PERSONALIZED AND SHARED READING
The 73 books of the Old and New Testament pop up in an animated index together with introductions and illustrated covers. The user can scroll the text up and down as an ongoing 3D roll and choose to use either the illustrated version or the one divided in single versets.
THE HOLY STORY THROUGH IMAGES
It is possible to read Bible essential episodes, from Creation to Apocalypse, from Moses to Christ, with the help of more than 600 images. They are equipped with versets to offer an effective summary of the tale.
THE BIBLE WORLD IN THE ATLAS AND 3D CHRONOLOGY
Places and events of the Bible world are presented in two virtual branches: the atlas and the chronology. Computer graphics reconstructions and satellite maps are illustrated by photos that show the archeological sites.
Symbols are gathered in 6 theme sections: universe, everyday life, animals and plants, human body, colours and numbers.
BibleWorld includes a 3D reconstruction of a virtual cathedral that becomes the synthesis of the whole Bible. The most significant Holy Scripture passages can be found exploring it like a videogame: the Genesis tale illustrated on the floor, the Apocalypse painted on the ceiling, prophets’ and apostles’ figures in the side naves.
What's New in Version 1.1.1
Bug fix & optimization ; solved a bug that in some cases would lock the product on English language
Potential is great but currently a little less than okay
I bought this app hoping to find a good interactive Bible atlas within. Most of the 3D and interactive things would be great if it were possible to move around and see all the things without having to click exit then go in especially in the maps. Also, within the cathedral there is a lot that is not viewable and again the controls are not good. I understand the programming that went into this would make it expensive but it is second rate at best right now and in my opinion not yet worth 10 dollars. I will be sure to change this review if I see some updates.
