Thank you for the update. I love that there are updates every month. It really shows how much you care about your customers. I have been testing the new version and it does seem to be a little faster. The one thing I was hoping for was a fix for the broken intra book link. I am still unable to get to other books from clicking on a link. I can get to other books in the bilble but  say I am reading a commentary and the commentary references another commentary or book the link fails to open up. If the commentary references a bible passage the link works. You can see what I am talking about if you have the SDA commentary. Just go to the end of a chapter and try and select one of the links to another book or commentary and you will see what i am talking about.

Anyway great job, I really like the 2 finger swipe. waiting patiently for the fix.

In previous versions, I was able to "swipe up" beginning the swipe at the verse I was studying to add that particular verse to favorites, etc.  This function seems to have been lost in this upgrade.  Now the "swipe up" defaults to the first displayed verse.  I miss this function.  Is there some reason I am overlooking to have taken this function away?

I wasn't aware that you could swipe up from a particular verse. However, you can swipe up and change the verse reference using the forward and back arrow to the desired verse. This works fine for me.

Yes, a couple of updates back, the swipe up registered a particular verse.  I thought this was a nice feature.  The forward and back arrows do work fine, it just takes a few extra seconds.

Wonderful app. Thanks for the work and the constant improvements. I use my iPad for pretty well all I do with Logos. I do my daily devotional reading with it, I use it for sermon prep frequently and I use it lead liturgy and preach. 

Your new swiping is good although not particularly consistent. Perhaps I'm not holding my mouth right. 

Some small things which seem to have gone away and which I miss in this and the previous new release: 

  1. 2 columns in portrait view without having to decrease font size
  2. I could tap on a word in a verse anywhere on the page and when I tapped "+" that verse number would appear on the navigator bar without having to tap the right arrow repeatedly to get there so I could add it to Favourites  

I'm sure it's in the works, I'd just like to add my vote for highlighting and notes asap. 

Eastertide blessings to all…

Two possibilities come to mind:

  1. Time travel. Move back or forward through history. Always wanted to see the pyramids being built...
  2. Navigating your usage history. Instead of using the back arrow at the top left to move through your history, just touch two fingers to the screen and swipe left or right. So if you're reading a book and tap a Scripture reference to go to the Bible, to get back to your book you can double swipe to the left.

Not sure I understand how to use the new 2-finger swipe function in history.  Could someone please explain?  thanks.

Instead of using a one finger swipe to turn pages in your book, use two fingers. If you swipe towards the left, you'll go back to the place you were reading previously - even if that was in a different book. Swipe right (with two fingers) to go forward.

A few updates ago when I would tap on the screen in whatever I was reading my last 10 or so resources used from my library would appear above the scroll bar. Now I can't find that. Is the two finger swipe meant to replace that, or is there a way to get those to reappear?

The arrow to the left of the reference box takes you back one place (like a two finger swipe). But if you press and hold on the arrow, you'll get a nice list.

I was using 1.7.2 in church for the first time on Sunday and ran into a weird usability situation with the two finger history swipe. I often hold my iPad in portrait while reading along during sermons and use the pad of my thumb to page over and back. This was invoking history instead of paging which I don't think is correct. It took me a few minutes to figure out as it at first seemed that Logos was just freaking out. I could get around it by altering the angle of my thumb but it seems to be a pretty ingrained habit for me and I did it unconsciously a few more times.
