    *** edit after last update *** This app is awesome after the last update! I can’t think of anything I would change in terms of the app functionality. Parallel reading makes it easy to switch between resources with the swipe of my finger. I can link resources so I only need one bookmark for my Greek and Hebrew reading respectively ( I keep an English translation in parallel for reference). These 2 pieces of functionality really bring this app to life for me. The mapping between Hebrew words in bus and the gloss is still very shotty , and I don’t have this problem on pc, so it would be nice if they could fix that. Otherwise it’s about as perfect as I could reasonably expect it to be. This isn’t an actual problem, but I would personally prefer if the add favorite button was more quickly and easily accessible. *** end edit *** I like the app. I use it for PC and for IPAD. The IPAD app needs to be better thought out. User's should not have to make 3 clicks to do a quick look up on a word. That should either be done by holding finger on the word (like the mouse hover in the computer app), or we should be able to simple click on a word and get basic info on it. THere should be a similar function for looking up words in the dictionaries. As of now, there doesn't appear to be a way to pick a list of dictionaries for looking up words in specific languages. If I click on a word, or if I select "search" for a word, it should pull up all my dictionaries for the language I'm working with, or at least I should be able to set those up ahead of time. The support for languages other than greek and hebrew seems to be limited. Many Syriac words and UnPointed Aramaic words are inproperly indexed. There are also a lot of Hebrew compound words that don't provide the correct lemma. This should be fixed as soon as possible. I really appreciate both the pc app, and the ipad app. They are tools that I use for my time with Our Lord Each Morning. My learning of hebrew, greek, syriac, aramaic, and latin have been helped tremendously by the Original Languages pack. I do wish that the original languages pack did include some resources for learning Ugaritic, Akkadian, Latin, and Syriac (at least a syriac old testament with dictionary). I also wish more extra biblical resources had been included in the original languages. Why do I have josephus in english but not in greek? I had to purchase the apostolic fathers in greek separately. I don't think this makes sense for a package called "original languages" pack. the customer service is wonderful. People are always prompt and friendly. The sales guys aren't too pushy, but they make your options clear. I like everybody that I've worked with personally.
  • Greek helps

    The Greek helps are much lacking. There is not much different between this app and many other Bible reading app.
  • Used to love it...

    This used to be a powerful tool for Bible study and even note taking during sermons. Unfortunately the new tabbed version, while easy for new users, stripped out all of the shortcuts that made it useful for power users. Everything now takes much longer and is distracting to others if used in a church service because you find yourself constantly changing between tabs. The swipe up on a verse shortcut is a killer to lose as it rally slows you down. Wish I could go back to the old version or get some shortcuts added back. Some examples: When in read mode you can no longer quickly get to the study tools for a verse. I used to swipe up on a verse and get a menu to directly access these tools. Now I need to select them from the top or bottom menu which takes you to a new screen but only for the top verse on the page, not the verse you want. You then have to browse to the verse you want and its not on the same screen as the verse so you can’t see them together. This is way slower, more painful and less useful. When I select change resource it only lets me select items from the library. However in the tabbed screen when adding a pane you can selected between the library, tools and documents. So I have to go to the tabs, close what’s in the right pane, select what I want and then go back. Super slow. When I select my reading plan it puts the reading plan in the right pane. There is no way to change this to my notes or a commentary without going to tabs, closing the reading plan and then browsing to what I want. Super slow. The back button used to just take me back. In the tabs there is no way to have two difference passages open that both keep their commentary in sync with the passage. The commentary on both will be linked to the first passage or not at all. So what’s the point of having multiple tabs then? Overall it seems all the shortcuts are gone. You can access everything with lots of steps and lots of swapping between screens.
  • Tabs are nice, but hangs/quits

    I like the feature of having tabs to switch between. I also like being able to split the screed in each tab. However, notes still need a lot of work. Anytime I add a note that I have created on one of the tabs the app completely hangs and quits. Once it gets in this state the only way to recover is to completely uninstall logos and reinstall it.

    It is a powerful Bible study tool right in you hand. I am amazed at the level of research I can do when Bible questions come up at unexpected moments and I'm nowhere near my library.
  • Awesome

    This has more than I could ever get around to. Always have a library with me
  • Great cross references

    By General563
    The text is interspersed with cross references to other scriptures and translation footnotes that you can easily pop up, but then return to the original text. If you really want to follow a cross reference, you can easily bring up the verse(s) in context for further study.
  • Request for change

    By HouBman
    I am enjoying the new design. I’ve used the feature to show my favorite bible. It is nice not to have to look for the Bible but that I just have to click the button. I like being able to keep as many books / resources open as I want. My request for change: can you add a way to “lock” the resource into full screen mode? I want to keep the menus off the screen while I scroll up or down. Right now the menus show up and cover the viewing area. When I am reading in low light mode, I’m distracted by the sudden change of color on the screen when the menus appear. Could the menus also change color to match the low light color scheme? For example, I’ll be reading in while in bed. My background will be dark and when I accidentally bump my screen down or scroll a bit toward earlier in the book, the stark contrast of the white menu on the black reading background causes me to glance away from the text I’m reading. I’ve been trying to get used to it for three weeks and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to adjust to this. I’ve been able to adjust to the other changes and I’m enjoying it. But after three weeks of trying out the app, I decided to request the change. Thanks for listening.
