Im very new to all of this. I started using logos on my iPhone and I love it so much that I proceeded to download the free version for my Mac. My iPhone app has a bunch of books available for online reading. How do I see all these on my Mac? I know I can't view these offline on my Mac, but is there a way I can view them online like I can on my iPhone? If there is no way to do that, is there any place I can get these books for free? Im only using like 3 or 4 books, and really can't spend that much right now. Thanks! Really love what yall do!

Welcome!

Sorry, no. The mobile app comes with a number of resources which you can view online only. Those resources are only available to you on the mobile apps. Furthermore, each of the mobile apps has a different set of "free" books to utilize, so the books you would have in the Logos app will be different than the ones in the other (Faithlife, Vyrso, etc.) apps.

The only way to view resources on the desktop app is to acquire (purchase... even if "free") a license for that resource. It will then have to download to your device. No resources are viewed "in the cloud" on the desktop platform.

You can search both the Logos and Vyrso stores and filter your search by price, lowest to greatest. There are a number of free resources, but they might not be the ones you were looking for.

Alabama has given you some good information.

If you want to test out the Desktop version - and, if you are partaking in Bible Study then, I recommend that you do - why not try out a Study Bible?

Study Bibles come as two separate resources, the Bible and the Study Notes, these can be linked together and you can test out how notes, highlights and links work.

Then comes the expensive but really productive bit - a base package - then you need to see how much a month you can afford and buy the biggest one that you can sensibly get. That is when the passage guide, the Exegetical Guide and the Bible Word Study jump into life.

Sadly the publicity rather oversells the concept of tagging in books other than Bibles - while there are many and various and extremely helpful links that are live coverage is patchy and date of publication is no guide to coverage of links. Logos do offer a 30 day money back guarantee. The guarantee gives you a chance to test out a package for usefulness - I recommend a 30 day period when you will have time to really test it out rather than just dabble.
