I have downloaded an app, Launch Center which has the Logos Bible app in the list and was wondering if the url scheme works with this. I see the logosres:// as the url and was wondering if and how any of the references listed on the wiki work with this app.  Presently it opens up the app.

I can't imagine that logosres links would work on iOS devices. Just for kicks, here is a logosres link to click on from your iOS device:

logosres:esv;ref=BibleESV.Col2.1;off=-97

Can you tell me more about the app? What use is it to you?

It' an app launcher that went on sale this week.  I didn't know if it was something that was worth the $3.  Anyways I downloaded it.  One of the features is that it allows one to create a group which is an icon on a screen and within that group create actions, using URL Schemes if the app supports them. 

I envisioned simple ones that would be shortcuts to a book or even within a book of the bible, or a function of a lookup in a dictionary.  Maybe something like using the text in the clipboard when in another app. 

It basically makes shortcuts and eliminates a lot of steps.  You tap and slide.  Here is the URL: There are numerous reviews and Youtube videos out there.

Your example worked, it took me to Col 2.1.  Now to figure out some of the other possibilities  Do you know where to find the codes for the resources in the library?.

Are you asking about creating logosres links? You create those by clicking on the "book cover" menu of the resource and clicking "copy location as url." You then paste the logosres into whatever app you want.

Thanks - That is what I needed.  To show what I have done, I have created a group called "James" which is what I am studying at the moment.  I have 11 slots to create actions.  So far I have a set of dictionaries that are tied to a prompt , so when I swipe to something like the NBD, I have a prompt to enter a headword. These look like this:  logosres:nbd;hw=[prompt]. This is great, because now I can lookup words in the dictionaries.

I have created some for the various commentaries by simply referring to the book and these look like this:  logosres:BSTUS80JASfor the Bible Speaks Today series on James.  I think these might be case sensitive.  

I have the app, Launch Center in the dock, so all I have to do is to bring up the app and then hold the finger on the group James and swipe to the desired resource.

I've been looking all night for a thread like this.

Have you looked into creating a note in the Logos app directly from an app like Launch Center Pro or Workflow/Shortcuts?

Here is what I'm thinking. The notes editor in the Logos app is P.O.O.R. and I generally do all of my other non-Bible study note taking and mind scribbling in Drafts 5 or in Ulysses. What would be amazing is if I could have a thought, write it down QUICKLY and then send it to a note within Logos (extra double bonus points if I could link that note to a scripture reference). Similarly, I routinely come across articles about specific verses while reading in feedly on my iPad or iPhone and there is no easy way to link that article to a scripture reference in Logos. I can do this in literally every other iOS app...except for the most important one, Logos. 

What this would also do is allow me to read in my physical Bible (which is my preference) and take notes in Drafts 5 or Ulysses as I go, and seamlessly send those notes to the appropriate scripture reference for later continued study.
