My guess is that they’re going to ditch the numbering system in some way, hence unbound

mab:

I'm not sure if I will tune in. But I already emailed my rep that I will order my new base package through him. 

It's been so long since I have bought something of substance, I forgot who my rep is. /sigh

I expect ”Unbound” means either

(1) a fully functioning web app, or

(2) an unlocked subscription service that you pay by the month ( I think you can already get that in IOS), so-

I hope it’s number (1)

The web app has had a number of updates recently. I don’t know what was updated but if I left had to reload the page on three occasions with e message saying a new version was available.  Not sure if that is usual.

Maybe being "unbound" is fully functioning features on the desktop version without having to be connected to the internet! I would benefit from that greatly.

Maybe it's a more fully-functioning mobile (iOS/Android) version of the app? 

Whatever it is, I'm sure it'll be nice (and hopefully mature enough for release).

I still want Logos to be unbound from computers. Just design and upload my library through a neural interface please.

Or maybe “Unbound” in the sense that the speed issue will no longer bound the software and it will finally be lightning fast!

When I mentioned Logos X, I got shot down pretty quickly by those committed to "Logos 9" - https://community.logos.com/forums/p/194104/1120505.aspx#1120505

I would be VERY VERY disappointed if they moved away from an installed version of the software. I often go long periods without internet.  We have no internet at the church. While I don't travel as much as I used to, I used to write my sermons on the plane.

Right now, I have a powerful laptop and over 6000 books at my fingertips without having to go online to access them. It is one of the reasons I went with Logos so many years ago. I would greatly miss that ability.

Bob Pritchett committed in the past to not walking away from desktop software and I don't believe anyone expects him to not honor his word on that with Logos 9, people, myself included are justing saying it maybe that the web app will be pushed more front and centre than it has until now because it has been under development for a number of years but is now probably ready - using FL's definiton of ready - to push it to a wider audience. FL have never really gone to the market and said hey look at our you beaut web app.

If you ae very disappointed tommorrow so would a lot of other people be very disappionted and to take away the deskotp app from people in your position woud be to go against FL's core misson to serve the church through technology as there are significant part so the church worldwide in your situaiton.  Customers like yourself don't have a big voice on these forums because as you said you dont't go online for long periods of time.

Another option:

Logos Unbound is the level beyound Logos Ultimate. With Logos Ubound you get access to every resource in the Logos Cataloge.

DIsciple II:

Gordon Jones:

The word "unbound" is an interesting choice.

A hard launch of the web app to a wider audience. About four years ago give or take on exact details FL started on a journey of a new web app and notes tool. With Logos 8 they released and very much unfinished notes tool which was a significant part of, but not all of course, of the web app.  There is always more potential enhancements to come for the web app and the notes tool but one could say they are now reasonably well developed after this period of time, so Logos Unbound is Logos inbound from a desktop installation, unbound from a mobile device installation, Unbound from the need to instal, you can access your resources, user created content and major Tools through a Browse. With WS now out of the picture along with its web app FL is probably the only major bible software provider which backs up its installation bound applications with a significant installation unbound application through a web browser. And being unbound to an installation it is unbound to an operating system.

it is however bound in one significant way - bound to the need for a reliable internet connection.

P.S. there is probably no truth in this scenario so we’ll have to wait and see what the author intended the text to mean rather than reading our own interpretation into the text, but it is interesting to read what people think it means all the same Cool

 I  wish unbound means a subscription tier that have all access to any Logos resources. But it is unlikely what it means.

Anyway I‘m also sad to see they host the livestream on Facebook. I wish they did it on their own Faithlife site, or YouTube. I understand it is a pragmatic choice to reach audiences. But comparing Facebook and Youtube I can’t see how Youtube can’t reach the audiences they would reach in Facebook instead. Facebook is such an evil company that people should avoid and Faithlife endorsing it is not a good message.

I also wish unbound includes a remake of this forum. Typing here on mobile hurts.

Agree 110%!!

I will never use Facebook! FL has a perfectly functional website and YouTube has a wide worldwide base!
