Is there a way to filter the library to show only downloaded resources, like you can do in the Kindle app?

I was on an airplane the other day wanting to look up some general information about the book of Colossians and wondered whether I had any already downloaded books on my device that might give an overview of the book. You can see at a glance which books are downloaded and which aren't, by the colored in "i" circle, but when you have thousands of books in your library, paging down through all of them to find ones you have access to at 30,000 feet is time consuming.

If you type local: in the library command box it should show all of the resources on your device. To search specifically for Colossians just type 

local:colossians

Or simply switch your phone to airplane mode, and cloud resources will be hidden by default.

(It would be much more interesting to have an option to show non downloaded resources.)

The mobile app really needs some type of library filter option / faceted browsing or similar!

Oh, thanks! I thought I was in airplane mode when I was trying to figure this out, but apparently not! (Sorry, United, I wasn't trying to buck the rules.)

We are planning enhanced Library filtering, including Faceted filtering, and one of the facets would be Downloaded.
