Important

Using this version will cause notes, highlights and favorites to be migrated to sync v2. To use these features again in Logos 4 desktop, you will need to be running Logos 4.5.

New

  • Notes
  • Highlights
  • Book covers view (iPad)
  • Library sorting
  • Inline footnotes
  • Media resource viewer (double-tap an image to activate)
  • Requires iOS 4+

Improved

  • New fonts
  • Improved Hebrew and Greek text on iOS 5
  • Favorites are available offline
  • Favorites folders are synced from the Logos desktop app
  • Favorites added offline are synced when online
  • Word info popover is scrollable

Fixed

  • Sharing via Twitter crashed on iOS 5
  • Stopped some memory leaks

Known Issues

  • Media resources that had been downloaded must be removed and redownloaded
  • Deleting a notes document on another device will cause a deadlock and require an app restart.
  • Tapping on “Read the Bible in a year” while not signed in, then tapping the “Sign In” button when prompted will result in a crash.

I have installed the new IPAD app and it is still not syncing the reading plan.  If there is anything else I can do to get it to work please let me know.

James - they have already said that there will be a minor interim update in the near future for the reading plans.

Hi James! Welcome to the forums. Sorry you are having troubles. 

FYI - Logos has undertaken a major initiative to update the sync infrastructure across computers & devices. It was decided that highlights & notes should be done first since it was a larger task. Reading plans are scheduled for a future update. Public beta testing is already underway for the changes to the desktop app (4.5a) and a private beta will begin shortly for the mobile app. The stated desire is for a "very short" beta cycle for this change, however, unexpected bugs / glitches with the new release may cause some delays. 

When the update is ready for the mobile device, it will appear as an update in the iTunes store (like this update did).

I just upgraded Logos on my iPad but it crashed right afterwards. I can no longer open it. The upgrade was to add notes and highlights. What do I do now? Sad

Sometimes a restart of the ipad fixes the problem. Or, you could redownload the program.

I haven't had troubles with the Logos update, but I've encountered it with other apps.

Did you delete the app first? Did you do a hard shut down of the device?

Hi, yes, I deleted the application first, including Vyrso that doesn't work either. After that I shut down the device, and then turned it back on once again. The next step I did was to  download both apps again, but got the same results.

I don't know what you mean by "hard shutdown."

Thank you again for trying to help,

2.0.1 crashes on its own after install while syncing.  Will not restart short of a fresh install, and then repeats same behavior.  Unusable.

iOS devices still have power running to them when they are "off." To turn the battery off, press and hold BOTH buttons at the same time for as long as 10 seconds or so. You may get an "are you sure" and a red slider. This turns the battery completely off. (By the way... if your battery is getting really low and you want to make sure you could make an emergency call, you would want to turn the phone off in this manner.)

This technique may or may not work for you. This has worked for several users, and has not worked for several more. Tongue Tied It is a simple procedure though, and worth a try.

Vance - First, welcome to the forums! Sorry you are having troubles. If you are willing, please try the following:

1. Delete the app completely.

2. Redownload the app, but do not open it.

3. Do a hard shut down as I described above.

4. After a minute, restart the device.

5. Open the app, but DO NOT allow it to download anything (i.e. it will ask you if you want to download your bible. click cancel

6. Try to just let the app sync for a while. You can keep an eye on the spinning wheel.

Thanks... I just tried this procedure and the problem remains.   After the initial crash which is apparently sync related, the app crashes immediately when I try to restart it.  Is there a way to find n older version to use until this is fixed?

Probably not. This is because of how iOS devices & the app store work. The only thing I can think of is if you had the old version on your computer and it had not been updated yet, you could do a restore of the device. You would be at risk of losing information for other apps as well.

put the device into airplane mode and try it... I think that you will find that this will clear up the issue, since from what we learned yesterday, many of the issues of crashing seemed to come from syncing... if you have the device in airplane mode it can not sync and then should run for you until the syncing issue is resolved.

Thanks but that means no wifi thus no ability to access any resources.  Your idea would work, i suppose, if I had already downloaded needed resources onto device before this problem developed.  unfortunately that is not the case.

Try putting device in airplane mode, start Logos, and then turn wifi back on. Should be able to download books.

Thank you for the very useful options, highlighting and notes that have been added.

For me, it was really worth the waiting.

Please keep up the good work.

I have been having trouble with trying to read my books since the update. Everything is shifted up and to the right so that I can't read the last word of every sentence. This makes it very difficult to read my reading plan every evening. Yes, I can guess what the word should be but it was working fine before the update.
