The resources available to download through either application, based on the resources we own, seem to download to their own unique directories. Why not have the Faithlife  App and the Logos App share the same downloaded resources directory?

Peace to you,Ryan!                        and ..               Always Joy in the Lord!                          *smile*

           I'm not sure I understand what you mean. For example, here are the 4 main resources "perched" in my Logos4 Library, ready to go.

I also have them available on my iPad2 with my Faithlife App and my Logos App.  They are also available when I sign in to Biblia.com

Philippians 4:  4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. 5 Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand..........

Ryan is talking about the resource files not being shared between the apps and so each iPad app (Logos, Vyrso, Faithlife) has it's own "file system".  The problem is that iPad/Apple forces you to have to sandbox the data so it cannot be shared between applications.  Mostly it's a positive thing, but in this case it works against applications that can share data that they want to store locally. 

I'm sure someone with more expertise can speak on this, but it's a limitation of the OS rather than the applications.

Thanks,
Mike

Is this limitation in all Mobile OS's or only Apple?

only iOS , on android app can access any directory on External Card, so resources could be shared, however, find it nice my vyrso/faithlife books and study books can be seperate.
