VerseWise Bible RSV-CE for iPad now available

VerseWise Bible RSV-CE for iPad is now in the App Store! Download it, tell your friends and let me know what you think! I hope you like it.

RSV, KJV, DR and RV will follow in the upcoming weeks.

I did find some bugs since submitting it:
  • Deleting a bookmark does not always dismiss the popover
  • Bookmarks in Plans sometimes cause a delayed redraw of the screen
For both of these problems an extra tap fixes things, but they're annoying nonetheless and I'll get a fix out soon. In the meantime, if you find anything else, please let me know in the comments or in email.

I also plan to add formatting now that we have all of that iPad real estate. This will bring the text layout more in line with the published page. My top priority is the RSV and RSV-CE.

And, yes, we have an iPhone/iPod update waiting in the wings. As soon as all the iPad editions are out the door I'll work on this.

VerseWise Bible RSV-CE S submitted

The first iPad version of VerseWise Bible has been submitted to the App Store! Apple's Christmas break is only a week away, but that might be enough time to get it approved before they're off. They've been speedy in past holiday seasons.

Since this is a 1.0, I'm only releasing the RSV-CE version for now. Once I feel comfortable that there aren't any big issues (nothing like having to fix a bug and then re-submit 5 or 6 apps at the same time), I'll roll out other versions.

In the development of the iPad version, I've also been updating the iPhone/iPod code base. Nothing real fancy as far as features go, but a lot of under-the-covers stuff like a crash reporter that will allow you to send crash reports with a single tap. I hope to use this to improve the quality of VerseWise, so please tap "Send" when asked! (Ideally you'll never even see a crash, of course.)

That said, I don't want to send an iPhone/iPod update with nothing "new", so I'll see what I can do.

Thank you for your support and I hope you all have a blessed Christmas season.
