Ron, at this time we only have whole verse highlighting. We do have partial verse or word-based highlighting on our request list for consideration in the future. Thanks for letting us know that is something you'd like to see in PocketBible!

Highlights are done by verse in the Bible. That is, you can highlight entire verses, not individual words and letters. There's no similar natural division in reference books, and letter-by-letter highlighting is extremely difficult to synchronize between multiple devices. So we've opted not to support highlighting in general, just highlighting by verse.

Notes are moving along great! Most of the Notes infrastructure is already done, as it has parts identical to highlights and bookmarks. What is taking a bit of time is the actual note editing UI.

What I am working towards is a true WYSIWYG editor. The best we have been able to do on other platforms is a raw text "Edit" mode where you can add HTML, then look at the styled HTML note in a "View" mode. Even then it can only do so much to help you add HTML in a convenient way.

With Android we are looking at making a single user interface where you can easily style your note without having to know HTML, and without having to switch between editing your note and viewing your note. There are some excellent open-source libraries that would help us to do this.

Other than having an awesome UI for editing notes on your Android devices, there are a few other benefits of using this third party library: All the heavy lifting with styling is done using JavaScript inside a WebView, so it will likely be portable to other platforms (no promises though). Also, there is a potential in the future to expand the features of what you can put into notes (again, no promises).

I will put up some screenshots when it is closer to its finished state.

Thank you, Michelle. I followed the instructs there and couldn't get it to work. Yesterday, I tried again ... and now I can synch my desktop, though I get an error: "Incorrect number of data fields Data type = BibleBookmarks. And, when I synch my android phone, nothing is pulled from my desktop synch.

I agree. Or has an update happened that we missed?

Notes aren't done yet, and it has been two steps forward and one step back. 

I have been trying out a number of HTML WYSIWYG editors to use for notes, and was settled on using a popular JavaScript based editor that has an enormous amount of functionality. A few weeks into integrating the editor, I realized that it had some serious problems with text selection on Android. 

I went back to square one, but not everything was lost time. I did some more research and realized that HTML5 has already done all the heavy lifting to make this happen.  That meant that I don't have to use a third party library to make rich text editing happen!

So, notes won't be here in time for Christmas, and there have been a few setbacks, but still making a lot of progress. Whenever you get notes into you hands, I think you will agree that it was worth the wait.

There appear to be some bible versions that have an audio file associated with them, which would sound nicer than text to speech. But text to speech would be good for those that don't have that file.

1.1.1 is Released today!

In a short detour before notes we added preferred books, updated the navigation menu, added showing and managing lists of highlights, and updated the bookmarks management UI.

Needed to smooth out some UI stuff and fix a few bugs before going on to notes, but now it is full speed ahead on notes.

Enjoy, and let us know what you think!

Other apps I use give you the option to arange items in a list - they have a little symbol that looks like 3 horizontal lines - and if you grab that symbol you can move the item up or down within the list.  

Just being able to create a list in the order I want - and have them stay in that order - would work for my use.  

Being able to arrange individual items would be good, too.

We released to Amazon! 

PocketBible is now available through the Amazon Appstore. If you already have the app through Google Play, there is no need to re-download it, but all of you who use the Amazon Appstore can download it now.

We are not yet directly available on Kindle devices, but we are hoping to be approved for them soon. In the meantime f you are on a Kindle and are feeling left out, you can always download the latest version of PocketBible in your browser by going to:

Everything new and in the works for PocketBible for Android.
Introduction
PocketBible is a Bible study app for Android. We are constantly improving the app, and this page lets you know what is new or up and coming. 

The two goals of this page are:

1) To help people discover, or rediscover PocketBible.

Here's how you can help spread the word:
  • +1 this page!
  • +1 the PocketBible app in Google Play!
  • Leave a good review of PocketBible in Google Play!
  • Comment, share, link to, and tell your friends about PocketBible for Android. 

2) To let anxious users know what is going on behind the scenes. 

It has taken some time to get this app to Google Play, and there is still a lot of features on our "To Do" list. We try to let people know what is coming next on our blog, but there are still a lot of devoted PocketBible users who are anxious to see new features. 

If you happen to be one of those users then this page is for you. I will try to post as often as I can to let you know what I am working on, and if you are lucky you might even get a screenshot every once in a while. 

So read, enjoy, comment, and share. PocketBible for Android is already great and it is getting better than ever.
