Will the Vyrso app be submitted to the Amazon Android App Store to load on the Fire or will one be abel to load the app from other source.

If I can get Vyrso or Logos app on the Kindle Fire I will be purchasing one.

You are not alone - though there have been those who have purchased the Fire, many of us are waiting to see how well it handles the Vyrso or LOGOS apps.

Carl - 

If your decision to purchase a fire is based upon a Logos or Vryso app, I would wait to buy one. Currently the Andriod app requires a sd slot - the fire does not have one. Also, there is no guarantee that Amazon would let a competitor in their app store.

I got my Kindle Fire yesterday.  It will not allow you to load either the Logos or Vyrso App.  I don't think this is a hardware issue.  Amazon just locked the Fire down to their bookstore. Needless to say, I sent it back.

From http://community.logos.com/forums/p/39349/305618.aspx#305618 it looks as though it is possible.

I love Kindle to read books and would like to have it work like a Kindle - I like to highlight and then get on the desktop and see the book with highlights - I highlight to pull pieces into my sermon. Is Logos working to that end?

Hi Greg

Greg Crocker:

Logos is working on the ability to share highlights (and notes) between desktop and mobile apps.

It is dependent on Logos 4.5 (which is currently in beta) which is delivering a new synchronisation framework (known as Sync 2). Once this is rolled up, there will need to be an update to the mobile apps so that they can participate in this.

We don't have timescales for this but there have been hints that 4.5 should be released to the stable channel by the end of this year.

Peace, Greg!                                and                  Always Joy in the Lord.

                 I don't have any reader at all.          Also, no smart phone.  I do have broadband cable at home for my Logos 4 and could possibly go to a free Wi-Fi place if I needed that.

My Point:          If my almost-perfect daughter would give me a Kindle Fire for Christmas OR a Keyboard Kindle OR

Kindle DX, Free 3G, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 9.7" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology [Includes USB Cable for Charging. For International Shipment]

               How could, then, I get my Logos and Vryso books onto the reader since I do not have a subscription to any so-called smart services.

                        Greg, (or any other kind soul!) Thanks for taking a long at this!    *smile*

Milford - All of these devices have, at a minimum, a wifi card built in. You would need to have a wifi connection in your home, church, business, etc. These devices can also be used "offline," although their functionality may be impaired.

Milford, Biblia.com enables you to read Logos and Vyrso books on 3G, tho it has truncated at least some of the chapters of one I am reading.  I tend to use my Kindle mainly for non-logos books, from Gutenberg or archive.org mostly.  I have converted Logos books to A6 pdf, which I can read comfortABLY ON kINDLE, BUT IT'S A LOT OF HASSLE.  You can copy things from PC to Kindle via USB.

Alabama and Nicky!   *smile*  Thanks for your responses!    Indeed!   And Peace and Joy in the Lord!

              (Alabama, I was thinking of you when I was reading the sports page this morning and saw an article re. LSU and The Crimson Tide.  Hope you get to have that game this year!)

         To make my point more clearly.  I have a vast Logos Library, have been using Logos for over 17 years!  I have a great desktop setup – a strong i7 computer – and I do my “heavy” work there.  All my theological studies.  All my Greek and Hebrew studies, etc., in correlation with hundreds of other theological and study files I have on my home computer.

           What I’m looking for is essentially just a “reader.”   Lots of times I am in a “waiting mode.”  (For my wife, for my doctor or dentist, in various other ways.)

               I have, for example, the Harvard Classics and many other interesting books in my library that are just for reading, including a number of Vvrso books.  All I want to do is to have a very large selection of my Logos Resources on a Reader and then to peruse them in my leisure times.  It’s not a lot of fun to sit in from of my monitor just to read. 

          Therefore, I need a reader that can hold a few G’s of material.  When I want a particular resource, I want it to be available.  I need a way to get my resources to my reader.  If Kindle does this, great!  (Thanks, Nicky, USB is fine!) *smile*      However, sometimes I can be very patient, and might ask my daughter to put the money aside for me and then put this on top of my wish list (for my wife, children, and grandchildren) to eventually get an I-Pad2, installing my own Wi-Fi network here at home.  Thus, I could get the weather and a host of other things.  But, if the Kindle worked well, I could start with that now!  Now!  Now!  Now!          *smile*

           Either with the Kindle or something more expensive, I would like to put various study documents and .pdf documents also onto my reader for meditation and deeper study.  For that, as I read various “threads” I think I might need more than a Kindle.  That’s why I’m posting this important post for me hoping that some of my Logos Forums brothers and sisters might assist me with a few jewels of wisdom and knowledge!

The Kindle Fire does handle a variety of documents - I've only tried PDF's thus far ... but I am going slowly because it is touch screen and I have inherited my great-grandfather's hand size.

I have Vyrso loaded on my Fire. But I find that it (and the Logos app) are not much use to me if I cannot use my collections. It is hard to find what you want or browse through 1000+ books/resources.

You can cut and paste into a word doc and email to your kindle then you will have a book that automaticly formats to fit the kindle. you will be able to change font size without changing the size of page. I do this all the time and it works great.

have you tried using a stylus?  I find that simplifies  matters with iPad, but doesn't help much with touchscreen tablet

Nicky - I am confused... an iPad is a touchscreen tablet. Are you using a stylus? Does it help?

Alabama, they make soft tipped stylus especially for touch based tablets. Having a soft tip basically simulates a finger tip. A regular pointed tip stylus won't work I don't believe, but I have never tried for fear of scratching the screen. The price ranges from 10-30 dollars.  My wife won't use our iPad without one, she loves her stylus.

Thanks jtondee - I knew that you could get them, but I have not used one. I think that I would like one for writing... everything else is fine for me. Do you know which brand she uses?

The reason I asked the question is because nicky's statement seemed contradictory... a stylus "simplifies matters with iPad" yet "doesn't help much with touchscreen tablet." I am sure that was not what was meant, hence the follow up question.

I know you can do this, but is there a way around the 100 page limit that Logos puts on books? I want to copy a whole book and send it to my e-ink Kindle. I don't want to go to Biblia; I want to open a book and read it.
