**King James Version**
Our goal with the Manna Bible app is to mimic the experience of using a physical bible while using technology to make that experience better. We think that the best part about reading a physical bible is that it is more engaging (you can highlight, underline, take notes, and bracket text freely and easily). The problem with electronic bibles is that there is no easy way to integrate these features without making them cumbersome.
This may not sound like a difficult task, but try to highlight or take notes with any electronic bible and you will quickly learn that:
1.) Either highlighting and note taking are not a priority in the design, or
2.) They are located inside a menu to keep the app design uncluttered.
We understand that a company's initial vision for a product is seldom what people actually want from a product. For this reason we have decided to use the lean startup approach to product design in order to ensure that we can get this product right as quickly as possible. This current version should not be considered anything more than a Minimum Viable Product; it has been built to test our hypotheses. Everything in the app should work properly, and we will be adding and subtracting features that do not contribute to the best possible physical electronic bible experience.
We want to build the electronic bible that you as an individual will want to use, and so we look forward to getting your feedback about the user interface, look and feel, content, or anything else that comes to mind.
