I'm trying to get a few friends into Verbum, and introduced them to both the Android/iOS app and the desktop. However, it appears that you can only access the free app titles from within the app itself.

Is there a reason for this? I can see a marketing reason for it, but I can see a better marketing reason for allowing access to all books associated with one's account. The lack of consistency is creating frustration, and I'm losing the opportunity to show what Verbum can do, and how much they'd enjoy using it.

Most of the items you have on the device if you were even wanting to install them to the device for offline usage would tell you that a licence is required for this. Faithlife makes available these items free of charge in the cloud for people to get a feel for them and use them as they like there. but until they are paid for  they cannot be installed on the desktop. Now one thing that could happen is the With the account they have set up  on their devices you could go and purchase (free of charge)...

Faithlife Study Bible

Lexham Bible Dictionary

Lexham English Bible

Connect the Testaments: A One-Year Daily Devotional with Bible Reading Plan

Book of Common Prayer (1979) Sunday Lectionary

Book of Common Prayer (1979) Daily OfficeLectionary

These are all free resources.... the problem is none are specifically catholic and the Lexham Bible does not at this time even include the DeuteroCanonical books (a catholic edition could easily be done since The Lexham English Septuagint has the required books/sections already translated). But it is a way to get people on their computer trying out Verbum getting a feel for it's working). My sister in law was a catholic youth minster and used a Bible without the DeuteroCanon since her priest preferred her to use the RSV and the only one she had was a protestant edition.

Thanks, Dan!

Those are great suggestions... I'll give them a try and see if I can get them hooked!
