i was wondering. Like olive tree, will I be able to purchase a bible, say, on android under my account and download it on other devices like ios? I don't want to keep buying the same stuff for each device I own.

Welcome to the forums - yes it is a buy once from Faithlife and use on all Faithlife/Logos/Verbum platforms.

Thank you. I have been a long time user of Olive Tree and I am loving the simplicity and features of Logos, especially on my iPad. Please don't take my response here as comparison. Both are fantastic apps and I think I am liking Logos more with the awesome Guides feature. It is remarkable, and I am hoping for an offline version of this as I cannot always be connected to the internet. Thank you again for the welcome and your answer. God bless you :)

There can be licensing restrictions though. Sometimes, resources for the desktop app can not be used with the mobile apps. It's a rare case though. Still, if you purchase a Bible specifically for mobile use, you might want to check that it's licensed before you do so.

But in general, if you purchase a resource through the iOS app, it will be available on the Android app, and vice versa. My understanding is, that both mobile apps are licensed for the exact same resources.

Thank you for your response. when I went to purchase a title, it wanted only a credit card. I was unable to use my google play credit like I can on other apps. I would like to buy the NKJV Bible and have it on both my devices, but I can't as I do not have a credit card. I've been using olive tree which allows you to buy content with Google play, so I thought maybe Logos would be a similar app. I'm really liking Logos, but some of the features like Guides feature, which is great, is only available offline. I do understand this, as I'm sure the developers are focused on keeping the size of the app down, but I would love to be able to download this resource to use offline. My church doesn't have wifi thats available to the members so I am unable to use this feature as its online only, or read my nkjv as it is offline only. It leaves me rather stuck with olive tree which is not functioning well at all since the update that wasn't ready for the public. Thank you again For your responses. :)
