PalmBible+ Reader for PalmOS
PalmBible+ is a free (GPL-licensed) Bible reader for Palm OS now maintained by Yih-Chun Hu, but originally derived from BibleReader by Poetry Poon. BibleReader was previously hosted at SourceForge, and was open-source under the GPL. Since then, Mr. Poon has taken his project commercial, allowing him to sell copyrighted versions (such as the NIV), but also preventing others from fixing or adding features to his latest project. PalmBible+ can be found here and a nice starter pack has been collected and posted by Tyndale House here.
