Here's some screen shots of what the Bible program looks like right now. No, for those of you that want to know, I only have rights to publish the King James Version, since it's in the public domain. I'm not opposed to building it for other translations, but those are copyrighted and I haven't gotten the rights to publish them.
Here's portrait view:

Steve, I sent you an E-Mail to your public Microsoft address. I may be able to help you out with this.
Great!!!!! I would like to help. I can help with spanish if you want.
Great work... I will be glad to help too. :)
App looks great thanks. Just a quick question, how do you store the data - what format is the bible files stored as, and as for performance can you save them as datasets as would a windows app?
@Joachim -- Thanks. I have optimized the file format for use on the phone -- it's a binary file that I open as a stream, and it contains indexes to help me find the locations I'm trying to seek to, among other things.
How about the NET version? (They'll public domain the non-notes version I think...)
I really like the simple clean look you have. I am glad people like yourself are putting fourth effort in this way.
Pocket esword was not very finger friendly, however it was by far the best phone bible I had ever seen before they sadly stopped developing.
One crucial feature they had was a KJV with strong's numbers below or in a green font beside. Would you be able to make this modular so others could upload other free translations, commentary, bible dictionary's etc?
Sometimes when I get stuck I will go to a paraphrase, or look up the definition of a word and then try to find all the other spots that word was used. I have no idea how hard it is to implement but a tool like that on wp7 would be fantastic.
anyways God bless and I hope this project goes smoothly
is this open source i would really love to translate to my native langauge thanks
