What about a Mac version of Mantis Bible?

You have a great program and building a significant library of resources.

A Mac version would do well for study at the "home base" with the larger screen real estate. Also with sharing and syncing of notes and bookmarks, it would serve as a backup for these from the iPhone/iPod Touch.

Wouldn't most of the back-end port quickly with just the UI portion requiring significant development?

We will consider this, but most of our contracts with the publishers only cover the iPhone and iPod touch so there might be extensive additional licensing involved. It is a possibility, though.

Yes, I would like to see a Mac version. Someone really needs to compete with Accordance Bible Software. I think you have a good thing going on here and it would be nice to have a mac version that I could type my notes in and sync them with my IPhone. If you could keep the cost of the basic mac software down then I believe it would boost the IPhone software sales also.

I also agree. I have purchased several other resources (NIV, ISBE, PCOM) and would love to be able to sync my notes and highlights and use these resources on my laptop or desktop Mac....even if it required additional licensing fees. Thanks for a great product...God Bless.

Renewing the thread and adding my voice to those still interested in a Mac version. I use Online Bible software for the Mac (which really isn't "online") and like it a lot, but would consider updating to something that could sync well with my iTouch.

This is still something we are considering, but we have nothing to announce yet.

I agree. I am really enjoying the ability to get more from the Word through Mantis. it would be great to have a Mac Desktop Version. Its absolutely scandalous that you have to pay through the nose for top line Bible study mac software when all you're tying to do is get more into the word. Having a Mac version of Mantis at an affordable price would make scripture available for everyone. I'm all in favour of it. Good suggestion by the way Edwin.

Okay, it's five years since the last post. What is the decision on having a mac version of Mantis that would sync with our iPhones?

Let me add my voice to those who would like to see use of the Mantis Study Bible opened to our desktop or laptop.
