Hi David - thanks for this.

David Schwegler:
Tap on a panel to navigate or change resources

Can you expand on this - it seems to work as it used to?

Or does it mean that you can tap in each panel of a split screen to navigate or change resources?

Thanks, Graham

This is nice - particularly on a phone-factor device

Many thanks, Graham

Yes, it means you can tap in each panel of a split screen. I'll clarify that in the announcement.

Thanks for the support!

  • Thanks for split screen and linking - works well in Vyrso on my Samsung Galaxy S, especially in landscape.

    It installed fine on mine. Used the link at the beginning of this thread. Once downloaded it updated to the new version. The "marker" in the bottom right corner which allows you to adjust the pane size was difficult to see and more difficult to "grab." Once I did, it works great. Make sure you have "allow installation of applications from unknown sources" in Settings --> Device set to On.

    I can second that the handle is difficult to grab. It works well once open though.

    One complaint I have had with iOS too is that if you close your second split panel for a bit (think days) and then reopen it, it doesn't remember the last open resource but loads the Summarized Bible by default. When this happens to me I am usually reading a Bible verse in the first panel and opening the Summarized Bible changes navigation in the Bible too. This gets pretty frustrating after it happens a few times. Really two things need to happen here; one, you need to remember the last open resource in the second panel even if it is closed for weeks. When reopening load that last resource. If the panels are set to link the reference point in the FIRST open panel should cause the newly opened SECOND panel to navigate and match. I can't imagine a scenario where someone would have a closed resource in that second panel and expect their open resource to jump to a new location to match the previously hidden panel. That is frustrating behavior to me.

    Also, you might want to toggle the installing of apps back off when you are done loading Logos. There are some apps out there that don't play nice.

    You have to type the beta URL exactly as listed as it is case sensitive.

    It downloaded easy enough, but could not install. I'm running stock software....no root on my fire. I'll try sideloading and see if that makes a difference. Beta looks good on my Motorola Triumph Smile.

    Yes. I usually use an iPad but have been working with a Kindle Fire recently.

    Side loading on the Fire didn't work. Does anyone have the new beta working on a stock Fire?

     

    Thanks.

    Yes, I went into settings (gear icon in menu bar) -> More -> Device -> Allow Installation of Applications and set it to on. I then navigated to the forums and followed the link to download the APK for the newest beta. It installed right away. I also have Easy Installer on the Fire but I don't think it is necessary.

    Well....that's interesting. I have the Allow Installation of [Third Party] Applications toggled to on and have not rooted my fire. Mine errors every time (goes through the application installation with a final message that the application was not installed) whether downloading from the forum link or side loading from a working installation on my Motorola Triumph. Very Interesting indeed

    Today will be my first chance to play with it.  I probably should take some notes on some first impressions.  

    BUT FOR THE RECORD: Logos was the very first app I installed.  Smile
