This was essentially a built in Note/Memo page where you could write notes and copy scriptures during teaching, sermons etc. Afterwards, you could export the Text for later reference, syncing to desktop etc.
Currently iPhone doesn't permit fast switching of applications making effective note taking very difficult. Thus the solution has to be a Memo "inside" PocketSword. This idea based on Palm Bible+ memo feature (also based on the Sword Project) as the PalmOS also permits only a "single application" to run at once.
- Fast access - Toggling between the Bible and Memo is vital for effective note taking (1)
- Export to Notepad or similar fee Memo Application (2)
- Copy of selected text in Bible or Module into Memo (3)
- Copy Scripture reference (4)
1.) Perhaps move bookmarks to the History/Search tab and use that space for Memo? A slide side-swipe would be iPhonish, but that currently navigates chapters.
2.) Export the Text to the standard iPhone Notes or other freely available memo application which would permit sorting and sync in the usual manner. Suggestions to what "Note application" would be best for exporting to would be appropriate.
Even if export was only added later as copy/paste could suffice for now, would it be possible to add a basic text notepad ?
3.) Probably no coding required with the feature available in iPhone OS already
4.) This would be the actual reference of the bible text eg. Romans 1:8
This feature was added as switching between Applications is just too slow for taking realtime notes and with it built in it makes it seemless, efficient and fast.
