Well - this is the tool they've given us to voice our opinion. I just created a suggestion

I'm happy to see conversations about this here, and I also hope that faithlife begins to notice ereaders as a viable option.  I'm also a Onyx Boox T68 owner, but I'm disappointed with the quality of the device.  I guess that's the price of being an early adopter. 

When I upgrade to Logos 6, I will try the send-to-kindle feature, but I like having the ability to highlight and put notes in Logos from the ereader.

I think I'd be happier if they had a more accurate touch screen and more application space. Overall I'm happy it serves the purpose. What would you like to see improved?

Me too. I can't be bothered with the inefficiency of having my highlights in another place where they are less useful!

I have many of the same problems that people have in the Amazon reviews here

Kevin,

Are you aware of any solution for those of us that need to roll back to the previous version in order to have functional e-readers again?

Thanks!

Since the Faithlife 4.4.x Android apps require Android 4.0 *and* hardware accelerated graphics (which E-Ink devices might not have), we're looking into creating a download site for version 4.3.9 of the apps.  

Note that newer features implemented in future versions of Logos Desktop and/or the mobile apps will *not* be implemented in 4.3.9.

For those who may be thinking of buying an e-ink device to use with Faithlife apps, let me point out that the Boyue T62 works just fine with 4.4.6 and gives a better overall user experience than the Onyx T68. The Boyue is smaller (6 in. display) but it has more room for apps and data and, with a little tweaking, very good battery life.  It also costs less than the T68.  Onyx now offers the AfterGlow 2, which has similar specs to the T62. 

I wonder if there is any way to know what percentage of Faithlife customers use e-ink devices. Whatever the percentage may be, I hope that Faithlife can keep us in mind. Yes, the send to Kindle feature is great for reading Faithlife resources on a Kindle device. But that's not as satisfying as being able to work with resources from within a Faithlife app!

I have uploaded my Verbum 4.3.9 apk to my Dropbox site. I don't know if it's legit to paste a link here. If it is, I'll do so.

Anyone know if the newer Onyx BOOX Afterglow 2 can handle the newer Logos Android release without showing a black screen?  Thanks!

No black screen issues and I believe it is now available on Amazon. Check out my review here https://community.logos.com/forums/p/97340/671222.aspx#671222

Shall I wait for this download site?   I've got my eink reader mainly for the Bible softwares, though OliveTree & CBD reader still can be used in my eink device, portion of my books(around 3800) are in Logos, do hope that Logos can be use on it.

Blessings,

Nit

Will this work on a kindle paper white? if so, how?

No, this is an Android app that runs on the Android operating system.  The Kindle PW uses a different operating system. The closest you can come, if you have Logos 6 on your desktop or laptop, is that you can send individual resources to your Kindle to read them there.

Today I was trying to open one of my commentaries, Baker Exegetical Commentary on Acts, to find out that my T68 with Logos app 4.3.9 won't display this commentary.

Does this mean I'll have to buy another e-reader to keep reading my books/commentaries?
If so, do you have some suggestions for e-readers supporting the new Logos for Android app?
