UPDATE (July 29, 2010): Gospel Library app (beta) now available for Blackberry!
Finally, there is a decent option for getting the scriptures on your Blackberry. The church has made available its gospel library app for Blackberry devices. It is far simpler to install than the options below. It will also sync your notes and highlights with the online scriptures in the future. Get the download link and more information at the Gospel Library Application page.
The instructions below are still valid, but we think the Gospel Library App is the way to go.
This is the best option we have found for LDS Scriptures on the BlackBerry. It is not even close to the iPhone or iPod Touch options, but it is something. So here’s how to get the LDS scriptures and other LDS gospel library content for your Blackberry using the free MobiPocket reader BlackBerry application.
First install the free MobiPocket reader on your BlackBerry by browsing to m.mobipocket.com on your BlackBerry internet browser.
Next you have the option to buy LDS content or download the LDS scriptures and other content for free:
- Buy: Run MobiPocket on your BlackBerry and use the eBookstore store to buy and download the LDS scriptures and other LDS library content. Several options are available. Search for “LDS.” Or check out LDS Book Club (MobiPocket Bookstore).
- Free: Download the free LDS scriptures to your PC from ldspocket.com/freeebook/LDSScriptBB.zip. Unzip the file and copy the LDS Scriptures.prc file to the eBooks folder on your BlackBerry memory card. (See more details here on the process. Just don’t use the free scriptures file he provides. It doesn’t have the footnotes and the navigation is awful.)
