browser may open the file directly, or may prompt you to download it to your PC. If you use IE7 and/or Vista, then you may need to “unblock” it. Download the file to your computer, right-click on it, choose Properties, then press the Unblock button.

    Not to rush you. but WHEN?

  2. Not to put you off, but soon.

    Beta 3 just went to the testers tonight. We anticipate at least one more beta release before the final release.

    We’re getting good results from the testers. They’re finding some good bugs. We’re also getting good comments from them about ease of use. Overall I think they’re really happy with it.

    There are a couple other tasks that need to be finished shortly after we ship PocketBible for Windows: First there will be a PocketBible for Pocket PC update to support synchronization. That will be followed by the release of the synchronization tools for the desktop and the Pocket PC. The order of events after that is yet to be seen but includes the iPocketBible for iPhone release and its associated synchronization provider, and a MyBible update for Palm OS and its synchronization provider.

    And that’s more information than we normally give out. We’re trying this new open-door policy with respect to pre-release details and hope you enjoy it.

    Craig, just wanted to know before I get too excited… Will there be an Apple version? I just switched over.

  4. It’s highly unlikely that we’re going to do a Mac version of PocketBible. These days it’s easy and affordable to set up your Mac to be dual-boot so you can run either Windows or Mac OS on the same machine.

    The other alternative is our iPhone product. The iPhone runs a version of the Safari Web browser. We actually do a lot of our testing using Safari. Once the iPhone product is released we’ll be modifying it to play well with desktop browsers. You could run iPocketBible on your Mac. You won’t be able to synchronize with a Palm or Pocket PC, though, since the sync software only runs on a Windows PC.

    I have only two questions!
    1 – When?
    2 – How Much?

    Looking forward to using my .lbk resources on the PC.

    Regards,
    Wayne

    Looks great to me. I have the ‘biggest and best’ Bible software on my PC and it is very clunky, hogs resources and takes for ever to open.
    Go for it! You can do better!

    I’m very much looking forward to this. I’ve always wanted a tool to sync my personal notes between the two machines, and it looks like this is it. Thanks for the heads up! :)
