Default Bible on SD card

Please Login to Remove!

FYI for those looking at Bible programs. Olive Tree now offers a Beta for the BlackBerry that stores the actual Bible databases on the SD card, freeing the BlackBerry memory. Only the program itself is in BlackBerry memory. Since most full Bibles take approx. 2.5 megs each - this is great! And it is a free download. I've used Olive Tree on other devices and find it very useable.

I have purchased an NIV version of Olivetree after looking at this thread, with 15% discount for Christmas2008! It's a very simple reader and necessary features working quite well. Thank you for the information. God bless!

I have also signed up for the YouVersion online bible community for Blackberry users. When you have the internet connection, this is a very nice bible site with many neat features, including the ability to see many different versions of the Bible without purchasing them. Great for quick references!
