I have been trying for weeks to figure out this one... How do I easily switch Bibles in the iPhone app?

Currently I go to text compare then select a Bible there. 

Thanks in advance!

If you swipe down and tap more, then you can select another bible as your prefered bible.

If you just want to open another bible you can swipe down and then tap library and search for the bible you want to open.

You can also select the compare texts and have access to your top five bible. Click on the link and it opens the verse in context.

Problem with going to the library is that I don't see how to quickly just look at Bibles...

Changing the "preferred Bible" is also not an ideal situation either...

Nice if you could touch the Bible name and go into a Bibles selection...

I have to admit, this is one area that I find myself repeatedly going to "You Version"  to accomplish...

Fixing this would make Logos MUCH easier to use...

In your library, type bib eng and it will list your English Bible translations.  Hope this helps.  You can do similar abbreviations for dictionaries & commentaries etc. I felt Logos did a good job of getting the library to recognize these abbreviations.

True, the abbreviations are good, but from a usability standpoint, other iphone bibles require only 2 clicks to change a bible... Logos is tap, Library, B, I, B, then scroll then select the bible you want,

Minimum of 7 clicks to get there....

Yes I whole heartily agree.  Improvement is needed and will be welcomed.  Edit: I don't have the iPhone app this is on iPad.

On the other hand for those who might be interested here are some more of those abbreviations.

 

eng bib = English Bibles

gr dic = Greek lexicons

dic = most dictionaries

nt comm = picks up some NT commentaries

harm = harmonies of the Bible

dic lex = language dictionaries

comm Luke = commentaries on a specific book

com luke nic = narrows it to NICNT

bi di = Bible dictionaries

bda = BDAG

There is a (somewhat kludgy) way to do this.

On my iPad, I have the top (or left) window open to bibles, and the bottom (or right) window open to reference tools (usually TSK, but also some commentaries, etc.)

If you swipe down in a window, then press (not tap) the history button, a list of open books for that window will come up. So, for the bible window, the three or so bibles I look at. In the reference window, the standard works I use. Of course, you can add more by going into the library.

I say it's kludgy, because the various bibles and tools don't stay in sync. Still, it works fairly well.
