Hi Jeff,

I am still planning to develop that interlinear functionality that I 
wrote about in February, I have not started yet ... but will soon.

The interlinear visualization used by BibleHub is actually nice! I could 
imagine to do something similar in Ezra Bible App.

I am currently not targeting mobile use with Ezra, but certainly tablets 
(Windows and Android) and the user interface is also touch-based. In the 
future we may see an iPad version as well.

You already find a strongs dictionary functionality in Ezra, similar to 
what other frontends are doing, with the typical mouse-over strongs-word 
/ dictionary update. But that only works on the desktop due to the 
mouseover limitation.

Focussing more on being touch-friendly is one of my goals for new 
functionality in Ezra. In fact, for me personally my Android tablet has 
become the primary device for this software ... at least for casual study.

I'd also be curious to see screenshots of your work!

I'll be keeping you posted whenever I have something ready to try. I am 
personally not a Greek/Hebrew expert, but nevertheless I enjoy some 
tool-based original language study. I'd be happy about getting feedback 
from users like you in the future!
