Logos friends, I have remained silent for years but this morning when I opened my Logos iPhone app and saw the horrendous new splash screen I think I might have died a little inside. For years I have watched this forum as people have cried out for an easier way to download, access, and interact with Logos resources inside the mobile apps. Everything from tabbed resources to font choices to a simple check box to differentiate local from cloud resources without having to type "local:" into the Library search box has been presented. Always the answer is the same: "under review", "considering for a future version", "not currently supported in mobile" or insert your own default answer *here*. Sure, the mobile apps are free and only considered to be an extension of the desktop software but I have invested a substantial amount of money into my Logos resource collection and as the world becomes more and more reliant on mobile technology I would love to see Logos, Faithlife, or whatever its called these days to get behind its statements about providing a fuller, richer Bible study wherever we go. So, my question is simple: has anyone actually made a suggestion on Uservoice.com or here on the forums that has been implemented by Logos on its iOS apps? I cannot recall any significant updates or functions added to the apps aside from the scrolling text view and an interface redesign to match the new UI guidelines for iOS 7+ in the past few years. Anyone? I love Logos on my Mac and it has transformed the way that I view Scripture and has brought me so much closer to God than I ever thought possible, but the mobile apps (all platforms) make me feel like I am working with nothing more than a tiny digital scroll.

Well - the most-voted for request on the mobile apps Uservoice site is for prayer list support and this is now available.

Wesley I feel your disappointment, and agree this update is not all I would have wanted. That being said it has brought significant new features to the app. Prayer lists were the most requested item, and the atlas feature is no small functionality. I do know how many people were clambering for visual copy but I am sure many people will like this feature. The User Voice is quite clear now the called for feature is personal books (that is not to say 100% that will be the next feature but that is the most requested). I hate too that for a more robust experience offline on my iPad I need to switch over to Olivetree, but for FL mobile offline is not a high priority. That said they have not left the mobile apps untouched, but are striving to add to them what people need. Those of us wanting more robust features offline or who want personal books or even those who want better citation options are just going to have to wait. Improvements are coming we just have no idea when.
