Description

Welcome to Equipd 3.1!

The next generation of Equipd is finally here:

*** Multiple Bible Languages and Translations ***
Read the Bible in over 100 languages, side-by-side. Compare the rendering of verses across different translations. Copy scriptures into your notes with one click. Listen to the Bible audio for many languages.

*** A Complete Library ***
Equipd provides easy access to the Watchtower and Awake magazines, Insight Volumes, Research Guide, Books, Brochures, Tracts and Yearbooks on WOL in over 150 languages. Many publications feature images and audio. Easily update a publication if the source material is changed on WOL. Quickly jump straight to the article on WOL to do more research.

*** Study Efficiently ***
The unique workflow of Equipd allows you to navigate between the Bible, study tools and publications with ease. It is optimised for use in the ministry, in personal study, or at the meetings. Use the supported gestures (such as swiping, two-finger tapping, and pinch/zoom) to get the most out of Equipd.

*** RSS and Podcast Feed Readers ***
Keep on top of the latest announcements, videos, and press releases from JW.org.

*** Language Translation Tools ***
Multiple ways to switch a Bible chapter or article you are reading between different languages. Tight integration with the iOS dictionary, with WOL.jw.org, with the Insight Volumes, and with Pleco. Those in the Chinese foreign language field get access to to auto-generated Pinyin, Zhuyin and Sidney Lau above the characters, or toggle the characters on/off.

*** Cache for Offline use ***
All text-based content and images can be saved for offline use. Read the content later, no Internet required!

*** Organise YOUR content ***
Bookmark your favourite scriptures. Save your favourite articles to the Briefcase by Topic, and group your favourite publications for quick access.

*** Annotations ***
Underline and highlight content from the publications and articles. You can add Notes right next to content it relates to, and even tell the Note to expand the text to show in the article so you can read it immediately without clicking.

There are so many other features in Equipd - I cannot list them all here. Overall I hope the hundreds of hours spent developing Equipd enables you to be "completely equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:17). Especially those working hard in the foreign language field!

Devices Supported

Equipd requires iOS 7.0 and above. Any device that can run iOS 7 can also run Equipd, although an iPad 4+ or iPhone 5+ is recommended for optimum experience.

What's New

Version 3.1.0 (Jun 07, 2014)

This update offers a number of new features. It also contains low level bug fixes and performance improvements.

Before describing new features, can I encourage users to always check the Support Forums or email support@equipd.me if you have issues or questions, as opposed to writing to me via App Store Reviews. I cannot reply to an App Store Review - and thus cannot help you. For example a number of users wrote they could not find the Concordance, or were having issues with Equipd forgetting settings. Both of these topics are covered on the Support Forums.

So ... what's new in Equipd 3.1?

Notes
-------

I am excited to announce support for Notes alongside your highlighting and underlining. Equipd Notes have some nice features - such as the ability to have the Note sit right next to relevant content, instead of just sitting in the side margin. You can also "Expand" a note to show the text right in the article, no need to click before you can read it.

To add a Note, just select some text and click "Note" in the option menu. The Note will be inserted to the right of the selected text.

Startup Options
-----------------

Get access to content quickly based on how you use Equipd. You can now open Equipd directly to the Favourite Publications section instead of the Today screen. Or iPhone users can tell Equipd to launch into the Today screen for the first time.

Some users on older devices have found the Bible window performs slowly for them, especially when repeatedly switching between apps. I encourage you to check the article on the Support Forums about "Troubleshooting Slow Performance". I am also pleased to offer the "Bible Only" startup mode, which opens Equipd directly into the full-screen Bible window. This mode is optimised for performance and keeping memory (RAM) usage to a minimum.

New Backup Options
--------------------

You can now backup your annotations, briefcase, and news items in one step. In Admin > Backups you can generate a backup email, and specify reminder settings to prompt you to take a backup frequently. The backup is just a zip file that can be restored directly from the email attachment, or via iTunes.

Song Picker (iPad Only)
-------------------------

There is now a new Song Picker to make it quicker to select the song at the meeting. It will automatically appear if you open the Song book. If you have come via a direct link to a specific song, it will not auto-appear - but you can access it by clicking the window title bar.

Study Questions
-----------------

You may have noticed that the Study Questions were regenerated each time you loaded an article. So if you added annotations to a question it would be missing next time you loaded the content. As of 3.1.0 Equipd will preserve annotations in the study questions.

