HebrewBible Version 7.1 now available on the Apple App Store

I've released an update that now provides compatibility with iOS 7. The update is iOS 7 only so can only be downloaded to devices that have been updated with iOS 7. However, in addition to the iOS 7 support, there are a fair number of additional enhancements and fixes in this update:

  1. Updated look and feel of app to conform to iOS 7 standards.
  2. Added new "on-device" Bible versions that all support the "touch Hebrew word for definition" functionality. They are:
    • Hebrew (cantillation)
    • Hebrew (vowels)
    • Hebrew (no vowels)
    • Hebrew/English (cantillation)
    • Hebrew/English (vowels)
    • Hebrew/English (no vowels)
  3. Fixed issue which sometimes caused the word definition popups to not appear.
  4. Fixed issue where Hebrew and English texts were not in-synch in Deuteronomy 5.
  5. Fixed broken word link in Genesis 14.5.
  6. Fixed numbering of verses in Psalm 70.
  7. Increased the size of the "X" used to close the word definition popup.
  8. On the iPhone version of the app, the "gear" icon has been eliminated. Now, you can temporarily switch Bible versions or change the app settings using an icon on the main Bible toolbar.
  9. Some miscellaneous fixes/updates.

The new version of the app is now available on the Apple App Store and I recommend that all current users who have iOS 7 on their device download the upgrade (it is a free upgrade for existing users of the app).
