Go Bible is being adopted by CrossWire as its Java ME application.
An agreement was reached earlier this year with the program's author Jolon
We are therefore looking for volunteers to help progress the transition.
There are already some pages under construction about Go Bible here...
Troy has asked me to lead the project, and we really need a lot of helpers.
Anyone who would like to become involved, please contact me.
It's unlikely that Go Bible would ever become a fully functional FrontEnd to
the SWORD API.
One has to remember the limitations of Java ME and mobile phone hardware.
Not to mention the wide variety of mobile phone models from different
Moreover, Go Bible is primarily a free Bible viewer, not an application for
reading other types of documents.
I have 18 months experience in using Go Bible Creator, and have contact with
most of the users of Go Bible Creator worldwide.
I am also the most active member of the Go Bible Forum, under my username
Go Bible Creator works with either ThML or OSIS files as the source text

GoBibleDataFormat is structured as
Book => Chapter => Verse
Book => Section => Paragraph
There are two related Google groups, one for Go Bible, and one for Go Bible
Lots of different types of activities will need to be planned in order to
successfully migrate the working and support environments from their present
form to one within the CrossWire community.
I am not involved with anything for the Symbian platform, nor is Go Bible.
For Symbian S60 phones that do not have J2ME, there is some activity on the
world wide web.
For anyone interested further, take a look at the Google group called
