Reviews - What do customers think about Quickverse Bible Study 2007 Mobile Platinum?
Good program, poor Palm support Feb 28, 2007
I got the Platinum version of QuickVerse PDA, but this review should apply to all the 2007 versions of QuickVerse PDA. Like most of the desktop PC versions of Bible Study software, the basic program is the same, and the higher priced versions simply contain more Bibles and other reference works. This is fair, as the more modern books that are included, the more copywrite fees the publisher has to pay.
I have used several other Palm and PocketPC Bible Study programs before getting QuickVerse PDA. These were primarily book readers that would let you read one Bible translation or reference work at a time, and had a few extra features like letting you add your own notes to a verse, or automatically look up some of the reference works by verse number. QuickVerse takes this to a whole new level by allowing you to tap on individual words and look up every reference work that relates to that word or topic. It also lets you jump from one translation to another and automatically stay at the same chapter and verse. Overall, it's still not as full featured as the various desktop PC programs, but it is a big step closer. I read one review that said QuickVerse PDA was unacceptably slow. I'm using it with a Palm Treo that has a 300 Mhz processor and a fast 40X Secure Digital card. With that combination it only takes a second or so to load a new book for viewing. With older Palm devices, it might well take several seconds to change screens. While this is slow compared to a desktop PC, it's still a lot faster than flipping through pages and looking it up in a paper book. Or, more accurately, a stack of books.
While the program that lives on the Palm itself works great, QuickVerse did a lousy job of supporting the installation for Palm devices. QuickVerse PDA is supposed to include various multimedia features, both audio clips and photos. However, the multimedia features have a separate installer that only works with PocketPC's. There is no provision for installing this material on Palm devicess at all. The installation program should also present you with a list of which Bibles and books you want installed (if your Palm has limited memory, you may not have room for everything). You're left figuring this out for yourself. All the Bibles and reference material can be loaded onto a Secure Digital or Compact Flash card, but QuickVerse didn't use the standard Palm locations for storing data. So if you try to use the Palm Desktop to install extra books straight into the storage card, QuickVerse won't be able to find them. You have to install everything into the Palm's main memory, then let the QuickVerse PDA program itself transfer the books from the Palm's main memory to the storage card. This is quite easy to do, but it isn't documented at all (go to the Book Menu, tap on a book and select transfer from the pop-up menu). Please note that, except for the multimedia features, everything can be properly installed on a Palm device. QuickVerse just made doing so a lot more trouble than it should have been. If you happen to own a Mac, then everything can be installed using a Mac running OSX, you just have to select all the parts manually.
Based on how well QuickVerse PDA runs on a Palm, I would expect that it should work fine on a PocketPC as well. The program is a great tool for serious Bible study, and allows you to carry a whole library for doing so in your pocket.
