I am not quite sure what you are asking... This forum is intended for questions directly related to the mobile apps. Are you a mobile only user? Questions about resources are typically asked in the "general" forum. I can take your question at least three ways:

  • "How do I find book X in the mobile app which I have already purchased"? 
  • "Where do I go to purchase book X?" 
  • "Which book(s) do you recommend?"

Which did you mean? If the question isn't directly related to the mobile app, this thread may be moved to the appropriate forum.

Are you asking if these books can be viewed on you mobile device?  All these books should be accessible on your mobile device (though not ALL books are accessible, a vast majority are) if you have downloaded the Vyrso or Logos Bible! app.

PS: If you were looking for the concise Matthew Henry's here is the link: https://www.logos.com/product/751/matthew-henrys-concise-commentary

Yes I'm using the Logos mobile iPhone app... And my question is 2 fold

1.where and to find theses resources using the mobile app.

2.some resources say I cannot download and are only available online because it's not part of my library , how and or where can I add them to my library for use offline. (2 books are the summarized bible NT / OT by Brooks Kieth)

Have you purchased the resources you wish to access offline?

Brad

You need to visit the web site Logos.com to purchase resources.

Before buying check the details of the books to make sure that they are available for use on a mobile.

Once you have purchased the resources you want to use then they will appear in your library.

Providing you have an internet connection on your phone you will be able to either read the material online or, optionally, download the resource to your phone for offline reading.

...well, mostly. Only that is what you should do for all resources. 

Due to Apple's policies, 15% of any "in app" purchase goes to Apple. Because of this, you typically can't buy Kindle books in the kindle app, nor Logos books in the Logos app... But Faithlife DOES have a small library of books to purchase "in-app." It would be preferable, however, to purchase directly through Faithlife. I love all things Apple, but they don't need my charity.

I don't think that a 15% cut of a purchase price is unreasonable when you consider the alternative for most businesses. Apple maintain the shop front, gather the users, and provide an efficient marketing method that millions have access to. For Faithlife this is expensive because they have already carried the overheads of maintaining the online infrastructure themselves but not everyone has and the App store has provided a business opportunity for many folk.

I don't think that Apple deserve charity but they do deserve to earn a return, sometimes when we harvest too close to the edge of the field, or go over our vines twice we are not robbing the poor but doing our bit ensure that poverty is a possibility. I believe that the rush to the biggest discount, the cheapest price, the ignoring of quality and the acceptance disposability are serious problems for our society.

Look at the lands where haggling and bargaining are expected customs! Do you see wealth and sustainability?

So Apple won't turn a hair at the likes Faithlife and even the giant Amazon for their method of doing business but I don't consider the 15% charity it is just the price of doing business... and business deserves a fair return.

I don't think it is unreasonable either. I just prefer to give the 15% to FL (who can use the funds) rather than Apple (who has billions they don't know what to do with).

I, sort of agree with you there Alabama - it just that I feel that if I put my money FL's way they will know what they want to do with it  - and what they will want to do with it is produce a search panel just to count the number of dots over a vav in Isaiah while turning a blind eye to the nonsense that is the Reading Plan and singularly ignore the reams of misplaced links in Paul and the Faithfulness of God that I have reported.

Some spend their money, some spend it on the wrong thing, some save for a rainy day who am I to judge -- apart from the matter of the reading plan and the misplaced links that is.

The LEB is owned by Faithlife and I believe the audiobook is free.

Great news Brad and thanks for letting us know.

Even though Alabama hijacked the thread for pushing his own agenda ( I would never do a thing like that) we were hoping that our advice had been useful.

Once again welcome to the community of Logos 'Users' (bible study should be habitual). There are many here ready and willing to help - not only for your sake but because we learn by helping.

Don't be a stranger and don't struggle on your own for more than a few minutes.

I'm running into a problem getting the menu to pop up on my Itouch. I found how to get it pop up to download books on my iPad. But it's not working the same way on the Itouch.

Please create a new thread and explain your issue clearly. Provide appropriate details (i.e. what version of iOS? What version of the app? Screenshots?)

The LEB audio is indeed free but the audio media only covers the New Testament.
