If you use Rainmeter on Windows, here is a very primitive desktop widget to show the verse of the day and link to the VotD on bible.faithlife.com. You can change the size to your taste if you Edit the config and change the Width variable.

Possible additions coming later: I'd like to add some buttons to it to enable other features like Open in Logos or something. I'd also like to do another variation that just displays the text of the verse on the desktop and loads the artwork on hover. I wish I could grab excerpts like the old homepage to put in a widget. Maybe they'll add an api to app.logos some day....

  • Download & Install Rainmeter
  • Download the Verse of the Day skin: 7506.FaithlifeVotD_0.1.8.zip
  • Extract the skin from the zip archive and double click on it to install it.
  • Run and open Rainmeter from the Windows system tray.
  • On the Skins tab, navigate to and select: Faithlife \ VotD \ VotD.ini
  • Click the "Load" button at the top right side.
  • On your desktop drag it to the position you want.
