Great work! This is really coming along nicely. Is there a way to create a new note file in the app, or must it be created on the desktop?

On my Acer Iconia Tab A500 with the Bible app (running Cyanogenmod 9, based on Android 4.0.4) note creation is working, however I am unable to create color highlights. I can alter the text, like all caps or underline, but it will not create a color highlight.  

Thanks for all your work!

Currently you cannot manually create or manage note documents from the Android apps.

Highlights and notes appear now in translations where they did not appear, but should have, before so that issue seems resolved.

Highlights still only appear in low light reading mode.  In standard color scheme highlights do not appear.

Here are the steps I performed to create a blue highlight:

1. Select some resource text
2. Press Highlight from the selection popup
3. Press Highlight from the All Styles section
4. Press the Blue Highlighter list option
5. Press the Done button

Note once perform the above steps creating additional blue highlights only requires steps 1 and 5 because the Blue Highligher is already selected or in the recent Styles section.

I select text and tap highlight, the page dims and "expands". Ten seconds later it crashes with "Unfortunately, Bible has stopped."

Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket running ICS.

I haven't found a way to get logs.

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.

Mine crashes whenever I open my default Bible which is NKJV. It doesn't crash when I open other translations such as ESV. I wondered if it was because I added a chronological reading plan to NKJV? Logos didn't crash when I open NKJV until I added the reading plan.

Mine is a Nook Color running 2.3.7 Android and Mod version is CyanogenMod-7.1.0.

It was running 2.0 Beta 3.

Same thing happened to me on my Android phone. running 2.3.3 Android. It's also running 2.0 Beta 3. It must be an issue relating with reading plan.

Great job!  All notes and highlighting now appear for me.  And, I LOVE the ability to create new notes and highlighting in the app.  No crashes on my devices yet.  Like others, I have a reading plan on my default bible (ESV).  But, that fact is not affecting the performance in any way.  For my devices, this is the best release to date.

I am using the Bible Android App on an Atrix (1st gen - 2.3.6 OS) and a Lenovo K1 (3.2.1 OS).

Thank you, much appreciated. Is there any plan to fix the Hebrew font issue soon?

This looks GREAT on my Transformer Prime! The timing for this update is perfect... I'll have all the tools I care most about on my tablet while on vacation this coming week.

We are actively researching the issue, but have not yet come to a solution.

I must have "many" notes/highlights.  Page turning for me is about 2 minutes per page turn.

Still no "menu button" on Asus Transformer Prime, build 4.0.3 using Bible.

Also,  am I correct in understanding that current notes/highlights in the PC version of Logos 4 cannot be edited on the mobile device, but they can be created and synced on a mobile device?  If so, then I can say that I have nothing more to say to our Android Developers except Job Well Done.
