Can I somehow load or access my Logos personal books on iPad and android tablets or phones?

The mobile apps were not designed for that. And we have been told in the past the feature for legal reasons as well as logical reasons would not be happening. Many of us had hoped for a change of mind but seeing as they just did a major revamp of the mobile apps and have confirmed that personal books will not becoming to the mobile platform I think I can say for the immediate future there will e no personal books. If you must have them you could install Accordance and make them into user books there... While not quite as advanced as Logos personal books you have nearly as good functionality there. And you can install them to your iOS device...possibly on your android device too (I am not familiar enough with how far along the newly released Accordance Android app is. I have a few personal books I want to have with me in a usable format (hot links for scripture references) that i have installed on my Accordance iPAD/iPhone.

That is really too bad.  I like using the personal books feature for school syllabi and discipleship resources I make.  There is so much potential there but it is severely reduced by not having access to it on my tablet.  It forces me to use my computer, which isn't always possible.

I agree. I do my main study on my laptop but for church and bible studies I use my iPad. This would be a desired feature

Welcome to the forums.   And the docx files behind all the PBB can also be converted to PDF and thus transferred and at least we can read them on the mobile device. [[One major problem with transferring PBB to mobile is that they would need to be transferred to FL servers and that might open up copyright problems for FL as too many PBB are of copyrighted works]] [but if that is a problem for FL on PBB to mobile I wonder why they still allow the 'upload' for PBB]

And also welcome to Levi Penner

That's a created problem by FL. Other Bible software allow loading from your PC. Even PDFs can be loaded as well, of course. And indeed, my own Bible software loads from my desktop (well, duh), along with an embedded PDF viewer. And you can't argue I'm such a genius (or other Bible platforms).
