Gospel Library for BlackBerry 10

Has there been any work for converting Gospel Library for BlackBerry 10?
Or is there an API or anything? I'd be willing to work on one (but I'm NOT doing a church service mission, just offering to volunteer some in my spare time).

Update: I have converted the existing Android applications to run on BlackBerry 10/PlayBook. However, a native version would be preferable.
If no API is available and no one is capable/interested in creating a native BB10 version, at the very least these could be distributed:

Gospel Library: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9610464/BlackB ... 120803.bar
LDS Tools: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9610464/BlackB ... 120918.bar

Thank you, scrid2000 for converting these. I too would prefer a native or official version, but these will do in the meantime. One question, will these work on the current PlaybookOS (2.1.0.1314) or do I need to wait until BBOS 10 is released for the playbook?
Thanks again

They should work on the PlayBook (at least the Gospel Library one should; the LDS Tools one probably won't).
I got it from http://www.ldsmobiletester.com/android/, it appears that it is the latest version.

I just wanted to report that I was able to sideloaded the Gospel Library and LDS Tools onto my Z10. The Gospel Library works fine, so far. LDS Tools, on the other hand, crashed on first use, but that was expected based on others previous comments.
Thanks scrid2000 for making these available. I agree that I would prefer a native version, but this works at least in the meantime.

Hi Scrid2000,

How do you navigate around in the LDS Android apps on BB10? I swipe down from the top, but I get nothing. There is no back arrow. ???
Thanks,

On the Playbook, the back arrow is a gesture in the lower left corner of the screen swiping from bottom to side (Left). When you swipe down from the top, a lower menu bar also should appear with an arrow icon/button in the lower left corner that will also perform the back function.

On the Z10 there is a back button always in this location (part of the menu bar)

Hope this helps.

I figured out what the issue was. For some odd reason I needed to reboot my device. I tried this after noticing that none of my android apps were working. (The apps were claiming that they were not connected to the internet and I could not call up the bottom nav. bar. After rebooting, swiping down from the top revealed the bar at the bottom that has the back arrow and the overflow/top menu button. All the apps seem to be working correctly now.
Thanks for your help!
