One Time Software

Price: $4.99
Release Date: August 14, 2009

Memorizing scripture verses can actually be FUN and FAST! Whether you are waiting in line, on your lunch break, or kicking back at the end of the day, this simple and effective app will help you hide God's word in your heart. (Please read the fine print before purchasing...)

• Pick your favorite verses in your favorite Bible translation*
• 3 types of drills of increasing difficulty
• Track your progress and check-off verses you've fully memorized
• Review memorized verses as needed
• Define your own categories to organize your verses
• Can also be used to memorize poems, short speeches, movie lines, etc.

* The fine print: This app does not contain Bible verses (except just a few so you can try the app as soon as you open it). To get your fav verses in your fav translation, see 3 methods below.

Three ways to add verses to the app:
• direct entry into the app via iphone keyboard (laborious, but a great way to jump-start the process)
• direct entry on a computer, email it to your phone, copy from email, paste into the app
• lookup the passage via iphone's safari (e.g., biblegateway.com), copy from the web, paste into the app (the app will attempt to delete verse numbers for you)

This app is not localized, but the translation need not be an English translation (however, the third drill doesn't work with non-alphabetic languages such as Chinese).

If you plan to memorize a long passage, consider breaking it into smaller "bite size" entries. (The order of appearance in the drills will be the same as that of the verse list.)

iPhone OS: 3.0 or later

TS Eliot's poetry was as seductive as a mermaid's singing
He had learnt much of the earlier verse by heart, because its music was haunting. He didn't think he would remember much of the new poems. Certainly the Quartets show how far Eliot had travelled, and it was natural that some of his early admirers found ...
