    I recently purchased a Palm PDA to organize my life and I would like to use my Palm to support a scripture memorization program I began recently to memorize large passages of scripture. (My life goal is to memorize the Psalms and the New Testament!)

    I've looked at a number of Bible study solutions for the Palm OS on the internet, but I was wondering if anyone had some real world experience and opinions they would be willing to share.

    I'm interested in:

    Multiple translations: At minimum, the KJV and NASB, but I am interested in any quality translation or paraphrase.
    Memorization aids: Any aids that others have found useful.
    Commentaries: Not essential, but commentaries are often useful for personal study.
    Personal notation capability: I'd love to be able to make notes of insights or items to study further that are linked to the text.
    Search capability: A fast search engine.

    Any suggestions?

    I miss my Palm. I'm hoping to get a Treo soon.

    Anyway, the best bible software I found for Palm is Olivetree's bible reader.

    http://www.olivetree.com/

    I'm not sure about memorization aids, but it does support everything else, and while not blazing fast, it is one of the fastest searches I found.

    That software looks good. I've also had Laridian's software (http://www.laridian.com/palm/os_select.asp??) recommended to me. Do you know anything about it?

    As far as I can determine, the best software for my needs is either a Olive Tree or Laridian package. Anyone else have an opinion or experience they would like to share?

    Thanks for the assistance!! :thumbs:

    Treo Bible Software

    James, or anyone else, do you know if the software found on that Olive Tree site works on a Treo 750? I'm getting one soon, and that site had a lot of free downloads that would be nice to use on my Treo.

    Thanks for any help.
