Hey, just to mention while Logos 7 was indexing new resources on my aging Win7 box, I visited (again) the Logos Web App.  Wow... it is becoming one of the most sophisticated web apps I've come across.  Take a bow.  Kudos.  Congrats.  Looking forward to more.

If you're looking for a suggestion (though it is possibly implemented but I didn't see), it would be for all the passage guide categories (commentaries, journals, sermons, crossrefs, etc)  to not open/populate with all the resource links by default, unless the user wants.  With the desktop app, I can select which categories to search/open (down arrow) versus stay closed (side arrow).  This might speed things up over the web... especially when I'm not interested in all categories all the time.

But regardless... amazing work Logos Web App Team!

Steve,

We appreciate the feed back, especially that you are enjoying the web app. We hope to continue to make it better for you so that you will continue to go back to it for your studies! Keep checking back for more, and of course get the word out about it!

I relooked at the web app last night and this morning.  Last night the top 3 squares on the homepage (open your bible...etc) simply did not ever load.  I do not know what caused that.  It is not happening this morning.  But it was unacceptable last night.  Do you know what might cause that?  It is not the first time I have noticed a forever loading of the Bible.

I really really would like to be able to view my own favorites as well as my own layouts.  If the web app had these two features and they loaded quickly, that would possibly be a game changer for me.

Mark, 

We are aware of the 3 cards not loading properly, still looking into what causes it. Are you running the latest version of your browser?

As for layouts, that is something we have in line to work on. We hope to be adding more functionality soon!

Not criticizing; just reporting, if needed.

The 3 spinning cards were still there at startup, using the saved favorite (Safari; ios9.last; prev-geb mini). But starting 'raw' (app.logos.com) worked.  I assume something in the favorite-save.

In the latest, 'change' text overlaps the menu buttons on each card (and overlaps off the card).  Safari, mini, as above.

I don't get how to use the tabs. In the image below, I couldn't switch to either of the first tabs. It simply re-loaded the displayed tabs. Over and over.

Thanks Jeromy.  Yes, I am running Firefox 55.0.1

I'm using Chrome and this page works...perfectly. I don't have a single complaint. I'd love to be able to save a layout at some point, but that's a minor thing. My question: As a Logos 10 user, am I going to continue to have access to this, without having to subscribe to Logos Cloud? Or is this a free trial? Because it sure does beat Biblia in every possible way. However, I'd have to say that on my tight budget, I wouldn't be able to subscribe to it when I can still use the software. 

Thanks so much for continuing to give us a better and better project. I'm wowed by the web app.

Don't see how to edit my post, but of course I'm NOT in Logos 10 but Logos 7. I have no access to future versions!

Rob, yes as an owner of Logos 7 you have access to the web app. Last week we made it available for free with Logos 7 Basic!

Sneaky! I didn't see mention anywhere, on the blog, or the Logos Basic PDP, etc. Can you update us with an official announcement (of Basic available on PC, Mac, mobile, & now on the web) that we can share on Facebook, Faithlife, Twitter, etc,. so that we can help spread the (W)ord?

Yes

We are working on getting the word out, emails went out to Basic users last week. Hopefully, this will help people who are hesitant to download the desktop software get into Scripture with us. Feel free to organically spread the news!

You're going to win a lot of customer goodwill with this one. Many of us who are lay people and don't have pastoral book budgets can no longer upgrade to new systems, other than the basic "cross-grade." We're happy with our software but find it to be much slower to open for a quick check on a passage, or a quick word study. The Biblia site has done the job, but now, with the many extra features available on the web app, and the lovely interface, that has become an even more superior option. It makes it clear that the future of Logos is in the cloud (like the future of us Wink). If I were just starting on Logos I'm sure a cloud membership would be the way to go--something we couldn't have imagined in 1999, when I got started.
