True or False? You should bring a Bible to a Bible study.



The answer is False. As long as you have Boopsie, you can perform a fast, free Bible search right on your mobile phone.



John Wesley, a college student from Aberdeen, Maryland is a Boopsie user and new Bible study student.



He knew the rules. Anyone that didn't bring their Bible to the young adults' study group was assigned to bring donuts the following week. He remembered this as he entered the room - and realized his Bible was back at home on his nightstand. Thankfully John had a backup plan.



"I told the group that I had my Bible." Wesley recalls. Then I pulled my iPhone out of my pocket. At first they thought I was kidding, but I assured them that with Boopsie's mobile search I could keep up with our discussion on chapter 13 of First Corinthians."



Boopsie provides the fastest, free search available on any mobile device (BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile, Palm, and more). The quick-to-display interface gives users faster results than a more traditional search tool launched from a web browser- all from their mobile phone.



Boopsie's smart prefix search allows users to enter just the first few letters of each word. So instead of entering "For God so loved the world", users just type "go so lov wor" to find John 3:16. Boopsie starts narrowing the results as soon as the first letter is given, so there's no waiting till the Enter key is pressed to get information. That means less work for thumbs, and faster, more useful results.



Wesley did indeed show the Bible study group that his mobile phone Bible could keep up with the discussion. He accessed the New Revised Standard Bible channel through Boopsie then entered "1 cor 13". A split second later he started reciting the chapter to the rest of the group. The traditionalists in the room seemed a little offended at first, but they became more and more intrigued.



"When I got to 'Love is patient, love is kind' in verse four, someone thought they could stump me by asking if I could provide the King James translation," Wesley recalls. "Just a few seconds later after I switched over to the King James channel, I read, 'Love suffers long and is kind.' After that, no one challenged Boopsie as an acceptable Bible alternative, the only Bible search tool needed.

The moral of the story: Simply put, Boopsie offers a free mobile phone Bible download anyone with a pda can use. Now that's using mobile find to enlighten one's life.



"At the next week's Bible study, I noticed several people quietly take out their mobile devices and fire up Boopsie. I turned a room full of skeptics into a room full of Boopsie believers with a free bible for mobile phone users. Now that's faith.



"And I never did have to bring donuts."
