There is a way how to get Android apps to Widows 10 Mobile devices. I tried it yesterday and it works. It means there will be also official way soon.
For Faithlife Android team:  please look at that (I am sure you already do) all works well, except the visibility of the main text in Bibles and books (quite important Smile)

I assure you, Logos looks very nice on my Lumia 830 Yes

Here is the screenshots of my Lumia 830 with Logos, Vyrso and Faithlife Study Bible:

Are you saying that you cannot read the text of your books?

Had the same Problem. Just a black screen... Everything else worked, The Library, Guides etc.

Yes, that's the only problem, other things work very nice and prompt. And... I have to say, I really like that (Android) version of Logos. It looks the easiest way to get Logos to Windows phones. We don't need anything else. If the development team would look at the problem of text display, we would be really happy customers. Can we hear from Faithlife about that? Thank you.

I'm guessing whichever method you used to get our Android apps running on your phone works for Java but not for native C/C++.  Please see here and here for previous discussions of a similar problem with ARC Welder and Chrome OS.

Hello Lynden, sorry not to answer for so long. I have Nokia Lumia 830 with 16 GB internal memory. System takes about 7.4 GB. Then I have 64 GB microSD card. It is possible to install apps on the card. Windows 10 works very nice on that phone. I have installed a couple of Android apps and some of them work well. For instance YouVersion Bible works without any problems. Logos and other Faithlife apps do not display the main text.

The method I used is Astoria project (that became available publicly on the Internet) that Microsoft has opened to get Android apps to the Windows 10 phones and other devices.

That is a great job.

Did you just download the APK file and then ran it through Project Astoria?

Is it possible to look in the source code and change the text color?

The new Android to Windows compilers Microsoft is building (called Astoria) supposedly support native C & C++. cf. http://www.infoq.com/news/2015/05/astoria-islandwood-centennial

If it's not working, but they say they support it, hopefully it would indicate that there are just a small number of changes, rather than a complete rewrite, that need to be implemented to make it work correctly.

When you google the matter, you will find at least 2 ways (the easiest is a small utility that connects your phone with the PC and then lets you install the apk apps). I don't think I am to give direct links and instructions here but the information is on many servers that write about Windows 10 Mobile. The problem with the visibility of main text have to be addressed I think by the devs in Faithlife Android team. That is what I hope for in this matter.

I think you are perfectly right. Yes
