2 The Atlas Tool is clickable in the mobile app menu but opens the web app to make use of it.

3 The mobile apps can't create Collections but can make use of them.

4 A few features, such as the Concordance Tool, require a functioning Internet connection.

5 Corresponding Highlights and the use of Labels in Highlighting are currently only supported on desktop.

6 The ability to set a Linkset to Follow is currently only supported on mobile.

9 Prioritization of books can currently only be done on desktop but it is used on mobile and the web app.

11 The web app exposes the inline reverse interlinears but not the ribbon; the reverse interlinear is not visible on the mobile app, but the mobile app utilizes some of the tagging.


What Devices are Supported?

As the mobile device marketplace moves forward, we are striving to keep all Faithlife mobile apps up to current standards. This may mean that certain older devices become unsupported over time. To ensure your device is supported, please verify that it has the most current possible operating system updates.

If your device is up to date, the most recent, supported version of the app, will be available in the App Store or Google Play Store (also the Amazon App Store for Kindle Fire HD users).


Regarding Internet and Device Storage:

Logos mobile apps are highly dependent on your internet connection. Mobile devices often have much less storage space and processing power than traditional computers, so our app “streams” your library resources and search results to your device from our servers. Resources are not stored on the device by default, but you can download resources for offline reading; even so, you must have an internet connection for searching the entire library, Passage Guide, and Bible Word Study.

This makes the Logos Bible app a great choice for taking your study on the go; however, if you plan to be offline for an extended period (like on vacation, or going into the mission field in a developing country), or if you need the most powerful study tools, Logos Bible Software on a laptop would be a better option.


How do I choose which tablet to get?

The Logos app will work on almost any iOS or Android device (including Amazon’s Kindle Fire series), so it’s really up to you what you want. Consider these factors:

  • Screen size and resolution
  • Processing power and hard drive storage
  • Your budget

For more help choosing the right device for you, we recommend searching the web for “tablet buying guide.”

Can I use Logos on an e-reader?

E-readers are popular with book lovers because the black-and-white “e-ink” screen simulates paper, which is easier on eye fatigue, readable in sunlight, and gets excellent battery life.
For various licensing and technical reasons, we can not export Logos resources to other formats. However, there are a number of Android e-ink devices coming to market that will run our Android app. For help finding the best device for your needs, search or post about e-ink in the Android app forum.
