With two upgrades launched over the weekend (one for the desktop (4.5) and one for iOS (2.0.1)) Logos Bible Software now allows you to take notes and highlight passages in your iPhone or iPad. It also allows you to synchronize the notes from your desktop into your mobile app. That means all of the note files you have created in your desktop version along with any highlighting will now be available on the go! This is a big feature and one I have been waiting for for a long time now. Now work you do in the office can show up on your mobile device and visa versa.
The new mobile app also comes with 41 free resources. This is a great deal for folks who are not already Logos users. Logos users have access to a vast majority of their electronic resources from their mobile app already. Some sources are not available yet due to copyright restrictions.
But all is not rosy just yet….
Logos announced that they had to disable note and highlight syncing FROM your mobile device temporarily due to a last minute problem. Your notes will sync from your desktop to your mobile app with no problem but any notes or highlighting added in your mobile app are stuck there until they provide ann update. I would expect that update very soon. Here is the “official” statement from the Logos blog:
NOTE: Uploading new notes and highlights from the iOS app is temporarily disabled. (Your notes and highlights will come down from the server, though.) We’re working to resolve this issue quickly and resubmit to the app store. If you have already installed the update, do not delete and reinstall the app; wait for the updated version to arrive in the app store. (This message will be removed then.) If you haven’t updated your iOS app yet, you may want to wait until this message is removed from this post. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Even with this current limitation this new feature is a great addition and makes the Logos app and software more interconnected. Check it out.
