CrossConnect has just made a major release but only for Windows 8/8.1/RT. The Windows phone programs will come soon in a few weeks.
The great new features are the following:
- Highlight any verse in 6 different colors.
- Versification: This means that bibles with apocrypha or other books or chapter/verse order can be read properly. Before only bibles following the KingJamesVersion system of books/chapters/verses could be read.
- Text to speech reading of the bibles. Also called Speech Synthesis. Now any bible can be read out loud by the computer. During the reading, the currently read verse is highlighted. This is only available in windows 8.1. Since windows 8.1 is free for those with windows 8, GET IT NOW…
- It is now possible to Export and Import Personal Notes, Bookmarks, and Highlighting. This is so you can share your settings between different computers and eventually to your telephone.
- Remote storage of all settings. Remote storage means that automatically all settings can/will be shared between computers which you have logged in on with the same authentication profile. Remote storage is very unpredictable so this type of sharing between computers is not especially helpful when you want settings immediately to be moved between computers. Therefore if you want immediate sharing it is better with the new Export/Import system.
