See comments below. We should probably make new CAB files soon.

Thanks to all those working on SwordReader & SmartSword


  Here are my initial thoughts:


1.  Great icon in my menu!


I agree.


2.  Came up quickly with KJV Gen 1:1

3.  Font was too small to read.  I had to get my glasses...  Compare with
Olive Tree  BibleReader

     (User can adjust this later so bigger is better than smaller.  Also you
want to show off the italics.)


On my Q9m it is too small as well. I am starting a config screen and this is
one of the first things going on it. The current code base has the font as
11. I have it set at 15 on my Q9m and it seems pretty good.


4.  Navigation: Try to get all 66 books on one page.  If you had kept the
small font ...:)

     Separate OT from NT by color or such.   Compare with Olive Tree


The latest version in SVN has the OT and NT separated by color. With
scrolling do you think that we should make the font and button size smaller?
Maybe we could have a config setting that would scale both the button font
and the button size together.


5.  Chap and Book fine but it took a long time to bring up text - BCV should
be indexed don't you think?

    I hope we don't search thru the text to get BCV.  Even by Book it takes
long to reach Ps. 150:1.     

    FYI - I could not get to chap [150] because I could not press [More >>]
button. (compare...)


In the latest version in SVN if you use the wheel or the down/right arrow
you should be able to keep going to get to the buttons not on the screen.


6.  I like the titles,  I like the italics,  I love the WOC in red! The
rendering is a great selling point!

7.  Scrolling is cool,  but lost in the shuffle because of 3, 4, 5.  and  9!
more later.


I don't understand what you mean.


8. Find:  (I have a preference for "Search") but I could do nothing in this
screen. I'm assuming we are

   waiting for soText.  Or it just does not work on my Q.   Would not accept
text. Radio buttons locked.


I am working on the search screen.


9. Second time I opened the icon I got  Error  Could not open. ...  (this
happened again & again & again...)

   ot.bzv error:32


   Then   KJV Gen:    appears...

             1:1 [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] []  2 [] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] []  3
[] [] [] [] [] [] [] [] []  ...    brackets are boxes I think


   in Task Manager the  following were running:

     KJV  Gen 1:1

     KJV   Joh  2:1


   Once I Killed these I could run SwordReader again


I see the same behavior. I thought David fixed this for the PocketPC
Platform. Maybe we need to look further for the SmartPhone


 I hope some of this helps. With that great rendering, we are heading toward
a great product!

 I can see you have put in much cool work. Keep it up.


In His Grace,
