For Dr. Cozier: I had the same issues as you and went through the same steps as you. Like you, my fire is not rooted. I was finally able to get it to install by uninstalling the logos version downloaded from Amazon Market. The beta then installed without issue. However, the fire is telling me now I need to update my Logos at the Amazon Market. Oh well, it seems there is always a price for using Logos software in the beginning. I have logos on my iphone from the beginning of it's release and am still waiting for sync to be finished but that is another topic.

Thank you for the split screen! Yes
Installation went well on my Acer Iconia A500.  Is there any way to make "Jump to a reference" open on the  "other" screen?

From what I've observed the problem comes from a modified Android OS on devices that don't allow you to use Android Market. I have no issues installing the beta on my Samsung Galaxy phone.

Yes, thank you, I will add this to the release notes.

To install the beta on the Kindle Fire, you must uninstall the Amazon Market version first.

Similarly, when you no longer want the beta, you must uninstall the beta version *before* installing or clicking "update" from the Amazon Market. My understanding is that there are problems that can occur if you try to use the market's updater while you have a non-market version of an app installed.

If you have the resource open in the "other" screen (and you're not already in the resource), then it will use the other screen. So, for example, if you have a commentary in one screen and your preferred bible in the other, then any reference jumps from your commentary will navigate your preferred bible in the other screen.

Is that sufficient for your needs?

...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...

That's quite strange -- it is indeed supposed to remember the resource/location you had open in any pane you close -- I just tested it on my device here and it behaves as expected. Can you try the following?

  1. Open ESV in the top panel. Wait for it to finish loading.
  2. Open the ASV in the bottom panel. Wait for it to finish loading.
  3. Close the bottom panel.
  4. Force stop the app (Go to your system's settings -> Manage Applications -> Logos (or Vyrso if you're using that) -> Force Stop).
  5. Open the app to the reading view. Wait for it to finish loading.
  6. Open the bottom panel. Wait for it to finish loading. Does the ASV appear?

Robert Mullen:
...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.

What you're describing would be a bug. I'll look into it.

Following these directions does reopen the ASV as would be expected. There may be something else that factors into the behavior I described. I will try and pay attention next Sunday and see what happens. The times I have seen this is when I have had the second panel (with SBLGNT usually) closed for a week or two and then go to open it with the ESV open in the primary pane. On each occasion the Summarized Bible opened instead of the SBLGNT then the ESV navigates to the reference point of the Summarized Bible. This behavior has been seen repeatedly on the iPad and once on the Kindle Fire. Can I ask what resource gets loaded in the second panel if no history is found? (I.E. the first time a user opens the panel on a new install)

...The "marker" in the bottom right corner which allows you to adjust the pane size was difficult to see and more difficult to "grab." ...

We will address this, thank you.

The very first time you open the second pane in Logos for Android, it will either be your preferred bible (if you have a non-bible open in the first panel) or the Summarized Bible of the New Testament (if you have a bible open in the first panel).

I can't speak to how iOS works, but on Android, that setting is only supposed to be cleared if you uninstall the app or clear the app's data. Let me know if it occurs without you doing either of those things. Thanks!

The problem then is that the commentary also "jumps" to that reference when the panels are linked. This could be improved if the software overrides the link in that situation else I have to make a change in Settings and then remember to reverse it.

Yes, for now it is good enough.  With the split screen option Logos on Android is getting closer to being a very good tool.  Offline searching and highlighting will make it much, much better.

Thank you for your help, David!

Grace and peace!

David Schwegler:

We have released Beta 1 of 0.9.4 today. This will be a non-market release.

Any idea on when the release to Market will occur, I'm trying to avoid problems with the beta, at the moment I'm satisfied with my Fire, but would love to see highlighting and notes added... any chance that will happen soon? Using the Kindle Fire "back page" and also the "history" under more in the app is allowing me to switch back and forth in Bibles and and resources, so don't take too long or I'll get tempted to install the beta.

Thanks for all the effort you put into this!

Not soon and definitely after it appears for iOS (which could be soonSmile)

Sad Was hoping that all the success the Fire was having, they'd be all over this... more sales for Vyrso E-books, though the L4 books work better on the Fire then either the Kindle or Vyrso E-books. Oh well, I'm just happy I have a cheap way of reading my resources away from my PC.

Will do. I am thinking the time I saw this happen on the Kindle Fire I had uninstalled the Logos app that I downloaded from the Amazon app store and loaded the most recent beta instead. That would make loading the Summarized Bible the correct behavior based on your explanation. I will watch for any other behavior and report back.

Not that I doubt you but do you have a source for that info? It has been explained on the iOS side that notes and highlights are done, submitted, and waiting for release of desktop 4.5. Since desktop 4.5 is in RC now that is probably just around the corner. Is Android development a couple steps behind? Just curious too: Devs, are you using MonoDroid and MonoTouch?

Thank you, I am not a twitter(er) so I missed that. it is too bad as I have kind of taken a liking to my Kindle Fire at the moment but might have to break the iPad out when notes are released. I really feel for Logos having to try and keep all this up to speed together. Mac, Windows, Web, iOS, Android, oh my.

I don't twitter either, but I got it via the person who asked the question.

Thank you for the split screen and linking. This app just keeps getting better and better; can't wait to see what's coming next! Works great on my DroidX.
