So I've paid the big bucks, got the Android Tablet and Logos, I'm sitting at the bible study and we go to the first passage, we read and discuss and then move to the next, and we do this for a bunch of passages...

  1. Now I want to go back to the second passage. Where's the list of recent passages or how do I move back and forth between the passages I've recently viewed?
  2. We're going through a list of about 20 passages (not single verses), how do I build a list of these verses so that I can refer to them quickly and easily both during this bible study time (build the list as I go along) and go back to it easily over the next few bible studies?

One way is via the History screen which can be accessed by long-pressing the Back button (on Android) or from the Main menu.

Thanks, I did not see that History option, didn't realize just how many options there were down hidden at the bottom of that menu that one needs to scroll to see.

I wish I had real buttons to do a back-button long press, that would be really handy, as it is, it is 5 screen touches just to get to a previous verse. That's pretty clunky.

Clunk-iferousness is in the eye of the beholder. The app, like most readers, provides a 'back' button, which, depending on your view, is either a single click, or 2 clicks (which, technically, is a hair better than a Paperwhite).

Alternative for your list of 20 passages, is to use the favorite feature, but that's already had a complaint of unnecessary clicks. Clunky!

I'd think Kindles's last few locations would be the best solution (not the over-whelming implimentation on the Logos desktop).

"I didn't know God made honky tonk angels."

Nice word 'Clunk-iferousness'!

Is there a way that I can make my History one of my screens? Then I could swipe to the side, see my history list and tap the verse from the list. Swipe and tap, that'd be slick and quick.
