    Well, that's the nice thing about e-books. You have easy access to all kinds of information and opinions. The more access people have to knowledge, the better equipped they are to interact with the world. Knowledge never hurt anyone but ignorance sure has.

    But to each his own. You like paper, I like a screen. Hopefully we can avoid turning this into an e-reader debate.
    Oh no, I had a Bible app for my iPhone back in the day, loved it. I'm just saying, if it's the only option, for Classic (which I'm thinking it won't be), than It's benificial for me to keep my bible, vs spending money on Classic. I was never a fan of PalmOS

    Also, if you have a PDF version of your specific bible, the Pre already has a PDF reader.

    Other than that, nothing's been announced, but it's likely it'd appear, as just what everyone else said, it's very easy to create.
    Um no.. that's pointless IMO.

    There's so much more to a Bible program than just reading. Searching (including complex searches, boolean, either/or, proximity, case, etc) is an important tool that Bible programs bring that simple readers may or may not be able to satisfy. Then there's the ability to view original language texts, multiple translations (often parallel views), commentaries, dictionaries, highlighting, bookmarks, etc. So hopefully someone will step up to the plate and write a native app for Bible study/reading/etc for the Pre. Personally I'd love for Laridian to be that "someone" but based on their recent blog entries (at blog.Laridian.com) I'm not so sure. But I know someone will step in.

    Have you tried BibleGateway.com? It's a pretty feature-rich site, and has a mobile version. (Tried to post the link, but I can't because I'm too new)

    Of course, with Laridian, you can highlight, bookmark, etc., and then save your notes. You'll be able to carry all of this to the Pre with Classic - all except local sync, right? Also, if Laridian develop's a webOS version, you may even be able to import the saved data. Laridian has developed for just about every platform, including WinMo, Blackberry, etc. I can't imagine that they wouldn't move forward with a webOS version.

    I'm very familiar with BibleGateway.com: A searchable online Bible in over 100 versions and 50 languages. and have used it a lot. I also like My Bible Study Tools from My Bible Study Tools - Personalized Online Bible Study and Bible Reading - excellent stuff. I'm excited about Genesis 1 ASV - YouVersion.com: Online Bible also and since they have an iPhone app, I'm hoping they'll release a webOS app.

    I know that we will be able to use the mobile versions of these sites, but there's just something about a native app. Thanks for the input!

    I did not ask that question, all the info I could pull out during the brief conversation, was yes we will be supporting the new palm OS, I said the Web OS for Palm PRE, answer yes. I said when? answer in near future, I asked by end of year, answer was yes. That is all I know, but that is a good sign they plan to make a Bible Reader app for Web OS. My guess it is not to hard to do since they support almost every other smart phone out there.

    After hearing that OliveTree is coming to the Pre, but that it could be a few months till we see something, does anyone know if MyBible is coming to the Pre?

    THanks

    That would not make sense. It would be much better if they just allowed those of us who have already purchased non-free versions from them to re-download the same in Pre form.

    Does someone actually know the address of biblegateway.com's mobile site?

    I contacted them 2-3 weeks ago and they wouldn't speculate about future developments. They have recently posted an update that MyBible was compatible with Classic:

    Laridian Electronic Publishing Laridian, Classic and Palm Pre

    I'm hoping they will port a native webOS version as I like their products.

    Just thought you all would like to know that there are a lot of bible web apps listed on the apple web app site (since I cannot yet post links, just google "web app"). Many of them work great on the Pre. Just search for them.
