Bible App: awesome update coming to the Mac App Store!

The first Bible reader on the Mac App Store is just about to get a lot better, and it’s ready for Mac OS X Lion!

We improved our Bible App on three main fronts: Contents, Navigation and Search features.

The Bible App is so easy to navigate, you don’t need to be a scholar to use it. It’s the Bible reader for the rest of us. The beautiful, elegant user interface allows you to dive into the Sacred Scriptures without all the clutter of Websites.

From the Divine Office Catholic Ministry, developers of the “2011 Best iPhone, iPod and iPad Catholic Apps,” this beautifully crafted, simple to use Bible App is the perfect companion for daily inspiration and spiritual nourishment.
