I'm looking for some cell phone testers, J2ME (most all phones), and
also someone with an iPhone.
We have recently added a web based dynamic lesson generator for our
The way it works, is that the page asks you for a range of Scripture.
It will then collate and sort all words found in the supplied range and
create flashcard lessons from these words.
The idea is that when one is having a Greek or Hebrew study group and
they know they will be reading, say Romans 4-5 next week, they can
generate vocab for just those chapters and polish their memory during
the week. At least that is why I wanted this feature :)
Lessons are produced in 3 formats:
Here's the catch. The generation task is fairly machine intensive, and
it might not be concurrency-safe. I am not looking to break things in
these two ways right now. Just looking for phone feedback. SO PLEASE:
Pick a small Scripture range. Don't experiment just for fun yet. I'll
be working of stability and optimization after things are being produced
I have no idea how the web-based app will display on any micro-browser.
I tried to use small controls. Right now we're not displaying the
pre-rendered images for the webapp. I'd like to see how the iPhone does
with UTF-8 Greek and Hebrew. If we need to, we can switch over to the

From your phone:
Appreciate any feedback.
