Are you planning to update to take advantage of larger display of Ipad or just let us who plan to get one run it double pixel mode?

We haven't analyzed the SDK yet, but if it's a matter of making minor changes to allow for a better full-screen version of Mantis, we'll do this. If it means re-writing the app from scratch, then probably not.

I'm looking to buy an ipad and I'm really looking forward to using Mantis Bible App on it. That's actually what I want the ipad for as a portable Bible study computer bigger than my iPhone. So I for one am hoping Mantis to support it also. If Mantis makes an app just for the ipad I hope I can use the files I already paid for.

I'm a developer (and pastor) but I do not program for Mantis (I can only wish.) it is very unlikely you will have to pay for anything twice to use Mantis on your iPhone And your iPad. Some developers may charge a nominal fee to run their app on more than one device but I know whatever Mantis does will be well worth it.

As far as developing the app for the iPad, very little new programming will be needed. But wow, Mantis has so thoughtfully and skillfully crammed so much into so little space on the iPhone, the iPad will allow them to add funtionality that they have hesitated to add due to its negative impact on the beauty and ease of use of Mantis. It would be a shame to NOT take advantage of the new realestate. Maybe down the road they might develope an iPad specific app that can take advantage of the additional space beyond simply increasing its size.

I ALSO am looking forward to Mantis Bible Study on the iPad. I've had some of the best Bible study softwares on my PCs and Macs over the years, but nothing has ever come close to what I now carry in my shirt pocket. Having Mantis Bible Study on an iPad would be far beyond the ultimate tool! Having the option to have them automatically synchonized upon running would be a must. When I put down my iPad and head out the door with my iPhone, I'm going to want to pick up right where I left off. So will most users (but not all).

We are working on an iPad-specific version of Mantis. Look for it in the coming weeks!
