BibleReader for Windows 7

Being quite happy happy with OliveTree's Bible app on my iPhone, I recently downloaded the new BibleReader for Windows 7, available for free download at the Olive Tree Software Website. To access, click here. In the screenshot above (click image to greatly enlarge), you can see displayed the Hebrew text, a sample pop-up analysis of a Hebrew word, and the corresponding Jewish Study Bible notes on the right.

All of the biblical versions and resources that I've purchased for use on the iPhone downloaded easily for use on my laptop. The new program and the all the resources combined appear to take up less than 1 GB on my laptop's flashdrive. Although the software appears perfectly adequate for displaying the resources and the rather amazing hyper-smart Resource Guide appears fully functional, I've noticed a few features that are still works in progress on the PC version. Designating certain Bible versions and resources as "Favorites" does not seem yet to stick from one session to another. Although searches on English-text versions seem to work fine, trying original language searches seems to cause the program to freeze up.

Is there a laptop requirement in order for me to run the biblereader? I have a windows 7 laptop but not sure how many hard drive memory doodads I have.

I think that if you're able to run Windows 7 that BibleReader should work fine. Since it is free, why not give it a try and see if there are any problems?
