    Now I don't have to bring my Bible to church, just my iphone.

    Remember to put your phone on vibrate.

    That might be considered kinky.

    Yes, in fact there seem to be quite a few.

    Of course, you might get the occasional unfriendly glance by someone who thinks you're playing with your phone in church.

    Might that be because you are religious?

    Funniness is probably relative to your faith.

    I have none, so bible apps are quite amusing to me.

    Doesn't surprise me in the least. There have been multiple Bible apps for Palm OS for years. Not interested myself but it seems like a valuable reference for those that are.

    I see this as no more odd or funny than the horoscope app.
    There are tons of bible apps actually, I'm quite surprised. I expected the first bible "app" mealy to be the bible as an ebook.

    Do they charge for these apps? I'd simply hate to see the good lords name used for profit http://up.*************/files/1/Images/Smilies/Dogeyes.gif

    There are a few bible apps out there. Check out the app called King James Mobible. You can geo-tag where you break each of the 10 commandments. It's great.

    That is one of the strangest things I have ever read.

    So if I were to be coveting my neigbour's ass in Old Compton Street… I could just use this handy little app?

    Interesting possibilities…

    Yep, it's the first app I got.
    It' s free and it's got many versions on it (including NIV and The Message).
    It doesn't actually store the books on your iPhone but connects (very quickly) to YouVersion.com to get the book you want.

    I've used a number of Bible apps on Windows Mobile and Palm OS. The NIV is not usually free.

    You do realise that shops sell paper Bibles rather than give them away.

    Err… yes.
    Or would that exclude me from finding the "10 Thou Shallt Nots app" useful?
    ;)

    I'm sure there are a lot of people out there that wouldn't find this thread to be funny. To each their own.

    If it's anything like the Bible, it get a little boring after the first few pages. :D

    ...and the slavery, and the bits about killing all children who have ever been disrespectful to their parents, and the fact that all shellfish is an abomination.

    Yep, it's a real riveting read. :eek:

    I bet there are a queue of suicide bombers in Palestine just waiting for the iKoran app. Just think: an eReader and a detonating device in one!

    We have a political forum for good reason. This thread is now closed and in future, please let those who enjoy using such apps alone.
