I love the word info now. However it does not display when I am offline. I have lexicons downloaded. Is there  one in particular that needs to be downloaded?

Mike, what resource are you trying to get word info in when offline? There are some restrictions (same on iOS), for instance it doesn't work in English Bibles. If you are trying with an original language resource, let us know which resource and where in the resource so we can investigate.

Thank you for the clarification, Todd I was using an English Bible. Tried it with NA28 and it worked great! In fact the response time for the pop up was faster without an internet connection. May want to consider that to improve performance when internet connection is present.

I noticed that within a note it is not possible to select a linked verse and see a preview (like in any commentary or other logos book)

Would it be possible to include a preview for the notes as well?

At the moment the only way it works is to use a second tab or to use a split screen which is not very helpful on a smaller tablet.

Thanks in advance for any comment.

Like the word lookup feature too.

But now selecting a range, like all or most of a paragraph, is extremely tough, sometimes impossible, because the word lookup takes precedence.
