The Logos Android team is pleased to announce the 1.0 beta 2 versions of the Android apps.

Installing or updating to 1.0 Beta 2

If you have 1.0 Beta 1 installed and your update channel is configured to beta the new version should download automatically. Once downloaded you will get a system notification that a new version of the app is ready to install. Tapping on that notification will open the installer.

You can also immediately install or upgrade the app using the following links:

New

  • Dialog  to begin download when update is available
  • Ability to cancel downloads in Resource Info

Improved

  • Library catalog update performance
  • Reading view styling
  • Reading plan/devotional styling
  • Bible word lookup styling
  • Table Of Contents/Verse Map tab styling
  • Versemap lowlight mode styling
  • Other minor style improvements

Fixed

  • Extra white space in reading view on Android 4.0 devices
  • Downloadable books sometimes missing the download button in Resource Info
  • Biblia verse navigation failed when offline
  • Faithlife homepage header obscured on tablet devices with a top notification bar
  • Some books missing cover images in library catalog
  • Keyboard would popup when opening About
  • Other bug fixes and crash reports

FYI:

In my case, using the beta update channel (as opposed to the links), I had to exit the app to run the downloaded update. Otherwise, I got a "parse error".

I changed the channel to beta but did not receive any notification for beta 2 despite closing and opening the app. I had use the download link instead.

Samsung Galaxy S, Android 2.3

    On my HTC Desire phone, setting the Logos app channel to beta automatically triggered the download.

    Apologies I wasn't specific enough

    The auto-download worked for the Logos app but not the Vyrso one.

    I had to uninstall Logos for the first 1.0 beta so I'm betting you have to do the same. I haven't tried yet but you might want to.

    Kenneth,

    If you have previously installed Logos/Biblia/Vyrso from the Amazon store, you must first uninstall the older version(s) of Logos software before the newer versions can be installed from the Logos download sites.  The Amazon store changes the signature of the application making an update incompatible.  This isn't the case with the Google Play store (but that fact doesn't help Kindle Fire users like yourself).

    DominicM - First off, thanks for the feedback.

    Lowlight theme implies dark background on light text. In your case the text does not appear to be bright enough to contrast with the background. What type of Android device are you using? I have a Motorola Triumph (Android 2.2) and the text on the buttons appears brighter than in your screenshot.

    I just pulled down all three and Biblia is the Spanish version for some reason.  As much as I need to and would like to brush up on my Spanish, I'd prefer the English version.  Is there a problem with the link or it is something on my device?

    Hi Mark

    Mark Davis:

    The Biblia app is in Spanish

    For English you want either the Logos app or Vyrso.

    LOL.  OK, that makes sense.  I guess I was thinking of the biblia.com site and that this was some sort of new front end to it or something.  Thanks.

    Deleting app version 0.9.4 and installing the Beta worked great.  Now I get a messaging telling me there is an update, but it is the 0.9.4

    version.

    Will I need to delete the old beta version to install the new beta version whenever it becomes available?  If so that will limit the number of books I download for off line reading.

    Probably because you are on the stable update channel. Go to About, scroll down if necessary, and change the Update Channel to beta (you'll have to change it back to stable when version 1 is officially released).