---

I hope you enjoy these new features.

If you could take a moment to share your feedback on the App Store it would be appreciated.

Agape,

Matthew

Version 3.0.1 (Apr 08, 2014)

3.0.1 fixes issues some users were experiencing with 3.0 and updates the publications in a few languages. See the Support Forums for details: http://support.equipd.me

---

Equipd 3.0 is here! Finally!! Thanks to everyone for your patience.

Equipd 3.0 is a total rethink of the app. It features a new look and feel, a new workflow and much more content than ever before. I think you are going to love it - but please expect a "break-in period" while you get used to the changes and learn all the different ways to navigate around the app.

Some notable changes include:

* Full screen Bible and Publication windows.

* Take note! Content has been "hidden" in the side panels of these full-screen windows. Swipe in from the LEFT side of the screen to change chapters in a publication, or to change your Bibles. Or swipe in from the RIGHT side of the screen to access your History and your Favourites.

* The Today screen from WOL featuring the Daily Text, the weeks TMS schedule, and the Watchtower study and songs.

* The Research Guide, Watchtower and Awakes, and all of the Books, Brochures, Yearbooks, Tracts on WOL can be cached offline.

* The King James Version with Strong's Concordance has been added for viewing the original Hebrew and Greek text.

* Quick access from the Bible screen to the Concordance or Bible Word Index and the NWT 2013 Book Outlines / Questions / Appendices.

* The restoration of Chinese Pinyin for all users! Also featuring support for Zhuyin and Sidney Lau, with support for the 2line format, or toggle the characters on/off.

There are so many new features to tell you about, but not enough room here. Check out the Support Forums for a more detailed introduction to Equipd 3.0.

---

IMPORTANT:

You will have to recache much of the content in Equipd as part of this upgrade.

While every effort has been made to retain your Briefcase and settings, it is possible that the upgrade may encounter difficulty doing this. This is worst case scenario but please be prepared. Maybe email yourself a backup your Briefcase in Admin > Briefcase.

Some users have had their Equipd get so confused that they have just deleted Equipd and reinstall. But a reinstall seems to fix the issues they were having. I am really sorry if this happens to you and am working with users to isolate what the issues are.

---

Please let me know what you think of Equipd 3.0 by leaving a review on the App Store. It has taken hundreds of hours to get to this point, and your feedback is always appreciated.

Agape from New Zealand,

Matthew

NOTE: Work has been started on localizing Equipd to Portuguese, Spanish, French, Danish, Japanese, Russian, German and Dutch. This is work in progress. If you would like to help with Chinese Simplified/Traditional or other languages please check the Support Forums for details.

Version 2.7.1 (Dec 18, 2013)

THIS IS THE LAST VERSION OF EQUIPD TO SUPPORT iOS 5

Version 2.7.1 Update
--------------------

Resolves a couple of issues from the 2.7.0 update.

REMINDER: If you are experiencing problems with your Bible make sure that you clear your cache! Go into the Admin tab (the last icon in the black bar along the bottom) > Bible > English > "Clear All Cached Files" ... and then re-cache the files. Do this for all languages affected.

Version 2.7.0 Update
--------------------

This is a snapshot release that is primarily focussed on fixing the issues with caching the Bible caused by changes on WOL.

But ... while we are at it, there are a few new features included as well.

Here is a summary of the changes:

1) Fixes to the caching of all Bible's in Equipd.

IMPORTANT: If you are having problems with your Bible chapters showing content, you will need to go into the Admin tab (along the bottom) > Bible > English > "Clear All Cached Files" ... and then re-cache the files. Do this for all languages affected.

2) Initial support for the NWT 2013 Revision including Cross-References and Footnotes. Again existing users will need to clear their existing English Bible cache to download the updated 2013 files.

3) View the NWT 2013 Revision and the Rbi8 Version side-by-side

4) Rbi8 Footnotes support added for Danish, Dutch, French, Japanese, German, Spanish, Portuguese

5) Over 20 new languages added

6) Images added to the Jehovah's Will and Good News Brochures

7) Changes to hopefully support the as yet to be released Examining the Scriptures Daily 2014 EPUB files

--

This update does not fix the minor issues caused by iOS 7 and identified on the Support Forums: http://support.equipd.me

The coming major release of Equipd 3.0 has been pushed back for finalisation of several key features and quality assurance. Version 3.0 will support iOS 6 and 7, with iOS 7 being the primary target platform. Contrary to initial plans, and for a number of very good reasons, iOS 5.X will NOT be supported by Equipd 3.0.

