I set my wife up with Logos 8 Basic on her Android tablet and on her PC. However, the PC app only shows around 40 resources in the library, whereas the mobile app shows around 100. In particular, the mobile app gives access to many more Bible translations? Have I missed something in installing the PC app?

Also, in the mobile app, is there any automatic way to search the Lexham English Bible on Strong's numbers, other than manually using the <GreekStrong's G????> syntax (which does work, but is too technical for my wife)? In the desktop app I just right click on a word, choose the Strong's number and the Search This Resource option, and I get a list of verses containing the Greek word. In the mobile app, when I long-press a word and choose Info, I see the Strong's number, but I can't choose it to search on it. I can go to the Bible Word Study panel, but it only gives examples of verses, not a complete list. How would I do this in the mobile app? Thanks

No. The mobile apps have "free to use, not own or download" resources. If you want to download them or have access on desktop, you will need to purchase them.

I figured. Thanks.

Still wondering about searching on Strong's numbers in the mobile app though.

I don’t use those features. It would be best to ask in the mobile forum. https://community.logos.com/forums/150.aspx
