HebrewBible Version 8.1 now available on the Apple App Store

A new version of my Hebrew Bible app is now available on the Apple App Store. It contains the following changes:

  1. Enhancement: Support for iOS 8.
  2. Enhancement: Support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices (with their larger screens).
  3. Enhancement/Fix: In the past, Bible text audio was streamed from the Snunit educational site in Israel. This site has recently had extended down-time and performance issues so I now stream the audio from the Mechon Mamre site (also in Israel). The audio streaming from Mechon Mamre is much more reliable and the performance is better as well. My apologies to those of you who weren't able to hear the audio this past week while the Snunit site has been down. Also, for those users who don't want to rely on Internet streaming of the audio, I've posted some instructions detailing how to download the audio files to your device. Downloading all of the audio files will require about 1GB of space on your device so, unless you use the audio functionality a lot, you may choose to just continue streaming the audio from the Internet.
  4. Fix: A number of minor text and other fixes were included in this release.
I recommend that all current users download the update from the Apple App Store (it is a free update for existing users of the app).