I encourage you to read more about Equipd 3.0 here:
http://www.equipd.me/go/3.0

Thanks to everyone for your continued support. There are a lot of exciting updates to come yet!

Version 2.6.3 (Sep 03, 2013)

New Bible Translations
---------------------

The following Public Domain Bible's have been added to Equipd:

* The English Darby Bible translation which includes Jehovah's name in the Hebrew Scriptures.

* The German Elberfelder Bible translation which includes Jehovah's name in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Improvements
---------------

* Re-enabled the images in emails generated from the Briefcase

* Fixed the audio for Psalms in Spanish (other books in Spanish were fine)

iOS 7 Support
--------------

Equipd seems to be working fine in iOS 7 for the most part - there is one known issue with the Bible scroller that I am looking at. My recommendation, if you "rely" on Equipd, is still to hold off on installing iOS 7 until I have confirmed everything is OK.

Version 2.6.2 (Aug 19, 2013)

Please take the time to read the update notes below.

Bible Picker
-----------

* On the iPad you can now choose between 3 sizes for the Bible Picker - "Small", "Medium (Default)" and "Fullscreen".

* On the iPad you can optionally hide the Picker after selecting a Chapter.

Briefcase
---------

* Caching of Briefcase images! As you save articles from the WOL Browser to the Briefcase it will automatically cache the images.

NOTE: For articles already cached, you will need to manually open them, and if you are online then the images will be automatically cached.

* Briefcase articles now show the reference (eg "w11 6/15 pp. 11-15") in the "scroll to" popover that shows when you tap the article Title in the top black bar.

News Module
-------------

* Option to disable the App Badge showing the number of unread News items

* Option to automatically delete items older than 3 months from today. i.e. if today is August 1st then it will delete items older than May 1st. It will delete both JW.org News items and Magazine Podcast items. This is automatically enabled for new users - and it is recommended that existing users turn this on.

* Improved detection of duplicate News items in the RSS feeds. Any existing duplicate news items can be manually deleted by swiping right-to-left and then clicking the red "Delete" button.

Chinese Support
----------------

As part of the ongoing effort to improve support for Chinese learners I have enabled the following:

* Support for Chinese Traditional with Zhuyin (Bopomofo)! This should be a great help to students trying to learn Chinese Traditional Characters, especially in Taiwan.

* Content menu integration with the Pleco app. If you have Pleco installed, and you select a word, character or group of characters, then the content menu will show a new option to search Pleco. Once you have completed the search in Pleco you can click the "Return to Equipd" button.

Other Language Improvements
----------------------------

* 6 new languages - Thai, Malay, Ewe, Oromo, Iloko, Pangasinan, Wolaita.

* Yearbook 2013 added in a number of languages.

* Added images to the Yearbook 2013 for all languages that support it (English, German, Italian). Important: You will need to clear your Yearbook cache AND your Annotations file if you want to see the updated HTML with the images included.

* Added scripture detection in Thai (Greek Scriptures), and all the available Thai Vocal Melodies.

* Updated the available Vocal Melodies in a number of languages, including the new English Vocal Renditions, Disk 6.

* Fixed issue where the audio for Chinese publications was playing Cantonese. Also re-enabled the audio for the Vocal Melodies in Chinese.

* Added Daily Text 2013 EPUB in Uzbek and Thai.

* Added Young People Ask 1 & 2 in Spanish.

Other Improvements
-------------------

* Context menu integration with WOL. Select some text and click "WOL" from the menu to open and search WOL for the selected phrase.

* The Multi-Language Chapter View is now Fullscreen with wider margins, more like the Safari "Reader" mode.

Annotations BETA Reminder
-------------------------

Some users seem to have missed the fact that version 2.6.0 added support for highlighting and underlining in Equipd. You need to agree to the terms of the Beta and turn this feature on in Admin > Annotations.

Changing Minimum Requirements
------------------------------

The next update to Equipd will change the minimum required version of iOS from 4.3 to 5.0. This means that Equipd will no longer install or update unless your device is running iOS 5.0 or higher.

