Overall it is very encouraging to see substantial progress with this current release (Logos for iP-hone/od/ad 1.5.0). True I can't download the ESV SB for offline use on my 3rd Gen iPod Touch but at least I can still view the ESV study notes when I open a cross reference in the ESV bible or open the study notes online.

This is so much quicker now offline for me. 

Thanks!

I thought it was supposed to be faster, it doesn't appear that way to me, takes way more time than the previous version. Also, how do you delete a downloaded resource that keeps trying to update but is no longer on the device. (Bible Knowledge Commentary). I'm actually quite tired of the broken promise that all of our library resources would be available on our mobile devices.

Doing what, specifically? <edit>Also, if you're currently downloading bookings that will slow the app down. Once the books have downloaded you should notice an improvement.</edit>

Good question. Don't know, sorry.

I'm not aware this was ever promised. Logos is entirely in the hands of the publishers on this one. If they refuse to give permission, I'm not sure what Logos can do. If there's a resource you miss, I'd contact the publishers if I was you.

Dave Dunkin:

Known Issues

  • Downloading very large books, e.g. ESV Study Bible, on devices other than iPhone 4 may cause the app to crash

I suppose there is not a fix to this problem until the next release?  The Holman Bible Atlas crashes every time after 10 minutes of downloading.

Dave Dunkin:

  • If your primary Bible has been downloaded, but not updated for version 1.5, Bible reference popups will not display correctly
  • I don't quite understand this one.  My primary Bible is CUV (Chinese Union Version).  The CUV itself displays beautifully (thanks!) but Bible reference popups are still using the old larger font and the sentences are still cut off because of incorrect formatting.  I have the iPad, am on iOS 4.2.1, and Logos 1.5.  What else do I have to do to get my Bible reference popups to display correctly in Chinese?

    Thanks!

    Peter

    p.s. The painful re-downloads of 460+ books finally finished last night.

    This referred to non-updated Bibles displaying a null error. It's a separate issue to yours, which I guess is a bug.

    Dave - maybe I ave missed this, but is it possible to do a clean install of the Logos App on Ipad - removing all downloaded volumes to start again. I have 1600 books downloaded - now with better of idea for using (invaluable) I could remove the books and reinstal, say 100: I need a quick and easy method ... can it be  done?

    Just completely uninstall the app, then re-install it. To do this, press and hold on the icon, until the icons start jumping around. Then press the X to delete.

    Colin, I believe that the easy way would be to have a collection set up on the desktop and let the app find it and then sync it to your device.  I have advocated this for a while now, but have never heard any one else think that this would be a good idea.  Many want all of their books on the device, however, I like you have found that this is not needed... I hope that Dave will be able to help us out on this one in the very near future!

    I back you! It would be much easier than click the little slider on a few hundred resources.

    This is a particularly unusual situation with the BKC. Try this:

    1. Put the device into airplane mode
    2. In Logos, find the book in the Library
    3. In the book info view, flip the switch to off
    4. Turn off airplane mode

    If the publishers have already given their permission for me to be able to purchase and download to my computer what is the issue with that same resource being available on my mobile device. Maybe Logos could come up with a way for us to copy the resource from our computers to the mobile devices for our use.

    Common sense agrees with you, but the publishers and the law don't. The licence you had when you purchased the resource was a licence for it to be used on a desktop computer only. The fact that it can be copied from a desktop to a handheld device unfortunately is irrelevant. The problem is not the technology (easy to solve), but the publishers.

    That has been my point all along, and it would also make it easy to change the books as well!

    Cannot get my Bible Reading Plan to sync with my iPad with 1.5.0.

    Using NASB95 Bible. Tried deleting plans, re-adding, deleting the app, re-signing in, hitting the sync button on the computer-- all to no avail.

    This is very frustrating since I do almost all my devotional reading on my iPad. Anyone else having this issue??? Any ideas on resolving would be much appreciated!

    How long have you waited? The Logos servers are apparently rather overloaded at the moment, and syncing reading plans in taking a while.
