Ditto.  Windows Phones are up 4000% in sales from last year.  I'd love Logos if they'd let my Lumia 920 run...

I believe there is a Logos App for Windows 8.

Hi, Jim...

Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 are separate (but related) platforms. The appearance of a Windows 8 app is encouraging, and suggests that Windows Phone users might see an app in the future.

Two caveats:

  1. The Windows 8 app is still quite slow, buggy and rudimentary. I find it unusable. I would almost rather Logos have nothing in the app store than to tarnish their reputation with an app that's so clearly pre-alpha. Let's hope that when a Windows Phone app appears, it's approaching the same level of quality as what we find on other mobile platforms, and not an embarrassment.
  2. Apps that are developed for Windows Phone 7 will also work on Windows Phone 8. Apps developed specifically for WP8 are not backwards compatible. Since there's a significant WP7 audience (myself included), I'm hoping Logos will choose the first route.

We have an early version of a Windows 8 RT app in the app store now (BIble!), but we haven't had the resources to work on a Windows Phone 8 version yet.

We're also continuing to observe market share, and whether or not Windows Phone 8 gets a significant share of the market will probably influence our decision to invest, or not invest, more resources in this platform. Either way, a decision (and app) are probably many months away.

Sorry I don't have a better answer right now!

I can completely understand.

I have the Win8 Phone and the Surface RT. I love my phone, but I would much rather have Logos on my Surface! I know you guys are doing a lot and that it takes money to get these Apps going, so I just want to thank you and I look forward to the apps you do produce for Logos in the future!

Thank you for answering.  I know windows 8 is a new platform and it may take time for an app to surface (if it has enough traction).   I am hoping that there is enough growth in the Window 8 phone sector.

Hi!

My Lumia 820 is also waiting for Logos. I understand that the US markets are your primary markets and the WP8 is not so popular there as in Europe, but I hope there will be WP8 version for Logos sooner or later. Developing the Win8 metro version should help in developing the WP8 version too.

A month ago I changed my iPhone 4 for Lumia 820 with Windows Phone 8 system and am looking forward to seeing Logos on that. It is great OS and I am sure market will accept it very well. Logos should consider it very seriously.

Is Logos any closer to releasing an app for Windows Phone 8?

Folks, I've been a decade-long customer of both Logos (on the PC) and Laridian (on the mobile).  I've been following Logos' progressing in developing for the WP platform, and have now lost my support. This week, Laridian released their WP8 app, and it's all I need.

If the only thing you need is WP8 Bible application, fine.

I am a little bit more demanding Smile  I need one fully synchronized Bible ecosystem and my WP8 Nokia Lumia 820 should work well as part of that. I can't imagine to go back to the "stone-age" of using separate Bible programs on each platform.

I haven't found any other system than Logos being that fully synced ecosystem. I use PC laptop, iPad, iPhone and now I started to use Nokia Lumia 820 where I need to have just the same we have on iPhone or Android. I hope it makes sense.

While not as extensive as the Logos library, Laridian has a sizeable collection - not just Bibles in their ecosystem. Furthermore, they license across platforms (Windows, iOS, Andriod, and now WP). I was pleasantly surprised to see my key PalmOS licenses, from more than a decade ago, were still valid.

I sense that Logos is either counting on WP to fade away (forcibly converting users to iOS or Andriod), or those heavily invested in Logo to remain loyal.

 

Observing market momentum, I don't think WP will fade away. The longer Logos takes to release a WP product, the more it will cost them to regain market.

 

Right now, I don't believe there is a WP competitor in Laridian's class. I've tried most of the WP Bible apps, none begin to compare in interface elegence, feature-set, or library-collection.

I fully agree with you and also believe WP will gain much of the market soon. WP8 is just great platform. 

I used to have Laridian many years ago on my iPhone so it looks it grew a lot since then. Sorry for my wrong assumptions in the precious post. I understand your logic now. I hope however Logos will come with WP8 Logos application soon. I would really not like to leave Windows Phone platform for anything else. I have been using iPhone for years and still use iPad.
