New Version of Hebrew Bible iPhone App Available

Yesterday, Apple approved Version 2.0 of my Hebrew Bible iPhone application. In addition to providing 8 different versions of the Hebrew Bible (which can either be read online with no content stored on the iPhone or cached locally for off-network reading) and Hebrew word lookup/lexicon, this version includes links to over 200 Wikipedia articles and provides Google Maps of over 1,000 locations.

Apple made me change the rating of the app to "17+" to indicate that there are "Frequent/Intense" types of "Mature/Suggestive Themes". Their reasoning for this was:

"Our review indicates that the application content is not consistent with the current rating. HebrewBible allows unfiltered access to, where content with mature or suggestive themes can be accessed."

Hmm, a rating of "17+" seems to boost sales of certain movies - maybe I can expect a sudden spike in downloads now! ;-)
