How much does this amazingly awesome app cost?

  • The Logos Bible Software app is available for free at the App Store.

Do I have to be a Logos customer to use the iPhone app?

  • No. Our application is free for anyone to use and can be downloaded from the App Store.

Will the Logos Bible Software app run on my iPod Touch?

  • Yes. The app will run on any device running iPhone OS 3.0 or later.

Do I need to be connected to internet for the app to work?

  • Yes and no. You will need to be connected to the internet via your cell phone service provider or Wi-Fi to access all the features and resources of the app.  With the release of version 1.2 we offer limited offline reading support. To learn how to make a title available for offline reading, please watch the tutorial video.

I'm a Logos 4 customer. Will I be able to see all my books in the Logos Bible Software app?

  • On the day we launched the Logos Bible Software iPhone App we had nearly 3,000 titles for the iPhone. Since the launch, that number has grown to over 4,000 titles. We currently have about 10,000 titles available for Logos 4 which will be released for the iPhone as we secure rights and convert titles. To find out what titles are currently available, read this forum post.

How do I share a verse on Twitter or Facebook?

  • When reading a Bible, simply swipe up and tap "Share."

How can I "bookmark" something I'm reading?

  • When reading, simply swipe up and tap "Add to Favorites." To view your favorites, tap "More" from the bottom navigation and then tap "Favorites."

Is there a list of all the titles that are iPhone compatible?

  • We currently have a text list of compatible titles. In addition to that, you can use the search bar on Logos.com to search for a specific title. If a title is iPhone enabled, an iPhone badge will display on the page.

    Can I read my books offline?

    • With the release of version 1.2 we now offer limited offline reading support. To learn how to make a title available for offline reading, please watch the tutorial video. To download your resources to your device requires an internet connection via your wireless carrier or WiFi. This feature is only available to customers with a Logos 4 base package.

    I'm a Logos 4 customer and I'm looking for (insert book title), but cannot access it from the iPhone app. Why not?   

    • We have either 1) not secured rights from the publisher to release the title to the iPhone app or 2) have not converted the title to be iPhone compatible. With over 10,000 titles in our system, both steps of the process take some time. 

    How do I delete a reading plan?

    • On the home page, swipe your finger across the reading plan you want to delete. Press the Delete button.

    What is the product roadmap?

    • Resource display enhancements
    • Notes
    • Highlighting
    • Search enhancements
    • Other cool stuff I can't tell you about

    When I touch and hold on a word, I get the wrong information. What's up?

    • If you have the book downloaded for offline use, remove the book (flip the switch to Off) and download it again. The downloaded book is out of sync with the server's reverse interlinear data.

    Ryan Burns:

    Do I need to be connected to internet for the app to work?

    • Yes. The Logos Bible Software app does not store any Bibles or books on your device. You will need to be connected to the internet via your cell phone service provider or Wi-Fi. 

    So it won't work on an iPod touch outside of a hotspot?

    Correct. But did we mention it's free? :-)

    why not charge for it and let us have access to your library and read the books offline.

    What's the likely hood of downloadable books in the future if the Iphone app becomes insanely popular?

    another thread says they are looking at offline, but its not so simple, it involves the publishers rights and permissions etc...

    Jon Rumble:
    I guess the obvious question is - while some of the features obviously require net access, will future updates bring the ability to download bibles or other books to the phone itself for offline reading? Otherwise if eg you're on a plane, the app becomes unusable...

    No rest for the weary... :-)

    Yes, we did realize this would be the first question. And offline access is in our plans. 

    But a combination of issues -- the amount of content, the desire to not have to charge you twice (at the behest of either the publisher or Apple), and some technical concerns -- caused us to put this off.

    (It's not hard to store your books on the iPhone. It's hard to implement our search engine, data type comparison system, data type parsing/rendering, cross-library searching for Guides, text comparison algorithm, etc. on the iPhone. We'll get there, but we thought you'd be happy to get some basic reading and searching going first. By offloading to the server -- where we can share code we built for the desktop app -- we can offer a lot more power.)

    Also, keep in mind that some users have literally gigabytes of content, and this Internet-based solution allows you to work with every bit of it that publishers allow (we're still securing rights -- the list will change constantly) without having to explicitly download or manage the resources.

    all I really care right now is being able to settle in at night and read on my....I mean my wifes Ipod Touch while my wife falls asleep.  I should be able to do now...except I might need to update her to the touch's 3.0 software first from the sounds of it.

    Bob... I would be more than happy to be able to read stored books without all of these extra features you mention above.  Just being able to read my books offline when I am out and about would be great... I can save some of the fancier features for my desktop.

    Since this is just a "face", can you make it a web application available to any phone with a web browser?  I agree with this decision as storing the books isn't a necessity for me.  I would like to see this available for all other phones that have web browsers.

    Okay, I am still a Logos 3 user, (have to secure funds for the upgrade) I have signed in on the iPhone app, will I be able to look at the books in my library, or will I have to wait until I upgrade?

    I would like the iTouch to be able to read a Bible offline.  I would also like it to beable to take notes offline that sync back to my computer once I come on line.  It would be nice to also have some limited function on a basic commentary, dictionary and Greek/Hebrew helps.  Very much like I can now do wit Olivetree program on my Palm.  Or to be able to select what I take with me off line based on the amount of memory I have (like I may sync all my notes to my iTouch).  Think Docs to Go for a Bible program.  Docs to Go does not have all the funtionability of Office, but you get what you need on the road and it is in sync with what you have in the office and if you make a change it updates what is in the office.

    Thank you so much for your informative answer, I know you guys are very busy. I seem to have most of what you listed above, minus the following items: #'s 8,18, 20-24, 26, 27, and 29-31. These will probably show up when licensing is obtained. Again, thank you all for your awesome effort and gift to the iPhone community!!!

    How do you get the iPhone app to sync with changes that take place on the regular Logos 4? Do any changes that occur in a person's particular regular Logos 4 automatically become saved and that information is sent to the iPhone over the internet?

    No. Logos has them all on their servers. They will send them to you via CD, if you really wan them. But there shouldn't be a need to do this. BTW, this includes all your licenses, even those from Nelson, Ages, etc.
