More on Iphone

The Olive tree came up with an interesting update on their Bible  program for Iphone yesterday: now it is possible to split the screen and have two versions available. This is a feature I had on my Palm, but so far, it has not been available on Iphone.  In fact it is so new that their webpages do not reflect it yet. They speak about version 4.5, but this is version 4.6.

Have a look at it yourself. In my opinion, Olive tree has the best Bible program for Iphone; they even have a Norwegian translation of the Bible available, but, alas, not the most common and official version from the Norwegian Bible society, but a ‘private’ version. This is probably due to copyright issues. I hope the Norwegian Bible Society will get up, and be more involved in promoting their translation for digital applications.

Bible on Iphone?

I have got myself an Iphone 2 (3g), and like it very much. I have also downloaded some additional programs, among them the ESVStudy Bible Bundle, and the CCEL NRSVA. Both works fine, especially the first, which also has a search functuion.

But I wonder if you have any Bible versions that you find working fine on an Iphone. In particular I would like to have NT in Greek, but have not found any versions available yet.

Which Bible Iphone-version do you prefer?


I am happy to see in a comment below that are working on making the Greek NT and Hebrew Bible available on Iphone. I enjoy their Bible Bundle that is available so far, and look forward to be able to include Greek and Hebrew too.

But what abaout Philo? Is anybody thinking about adding him? He is available on Palm (see, but as I find Iphone more useful, I hope that both Philo and other texts will be made available for that medium.
