MacSword Development

Is it possible to get involved with the MacSword development team? I have a lot of ideas and also want to work towards creating a way to sync bookmarks and things between an iPhone version of MacSword.

As a designer, I could help with GUI design.

Didn't mean to post this twice. It never gave me confirmation, so I thought it hadn't gone through.

Re: MacSword Development

Hi there.

Is it possible to get involved with the MacSword development team? I have a lot of ideas and also want to work towards creating a way to sync bookmarks and things between an iPhone version of MacSword.

As a designer, I could help with GUI design.

Of course it is possible to get involved and we'd be happy to get help.

If I remember correctly there is a Sword iPhone application in development.

Did you have a look on the new beta version?


Regards,
Manfred

Re: MacSword Development

Yeah it's looking great so far. I really like where it's headed.

I think this is such a valuable project that can help normal people like me get into the Word of God in a deeper way, and not cost them hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

That's why I want to help out in whatever way I can, to try to help this project be the best that it can.

That said, do you have an email list that is specific to this project? I saw the ones for the general SWORD development, but nothing specific to this project.

Also, which iPhone SWORD project were you talking about? the only one I know of is: http://pocketsword.net/

Not sure what kind of progress is being made on that, but I'd love to see some collaboration happen between MacSword and an iPhone project so we can get some bookmark syncing happening! :-)

Anyways, let me know how I can get involved. I think at this point, I'd be most useful as an idea guy and as design help for the GUI and stuff. But if there is some low-end Obj-C stuff I could dig in on that would help me get better, I'd love to do some of that too. I'm new to Obj-C but have experience in other languages. I've been learning it so that I can create the iPhone Bible app that has a good user interface! :-) But having a great desktop app is just as important to me.

Re: MacSword Development

Hi.

Sorry just have seen that you replied.

Yeah, we have a separate mailing list, check here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/MacSword

And yes, the iPhone software I was referring to was PocketSword.


I think a bookmark synching is relatively easy since the iPhone also can read property lists which MacSword uses to store the bookmarks.


Best regards,
Manfred

Re: MacSword Development

Ian is the one that you have to go through because he has to authorize your ipod touch for the app to work. He will send you the files, but he's been really busy. Not sure if he has finished school yet?
