Lifeway has re-released their Lifeway Reader app for iOS and Android, so in addition to using the web app to read Lifeway books that didn't transfer from Wordsearch to Logos, those reader apps are now available.

Right now, those apps are still showing my entire Wordsearch library in addition to my Lifeway titles. I expect Wordsearch titles will disappear coming up.

That is correct; Wordsearch licenses will be removed from the LifeWay apps soon (because they've been moved to Logos).

Gee! No WS 'Libby-like' to be had? (no needed answer implied). I've thoroughly enjoyed Libby and El Seven (L7) helping each other out. FL has been very kind, in that regard. Libby is already studying for her SATs! Smart girl.

Mac users can also download "Flotato" which allows one to pin web apps to their desktop. I just tried it with the Lifeway eReader, and it works well.

It also works well with the Logos web app, especially if one needs to run Logos on an older/non-supported machine.

Hi Nathan,

where are you seeing the Lifeway Reader App for Android? I checked the Google Store but it only shows the Wordseach Android app. I have several ebooks from Lifeway that I want to read on my Android phone, but have to do it while online, using the Lifeway online reader. I am looking for a way to read those books offline, when I'm on a plane for example.

Thanks,

David

Lifeway told me it is on Google Play. If you're not seeing it, you might want to let Lifeway Support know.

Are they going to fix it because right now you can’t even log into it on iPad. The login in box pops up and then goes off screen sliding off to the top. It has 2.5 on the iOS App Store.

You used to buy ebooks from Lifeway and open them in WS or on mywsb.com but it’s now in an reader in a browser and terrible. Lifeway is clueless about digital and I can see why they sold WS.

Strange because I can successfully login from both my iPhone and iPad. It looks and feels similar to the WS app for iOS/iPadOS. The experience isn't "great" (Lifeway and Wordsearch on mobile never was ideal), but I'm able to get it "functional".

When Lifeway took over Wordsearch, they didn't do much to really enhance it, so I'm hoping the experience in Logos will be better. It will be if key resources (such as CBL and EGGNT) eventually move from "eBooks" to "Logos Research Editions", plus having everything inside the Logos apps instead of Logos and Wordsearch apps will help.

Just my 2 cents... Both the LifeWay and WordSearch apps which are currently installed on my iPad both open and appear to work correctly.

Also note that these were on the iPad before the acquisition.

I know my cousin a couple days ago was having his WordSearch app not open/lock up on him. I had him delete it from his iPad and re-install from the app store and it started working correctly for him at that point.

Did you install IOS 14 on your Ipad and Iphone. I have installed IOS 14 on my Ipad and the WS app crashed immediately.

I recently updated to iOS/iPadOS 14. I will test again.

I just checked. No. I am currently on version 13.6.1 for the iPad (don't have an iPhone).

I tested on iOS/iPadOS 14. The app launches, but I can’t read any content (even Lifeway books). Lifeway Support should probably be notified.

Long-term, I wish Faithlife would acquire the Lifeway eBooks as well and fold them into Logos so Lifeway can shut down their eBook reader and focus exclusively on publishing.

After updating to iOS14 I cant open the WS app And all my books have not yet been transferred to Logos.

Which is the Lifeway Reader app? I couldn't find in the app store. Could you please paste a link here.

Thanks.

Same here. I can only use the PC version. iPhone and iPad version after updating to iOS14 doesn't work.

If there is a LifeWay App, it is only showing up in the US Store. I am in school with Liberty in Germany and had access to the WordSearch Bible app. However, now I have no way to view my books offline. Could you ask them to add the App to the World-Wide stores, so students and missionaries can access their content? 

Thank you!
