Bible Software

I used to use that. It is a good tool, but years ago it was MS centric. Is it still, or has it become cross platform?
I have it on my android phone and tablet.

My departure from my old windows 7 phone and intro to android brought me to another Bible package.
It's free, has copious resources, also free, and for the past 11 years has been quite easy to get accustomed to.

So while I have the e-sword, I just don't use it much anymore.
 
Haven't seen it mentioned, but I use BibleTime. You can download a lot of bibles in lots of languages, lexicons, other books like the complete collection of the ECFs and greek and hebrew versions of the bible.

It's free, and it works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Yes, that is very good. BibleTime is a swordproject interface application or frontend. I started many years ago with a different swordproject interface called Gnome Sword, now called Xiphos.

Another helpful interface at the link above is Alkitab For Java. It has a useful comparison feature which will identify changes in two different translations or two different versions of the same translation.
 
Don't have any recommendations, but I still have a 2005 desk top with Windows XP that runs. I still have and use the Quick Verse on it. It was actually made for Windows 3.1, and had to mess with it to get it to run (basically just copy the folders and files to the hard drive manually). It is real fast but only has King James and New King James and the cross reference tool Treasury of Scripture Knowledge.

I am using E-sword now, they do have:
The Ultimate Cross-Reference Treasury. But it is $29.99
The Ultimate Cross-Reference Treasury contains more cross references (over 900,000) keyed to more specific words in more verses in the Bible than can be found in any resource, print or digital. This new collection of cross-references enables anyone to study the Bible, and dig as deeply into the Bible as desired. Simply start at any verse, using any Bible translation, to discover what the rest of the Bible has to say about the subjects, topics, concepts, and ideas related to that verse.

Like you said, everything really good is extra.
I use "Blue letter Bible" (blueletterbible.com) which is free, and has many different translations, and commentaries.
