Is it possible to use the libronixdls custom URL scheme to launch the Logos iPhone / iPad app to a specified book, chapter, and verse?  (If there's a developer in the house, I'm looking for a URL to pass to the UIApplication openURL: method.) 

I'm thinking that to open to 2 Tim 3:16, for example, there must be something in the general neighborhood of 

libronixdls://2+Timothy+3:16

I've tried various incantations along these and related lines, but no luck.  Can anyone point me the right direction? 

Thanks in advance!

The app does support handle a subset of libronixdls URIs but not unparsed Bible references.

Thanks, Dave.  I'm in a position to pre-parse the Bible references if that's what's required.   For example, I could turn "2 Timothy 3:16" into "55.3.16" or whatever libronixdls expects.   Perhaps you could give me a URL that would work, and I'll work backwards from there?  Thanks again.

See this blog post for some examples. You'll notice we account for apocryphal books in our numbering system.

Note that while the app handles these libronixdls links, this isn't an officially supported feature and may disappear in a future release. That said, I don't have any immediate plans to remove it. At some point in the future we may add support for logosref and logosres links, but there are a couple technical pieces missing right now.

Interesting stuff. I'm trying to link to specific resources (books) from a mindmap I made in another app (Mindmaple). The mindmap has nodes for various books I'd like to read this year. I've learned that I can use this command as a link to open my Logos library on my ipad - logosref://open or libronixdls://open. But I haven't yet been able to have it open a specific book. I've tried using the LLS by a resource (libronixdls:LLScode://open), but this doesn't work. It opens at the library as before. 

Is there any way to make a link to a specific resource on my ipad?

thanks in advance,

Russ Herald

Have you tried "copy location as URL" within the desktop app?

No, but thanks! Works lik a charm! The desktop gives met a different referent than what I see by the info button on my ipad. But I can use the LLS number just as well. So I've got logosres:29.64.18 to open to the last page opened for Peter Davids' commentary on James. again, thanks.

Just saw that if I use the share function to e-mail a link, that I also get the LLS code for the book, which I can then tag onto logosref:.
