  1. eBible Open Source

    I love eBible and as a programmer I would love to help support ebible through extensions, layouts, add -ons, etc. It's great that people can use ebible for free, but as long as its proprietary its going to be limited.

    Open sourcing eBible would:
    1. Allow developers to contribute code in different ways.
    2. Allow developers to contribute to bug fixes/compatibility issues/new features/etc.
    3. Create a rich community.

    If your not willing to go completely open source you could do what alot of other OS software do, have an OS version and a proprietary version. That way you can continue…

    • offering tab on the cart page

      With the economic times being what they are having the option to give something toward this great work and making it even better. Would I think let everyone have a part in the labor, even if today one can't afford the basic entry. One can plant when and what they can in faith (widow's might) for the future thank you for what you do..

      • Custom CSS for Verselink hover

        I would love to be able to customize the CSS for the hover popup in Verselink. I want to make it match our site.

            • Comments Posted Tab on Contributions

              On the contributions you should have a tab for comments posted. people like to refer back to them and it takes quite a while to find them.

              • ebible icon and better options in embedable bible

                Making an eBible icon available to the public makes it easier for me to link an image to your website/publish. Also making a more stripped down version of the embeddable bible would be great for limited space such as my website. Maybe just the search bar, books, bible version, bookmark, reading plan, group and login/account in one straight long rectangle. As of now it takes up too much space and would be cool if I could use it like a google search bar on my page.

                • Add a "Group" icon for all phone apps.

                  1. add a discussion box so members can chat quickly and easily about assigned homework, their shared reading plans, lives, etc. (Essentially text messaging or instant messaging).

                  2. add a message board (or like a notifications area) where group members can post important articles,docs,and links to podcast for members to look over. (Different from discussion box because this has a title, then a subject with various links, documents, etc. and can only be added by admins of the group).

                  3. add a "group" icon inside all the phone apps so that I can use all the above group features on…

                  • More versions

                    I would suggest adding the following Bible versions:

                    - Polish versions
                    - Spanish (mainly Reina Valera 1960)
                    - Norwegian versions

                    God bless!

                    • Cross-reference previews and links in iOS.

                      I'm going to add a couple suggestions for study features that would be great in the iOS app, since the bulk of my usage will be on an iPad. Some of them already exist in the web app.

                      In the web app, clicking a cross-reference allows for a preview of the verse, and then there's an option to click through to view it in context. It seems like a pretty great solution.

                      However, it's absent in iOS, which can be a deal-breaker when using eBible on a mobile device in place of a bible.

                      • Add Strong's concordance list to definitions in the iOS app.

                        I'm going to add a couple suggestions for study features that would be great in the iOS app, since the bulk of my usage will be on an iPad. Some of them already exist in the web app.

                        On the web app, whenever someone visits the "explain" pane and looks up a Strong's word, they have a list of all the entries in the concordance. It's great to be able to see all the other verses that use that exact original word.

                        In the iOS app, I know you can search by Strong's number, but it's clunky to look up…

                        • Show Multiple Sets of Verses on Scripture Page

                          I am trying to put a set of verses on our webpage as follows... 2Cor. 5:20-6:10. This does not work. I do not get a link. If I use 2Cor. 5:20-21, 6:1-10, I get two separate but proper links.

                          Thanks for this excellent service. It works for most simple text references very well.

                                • Make the Desktop and Mobile app experience the same

                                  Right now as it stands, the desktop version of ebible and the ipad version are 2 different experiences.
                                  The Desktop version is very minimalist, has tons of white space, has Sans Serif font and is straight to the point. This is a great layout and experience.
                                  However, the iPad, uses old Serif font, has a dingy old creamish look to the background, has actual book pages to make it look like an acutal book (even though it's on a mobile device) and when you hold it in landscape mode you get a book layout that eats up a lot of…

                                  • Landscape scrolling when entering notes on iPhone

                                    Currently, when I write a note, I can turn my phone to landscape view in order to use the wider onscreen keyboard. But I cannot scroll up and down to see my full note. If I try to type a note that is several sentences long, I can never see the bottom of my note in landscape view. This forces me to use the portrait view when I enter my notes. I'd love to be able to enter/read my notes in landscape/wide view.

                                    • Reassign a note to a different verse

                                      I notice that whenever I write a note, it creates a note title that matches the verse(s) that I had selected when I composed a note (John 3:16). Or if I have no particular verse(s) selected and just click the compose note button, it titles the note with the entire chapter (i.e. John 3).

                                      I have tried to edit the title of notes later but it's obvious that the title alone does not link a note to a verse, but rather a hidden field indicates what verse(s) the note links to. This is obviously the correct way to structure it…

                                      • tumblr mash up

                                        Very impressed with this project. Can't wait to see where it goes. Would love to see the ability to post verses or notes on tumblr as part of the sharing functionality.

                                        • PayPal please!

                                          It's become way too problematic to put credit card info out there. Even if your site is secure, it's painful updating accounts when I have to replace my credit card for whatever reason (theft, lost, expired...). I only use PayPal online. Update that and everything else just works. I will sign up as a member when eBible is setup with PayPal for recurring subscriptions. Thanks:)

                                            Accepting Paypal requires significant amount of work because we will need to build another payment system on top of the one we currently have, not to mention that Paypal charges us more for their service as well. We will continue to monitor this request to gauge the level of demand. Thanks for letting us know.
