Hello all. Though I have been using Logos for years, this is my first post, so forgive me for any ignorance I show here as a newcomer to the forum. I have seriously considered getting an iPad Pro, primarily as a Windows laptop replacement, until I read that it wasn’t possible to run Logos in iOS like the desktop MacOS and Windows, only in mobile format. So, I’ve attempted to read/search the forums (searching at the top of this forum page hasn’t working for me for some reason) to see what choices others have made but haven’t found much. So, my question is for those who run the Logos mobile app on an iPad or iPad Pro. Is it worth the price of the Pro for running the mobile app? It will also be used for preaching, primarily for notes but also for teaching, using PowerPoint, video, etc. I will definitely be using whatever I buy to replace my Samsung Galaxy Tab S that is 5 or 6 years old.  And just FYI, I use Logos primarily on a Windows laptop but also on a really slow iMac in my study at church. Don’t hesitate to ask for any other information/clarification. I hope this wasn’t too convoluted and appreciate your help and suggestions.

 although there is a strong group of users who would like to replace a computer with an iPad (speaking of logos), the mobile app is not a replacement for the desktop app. For logos purposes, there isn’t a reason to get an iPad Pro over a regular iPad.

I have an ipad pro & agree with JT. There's no benefit from the mobile format standpoint to get the pro over the standard ipad however, I'm sure the higher res screen would certainly help with the teaching/preaching from a visual perspective

Welcome to the forums, John. 

Depending on your Logos workflow on the desktop, the web app might be something that could work for you on an iPad. Check it out and see if it might do what you need.

At this time, in my opinion, there is little benefit for the Pro over the standard iPad other than the larger screen and smaller bezels for Logos use. 

In the future, I hope that Logos will allow us to run a more complete version on iPad, but at this time the iPad is not a replacement for a computer for Logos use. Hopefully this isn't the case forever.
