In addition to basic eBook functionality, it includes extensive resource linking, note-taking functionality, and linguistic analysis for study of the Bible both in translation and in its original languages. It is developed by Faithlife Corporation.

Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

Home Screen is working

Printing works

Indexing can be hit or miss (See Workaround list)

Video can work with major graphics glitches (See Workaround list)

What does not

Read Aloud

Indexing can be an issue (See workaround list)

Video (unless willing to deal with graphics glitches)

At times updating the application will delete all downloaded resources (keep an updated backup readily available)

Workarounds

For indexer - setting the indexer to Windows 7 allows completion.

For Video - changing the graphics from gdi to opengl allows video to
play - BUT creates a nasty graphical glitch bug with black boxes
covering portion of the application.

In relation to the deletion of resources upon update - I have found
that downloading the updated Logos Setup executable is much more
successful in keeping the downloaded resources. (Not 100%, but better
than the in app update)

What was not tested

Most everything tested, not all new Features have been tested, as I've yet to upgrade to a Full Feature Set for Logos 9

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
