We need a chapter up, chapter down arrow for the Android mobile version of Logos, just like we have for the PC version. This should be for Bible text, as well as commentaries and other sources. The current horizontal slider bar for scrolling is almost useless for doing chapter-by-chapter changes.

The reason for this, is that when you have a bunch of sources synced, you have to manually scroll back to the top every time you go to a new resource. This is so tedious and unnecessary.

It would be helpful if this were added to feedback.faithlife.com for Faithlife to judge the interest

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I've found, because of this limitation, the better solution (or workaround) is to type in the reference you want for Bibles and use the TOC for books. I primarily use a keyboard on my android phone, though, so this might not be the best option if you are using it by touch. 

For the most part, Logos for Android is terrible with navigation. I've found this to be really bad in Clippings. Once you go in and you can't go back to the previous screen to select a different folder. Simply scrolling in a Bible or in a book is difficult to say the least. But, I'm not using my android device in a conventional way. While it doesn't work well using a keyboard, swiping up and down for navigation works quite well when using it without the keyboard.  

TW5 had chapters listed at the top of every page for quick navigation between them. I would say use the TOC to switch between Bible chapters but, unfortunately, in Logos classic style, once you select a chapter then go back, the TOC does not remember where you were last and collapses everything.  

Overall, using the bar at the top to type in whatever chapter I want to go to works the quickest. I also don't have scrolling selected so I can quickly turn the screen "pages" with successive taps on my trackpad. This works well in places like the Psalms where many of the chapters are short. But in a place like Revelation, especially since my screen size is so small, I tend to just type in the reference most often. I can abbreviate and don't have to use punctuation, its quick and easy.
