What happened to the '100,000 Forum users' Sale?Crying

They're selling forum users?  Oh my !  Wink

I can only imagine that you must be priceless George.

Is that because I'm worth more than could possibly be paid or because no one would pay anything?  Don't answer that !  Wink

What happened to the '100,000 Forum users' Sale?

Thread => 75,000 forum users and 350,000 posts included a question:

smithereens:
Which do we reach first: 100k users or 500k posts? And which calls for a bigger Forum Week celebration?

Logos Bible Software forums now has 112,195 users and 486,315 posts.  Hoping for Huge Half million forum post celebration. Party!!!

Tonya J Ross:

Development is considering implementing a 'Send to Kindle' feature for resources in your Logos library.  

 

Before investing a significant amount of time on this item, we would like to assess user interest based on the fact that this feature would not support sending notes/highlights to or receiving notes/highlights from Kindle devices/apps (which is mentioned in the UserVoice request for this item).

 

Please let us know if you would still be interested in seeing this feature.

+1 Yes for 'Send to Kindle' feature.

Keep Smiling Smile

Definitely interested! This would be great. I've been debating getting a tablet of some kind to be able to read books on, but haven't because of price, preference to laptops for portable computer use, not wanting a nice tablet just for reading, etc. I would probably purchase a cheap kindle paperwhite just for reading if you created this feature. That way I could read on a tablet-like device and leave computing to a real computer.

Do you know that you can already read your Logos books on the Kindle? You just have to export them out of Logos into a text file and then load the text file onto your Kindle (not as nice as a "send to Kindle feature," but it just takes a few minutes to export a book.) If I understand what Logos is propossing, this feature wouldn't make reading on the Kindle possible, it would make it easier by automating the process of exporting the book onto your device. So if you are wanting to read on an e-ink, you don't have to wait for this feature.

That would be good news then. I still have to buy a kindle though, lol. And, as I think about it, it might be worth the wait until this feature is added anyway. The desire is that one could read Logos books on kindle without much trouble and in an economical way. Spending a lot of time and effort converting books just to be able to read them on a kindle defeats both of those purposes.

Apologies if someone already posted this and I missed it, but there is a guide on the Wiki on how to export a Logos book to Kindle format and maintain footnotes, section makers, and the table of contents. Obviously native support would be easier, but this is the best workaround I've found for now. Here's the link:

If you do buy a Kindle Fire as this feature is already present for that version. You can select the Kindle Fire just as you can an iPhone or iPad. The only difference is that you will need to reboot the Kindle Fire for the books to load there.

And of course, since I just clicked confirm on an order for a kindle paperwhite, I'm eager to see this come to pass.Yes

I could swear you said "paper weight". I wanted one too. Smile

After some consideration I don't support/want the idea of Send to Kindle.

I think the Barnes n' Noble Nook HD 16 GB (or 8 GB if You have a small library on it) is a much better option. It costs a little more but has equally good battery life and more Logos functionality. Additionally the advantage of not supporting Logos's biggest competitor!

There's discussion going on right now in: Logos for Nook HD and HD+; It works!!. The news consists of that Barnes n' Noble has recently enabled installation of Logos on Nook, and someone tested it and it works very well!

So IMO Logos could save all the programming effort! Are You with me?

No, and you are still confused. This has nothing to do with the Kindle Fire. It is about the Kindle e-Ink readers, which have MUCH better battery life than does the Nook. Furthermore, the sale on the nook is one week only.

How on earth is it possible that a Send to Kindle feature would not support Amazon - wouldn't it for example encourage Logos users to buy Kindle books too?:

Fair enough, but would the battery cost for a Nook (battery life 10½ hours) really be a big cost? I would finance the battery cost and partially the device cost by not paying for an internet connection:

Not really. People who buy Kindle books are going to buy Kindle books. I do. (But if I have a choice, I get the Logos edition).

What are you talking about? Who said anything about "battery cost"? The point about battery life is that you can keep reading your book after the Nook would have died!

In the other thread, Android users made it clear (but you weren't listening) that you are going to have to have a wifi connection at some point… the same as with the Kindle.

This would definitely be a useful feature for me even without the notes aspect. Please please follow through with this!

Anything which makes owning Kindle books easier will be an additional incentive for people to buy them. I'm perplexed that not more people at Logos User Forums are talking about this!

Well, if it's not a big cost I don't see charging the Nook battery every day as an actual problem at all. There are no advantages with e-ink> it doesn't have functionality:

I'll do fine without the functionality that requires internet. Besides needing internet sometimes for a very limited range of things such as downloading new purches, certainly doesn't equal needing to pay for an internet connection:

And another advantage with the Nook HD is that it's available now. I wouldn't start investing in Kindle books, how do You know which ones of them will eventually make it to Logos?! And printed matter is also an alternative. Also, Logos has made no promise (yet?) whether to program the functionality or when it will be done.
