1. Good enough in my opinion
2. Long press in search view mow follow passage, i have tested this on
desktop but on device this is slow. There is way to optimize this.
3. This is strange, could you please send me privately log from
c:\btlog.txt ?
4. I will make text black. "mini-night" is my favorite for now but i prefer
to leave "mini" by default.
5. Ok, thanks. I would like to make it unostentatious, but make ot little
longer or intensive should be good.
6. Because KJV is default Bible module, it is correct bevavior.
9. GREAT!  :^)

building packages for both platforms takes long enought time, and  as well
S60 package works on ^3. ^3 have only webkit support that is experimental

Will find the solution for your last statement. Many thanks for your help
and let God bless you both.

seconds (2 vibrations) and released.  The circle of dots froze.  After
about 5 more minutes of ignoring it I looked again and it was unfrozen, but
in the "Settings" screen. Repeated this and the same thing happened again.

previous index again!)  Pressing while circle of dots appears and then
releasing again freezes.  Watched, and after about a minute the search
screen vanished and one of the other existing screens appeared.
> 4) The S60 UI gives me white text on a light green background - virtually
unreadable.  The new "mini" style is definitely an improvement on what was
there before.

non-noticed.  Suggestion:  make it longer, and make it an option in the
settings (though I can see why having it enabled is good).

box, and sometimes a verse or part thereof (in KJV).

can see the E: and F: drives, but not the C: drive - though I can see the
C: drive directly on the phone.  On E: drive (the internal 8G of memory is
divided into C: and E: with most in E:) where I told it to install BTM, I
can see the indices and cache etc. under E:\data\Bibletime.  I can also see
E:\data\Sword\mods.d - but that is an empty folder.  I could not find the
installed modules on any of the 3 drives, and I could not find C:\btlog.txt.

>> Hi, i have just uploaded new version. With some fixes to search, there
really was crash when trying to search. And regarding to application
becomes unresponsive when switching current module, it seem to be fixed too
(i found that some modules in Crosswire repository still have such behavior
in desktop BibleTime, at least for some glossaries).
>> On matter of long indexig time, could you say how it is long exactly? I
have tested nokia 700 in Remote Device Access and it took 10 minutes to
index KJV (do have you Belle Future Pack?, there is cpu speed up for your
model afaik)
>> Regarding 2. i can not restart device in RDA, can you provide some
information. From 0.9.3 indexes as well as modules will be stored in
<installation drive>:\data\  in Bibletime\indecies and Sword folders
respectively, log is always at c:\btlog.txt . So you may open it and look,
and maybe indexes for ESV was removed as orphaned?
>> 3. not sure, but ESV cross-references seems to not work properly. If
link is marked properly and you have at least one Bible it should open
following passage (you need default Bible configured, but it is configured
automatically on first Bible installation, if not - bug).
>> Another features in this version are: vibration on Symbian devices (i
have no way to test it, so i hope on your help), it vibrates twice: after
second while you pressing the screen and after two seconds, this indicates
different actions (context or service). General Book support (all module
types are supported now), search in non-Bible modules.
>> 5. added tips, hope that they are clear enough
>> 6. made text box more obvious
>> 8. this probably fixed stuff, report please if it persist anyway
>> Blessings, and many thanks for your report!
