I don't have any experience, but I did notice that the OSIS version of  
KJV is here:

OSIS is a standard XML format for scriptures... that could get you  

The iPhone doesn't have Core Data, but it does have SQLite, which  
could provide a fast means of lookup vs. parsing XML all the time. Not  
really sure how SWORD does it.

I imagine writing Bible software from scratch to be quite a lot of  
work... depending of course what all the features you support (I don't  
even understand all the terminology used around here).
