The Emmanual app is by far the best I've used compared to any Bible app on any platform. Very efficient.

What hooked him was having e-Mmanual, Presenters Edge (with notes, cue cards and timer), and PP all running and just swiping between apps as he needed them. And we are doing the PP wirelessly. We have a wireless projector set up with a miniHDMI connector on the PB connected with a wirelesss dongle. Works great.
Also what works well is using a sketch app, allowing us to us the PB as a white board, drawing or writing on loaded docs or photos and showing it through Slide Show. We use this at work to draw on loaded schematics.There are trolls in BlackBerry clothing among us. Report and never reply to obvious troll posts, they will die without responses from you.

BTW, made note of tablet use in our church today. I would estimate about 25% were using a tablet of one brand or another. Galaxy Tabs, Xooms (10 & 7 "), Ipads and PBs. 3 other PBs not counting ours.There are trolls in BlackBerry clothing among us.

i use emmanuel dual versions ESV and NIV at the same time. The 5 tabs help as my pastor flips back on forth so instead of keeping a finger on X page I can just use a different tab. How convenient. =)

I am a Catholic priest, and my 32gb PB won't be used in the liturgy per se, but I will be using it for teaching, as well as presentations in meetings.
In addition, my side-loaded Remote Desktop Enterprise (Android app) allows me to access our parish database out of the office as long as there's wifi available. Our parish has 7800 families, and keeping up with sick lists especially, as well as communication with the families, is always a challenge. The PB will help me keep those details up to date and serve the folks better.
Finally, there is also an app for the breviary (the Liturgy of the Hours, psalms and readings that all priests pray five times daily) that I side loaded which allows me to pray without carrying the book around.
As a tool, the PB will help in prayer, praise, and service. That's a good thing. Happy New Year!

Still have to to use paper notes, though, when I go into the local juvenile detention center each week. No technology allowed! Too much distraction for the kids.
For those of you who use the PB to teach/preach, how do you find the 7 inch screen to be? I've got a pastor friend in Minnesota who uses the iPad, and he likes the 10 inch screen better due to his aging eyes. That's one thing I've been wondering about, if I want to go with a 7in PB or a 10in Android tablet.
BTW, this is a really awesome thread! A breath of fresh air as of late!

This is the thread of the day, first of the new year! Five stars, vote it up people! Can I get an AAA-MEN, bruthas and sistas? Be healed and use your Playbook!
I love these discussions, and we're also learning a lot about our fellow CBers.
Rotowrench - awesome contribution to the thread! We will definitely explore the wifi options. A shopping list of the parts as a followup would be outstanding. I already checked out the e-Mmanuel app. The Presenter's Edge app I am looking into. Now we just need the shopping list for hware!

I use a tablet in Sunday School as my bible, but for some reason I feel a little creepy using it in church.
Perhaps because I know that I will have to choose to overcome temptation... can I resist glancing at weather underground during verse five of a slow hymn??? Better to have the tablet closed for me!

I have moved to the Playbook for ministry teaching to have all the verses I want to deal with in a single Word document and easy to access. No turning pages or going through paper.

Great thread! I preached from my PB for the first time this am! I was surprised at how comfortable an experience it was. Scrolling will take getting used to and I need to adjust backlight settings.
Told my parish afterwards and they thought it was pretty cool! I'm an Anglican priest in Ontario, Canada.

lol. started off the new year going to my mom's church. Used my PB as my bible. Funny i get on CB to see this post. Love my custom Bible my mom gave me but the PB was so much faster lol.
And with my brand new leather BB PB case lol looked like a bible.
My BF kept trying to see if he could pull up the verse faster then me.
