Does anyone run the Logos app on an Android E-ink reader?  How does it work for you?

I run Logos on both an e-ink device and on an up-to-date Galaxy phone (as a fallback). E-ink has some positive and negative aspects.

Positive:

  • It's very soothing for your eyes compared to an LED screen.
  • The battery lasts for about a month.
  • No distraction through other apps that are installed on the same device.
  • If you root your device, you can install your entire library on SD.

Negatives:

  • All known e-ink devices run outdated Android versions, therefore you can only run an unsupported Logos version.
  • A small percentage of resources can't be downloaded to an unsupported Logos version (for me, about 6% of my library).
  • According to Murphy's Law, you always need the books that had not been downloaded.

For installation, you have to download the app from FL, and sideload it onto your device.
