This is a new release of Cross-Connect with Bible study plans showing the bible in chronological order.

For WP7 and WP8 there is also added the possibility to have the title of each window on it’s own line.  This was added as a request from users who didn’t like that the title text is almost never readable because the buttons hide it.

CrossConnect has had an older version as open-source but now all versions of CrossConnect are open source. You can get the code at http://code.google.com/p/cross-connect/

There is a goldmine of code here in cross-connect.

  1. A “Full Text Indexer” FTI that works in the extremely restrictive Windows phone and windows metro environments.
  2. Various hard to find functionality like color pickers, date pickers, etc.
  3. The only C# sword (crosswire.org) file readers.

Added “not” functionality to the “fast search”

In all releases of Cross-Connect I have added the “not” functionality to the fast searching. Now if you put “-” in front of a search word, you will find all verses that don’t have that word.

Example search 1:
+mary +joseph
Will get all verses containing either mary or joseph. It will return far over the maximum limit of 200.

Example search 2:
mary joseph
Will get all verses containing both mary and joseph. It will return about 7 verses.

Example search 3:
mary -joseph
Will get all verses containing mary that also don’t contain joseph. It will return about 39 verses.

Example search 4:
mary
Will get all verses containing mary. It will return about 46 verses which makes sense. It is the sum of the number of verses found in examples 2 and 3.

Example search 5:
m?r?
Find all verses containing words that are 4 letters long and start with “m” and the third letter is “r”. This will find “mary” and “more” and “mire” and “mark”

Example search 6:
mar*
Find all words of any length that start with “mar”. This will find “mary” as well as “married” .

Example search 7:
mar* -jos*
Find all verses containing words of any length that start with “mar” yet in the same verse you can’t have a word starting with “jos”.

New direct menu’s to “Search” and “Select bible book”

Due to popular request the menu’s in WP7, WP8 and Windows 8 and RT have been reorganized so that the most important and often used items are more easy to reach.  Now “Search” and “Select bible book” have their own icon directly on the App-Bar.

Due to a generous donation from Louis we have been able to add “Fast Searching” and “Crosswire general books” to all versions of Cross Connect(WP7, WP8, RT, Windows 8). These 2 items were the last things missing to make Cross Connect contain everything you could hope for in a Bible App.

Crosswire has over 50 General Books in several languages and new books are added regularly. All of these are available to you for free. More importantly are the 150 bibles in over 50 languages

The “fast searching” means you get instant results for any search of a word or group of words in a bible or book.screenshot_02132013_223838

Finally the WP7 version is once again available for downloading. You can see and download it by clicking here

This may cause some confusion for WP8 users because now WP8 users will see 2 CrossConnects in the marketplace. WP8 users can use either one however one works better. You know if you are using the correct one if when you press on a verse, the verse remains highlighted. That is the only difference.

Finally microsoft put Cross-connect for WP8 on the marketplace. You can see and download it by clicking here

Unfortuneately I am still struggeling to get Cross connect WP7 back on the marketplace. A week ago I got a version out but it didn’t work at all! I was of course forced to remove it. Now the version I know works is still going through the microsoft submission process. Hopefully in one more week it will be out.

Due to Micorsoft’s reorganization of thier Windows Phone 7 (WP7) App distribution system, Cross-connect stopped being available in the “Marketplace”. Now I have finally figured out the new system and re-submitted Cross-connect to the Marketplace. It will come in about a week.

But that is only the beginning. I have submitted a release for Windows Phone 8 (WP8) as well!!! There is nothing new in the windows 8 version. Most will find it exactly like the WP7 version although there are some technical differences. Again it will be available in about a week.

Lastly and most importantly, I have completely rewritten Cross-connect to work on Windows 8 also called “Metro” or “Windows Store App”. It is a beautiful program and has improved dramatically on the user interface but users will still recognize it as being the same Cross-connect with all the same features. Since windows 8 is for full size screens there is a lot more space for the user interface making it a lot funner to work with. Again it will be available in about a week but only if you have windows 8 installed in your pc or tablet.
