Good NT resource for Android users

As a fairly new owner of a smart phone running the Android OS, I was happy to find a Greek NT resource for only $0.99. This app, called simply “Westcott-Hort Greek New Testament” (don’t groan – see below), is based off that outdated but public domain edition, but is enhanced with morphological tagging, lexical data (from Strong’s, but please don’t hold that against it), and notes on significant variant readings from NA27 to mitigate deficiencies in the outdated Westcott-Hort text uncovered since 1881. The text of the AV is available by clicking on the verse numbers.

Use Barcode Scanner or click the image from your phone to download this app.

There are a couple interface issues, such as (currently) not giving the option to go to a particular verse; one must simply navigate to it from within its chapter. But hey, it beats paying more for other apps to give you access to the Greek NT, usually with fewer features than this app offers. If you’d like to try it out, remember that Android Market lets you refund your purchase within 24 hours with only the click of  a button. Highly recommended.

    took me a while to find a decent bible with tools for my android phone, but I am using “touch bible” – which is based on the NET bible.. I find it decent, readable, easy to search, and it has some nice little translation notes and so forth.

    Also i like “beautiful widgets” which cost .99c as well.

  • Geoff, welcome, and thanks for the recommendations! I'm impressed that
    someone has ported more than the “limited preview” notes for the NET;
    they're the most indispensable part of that translation to me.

    Thanks again!

    no problem. Unfortunately I only have an HTC Magic (the old one), so its a bit underpowered. I'd kill for a nexus one or something with some decent processing horsepower.

    Some other apps I find useful are: wordpress, foursquare, toddlerlock (my 3 yr old LOVES this), carr matey, and twidroid.
    If you need a decent turn by turn gps, co-pilot live seems to do the trick.

  • Oh this topic… no problem. Unfortunately I only have an HTC Magic (the old one), so its a bit underpowered. I’d kill for a nexus one or something with some decent processing horsepower.

    If you need a decent turn on GPS, the pilot lived, it seems, does its job. Nice to visit your site. Wish you post another good topic like this. I will wait to read it.
