iBiblez continues to improve its offerings and now provides a free downloaded bible for your iPhone of iPod Touch. You just provide your email address (that you use on your device) and they email you the files.
Currently it just includes the New Testament but they are working on providing the Old Testament too. This is a great addition, especially for those of us in place like London where travel to work on the underground means we loose our internet connection!
It is not a prefect solution, but this is due to the way the iPhone is set up rather than the programming of iBiblez. Hopefully this will change in the future, but in the meantime the following guidance is provided by iBiblez to access the bible free once they have emailed it to you.
Option 1. – new email address
You can make a new email account with gMail just for the TouchBible. Then forward it to your other email account (or download it again). Keep this email address a secret until June
Option 2. – make an email folder in existing account
You can set up one of your already existing accounts as IMAP. Then, on your desktop computer, make a folder. Drag the TouchBible email to that folder, put nothing else in it.
The next time your check mail on your iPod, the folder will be there, and the email will be inside.
