Having a bible on your bag wherever you go is OK but making it handy is great! For instance, you received a SMS/MMS message indicating a bible verse you didn’t know not unless you’ll take a quick look on your bible. Not everybody has bible at home or you’re far away at home (just in case you have one), no choice but to wait until you get home. Right? That’s the idea of having it handy and this is just one of the many scenarios that you need a bible handy.
I’m using S60Bible v2-0.98 installed at the moment, its a free mobile application to download. There are many versions available even for the latest symbian phones, you can check this link for other versions. I was using the older version 0.95 before when I started making my bible handy. What’s new with this version that I love is the changeable font color, font style and background color. And also the copy verse feature in which you can copy the bible verse to your notes and send it via SMS/MMS to your friends later.
The first screenshot is the default page, I’ve made some color changes on the third screenshot to show you an idea how would it look like. BUT, expect your color configuration to turn back to default which is the first screenshot when you use it on heavy continuos reading, I’ve experienced it myself.
Anyway, the application itself is just a bible reader, you still have to download the bible pdb files. Palm doc or pdb formats are free to download. You can have as many bible versions as you want but remember they are big files approximately 1.7 mb+, I have KJV and Tagalog versions on my symbian phone, saved on “Document” folder of memory card. You can saved the pdb files wherever you want, the application will search for the pdb bible files.
To search for pdb bible files, click option > Bible > Update Bible List
To shift to another bible version, click option > Bible > Select Bible
