when will you have a fix for the Bible Reading Plan interface for IPhone or IPad?

Delbert - First, welcome to the forums!

What do you mean by "fix for the Bible Reading Plan interface"? If you mean syncing issues, the short answer to your question is "I don't know, but hopefully soon-ish." Logos is currently working on a new sync infrastructure. Currently, they are beta testing 4.5 which will bring the necessary changes to allow for highlighting and notes on the mobile app. We have been told that after 4.5 rolls out, that they will work on reading plans. The only timeline we were given was something along the lines of "hopefully by the new year," but I think that is unrealistic at this time. There is a chance that 4.5 will go live by the end of the year, so maybe reading plans won't be too far behind.

If you meant something else in your question, please rephrase and ask again.Smile

The iPhone/iPad forum has => Reading plan sync status that was posted by a Logos developer on 26 Oct 2011:

Dave Dunkin:

We are aware of problems with reading plans syncing between iOS and Logos Mac/Windows. The sync problems are caused by the way data is synced between iOS and the desktop apps; it doesn't scale to the amount of data we are now processing. We have been in the process of rearchitecting and reimplementing the way we sync data for about a year so that we can handle our new scalability requirements. We are rolling out these changes, often referred to as Sync v2, over time. Logos Desktop 4.3 used Sync v2 for some things. Logos 4.5 will use it for more, but is not currently spec'd to include reading plans.

 

We are aiming to use Sync v2 for reading plans by the end of the year.

 

I recognize that these problems are a source of frustration. I feel bad about that. Our team is working very hard to make it right. For those of you willing to stick it out with us, I appreciate your graciousness. For those of you who are unable to use our tool because of this, I hope we can win you back in the near future.

 

Dave

Hoping for stable Logos 4.5 release with corresponding mobile app updates so Sync v2 can reliably sync reading plans across platforms quickly.

Doing data replication well across platforms is technically challenging, which is compounded by customer base growing so more Logos users want their reading plans to sync quickly.  By way of an analogy, Sync v2 should be similar to adding traffic lanes to congested highways.
