This Bible- and chat-program was written by a user for other users.

It was designed considering the navigation and the translations of the bible.
If you are reading the Bible and want to compare it with another translation you can do this very fast and easily.

Copy Bible verses and send them directly via email or SMS!

The whole system was translated into three different languages (german, english and portuguese). Depending on the default language that was set in the iPhone general settings, the program automatically starts up using the right language.

- Navigation:
Reading and studying the Bible is very comfortable with this program. A click (with three fingers) on the surface suggests a semi-opaque navigation- and settings-layer. With this layer you can adjust the font size or just slide to the next or previous chapter.
If you tap (with three fingers) twice on the display, a secondary navigation layer (the first layer fades out) shows up and enables you to skip very easily several chapters.
The program also remembers every step the user takes so that at the next startup the user is able to continue right where he was last time.

- Search:
Full-text search does not need an internet connection and works just everywhere. With the help of this function parts of words, whole words or even phrases can be found in the Bible. The search was divided into two parts - the New Testament and the Old Testament.
When the user taps on a search result on the list, the program navigates directly to the appropriate place highlighting the result showing where it appears in the text.
The search does a search query in the translation, which is currently active. This makes it easy to compare languages and translations.

- World Forum / Chat:
This program is unique and is characterized by the fact that it is the only bible program that has a live chat for free, where the users of this software can communicate via the internet by sending instant messages to each other and chat or discuss about a subject.
This area will be revised and updated without the need of updating the software on the iPhone.
