  • How do you create a daly devotion or a reading plan on Android?
    Didn't think this was implemented yet, if it is how?

    Gabe, I will load this on my TouchPad when I get home from work and test it out. There is no mention of the issue some are having with highlighted passages not showing in normal mode. Has this been fixed? We haven't heard from Logos on this bug.

    Where do we find this Android Suite on our phones? On the Play Store or in our browser?

    By the way, I haven't been able to utilize my highlights, notes, etc. on my android yet after receiving my email stating I would be able to.

    Hi Donna - and welcome to the forums

    Donna Groskopf:
    Where do we find this Android Suite on our phones? On the Play Store or in our browser?

    This beta is available through the browser - links as per the first post in this thread

    Donna Groskopf:

    This is not available until version 2 - either through this beta or when the stable release becomes available through the store.

    Hope this helps

    I downloaded this beta android suite 2.0.6 on my phone and I like it now that I can put all my markings and highlights that I do on my laptop version, but I lost all the bibles and books that I had previously, because it deleted the app, logos that I had previously on my phone. Why did it delete everything but the one bible I had been using? Where are all the other bibles and books I had on here?

    if this is the first install of 2.0 beta then sadly you will have to re download, but it kept mine when I changed from 2.05 to 2.06

    I went to reinstall it and it says in the Google Play that it's already installed, but all I can find is my Bible I use all the time on Logos. What do I do?

    Nice update, but still doesn't have a reading mode like all the other great reading apps in which the bottom status bar is dimmed (in Android 3+ the icons become three faint dots) - this feature is essential for low light reading.

    DominicM:

    How do you create a daly devotion or a reading plan on Android? 

    Didn't think this was implemented yet, if it is how?

    The only reading plan you can create from the device is a "Read the bible in a year" but you can add reading plans that you created on the desktop. Thus the need to be signed in for reading plans.

    For devotions you need to be signed in with at least a free account in order to have access to a daily devotional resource (Morning and Evening). If you sign up for the Faithlife Study Bible you'll also have access to Connect the Testaments: A daily devotional. If you've purchased other devotional resources those show up and can be added to the devotions section.

    Well updated on my tablet and still can only see highlighters in low light mode. Underlinings, etc still show in normal. Team Logos this bug has been reported multiple times over many releases but is not on known issues. Is there a way to fix it?

    Works well for the most part on my Toshiba Thrive but many of my notes come up as "not available"

    Crashing on my Kindle Fire when I switch from my default Bible (NASB) in the top window to any other book. The NASB is the version I have been marking so there are a lot of highlights. I can switch to any other book in the bottom window with no problem.

    After updating, I could not find a history (book, that is), home page,  the daily devotional is gone and (strictly in my opinion only) the interface is one of the worst I have seen for a smartphone.  On a screen this small, simplicity is needed and the new interface is not it. 

    Yes, I like the highlighting visibility, but make it so you don't have to bounce/swipe around just to get to a single location. 

    Before: 1 button and 1 soft button and you were there.  Now: 1 button (Oops, that takes you back a screen), 1 button (Oops, that switches screens, but doesn't get you where you want.), 1 swipe (Opens a page that has 4 of the 6 buttons you want, but the two that are missing are the ones you need.), 1 swipe (You are back at square one.)  Later you find that there is no home page anymore.  Ah well....   

    I will still keep the app on the phone for access (hopefully) to books in the library and word study, but no longer for Bible reference or devotional. Sad

    I stand corrected on finding the history.  Apparently the tiny little buttons that are in the upper right can get you to the book history page.  Otherwise, the necessary actions needed to navigate make it much less user friendly than the previous version.

    Those tiny buttons, while clickable, are really intended as merely an indicator of which page you are on. You can use a swiping gesture to move between the five different pages and access your information quickly. You are correct that there is no longer a home page, but the devotions content and the news content are both still accessible in the side panel.

    If you are specifically interested in getting to your history quickly, this can be accomplished in one long-press of the back button.

    since i got Bible2.0.5 & now with Bible 2.0.6 (build 50) i still can't get my devotions to load (just a spinny thing) i just want to get my daily reading plan like i had with the earlier version

    i am logged into my account & when i read the passage that is part of my reading plan it shows it with the scripture text & lets me click done but doesn't import that info to logos on my PC & won't show anything on the devotions section

    so: Bible 2.0.6 (build 50), Samsung Galaxy 4G, Android 2.2.1

    Perhaps I should have been more specific.  I understand they are not "clickable" buttons, but the interface is small and confusing.  Why not just put arrows?

    The devotionals are easy to find, but not to include in your daily use as they do not appear on the screen with the news as they did.

    The history I was referring to (and did state it in my previous message) is the "book" history.  There are times when I want to jump between two references and this can be done, but again it takes several steps when it used to just take two.

    I am not saying this is a complete bust, but that this upgrade has complicated use rather than making it simpler or keeping it at the same level of complexity. Having a lot of features is great, but the average user will not use most of the features on any given program if the interface is not user friendly.  

    Please understand I am trying to be constructive in my assessment of this change in the program.  The Android platform is great for certain functions, but can't take the place of the PC for completeness (imagine what a word study analysis would look like on the Android).

    Therefore, it seems plausible that keeping with ease of use, even in the face of not putting every feature on the smartphone app would make sense.

    Just my .02 worth.
