  1. Simple Offline Guides and Lookups

    Offer *basic* guides and lookups when *offline*, including:

    - BWS - simple headword lookup based on selected text or typed in text (spell corrected and converted to lemma) in dictionaries, lexicons, encyclopedias while reading bibles; simple dictionary lookup for all other books.
    - Topic Guide - simple headword lookup based on selected text or typed in text (spell corrected and supplemented with synonym finder?)
    - Passage Guide - simple lookup in commentary of a given passage.

    The above features would only access books which have been downloaded to the device. When a guide is run, it could check an index…

    • Default downloaded resources to external SD card

      It is possible for apps to default to the external SD card for the app data. Please make this available or default as there is limited internal space available. If not making it the default, please make it an option to have resources download to external SD Cards.

      • enable read aloud or text to speech like in the desktop app

        For the benefit of people with visual impairment or other reading difficulties make the logos mobile apps great at text to speech or read aloud.

          • Tabbed Resource Panels

            It would be great to have multiple resources open at the same time in single or split view panels accessible through tabs. This would be similar to the desktop version.

            • Fully support VoiceOver text-to-speech!

              Please add/re-add VoiceOver support! This is the quickest, easiest way to allow people to have instant text-to-speech features!

              Logos should take notice from Kindle and how well they have supported VoiceOver. It seems to me that Logos used to support VoiceOver in Containers (up until the latest 4.4.0 release in which now it is broken) but not Lines. I would love to see Logos support not only Containers again but even lines so that you can tap anywhere on the page and it will start reading from that very line, just the way that Kindle does.

              VoiceOver is not just…

              • Time to make Logos a full featured mobile application

                The increasing power of mobile devices means the gap between mobile and desktop devices is diminishing rapidly. It's time to make a full featured Logos mobile application with the same feature set as the desktop application. The demand is there and it would be a game changer!!!

                • Passage List for IPad and Android Device

                  I would love to be able to read my Passage List on both my iPad and Android Devices. When placing Passage List in my Favorites it does not allow me to read them.

                    • Support e-Ink for Android eReader

                      e-Ink tablets are amazing for reading Faithlife resources on. They offer screens that are very easy on the eyes and readable anywhere from sunlight to a dark night. These devices also have great battery life. At the moment Faithlife doesn't officially support the use of these devices. As one of a growing number of people to use these devices I would like to see these devices actively supported and catered for (my review here https://community.logos.com/forums/p/97340/671147.aspx). These are two suggestions that would do this:
                      (1) support physical page turn buttons and
                      (2) offer a theme like "sepia" or "low light"…

                      • Enable sync of Visual Filters

                        I love the visual filters in the desktop version. I use them frequently. I wish they would sync like my highlights to my android tablet.

                        • Integrate Dropbox, Box, Google Drive Support for Personal Books/Files

                          There has been much discussion about importing personal books into Logos and the discussion usually centers around intensive storage requirements on Logos servers so that these resources are available across platforms. I recommend the ability to import .epub, .mobi, etc files from a cloud storage service such as Dropbox into the app. Similar apps exist such as Marvin, etc. Logos does not need to account for extra storage and we get our personal books IN the app.

                          Additionally, an desktop import tool (built into the desktop app) that takes an open source ebook and converts it to a logos file…

                            When on my iPad and Android Phone, I usually only care to use the resources I have downloaded. It is a minor annoyance having to find the resource I have already downloaded among all the other resources.

                                Bible Commentaries arranged in volumes should automatically sync to the correct volume when using your Bible in the ipad like it already does on the PC/Mac. ie if you are in Gen which corresponds with vol 1 of the commentary and you change to Rev which is volume 7 the app should automatically change to vol 7 in the split screen view

                                  I received an Apple Pencil for Christmas and I am very pleased with the many versatile functions it can fulfill. It would be great to be able to underline, or even make notes with handwriting in the Logos ios app.

                                    • filter by collection, series or type, in library view (they already come under search)

                                      Searches can be limited by collection at the moment but the library view cannot be. I find the library view very difficult to explore due to the number of books. If the view could be filtered by collection, series or type, it would help enormously.

                                        The Library can be sorted by Title, Author, Rating, Recent and Rank. The Library can be filtered by series and type, but not by collection. I’m re-opening this one for the collection filter suggestion.

                                      • speed up page turns

                                        I would like it if page turns were sped up. Many mobile apps give you the sense that you are actually turning the page as the animation is in sync with your gesture. There is a noticeable delay between the gesture and the result in logos for ipad and android.

                                        Speeding up would enable a more natural reading experience and flicking through pages would feel natural.

                                          Add a command to the Swipe-Down overlay to "Sync to Furthest Page Read" that functions like the Kindle command of the same name.

                                          Currently, for example, if you open a book on a mobile device, read to chapter 2, put down the reader and then start reading on the desktop, reading to chapter 5, upon returning to the mobile device you are still at chapter 2.

                                          A command to "Sync to Furthest Page Read" would move to the furthest location from the pool of all your devices at that current moment in time. It's not the furthest location that you…
