Do I understand the faq correctly that the intention is to bring as much functionality as possible from the desktop app to the web app? I hadn't tried the web app in a long time but it seems like it's coming along. There are a few features that would really help my mobile work flow:

Full search ability--seems like some complex searches work but others don't. 

Ability to export search results (in my case I export a lot to csv for analysis)

There are other little things like the missing guides which I'd love to see. for example I use the commentary guide all the time on the desktop rather than the passage guide because I usually just want to quickly load from my commentaries.

I haven't followed Logos Now much in the last year--are there additional features in the web app for the Logos Now subscription or is that just access to new features in Logos in general?

Hi Samuel,

Thanks for your feedback!

We definitely want to bring as much as we can from the desktop, but it's a balancing act -- the desktop has many small features that greatly help people, but we had many years to build them all and many more users than what the web app has yet. :) That said...

  • If you know the search syntax, much of the search functionality will work on the site, but you're right that it's not 100%. We don't have immediate plans for expanding search support. If you have a specific example I'd love to hear it.
  • Expanded guides support is something that we feel is important too.
  • Logos Now doesn't have any effect on the functionality of the site right now.

Hope that helps!
