Taking Notes and View Scripture is a Pain
I really enjoy using Logos on my computer. I use the iOS application to keep track of my prayer list, do my daily scripture/devotional reading, and review bible study notes before bible study. One major things keeps me from giving this application five stars. It is essentially impossible using my old iPad (4th generation) or even my new iPad Pro 10.5” to simultaneously take notes and review scripture. This is a HUGE drawback. If you try to review surrounding scripture, it closes (and saves) your note. If you are doing a public note, you CANNOT edit the note after it saves. iOS now allows me to use the ESV bible app with the Logos app so I now can (finally) not have several bibles out during worship services (I look like I am working on a term paper each Sunday morning). Logos should allow me to take public notes while using their application by default. I cannot imagine a circumstance using an iPad where you want the note to freeze your reading materials.
Some annoying issues
From my iPad:
When trying to select a text where the highlight turns blue, the page turn. So difficult to select the text without the page turning.
Also can’t go to other passages if I have low internet, the bible books won’t load. But other bible apps load with no problem.
Further, The notes are very difficult to edit. That’s because the window the notes are in gets in the way from scrolling down. All of this may sound difficult to understand so I hope you can decipher what I’m trying to say.
Finally, I have inserted a lot of notes into this app, now I’m afraid and don’t trust that this Logos app with retain it, that it may one day delete them. One of the reasons is because I see my highlight, at times, go in and out with no reason.
The Logos Bible! Getting better but can always improve.
Logos please please fix note taking. It feels like taking notes back in the early 2000s. The app makes you leave your reading and takes you off to a different screen. It just feels very outdated. Also it would be nice to know when you created a note. Like have the note with the date on the side of the note. Other than that this app surpasses every other bible App in the App Store when it comes to bible study and accessing a huge library of resources. Nothing else has the tremendous amount of resources as Logos does. You have to try it to believe it. The Logos team just keep out doing themselves. The app keeps getting better with every release. Do not hesitate to get this app.
