I just got a new e-ink device called a Mobiscribe. It's primarily a note taking device which it handles with aplomb. However you can side load Android apps so I tried the old version of Logos available from the Wiki. It won't run properly. Keeps saying my password is bad. So I tried the webapp, which is why I'm writing this. It won't load. I get the the top toolbar but when I click to enable compatibility mode under my picture of my face it's not there. The menu has no compatibility mode. Any idea why?

In case you're curious. You can learn more about the device here:

I won't be surprised if it won't load there at all. Mobile app is less universal than one would think. Mobile app developers often need to test their apps on multiple platforms and check that it works on all of them and ship it. By multiple, some only test against Chrome. For the best ones, they test against Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, that's it. And even so, they often only tests against desktop version of these browsers, i.e. not iOS Safari or Android Chrome, etc.

Simply put, apps as complicated as Logos Web is pushing what HTML+CSS+JS can offer as an GUI application. The limiting factor is often from Javascript, where mobile support might be not as good as the desktop counterparts.

May be you could give the Android app one more try? You could try to change your password to simpler one and try logging in again. In the past I've experienced some non-uniform behavior given same account but login on different platforms. I used very complicated passwords, and sometimes it is interesting to see while e.g. the web login accept 256 characters long passwords, a mobile version could accept only 32 characters long. Or web accept some special characters while mobile can't. Vice versa.

Does the browser have an option to request the desktop version of the web page?

Will it make a difference? I just tried accessing on iOS and I don’t need to request the desktop version and it runs fine.
