Abstract

The Bible is one of the best-selling books of all time. It is a historical text as well as a religious text, capturing some of the most remarkable stories of mankind and its relationship with God the creator. With the advancement of technology, the distribution and communication of this book has found its place in computers, both fixed and mobile. The problem with most Bible software is that it does not present the scriptures in a format that is easy to read and follow in the mobile context. It offers developers a lasting solution to the conflicts that arise over native and web application development. The main objective of this research is to develop a widget application titled the B3 application, which will increase the accessibility of the Bible and other Bible-related content using a mobile phone. In developing the application, HTML5 and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used to design the structure and layout of the webpages; Javascript serves as a scripting language to perform client-side processing of data; extensible Markup Language acts as the data storage for the Bible combined with Asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX) for data retrieval. These software tools provide readers of the Bible with a mobile bible application with easy accessibility and simplicity for the end users.
