Share downloaded resources between Logos and Vyrso apps
I am taking almost 20GB of tablet space to store two versions of my complete library. I could cut this in half if Logos and Vyrso would share downloads.
Additionally, people not doing a complete downloads would not have to remember which app has a resource downloaded since both apps would have visibility.

I understand that iOS doesn't allow this, but how about Android? Downloading the same Bible or resource for Logos app, then Vyrso, plus Faithlife Study Bible app is a space waster (especially since they only store internally and not to an external sd card).
iOS still doesn't provide the level of file sharing between apps that would be needed to implement this.

This post and the link that I'm including are oldish, but are we talking about sharing data as referenced in this link?
I'd love for the apps to use shared local resources. I need to fire up Xcode so that I can gain an understanding of this first hand.

[This is only an issue when you are not connected through wifi or you are not wanting to use up your data plan.] Yes, there really needs to be a way to do this. I am using one Logos account. I have all the Android apps installed: Logos, Faithlife Study Bible, Vyrso, Verbum, Noet. I do this so that I can have multiple resources open at the same time. If want the ESV available in each app without accessing the cloud, I have to download the ESV in each app: five copies of the same thing. Seems like there should be a way to designate within the app in which folder you want your download resources to be stored. Then, if you designate the same folder for each app, problem solved?

This should be possible with the updates made to iOS that do allow apps to talk to each other now.
Anthony, I think you've misunderstood the original post.
Resource files downloaded to the local device through the Logos app cannot be shared with the Vyrso app, and vice versa. If downloading all of your resources using Logos takes 10GB, doing so with Vyrso would take another 10GB because Apple sandboxes apps from one another.

Mine does share the resources. My Logos app has 9 extra books I can use while connected to the internet (like the HCSB, which I don't own), and the Vyrso was missing 8 titles I own, and I don't know which ones, but there was only a difference of those 17 titles in the two libraries, the other 2502 were identical resourses. I deleted the Vyrso app for this reason--and yes, it was offering to re-download any title I'd already downloaded for Logos, so I could see where this was going... each app has it's own setup, even when drawing on the same library from Logos/Vyrso.
Your problem is simple: Sounds like you are running two different accounts. You must not have known when you started using Vyrso that you could sign in there using your email and password already on file with Logos. I don't think they advertised the fact back then, but I tried it on a whim and it worked. Now they are letting people know they can access all their websites with just one account.
You should be able to call customer service and get them to merge the two libraries/accounts so you can just pull them all up on your Logos app (and on your PC Logos 5, as well.) The same goes for Faithlife and Noet, just use the one account.
This could also be applied to Noet

This is not possible on iOS as sharing folders between apps is blocked as a security measure by Apple.
