Using Logos on my iPhone, I've looked at the following:

   - An Intermediate Greek-English Lexicon

   - A Concise Dictionary of the Words in the Greek Testament and the Hebrew Bible

How am I supposed to look up most words in those two resources?  If I go into the Table of Contents, and then go into the "A" list (for example), the list stops at αβελτερος in the former resource and Αββα in the latter resource.  What if I wanted to look up the word αγαπη?

Basically the only way I can think of is to jump to the first letter for the word I want, and then flip through a bunch of pages.  As it is, I can't directly look up most words, so those two resources listed above are pretty much useless to me.

Am I missing something?  Or is there a better Greek lexicon/dictionary that I've overlooked?

I asked the same question about the Table of Contents in Bible dictionaries. I got the same response that you are getting. I got no responses to my question. I have noticed that the Table of Contents in many of the resources are not complete. This makes finding entries hard. you have to page through a dictionary to find the word that you want. Is this a bug with the program, or is there a way to access the complete Table of Contents that is available in L4?

The ToC problem was a design decision.  There's discussion in this prior thread, including responses from Logos: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/9335/74234.aspx

But they haven't made any progress on this issue since then.

If you are running a Bible Word Study you can type g:agape and you will find αγαπη in BDAG and DBL Greek if you have this resources in your library. (If you are looking for hebrew lemmas you have to type h: before the transcripted word in BWS.
