By default, PocketBible offers specific touch zones depending on whether you are in a Bible or other type book. Bible touch zones include options to move by page, verse or chapter as well as moving to the next/prev open book. Non-Bible Book touch zones include options to move by page and to change books. To view navigation options for the current active book, tap in the center of the book and a temporary navigation overlay/guide will appear.
The Advanced Feature Set adds an option to Customize Touch Zones under the Settings menu. With this option, you are able to customize touch zones down to the book level (i.e. Bible, Devotionals, other), but we also include a set of pre-defined configurations. Here are suggested alternatives but feel free to try them all and see what works best for you:
- If you find yourself swiping instead of tapping to move through a book, try the Alternative Default (option 2)
- If you like the default touch zones but sometimes change books when you meant to move to the next page, try the Defaults with No Book Changes (option 3)
- If you like swiping up to move through books but inadvertently change books, try the Alt Defaults with No Book Changes (option 4). To change books, tap on the title bar in the open window.
Watch the video below to see how to use this customization feature. It shows how to setup PocketBible so that swiping up will move you through the Bible (rather than changing books).
