I like how in the Olive Tree iOS app, you can touch a word in the Bible and it will show you the Strong's definition for the word.

1) How do I accomplish the same in the Logos iOS app?

2) Can I have it point to another dictionary / lexicon other than the standard Strong's dictionary?  How do I do that and what do I have to download to use offline to make that happen?

Thanks,
Peter

Any thoughts, anyone?

Hi Peter

If you are reading ESV or NRSV or any of the other reverse interlinears, you can tap the word and the interlinear info pops up (MSS, Lemma, Morphology, Strong's no). You can then select Bible Word Study , which will bring up a selection of definitions from a selection of your lexicons (plus other useful information). You can click on these definitions to take you to the resource, from where you can navigate to other lexicons using the hyper links.

I hope this helps

Thanks Andrew.  I am aware of that feature -- when you have an internet connection.

I should have mentioned in my original post -- what can be done while offline?  The closest I can get to the Strong's definitions was to download an interlinear for offline use.

Have you found a better way to do that without an internet connection?

Thanks,

Peter

Sorry Peter.

No, this is a current limitation of the software. It's not great when offline, just a reader really. This is one of a couple of times I switch to Olivetree. The other time is when I need to read NIV. I am hopeful that this will be rectified in future releases.

I find it useful to have a few different biblereaders on my iPhone. Between them all most things are covered.

Tapping doesn't seem to work for me on the iPad with ESV or NRSV.
