    [quote user="Beloved"] I have my Likebook plugged in to power, but it doesn't appear to be charging. Any guidance? [/quote] Let's run through a basic checklist and see. Is your Likebook fully connected to the usb cable? Is the cable fully connected to the power source? If so, try unplugging the cable and then reconnecting it. What is your power source

    The language options on the Likebook Mars are limited now. However, the Amazon seller has said that future updates will include more languages. The ghosting I see on mine is faint. Still, I wanted to mention it so that people would know in advance that it might be present. The seller also promises to fix this issue as well soon. Overall, I am quite

    The Note is a great option for Logos use. The only reason I ended up selling mine is because I found that I missed the frontlight when reading with an E-Ink device - even though I have the frontlight fairly low. That's the reason why I ended up selling my Note and buying the Likebook Mars. The Mars' performance, with Logos, is roughly the same as that

    [quote user="Kevin Clemens"] Mark - thanks for sharing! This looks like a great option for reading Verbum resources on eink and not my laptop or phone. I would be curious do know how well a few other features work: How smooth is the functionality on highlighting / notes / clipping ? On a Bible with a reverse interlinear (e.g. the RSVCE) how well does

    As promised, here is a four minute video which introduces the Likebook mars and gives a brief look at how it handles Verbum/Logos. I hope it is helpful.

    From what I'm told, Likebook Mars units being sold through Amazon (US) now have Google Play pre-installed. I hope to have a video up for you by the end of the day tomorrow.

    Onyx is supposed to release the Nova before the end of the year, but no definite date has been announced. Similar specs to the Likebook Mars, IIRC. Probably a similar price, too. The Dasung looks promising, but I'll pass on the crowdfunding campaign. Show me the actual device, out there and available for purchase, and at a better price... and then we

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] Where did you get the Logos/Verbum app for sideloading? I don't really want to go through the PlayStore (even after the software update) as the Google services are probably a bit of a battery drainer. My unit should arrive in the next few days. I'm already looking forward to it. [/quote] I have an Android tablet. I used the

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] Cant be worse than my super old Onyx device, that's still running Android 2.3. [/quote] The ghosting isn't bad at all, but some folks could find it annoying. Hence my warning. By tapping the icon that toggles A2 mode on and off, you can do a manual refresh as desired. This ghosting is the only negative thing I can say about

    [quote user="Jan Krohn"] Having researched and investigated e-ink options for a long time now, I'd say this device is the most promising one ever. It can even play audio. [/quote] I agree.

    Another E-Ink option, less than half the Note's price, for anyone who is interested. See it here . This device does not have Play Store and does have some ghosting issues in some apps. However, Boyue promises that an October update will address both issues.

    Bill, What I am wondering is to what extent Onyx will support the Note with upgrades. For the older E-Ink devices running 4.x.x, the story was that the hardware could not support an Android version newer than 4.4.2. Now, with upgraded hardware, in theory, Onyx could upgrade the Android version in future firmware upgrades. Whether they will - that's

    Hi, Bill, Yes, my primary uses for Verbum on the Note are: reading, passage guides, and word study guides. The Note handles all three very well. It's easily the best E-Ink device I have yet had in terms of how well it runs Logos. The Atlas is slow, but I wasn't planning to use it on the Note anyway. I showed it as I knew that others might be interested

    Here is a link to a somewhat unprofessional video that I did with my iPhone of me doing a few things with Verbum/Logos on my Onyx Boox Note. The video is in mov format, so you need something that can play QuickTime stuff! It should give you some idea of how Logos/Verbum works on the Note. The video is about 250 mb. https://www.dropbox.com/s/108a76spcl3pqmk
