I really like the new Reference Scanner in the iOS beta. Great idea and well implemented 

One thing I noticed when checking it out is that it doesn’t handle references that span multiple lines.

the first screenshot below is a portion of text I scanned (apologies for the rotation) where the reference to Psalm 139:17-18 at the end of the first paragraph goes across two lines.

The Reference Scanner results just show Ps 139:17 as below:

I don’t know how easy it would be to scan across lines but it would improve accuracy rates if possible

Thanks for sharing, Graham! Glad you like it. This is something we may explore in the future. 

As you begin to use it, I'd love to hear about the situations where you find Reference Scanner most helpful.

I just tried it by pointing it at my Kindle Fire, the tool I use to read books that aren't in Logos or the other Bible software I use. And it failed. Has anyone else used it on text in a screen? Does it work? It's also VERY slow. Here's hoping this gets great. I want to test it with a screen shot taken on my phone too. Has anyone tried that yet?

UPDATE: I just took a screenshot of the page in the Kindle app on my iPhone and then loaded it in the Reference Scanner in Logos Mobile beta and it worked great. Faster too, but still not fast.
