Laridian has just released PocketBible 3.
Some of the new features included in this version are:
Color highlighting – mark the text of any Bible or book with 16 colors, underlining and
strike-through. List the verses you have highlighted, all at once or by color.
Continuous synchronization – Bibles, commentaries and other verse-based reference books always stay on the same verse.
Categorized Book Chooser – your PocketBible books are now divided into Bibles, Commentaries, Dictionaries, Devotionals and Other to make it easier for you to find and select the book you want.
Context-sensitive tap-and-hold menus – a faster, more convenient way to copy, highlight, search, add notes, set bookmarks, change books and more.
Find your notes – two new ways to locate verses where you’ve attached a note: search by any word or phrase or list all your notes.
New Verse Chooser – choose book, then chapter, then verse from a list. Sort books in alphabetical or biblical order.
Continuous text – no more page/chapter breaks.
Gesture-based navigation – tap the top of the screen to scroll up one line, tap the bottom to scroll down one line; tap left to go back one page, tap right to go to the next page.
DailyReader features have been combined into PocketBible 3 – Now you can track your progress through Bible reading plans and devotional books (available separately) right in PocketBible. And instantly reschedule if you fall behind.

A demo version of the product is available, and the upgrade costs $10.00. All PocketBible Bibles, reference books and DailyReader books have been updated to support the new features of PocketBible 3, and current users of PocketBible do not need to repurchase their books.
Incidentally, Memorize! for Pocket PC has also been updated to version 1.5, which adds the ability to import from the new Bibles and support for the Windows Mobile 5 softkeys.
