And now for the true story of the value behind the purchase.
We, Bits of God Software, don't sell the Bibles, Laridian, Inc does. Laridian has a buy it once, use it forever policy. We have several users that bought bibles from them 5 to 10 years ago and were able to download those Bibles for free once our app became available. Right now they have Bible apps on webOS, iOS, android, PalmOS, Blackberry and windows mobile. I think wp7 is in the works.
So, if you buy a Bible for use with Simple Bible Pro on webOS and then a year from now, dump webOS for an Android or iOS device, you can download PocketBible and then you'll have offline access to the same Bible for no additional charge.
Also, we are starting to work on syncing of Bookmarks, Notes and Highlights with laridian. Once that is in place, you will be able to take those items with you to the next platform as well.
As you can see the value goes way beyond, your initial purchase. One more note about the NIV on webOS. You only have 3 options for the NIV on webOS.
- YouVersion, which requires an internet connection.
- Kindle, I'm unaware of the prices, but keep in mind, kindle is a book reader, not a bible reader. It is not designed for quick navigation to Book CH:Vrs like our Bible readers are.
- Simple Bible Pro.
