It sure would be helpful to have a chain-reference feature. Just a list of related Scriptures associated with each verse. P.S. I was just checking out Olivetree's new release for the iPhone out of curiosity since I used it so long with my PDA. Thank you LORD for my Mantis Bible!

By "chain-reference" do you mean click-able cross references?  If so, we are working on this already!  Once we firm something up, I'd like to share my ideas with you on how we plan to implement it and see what you think.

Yes, that sound exactly like what I'm referring to. And, in fact, it sounds very exciting! Man, you're really on the ball! I'd love to see what you're plans are, and would be more than happy to offer feedback.

God bless you and yours :-)

We have some special surprises in store for this kind of thing, too, once we get the basic cross-reference thing working.

The last reply on this is 2008. Is this available yet?

We've had click-able cross-references in just about all our products for a long time now.

I have found the cross-reference for a single word by clicking on an underlined word. Is there a cross-reference for a whole verse like you see in the margins of a bible? When I see a verse in all caps I would like to be able to see which old testament verse they are quoting. I would also like to be able to see similar verses in other book. If a verse cross-reference is available how do I use it. I have the NASS that came with the KJV.

Certain translations have cross-references built into the notes, such as the NIV and HCSB. All commentaries, dictionaries, and other books have linked references anywhere you see a scripture reference listed.

You can also get cross-references using the Analyze Verse feature if you have, say the TSK (Treasury of Scripture Knowledge) or something similar installed. It's not quite as convenient as the cross references in, say the NIV or HCSB, but it does work well. You tap the verse number, tap "Analyze Verse" then Commentaries, then view the TSK entry for that verse. It usually has many, many cross references for each verse.
