According to the library viewer, I can set books to download to web reader on Windows. Does anyone know what this means?

Mark:

At first I thought it might be the Win8 app (on the non-desktop side). But I can't get that to replicate on my setup. Do you see this in your devices at your profile page at Logos.com?

Wouldn't it be neat if this was some kind of first step in syncing PBs via the web, and eventually mobile devices?

I see it - at first I associatiated it with biblia.com but this has no local resources. So, no idea.

I see it

How many mobile apps do you have deployed?

It looks as though Mark just has the Bible app deployed.

I have four of the apps and wonder whether this is "squeezing out" reference to the web reader

I tested your theory by installing Verbum: it doesn't crowd out the Web Reader:

As much as I wished this to be the start for a PB sharing service, it seems not to be: the Web reader download appears on Logos-produced books and Vyrso eBooks, but not on edition:user

I'm using Chrome as my browser, and google has a feature for offline reading - maybe Logos pushes the biblia.com content out to this feature (and thus would allow users to read their books without an app and without internet connection).

I have Chrome as my default browser, and not seeing it next to Lexham or Vyrso titles. 

How do you activate the offline feature. Not seeing it in settings.

I thought I had a link in my post above, but upon checking it was gone, so I edited it in:

It seems you'd need the Google Play Books app. However, I don't have that installed on my machine and probably won't since it requires a google id and so far I've evaded that one.

This relates to books purchased via Google Play. It sounds like Logos might be thinking of something similar, but it won't be this.

I now have two tick boxes for the web reader.

The "Web reader" line is coming from Biblia.com; the ability to (de)select resources for download to it in the desktop app is a bug (it shouldn't be appearing in the list).

Sounds good. HTML5 web storage? Is it really Windows only?
