Thank you for the clarifications on my comments, I fully admit I don't know much about the mobile class of Windows 8 products, just that the surface RT has had less than a favourable reception overall.

I was going to buy a Nokia Windows Phone....but it looks like no Logos app.

Heavy sigh.

It is true, however the reason IMHO is the availability of Surface Pro with full Windows support. It shouldn't be taken as a sign of the less potential of Windows Phone 8 platform which is going to grow IMHO even Windows RT platform would not exist and all Windows tablets would be running full Windows 8. But that's just my understanding of the situation.

P.S. My Nokia Lumia 820 is wonderful mobile device and also is waiting Logos to come to that platform Smile

I switched from Windows Phone to Android only because I wanted to use Logos on my mobile device. I would switch back to Windows Phone in a heartbeat if it had the app. Just saying.

Recently switched from an iPhone 4 to the Nokia Lumia 1020, primarily for the camera (we're 6 months in with our first child). I've been using biblia.com on the phone. I seem to have access to most of my Logos library, but it is just a mobile internet site with limited reading and search functionality. I'm giving Laridian's PocketBible Bible Study App a try. Not keen to have duplicate electronic libraries, but I need something robust on the phone, since just like the best camera is "the one you have with you", the best Bible is the one you have with you.

BTW, the camera on the 1020 is outstanding; easily as good or better than a high quality point and shoot (and much more pocketable).

The last post on this thread is August 5, 2013. I thought I would add an update and vote for Logos to port to Windows Phone 8. Is there anyone out there who may know if Logos is monitoring Microsoft's efforts to merge the code base of Windows RT and Windows Phone 8 as an incentive for Logos to port to Windows Phone 8? Thanks for listening - Lord bless!

Although I don't have access to all the tools a native app would provide, I do have access to my Logos library using the free pin it app. You can pin any website to your homepage, and even customize the icon. Seeing how the YouVersion app needs internet anyway, and bible.faithlife.com has descent mobile navigation, I find this to be the best option at this point. I downloaded the logos icon from their press kit and cropped it on the phone so it looks official and everything. I was going to attach a screenshot, but I can't do that from my phone. Here's a link to the pin it app: http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=2280bde7-6918-46b5-a468-50a17984c852

Just picked up a Windows phone after having used Android in the past. Here's my vote for a Logos app.

I was pondering getting a Windows Phone but if there is no Logos app then forget it

I've read that there's a bit of a lag between snaps which has made me hesitate.  Is it that bad?

Bk to Logos:  Yes the Pocket Bible option looks tempting especially as they allow up to 9 bibles and a few resources to be had for free.  Unfortunately neither ESV nor NKJV are free, but ASV is.

Anyway, I see Europe is adopting WP8 phones with significant volume but the US is lagging far behind.  What do the Europeans see that the American's can't?  What's so different about the American market?  Why is WP gaining traction in Europe but not in the US?

Bradley Grainger (Logos):

We're not currently developing a Windows Phone app, but are still watching changes in its market share.

Windows Phone Market share is making inroads in Europe, this raises our hopes:  3.6% Market share in the US with a population of some 320 million compared to over 10% market share in Europe with a population of 739 million.  OTOH, Logos' user base is probably mostly in the US.

I have just switched from an Android phone to a Windows Phone and the Windows Phone is far superior to the Android.  Logos please stop debating before you wait yourself out of the market.  I agree with many others on this thread.  You are already committed to the Windows platform stop procrastinating and get a move on, please.

I would love to see an app for Windows phones as well. I'm ready to switch over to a Nokia 1520 but I can't make the move without Logos.

Hi guys, does anyone know what's going on with this issue?  This post is almost a year old and I sure hope we're not still hearing the same ole things.  Our church is Windows based and we run Windows 8.1 on all of our systems.  We are also in the process of moving to Surface Tablets and other Windows 8 based technology.  This includes Nokia phones and Samsung & Lenovo systems.  Many of our congregants are also using these products as well as Blackberry phones (yes they're still around) and are asking for a solution that works for them.  Unfortunately, if Logos doesn't come up with a solution that meets a more diverse technology group we will have to pursue other options.  It seems that Logos is more interested in the Apple world then the Windows world. All it it takes is to make these same Google & Apple apps to work in Windows 8 and they would satisfy nearly every modern windows device.  We would be able to use these apps on our desktop computers, our tablets, our phones, and yes even on our TV's.  Just because Logos could see beyond a phone app and realize this is bigger than phones.  Windows 8 apps work on 'everything' windows 8.  How much 'market share' does Microsoft have across all of these platforms?

I'm also needing more from the Vyrso App which doesn't respond to touch zoom for some reason.  That's bazaar since it was designed with tablets in mind. At least that's the impression I get from what's been written about it.

So, what's going on Logos?  Time to break out and stop drinking the cool-aid.  Smilies

Well, it's not 100% write once, run anywhere yet, but there is a lot of overlap now, and more coming. Logos will know how much needed functionality falls into the realm that still differs between Windows 8 Store apps and Windows Phone 8 apps. Nonetheless, this doesn't seem like a hurdle too hard to cross if the flesh is willing ;-)

Yes Joe, I agree.  I don't think it's that much of a difference to cast off the whole idea.  Making the necessary tweaks to bridge the gap certainly is worth it considering the overall benefit of having the ability to give all Windows 8 users access to Logos software with just a reasonable amount of tweaking.  The benefit would be huge to Phone & RT users.  Once it works in RT the majority of windows 8 users would also benefit.  But like you said and I do agree "If the flesh is willing".

Personally, I think Logos is now without excuse. This subject is now over 1year old Which in anyone's consideration is poor customer support not characteristic of them, but now damaging their good reputation.

if anyone from the Logos team is reading this, you should escalate this to you VP or board of directors.

I understood the reason for not working on the WP7 OS, as WP8 was going to be different from the ground up. But (as I understand it) the coding for WP8 apps is much more compatible with what is done with Android or iOS, and should make it easier to at least start with a ported app from one of those.

Like the rest of you, I've invested a good deal of money in my Logos library, and I'm disappointed that I have had to invest again in another product to use on my Windows phone.  Logos should at least get its feet wet with the flashcard app.  It might be worth it to ask Microsoft to help fund the full app development, since they want to close the app gap, and Logos users are the most invested Bible app users in the marketplace. But this simply needs to happen.  If somebody on the Logos team actually used a current Windows phone, I think they would understand the loyalty to that product and why it is growing.
