Donnie Hale:
Has anyone seen release notes for this update? Logos has been inconsistent at best in posting release notes here. The info on the device itself is fairly short, but maybe they're relying on that now to represent release notes for the mobile devices.

I think they're relying on the AppStore "What's New" section to distribute the release notes.  Is that what you mean by "on the device"?  They're pretty complete in my opinion, and more people should see them there than here.  Here's the web version:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bible!/id336400266?mt=8

What's New in Version 3.1.4

New
- Added “Adjust” feature to reading plans. Use Adjust to restart all of the unread readings to begin today.
- Bible Reference filtering in Bible searches
– Lists of Bible references do not yet sync with Desktop apps
– When creating a filter, select multiple contiguous Bible books by long pressing and then dragging
- Reset your progress in a book by long pressing on the Progress ring (on the iPad) or the book cover (on the iPhone)

Improved
- Transferring less data for when sync’ing notes document changes
- All resource location sharing uses a ref.ly link
- Faster loading of the Daily Readings list
- Reducing the number of time the Library appears to reload

Fixed
- Restored the Gentium font for Greek text
- Fixed history issue when display Guides
- Sorting by name when displaying custom markup palette styles
- Document name changes sync correctly

Yes, that's what I meant. I never go to the iTunes store - either on the device or on the web. I go to the app store very rarely - only when looking for a specific app or to upgrade one I have, like Logos Bible. So all I see is the notes on the "Updates" screen of the app store.

Sorry. We've been a little behind on the communication of release notes, what with the pre-Christmas scurrying-about and folks on vacation. I'll post a new thread with the release notes, but they're pretty much the same as what Todd posted here.

Just a heads up...

I rely strongly on my mobile divices for Logos...after all that is one reason why we are willing to pay such high prices for the Logos e-books.

But I have learned the hard way to NEVER EVER do the updates to the Apps when they first come out. They are just too unreliable. I always wait at least a week or 2 and even then I always check the forums to see if there are any problems with the update. Logos usually have the updates fixed within a week or 2 and then it is safe to download.

I have had just the opposite experience. Never a problem and I download them as soon as they are available.

Are you sure this is correct? I can't remember ever having an issue with an iOS update. All updates have been Beta tested prior to release and I find them very reliable. Once an update is released it is not changed until the next update which is usually a much longer time period than 2 weeks. Just my impression!

I agree that the releases are generally very stable… but there have been a view bugs over the past year which were not caught in beta testing, which prevented usage of the app. These didn't effect large numbers of users, but when you can't use your app, several days can seem like an eternity. I think Stephen was one of those users (if my memory is correct).

Yes...it is correct.  I am glad you are not having a problem but I sure do.  I don't understand why I do have so much trouble.  Last January's update came and I dowloaded on my IPAD and promptly went oversears--the first time I had gone without my laptop.  When I got to where I would be giving presentations, the Ipad kept crashing.  I was left with nothing.  This was pretty catastophic.  The same thing happened again in September, I think it was, only at least that time I wasn't half way across the world.

Now, I could deal with the crashing.  What really annoys me is that Logos knows about the problems BUT DOESN'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT THEM.  When I was overseas trying to fix my crashing, I called the Logos help and they talk to me like they never heard of such a thing and knew nothing about any crashing problems.  But when I went to the Forum I found out that many people were having crashing problems and that Logos would be putting out a fix shortly.  Now why didn't Logos Help know that?  Why didn't Logos put the problems they were having on their website or in the blog or send an -e-mail to let users know?  If I had known, I might not have downloaded in the first place. Or if I had I wouldn't have spent hours over several days trying to fix my app and mobile device when there was nothing I could do about it. 

Also, I was told that they couldn't fix the app in less than a week because Apple wouldn't allow any changes to updates for a designated amount of time--I think 7 days.  Which I don't know if I really believe. 

So my real beaf isn't so much with the crashing or unforseen problems...But with Logos because they should realize that many have become dependent on their system in personal study as well as professional.  When it fails, they fail.  Why can't they post somewhere when they are having problems or planned shutdowns so that the users can work around them. 

A similar problem occurred a couple months ago when they took down their computers on a Saturday morning (I think it had something to do with switching to Logos 5).  Unfortunately I needed to use the system for a message that afternoon.  Needless to say, I was in a real jam again.  I am sure the shutdown was planned...WHY CAN'T LOGOS LET US KNOW?  They can certainly send us an e-mail everytime they want to sell us something.
