Not saying this is what is going to be called, but this statment by Dave Dunkins seems to me to say that a major update is coming.

The seemingly plateaued state of the app is because we were hitting the limits of what we could do with small changes and are now working on big changes, specifically integrating the full Logos display engine. Big changes take longer. Notes and highlighting are coming, just not as soon as we would all like. Thanks for your patience.

So, if version 2 is coming (or something like it; a major update), here is what I am hoping will be added and possible with the new update.

  1. copy/paste
  2. highlighting/markup
  3. note taking and syncing with desktop
  4. fully offline installation - only needs to be online to sync or download books
That is also in order of importance for me. What do you want?

In addition to the features you listed, I'd like to see (in no particular order)

1. footnotes available offline (not sure whether this is possible/how easy it would be)

2. Some sort of equivalent to the cited by tool

3. Ability to search within offline books (nothing fancy, just a "find" feature within the currently opened book would be nice)

EDIT 4. Oooh, and Biblical People/Places/Things would be AWESOME!

@Dave - I know you can't commit to a date or anything (and I don't expect you to), but any chance of a broad hint of how far out this major update is? Are we talking weeks? Months? Half a year? Tomorrow? Stick out tongue (Kidding on that last one Wink )

And of course, two windows open at once allowing active linked books.

Actually these would be solved by what I envision as offline installation.

In order of importance:

1. Highlighting and Notes (a must); clippings (maybe...)

2. Dual resource view although this may only be practical for the ipad. What's an iphone anyway? :-)

3. Better original language "stuff." I have never enjoyed using original language resources on the Logos ipad app. I would love to see something that could parse (quickly) on the fly when I am listening to a sermon or doing a quick study of the Greek/Hebrew. It needs to be more "snappy" and have the ability to quickly pull up a lexical entry.

4. New UI layout (maybe), or something more Ipad specific. With the Ipad you've got a lot more space for an elegant UI. I am okay with the one we've got, but I could imagine something better.

5. *I am not sure if this is even on their radar, but sentence diagramming on the ipad would, IMHO, be an awesome experience. It would really give you the feeling of "interaction" you miss when you are diagramming with a mouse.

6. How about an integration of book deals, blog articles, and the like. I could see Logos doing a great job with this.

7. A "preaching" portion for the app which would allow linking of information, texts, illustrations, maybe even powerpoint integration (you could even use a Logos button to advance slides running off a computer connected to a wireless network).

My prioritized list of features is as follows:

1.  Fully offline installation

2.  Fully offline installation

3.  ...

The reason for my beating on the "fully offline installation" is that I expect it would include many of the features other users are requesting including:

a.  Full support for offline support  footnotes and references

b.  Viewing highlighting done in Logos 4 ... and likely some highlighting capability (which may have to be simplified due to the constraints of the iTouch form factor.

c.   Copy and paste - again potentially constrained due to the form factor

d.   Notes ???  I am personally not looking forward to typing notes on a virtual keyboard.  Now, if there was a Logos app. for a smartphone that had a decent keyboard - say maybe for the new BB Torch, then note taking may be manageable.

Actually, the iPad is a great option for notetaking on the go (not so much for iPhone though).

You can purchase (from Apple) a real keyboard for the iPad that also props up the iPad (in portrait orientation) right in front of you. It is full size and is a dream to type on.

You can also download an iPad app -- Tap Typing is the name I believe -- which will give you touch typing lessons (and pointers along the way) using your virtual iPad keyboard. It will improve both your typing speed and also accuracy. I enjoy virtual typing (and am much better at it) having worked thru many of the typing lessons.

Personally, I can't WAIT for the iPad/iPhone app to be updated. . .

I would like to have a way of looking through my library a little easier.  Something similar to the alphabet on the right side of the screen, the way the ipod handles music.  It would also be nice to be able to filter your library to only show downloaded resources or those not downloaded (to make downloading easier.)

Below are my prioritized feature requests:

 

1. Prayer list sync.

2. Copy/paste

3. Multiple open windows (at least two)

4. Interlinear Bible View

 

I see that iPad prayer list sync is very popular on this thread.  Can everyone that wants this feature vote for it here:

I would love to see all of these updates mention previous but I would also like to see

1. folders in favorites and/or

2. Verse lists.

I just want to have lists of verses that are encouraging, for hospital visits, and theological issues i deal with. I like during visits to read a verse or two and it takes a bit longer to try to remember it, then find it, and then read it. It would also be nice to have a start toggle which should be easy enough because it would help just to mark a couple for easy finding when i go to head into a hospital room. I think with either of these additions i would be able to use it the way i want.

I had an old bluetooth keyboard from my Palm days. It is a full sized keyboard and it works with the IPad. This saved me some money.

The only feature that I really miss is the ability to store a favorite while off the net.  It makes reading a lot more difficult if the app cannot remember a place. Notes would be nice, but ONLY if they are accessible (for read and write) when the unit is off the net.  If they are online use only - then they would be worthless to me.