Request

Version 2.6.1 (Jul 24, 2013)

New Scripture Lookup Option
----------------------------

Especially useful for the smaller screen of an iPhone this new lookup option provides a quick way of accessing all Bible books at once and then selecting the chapter / verse. It is tightly integrated with the existing navigation scroller, so updating one updates the other. On the iPad it also offers the advantage of showing the full Bible Book name, instead of just the abbreviation.

To open the new Bible Picker just tap the scripture in the black title bar, above the 3 navigation scrollers - you will see there is a small "down" arrow under the scripture. You can also use the "Shake" gesture to open this lookup option from anywhere in Equipd.

Change the Bible Lookup Language
---------------------------------

You can now change the language used to display the Bible Book names. Only languages that Equipd supports scripture lookups for can be used. Go to the Admin Tab > Bible > and change the "Bible Navigation Language".

Other Enhancements
---------------------

* Fixed the Bible audio. The MP3 files on the JW.org servers were renamed which broke the streaming.

* Added a button to easily copy the NWT Footnotes and Cross-References

* 12 new languages - Hindi, Bicol, Cebuano, Macedonian, Mixe, Sidama, Solomon Islands Pidgin, Chichewa, Urdu, Waray-Waray, Zapotec (Isthmus), Quechua (Bolivia)

* Scripture and Clipboard Lookups for Hindi and Haitian Creole (both Greek Scriptures only)

* Added Yearbook 2013 in a number of languages

* Added multiple books in Korean and Japanese

* The Equipd App Icon will now indicate how many unread items you have in the News feed

* Improved scripture detection for Dutch , Italian and Spanish

* Fixed the swipe to switch languages in the Songbook and Insight Volumes

* Fixed issue with annotating Chinese 2-Lines content in the Briefcase

* Ministry School Book now supports jumping to subheadings for the Study Topics (1-53)

iOS 7
-------

I have had a few enquiries about Equipd working on iOS 7, which is still several months away from final release. Equipd is "mostly" working in iOS 7 Beta 3. But the official stance still is - if you rely on Equipd, then please do not install iOS 7 until I have confirmed official support for this platform.

Changing Minimum Requirements
--------------------------------

Please be warned that in the near future the minimum required version of iOS will be changed from 4.3 to 5.0. This means that Equipd will no longer install or update unless your device is running iOS 5.0 or higher.

Version 2.6.0 (Jul 03, 2013)

This is a major update to Equipd. You are encouraged to read about all the changes below...

Annotations BETA
-------------------

I am making available an early prototype of Annotations support for underlining and highlighting (no notes yet). Annotations only work for the Library Publications (excluding the Daily Text) and your Briefcase articles.

NOTE: To use Annotations you need to turn it on in ADMIN > ANNOTATIONS and agree to the terms of the Beta release.

NWT Cross-References
-----------------------

All languages that have the Rbi8 Bible on WOL now have access to the full NWT Cross-References! If your Bible cache is very old (pre-WOL) then please re-cache the Bible.

NWT Footnotes (English)
--------------------------

The English NWT Bible now contains the Footnotes! Other languages will be added over time.

Study Questions
-------------------

Content from WOL is now automatically reformatted to show the study questions before the paragraphs.

Publication Footnotes
-----------------------

Publication Footnotes for all languages can now be viewed in a popup window, minimising the need to scroll.

Images in the Briefcase
------------------------

You can now optionally have the images loaded from WOL and displayed in your Briefcase articles. These images are not pre-cached, and they will only load if your device has an active Internet Connection. If there is no Internet Connection then the images will not be displayed. You can turn this feature off in Admin > Briefcase if you want to avoid mobile data charges.

Jump to Sub-Headings
-----------------------

By clicking on the Title in the top black bar you can now jump directly to Sub-Headings in the article, or to the top of the page.

Scripture Popups
------------------

Scriptures references now show in a popup when you click them. Works for all languages that support scripture lookups in Equipd. Can be disabled in Admin > Bible.

Pre-caching Improvements
---------------------------

Faster pre-caching and the option to hide the window to carry on using Equipd while it is caching content.

Scroll Locations Remembered
------------------------------

The Library and Briefcase now remembers the scroll location as part of the History. When you return to a chapter, it will auto-scroll down to where you were last located.

All Books Included!
-------------------

All remaining books from WOL are now in Equipd! Isaiah 1 & 2, YPA 1 & 2, Worship God, and the Bible Stories Book.

