The idea of a reader app apart from logos was a great idea the only problem is that it is obviously just a cut and paste of the logos apps functionality instead of a truly functional eBook reader app. It has been around for sometime now and been updated a few times and we still have no bookmark function or efficient smooth paging or navigation as found in other eBook reader apps. I would rather be able to use these resources in my app of choice than have to use such a poorly designed one. Please mature Vyrso and make it more user friendly and eBook functional.

OK, Dennis, no offense. But please list the host of features missing and and the associated eReader.  So far we have bookmarks (which are a pain in Kindle) and turning the page.  

I assume there must be many more?

Before you get your dander up, I don't have  Vyrso, and just downloaded it so I could read my new Billy Graham Devotional (I also use iOS Logos but not for devotionals; that's a Vyrso specialty, since Dr Graham is not good enough for Logos.com).

1. I guess there might be some bookmarks somewhere?  Maybe bookmarks are banned ... you shouldn't be jumping around your Vyrso book! Logos thinks like that.

2. I went to the library to get my Billy Graham Devotional.  It was right there at the top.  Yahoo.  Unfortunately I didn't pick it immediately, and by the time I decided a devotional was in order, it was nowhere to be found. I typed in 'devotional' 'Billy' 'Graham' along with 'Hills'.  Those North Carolina hills were long gone.

3. Instead I had this 'indexing' bar (which I've not seen on my iOS version of Logos). In any event, everytime I tried another idea to speed my way to a devotional with Dr Graham, 'indexing' was in the way.  I'm not sure what was indexing; I had yet to successfully locate a book.  I had successfully opened one of the NT greek papyri. That wasn't exactly progress.

Eventually I switched over to the iOS Logos (which has same books; all 3,200 of them in my case) and sat down among the lilting smoke of the hills.

I didn't delete Vyrso yet; I'm sure there's a way to find Dr Graham.

Ok. After waiting awhile for the smoke to clear, I tried Vyrso again.  This time, indeed, Dr Graham was at the top and I quickly selected him before he could disappear.  Downloaded him!

Then I watched to see what would happen next.  Not much.  The 'busy' thing was spinning wildly at the top and the library showed 2 screens of books from my library. If I wanted one of those books, I was definitely good to go.

In any event, enough of Vyrso; all I wanted was a separate screen for the devotional. I've no idea what the idea of Vyrso was.  It does look like a chop of the iOS Logos version since you can read 2 Vyrso books at the same time (a definite requirement for Vyrso afficionados).

It has never claimed to be anything else.
