For which platforms has PocketBible been released over the years?

Last Update 5 months ago

We have been doing this for a long time now. We've developed or licensed Bible software for platforms you have probably forgotten about.

In the list below, first versions for each major platform are highlighted. There were many variations of Windows CE (Microsoft's first mobile OS) so these are labelled with "Win CE" to make it clear. The first versions were called "PalmBible" before Palm laid claim to the trademark on the word "Palm" and forced everyone to stop using it.

Noah, Simple Bible Pro, and the first versions of MyBible were developed by outside developers and licensed for distribution by Laridian. There was a Web app targeted at iOS before you could create native apps for iOS (there was no "App Store" originally).
