I understand that licensing issues may explain a few of my missing resources, but of my 8493 resources, 354 of them are not available on my iPad. Here are some examples.

  • Adolf von Haarlack Collection - 7 out of 22 volumes
  • The Whole Works of the Reverend John Flavel - 0 out of an singe, 6-in-1 volume
  • The Works of the Rev. Isaac Watts - 6 out of 14 volumes
  • The Works of the Late Reverend Robert Murray McCheyne - 3 out of 4 volumes
  • The Works of John Wycliffe - 7 out of 12 volumes
  • The Works of Robert Traill - 2 out of 4 volumes
  • The Lives of the Puritans - 0 out of 3 volumes
  • The Works of Reverend John Howe - 0 out of 3 volumes
  • The Writings of John Bradford - 1 out of 2 volumes

Is there something wrong with my system or are these books not yet available for our mobile devices?

Most of those look like former community pricing resources. Is that right? I would think all of them should be mobile enabled. Have you downloaded all of these resources? Have you tried deleting the app? (you will lose your downloaded resources).

Some are.  Many are from the new 500 Mega Pack...  I'll delete the app and reinstall.

Thanks!

Well, I reinstalled it.  Resource count didn't change.  I searched for several of the missing titles, and they're just not there.

Strange... Although, sometimes resources are combined... I don't own any of these to check.

Somethings wrong.  Do you think it could be on the server side?

I searched for "ebook" in my library and nothing showed up.  But in my recently viewed resources, I noticed David Murray's Jesus on Every Page.  So I downloaded it and made it local.  Now a search for "ebook" yields the David Murray book but nothing else.  I should have more than a hundred ebooks...

For the examples I listed, I got the total number from my desktop.  So I'm pretty sure most of them are not combined.

So, reopened the app and it "indexed" again.  Now all of the missing volumes (listed above) are back.  Problem solved; I guess.  It seems like the reinstall worked; it just took a while.  Thanks, Alabama!

I still wonder about those 354 resources that are not available (the count on my iPad hasn't changed).  I wish there was an easy way to figure out which one aren't available for mobile devices.  Anyhow, 96% of them are, so I should be happy.

Thanks again.

The correct syntax in your library should be edition:ebook. Is that what you used?

I concur. Tongue Tied

At this point, your best bet might be some sort of search trick on the website... but I am not good at creating those myself. I don't know if you can search my mobile enabled or not. If so, a search for non-mobile enabled + owned resources would produce a good list.

It may not fit your definition of easy but there is a way using the Desktop version. Select all the books in your library, then in the info Panel set them to download to your iPad. I had them download to my FaithLife app because I do not use it. Then I could easily uncheck them all when I was done. Once they've all been set to download close the library, then reopen it so everything refreshes. Now sort your library by the "devices" field. When I did this there were 259 items that were not checked. I believe these resources are the ones that cannot be downloaded to your iPad.

Halo Hound:

Thanks, I've been looking for a way to find what is not available on the web apps.  For me it looks like mostly the biblical archaeology society and AMG resources. I'm wondering why works that should be public domain or available for free pretty much every where else are not available for mobile or web (apparently Oswald Chambers is not available on mobile and I show some works from John Piper unavailable).

Halo, can you tell us how to select all library books in one click? Please forgive my ignorance.

wishing you a Merry Christmas.

unfortunately I couldn't find a way to do it all at once either.  The best way I found was to hold down shift and press page down repeatedly until everything was selected. I have a library of 5600 books and it was annoyingly doable.  I would love to see ctrl shift A select all the resources.
