Is it posible for the powers that be at Logos to post a list of books that are available for the iPhone/iPad as they become available?

I would like that.

And please make it the titles more descriptive than

1.  John

2. John

It would be nice if there would be a searchable page similar to the prepub page where titles could be sorted by various criteria including "last added"

Hi,

No need for Logos to create something special.  You can find that information using Google.  Here is a list of all this titles now available on the Logos Bible Software for iPhone and iPad http://bit.ly/ciZgsL

My Books in Logos & FREE Training

That is fine, but not what I am seeking. I want to know what has been added recently, some kind of notification as titles are added. A "What's New" list.

I totally disagree,

The name of the game is user-friendliness. the deal is for Logos to do the most amount of  work and for the user to do the least amount of work when it comes to maximizing the usefulness of resources or features. ironically, this is why the iPhone/Ipad platform is so successful.

iPhone integration is touted as a key feature of Logos 4, Logos should make sure that the identification, selection and download of resources is as user friendly as the platform on which the app runs.

It would be a good ideal to make the iPhone/Ipad library manageable from the desktop installation with a way to search for books that are available for the iPhone and assign selected books or the whole library for download when the app synchronizes with the server (other apps do it, Logos can do it too).

I do not enjoy having to scroll through my Ipod Touch library to find out which books might have been added since the last time I checked. I also do not enjoy having to re-download my selections every time the app is upgraded.

These are things that distinguish a great app from a just okay one and I believe Logos strives for excellence. This is especially important since many will buy a Iphone or am Ipad primarely to use the Logos app.

That is precisely why I bought my iPad. At least that is why I told my wife I needed it.

It is possible to see all the book available on your phone by using your browser and going to Library.logos.com and going to the library link. It isn't exactly what you are wanting and the fact that you have to click load more books over and over doesn't make it ideal but you can get the whole list.

I think it might be nice if they just added a news feed to the front page of all the books added in the last Month, week, whatever. It can be continual because they keep adding book to logos so once they get through all the older books they can just add the new books. However, there would have to have some script that continually updates it because it would need to be up to date constantly.

You can get the whole list at once by using this link:

That's great.  I show as having 380 resources.  So if I check tomorrow and it shows 381, at least I will know that I have received a new one.

That is at least better than not having a clue, just what has changed.
