I highlight a LOT, and the mobile versions of Logos don't work for me--they can't handle the Notes file sizes that I have. The highlighting just doesn't load right and isn't reliable. I know you wanted a cheap solution, but an MS Surface Pro 4 (m3) or MS Surface Book would run the full Logos experience with no compromises. I suggest the m3 only because it doesn't have a fan, and therefore will run quiet during a service--like you are used to with your iPad. It will just take a while on initial index.

I highlight quite a bit too, but thankfully don't suffer from "large note syndrome." That is certainly something to consider. If a user doesn't suffer from that problem, the mobile app is superior (imo) for reading & highlighting. 

I think we have talked about this before, but are your note documents thematic? Pallete based? Resource specific?

It's too bad that Faithlife hasn't made the full PC version of Logos suitable for the tablet environment. Having the full PC version on a small Windows tablet is not ideal, but highlighting with a stylus is still better than on the iOS or Android mobile apps. I do agree with Alabama24 that reading is better on the mobile apps.

I use Lenovo Yoga 2 10" tablet with Windows 10, SSD 32 GB and 128 GB SD card.

It works flawlessly with all the applications including the MS Office 2016. The only problem is the size of the SSD disk, mainly for Logos. It is not produced with the 64 GB or 128 GB disk and that is a problem. I installed Logos on C drive and use junction function to put Data folder on the SD drive. Also I have to put OneDrive on the virtual disk created on SD card.

Eventually I think am going to replace this tablet with (hopefully) Surface Pro 4 with at least 256 GB to be able to have Logos on the main disk.

Not to cause troubles... but my iPad 3rd gen is working pretty nice I was wondering if you ever considered a fresh install to possible deal with something that might be causing sluggishness.

You might see if there is an actual Microsoft store within a reasonable distance from you. General retailers are too often Windows houses of horror, unfortunately.

Does anyone know if the m3 processor surface pro 4 would be meaty enough to run logos 6 happily?

I'm looking at Surface Pros myself.

Thanks

That is handy info - are you running the latest ios? I'm tempted to do a reinstall.

sorry, don't know anything about Windows devices. Either create a new thread or do a google search of the forums using site:community.logos.com

Alabama: Many of my highlights were done before the new "by-resource" convention, which I have now started using (vs "by palette).  I wish that Logos made a tool where I could migrate my old palette highlights out into Resource or Theme Notes files.  With rare exception, I haven't created themed Highlights files...although doing so would make it possible to share them via Faithlife.  While I love highlighting, my use of this feature has become an impediment to using Logos--at all on mobile devices and for quick reference on PCs (it takes a minute or two for my highlights to "snap in"), which can be quite a delay when you are needing to zip around fast.

I second that motion. I have tons of highlights I made when I had no highlighting strategy and now wish they could be easily moved into various new documents easily and in bulk. Sure wish Logos would reinvent notes and highlighting. This is a very, very weak area for such wonderful software.

Hello

Happy HOLYdays.

I continue to use my "hot-brick", The Original Surface Pro, with a small noisy desk fan blowing on it all the time, and wish I could get a smaller, less heavy, not overly expensive replacement.  I use an Android Tablet (Galaxy S and not the inferior lower resolution S2 either!) for reading but miss the full better functionality Windows 10 provides.

What a shame the Surface Pro options (I have a huge library folks) are not lower priced and available for all.  I do not think anything less than an I5 would work for a Windows machine but I keep getting intrigued by the Dell Venue 8 pro. (64 GB version) notes I keep reading for a scaled down Windows only mobile approach - but it seems labor intensive to get it right - and I like automatically indexing that doesn't take hours or days too.

Guess I am stuck with my Surface Pro.  I cannot afford to upgrade and I will not switch to IOS (the dreaded Apple) at any price.

Blessings one and all....and happy LOGOS-ing.

Joshua in RI

Hi, Josh.

I continue to use and "love" my Venue 8 pro. So much so that when I ran across a spectacular deal on a Venue 11 pro, I added it to the stable as well. It has a 128GB drive, 4GB ram, and a scaled down i5 processor. While it may be slightly faster, I still  find myself preferring the 8 pro for small groups.

If the larger footprint is something you can live with, They are reasonably priced.

If you're used to Apple's touch screens, you'll be forever frustrated with any other touch/jab/punch screen tech!

And if one is accustomed to a full desktop experience on a tablet, No rotten apple will ever do ! Wink
