I have been using the Sword Bible project for years, and so, it was only natural for me to ask if it exists on Android for my phone. The short story is that a project exists at Google Code, but it doesn’t quite look like it is ready for prime time.
First, if you want to know a little more about the Sword project, you can read up on it at this Wikipedia article. I think I first started with it when I bought a Bible program from our college bookstore. Now, in Linux, I use a program called Xiphos, which is a Linux/Gnome frontend for the Sword Project. The program used to be called Gnome Sword. You can also find more information from the main Sword Website including a small list of sofware.
My first find was this post on Werx Limited. The post mentions a project named Bishop, but that project is more of a tech test than an actual application for use. So, I read through the whole conversation thread discussing Bishop and the development of an application. To my delight, I hit Martin Denham’s message about his And-Bible project.
I haven’t had a chance to install it or anything. For now, I just wanted to capture these links, but I hope to mess with it some more. For now, I am just using Virtue Bible FE. I will keep you updated.
