Tom Weil:

I didn't know the Kindle would work. Will all models of the Kindle work?

Hi Tom!

The Kindle Fire actually as an App for Logos, and works "fine" according to users.

The other Kindles, from what I understand, don't have an app.  Some people have tried biblia.com on them, but I have not heard much.  I know from my experience that it is a pain to navigate the internet with the older 3rd gen models.  I have not tried the new touch.

Where the older models have worked for people is when they send a document to themselves (maybe they copied part of a book resource they own in Logos) and had it converted to a Kindle format.  Then they could read that resource on their kindle with the eye-pleasing e-ink.

 

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

will the kindle fire handle .doc files and can I create .doc files? I am trying to avoid having to buy the Ipad and truthfully would like the Nook but that doesn't seem to be in the making. Thanks for your help.....tom

My mom has a Kindle Fire, you can send documents to it. So it should work.

oh, I see what you mean.  i don't know if they have a word processing tool on it.  they might have a basic one.  We were speaking more about how to get Logos books onto the Fire by copying text and saving it as a .doc file, and getting that transferred in a form acceptable to the Kindle reader.

Dan DeVilder:
I'd sure like to know if anybody has tried the Android app on a Nook Tablet, and what they thought.

 

Dan

I have gotten the LOGOS app to work (VERY BRIEFLY) an a Nook tablet (new version).  The app ran for one session . The next time I started the Nook the app failed (would start to open a resource and then drop back to the library). I could not get the system to remove and reinstall the app (in fact the Amazon store refused to admit that the Logos app existed????, the app form the logos website refused to install)  So I have dropped the effort pending the app getting accepted by the B&N app store.  I had no luck getting a second distro to run off the SD card, no one has documented the procedure as working and the one Nook Color distro I tried wouldn't work.  I did find some hints that B&N had tried to make running from the card unusable, but I cannot remember where I read about it.  

That said, while it ran it ran pretty well.   The Nook is off being an e-reader/book on tape system for my XYL.

Since I am a gluten for punishment I just replaced the Nook with a Kindle Fire. The LOGOS app loaded first try (but now it is VYRSO that is AWOL from the Amazon program store - what is going on here???). Other than the known issues (menu  does not work is the most serious), it works pretty well, if a bit sluggish.  I have had it for two days now and have been reading quite a bit.  I think that as of now I can recommend the Kindle FIre as a LOGOS tablet.  (but YMMV)  

 

I have access to an iPad (gen 1) and LOGOS works better on that platform than on the Fire but the gap is likely to close "soon" (hopefully before the second coming).

I  use a micro SD card with CyanogenMod on it.  I run Logos and Kindle on it fine.  Just remove the ROM updater application in CyanogenMod and keep checking the Market app for update, uninstall the update as it doesn't allow apps to run.

I wish Logos were native to the Nook Color.

Bob, thanks for your input.  I hadn't realized until recently that it was only the Color, not the Tablet, that worked.  And this, after I had decided the Tablet was "for me."  Hmmm.  I might wait a few months.  Smile

David, were you talking about a Tablet or the Color?  Your last line made me wonder.

I finally bought a Kindle Fire so I could have the Logos app. However without 3g it is really useless.

I have posted this on a different thread but thought it might be useful here.  This is a much simplier method than making the sd bood card yourself.  Very interesting thread.

I've researched the nook color extensively concerning rooting and running android on it.  There is a company out there called  n2acard.com and they produce microsd cards that will boot into an Android tablet without touching the Nook color.  Doesn't void warranty, similar to booting into a Linux live cd but the sd card is persistent meaning you can read and write to it.  There full access to the Marketplace just like a regular tablet.  B&N has not locked the bootloader on the Color like they have on the tablet not allowing this to work on the tablet.

I would think you could use the Logos app and have access to all your library. 

Hope this helps

I have a Nook Tablet that I rooted using the instructions found here.  After rooting use the browser on your NT to browse to this link and you will be able to install a beta version of Logos.

You also may be able to gain access to Logos on NT using the above link if you are running firmware version 1.4.0.  However, it will not work if you are running 1.4.1.

I'm running a Nook Simply Touch (the eInk eBook reader).  This upgraded to the latest Nook release and then rooted. I was able to install Logos from Android Market and it runs just fine. Well, at least as fine as it does on my Droid. I still don't understand why all of the books I own and use on my Mac do not show up on the Android version, but I assume this is a beta issue.

But as far as running on a Nook Simple Touch (so long as you root it) ... WORKS FINE.

Hi Thomas - and welcome to the forums.

Thomas Broad:

This is not a beta issue, it is a licensing issue.

Some publishers have not granted Logos the rights to publish their resources to mobile platforms - this is why some resources are not available to Android and iOS platforms. More resources are being continually added to the list of "mobile-enabled"

To see whether or not a resource is available on mobile devices have a look at its description on the Logos product pages. If it has a mobile phone icon associated with it, it is available on mobile devices.

Ditto, I've got Logos for Android running on my Nook using these same sites. I'm pretty happy with the Nook after rooting it. For me it was the right combination of size, storage (with SD card), quality and price.

 

There are also now ways to root the Nook after it is upgraded to 1.4.1 though they are a bit more complicated.

I just bought Nook Tablets for my wife and I.  I didn't want to void any warranties so rooting was out.  I found an app from one of Mr Walkers posts with a link that let me set the NT to accept installation of other apps.  From there (with an 8GB MicroSDHC card required) I installed Logos right from the logos web site through the .94 release announcement in the forum.

It seems to be working fine although the release is behind the the IPhone release.

It is possible to run the Logos Android App on the Nook Tablet even without rooting it.  I picked up the 16gb NT a couple of weeks ago, have been pouring over the forums (xda-developers is great, also found stuff on tabletroms.com, blog.the-ebool-reader.com) and found a few things.

1- B&N will repartition the memory for you to give you access to 8gb of storage.  You have to take it into the store, but they have the sd card to make it happen.

2- If still on 1.4.0 OS, you can sideload an app that opens up options for you to allow "unknown soures." Go to amazon.com/app-email on the NT's browser.  It will prompt you to allow unknown sources, then lets you download the amazon app market.  You need to get a few apps to make it all work (app manager, NT Hidden Settings, ES File Explorer, etc.), but once it's set up, smooth.  I have been able to add Logos, Vysro, and plenty of other non-B&N apps to my home page and use them regularly.  Again, look to xda-developers for detailed forums.

If beyond 1.4.0 OS, those sites can tell you how to roll back to 1.4.0 and not auto-update.  I didn't want to loose my B&N account and nook stuff, so this was the best way to go.

Peace+ Peter

Peter, thanks for that info--it restores some confidence in the NT for me--I've stayed an NC guy due to BN design decisions in the NT.  

I also *really* wish the L4Android app would do highlights/reading plans.  They must really be having trouble with it.
