And that Android thing? If you want to find on
http://www.crosswire.org/sword/software/index.jsp about smartphone
front-ends, good luck! Try Google, it works way better.

Also, my current pet-peeve with most free software announcements. See 
this one:

How can reader of the News page found what exactly BPBible is about? 
Would putting it like "BPBible, sword front-end for <foo> containing 
<some awesomeness>" be so horribly difficult for the announcement author?

Actually, when going to http://bpbible.com/, I learn that BPBible is 
"Flexible Bible Study". Awesome! I have still no clue what the software 
is about.

Does it run on Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, my Linux box? Browsing a bit 
on the site, it looks like a front-end for Windows (where of course 
ignorance of the rest of the universe is assumed ;)), but who will even 
go to that website?
