Blind me - it's justified by default! This is great for me, I love justified. But I imagine some would like the option to turn it off.

There is no forward button but if you bold down the back button it will reveal your history.

Aha!

Aha!

Two more requests:

1) Please show the iPad top status bar (with clock - current time) at all times.

2) Please reduce the amount of top and bottom white space to maximize the reading space (especially when the header and/or footer are hidden).

Thanks!

Peter

Excellent work. Love copy ability. One thing though, on a word look up some lengthy info can be cut off at the bottom slightly.

Thanks Dave.  Early this afternoon I came down with my second kidney stone in 30 years. They shot me with morphene and another pain killer and sent me home with prescriptions to take. Seeing this  update lifted my spirits, and I am going to stay up copying and pasting.  :)

I think Logos is just trying to tell me they love me. More white space and justified text are two requests I made early on.

Am I the only goofball that can not find the controls for Auto rotation lock?  Seems like I can't get it to rotate at all. 

Thanks in advance for something simple.

You are not alone. I am unable to find the controls for auto rotation lock. I can no longer rotate to landscape mode anymore. However, this is an awesome update. I can't wait for all the other stuff they have in-store for us.

I do feel better in an odd sort of way.  Thanks.

Rotation lock has been removed from the app when running on iOS 4.2+ because the rotation lock built into the OS works better.

Thanks Dave

How do I get landscape mode? I tried but it would not switch to it. Am I missing something? Thanks again.

Perhaps your iOS has rotation lock enabled. Double-click home button, swipe to the right to see the lock.

Thanks for responding. I tried that with no luck. Is yours able to do landscape?

Found the iOS rotation lock but it makes no difference to Logos...  Am I missing something?  I tried to rotate the screen with th lock on and the lock off, no Logos screen flip.

Just remembered I have not restarted since the update, giving that a try.  Didn't help (running iOS 4.3.1)

Logos does flip when in the 'Book' menu so I tried to lock landscape while it's the books menus is in landscape, but iOS lock thinks its still in portrait and pushed the orientation back.  Maybe it's an iOS issue?

I wonder if 1.7 removes the interface for the rotation setting but the code still recognizes and respects whatever it was last set to? So users that had the in-app rotation lock on now have no way to turn it off, but the app still respects the rotation lock setting.

Just speculation, but seems plausible and should be easy to fix in a quick 1.7.1 update.

It's not supposed to, but that wouldn't be the first bug I've ever written. I'm looking into it.

Dave,

The change in the rotation lock in v1.7.0 is a step backwards IMHO.  The iOS level rotation lock only allows locking the device in portrait mode.  It does not allow locking the device rotation in landscape mode.  In previous versions of the Logos App (1.6.3), the rotation lock as implemented in the App. allowed a user to lock the orientation in either portrait or landscape - which is a much better implementation.

I am using an iPhone4 16GB; iOS 4.3.1.

Can you please review this feature and consider re-implementing App-level orientation lock for the Logos App?

The 1.7.0 App looks really great.  I'll post some other feedback over the next 24 hours.

I should add the disclaimer that rotation is working fine for me, I was just wondering if this might cause the issue for those reporting a problem.

A big second to this one!  There is way too much white space on the iPad.  For those of us who require a larger font, the linked panels are now almost useless because of two big top and bottom borders.  I'd prefer a setting to eliminate all that padding and take it back to the way it was before.

|Have just downloaded the update, but not yet had much time to play with it.  | look forward to continuing to read Mueller on iPad and am delighted that Harvard bookshelf has made it there too.  An iPad is much more convenient on my meal tray than even a mini laptop.  Big Smile
