After a lengthy beta period, Android users can smile: PocketBible (from mobile Bible application stalwart Laridian) has finally hit the Android Play store.
Folks that became familiar with the application on PalmOS and WinMo will be happy to discover that accounts will still work, along with compatible materials (translations, books, plans, etc.) already owned. Additionally, it is still a great offline option post-download.
For new and legacy members alike, the Laridian store is as expansive as ever, with plenty of free materials for download. Of course, licensed materials from sources like Tyndale and Zondervan available for purchase as well.
The interface is clean, with theme options to customize color and font size. The navigation and search functions are minimalist and nature and lend to the robust feel of the application. The splitscreen functionality will be a pleaser, as the overall snappiness. I couldn’t find any bookmarking functionality during my cursory look, but if the beta was any indication, the developers are far from averse to adding features over time.
More options are always good; having a trusted name is even better.
Make sure to check out PocketBible for Android on the Google Play store!
