Just to let people know, the makers of the Glo Bible app have it on sale this week at a sharp discount. It's also on the Mac and iOS app store.

Glo is not at all a replacement to Logos and doesn't come close to Logos for Biblical research, but it does make a nice supplement to Logos (I have the icon in my shortcuts bar).

What's great about it is that it contains an interactive Bible atlas with virtual tours and a lot of rich Biblical media. You can really make the Bible come alive with some of the visual content inside it.

It's basically a replacement to iLumina if anyone's used that app way back when. Same team behind iLumina is in Glo, and a lot of the visual content has been ported over.

There's also a version called Bible360 that adds social features.

Runs on PC, Mac, and iOS. More info at globible.com.

It's definitely not replacing my Logos library, but it supplements it well, and especially churches that use Proclaim or those that teach and need additional media content, here's a way to get a lot of solid interactive content cheap.

I've used some of the multimedia material in my class and agree that it's a good supplement to Logos.

The logos mobile app could learn a thing or two from a Glo.  Appreciate how quickly yo can access a map relevant to the current verse.  Agreed it will never replace Logos, but is a nice supplement - and it has NiV study bible notes.

They do have a good mobile app (Glo). What would be ideal is if Logos could license the content and add it to Biblical People, Places, and Things, so it's all searchable inside Logos. :-)

But in the meantime, it's a fun standalone app and good Logos supplement.
