I just purchased and android tablet, (Galaxy Tab 4 8) and it does not appear that Logos supports any bibles with Strongs numbering system offline. If I am wrong I would be delighted if someone could please explain how it works. I have looked through the forum posts for two days trying to figure it out. Even Olive Tree software has this feature for price of $10.00. I am very surprised and very disappointed that it is not supported in Logos. It is really not clear in the Logos Android App page what features are supported offline. It seems to me if I have the room on my device for the books, the app should use them.

Thanks

Anticipate resource license purchase is needed for offline use.

Christmas sale => https://www.logos.com/christmas includes ESV for $ 5.00 => https://www.logos.com/product/1587/english-standard-version

Faithlife offers 30 days for refunds.  After purchase, would need to download Bible resource to mobile device before could use offline.

Thankful for Faithlife offering free online access in mobile apps to many resources.

The majority of "look-up" features in the Faithlife mobile apps are designed to be used when online.

So, the Bible Word Study guide (which I guess is what you are using to see the Strong's information) is only available when online.

There have been many requests for more offline functionality but that is how the app stands at the moment.

The "Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament" (available at https://www.logos.com/product/8569/lexham-greek-english-interlinear-new-testament-collection#001) does enable disable of Strong's numbers when offline but not linked lexicon lookup

Thanks Graham

It really doesn't not makes sense to me, but thanks for removing all doubt.

To Logos staff, I would say... I would certainly be willing to pay a small fee to get some scaled down version that was self contained and could be used with as many resources as I could fit on my mobile device, like E-sword or Olive Tree do. So now I am going to have to go buy their software so I can get the Strongs number of texts to look up the information in my Logos resources.
