With the updates that the Logos for IOS has been received, is the Vyrso still necessary for IOS?

What is the advantage? What do I do in the Vyrso that I do not do in the Logos app?

(Sorry my bad English. I live in Brazil)

The only thing I can think of that you can do in the Vyrso app and not in the Bible app is to control whether Vyrso-only resources are shown or not (this enables you to restrict the list of resources in your mobile app library to those resources you have bought specifically from the Vyrso store).

The Bible app was always the more functional of the two.

But it is sometimes useful to be able to have a book open in Vyrso just for reading while using the Bible app for more detailed study.

Does this help?

I always feel that FL is maintaining several very similar iOS apps so that we can have the equivalence of several "layouts" (for study, for devotions, for casual reading) on iOS.

At least that's how I mainly use the various apps: Vyrso for leisurely reading, Faithlife Study Bible for devotions, Logos/Verbum for sermon research and seminary work. (Note: I'm not a Catholic and do not use the Catholic-specific features in Verbum.)

There are small differences between the various apps. In many cases the different apps are meant for different demographics (customer groups). For example: Vyrso isn't meant for people who need an app to study the bible... it is meant for people who want a simple app to read their eBooks. There is no devotional feature and "Logos edition" books are hidden by default.

I KEEP 3 FL Apps on my devices... I use Verbum as my main one for study and devotions... I have Lutheran resources loaded into Logos making it more or less a lutheran study system. And I keep Vyrso on them to easily have access to the book I am currently reading. Could i get away with just Verbum, probably but I would find it less easy for me.

That's what I thought!

I keep multiple readers on my IOS devices just to have different books open for general reading without having to navigate.  I just have to remember which app to open to get to the desired book.
