Hi Faithful,

I'm using the Android tablet to study the resources I owned of Logos.

My Bible app version is 5.14.5

1. How can I change the display fonts for the resources in Bible app?

2. I want to move Bible app storage location to SD card, but the Bible app doesn't enable it.

    Is it possible to enable this?

   

   

like WordPress app for example, it enables this function:

   

   

   

   

   

But the Bible app still missing this important function (。•́︿•̀。)

If you have Android 6 or newer, you can enable adoptable storage to move all app data to SD.

Hi Jan,

It's good of you to offer possible solutions but (as you know) Faithlife doesn't support rooted devices. If everything works for Davy Wang after following your suggestions, that's great!  However, if problems occur on his rooted device, Faithlife can't offer him any support (although you might be able to).

Adoptable storage doesn't require root. Big Smile

Hi Jan,

True, but adoptable storage might not work on all Android devices and for those it does work on, you are leaving out the important fact that the SD Card can't be removed without possibly trashing Faithlife customer data. Not all of our customers are technical wizards with Android devices.

What you are suggesting is an invitation for customers to possibly lose data. We've already previously talked about the limitations of the standard SD Card filesystem so I'm not quite sure why you are pushing this idea. In any case, Faithlife doesn't support it.

As always, if you are willing to support those customers that follow your advice we welcome it.! ;)

Hi Davy,

Resource display font changes are not supported in the mobile apps.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for your reply.

I don't want to root my device, I just want logos mobile app (Android) allows users legally store the resources which they spent a lot of money.

If I download all the resources I have, then the internal storage space will be fully occupied, and cause my device running problems due to I want to download all my legal resources.

Only say "not support", really not good. Everyone can easily say like this.

I'm pretty sure not only me encounter this problem, a lot of users who spent a lot but meet the same headache.

I saw there's a user voice page (something like that), we can vote.

So long, but no any positive progress output.

Davy.

The mobile apps (iOS/Android) are considered supplementary ones to the desktop version (Mac/Windows). The mobile apps are meant for many things to be run "in the cloud." Downloading all of your resources isn't recommended unless you have a small library.
