Barcelona, Spain – BCNmultimedia today is pleased to announce 3 months of Success in the App Store with the release of Children’s Bible 1.2 for iPhone and iPod touch. The full color Children’s Bible app tells the stories of the Old and New Testament in seven different languages and is the first comic book style Bible to be made available to iPhone and iPod touch users.
Dictionaries? Covered. Wikipedia? Getting there. The App Store even has Bibles now and entire Bible libraries, but its list of productivity and reference apps is far from complete. QuickOffice have brought forth an iPhone iteration of their popular mobile software which is specifically tweaked for the iPhone and iPod Touch. My wife and I tend to spend a goodly amount of time pouring over excel files both for her work and for our finances and I am a slowly doctoring myself into a Word junkie. I have been fortunate enough to use it now for about two weeks and feel that my experience with it is enough to finish an in-depth review. Look for that on Monday.
The number of useful references at the App Store is growing rapidly. Just months ago, was was no Enfour AHD4 or Deluxe Oxford nor had Amazon’s Kindle been released to provide competition for eReader and Stanza. Truly the iPhone as a platform is evolving: able to stand toe to toe in some applications with computers for its usefulness as a reference. What once was relegated to libraries because of size, weight, volume and expense can now be carried in one’s pocket. The Bible is a resource that I would like to be able to tote in a bag along with a dictionary but until now has been impossible. In the App Store, there are many free and commercial Bible apps that bump shoulders vying for your download or purchase. While many do their job commendably, it still is hard to separate the chaff from the wheat if your needs, beyond simple reading and devotions, demand resources other than the Bible itself.
