I've just had a pretty frustrating morning converting to Kindle or ePub using Word/Calibre, so I'd certainly like this feature.

Yes please!

For me logos has become a tool to do referencing work, rather than reading work, since it's just too painful to read long text on (compared to my kindle).  I don't care about notes on kindle, since I used it for reading, not referencing.  

Please give us this feature!

I'd be even more interested in a Bible app for Kindle that had all the current features....

Grace & Peace,

Kindle's aren't capable of running apps like Logos, are they? NOTE: we aren't talking about the Fire, which already runs the android app.

No. Most other e-readers are, though, but only if you root them. Unfortunately, though, the Logos Android app won't run even on rooted e-Readers because it requires too high a version of Android.

This would be awesome!  Right now, I print the book into .txt and email it to my kindle.  Would save a step -- and possibly look better (a .mobi file instead of .txt).

Also, it's time consuming, and sometimes crashes Logos, because you have to select each section of the book (which can be TONS!).  Though sometimes I only want to send a piece of the book.  It would be nice to at least have a "select all" box.

Mark, could you elaborate on this? I was thinking about purchasing a Kindle Fire for the purposes of reading kindle books along with my Logos library. Are you saying the Logos kindle app doesn't work on Kindle Fire? Thanks.

No, I'm not saying that. I will run on the Kindle Fire. I classify the Kindle Fire as a tablet, not an e-reader, so I wasn't including it in my statement.

My preference - reference books be on the computer; books meant to be read (not for reference) should be in print form because it's easier to read and easier on the eyes.

So...if Logos is going to implement send to Kindle function, that would dramatically change my reading practices. Furthermore, I'll probably get more non-reference books from Logos so I could read it on Kindle. At this stage, I stay away from purchasing non-reference books from Logos for this one reason - difficulty in reading it on a tablet for a long-period of time.

So, I would say, "Yes" to Kindle!

Thanks Mark....I was just searching the forums looking for any comments on the kindle stuff in considering a purchase. Thanks for clarifying.

Yes... but for many people it isn't an "extra" choice, but the "only" choice. For example: A Kindle is $69. An iPad (my preferred device) is $399 (for a mini). Also, there are people who prefer an "eInk" reader, which is more "natural" and has the added benefit of being visible in full light. I don't have a Kindle, and if I could only have one device, it would be an iPad... but if Logos goes through with this, I would probably pick up a Kindle during black friday.

Exactly, I have a laptop for heavy duty work, and a cheap Kindle device for reading. I also agree with Mark--my reading has gone up since purchasing the Kindle, and I would like to be able to read through some of my Logos books on that device.

Suggestion: It would be wonderful if Logos would develop their own e-ink tablet that was fully functional. Just like Amazon has their own proprietary device (Kindle). The functionality of the Logos mobile app on the iPad or Andriod, combined with the easy reading of e-ink would dominate the Christian book market.

Why? That would be a quick way for Logos to go out of business. There is no way Logos could compete with Amazon, so why bother? Much larger companies like Barnes & Noble are on their death beds in the attempt.

I'm not going to go out and buy another device. I have kindle. I have a computer for Logos. If I had money to throw around on devices, I'd get a hand-held device like a Tablet (e-ink or not) to read on the go. 

However, if there was a way to read Logos on Kindle, that would boost Kindle sales and perhaps give Logos some leverage.

That's not much of a market. It's been done before, Family Christian Stores came out with their own tablet, but due to economies of scale it wasn't anywhere near the capabilities of similar devices in its price range. In fact, I'm fairly sure that even Amazon sells Kindles at a loss and make up for that in book sales. Logos has nowhere near the market size (nor capital, I imagine) to sell an e-ink tablet at a remotely competitive price.

Tonya, are ~175 positive replies to a post on the forums (and 480 votes on uservoice) considered to be a good indication that users are really interested? Is this sufficient for Logos to go ahead and "invest a significant amount of time" on this feature? Appreciate an update. Thanks!

I would definitely be interested in a Send To Kindle Feature.

Thanks

Tonya J Ross:

Development is considering implementing a 'Send to Kindle' feature for resources in your Logos library.  

Before investing a significant amount of time on this item, we would like to assess user interest based on the fact that this feature would not support sending notes/highlights to or receiving notes/highlights from Kindle devices/apps (which is mentioned in the UserVoice request for this item).

Please let us know if you would still be interested in seeing this feature.


ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!!  I have been waiting for years for this one!
