Mantis Bible Study for Android Now Available
Mantis Bible Study for Android is now available from the Google Play App Store. If you have an Android phone or tablet, please give it a try, and be sure to share this news with your friends who have Android devices. Send your feedback or suggestions to Android <at> MantisBible.com.
4.9.18 Update Now Available
A few minor bugs have been fixed in this release. In addition, the tap-and-hold "hilite" feature has been removed. This feature was redundant and was not as powerful as the existing Tools / Highlighter feature. Since it also caused crashes in certain volumes at specific times, we chose to remove it. To highlight passages, tap Tools, then tap the highlighter icon to toggle the highlighter on. Then choose a color from the palette, tap the first word and then the last word in the selection you want to highlight. To highlight a single word, simply tap it twice.
Apple Releases Mantis Bible Study 4.9.17 Update

Analyze Verse Returns (Version 4.9.11 Released)

Version 4.9.10 Released
Apple has approved version 4.9.10 of the free version of Mantis Bible Study, which fixes the following bugs under iOS 5:
Tap-and-hold Define / Dict
NOTICE: iOS 5 contains it's own "Define" option that links to a built-in dictionary. To look up the selected word in any installed Bible Dictionaries you've purchased from Mantis, tap the right arrow icon and select the new "Dict" option.
Tap-and-hold, select a word, then select "Define" to view the built-in iOS 5 dictionary entry for that word.
Here is the built-in iOS 5 dictionary entry for "Jerusalem".
Tap-and-hold, tap the right arrow, then select "Dict" to view the selected word in any installed Bible Dictinoaries (sold separately.)
Here we see links for the "Jerusalem" entry in several installed Bible Dictionaries. Dictionaries that don't have an entry for the selected word are grayed out.
Analyze Verse will be fixed and operational again in 4.9.11, currently undergoing final testing. We expect to send this version to Apple for approval within the next few days. ** UPDATE ** We have already sent 4.9.11 to Apple. It is currently awaiting Apple's approval.
