Why would I go to Biblia.com or use it, if I already Logos?

You'd use it if you didn't have your computer with you, but wanted to look up something in your library.

Also Biblia.com is available to any device with internet access, including those that don't have Logos installed.

I suppose one could also use it with Logos on a separate screen, instead of extending Logos across two monitors (or more) for those that have more than one monitor.

(I almost never use Biblia.com)

Rich is right that it's helpful when you're on a different computer or device.

Personally, I use it more often for the sheer speed. Opening Logos and running a search can take several minutes, even if you're just trying to find a quick reference. Opening Biblia and finding a reference or even running a search is far under a minute (even with a slow connection).

The full Logos experience is fantastic for longer research sessions, but Biblia is far more efficient when trying to get a quick peek.

I find it very useful on my Chromebooks!

I agree. I too have a Chromebook and have greatly appreciated being able to read and look things up online. Also, don't forget about bible.faithlife.com!

I was using the Logos app on beta and it kept crashing. So biblia.com was a very good back-up until I changed over to the Logos stable version. 

Cheers.

I wish Logos would come up with a Faithlife app in the Chrome store!  It would take 5 minutes....

They know about the new ability for ChromeOS to run all Android apps. Kevin Byford said he tried it and the Logos app crashes immediately. It requires Google to make the porting process support the kind of coding they did with the Logos Android apps. I wish they would make it work.

Making Biblia work as a Chrome web store app would be little more than adding a link which you can do already following this how to.

Yes, it is certainly possible for Logos to make the Android app run on Chrome if they want to:

Point taken...oh well.  I hope that Logos continues to improve Biblia for Chomebook users, then...

In any case, I made my own Chrome app for Faithlife.  There is already one on the Chrome Store for Biblia.
