Bible Software Updates

Catching up on some stuff...

  • The latest Christian Computing Magazine (CCM) has an updated review of PocketBible for Windows. In addition to many of the features you normally would expect with Bible software, the main strength of this program is the synchronization of annotations and bookmarks between the desktop and PDA versions. I also like the fact that it can be run from a USB FlashDrive and can even be ordered on such a drive. Prices start at $30 for the program alone, but will quickly rise as you order bundled or other resources. This is a nice program, but it really is not designed for original language study.
  • CCM also is advertising a special offer for a limited edition of Bible Explorer 4. Regularly $65, it is on sale for $16 (or $10 for 5+ copies). (This does indeed appear to be a special offer whose pricing you cannot otherwise get by following links on their web site.) It is more of a popular as compared to a more academic program like their companion WORDsearch7 program, but you can check the contents of the package HERE. I've downloaded the free edition which has only a few books but plenty of free, public domain resources that can be added. It has a decent interface, and with the purchase of a few more books may be all the program some people need.
