The Bible App for BlackBerry: Now With Highlights, Better Bookmarking

You can now get version 3.5.1, the latest release of the Bible App™ for your BlackBerry device, in BlackBerry App World or as a direct browser download. In this exciting update, highlights are all new, and bookmarks are better than ever:

  • Highlights. For the first time on BlackBerry, now you can highlight individual or multiple Bible verses or passages in different colors—just like in your favorite paper Bible! (If you’re new to reading the Bible, highlights are a great way you can mark verses you enjoy, or that you want to easily spot again later.)
  • Bookmarks. Bookmarking on your BlackBerry device works pretty much the same way it has for a long time, where you simply tap on what you want to mark, then select Bookmark. Only now, for the first time ever, you can select multiple verses at a time! But you’ll find a lot more functionality than just that. For example, you can choose a highlight color, add a title to your bookmark—even label it. Bookmarks are great for sharing special passages with friends, better organizing your personal studies, or for whatever purposes your imagination and creativity lead you to.
  • Fixes.While this release also includes the standard “bug fixes” and “performance enhancements,” the most significant thing we addressed this time around was repairing a troubling issue that was causing freezes for some users under certain conditions. That shouldn’t happen anymore, and the Bible App should be noticeably faster at many common tasks.
