I currently use the PC version and am tablet shopping. In the PC version I really enjoy the option of having both the exegetical view and the correspinding Bible verses and commentaries on the screen at the same time.  Does the iPad app have a similar feature?

if you mean by "exegetical view" the "Exegetical Guide," no, that is a feature only on the PC/Mac versions.  The iPad and Android versions do have the "Passage Guide."  Was that what you were referring to?

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I dont have my laptop in front of me. I am referring to the section of the home screen where it shows Bible text and if you drag your mouse over words, you get additional Greek/Hebrew info, and other things. To be able to see that and Bibole verses simultaneously would be stellar. My laptop will be croaking soon, so I am looking at replacement options. One of them is having a desktop and a tablet, as opposed to a powerful laptop.

That's called the "exegetical guide" in L4… that functionality isn't (currently) in the mobile app.

The mobile app is fantastic for reading, highlighting, and taking short notes while reading. I would not consider it ideal for "serious" study for any number of reasons including screen space, inability to use guides offline, etc. I love the mobile app and use it every single day… but it doesn't replace L4.

You can execute a Bible Word Study from any Bibles with a Reverse Interlinear, so you can access word info that way. Not as thurough as desktop but it does help.

Brian, using your ipad, and with a Bible open that has a built in reverse interlinear with Logos (see below for a full list), you can

  1. select your word of interest (say "earth" in Genesis 1),
  2. press on it with your finger to open up several options: copy, look up, search, share, highlight note. 
  3. Select "look up," which then gives you some grammatical information (text rendering, MSS original language, lemma, morphology, Strong's.  If you have a non-interlinear (such as the ISV), you will only see the Webster's definition for the English word.
  4. If you select Bible Word Study, a BWS will open in your other split screen viewer.  It looks like the Logos 4 Bible word study with the segmented circle displaying the semantic range.  Or, you can
  5. Select "search which opens the search function panel to your left, and you can search your library, part of your library (like collections), or you can perform a Bible search and search Bibles for occurrences of that English word.

You must be online for this function to work.  Below is a sreenshot of Logos interlinears.  Does that help?
