Hi,

I upgraded to IOS 8 about a month ago, maybe a week less than that.

When I first updated, flashcards would simply crash and give me a home screen.

after a few weeks it stopped doing that, and I thought 'all is well' although it didn't want to pronounce the word right away and after several button pushes would pronounce part of the word, or multiple overlaps of the word.

But since a few days ago I no longer have an audio icon to tell it to pronounce the word. at all. I have not updated flashcards.

I have an I phone 4s with IOS version 8.0.2

anyone else having this problem?

Not happy at all with Apple right now.

Why are you unhappy with Apple? Why haven't you updated the app?

The missing audio icon is a known issue with Flashcards and iOS 8.x and we don't yet have a fix.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

IOS8 has wraked havoc on my iphone.

It now overheats, wont respond to the touch screen, sends itself into zoom mode, SIRI comes on without prompting. This is the second time Apple has really botched an upgrade IMO.

The last time for me was unrecoverable and all of my data was lost. They told me because my Iphone was backed up locally on my computer (the only place it does a full backup) and not the cloud, that they couldn't help me with data recovery.

I have been anxiously awaiting Yosemite, but  now with this, I am apprehensive.

I am beginning to believe that they are somehow changing the third party interface rules and not giving them advance notice so they could release update at same time.

IDK, maybe I'm just over-reacting. I used to be unafraid to upgrade within a day or two or release; naow I am waiting a week or two to see what everyone has to say.

Weird. I haven't heard of anyone else having these problems. What phone do you have?

Does anyone know if progress has been made (by either Apple or Logos) on fixing this?

I hope this can be fixed soon, that would be really nice! I hope it's not a very difficult issue to fix.

This issue was fixed over a month ago in version 1.1.2 - are you running the latest version?

Oh, that's interesting! Well maybe I'm just not doing something right then. I do have the latest version of the flashcards app.

I made a custom set of cards myself, do I have to use a certain column or something for the audio to work? I don't see the audio icon on my custom word list.

This is strange... just to be sure can you install the app again from the Apple Store and see if the audio icons appear?

Just for clarity, I am making a custom lbxvl xml file, since I was not able to find any other way to import a large amount of words into word lists along with the sections. And then I am using the "Import Word Lists" command in Logos 6. In my xml file, I am using the column "display" for the hebrew lemma. Should the column be titled something else? With them under the column "display" in my xml file, it shows up under the column "Card Front" in Logos once it's imported. If I switch to using the column "word" in my xml instead of "display" then when I import it into Logos 6, it shows up under the column "Lemma" but then the app shows blank cards. Either way, there is no audio icon. I notice there is a column for Audio in the Logos 6 software. I noticed also that if I make a word list from a hebrew text in logos, the audio icon shows up on the flashcards app for that word list, but not my custom one. When I look at that word list though, the audio column is still empty, so I am a bit confused. Perhaps you can help me?

Ok so this is what I'm trying to do even more specifically. I am trying to make a Vocabulary Word List for the Logos resource Student’s Vocabulary for Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic and I want the sections in the word list to match the sections in the Logos resource.

I've attached my XML file. It imports good and everything works perfectly at the moment, except for the audio. If you want I can send you my .lbxvl xml file so you can take a look at it if you have a chance.

Here is a sample of what my xml looks like at the moment:

<section>
<title>4K</title>
<entry>
<display>אַחֲרוֹן</display>
<gloss xml:lang="en-US">(adj) behind; (adv) last</gloss>
</entry>
</section>

Here are some screenshots in the app.

When I use the "display" column in the xml (imports as "Card Front" column):

When I use the "word" column in the xml (imports as "Lemma" column):

Notice no audio icon either way.

I'm not a Word List expert - you might ask on the Logos Desktop forum.  It appears that if the audio is missing on Desktop it won't appear on the Flashcards app.

Kevin,

It seems that the place Logos sends people for word lists to use with the flashcard app, https://faithlife.com/introductory-grammar-vocabulary-lists/documents does not contain audio.  So how does one get the audio into these files to make the most of the flashcard app?

Kenneth,

Word Lists created with Logos Desktop can be synced to the Flashcards app. As a simple example, please see this screencast - you can create your own.  If Word Lists available from the link you refer to don't work for you or don't have audio, I'm not quite sure of the answer at the moment, I'll ask the dev team.

Kevin,

Thanks for your answer.

If I create a word list, say for Philippians, I can get the audio to show on the desktop and in the flashcard app. On the link that I provided has many files for word list for the Greek and Hebrew Grammars that Logos sells.  Those have no audio when you open them on the desktop and thus they don't show audio on the flashcard app.  So I would like to know how to get the audio to show up on the desktop and then it will sink to the flashcard app.

Thanks for checking on this.

Kenneth,

there's more than one Faithlife group sharing word lists - one you may want to look at might be https://faithlife.com/word-lists-for-flashcards/activity 

The source for the word lists for introductory grammars are Libronix vocabulary lists that (I think always, but may be wrong) don't have audio. AFAIK, there's currrently only a manual way of adding it, and I know some users have done this for initial chapters of Mounce's BBG in yet another group https://faithlife.com/basics-of-biblical-greek/activity and another user is currently doing it for a Hebrew grammar.   

Hope this helps,

Mick
