The screenshots on the platinum page look pretty cool.  The UI seems to be simplified greatly and that's very exciting.  The current UI is so unnatural!

The upgrade pricing is not what I expected, an upgrade to Platinum v4 will be $743 from my Scholar's Silver version 2 while the upgrade to Gold v4 is $526.  What are your upgrade options looking like?

I would call customer service because its possible that the upgrade cost doesn't take into consideration other resources you have that were not included in Gold/Silver.

Is there an option to sync with your iPhone? Also, is the only way to download 4.0 to purchase an upgrade?

I walked this through the order process (stopped  just before "confirm") to see if it is available on the payment plan (it is.) I noticed a message on the checkout that said my pricing was a unique individualized upgrade. I think the Logos database calculates the unique price based on the registered licenses we have synchronized with it. For example, I do have the Version 3 Gold level  but have a few expensive add-ons. Those add-ons are now rolled into the base package in Version 4 Gold level. l now surmise my upgrade is cheaper based on the expenditure I already made. If this is the case, I probably would not be allowed to sell off those version 3 add-ons as duplicate purchases since they appear to be credited towards a cheaper upgrade price.

ANOTHER THING I noticed is a few of my current Ver 3 Gold level titles dropped from the Ver 4 Gold level package and only appear in the higher packages.. Reminds me of losing Barclay's Daily Study Bible when ND library came out.  (Did Bible & Spade suffer the same fate?)

Zachary from where did you get the installation files?

I am looking for it now, none of my books are showing up right now, but thats a different issue altogether!

My upgrade to Scholar's Library was free (I assume because I just bought it about a week ago). So I upgraded, and it gave me all the links. But like I said may not have been a good idea, none of my library is showing up in it!

I did see a "crossgrade" $69 from my Ver 3 Gold that appeared to have a skinny package. My upgrade page shows a richer content than the "crossgrade" and offers the "upgrade" for $147.   Since I'm a book nut, I didn't bother comparing the skinny or the fat Golds.  I only looked at the Platinum & Portfolio.

Logos 4 is now downloading 5.8 GB of data from them web, this could be a while! Something tells me I didn't do this right, but it seems to be fixing everything on its own.

If you installed the program but have not yet downloaded the resources that might explain the lack of anything showing up in your library.  Do you have Logos 4 pointed to your 3.x resource folder(s)?

Yes, it's here - the interface is familiar - looks like a programmers' environment - that's good. I have a a few problems initially but I've not yet tried to resolve them. - library appears as if empty; Bible people and a couple of other things grayed out ... I'll try it out more thoroughly tomorrow.

I'm noticing the choice between a 3.x CD or DVD-ROM and downloads on the order pages for individual resources like Liddell Scott http://www.logos.com/products/details/1772

Are the resource files different and not compatible between 3.x and 4.0?  I wonder why Logos 4 resources require a download.

Zachary,

That's how it works. You first download the installation programs (about 50 MB) and then, after you have synced your licences, any missing or updated resources will be downloaded (in your case 5.8 GB). The size of this latter install will depend on the library ordered.

Bryan,

Logos 3 resources are compatible with Logos 4. But, all the resources in the new packages have been rebuilt - they are individually smaller and better tagged.

Logos 4 operates in the cloud meaning that Logos will make sure all your files are up-to-date rather then having to update them yourself.
