Equipd Bible Version 3.8.1

This update introduces an improved search tool and fixes several issues introduced with version 3.8.0.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue with audio not playing when switching to a new chapter.
  • Fixed issue with the notes not refreshing when opening a scripture from the History, Bookmarks, or Notes windows.
  • Fixed random crashes when initially opening the app inside Split Screen mode.
  • Fixed issue with verse numbers not being included in a copied scripture when using the smallest Split Screen size.

I apologise for any inconvenience caused by the above issues.

New Bible Search

Several improvements to the Bible search tool.

  • Significantly faster search times.
  • You can now use “quotes” to search for an exact phrase. For example search for “in the beginning”.
  • A counter shows the number of matching verses (see screenshot).
  • All matching search words or phrases within the verse are highlighted.

    

Note: The first time you go to search a specific Bible, it will perform a one-off process to speed up the search. It can take up to 60 seconds for this process to complete. Please just be patient – you will only need to wait for this once.

    • Change your preference in Settings > Bible Settings > Detect Scriptures in Clipboard. This button is not enabled for an iPhone.
