Cedar Rapids, IA (PRWEB) August 11, 2005
Laridian, Inc., a leading publisher of Bible-related software for mobile devices, today released iPocketBibleÂ New LivingÂ® Translation Edition for use with iPodÂ® mobile digital devices.
iPocketBible includes the complete text and dramatized audio of the Holy Bible, New Living Translation for reading and listening. iPocketBible utilizes the iPod "Notes" feature to present the Bible text for reading. A verse and subject index allow the user to start at any book in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. A "Listen" option links them directly to the audio so they can listen as they read.
"Most MP3 Bibles give users audio only," said Craig Rairdin, president of Laridian. "iPocketBible gives the iPod user the ability to read or listen or both read and listen at once to the Bible text. It takes the Bible from being another "audio book" and turns it into a devotional and study tool for your iPod.Â
The New Living Translation is an accurate yet easy-to-understand translation of the Bible. Published in 1996 by Tyndale House Publishers, it is a thought-for-thought translation from the original Greek and Hebrew manuscripts that is ideal for devotional reading.
iPocketBible New Living Translation offers over 73 hours of professionally recorded MP3 audio. This dramatic, multi-voice edition includes original music and sound effects. Narration is provided by Mike Kellogg, national radio host of Moody BroadcastingÂs Music Thru the Night.
The iPocketBible New Living Translation Edition is available for $49.99 (plus shipping charges of $5.50). The product ships on 5 MP3 CDs and can be ordered from the Laridian Web site (http://www.laridian.com). The product requires an iPod device with a dock connector (excludes iPod shuffle).
