I love e-readers, but in general, Bibles on e-readers are difficult to use. That’s because e-books are developed with the idea of reading one page at a time, in order, with no reason to jump around. This works great for fiction. It even works fine for most non-fiction, but for reference works and the Bible, e-readers need something more. They need to run the Bible as an app. I’ve used apps for PDA’s and smartphone’s for years and that’s exactly what the Kindle needs to make the Bible usable. Bible apps give us features like book and verse selection screens, the book and chapter at the top of the screen, highlighting, bookmarks, annotations, and powerful searching.
That’s what Miklal Software’s KJV Bible App for Kindle is. It’s an app that works like Bibles found on smartphones, tablets, and PC’s. It has usability you can’t get in just a standard Kindle e-book. Here are some of its strengths:
- Easy navigation
- Powerful searches
- Book and chapter shows at the top of the screen
I really love the navigation. I go from one book to another a lot and this app makes it fast and easy. Just go to the navigation screen, select the book, select the chapter, and select the verse. Simple. Just like a Bible app should be.
The searches are amazing. There are several ways to search and they’re quick and easy. You can move the cursor to a word, select the menu button, and choose to search for that word. You can also type words into the search bar. You can search for one word, multiple words within the same verse, multiple words within a certain number of verses from each other, and you can use wildcards.
It’s easy to make notes, highlights, and bookmarks. It even utilizes the touch features of the Kindle Touch and Paperwhite. The text looks great. It even has italics for supplied words.
Ease of use and features are the best in any Bible for Kindle. This app is exactly the Bible I’ve been waiting for on Kindle. And for the price it’s a no brainer.
