We had been using our Oculus Quest 2 (standalone VR head unit for $299) mostly for games and a little exploration (Google street view in 360, that kind of thing). The other day I decided to give the Immersed app a try on the Oculus, where you can work in virtual environments with manipulatable desktop screens, so of course I decided to give Logos a try. Despite the occasional lag (our router isn't the latest), the experience was too awesome to aptly describe. I've been a Logos user since 2003, the days of Libronix. I've thoroughly enjoyed using Logos on multiple screens, iPads, iPhones, airplay, and all the rest. But I'm telling you, the VR experience has ruined me. It's next level awesome and amazing for concentrating on getting my study done and projects completed. Of course, I know I look ridiculous, so I don't bring it into the office (yet) and just use it for at home study to eliminate distractions. 

As far as feature requests go, I really don't have much to offer except the far fetched idea that maybe someday Logos might look into a study app native to Oculus, where we can read and highlight our books in VR. But honestly, everything else I could hope for is already available through Immersed (free on Oculus store) and a decent connection to your laptop computer.

too bad you couldn't open a map and transport yourself in to it's geography. Or open a vid of an ancient ruin and be a virtual archeologist. 

Now you're giving me thoughts DevilWink

Porting Logos android mobile app to Oculus should require a minimum of work since Oculus Quest IS an Android system.  The way I found your post was I was googling if someone had sideloaded the Logos Android app on quest yet. (Sideloading is a legal way to copy normal Android apps onto your quest) 

I'm with you brother, I like using logos in immerse floating above a beach or in that spaceship with the earth rotating outside the window!

So are you using the oculus controllers to do stuff in Logos or are you still using a regular mouse? 

Just wondering if you're shooting laser beams at the Bible to do searches and open guides. lol

I'm not using it so often because you are right ... Shooting laser beams is not so great for scrolling and such. The immerse app the opp mentioned does, however, support using a mouse and a virtual keyboard overlay ... So you can bring your keyboards into vr.  I use a laptop and tried the keyboard overlay about half a year ago and it was terrible.  Probably would work fine with an actual USB keyboard (sunken keys in a laptop are probably hard for the software to distinguish).

I bet with a separate keyboard this can be pretty nice by now.  Oh one other thing the all supports now free hand control ... Oculus can recognize your fingers so you do not have to use controllers at all. There are motions to scroll, pinch things zoom etc. You still "shoot lasers" but they come from your fingers instead...
