I really need/want Biblia to display interlinears correctly Big Smile

Since there is no Windows Phone app for Logos (yet) I have to use Biblia.com to view my library when I'm mobile. However, none of the interlinears work there! Please, either come out with Logos for Windows Phone 7, or make the Biblia site more functional.

Thanks!

There's technical issues with making the interlinears work properly on the web. If you search, you'll find forum discussions addressing this problem. There are a few bible web sites with interlinears which you might want to use in the meantime.

Yes, I have read about the issues. That is why Logos needs to come out with software for Windows Phone 7 that addresses these issues and more. Biblia.com mobile is only good for reading, and then it is very basic - it utterly fails for any sort of searching or Greek/Hebrew usage. Try searching a Greek lexicon using Biblia, and you'll see what I mean.

Logos 4 is written using the Microsoft.Net WPF framework, which is very similar to Microsoft's Silverlight framework, the OS platform of Windows Phone 7. I would think if any port were do-able, it would be the port from WPF to Silverlight.

Silverlight is actually a subset of WPF, and given some of the features it does not support it's quite possible this would be a bigger conversion than one would think given both are under the Microsoft roof. Only Logos could comment on that.

You might be right, but I can't imagine it would be harder than creating a whole new version from scratch for the Linux-based Android, or the who-knows-what based iPhone.
