  • Logos runs automatically on my Android 6.0 cell phone

    My Logos app runs automatically on my Android 6.0 cell phone any time I turn it on. I only use the App for an hour on Sundays so it doesn't need to be running all the time. Is there a way to stop the Logos app from starting itself automatically? Alternatively, is there some way to shutdown the app from within itself?

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"] Do you really think Logos customers would be happy if Bob or Bradley said, "We'll reduce the time it takes to index to almost nothing, but you won't be able to do a case-sensitive search, rank searches, search for any reference types (e.g. Louw-Nida numbers), do word-stemming, specify specific proximity, search for words in

    [quote user="Mark Barnes"] OK, I'm now running WordSearch basic. There is indexing when you install books (check your status bar), but it's very quick, and doesn't use much CPU. 12 resources took 60 seconds to index.

    [quote] I have a challenge for you. I'm going to give you two binary trees, and you can pretend that they're two indexes. Can you show the simplicity of merging? I do not believe you can do it by simply connecting the entire new index at the appropriate place in the original/master index. Tree 1 (Master Index): 50 / \ 10 80 / \ / \ 1 30 70 90 Tree 2

    Okay as long as I'm stirring up trouble, let me give a simple, concrete, non-technical example of what I'm talking about. It's still Friday, and every Friday WordSearch gives a free book. So just a few minutes ago I ordered my free book. When I opened WordSearch it automatically downloaded and installed the book. That took about 10 seconds. Then I watched

    Hi George: [quote user="George Somsel"] Can't we simply assume that Logos knows what it's doing and let it go at that? [/quote] I'm afraid Pandora's box is open now. There's no way we're going to get all the snakes back inside! Doug

    Hi William: You said, "I have a challenge for you." Well, I admit your challenge is an interesting one, but if WordSearch didn't solve their indexing problem with binary trees, how did they do it? For what it's worth I brought this problem to the attention of Logos Support only to be referred to this forum. Now I seemed to have stirred up some emotions

    Hi David Ames, Here's my solution to your problem -- for what it's worth. Download a copy of WinPatrol from http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html . Fire it up and look in the Startup tab for Logos4Indexer.exe and disable it. (It doesn't do any good to remove it. It just comes back.) Now go find Logos4Indexer.exe on your hard drive and make a desktop

  • Re: Logos 6 Best Feature: NO INDEXING !!!!!!!!!!

    The amount of indexing you describe goes way beyond anything I need. When I do a search, I usually limit the search to just a few Bibles or other books because I don't want a boat load of hits -- just a bucket full. :-)

  • Re: Logos 6 Best Feature: NO INDEXING !!!!!!!!!!

    Actually WordSearch does have reverse interlinears. I own two of them. The difference is that the WordSearch reverse interlinears are fixed. That is, the index for that individual book should not need to be rebuilt unless the book is revised. The beauty of a binary tree index is that the index for each book can be generated at the source (Logos) and

  • Re: Logos 6 Best Feature: NO INDEXING !!!!!!!!!!

    My Logos library is currently showing 1799 items. My WordSearch library is closer to 1710. Logos can index for several hours. WordSearch used to index for 30 minutes or so until the current version. I don't think I've had to do a full rebuild of the index since WordSearch 10.6 came out. This is the version that just added seven books without any indexing

  • Re: Logos 6 Best Feature: NO INDEXING !!!!!!!!!!

    I haven't created a binary tree in a few years, but there was never any effort required to combine (merge) two indexes. It was simply a matter of connecting the entire new index (a new book's index) at the appropriate place in the master index. As far as the WordSearch index is concerned. The fact that they've finally discovered the binary tree is a

  • Re: Logos 6 Best Feature: NO INDEXING !!!!!!!!!!

    The problem is that every time Logos does an "update" (which for me is just about every time I fire up the program) it wants to re-index whether I've bought any new books or not.

  • Re: Logos 6 Best Feature: NO INDEXING !!!!!!!!!!

    I bought seven new WordSearch books yesterday and added them to my library of over 1700 books. There was no indexing! This is a new feature with the latest WordSearch (which I got for free). Apparently WordSearch has discovered the Binary Tree Index. If this sounds like Geek Speak, check out Wikipedia; they have a very understandable article on the

  • Re: Unannounced Price Change

    Hi Dave, I kinda understand what you're saying. When I click on the word "discount" on the upgrade page a bubble pops up saying that my discount is 31% (exactly what I had calculated). So then when Logos gives me credit for the books I already own, that credit would make the discount off the retail price seem that much larger. There's one thing I understand

  • Re: Unannounced Price Change

    I'm glad you brought up the topic of discount percentages. Last week when the discount was 35% (to the best of my recollection), computing that discount against the retail price produced a discounted price of approximately $3200, and this was the price the web page was offering me. This week it's a different story. The web page is offering me 25% off

  • Unannounced Price Change

    I was on the Logos web site last week comparing prices of base packages that would upgrade me to Logos 5. At that time the web site was offering me 35% off the Portfolio package which made my price approximately $3200. This week the same web page is offering me a 25% discount and my price is approximately $3400. I called and talked to a salesman who

    Hi Andy, Using your link helped, but the page was still very confusing. At first blush it looked like I would be paying $294 for the "Starter" edition. But when I pulled the slider bar all the way to the bottom and then back up again an amazing thing happened. A new column appeared labeled "Your Price". So it turned out that my price for a "Starter

  • Logos 5 Base Packages

    I'm more than a little disappointed in the new Logos 5 base packages. In the old scheme of things I had spent my way up to the Leader level, and was considering moving up to Scholar Gold. Now, under the new system, I find that I must spend $250 just to become a "Beginner". It's a real slap in the face if you ask me. Doug Witmer
