RSV-CE now available in store

RSV-CE (Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition), aka "the Ignatius Bible", is now available in the iTunes App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. Please tell all your friends and write plenty of good reviews for it. :)

Thank you for everyone's interest and support.

I got it.

Looks good. This is the only Versewise Bible I have and I like the way it's laid out.

Thanks

Thanks Ben! Let me know if you have any suggestions to make it better.

I plan on adding user bookmarks and highlighting next. This will be after I roll out the 2.1 release for the other translations.

I can't download it on my iPod touch 2.1 will I need to upgrade my os if I want to purchase this item? Thanks

Yes, I needed to go to OS 3.0 to get the toolbar and rotation working correctly. Sorry!

On the plus side, I think OS 3.0 is worth the $10 upgrade for iPods. Not only is there new functionality (like search) but operations like web browsing in Safari is noticeably faster. I say go for it! :)

Medessa said...

thanks! I will be upgrading to 3.0! God bless and keep up with the good work!

I was about to buy the RSV-CE from the app store via my ipod-touch and noticed that there are two listings for the RSV-CE. Data is identical, i.e. version and price. Which is the correct one?

Bruce Geerdes said...

There are two RSV releases: RSV (standard) and RSV-CE (Catholic edition). If you want the Catholic Bible with Catholic notes, get the RSV-CE.

Let me know if I can be of more assistance!

Looks ok now. Yesterday, there were 2 RSV-CE's that were identical in all respects as far as I could tell. Today, there's only one.

Thanks anyway for the response. Will get it over the weekend.

Must have been a hiccup in the store. Glad it's back to normal!

Hi Bruce,
I tried to get RSV-CE version when you first released it however it was not available in the UK. I checked the Apps Store today and it's still not available.
I don't know how Apple works these things. Any ideas? Will it be available in the UK?

All the best

John

I'm sorry! I do not have the license to distribute RSV in the UK. I will see what I can do about that.

Are you planning to also put up the RSV-2CE (2nd Edition Catholic Edition)?

Bruce Geerdes said...

Yes, the 2nd edition is a possibility. Eventually. It's a separate license, with a different publisher, so I probably have to wait for my current license to expire. Or at least have the forward paid off. :)
