Patrick Lavey:

I see a bunch of replies, but not one addressed Brian's original question:

Does the Android app version of Logos/Verbum have functionality to download your entire Library with one click instead of only one book/resource at a time?

Not interested in off-topic discussions about indexing. Does the functionality exist or not? It does on the iPad version of the app.

Thank you very much.

You could do it from the logos desktop. Search for the forum thread 'download all workaround'. Hope that helps. Cheers

Chelsea FC- Today is a good day!

It can be done by "pushing" your library to your devices from the desktop Logos 5. Click on your library icon and when the list of the books in your library is displayed press Ctrl+a on your keyboard. This should select all the books in your library. To the right of your library book list you should see "Download all to...".  Check the box of the device you want the books downloaded to and you are done.  The books will be downloaded to your device after the first library update on your device (usually right after you start your llogos app on your Android or IOS device.

You get about 99% of your resources that way. For whatever reason, a few books can't be pushed to the mobile devices.

The reason is some publishers won't allow Logos to push their resources to mobile devices and we have to honor that agreement.

That is not the full truth.

I purchased the SESB a few years ago, which included four versions of the norwegian bible. Since I already had the OLL package with SESB for logos users, I did not need it. I bought it for the sole purpose of getting the norwegian bibles. None of those are available for purchase after the SESB was discontinued, but they are available on the desktop for those who bought the package when it was. They are not, however, available on mobile.

I have been in contact with both DBG, which published the SESB, and the norwegian bible society, which publishes the norwegian bibles. Neither of them admitted to be the obstacle for mobile availability. In fact, the guys in norway promised to contact Logos in order to solve the problem. Nothing has happened, and I will assume that Logos is to blame.

A couple of years ago, logos launched a pre-pub, containing the most recent norwegian translations. In good Logos-fashion, however, it is extremely expensive, and bundled with a version that no one desires (an interim version, containing a revised NT and older OT). Is this a scheme meant to discourage norwegian users from using Logos?. Well, of course this is just prepub, and will probably never be finished. Angry

I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations. I wish I could give you more information, but this is a little bit out of the scope of the mobile team's knowledge. I'm not 100% sure what your next step should be (maybe an MVP can provide more info?) but perhaps contacting customer support or creating a new post in a different forum would get you more information about why these particular resources aren't available on mobile.

Actually, I was talking about resources that can be downloaded onto mobile, but can't be pushed from the Windows application.

The issue here is that its free and not available to purchase for the desktop and - hence - not manageable from the desktop

There is another category of books which can't be managed in this way either - Vyrso books published by Zondervan, for some reason, can't be "download managed" from the Logos 5 library. This is discussed at http://community.logos.com/forums/p/67478/470467.aspx and elsewhere

The help is pretty much this: Don't do it!. One of the great strengths of the mobile platform over the desktop is that you do not need to download all your resources. If you have a base package you are probably only using a fraction of it anyway. The rest is just noise.

In the mobile app there is no indexing, because searches are run online. Same goes for the guides. This will not change, even if you download your entire library to your device. Not downloading everything will minimize the space required for the Logos app.

On the other hand you can (and perhaps should) download the resources you use often. In the library, press the info button on the far right of the book title. A dialog opens where you can download the resources.

If you really want to download more resources, you can make a search of your library, and simply keep it broad enough. This will present you with a "Download all" button on the top of the resource list. You could do a couple of searches, download all, and then download the rest manually. Finally I believe you can download resources remotely from within Logos 5 on the desktop (though I have never done this). In the library window, select a resource. On the sidebar you are presented with the names of your mobile devices, along with checkboxes which represent each Logos-app installed on the device. It is only a matter of clicking the boxes (or so I presume).
