Could someone with a kindle paperwhite, new or older, try the experimental browser at app.logos.com? I am interested in using one for reading only and want to know if the device is capable of reading books through the browser. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Zachery, I tried it on a paperwhite, voyager and oasis (3 different variations!). I can easily do the forum, or Logos.com. But I can't get anything to work on the app.logos.com signin page.

I even tried to trick it, signing in first on Logos.com for the cookie.  There's supposed to be a compatibility flag for older browsers but I didn't see it.

In any event, the experimental browser is quite slow. I also don't trust any logons. I rebooted all my pw's (as if that'll do much).

Zachary, my answer is stuck in modulation. Anyway, didn't work.

I can get to that page but it won’t let me sign in.

You can load the web-page, but then you need to sign in and that's where it stops working (maybe because the sign in forum is a pop-up and the experimental browser can't handle pop-ups). 

Anyway, I don't think the experimental browser would make for a very good reading experience. The response time for basic things like scrolling is slow, links (like for a verse pop-up) wouldn't work, and there is no way to adjust font size within the web-page. Theoretically you can do the pinch-to-zoom motion to make the text bigger, but it's very buggy and almost impossible to get right. 

I've always found the feature to be useless on Kindle. Better to use the send-to-kindle feature for web-pages you want to read. That won't solve your problem for reading Logos books.

If nothing else, check to see how much the book costs on Kindle. For instance, this week I bought The Beauty of the Lord on Logos for $15 at 40% off, then noticed the book on Kindle was only $5 so I picked it up there too.

Thanks for your thorough reply. I’m not in the business of paying for books twice so I think I will just skip the kindle idea.
