I posted this as a response to another post but I thought this could merit its own post so apologies for double posting, but this one has more information.

Since the latest release which I installed today (January 31, 2019) I have found that the app is terribly unstable and easily gets into a state where it starts up then crashes before I can do anything.

I've reinstalled a number of times and the same thing happens.

The steps I take that cause this are as follows;

  • Launch a freshly installed Logos for Android and log in
  • Download ESV Bible and ESV Reformation Study Bible
  • Close the sample resource windows  that are open and open an ESV Bible
  • Go to the resource windows, split the window I have open and, in the bottom one, open an ESV Reformation Study Bible
  • I link these resource windows and go back to the page
  • So far so good....
  • I tap on Home, find my Reading Plan and tap Read Ahead
  • The ESV pane of in my reading window goes to Genesis 34, the lower pane shows a spinning circle to suggest it's trying to find the relevant page and boom, crashes out to the Launcher

  • When I try and relaunch the Logos app, it shows two spinning circles for a little while and then crashes out

I'm going to be trying other combinations of events and books to see if they are affected by this but I've tried installations from Google Play and Amazon and both do this.

This also happens when I try and launch the Audio version of the ESV. Crashes out when I start and then it won't start again without a reinstall (or a storage clearance).

Really frustrating. Does anybody have a workaround?

Can replicate opening Unseen Realm Audio....crash out, then on reopening, the app trys to reopen the audio, so crashes again....rinse and repeat.

Disabling wifi and then renaming MainStorage->Android-Data->Com.Logos.AndroidLogos->cache to something, then reopening the app allowed me to close the tab with the audio resource that was causing the problem.  After renaming the cache folder back, and reenabling wifi, all seems ok, no need to redownload all the resources again.

Thanks, that's a good workaround and it helps to know I don't have to keep reinstalling! It might also help the devs work out what's going on and it might be linked with the other issue I'm having with the study Bible.

The option I've taken for my Daily Driver is simply to revert to a previous version of Logos. However, I really like the new UI (kind of - what happened to 'Change Resource'?) so once this is fixed, I'll be all over it again.

If this is of any use, the latest version works fine on my tablet. So some version information to clarify;

Android phone latest version of Logos crashes; Huawei (don't judge me) P10 Android version 8.0.0

Android tablet latest version of Logos works fine; Huawei (don't judge me) MediaPad M3 Lite, Android version 7.0

That's brilliant, thanks very much :) 

Hopefully this will also address the first issue I have as well (since they both manifest similar symptoms I'm hoping they're related).

The response to this issue is very much appreciated Yes

Thanks

My Huawei Media Pad was functioning reasonably well except that multiple book covers were missing (most of them). Also many resources in my library could not be downloaded straight. My workaround was to open the resource online. Once it was opened online I could download it. Then suddenly one day the app crashed and continued to crash on launch. I reinstalled and it seemed the reinstall cured the missing book covers. Now however as I was re-downloading resources the app crashed again. Specifically it crashed when downloading "Encountering John". Incidentally, this is one of the resources that I had to open online before before I could download it.  It just fails to launch now. Completely unusable. It is still working on my Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

I have again reinstalled the app. It crashed again when downloading books but thankfully this time it launched again. However, multiple resources previously downloaded are now missing licences and so can no longer be accessed either online or through download.
