Hello, everyone!

We're excited to share that today we launched the biggest update to our reader apps ever. 

Starting today, you can download the redesigned Logos, Verbum, FSB, and Vyrso apps from Google Play and the App Store. 

  • Introducing Tabbed Browsing: You can now open multiple books, tools and documents in tabs and effortlessly navigate between them with a left or right swipe.
  • Introducing Reference Scanner: take a picture of your church bulletin or syllabus and Reference Scanner will read the verse references, allowing you to open them up in your app. 
  • Introducing Bible button: click the bottom center Bible icon to set and quickly jump to your preferred Bible.
  • Simplified reading screen and navigation bar.


The Power of Tabbed Browsing

• Drag and drop tabs to reorder them, or swipe up on a tab to close it. 
• Quickly and easily split your tabs by tapping on the split icon to use two features in the same tab. 
• Link multiple Bible/Commentary tabs so that they scroll in unison.

Updated Logos Pro videos can be found here: https://www.logos.com/training/ios

This is a very welcome change! Thanks so much for adding it... once I got the hang of how it worked I could immediately appreciate the work that went into it :)

Hopefully the next big change is how resources are managed... being able to filter based on whether something is downloaded or by type is long overdue!

Also a small typo there... I think you mean ‘bug’, not ‘big’ :)

Thanks, Joel! I'll pass that along to the team. :)

Sounds good...does it support drag and drop (for copying text between side-by-side apps) on iOS which has been available since iOS 11 was launched?

Excellent work. Glad to see the beta issues cleared up. Thanks for all the hard work. One question though: why does android still not have interliner lines support? iOS has had it for what seems like an age.

Excellent job sirs/madams!  I hope one day that the syncing of resources will apply to series as well as individual resources.  By that I mean, having a multi-volume commentary in a tab and having it follow you through different books.

You mean "linking."

This is very clever. I took a 'scan' of a page of the Westminster confession:

Great update! Took me a few minutes to get the hang of it but once I did I loved the changes. I wish the windows in the multi-tab view were just a little bit larger but that may not be possible with the aspect ratio on smartphone screens.

Great job overall.

Too bad sermons from the sermon editor still don’t have hyperlinked Bible references 🙁

Need Parallel Resources esp. for bibles, lexicons would also be intuitive. Still acclimating to the changes. The concept is right.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Thanks for your hard work! This is an exciting development for the mobile app.  Looking forward to future developments from the team.  Keep it up!

 Is this available for iPads as well?  My mini doesn't show the update is available. (it's running 9.3.5)

It does work on iPads but recently support for devices running versions prior to 10 was dropped as per https://community.logos.com/forums/t/153475.aspx 

I guess this is why you don’t see it

I assume your mini is the "original" mini, right? If not, simply update your iOS to the latest version.

Bummer! Good to know - I must have missed that thread.

Looks like it is. It's an OG iPad Mini... Maybe it's not too late to ask Santa for a new one?

Very nice!  Thanks for the hard work.  Without a doubt the best Bible Study app available.

Perhaps not, but mini's are hard to find in some places. The sweet spot is the regular sized one with 32GB. Currently $279 at best buy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-ipad-latest-model-with-wifi-32gb-space-gray/4907703.p?skuId=4907703

Looks great, seems to work well with my limited testing thus far.  Any ETA on the update rolling out to the Amazon App Store for the Kindle Fire?
