Addressing an Issue in the Bible App for BlackBerry

Do you use the Bible App for BlackBerry? If so we want to give you a heads up about a problem that is popping up for a small segment of our BlackBerry community.

We’re very sorry for the frustration some of you have experienced with an unstable app. We have been battling a tricky error that causes the app to freeze for some people, but not for everyone. This bug has been challenging to find, but it appears to be related to how we have integrated BlackBerry Messenger into the Bible App.

To get this fixed, we are pushing as hard as we can to get a new release out to you. This new release will not have the BBM integration, but there is a lot to look forward to: highlights, improved bookmarking, and a few other speed enhancements that should really improve your experience within the app. We look to bring back BBM integration as soon as we are able to solve these issues.

We are finishing up the app and will be testing it rigorously before it gets submitted to RIM for approval. That means the new build with improved features should be in your hand in about two weeks. That really does seem like a long time given how long you’ve had to wait, but it is 100% necessary to give everyone the stable release you’ve been waiting for.

Again, our apologies for the problems you’ve encountered in using the Bible App for BlackBerry. Thank you for your patience and for working with us to troubleshoot the issue. We¹ll keep you informed as much as possible and we’ll certainly have a post here on the blog when the new update is available!
