smile   genbooks / hymns

My wife is an iPod Touch user, and one of her big wishes is for an app that provides hymns. Specifically, she'd like an app that lets her download a database of hymns (even just the words) to be searched and browsed offline.

She found some hymn apps, but they all turned out to be Mormon, or Buddhist, etc. We were really surprised not to find a Christian hymns app. My wife says she would be willing to pay for such an app, but there is apparently none currently.
I checked Android market as well, and similarly came up short.

However, I read that you (Nic) said PocketSword may soon be supporting Genbooks , which would mean we could access the SWORD module for the Open Hymnal.

I didn't see genbook support on the issue tracker for PS, so I wanted to put in my vote for it... yes please! We would surely use it!

Thanks for your ministry.
