Our aim is to not only make PocketBible the most portable Bible software, but also the easiest to use. From the moment you open the program, you'll find it does everything you want to do with a Bible software program — without the learning curve.
Cedar Rapids, IA (PRWEB) December 13, 2007
Laridian, Inc., the leading developer of Bible software applications for mobile devices, today announces the release of its acclaimed PocketBible for Windows. The Windows version is available as a download from the company’s website, or on a USB flash drive – the first PC Bible software that can run from a USB flash drive and also synchronize personal data with a mobile version on a Windows Mobile or Palm OS device.
Laridian designed the new Windows version of PocketBible to make studying the Bible easier than ever. It is distinguished from other PC-based Bibles as it was developed with mobile users in mind. The PocketBible program and library can be used from a USB flash drive so it can easily be run from any computer. Further, any Bibles and books purchased with PocketBible for Windows are compatible with the mobile versions of Laridian software.
“Electronic Bibles should be as portable as those who use them, and PocketBible is designed for those who want to study their Bibles whether they are at home, on the subway, on break at work, or at church,” said Craig Rairdin, President of Laridian, Inc. “Our aim is to not only make PocketBible the most portable Bible software, but also the easiest to use. From the moment you open the program, you'll find it does everything you want to do with a Bible software program — without the learning curve.”
Bible software like PocketBible for Windows contains the complete text of several versions of the Bible along with dozens of Bible reference books, allowing users to search for passages, find historical and cultural background information, look up the meaning of words, and copy passages into sermons, lessons, and research papers.
A key advantage of purchasing electronic Bibles or books from Laridian is customers will not have to purchase them for another platform when they upgrade to a new device. All Laridian Bible translations and books purchased for one platform can be viewed on any other platform.
A new feature for users of the PC and Windows Mobile Pocket PC versions, and soon to be expanded to other platforms, is the ability to synchronize personal data (such as notes, bookmarks and highlights) between devices. For example, notes entered with a particular Bible passage on the Pocket PC will synchronize and appear when the PC version is being used.
The PocketBible program is priced at $10 for mobile versions and $29.99 for Windows. Bibles and reference books range in price from free to $129.99. PocketBible Libraries, which combine the PocketBible program and a selection of popular Bibles and reference books at a discount, are also available.
