Is there a way to toggle between Page Number and Resource Chapter in the mobile app? This is easily done in the desktop application but in the mobile app, the information that appears at the top of the page telling you where you are in the resource seems to be random: sometimes it shows the chapter, sometimes it shows the page number.

Would really like to lock it on page number or at least be able to select which one I prefer.

No. But you can navigate using either method. For example, in Bible Knowledge Commentary I can enter Vol 1 page 27. In other commentaries I can type page 47 .

Yes but, the problem is that most of the time it defaults back to the reference like "Homily 4.2" but I need the page number so i know where I am and there is no possibility to make bookmarks so it is kind of frustrating to navigate and know where I am in the book when I am reading the book. Any thoughts or tricks?

Wow, Michael, you hit a raw nerve.

Being able to tell where you are (or more importantly were) is something the FL app guys just can't solve. I have their old app and new. They just can't do it.

Kindle nails it. But on FL, many a time, I come back to a book to continue, and have no clue were it's at. I grab my Kindle.

There are bookmarks! They are called "favorites."

Ok. The favourites is a good help and I will use it but I also need the page number for other reasons. For example, I set myself goals of how much to read per day and I cannot track this without page number.

I thought that maybe the favorites would show the page number along with the reference but it does not.

A simple drop down like the main PC software would be perfect...
