If you like it, please feel free to give it a 5-star rating and a positive review.

If you don't like it, I think you should take time to see future updates before rushing into a rating or review. :-)

I wish... but my church is in the process of building a new facility & sold our building to another church. They're gracious enough to let us continue meeting there, albeit in the afternoons... so, I won't be at church until 2pm (for prayer mtg & then services following)

Otherwise, yeah... I'd be at church... even then, since Walmart is 24 hrs, I'd probably still swing by there before church LOL

The iTunes Store description includes the statement "Users of the desktop version of Logos Bible Software 4 get access to much of their library through this mobile application" 

 

Is the "4" a typo?

Ok, that makes sense, would you pick me one up while you're there?

[insert scream of frustration]

[rant begin]How can you "be at church," or (another pet peeve) "go to church?" You are either a member of a church, or you attend the worship service(s) of a church. But the church isn't a place, or an event, it's a fellowship (body) of believers. I'm afraid our word usage often betrays our assumption that 'church' is a weekly event, rather than a body of believers, brought together by Jesus for worship and discipleship.[/rant]

I don't think so... I think it means that version 4 is right around the corner... that could be what their Twitter countdown is for :-)

Mmm. This makes me think that Mac users will have to wait a bit longer for the same functionality...I hope not.

Obviously it wouldn't be right to award 5 stars on the basis of future potential and not what has already been achieved Devil

But it really is a great app especially for version 1.0, passage guide with commentaries on my phone - brilliant!

I guess the obvious question is - while some of the features obviously require net access, will future updates bring the ability to download bibles or other books to the phone itself for offline reading? Otherwise if eg you're on a plane, the app becomes unusable...

Indeed! I was really hoping to use this on my iPod Touch while at work but it seems its limited to while on WiFi only. Offline access to a selection of books is a must.

No rest for the weary... :-)

Yes, we did realize this would be the first question. And offline access is in our plans. 

But a combination of issues -- the amount of content, the desire to not have to charge you twice (at the behest of either the publisher or Apple), and some technical concerns -- caused us to put this off.

(It's not hard to store your books on the iPhone. It's hard to implement our search engine, data type comparison system, data type parsing/rendering, cross-library searching for Guides, text comparison algorithm, etc. on the iPhone. We'll get there, but we thought you'd be happy to get some basic reading and searching going first. By offloading to the server -- where we can share code we built for the desktop app -- we can offer a lot more power.)

Also, keep in mind that some users have literally gigabytes of content, and this Internet-based solution allows you to work with every bit of it that publishers allow (we're still securing rights -- the list will change constantly) without having to explicitly download or manage the resources.

Thanks Bob,

I'm glad to hear it's still in the pipeline Smile

That's all perfectly understandable and I am very happy to be able to use what's possible already while development continues...

Sadly, Bob, offline access is the one thing that will get this to a 5 star. Until then it is not going to be.  For those of us with either a touch or an iPhone in an AT&T handicapped area (Edge only for me) make this nearly useless away from home or my church's building or wifi hot spots.