* The Briefcase article search now includes the reference - so you can now search for all "w13" for example

* Larger Bible Chapter window (used in multi-language mode)

* Added initial support for scripture lookups in Afrikaans, Dutch, Danish, German, Portuguese and Italian.

iOS 7

I have had a few enquiries about Equipd working on iOS 7, which is still several months away from release. The official stance is - if you rely on Equipd, then please do not install iOS 7 until I have confirmed official support for this platform.

Version 2.5.0 (Jun 05, 2013)

Lots of exciting features included in this update!

Pinyin Support!
----------------

I am pleased to report that I have come up with a way to support Chinese Pinyin without breaching copyright. Using the existing Chinese Simplified content you have cached directly from WOL, Equipd will now automatically transliterate and add the Pinyin above the characters in a 2-line format.

There are some limitations with the approach being used, such as the fact that it does not break out the individual words - it is directly transliterating each character on an individual basis. You cannot copy the Pinyin - if you select the text and "copy" it will only contain the Chinese Simplified. Also the accuracy is "best attempt", although it seems to have a reasonably high accuracy rate.

On the plus side this new approach has meant that Equipd can add Pinyin to ANY content in Chinese Simplified. You can choose the 2-line format for not just the NWT, but for all publications in the Library as well, including the Daily Text and the Song Book.

To enable this option please choose "Chinese (2 Lines)" from the various Language menus around Equipd - it will be listed right alongside "Chinese Simplified".

In Admin > Briefcase, you can also tell Equipd to use the 2-line format for any content you save into your Briefcase in Chinese Simplified.

I sincerely hope that the effort made to enable Chinese Pinyin in Equipd will help our brothers and sisters in the Chinese field.

PS: For users who qualified, the old Pinyin NWT support will still work. The 2-line format is supplementary.

Auto-Scroll to Verse on iPhone / iPod Touch
----------------------------------------

This feature has been on the iPad since version 1.0, but I am pleased to now add this feature to the smaller screen devices as well. Now when using Equipd for just one language (eg English only), when you select a scripture or select a verse it will auto-scroll to the verse.

If you do not like this improvement, then you can turn it off in Admin.

Other Enhancements
----------------------

* New Language - Kirundi

* New Language - Tongan

* New Language - Tsonga

* Images added for the Bible Teach Book (currently English only).

* Overall improvements to the rendering of publication Images - they now scale to the screen size and have greater impact and visibility. Improved support and formatting of the image captions.

* Improvements to the Browser windows for JW.org and WOL on the iPad. The pages should complete loading slightly faster, and you can now rotate the device without losing your place on the page, or having the videos restart half-way through playback.

* Added Come Be My Follower in Punjabi

* Fixed bug with Spanish scripture lookup not working for "Salmo" (singular)

* Fixed bug with showing multiple Bible languages and the last one not updating / resizing correctly

Version 2.4.1 (Mar 06, 2013)

* The "Good News" brochure is now supported in an additional 8 languages.

* Vietnamese support added.

Version 2.2.2 (Feb 11, 2013)

THIS UPDATE SHOULD FIX ALL ISSUES WITH SHOWING SCRIPTURES FROM WOL.

Thanks to Apple Developer Technical Support for helping me locate and fix this issue. And a big thanks to all users of Equipd for your patience while I got this resolved. I apologise for any confusion and any frustration caused while this was being fixed.

You should not need to re-cache any content, with the exception of the Arabic NWT Bible if you are using that.

Now that all issues are resolved, let's recap the recent changes to Equipd:

* Chinese Pinyin support for the NWT dropped for NEW users because of copyright issues. If you have been using Pinyin in the past you can continue to use it - email me using support@equipd.me if the upgrade has removed your Pinyin Bible.

* New languages supported in the Library - Albanian, Armenian, Bulgarian, Kazakh, Maya, Shona, and Uzbek.

* Added full NWT Bible in Shona, and Greek Scriptures only for Kazakh, Maya and Uzbek bringing total NWT languages in Equipd to 55.

* Hungarian support for the All Scripture Inspired Book.

* Bible Teach Book in 45 languages

* God's Love Book in 45 languages

* Jeremiah Book in 40 languages

* The new brochure "Good News From God!" in 28 languages

---

I have been swamped with support emails over the last few days. I apologise that I have not had time to respond to many of them as my focus was on resolving all issues and getting this update out as fast as possible. I will endeavour to respond to all emails over the next few days.

