Pocket Vedabase includes the full text of all these books:Bhagavad-gītā As It Is / Śrīmad Bhāgavatam / Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta / Teachings of Lord Caitanya / Nectar of Devotion / Nectar of Instruction / Teachings of Lord Kapila / Teachings of Queen…..
What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed a few bugs including one which made some pages appear blank.
Added some paragraphs which were missing from the Nectar of Devotion and other places.
Added some more options to control how long the toolbar stays on screen (very useful when reciting verses) and to enable white-on-black reading mode.
Some other minor user interface tweaks.
Rated 3/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
Great Application but no improvements

I am very happy to have so many of the essential Vedic books available in a great reading format on my iPhone. Some of the features that I like is that there is no need for a screen lock because it is portrait only, meaning that one can read while in bed and not worry about the screen shifting. I also like that it has all the diacritics that are not there in the Kindle and other readers. The search is thorough and works well.
Some items need improvement.
All the features of original site are not available. For example, one cannot read just the chapter's verses without purport in one page, one can only read the verses one at a time. On the chapter dail, it should not say just 1,2,3, but also All verses. That should be a very easy fix.
I would like to also see the ability to go to the next page simply by swiping like other reading apps rather that having to hit the tab. Also other reading apps like the Kindle app have different reading setting such as black background, white font, which is nice to read at night.
also the Nectar of Devotion book is missing several paragraphs that are also missing in the original sourse site. People at dancing Ganesh should work with the webmaster of Vedabase.net to help get those missing parts fixed. To see an example of this see chap 2.
Overall I think that Pocket Vedabase is well worth its expensive price. (sales however may produce better profit at a lower price) So many great books and the best translations of Gita other Sanskrit texts. Thank you
UPDATE: very pleased to see all chapter problems fixed for the book Nectar of Devotion
Even more pleased with the NIGHT FONT very very useful to read at night without having to disturb others by keeping the lights on.
I am hoping they will make exportable bookmarks (possibly with correct link), similar to Notes, which would make Pocket Vedabase a great study tool.
I also heard that the index pages and all chapter verses will most likely in the next update
Review update. 2/24/2011. Company has not replied to any email. Nor have they updated basic features requested.
At your fingertips

Bhagavad Gita at your fingertips- amazing but true
After Bhaktivedanta Vedabase, this is the the next level to look to
where we can use existing technology for Krishna consiousness.
I like the bookmarks, Have already got 33 so far!
If you love sravanam, Kirtanam and smaranam, then get this
Well worth the price!

I had misgivings before purchasing this, mainly because of the price.
But this app is well worth it. I like the navigation features, and I love the "search" feature.
