MyBible » Requirements Conclusion
Requirements MyBible manages to cram the
entire Bible into less than 2 MB. MyBible consists of the MyBible
program, which is 32K. Depending on the translation, you will need
between 200K-1500K available. The complete NIV Bible plus the MyBible
reader is 1446K. Because many Palm OS compatibles have <2 MB RAM,
the fact that you can specify what books of the Bible are installed is
a real plus. There are eight modules of the Bible that you can install.
The entire New Testament is on modules 7 and 8. Once installed, you
can also remove any book that you wish.

The following is a list of
features from Laridian’s
of the differences between MyBible and Scripture. Currently Laridian
has a special deal for Scripture owners. Go to Laridian’s website
for more information.
MyBible lets you set bookmarks
on your favorite passages. Tap the bookmark icon at the top of the screen
to go to, set, or clear a bookmark.
MyBible lets you selectively
delete individual books of the Bible to conserve memory on your Palm device.
MyBible lets you easily switch
between two or more installed Bibles by tapping the translation name at
the top of the screen, then tapping the Bible you want to open.
MyBible displays the translator’s
footnotes for the Bibles that include them.
MyBible supports moving to the
previous and next verse, chapter, book or "found" verse from a search.
Some (but not all) of these were in the Scripture beta.
Searching is fixed with respect
to all-upper-case words. A search for "day of the Lord" now works correctly
regardless of the state of the "Ignore Case" checkbox.