Thanks again to everybody for your patience waiting for this update.

Version 2.2.0 (Feb 06, 2013)

PLEASE NOTE - THIS UPDATE HAS NOT RESOLVED THE ISSUE WITH WOL. I RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT INSTALL THIS UPDATE, JUST WAIT UNTIL I CHANGE THIS MESSAGE.

Recent updates to the Watchtower Online Library introduced breaking changes to the HTML source code. Equipd was not able to interpret and display the Bible verses or correctly format content for the Library or Briefcase. This update fixes all known issues - everything should work again.

Please note the following:

* You should not need to re-cache content with the exception of the Arabic Bible (see next item on list). The new parser will auto-detect the format and supports both the older and newer HTML. There is no significant advantage to users for either version.

* Arabic Bible users - please clear your Bible cache for Arabic and re-cache the chapters. The older HTML format is no longer supported for Arabic and scriptures will no longer display if you have the older version cached.

As a small compensation for the above issue I have included in this update:

* Initial support for Armenian and Albanian

* Added support for Hungarian in the All Scripture Inspired

* Added new publications I was already working on to the Library - Bible Teach, Jeremiah Book, the newly released "Good News" brochure, and the God's Love book. Further enhancements to these publications will come in a future update.

Reality Check
----------------

I would like to point out that this type of issue will likely happen again at some point in the future due to the fact that Equipd is totally dependent on caching the source files from WOL. Any changes to the HTML code in these source files could impact on Equipd. I will do everything possible to minimise such issues, but it is a good reminder as to how Equipd works and the challenges with this approach. At least we know that all material is being sourced directly from jw.org, as we are encouraged to do.

I should also clarify that this issue did not affect users who had already cached the files from WOL. This is the best thing you can do to minimise downtime in the future.

Thanks to everybody for your patience and understanding.

Version 2.1.5 (Jan 31, 2013)

This update is removing support for the Chinese Pinyin version of the New World Translation for NEW users of Equipd. Please read the announcements below for details.

Announcement 1
-------------------

The Legal Department of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society recently analyzed Equipd and were satisfied that Equipd meets their requirements from a legal and copyright perspective ... with the exception of the Chinese Pinyin version of the New World Translation (NWT) that I generated to help those of us learning Chinese. This is not an official version of the NWT. As such, the Legal Department have asked me to remove this feature for new users of Equipd. They explicitly mentioned that current users of Equipd who are using the Chinese Pinyin can carry on doing so.

As a result this update will remove any support for Pinyin version of the NWT for NEW users of Equipd - i.e. users who download and install Equipd for the first time from this point forward.

As mentioned, existing users who are using the Pinyin will still have access to the Pinyin version. Some current users of the Pinyin are worried about installing the update - please do not panic. If something does go wrong and the Pinyin is no longer showing for you, let me know and I can re-enable it for you.

In the medium to long-term I will be exploring alternate ways of supporting Chinese Pinyin in Equipd that do not infringe on copyright. Of course if the Pinyin version of the NWT becomes available on JW.org then I will add support for it ASAP!

Announcement 2
-------------------

Equipd is coming up to one year old in March! It has come a long way in 10 months, and I would like to thank all users of Equipd for the overwhelmingly positive feedback and encouragement I have received.

A few months after Equipd was released the Watchtower Online Library (WOL) was announced, and what a blessing that tool has become. I have managed to optimise Equipd to work with WOL to a limited degree, but there is much more I would like to do.

Over the past few weeks I have had a chance to step back and take a fresh look at Equipd. I have reviewed some of the feedback and suggestions received from users, and re-looked at a number of ideas I have been designing over the past months. As a result I would like to announce that version 3.0 will be a fresh take on Equipd - a total rewrite from the ground up. This will result in a far more powerful Equipd that will be more flexible and provide a better base platform to support many exciting new features. This newer version will also be optimised to support Android, although iOS will be the initial release platform.

As a result of this decision please note the following:

1) I will continue to improve and support the current Equipd 2.X version of Equipd, but all "major" changes will be moved to version 3.X. Version 3.X will of course be a free upgrade for all current users of Equipd.

