Hello Troy,
I just tried downloading and installing that apk, but got only the grey screen.
I've got an Android 2.3 ARMv6 phone with not much RAM and a slow processor,
and could not figure out if I was supposed to install anything beforehand;
the phone in question runs AndBible nicely and BibleTime Mini slowly.

PS: AndBible works well enough for me, if you're not wanting to support
phones quite that old. But if you'd like me to test, I can.
