I would love to get Logos working on an E-Ink device but don’t know much about them. Which devices definitely work with Logos? Do all the Boox products work? Are there alternatives? I pretty much only care about Logos and Kindle books. Any info would be helpful, thanks.

Boox are commonly mentioned. You need to get an Android eink device. The lifespan of the device will partially depend upon how long the device is suppported with Android updates.

I own a Boox Max Lumi 1st edition. I am vision impaired and this device is a key tool that allows me to continue my studies. It certainly does work for Logos and Kindle and more.

It also allows me to handwrite notes directly on pdfs, saving me from having to print out worksheets and studyguides.

It allows me to download government forms and sign them and email them back without ever printing or scanning anything, and in just minutes. This has saved my butt during this pandemic and all the upheaval and chaos that has plagued me in this plague.

There is a second edition now. That makes me worry a bit about when my current device will become unsupported. But ... it is a bit of a miracle that I was given the first edition, and if I need a new model to complete the Lord's plan for me, our Heavenly Daddy will provide that too. He keeps me dependent on crumbs like manna from heaven, with my trust always in Him, not idolizing any other source of resources. Worry is pointless and maybe even sinful, so I try not to do it.

Getting Google Playstore on the device was a bit of a pain, but I did manage it. There is a waiting period involved in the process! A long one! That makes many people panic, and think they cannot get Google Playstore on the device. Find and follow the instructions exactly and be prepared to wait.

You might be able to run both Kindle and Logos just from the Kindle Playstore, and skip the Google playstore set-up. I needed Google Playstore for my email app. Since I had Google, I used Google for Logos too, as I think it sometimes is a more updated and tested app.

Youtube has some great training videos for the Boox Max Lumi.
