I emphatically agree. The honeymoon period for ipad is over and its not the 'kindle killer' publisher's were anticipating it would be. For me, Kindle has the edge because I can't afford either an ipad or iphone, and even if I did, my biggest complaint against Logos would still be left unresolved. That is, the ability to read books from the Logos library with the comfortability I would otherwise have with paper books. LCD screens do not cut it!

Sean McIntyre:
Online apps can be configured for offline use ala gmail, google docs etc

Yes, through HTML 5. However, this standard is still maturing, support for it is not complete and widespread. I believe I've read that Logos wants to enable offline access through HTML 5 but it will take some time for them to design and implement it.

Yes, but not that far off and it is the future. I wouldn't care to go back to blackberry or windows mobile they are too Old Testament for me now. Ipad and android is interesting but a tablet app should be more like a desktop app than an e-reader. I have the kindle app for e-books and I bought logos for study and sermon prep with the latter being done on the move more often than I would like.

I've tried the iPad, but I'm not very impressed. I rather do my reading in a Nook or a Kindle. I try to only buy "reference" books for my Logos 4 now, since I spend all day working with a computer and do not want to do any reading on a LCD screen. If I could read my Logos books in my Nook, I'd buy many more books to just read and enjoy. I still buy those on paper now (easier on my tired eyes). So my vote is for an app for Nook/Kindle. Thanks for your work!

Nearly everyone I know who doesn't have an iPhone uses a Blackberry device (not counting those of course without smartphones). I would really appreciate an app for Blackberry. However, I am in agreement with what others have said, regardless of the platform chosen, please let us know as soon as possible so that I can make any changes I may need to. My wife would really appreciate that so I stop borrowing her iPhone for extended periods of time to use the Logos app.

If you are in the US then you could use the Kindle browser to go to http://library.logos.com and have access to your books. sadly I am in Kenya and my kindle is unable to browse

I hate Windows 7, but love Droid. Windows mobile platform did not work at all for me. Verizon literally sent me six different phones before I finally had to abandon the platform and go to Droid. Hopefully Windows will work one day, but for me it did not. Droid is amazing because it works. I would use I Phone but I want to stay with Verizon.  Droid does what it says it will do, only downside is that nearly everyone has an I Phone App, but more and more are making it available for Droid. A lot less for Windows.

I am a Windows Mobile user, and would love a Logos app for it.  However, i understand that Logos will not create an app for it at least until after version 7 is released.  What i want is the ability to read my Logos e-books on my device.  Logos created the library.logos.com, but it really does not work well.  You can start reading an e-book, but once the browser is closed, you cannot easily get back to where you were.  Basically, that is all i am after on my mobile device.  I use my desktop to study, and want my mobile to read.  Make the library.logos.com work better at creating bookmarks or remembering where i am and i would be happy.

God bless!

Bob Pritchett:
Please take our updated mobile survey. If you want a dedicated Logos app on the BlackBerry or Android, this is your chance to be counted!

 

Bob, Thank you for asking. I did not take the survey because I am still weighing the benefits of the different devices before I buy one. I am not yet sold on the iPhone (too small), iPad (high cost) or the Blackberry (old technology?.)   But I've seen the Android and I LOVE it.

I want a mobile device primariy to read with. It is a must for it to handle my Logos library. If I did cast a vote, it would be for the Android. For the time being I carry my netbook around with Logos 4 full install / offline.

I have a Droid and a Kindle and would love to be able to read my books without waiting for the pages to reload each time.  I do not read books on my computer, so having an app for the Kindle and Droid would definitely change my buying habits with logos to include more than just commentaries.  Start with the fastest growing mobile platform, make an app for Android!  Or if not, just open it up and let someone else in the open source world do it...  I would really love this if you could do it and would pay for the privilege.

Thank you!

Windows Mobile PLEASE!  We have a large user base and a vibrant platform to develop in.  Win Mobile 7 is around the corner as well and I'm just not interested in Apple or Blackberry for mobile solutions.  I must admit that the new HTC EVO 4G from Sprint will make me at least blink at Android but Droid is too new for me to truly consider over tried and true Windows Mobile.

Please don't forget about us Win Mobile users....

Logos 5, Windows & Android perfect together....

Matthew William Morton:

Lets face it the Droid does...but for logos right now  - it doesn't... and thats just sad.

 

My thoughts exactly! I would love to see Logos for Android. It is the only app that I wish I had that is sadly missing. Please, please develope an Android app.

Thanks,

Dan

I would love to see Logos available for the Palm Pre - Palm OS is a great platform, and as a programmer I can say that it is easier to program for than almost all of the other platforms.

I also would love Logos to produce a Kindle app or at least some way of exporting my books to read on the Kindle... The ability to import/export notes would be a bonus.

Hey Bob,

   I pray all is well with you and family. This is Chaplain George W. Jones, Carswell NAS JRB, Ft. Worth, Texas. I am so thankful that you'll at Logos are looking at other cellular platforms to build Logos on. Mine is the Blackberry 8330. Although it is wonderful having all of the titles that Logos provides on my laptop, it would be even better if I had access on my Blackberry. As a military chaplain, sometimes I am called to do very training in a moments notice. Having the ability to access my Logos on my cell phone will be a blessing because I have access to my titles right there on the cell phone. It this is something that you can do for me and other blackberry users, I would really appreciate you!!!! I already sing your praises to all who ask!!!!!

May God Continue to Richly Bless You,

George W. Jones, Ch, Capt, USAFR

My Samsung Moment is a Droid. Would love to be able to access L4. Sooner rather than later. Took the survey but feel it was not benefical, other than to say I would *** to have some access.

Jacob Hantla:

When you make a decision as to whether or not you'll support other platforms, please let us know as much in advance as possible. Which platform Logos supports will play a huge role in which phone I upgrade to.

I second that! I'm trying to patiently wait because if I could access Logos from an Android phone, I'd actually consider purchasing on of the many that are being introduced over the next two months. 

Blessings,

Christina

Alain Maashe:

My next phone will be the "superphone"  HTC EVO 4G 

It runs Android and coming out this summer. I would love to have a Logos app to take advantage of the big screen (bigger than an iPhone).

 

Hey, that's my phone! I never thought I'd even consider an Android phone, but I want a device that can act as a "hotspot" and this device can do that amazingly well. I've been with T-Mobile for almost 10 years, but I'm actually considering leaving just for this device. Being able to access Logos on it will just be the icing on top of the cake I wish I had right about now!

Blessings,

Christina

I use a Blackberry, but I DON'T want a Logos App for the Blackberry. Please don't waste your time and money. The screen is way too small for reading. I just want to be able to have my entire library on my iPod touch/iPad. NO internet required!

We NEED some kind of portable reader for our Logos based resources. My desktop/laptop is great for study and sermon prep. but NOT for casual reading.

Yes, Kindle has e-ink, but that's truly it. iPad so far is where it is at. Try to run a passage guide on a Nook!

I am holding out to see what Windows Mobile 7 will be like.  Blackberry is not the right device.  I like what I hear about Android. Because everything else I do is practically Windows, I would definitely wait to see what mobile 7 will be like.  If that fails, it will be iPhone or Android (like the shot, Alain!)
