Here are some key features of "iBible":
Quick jump to Bible verses
History keeps track of where you're reading
Bookmarks let you remember important passages
Strong's Lexicon support lets you see what Bible words' original definitions are
Powerful search lets you look for words or phrases in as much -- or as little -- of the Bible as you want

Limitations:

What's New:
Preferences apply changes to open windows. Previously, windows would need to be closed for preferences changes to be applied.
Hot-swapping of Bible versions. Previously, if a user with multiple versions of the Bible changed default versions in the Preferences dialog, restarting iBible was necessary. Now the new version loads while the program is running.
VASTLY improved loading speed. iBible formerly took about 15 seconds to load on my PowerBook 1GHz G4. It now takes about one second.
Search result count now displayed. Formerly iBible would display how many times a specified search string was found in the Bible. Subsequent versions deleted that feature for various reasons. 2.6 brings it back.
Respecting the Dock. iBible is a Carbon application, which made it difficult to respect the dock location, thus windows would sometimes be behind the dock. 2.6 respects the dock.
Added a version-checking system so users can see if they have the latest version of iBible, and prompts them to upgrade if a newer version is available online.
FINALLY squashed a bug where opening new display windows would cause the second window to appear EXACTLY over the top of the first one. This was a heinous error to track down!
Version pulldown menu in Preferences pane would not reflect the currently selected version. Fixed.
Icon issues in various dialog boxes were fixed.
About box now renders correctly.
