I don't like the new UI, feels cheap.

I want to go back to the way it was, how can I do that?

Uninstall eight and down load seven. You may have to ask logos to block your account from receiving 8 until you are ready for it, otherwise it will simply update

Am close to asking the same question Tito

Actually like the UI just feel like I'm testing a Beta and don't have the time to be a Beta tester.

There is a 30-day money back guarantee. Just give Faithlife a call and they should be able to sort you out. 

On the other hand, you could give it time and see if it grows on you!

The UI is not THAT much different than L7. I don't really understand your point. Do you not also like the new tools that come with L8?

I would be interested in knowing what specific issues, concerns, or dislikes you have about the UI.

I would like to know this too. Sometimes it just takes a bit of time to adapt to the changes.

I'm not sold on the UI either but I'm trying to give it a chance, looks too much like the web app which I've never been a fan of. I know they said it's customizable so I'm going to poke around with it.

I would like to advise against going back because the new UI unifies the online and desktop experience. We are used to a desktop experience that was specifically designed for desktops. It would not work well online. A little pain now will pay off in the future as our devices get more and more integrated. You should have heard me yell a few days ago when I had to connect my Kindle and iPhone to get my new SmartPlug to work with Echo -- but integration is the direction of the future.

Hmmm ... on previous versions, they said updated meant updated (absent some registry surgery). But maybe L8 is a web app in sheeps clothing, and no problem.

Yeah... I'm not too fond of the new layout, either, most especially the home page. It's one reason I don't use the online version for anything other than a quick lookup.

I loved the old home page format, and found it somewhat addictive. It looked informative (even if it was trying to sell product).

The new one is just looks like ads, ads, ads. It also seems that we also had a lot more control over what content showed up on the old home page. Now you can turn off your own cards, but you have to suffer through whatever else Faithlife wants to throw at you, with no (apparent) way to turn it off or tone it down.

I dislike it so much that I've resorted to turning off the home screen as my default startup page, and just set it to blank screen instead (Tools->Program Settings->At Startup Open to->Blank layout).

It'll probably save me a lot of money over the long run!

I think you are remembering the instances in which there had been a major change in the resources that made them incompatible backwards.

Yep. But FL is going to do more work on the Home Page, so I'd expect more options in the future. (I prefer the L7 layout, too.)

Look - you all aren't Verbum users who (a) had lectionary lose necessary functionality (b) had saints lose necessary functionally plus being built in a way that doesn't work with the resource it was built for (c) caught the fact the either Daily Devotional isn't working right or they incorrectly assigned type in the library ..... and that's just in the Dashboard ...

That's true, I prefer version 7 that looks pro, L8 is weakness.

I have to agree L8 home page is awful. Never liked the web app and now the desktop homepage looks awful too, it no longer looks like  professional bible study software package but instead one for children. Added to the fact it’s incompete and we are being told we have to wait for a future update before we can remove all the marketing fluff from it, it does not give a good first chance impression of the software.

Honestly, if that is what you are judging all of L8 on I think you have severely missed the point. It's going to be fixed. It isn't fixed today. No sense going on and on about it, just move on.

I remember when everyone hated the new iOS design back in 2012-13ish. It looked so different (aka, cheap, cartoon-y, etc) compared to what we were used to for 4-5 years. The new L8 design reminded me of that

Logos/Verbum 8.1 will have an improved homepage, which I'm looking forward to.
