    I don't even have mine yet, but I know I am going to want a simple Bible app for my new iPhone. Even if I just had a searchable KJV it would be nice. Does anyone know of one available yet?

    Found a free app just called "Bible" that is very basic, but has several versions

    Good.

    Just in case that doesn't work for you and you didn't mind carrying two devices www.geeks.com have older Ipaq pocket pcs that would run olivetree very nicely. I don't know about e-sword. I run e-sword on a 400 mhz unit and it is slow to open but okay after loaded. The Ipaqs are 200 mhz I think. They are under 80

    I have an older rig that runs it (200 mhz) but it is verrrry slow to open on it.

    Thanks for the help - my goal is to have one gadget and only one :)

    Guess I'll wait for a better Bible :)

    Yes, one pocket full is quite enough, that is why I'm still with a ppc not a cell phone thus far. Use the ppc much too much to give it up - use three bible programs on it among other things.

    You should check in with olivetree now and then or even email them and see if they have anything in the plans. I would think it would be a natural for them but then what do I know :)

    There are a variety of web apps available, including the NET Bible and iBibleSpace, the ones I use. Also, I believe Laridian offers a service whereby you can access any software you own for the PC, from your iPhone. I haven't tried that.

    For the new downloadable apps that became available with iPhone 2.0, there are also some available. I haven't tried any yet, but of 34 programs listed under "Reference", 15 appear to be Bibles.

    I've used the web apps Bibles a lot, and look forward to trying some of the new ones out. Hope this helps!

    Jim
