Bible Software for Blackberry Curve

I'm a new Blackberry user. My smartphone was a Palm Treo 700p. I used OliveTree bible software which is a really cool software. I bought the same product for my BB Curve 8330 but it does not work the same. Very hard to use and not at all pleasing to the eye. I am looking for a good product with a one time purchase price. Bible Unleashed looks good but there is apparently a monthly subscription. I hope someone has experience with this. This may be a deal breaker with my BB.

Re: Bible Software for Blackberry Curve

if you have a data plan, you can simply surf the web on any Bible website.

You can also buy a Bible e-book, and use an e-book application for Blackberry to read it on your Blackberry :

I use Olive tree on my pearl. It is tough to learn but it does work.

Try the Laridian Bible Software. Works good for me but the listings they offer for our Curve are somewhat limited.

Re: Bible Software for Blackberry Curve

I downloaded the Olivetree bible software.  I paid extra for the ESV .  I also got the free bible reader.  I have enjoyed it/ Was able to increase my font to a larger size.  Jesus's words are in red.  It is pretty cool It also has a commentary and a place for notes.
