To be fair, I did find this above and may add more here but I might find this useful.

Have you found others for basic common non-technical users (imagine sitting in a Bible study with others - holding a windows tablet or an ipad - and your turn to read aloud or answer a question from a sheet in front of you is coming up)?

...um never mind...it is not available for sale individually, right?

That would be very nice to have.

It is the "all or nothing" mentality that makes me very content to not upgrade to L7. I would use a couple things, but nowhere near worth the $200 for a basic upgrade.

So, rather than individually pricing these types of things out, they get nothing from users like me. And, while this means I also get nothing, I'm pretty okay with that.

Thats where i ended up.  I liked the systematic theology tool, but i cant even get it alacarte for $15.

Everett and Aaron...thanks for your replies.  Nice to know I am not alone in my wishing to buy alacarte only the things I can use hopes and dreams....

Blessings,

Joshua

There used to be a time (I think) when you could buy "add-ons" but that was Libronix days only.

Yes, there was. My order history shows some from Libronix. I wish we could still do it that way.

The 'business' reason for that is that bundling is cheaper, as Bob has often explained. But there's a technical reason too. Many of the features rely on various datasets, and as Logos matures, there's better integration between the datasets. Keeping track of all those dependencies is difficult and complex. Knowing that 'everyone has everything' simplifies support and keeps costs down.

Besides that, Libronix was easier to crack. I reported a couple of websites years ago that had the Libronix libraries available for download (obviously illegal). So the way Logos does things now is safer and secure. Nobody can cheat them off their money now and they have better control if who owns what without the extra work individual add-ons give.

You probably know about this already, but for anyone reading this thread who doesn't, there's something of a similar sort that can be purchased a la carte: https://www.logos.com/product/5321/commentary-on-the-new-testament-use-of-the-old-testament
