Kevin A. Purcell:
Just to clarify, do you mean all the books in our library or all the books that are availabe on the iPhone can be downloaded for offline. Because there are books in my Logos 4 desktop library that are not on the iPhone yet. So I assume you meant the latter - if they are availabe for iphone and we have them in our own library then they can be downloaded for offline use.

Right, all books available on the iPhone are now downloadable if you have a license for that book. We continue to work with publishers for permission to deliver more books to the iPhone.

ShikaiRonniePoon:
Will there be any plans to put offline viewing function into the web version instead of just for iPhone?

Unlikely due to technical challenges.

 

ShikaiRonniePoon:
will there also be plans to develop an app for Android based phones?

Not at this time.

Dave Dunkin:

All books are now available for download if you have the license.

Books that don't work:

Summa Theologica (English)

Church Administration

131 Christians Everyone Should Know

Comical Doctrine

Just so you know, these all (except summa, which I don't have in my library) work for me. I can download them. One thing that you might want to make sure is that you are not trying to swipe the button. It seems a little finicky. If you tap the button it works better than trying to swipe it.

INTERESTING! Kevin- do your books have their covers also or are they also "No cover"?

The three of the four I have do not have icons. But the download switch is active.

I too have many books that are on my desktop, but are not on my itouch.  I am running 1.2.2 of the software... can someone clarify that all logos resources are on the itouch?  What is being said and what is reality are two different things here.

Thanks

Kelly

Kelly, please see my previous post. All books available on the iPhone are now downloadable if you have a license for that book. Not all books are available on the iPhone.

last week it was said that logos was making the books available as soon as the publisher was allowing it.  Northwestern publishing has given the ok for Sermon Studies on Selected Psalms  -  Northwestern Publishing House as it already in the list, but the other 9 books of that set are not listed... is this to mean that they gave the ok for 1 of 10, or did someone miss the ok?  I use the books, well 3 at time for a year, every week... these are quite important to me, any idea as to what is happening with them?  What about the life application bible commentary's?  thanks for your help.

I found this interesting - since I have a lot of Concordia Publishing House resources - and there is only one title available from them. (I think Northwestern may have one or two others.) I wonder if a number of publishers were convinced to give Logos a trial book or two so they could see it on the iPhone app before allowing wider permissions. I am hoping that both Northwestern and CPH clear more titles.

I cant say that you are wrong here Tom, but if that is the case, why give the rights to the least used book of all their logos books?  I just hope that they get these other 9 comentarys on the app, as well as the life application series... these are main things that I use for sermon prep that are not already on the app.

It's not just about rights. Some public domain books are not yet available or have only just become available. The Theological Journals have also been given permission, but are not yet available. I guess some manual work is required as well, and we're also waiting for that.

The theological journals have permission? WOW you've made my day!

I am using version 1.2.2. I have downloaded several books (I have an ipod with 60 gigabytes), most of which is available. After several downloads, the program just kicks me out.  However, a few books seem to have downloaded if I can believe the jet plan icon on the book list. When I go offline and click on my library, only a few of the books are actually accessible, less than the number of books marked with a jet plane icon. I never got the message on any of them saying , xxxx is now available offline. However, while I was downloading, I did see a download icon, which then changed to the jet plane icon.

James, if you download too many books at once, the app can run out of memory and quit. We're working on that. We removed the "now available offline" alert because it was intrusive.

I'm going to suggest that it's not only LOADING (or downloading) books but also just LISTING too many books that causes a crash. It has crashed after I told it to load more on the BOOK LIST from which download selections are made.

James, it would be helpful if you could send a crash report. Thanks.

I am a Logos 4 owner, am signed in on my ipod touch and have tried repeatedly to tap the "available offline" to "on" on several books that all say they are available offline.  The only one I can get to work is the NLT.  I am trying to get La Biblia de las Americas, but it simply will not work.  Any help?

Rachel, if the switch is grayed out it means you do not have a license for the resource. La Biblia de las Americas is one of the resources we make available for free on the iPhone, even if you don't have a license, but you still need a license to download it. If there are books you have in Logos 4 and on the iPhone, but can't download on the iPhone, please let me know.

Thank you for the answer, Dave.  Could you tell me how to get that license then?
