    Note that there has been an app in the store for several weeks that has used this method. This is much more than an announcement of intent.

    Well, Microsoft just announced that you can now write Windows apps (any device) using Android Java/C++ or Objective C. This could be interesting.

    [quote user="Joseph Hall"] I'm getting sad now. I'm looking forward to a Windows Phone app, but the production cost graph has barely moved... That could mean either an astronomical cost or a lack of support from the community... Let's make this happen, guys!

    If they simply expanded documents.logos.com to allow editing and creating of notes, and made it mobile friendly, they could answer that need in no time at all, and everyone would benefit.

    [quote]But the solution for Windows 8.1 users like me is to run full Logos on my Tablet. Yes, I would love to see a more robust app, but I'd even more like to see the full desktop version to be more touch friendly. If that happens, I have little need for a separate app. YMMV.[/quote] That's why I'm not asking for a full-featured app myself (not that

    So, what could Logos do? If Logos was willing to engage in a conversation about this, I believe there are a variety of options that could be put on the table. Obviously, some people might want an app that is feature-equivalent to the iOS and Android versions. However, if Logos was open to start talking about at least some support, I think there would

    Let's look at that argument: 1. These aren't market share numbers. These are percentage of new sales in the various quarters. In some cases, Microsoft may have actually sold more phones than the quarter/year before, just not as much more as Android did. Any of these sales may increase the established base (some will be replacements). 2. Looking at tens

    Not true. Universal apps work on Windows Phone and Windows 8/8.1 now and are being published daily, and nothing keeps Logos from creating one today. As a matter of fact, it would be by far the wisest route. I'm not sure which "effect" you think would be delayed until Windows 10.

  • My Church App Needs to Support Windows

    "My Church App" is dead in the water as far as I am concerned until it provides a Windows Universal App. Half of our pastoral staff are on Windows Phones, a good percentage of folks in the congregation use Surface Pros, and the church office is all on Windows. If Microsoft can support the Fire Phone with OneNote, why can't Logos provide support for

    Let me pile on a little: we are not talking about something insignificant here. We're talking about ministering the word of God, sharing the Good News of salvation, the most significant task mankind ever received (that can only be done on this earth). We have invested our financial resources to fulfill this commission in a toolset that only works within

  • Re: Windows Phone 8 App

    "Reality" - that argument may have held water until Universal Apps. Now that you can largely write the same app for Windows 8/8.1 and Windows Phone 8/8.1, there is plenty of market share (tens to hundreds of millions) that any justification not to release an app is long gone. At this point, it's unwillingness to revisit a business decision that may

    If Logos won't do it... I'm not really that eager for a "try-to-do-everything" Windows Phone app. I use Logos on my Surface Pro, and what would really help me on Windows Phone would be certain helper apps. For instance, a way to quickly add a prayer request to my prayer list, or to quickly take down a quote in a note file or pull up existing notes.

    Except for that Windows 8 has substantially larger market share than Apple's OS, which Logos does support.

    Lots of activity on this post in the last weeks. Logos, we know you're aware of what's being discussed on the forums. Can you give us an update on your response to the obvious increase in demand for a Windows Phone app? On the 1020, the lag is probably the auto focus and exposure evaluation, which happens with most cameras. You could presumably turn

    Well, it's not 100% write once, run anywhere yet, but there is a lot of overlap now, and more coming. Logos will know how much needed functionality falls into the realm that still differs between Windows 8 Store apps and Windows Phone 8 apps. Nonetheless, this doesn't seem like a hurdle too hard to cross if the flesh is willing ;-)

    Version 8 is an operating system in a long string of Microsoft OSes that have always had an above-industry backwards compatibility. Future versions will build on Windows 8. Apple has an operating system for phones and tablets and a separate OS for Macs (MacOS). Google has Android (phones and tablets) and Chrome, so it's not like everything's the same
