App Tip: Verse Chooser

3

Did you know there are different styles of navigation to get you to book, chapter, and verse in The Bible Study App?

iOS Devices

The Grid View orders books by Old Testament and New Testament

The List View orders the books by canonical category: Pentateuch, History, Poetry, Prophets, Gospels, Epistles, Revelation

For iOS it may not be obvious how to change between the two views. Here’s how to switch between the two (using an ipad as an example):
Tap the Go To button in the upper left. iOS currently defaults to ‘Grid View’. Drag the list downward and you’ll see two buttons next to the search bar. Now click on the button indicated by the arrow below to change to the ‘List View’.

The Resource Guide

2

What is the Resource Guide?
As you read along in your Bible in the main window of The Bible Study App, the Resource Guide in the split window follows along, looking in your library for any information that is relevant to your reading. As you scroll or change scripture references the Resource Guide will stay in sync looking to all of your study resources making for a powerful and easy to use study tool.


 

Your Very Own Research Assistant
Think of the Resource Guide as your own personal research assistant. If you were reading about Paul’s first missionary journey in Acts 13, your research assistant has a map of Paul’s journey, cross references to passages in Paul’s letters written to the churches he founded, charts that give an overview of Paul’s life, and all sorts of other resources. You didn’t have to do anything, in fact, you didn’t even have to ask. All of the work was already done by your personal research assistant, the Resource Guide.

Resource Guide 1

Completely Customizable
The configuration of the Resource Guide is also customizable. To access the options for customizing the Resource Guide tap on the double arrow button (double gear for Android) in the upper right corner. You will then see the various options for customizing the different sections in the Resource Guide.

What types of resources work with the Resource Guide?
The Resource Guide is ‘verse driven’ which means that the Bible passage that is open in the main window directs references in the Resource Guide. Not every resource is verse driven but some examples of verse driven resources are:

  • Articles on people, places, and other topics
  • Study Bible notes
  • Commentaries
  • Outlines
  • Dictionaries
  • Introductions to books of the Bible
  • Cross references
  • Maps

BUILT IN DICTIONARY LOOK UP

With the new dictionary look up option getting a definition is easy. Simply tap and hold on a word. You’ll then tap on ‘Define’ in the toolbar and the word definition will pop up.

MULTI-VERSE HIGHLIGHTING

In prior versions of The Bible Study App it was only possible to highlight one verse at a time. Now you can highlight as many as you’d like. First click on the verse number where you’d like to start your highlight. Then tap ‘Highlight’.

Then use the arrows to indicate the verse range you want to highlight and tap your desired highlight color.

When you highlight this way your highlights transfer between whatever your version your using.
