    Yes...sorry. I have this in my mind, but for now I'm focusing on some other features. After that I will add a local import for own XML files.

    Best Regards,

    No...BibleZ only support bibles that are free. As far as I know there is now free version of the NASB.

    I found that I didn't really like most of the English translations available on BibleZ for webOS, so I converted the ACV (public domain) and Geneva1599 into Zefania XML Bible Markup Language. Here are the links:


    If you could add these modules, then that would be awesome. Note that you can have the BibleZ module manager download them directly from my links if you wish. The HTTP server is running on a dedicated server attached to a 100Mbps backbone, with 2TB of allowed data transfer per month, and it usually never uses more than 1/10th of that.

    If you do not wish to add them, then I will try to patiently wait for you to add the ability to import modules manually.

    I just downloaded this app yesterday! Very nice thus far, thanks!
    In love with my launch day Pre Plus! Here are my impressions thus far.

    @gt500.org: Thank you very much. I upload the translations in my translation repository and they will be vailable with the next BibleZ update that I just submitted So you can read ACV and Geneva very soon on your Pre =)

    The Update also includes some little new features. Notes will be displayed inline and I speed up the module import a little bit.

    Regards,
    Stephan

    Spread the word!

    I will very much enjoy reading ACV and Geneva on my Palm Pre.

    BibleZ 0.6.2 is now in the AppCatalog.

    I think a search function would be a nice feature? Expect it in the next update

    I agree, that's one of two missing features that I would like to see.

    The other is the ability to add commentaries, such as John Gill, Matthew Henry, etc. I have been thinking of making an app with John Gill's commentary in it, but I have yet to play around with the development environment for webOS.

    Yes I thought about this. I will look a the available commentaries to see how they could integrate in BibleZ.

    BTW: BibleZ 0.6.3 with fulltext search is on the way!

    Very nice.

    BTW: I have been noticing lately that BibleZ seems to have high memory usage. It seems to get worse the longer it's open, and especially the more books/chapters you view. I assume that BibleZ is only loading a chapter a time when you select to display a chapter, and that some sort of garbage collection is supposed to remove whatever is not being displayed from memory? If so, then it may not be working right.

    Hello,

    there is a new video demo for BibleZ 0.6.4 that I submitted yesterday. Take a lock at what is new in 0.6.4!

    @gt500.org: There is a garbage collection, but that's the task of webOS. I know that there is room for optimizing and I will look a the memory issues soon.

    Greetings,

    Cool!

    I'd like to have a way to email myself (or someone else) a particular passage. Or maybe copy and paste into a memo. That way, I could paste that passage into my daily journal (or in my sermon notes for example, if I were a pastor). It would be great to be able to copy both the text and the location, e.g. Isaiah 53:1-7, followed by the text of that passage.

    I'll take that on my list.

    Great app! Love the search and note feature.

    Love this app, thanks!

    Been using this app on and off for a while now, but I must say that I love this app. I just really wish there was a way to get translations like NIV or NLT, but I know with a free app that won't be happening. Keep up the good work.

    Actually, the NET Bible (New English Translation) is a better paraphrase (they did studies with normal middle-class Americans when translating some of the harder stuff in order to see what wording was easiest to understand). Since the NET Bible is free for viewing online, then it might be possible to get it into BibleZ.

    Let me do some checking on the copyright terms, because there's a free NET Bible module for SWORD that I could convert for zefanja so that he could add it if they allow it.

    OK, I just checked the 'About' section in the SWORD module, and this is what it says:

    The NET BibleŽ, First Edition, is a completely new translation of the Bible (several millions of dollars, thousands of hrs volunteer labor across 10 yrs), not a revision or an update of a previous English version but was translated by biblical scholars who worked directly from the best currently available Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts The NET BibleŽ, contains over 63,000 notes. These notes are not like those in other bibles as has been attested to by bible scholars, Christian leaders, , pastors, lay leaders, and missionaries e.g. Kenneth L. Barker General Editor, NIV Study Bible and TNIV Study Bible says "The translators' notes, study notes, and text-critical notes alone are worth the price of the NET BibleŽ. Wayne Grudem a Member, Translation Oversight Committee, ESV said, "The extensive and reliable notes in the NET BibleŽ were a wonderful help to our translation team as we worked to prepare the English Standard Version." Charles Swindoll radio host of Insight for Living says, "The NET BibleŽ is a Bible you can trust. The translation is clear, accurate, and powerful. And the notes, those wonderful notes! They bring to the layman scholarly insights and discussions that have up till now been accessible only to those trained in the biblical languages. If you are serious about studying Scripture, get a copy of the NET BibleŽ." Dr. Tony Evans Senior Pastor and the host of The Urban Alternative, radio broadcast, says, "The complaint I hear from many Christians is that some of the translations of the Bible are too wooden. They are grammatically correct, but don't seem to convey the passion of the writer. On the flip side, some paraphrases and translations convey the passion of the writer at the cost of an accurate translation. The NET BibleŽ is the best of both worlds. The notes are helpful to the scholar and the layperson alike. This is the Bible for the next millennium.... " See other endorsements at http://www.bible.org/endorsements.

    Special note for Sword users: We have received many requests for the production of Sword modules. Therefore, in accordance with our ministry first approach, we have sponsored this project and made available both a "for free" module containing the full NET BibleŽ text with samples of the notes for each chapter, plus a full NET BibleŽ with all its 63,000+ notes as a premier "for pay" product at Free NET Bible and Thousands of Bible Studies | Bible.org - Worlds Largest Bible Study Site .

    If you would like to distribute the full notes version for ministry or bundle it onto CD's you are making for ministry or for sale or solicitation contact us http://www.bible.org/permission

    So, from what is in the description, it looks like zefanja would have to get permission to convert and use the NETfree module for SWORD into his XML format and add it to BibleZ.
