There is a new app in the app store that reads theWord modules. NO conversion needed--the software reads normal theWord modules. And it's FREE.

Author's website: http://www.holybibleanswer.com/

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ibible-study-hd/id597291980?ls=1&mt=8#

I would consider this a "beta" version:
  • I've noticed the app will not read compressed modules.

  • There is no theWord Book reader--just Dictionaries, Commentaries, and Bibles.

  • The default Bible is KJV with Strongs. Another default should be just the KJV. Why? Tooltip popups show the KJV with Strong text and there's no way to show just the KJV text in a tooltip unless you have the KJV installed (without Strongs). Small issue, easily fixed by downloading the KJV without strongs.

  • No way to change the font rendering--it uses a Times New Roman style font. I would personally prefer a less ornate font, like Tahoma or similar.

  • The Bible search works great, but no way to search other module formats.

  • I like clean designs on the iPad. I'm not a fan of colored toolbars. That can't be changed. Also, when you install it, you have to "de-clutter" the look of the app slightly. Click the settings icon and remove the KJV Strongs designations and the new verse [Aa] designations (the latter really gets in the way).
What do I like about this app?
  • It reads theWord's native modules. No format shifting or other nonsense which makes my job a LOT easier.

  • Another great thing: it supports two windows simultaneously. You can also define each window to show the content you prefer.

  • Read the Bible with each verse on a new line (e-Sword style) or by paragraph! Very nice! There's a time and a place for each but I love the paragraph style.

  • Show verse numbers in Bible paragraph or line by line mode--or not at all.

  • It's free!

  • Cross References from the Bible view.

You can download modules within the app.

You can also installing third party modules with iFunBox.

In the future, I would like to see a more seamless route! For example, an iOS developer an associate a file extension with their app. That way, when a user downloads a file with that extension, the app is launched, copying (or installing) the module into the app folder. I've seen this with other apps. I would love to see something that eliminates iFunBox.

This app already exists. It's called MySword: www.MySword.info

I spoke with the developer. He addressed my suggestions:
  • The app will not read compressed modules. [Answer from developer: pending help with Costas]

  • There is no theWord Book (.gbk.twm) reader--just Dictionaries, Commentaries, and Bibles. [Answer from developer: next release]

  • No way to change the font rendering--it uses a Times New Roman style font. I would personally prefer a less ornate font, like Tahoma or similar. [Answer from developer: next release]

  • Allow downloading of modules from websites, without using iFunBox to install them. (An iOS developer can associate a file extension with their app. That way, when a user downloads a module with that extension, the app is launched, copying (or installing) the module. [Answer from developer: probably next release]
