It's most excellent. Has anyone noticed, however, it's quite a bit jerky? It's not fluid is a better way to put it.

I have been told that this is a temporary solution... the developers would like to have a better scrolling solution. I have found, however, that my 3rd generation iPad is much more "fluid" at scrolling than my 1st gen was.

Bama - that's good news. Even on my iPhone 4s and "New" iPad (3rd gen) it's not quite fluid...

Great feature hopefully they can get it as fluid as the new iBooks scrolling... It's very fluid.

It is especially useful when you want to highlight a section which continues just a line or two past the text on the current screen. Previously you had to create two separate highlights.

You can't… It isn't possible to highlight more than can be seen on a single page… but you can try one of two things:

  1. Use the two finger scroll to move the text up or down
  2. Make the text a smaller point size.

While I also applaud the new scrolling, I want to note that it would have been better to use a single finger for scrolling and move the swipe to the two finger gesture. Or at least give us an option to reverse them. That would make the Logos app behave in a more standard iPad app manner. Regardless, the effort is appreciated. But there is always room for improvement in anything done by men, eh? :)

I generally agree that it is better to use "standardized" gesures... I dont know about this case (I can argue both sides). Currently one finger up and one finger down are used to bring up other menus.

I  updated from iPad 2 to the iPad 4 and the scrolling is not jerky other than when I first tried it but once I got the feel of the sense of Touch there is a smooth flow.

The Logos app is not only inconsistent with the standard iOS app manner, it is inconsistent within itself. You use a one-finger scroll for the library and other areas, and then you switch to a two-finger scroll when you are reading books.

I too appreciate the addition of scrolling because it makes highlighting much easier, but is there anything wrong with just having it be a one-finger scroll like other apps and like the other parts of the Logos app?
