I've really enjoyed Logos and in seeing the development of both the Mac and iOS versions!  Much great work has been done over the last few years for these platforms.  Thanks for all you've done to make a very useful, mobile tool.

 

I wanted to forward two suggestions that would help make a great product better.  One would be the addition of page numbers in-line with the text as an option to the iOS platform.  This would make use in seminary classes very useful.  I've noticed one can already type a page number to go to that page, and that is very useful.

 

Another feature that would be very helpful with Lexicons, BDAG, and some other books is the ability to type a Hebrew or Greek word to move immediately to that word.  This works well on the Mac and would make referencing those resources on mobile platforms even better.

 

Thanks again for all your work!

Do you mean like this screen shot from my iPad? Smile

 

I do want to warn you, however, that not all resources have page numbers. I know this is irritating, but it is one of the downsides of electronic resources. Logos resources are much more likely to have page numbers than Vyrso ones, by the way.

If there is a resource you are having problems with this, check in L4 to see if there are page numbers. If there are, but you can't get the app to display them, post back here and let us know which resource.

That is helpful as is the page number in the "Go" or search box.  I could have been a little more clear in my post.  What I was intending was the annotations that specify beginning and ending page numbers in-line with the text.  This shows in the desktop version when one clicks the three circles and chooses "show page numbers."  I've found a number of commentaries are indexed to the specific page numbers, which is great for citations.  

 

Agree on the challenge of page numbers in electronic resources.  Many resources don't have page numbers indexed on the Kindle, also, which makes citing the resource a bit of a challenge.  Where page numbers are there, however, having the precise breaks is very helpful.
