With the launch of Chromebooks (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/05/new-kind-of-computer-chromebook.html) to supplement tablet pc'ing, I am glad that Logos has gotten a jump on moving toward the cloud.

I hope that we will be seeing things like notes and highlighting and more on the Biblia.com along with even more contracts to get more of my books available on the web.

 

Thanks Logos for working to make my books even more valuable

FWiW I have found Biblia works great with my beta CR-48 Chrome notebook.  Combined with Google Docs (or zoho or whatever) it is a great tool.  

However since library.logos.com was further along, it's the only place you can currently get a study guide and I would opt for that at the moment if I'm away from my desktop L4.

Biblia will no doubt pass the former site way up but I have no idea when.

I am considering buying a Chromebook at the moment, and am trying to figure out if it is worth it, based on my usage of Logos. I am a Bible college student and heavily reliant of Logos. Biblia.com is great, but there are still some things that make me weary in regards to getting a Chromebook. How advanced do you think Biblia will be, or do you think that maybe there will be a Logos for Chrome app?

Biblia.com is the closest thing to a Chrome app we have planned. Biblia will continue evolving, but it will never reach the functionality of Logos 4. Biblia is designed to appeal to a more casual audience than Logos 4 is, and it's not really practical to implement a lot of those features in Biblia. That said, the best way to get us to implement a feature you want is to ask for it :)

I agree with Mr. Black and Mr. Phillips; I would love Biblia to incorporate the Exegetical Guide and Word Study capabilities.

I invision a day when FULL Logos functionality will be available through a web browser. Who would have thought 10 years ago we would be able to do what we do now?

Seven is a perfect number! (And the functionality must be a long way there as a result of the iPhone app. Can you borrow their server-side code?)

Personally, I'm in love with the concept of the Chromebook, and more importantly, the cloud. I must say though that I'm a little dissapointed by the statement that Biblia is not planned to reach the functionality of Logos 4. Yes, I recognize that there might be certain limitations to making the web app 100% identical to the software, but, frankly, if the app were suitable enough to replace my software on the computer, I'd be more inclined to switch to it. Why take up the hard drive space if you don't need to? Why confine your software to one machine if you could access it anywhere? It is not uncommon to find myself accessing 5 or more different computers on a daily basis, given my present situation as both a worker and a student. The cloud concept is making such a predicament not quite as difficult for me. Again, I'm not saying that you need to implement all the bells and whistles of the software, but I would appreciate it if Biblia offered most of them, or at least enough to make a nice alternative to the software itself.

Yes,  Passage Guides and Bible Word Studies in Biblia.com would be wonderful.

 

Thanks
