Does Logos have a wishlist for the iPad app?

For the past few months, I have been forcing myself to use Logos instead of my hardcopy Bible at a weekly Bible study.  As a result, I have a few suggestions for making the iPad app into a better product.  For example:

  • Support tabbed reading panes (Google Chrome implemented this interface extremely well).  I am not talking about splitting the screen.
  • Ability to search on New Testament, not the entire Bible.
  • Ability to scroll text, not simply turn a page.  If this is not possible, at least let users align the page to any starting point.
  • Allow me to use my BDAG more easily, at least when I am connected via WiFi, to look-up selected words.
  • With IOS 6, support Siri's voice capabilities to permit hands-free navigation.

David - Welcome to the forums! 

You have some good suggestions. Logos does have a uservoice account, but they do not have one specifically for the mobile apps. Sad

I love David's wish list and would add my support to his list, scrolling and tabs especially.

I would like to voice my support of Logos investing in developing the iPad/iPhone app further.  Tabbed reading and limited Bible search field would be greatly useful.  I see more and more iPads at my seminary, and know that Logos could really further their case to be the leader in Bible software with a robust application for the iPad.

I can't speak as to the suggestions given, but I can assure you that Logos is continuing to develop the app.

I will get behind the suggestion for scrolling as well.  This would be a great help. 

In God we trust. All others bring data.

These are great suggestions!! The ability to actually scroll the text would be so beneficial

Those are all needed enhancements.  Additionally, I would like to see the ability to have a "downloaded only" view for library.

Ditto these enhancement request.

Also appreciate the hard work the iOS team at Logos are putting into making the iPad version more 'usable' and 'effective' for pastoral studies. Keep them coming!

I would also like to see where you could use your split screen to have, lets say your Bible/Interlinear on top and your notes/lesson on the bottom of the screen. The developments are coming along great. Keep it up.

I would like everything on your list and my order or priority would be

  • Search restricted to subset of bible (nt, out, single book etc)
  • Easier lexicon lookup
  • Tabbed 
  • Option for scrolling
  • Voice but I would prefer read to me option over voice navigation

Prayer lists which sync to the desktop is the only thing keeping me from always using my iPad for my quiet time.

Yes,

Independent multiple scrollable (and linked if required) split screen. I think Laridian does this best - looks good and is readable with 3 splits.

Excellent list overall.  Personally, I haven't  thought of need to scroll text, so not 100% clear on how it would provide a better user experience, so I'd probably put this at bottom of list if I was going to prioritize the list.

I agree Read to me should also be on list, but like voice navigation, though would probably not see it as a great option in a classroom or church, everyone talking to their iPad could get a little distracting, just one person in church would be distracting for the congregation, but would find it useful in other situations.

Andrew- I also don't put scrolling high on my list, but I can explain it a little. One reason is that when you are highlighting, sometimes the text spans two pages. Scrolling would allow you to position the text appropriately. This is the only reason I would want this feature. A "half page turn" would work for me just as well (or better)

That's a good point! I would like to have scrolling and page turning as options.

Ok, not sure what this would be called, but 

 

PLEASE

Make an option, to allow the bible, always start at the same point. Foe example, on an iPad, I would like Romans 1:4 or what ever to always appear at the same place. Many people have a photographically memory, and the only thing I don't like about electronic bibles, is verse keep moving around - where as - in an actual bible, I can remember things like, roman 1:4 is on the right page, 2nd column pretty close to the bottom... And I can remember many verses like that.

So, I would like some way to, select, for every time I go to a verse or chapter, for all the verses to still be in the same place as last time... So I could begin to photographically memorize, my favorite bible version, in electronic format on my ipad

 

Hope that makes sense?

 

Does anyone else memorized were verses are on a page like this too? Sorry for the mis-spellings I can't go back and change what I typed for some reason...

In addition to scrolling, I'd like to see the highlighting feature use fewer button presses by eliminating the "Done" button.
