  1. 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!!!

    • Ability to label verses with a keyword

      This would allow text to be entered to describe or give a verse or passage. Visible title without having to click on an icon to see he text would make labeling references much more meaningful

      • Improve IOS Performance and Speed

        When I need to look up a verse quickly, Logos Mobile is not the first Bible app I go to, even though all my purchased resources are here. Instead I go to another popular bible reader app even though it only gives me the KJV version. The performance of other apps is very responsive and the interface is much more conducive to quick verse searching. Please work on these 2 aspects of performance so that Logos is the ONLY bible app I need.

        • Focus on improving "Notes" in general on mobile devices, particularly iOS

          To name a few: the size of note windows are too small to be practically useful, especially on the iPhone; allow font size changes; enable links to scripture references; make recent notes more accessible. In general notes are fairly cumbersome and not very user-friendly in comparison to others.

          • 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.

            • make resources in series (i.e. WBC/Expositors/Calvin) scroll to other volumes to follow verse references

              this will allow easier navigation like in the PC version. Example: If I open a Bible and WBC's Genesis volume and turn on syncing, I should be able to navigate to Exodus and have WBC switch to the Exodus volume.

              • Allow us to turn off the "Bible Word Study" Panel

                There is an issue that makes reading with a dictionary, say the LSJ, a bit less than ideal.

                Here's how it currently works for me on the iPad:

                In split screen, when I choose a word in the text on the top panel, I then choose "Look Up" and then "Bible Word Study."

                Then, the "Bible Word Study" screen appears in the bottom panel. In there (the bottom panel), I press LSJ. The top panel then changes to the LSJ at the entry I'm looking for.

                So, as I understand it currently, the top panel will need to toggle back…

                  I would like to see two arrow buttons: one to go to the next scripture that your currently reviewing, or the other arrow button to go to the previous scripture

                  • Create "offline" collections

                    Similar to how individual resources are selected, allow collections to be marked as "offline". This makes it easier to customize the offline resources to the device.

                    For example

                    Phone:

                    Favorite Bibles
                    Favorite Lexicons
                    Favorite Commentary

                    Tablet
                    All Bibles
                    All Lexicons
                    All Commentaries.
                    Devotionals.

                      • Give access to saved word lists

                        It would be good to have access to word lists to help with learning Hebrew and Greek vocabulary. An associated flash card facility would also be good.

                        • Enable simple headword lookup for dictionaries and encyclopedias

                          My best dictionaries and encyclopedias are in Logos, but it's very difficult to quickly look up a headword across all of them. As it is, I have to perform a regular search in my Dictionary/Encyclopedia collection, but that returns all articles that *contain* the word in question, not just articles with that headword.

                          I would like something along the lines of the "lookup" command in the desktop app that either pulls the result from the highest-ranked resource OR, even better, gives me a list of matching articles in order of my prioritization.

                          • allow for annotating, underlining, etc. on the screen when connected to a projector.

                            I use a white board app when teaching - jumping back and forth between Logos (i.e. the Bible text) and the white board. What if we could highlight, or underline of circle, etc. - live on the logos screen itself? You can do it with an app like iAnnotate on PDFs, or with Click Tricks on a PC. Doing it directly in the Logos app would make it world class as a live teaching tool.

                              1. Show multiple levels of TOC with indentations, expand/collapse capability on the same screen (instead of having to drill to the next level screen by screen).

                              2. When going into the TOC, default to the current reading location.

                              3. Add page numbers and/or location numbers to TOC.

                                • Improve Gesture UI (Swipe left/right to open menus; swipe up/down to turn pages; touch & hold to scroll)

                                  On the Logos iPhone App, the swipe up menu and swipe down overlay could be combined into one menu, instead of the current two. (Some items could be moved over to the main left menu.)

                                  That way it would be possible to modernise the navigation gestures in the Logos App to:
                                  (1) Swipe right to open the current top left hand button menu.
                                  (2) Swipe left to open the combined overlay/menu.
                                  (3) Swipe up/down to turn pages
                                  (4) Touch and hold with one finger to scroll up/down

I have to open Logos, switch to the Bible, and then, finally, get to the right Scripture. When I go back to continue reading something after church, I must open Logos, find the resource, open the resource, and then continue reading.

                                      It would be nice to have a "layout like" feature on mobile devices, with the ability to create a different app launch point for each of these layouts. Then I could have a "bible" layout, a "reading" layout, etc., and open each one at the right…

                                          2) The header in the ipad app does not say the name of the actual text (as in the GNT) but only the title of the book (i.e., "Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts). The right side of…
