A year ago, my family & I moved to Charlotte. The job that took us there was really good for me: I learned a lot, worked with some talented developers, and contributed to some exciting projects.

Needless to say, it was really hard to leave that church family behind.
So as you probably heard, Google has announced that they’ll shut down Google Reader on July 1, 2013.

Reading the Bible on my iPad is my new favorite way to do regular reading and meditation. I look for two things in a Bible app: a clean display of the text (without notes / links / distractions) and the availability of help if I want to read more.

I’ve found some good apps that give the simplicity of focusing my eyes on the text alone, allow quick access to notes and cross-references if I want to study, and help me track my Bible reading progress.

I’ve looked at a few apps that do vocab cards, but none specially set for all NT Greek vocab (yep, it’s not the most common college course).