2) The development of the Android version of Equipd will be pushed back until some time after Equipd version 3.0 for iOS is released, with an eta of late 2013, or even early 2014. I have been swamped with users requesting Equipd on Android, so sorry for delaying this, but iOS is my primary target platform. On the upside you will be getting a much better version of Equipd when it is released!

Thanks to all for your ongoing support.

NEW NOTICE 4pm 2/2/2013: EQUIPD IS CURRENTLY NOT WORKING DUE TO RECENT UPDATES TO THE WATCHTOWER ONLINE LIBRARY. I AM WORKING ON A FIX BUT IT WILL BE A NUMBER OF DAYS BEFORE IT APPEARS ON THE APP STORE. DO NOT PURCHASE EQUIPD IF YOU WANT IT TO WORK NOW.

---------------------

* Improved the speed of switching between Equipd and other apps and back again.

* Fixed issue with download of Swedish ESD 2013 EPUB file

* In Admin > Bible the "Clear All Cache" has been moved out of the way below the list of Bibles.

* In the Bible "History" menu there is now a "Clear All" button to easily clear all history items. To see this you must first click the "Edit" button in the History menu. iPad only.

* In the Bible "Bookmarks" menu there is now a "Clear All" button to easily clear all bookmarks. To see this you must first click the "Edit" button in the Bookmarks menu. iPad only.

NEW: Alternate Bible Versions
===========================

I am pleased to make available a feature I have been working on for a while - support for 26 alternate Bible versions for side-by-side viewing next to the NWT languages in Equipd. Check out the wording of scriptures in other Bibles, see if the verses contain Jehovah's name. Here is a complete list of the alternate Bible versions added...

5 alternate Bibles in English:

* American Standard Version (ASV)
* Douay-Rheims Bible (DRB)
* King James Version (KJV)
* World English Bible (WEB)
* Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

21 alternate Bibles in other languages:

* Afrikaans Ou Vertaling (AOV)
* Chinese Union Version (Simplified) (CUV-S)
* Chinese Union Version (Traditional) (CUV-T)
* French Darby Bible (FDB)
* French Louis Segond (FLS)
* German Luther Bible (GLB)
* Greek Bible by Vamvas (VAMVAS)
* Hungarian Károli Bible (HKB)
* Icelandic Bible (ICE)
* Latin Vulgate (VULGATE)
* Māori Bible (MAORI)
* Norsk Bible (NORSK)
* Polish Biblia Gdanska (PBG)
* Portuguese Bíblia de Almeida (PJFA)
* Romanian Cornilescu Translation (RDCT)
* Romanian Orthodox Bible (ROB)
* Russian Synodal Text (RST)
* Tagalog Ang Biblia (TAB)
* Thai King James Version (TKJV)
* Ukrainian Bible by Ivan Ogienko (UBIO)
* Vietnamese Bible 1934 (VIET)

These alternate translations have been made available for comparison purposes. The text/html for each Bible are stored on the Equipd Servers and will be requested from these servers on demand. They can also be pre-cached for offline use in Admin > Bible. Other Bible versions will be added over time.

To enable alternate translations use the "Bibles" button in the toolbar, at the top/left of the Bible screen.

Other notable changes
=====================

* I have migrated most NWT Bible languages to cache from the Watchtower Online Library Bible (Rbi8) instead of the Bible on jw.org. This will provide more options moving forward. The Equipd parser has been re-written for the WOL format and will render the content faster and with improved verse formatting with indents, italics, diacritics etc.

If you get a chance...

Version 2.0.0 (Nov 05, 2012)

New Features and Publications!
===========================

* New "Open from Clipboard" feature. If you have a valid scripture in your clipboard when you open Equipd, it will look it up for you! Go into Admin > Bible to choose what language Equipd should be detecting scriptures in - 7 languages currently have scripture lookup support in Equipd.

* The Reasoning Book in 14 languages. Pre-cache for offline use.

* The All Scripture Inspired Book in 4 languages. Pre-cache for offline use.

* See the Good Land in 38 languages. Pre-cache both the chapters and images for offline use, with an Image Viewer for the maps.

* Sing to Jehovah in 38 languages. Pre-cache of the lyrics. Supports streaming audio of both the piano and vocal renditions where applicable (audio requires Internet connection)

* The Ministry School Book in 38 languages. Pre-cache for offline use.

