Is there any way to change the Bible version displayed in the Android app?

Press the current Bible version, then press the home button on the top right side of the screen, then navigate to the library, and choose new version. My default version carried over from L4.

Lynden Williams:

Unlike the Logos app, I can see no way to navigate to the library in the Faithful app. Do you mean press and hold on the text of the Bible? If I do this, I get the verse selector. I don't see any home icon. There is in information icon and a table of contents icon in the upper right.

I realize that Faithlife picked up my default Bible from L4, which is good.

But there should be a simple and obvious way to change the Bible displayed.

On the iPad you change Bible translations or the study Bible notes for that matter via the favorites tool, a star at the upper right.  You set the translations or study Bibles, Bible dictionaries etc. on your desktop on favorites and they sync to iPad favorites. I don't have any android devices so I am not sure how far they are developed, but eventually, if not already, that is how they are to work.   Actually I don't know if everyone knows it, but the FSB makes a great tool as a study Bible in general.  You can change the study Bible pane to any study Bible you own or any Bible dictionary, as well as the FSB itself accessing many of your resources.  There isn't any access directly to your library, but if you go to the search tool (on the iPad) and put your iPad in airplane mode you can see what you have downloaded.

HI Harry

Harry Hahne:
Unlike the Logos app, I can see no way to navigate to the library in the Faithful app. Do you mean press and hold on the text of the Bible? If I do this, I get the verse selector. I don't see any home icon. There is in information icon and a table of contents icon in the upper right.

If you are reading a resource - for example - there should be a "home" icon in the top-left of the pane.

If you press that you should go to a pane which has five icons at the top - one for search, one for devotionals, one for Faithlife, one for news and one for settings.

If you select the search one you should see that at the top of that pane there are five small dots with one highlighted indicating which of five pages you are on.

Scroll through these pages (scrolling is left-right not up-down) until you get to the second one (resources). This has a range of Faithlife resource groupings including "Library" one up from the bottom.

Hope this helps

Graham
