I spent years using Windows, then switched to Mac, but now back to Windows 10 which is an enormous improvement over anything I have previously used, and loving it.

I would really like to have a Windows 10 Phone app. This OS I realise has low usage in the USA, and more widely used outside the USA (that's me), but is a great platform and is now really fluid and nice to use.  It also is designed so that developers can share common code between the desktop and mobile and tablet devices.

In other words, there is NOT two versions, like one of iOS and one for MacOS.  It is unified, finally !

Isnt it great to see Logos customer support respond to your question....

Anyway, good choice on windows 10 mobile its a great os, none of the lag of Android but not stupid expensive like Apple either.  A good middle ground option.

I discovered last night that the web app works really well on windows 10 mobile (app.logos.com), to use this you have to have either Logos cloud or Logos now, but with one of those you would be able to access logos in a pretty efficient way through the Edge browser on your mobile.  Im hoping the good performance is something intentional on Logos part and not something that will deteriorate as the web app develops but for now it may be a very good option for you.

Thread => Universal Windows App on Community Pricing includes

Bradley Grainger (Faithlife):

If you'd like to indicate your interest in—and support for—a Universal Windows App for Logos Bible Software, place a bid on this new Community Pricing product: https://www.logos.com/product/50060/windows-universal-bible-app 

 

Your bids—no matter what price—really help us know the number of customers who would like to see a Universal Windows App become a reality, so please spread the word.

Windows Store apps were retired in Jan 2015 => Retiring the Windows Store apps so bidding on Community Pricing would help show Universal Windows App demand.

+1 Yes Thankful for Web App development, which can be used on many devices.

Logos web app => https://app.logos.com needs Logos Now membership or Cloud subscription.

Verbum web app => https://app.verbum.com needs Verbum Now membership or Cloud subscription.

Thanks William, but the options you suggest are more pay-for which is outside my limited budget :-(  I think I will look for another Bible company. I am very disappointed with Logos :-(

Does Biblia.com work on your Windows 10 phone ?

Biblia.com is free plus can sign-in for access to your resources that are licensed for mobile use.

Hi Rob I understand what you mean, more money just to use stuff can be frustrating.  I wonder if Logos would be willing to acknowledge the clear app gap they have in regard to windows mobile and allow windows mobile the use of the web app for their library for free? That would mean Logos does not need to invest in an app (in the short term, we still want one!) but can use the web app which continues to improve very well?.

An idea.

Rob if you are set on a company that also has a windows app the only one is pocket bible (Laridian) but their library is significantly smaller than Logos.

William.
