Hello:

I have small laptop for my holidays. It's only 32Gb HDD, and isn't usually available.

Is there an app for PCs? Or maybe an old version of Logos? I just would like to download several resources, the same way the Android app works.

Thanks!

Hi Manuel

Sorry but this isn't available on PC.

Do you have the ability when away to access the web app on line - app.logos.com ?

Thanks, Graham.

If I only had permanent wifi connection it would be great. Or if there were a way to fully preload the resources I need in the webapp, to be available offline.

I'm wondering about downloading an android emulator...

That is not possible,

Choose carefully. They can be difficult to install, and make sure it supports Android 5.1 (ideally 6x) to support the Faithlife/Logos mobile apps.

I don't know if you can still download the app if it's not in your library. It's no longer supported for sure.

Alternatively, I'd suggest to invest $50 into a low-end Kindle Fire. It's not very powerful for graphics, video etc. but just great for reading.

Thanks!

The PC app seems to be no longer available. What a pity! Is there any other place to download?

Thank you for the kindle suggestion; in fact I have one but the laptop's screen is quite bigger.

With Microsoft releasing the new Surface Go device, I wish Faithlife would write an app for the Win10 environment (even if it is an extra purchase as mentioned here https://www.logos.com/product/50060/windows-universal-bible-app)

Good to knowSmile I've just placed my bid. But it seems it will take a long time before it is developed.

Thanks!

It  will never be developed. The platform is dead.

That's so brutally honest it could almost be a haiku! ;)

It could be alive. I'd be surprised if they didn't already have an internal React Native/Electron version of the web app running (which would allow running the web app as a native app on iOS, Android, Window Universal and Windows, OSX respectively, sortof. simplifying a lot). Throw in a few features for downloading & using resources off-line... They may even be calling it Logos 10 and Bible 8...

One way to do it is to install BigNOX, an Android emulator, and use Logos on that:

Thank you for all the answers.

It is a pity that the bible PC app that is listed at the Microsoft store is not avaiable anymore. Sometimes people download software and make it available elsewhere. Maybe somebody has a copy.

I don't think you can use it without owning a license.

Maybe it's wort a try to ask FL for a license through customer support.

I've just asked. They say it wasn't an app but the 'old version of the Logos 7 Basic (free version)'.

If it's any consolation for you:  it wasn't very good. I had the misfortune of owning an Acer Win8 tablet for a few months and used the Logos Windows Mobile app, which was one of many disappointments it hosted. I resorted to the app because L4 ran awfully on the poor little thing.
