Just an excerpt most relevant to Logos:

I guess the Logos community might post different numbers if polled.

Might?  

Well maybe.  Despite all of the tech around me, I still prefer my leather bible in my hands for reading.

The elephant sitting in the middle of the room, is that you can't easily glue the books of the Bible tabs on your iPad.  Plus if you cut into it to hide the tabs, it makes a complete mess.

Every since a child I wondered how the tab cutting machine knew where each book was?

Back to the thread, notice the K-J-V is the 'fastest growing' and 'most popular' version. That's immensely interesting (I'm referring to the far more sophisticated users' preference for the Evangelical Standard Version).

Who needs glued books of the Bible tabs when you've got these? (Android screenshot, but I'm sure iPad is similar.)

Obviously you don't have bifocals with the tiny glasses that are in style these days!  

We just installed a roll-around large magnifying glass in our kitchen.  Confuses our dog.

But I WILL say the Laridian one is really hard to spot. My favorite (Logos/Laridian/??) is 'Je' when there's plenty of room for 'Jer'.  Or 'So' there is.

Well when the Android version uses an invisible format for the deuterocanonicals I still need to rely on the stick-ons.Zip it!

That's only because I have chosen TNIV as my preferred Bible for reading. If I had opened NRSVCE I'm sure it would have shown the deuterocanonical tabs. Can't test it right now because my Android phone is in the middle of trying to download my catalog and for some reason is taking forever, so I have no resources available in my library on it right now. Uggh!

EDIT: It finally finished downloading my catalog, 7 minutes later. Yikes! And yes, I can confirm that the deuterocanonical tabs are there in versions of the Bible that have them:

I didn't see the format preference infographic in the link you posted.  Did they remove it when the "haters" were changed into "skeptics"?  (see the article intro)

Well, at least they didn't take away the haters.  Pretty soon the Christians wouldn't have enemies to love.
