I know this is old news, but I just had to rant a bit.

First, I love L4 and the iPhone app.

I was helping out a Pastor with a class on Proverbs.  Being Lutheran, I chose to select People's Bible commentary on Proverbs.  http://www.logos.com/ebooks/details/PB20PR

Of course, it came in right away.  But when checking my iPhone, I do not have it.  My purpose was to have it be available, so that the underlined items would show up when I opened my iPhone.  Even taking a laptop would be a hassle, to have to read from, but that iPhone presents a whole lot of convenience.

I realize that publishers have not given the go-ahead, but from what I can tell with the one I consulted, they are just waiting for Logos to contact them, as I indicated when I sent Logos the memo.

Perhaps it would be a good idea, to put a small icon on the screen of books, which are not authorized yet, so that if I am going to buy a commentary specifically for use on my iPhone, I do not buy it, when it will not even be available.

Thanks.

I'm guessing this is a man power issue. But I second the desire to know before you buy which will be iphone available.

If a book is available, there is an indicator on the product page.

Regarding buying a new Pre-Pub book, and it not showing up in IPhone, I purchased IVP Dictionary of the Old Testament, Pentateuch and Historical books collection and the product page says that it is on the Iphone.  

I installed it on my Macbook, synchronized the licenses in both Logos for Mac 1 and Logos 4 for Mac.  I restarted my computer and it is appearing on my laptop.  I have read it on my laptop.  I have restarted my Iphone several times and resynched my Macbook licenses several times.  It is not appearing in the Iphone.

Am I doing something wrong?

I don't have an iPhone, but they're not showing up on library.logos.com either.  I guess something is amiss on Logos' side.

This is good to know.  I'll probably not buy anymore resources unless they can be used across all platforms.  Hope the publishers get a clue!

Did anyone figure out why books showing as being available for iphone are not showing up on the iphone? I have a couple instances of this where it's in LS4 on my desktop but not the iPhone... just curious.

Thanks,

Andrew

No problem. It's good to get the link to the other thread in here anyway for anyone else that reads this thread.
