I have OliveTree's Bible Reader on my Palm T/X and will probably put it on my iPod Touch once it arrives. Bible Reader is well done. I'm surprised no one has mentioned it. There will even be a "fuller" version out down the road for the iPod Touch (or iPhone).

Olive Tree's Bible Reader was released for the iPhone/iPod Touch yesterday. The initial module offerings are few, but they are in the process of moving most if not all of their rather large library to iPhone format. This includes their original language texts including the Greek NT with Gramcord morphology.

I have an initial review of Olive Tree's Bible Reader for the iPhone on This Lamp.

I voted for the iPhone version of Accordance in another thread, but I'll add it again here. I'd note Bruji seems to have the right idea with their Pocketpedia. It is a free addition that syncs over wi-fi with Bookpedia, CDPedia, etc. But, for that matter, while opting for a free version would be hard to complain about, it'd be fine with me if I had to pay something for Accordance for iPhone. The main thing I'd like to see is some sort of module syncing to avoid having to buy modules I already own again for some other Bible software. Plus, I trust that anything Accordance puts out will be worth using...

I have Bible Reader on my Palm T3, and I'll probably get it for the iPhone (I have one on order). But if Accordance came out with the ability to sync with my iMac, I'd almost certainly buy it. Yes, I'm willing to pay for a premium product.

Amen to that. I just got my iPhone and Pocketpedia works great! I hope Accordance can pull this off...

Any chance we can get a word from the Oak Tree developers on this? I'm pondering buying OliveTree's Bible Reader now that it can sync its Bibles with the ones purchased directly from Olive Tree. Yet, I can't help but keep thinking how nice it would be if the same sort of arrangement could be had with Accordance -- either sync'ing with the Accordance server or (better yet, as I mentioned before) building some sort of simple server into Accordance 8 so that the local computer would sync modules with the iPhone as the *Pedias do with PocketPedia.

It would still be great not to have to repurchase modules -- great enough to easily justify a relatively high pricetag for a simple, lightweight reader -- say, $30-$40.

Somehow I just know as soon as I decide to buy OliveTree's product Oak Tree will announce Accordance for iPhone is coming. ;)

Has any one got around to using Mantis Study Bible yet?

I've been using various free bibles, and had used Mantis when it first came out. But I later deleted it in favor of bibles like YouVersion and Bible Reader. Later I found myself sitting in church wanting to follow the notes in my NetBible and comparing that to other versions, so now I'm looking to go back to Mantis.

They've upgraded it a lot since I've used it and now I'm thinking very seriously about investing in "modules" for Mantis. However, if Accordance is even remotely thinking about letting us use at least some of the modules I've already invested in, I don't want to waste money.

One of my biggest gripes with these programs is that I can't sync my notes to my desktop. The other must have bibles for my method of study are NET, KJVS, AMP and Message as well as paralleling ESV, NASB, Hollman, and others.

I've looked at BibleXpress, but it doesn't have my "must-haves" yet, and of course Mantis doesn't have AMP yet. Sometimes I don't get a good signal depending on where I sit (or where the ushers sit me), so having a bible stored on the phone is awesome.

What say ye?

Sorry, we really have nothing definite to report yet, although we are considering developing an iPhone app. This is not a simple venture and will take some time even if we do embark on it.

Well I have been putting Mantis through the paces and have bought a few modules and I must say, it has definitely won my vote for now.

Inline notes are great. Highlighting and adding notes is cool.
Navigation while reading in church is number 1, and here's the kicker:

I exported my notes from Accordance and added them to my notes in Mantis via their website. So now I can manage and edit my notes via a web interface and keep my notes with me on my phone! I'm not into greek and hebrew but they seem to have good facilities for advanced users as well.

I can see a desktop bible software developer teaming up with them to provide a one stop shop since it looks like they've really put a lot of work into this program. Version 4 is coming out soon and I can't wait.

I too would like Accordance for the iPhone. No, I don't expect to be able to do much in the way of complex searches, but I'd sure like to be able to read any of my Bibles, do a simple search, or read some of the other "Christian classic" modules I own while waiting in line for whatever...

I own a Palm and use eReader for my fiction books. I love being able to read them on my Palm, my laptop or my desktop computer without purchasing a different version of the book for each platform.

My ideal? Purchase a new "AccordanceLite" engine for the iPhone that would let me read any of the modules I already own for Accordance. Of course, since I don't have an iPhone yet, I'd enjoy just such an app for my Palm... :rolleyes:
Blessings,

Is there any news or plans at all for the iPhone?

I find I am beginning to spend money for Hebrew and Greek texts and other resources from a couple of companies for iPhone Bible programs. I really don't want to repurchase tools for my iPhone that I already have in Accordance, but I am beginning to consider doing so in order that I might have access to them on an occasional basis when the MBPro isn't near by.

I don't really think we need deep search functionality on the iPhone, but it would be nice with a gesture to see a verse in parallel with the original language, a commentary or a concordance.

What tools are you purchasing from whom for the iPhone? I, too, am purchasing Bible study applications for the iPhone and would love to know what you have found helpful thus far. I have been waiting for Accordance to come up with something since the iPhone was announced. I guess I'm getting impatient!!!

Mantis Study Bible has been a blessing to me so far, but I understand about paying for multiple tools for different platforms. Anyway, one good thing about it, I was able to export my notes from Accordance and get them into Mantis Study Bible for iPhone.

Olive Tree has Bible Reader. I like it because there are options for background and text colors. There are many public domain texts available for free and they have a pointed BHS text available.

On the other hand, Mantis has a super fast gesture system for accessing different texts, books, chapters, and verses. They have a drill down system using Strongs and NAS which is tied to Thayers and BDB. In addition with two touches you can view a verse in parallel Greek and English.

I know the Accordance programing team could do it so much better.

I know I'm just anxious because that other Bible software company put out an iPhone app this last week but where does Accordance stand on developing for the iPhone/iPod Touch platform? Thanks! I really appreciate the solid, non-Alpha, software...

I've used the OTHER guys stuff for two days now and their iPhone App is awesome, especially how it integrates with the desktop version! I so wish there was something like this for Accordance!

Olive Tree Software's Bible Reader is the excellent, mature bible app option for iPhone.
You should definitely give it a try.