Introducing the Briefcase module!
==============================

Ever wanted to save the article you were reading on WOL into Equipd and have it pre-cached so it was always available … offline? ANY article on WOL?

Now you can. In the WOL Browser just click the "+" button to put the article into your Briefcase and take it away with you. The article Title and Reference are automatically detected - and you can change them how you like. You can also group your articles by Topics that you can add, rename and delete.

Once you have a nice collection of articles on a topic you can even "Share List of Articles" and email them to a friend to click on the links on their computer - or if they use Equipd as well, they can just click a link and automatically import the articles into a new list! In Admin you can also manually Backup your entire Briefcase at once.

I hope you will enjoy this module as much as I do!

General Improvements
======================

* Total redesign of the Single Language View for a much cleaner interface, with no compromise of the Multi-Language Bible view

* Users can now set the default language for the WOL and JW.org websites in Admin

* A number of enhancements to the WOL and JW.org browser - now supports downloading PDF and EPUB files, faster launch times and more.

* Restored the Full-Screen mode on iPhone for multi-language mode only. This will not work when using the Bible in Single Language mode.

* Fixed Insight Volume topic list in Chinese Simplified.

* Fixed error with parsing the chapter html for Rev 22 in Spanish and French.

* Improved the Pre-cache experience to refresh the total downloaded files when completed.

* Improved link handling. Better detection of scriptures, and now falls back to WOL if it is able to for scripture lookups in languages that Equipd does not yet support lookups for, and for random links that Equipd does not know how to handle.

A Personal Request

Version 1.3.2 (Oct 02, 2012)

* Official support for iOS 6. It will no longer crash when you go into Admin and pre-cache the Bible and Insight Volumes for offline use. A big thank you to everyone for your patience in waiting for these fixes.

* Support for the taller screen on the iPhone 5.

* Scripture lookups for Polish and Korean when clicking links in Insight Volume and ESD.

* French pre-cache support added for Insight Volumes.

* Enabled Page Numbers in Insight Volumes on iPhone / iTouch.

* Note to iPhone and iPod Touch users - I have had to remove the Bible "full-screen" option due to underlying changes in iOS 6 that made this difficult to implement. Instead there is a new "Options" button above each language to allow access to Copy / Font Size Changes / Hide Language.

Version 1.3.1 (Sep 20, 2012)

* Re-enabled French support!

* Stability improvements for large topics in Insight Volumes like Jehovah and Jesus Christ.

**Reminder**

iOS 6 is not supported yet. It mostly works, but there are some bugs that cause the app to crash or change font sizes. I am working on an update right now that should be out in 10-14 days.

Version 1.3.0 - New Features
=======================

* Insight Volumes in 19 languages, with Pre-cache support for offline use. Swipe to switch between selected languages. History menu on iPad only. Tip: On iPad you can turn on Page Numbers in Admin > Library (slows down initial loading of topic list).

* Support for rendering diacritics added to the English Bible.

* Major rework of the Single Language View on iPad. If you are using the Equipd Bible for just one language you will like these changes! The Action buttons (Copy, Larger, Smaller, Play) are now always visible. The Copy button will only copy the selected verses, instead of the whole chapter - ideal for taking notes. When you select a verse it will now auto-scroll to that verse so that it is visible.

* Tight integration with Watchtower Online Library (requires Internet connection). From Bible can now research a scripture, from ESD open today page with TMS schedule on it or the Watchtower the ESD is from, from Insight Volumes research the current topic. Note: Some of these are iPad only.

* New Websites module allows quick access to WOL and JW.org

Improvements
==============

* The Daily Text module now automatically opens the current days text.

* Changed the Bible rotate to fullscreen option on iPhone. It will no longer auto-rotate which was causing issues - there is now a button to quickly enable the Fullscreen mode.

* Improved rendering of Bible words in Italics - eg "Se´lah".

* Opening the Chapter View will auto-scroll down to the selected verses.

* Improvements for Polish - fixed rendering of verses, and added audio support for Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel.

* Added Russian audio support for Isaiah, Lamentations, Ezekial, Daniel, Hosea, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah.

Attention Chinese Pinyin Users!

Important Note about iOS 6
=======================

If you rely on Equipd please do not upgrade to iOS 6 until official support is added. iOS 6 mostly works, but there are some bugs that cause the app to crash or change font sizes. I am working on an update right now that should be out in 10-14 days.
