Look Inside: NLT Study Bible

Posted by on 07/24/2014 in: ,

One of the great things about our new iOS 5.9 release is how The Bible Study App will be better able to layout text in ways that we could not before.  We wanted to show you a few examples of this using the NLT (New Living Translation) Study Bible. (Screenshots taken from an iPad 2.  Click for a larger view.)

Compare Romans 1:1

Previous iOS App 5.5.4                                               Current iOS App 5.9

You’ll notice that as you scroll through that section (and most other sections of the NLT Study Bible), you will find articles and sidebars, some of which are floating or using some nice formatting to make them stand out.

Compare Genesis 1:1

Previous iOS App 5.5.4                                               Current iOS App 5.9

The tables and articles are much laid out in a much more flowing format with the content.  This is just one of the many advantages to this app update.

Check out the NLT Study Bible and other titles that demonstrate the beautiful new layout with the latest update.

      Hi Dipo,

      We are working on these updates for Android devices. We don’t have a release date for when the update will be available.

        Thanks for the reply. I started using the Bible study app on my ipad before switching to the galaxy tab and the one important down side has been the configuration of the notes dialogue box in the android system and there has been no improvement since last year. . If what you have on the ios is duplicated in the android system it will wonderful plus for you guys. Is that really so difficult. Please let’s try. Im sure the response to this will make your rating hit the sky.

          Hi Dipo,
          Yes, we are working to bring the same features and functions to the Android platforms. However, it is not easy as duplicating the software code and there are other factors that make designing for the Android platform more difficult than for iOS. That being said, we are committed to the Android platform and have a dedicated team of developers working on the Android apps. We hope to have a solution out in the Google Play store soon, but I cannot give you a concrete time table.
          Many Blessings!

    Nothing was under the 5.9 side?

    I have the NLT and would really like to see this on my iPod touch running 5.9.8 but the NLT module that this is on takes 14 minutes to download and the Bible Reader will only stay on for 4 minutes and then shuts down. Wont stay on long enough for the downloaded to happen. 🙁
