      Description

      I would appreciate parallel windows, were the user can choose to either have two Bibles or Bible/Commentary or Bible/Notes.

      It would be good if those windows would be adjustable in size. Which ever you choose to move, the other shall follow to show the same verses.

        How is it with readability in olivetree when you have the iPhone in portrait view and have two versions open?
        is it too small or is it ok?

        i added some thoughts as http://www.crosswire.org/bugs/secure/attachment/10533/paralell.jpg
        what i would feel would be good for me and when studying the bible.

        (the "second" version has strongs numbers, and when you press a word you get the explanation opened..)

        As you see on the pictures above from Olivetree the parallel view in Portrait is under each other, and that's bad. On my old Palm you could only use it in Portrait, but the two parallel windows are beside each other.

        I think myself that Bible Readers with parallel windows shall ALWAYS be besides each other, both in Portrait and in Landscape!

        But I prefer reading the Bible parallel in Landscape, and want the possibility to lock it in Landscape even if I lay on my pillow and read it on the side, so it won't use the iPhone automatic rotation.

        I also like a lot that the sizes between the windows are adjustable, I prefer to have the window I'm actually reading a little bit larger then the other.

        Re mindstorming in Photoshop: Something like that will be excellent!

        I would really love to have parallel panes that sync like Tecarta or olive tree's last version. I currently use the olive tree hcsb study bible with study notes in one adjustable pane and the text in the other. Also- you have the first bible I have seen with Chinese pinyin. I would love to have pinyin in one and characters in the other. Better yet- an option for 3 panes on iPad and have english, pinyin, and characters in three panes- Wow- that would rock!

        What do you think Nic Carter?

        I don't know it it helps but I just added this in the last release of And Bible. Users were really keen on this feature.

        There is a demo video here: http://tinyurl.com/SplitDemo

        The code is all Java so won't be any use but the video might give some thoughts regarding design.
