  • Most Powerful Bible App

    by Joshua C Rystedt

    *Updated: The recent update to 4.0.6 rendered this app unusable on my iPhone 5S running iOS 7.0.4. However, deleting the app and reinstalling in fixed this issue. - I am the youth director at my church and I use Logos 4 on my MacBook Air and own an extensive library. This has made this iOS app an indispensable tool for devotions, study, and lesson preparation. I can now access my entire library anytime and anywhere on both my iPad and iPhone. If you are already a Logos user don't think about it - just download :P. If you are not a Logos member, don't plan to be, and only want a simple Bible app get YouVersion. YouVersion is easy, simple, and has an extensive selection of translations.

  • Awesome

    by the.magnet

    App is simply great.

  • Very useful

    by Study the Bible

  • Great program

    by Jody Triunfel

  • GREAT!

    by Sharrels

    Great App! This is the App I do my daily Bible reading with. God is Awesome!!

  • Highly recommended

    by Mrs. Brio

    I find this app very valuable that I use it daily. I keep this app on my home screen for easy access to all my Bible study tools that are in one place, along with the books I read. So very convenient to use no matter where I am. There are so many good things to say, but here are a few that I truly appreciate: (1) The syncing capability that whether I use the desktop version or my iPhone, my notes are all synchronized; (2) Using Bible commentaries with my study that are heavyweights content-wise, yet are light weight-wise as my iPhone. How cool is that?

  • Love this software

  • Love it

    by csebree

    Love it. There's a learning curve because of so many navigational tools. I love being able to read and study while waiting somewhere. It is truly amazing to have my library in my pocket. My favorite feature is the split screen. This is a typical Logos product - first class.

  • Excellent App

    by Jeffob

    Very powerful tool. Very well thought out.

  • Best Mobile Bible Study Resource!

    by lml424

    I bought the Logos Bronze package for my computer about 8 months ago. This mobile app allows me to use all of the great resources in the library and is great for on-the-go Bible note taking, word studies & commentaries.

  • 5 star

    by RobJay92

    Best Bible app out there!

  • Great App!!

    by Olayville

    I love this app! The morning and evening devotional is the first thing I read when I wake up and the last thing I read before I go to bed. It's a great choice if you choose to download. You won't be disappointed.

  • Does just about everything the PC version can do!

    by onetimetwice

    This is just amazing. You lose almost nothing from the computer version to the iPhone version. You just have less viewing space, that's all. Excellent app!!!

  • Bible (by Logos Software) Updated 9/2/13 Review

    by JJMFe

    Logos "Bible" is getting easier to use. Simple one button with pop up menu to switch resources, i.e. decide what you want to do. Slowly becoming more intuitive as it evolves. I do like the passage guide button, and I am learning how to download frequently used resources. Slow when relying on wifi or LTE to load resources. (actually LTE isn't too bad) . This developer group always pushes the envelope whether in computer study software, or phone/tablet apps. They're always trying to do something more powerful than the hardware will allow, but they keep working on it till they refine and simplify, or the hardware catches up. I'm a Logos Libronix user since computer version 2.0

  • Outstanding!

    by Student of the word SDA

    Although there are a few improvements that could be helpful to me, the overall usefulness is convenience is great!

  • Logos

    by Ephraim 71136

    Tremendously wonderful app, groundbreaking interface, it has everything you need to study GOD's Word.

  • Wonderful

    by Waycross45

    It is so great to have so many Bibles available. I try to read the Bible through each year using a different translation. And also when reading my HCSB i may need another translation to truly understand a particular verse.

  • God sent!

    by DivineDiva

    Many thanks for your extensive app it allows any one who desires to seek out God's word with confidence. Keep up the good work

  • Bible app

    by CEEson

    I have been using Logos for a long time and have grown to love the Logos App for iPod. The application is very easy to use and is an effective tool for sermon writing, Bible study, research, devotional, and even for word study. I totally recommend this App to anyone who is looking for an electronic Bible App. Try it, you'll like it. It's the Word.

  • Great app...except for one thing

    by Kharahlyn

    LOVE this app, but hate how every once in awhile the commentary I have does not match which verse I am reading in the Bible - I use the split screens. Other than that little frustration, this is an excellent Bible app!

  • Different, but great.

    by Slimmy jim89

    I am more use to using the computer version, but this is a great addition. Keep up the good work guys

    Quick and easy tools. This app and it's parent company know how to make scripture come out and guide your desire to find the living God.

  • Great app.

    by Tosbuns

    I find it very helpful in my personal and corporate bible study.

  • Best in the market

    by Jesus is Lord7!

    Logos is the best in the market. It does take somewhat of a learning curve to learn the details and the in's and out's of all the program. There is a plethora of knowledge to give you accurate information for the new Christians to the seasoned pastor. All brings glory to the Lord Jesus. Use it for the Lord and bringing everyone to the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus.

  • Great resource

    by jaredcoe

    Good compliment to the full desktop version. It's great to be able to do word studies and have a huge library at my fingertips. I have started using it for daily reading and love that it syncs across all my devices. Highlighting is much improved and it gets better with each version. This is the best version yet.

  • Great tool for biblical learning

    by Mo Ingram

    Awesome tool and keep the updates coming. I think the mobile app has been awesome because the updates have been getting better and better. They also don't crash the app. Rev Maurice Ingram

  • Logos is excellent!

    by BennieDB

    All my electronic resources available at my fingertips...awesome!

  • Outstanding

    by Yeshuasman

    Logos is a great program. The logos app allows you to sync your logos library to your mobile device. It's a very intuitive app that brings the Word of God to life on your IOS device.

  • Great

    by Hskdjdhaoaoehrofjdjdisoa

    Hopefully my good review will stop the alert to write a review from popping up every time I open the app...

  • Good

    by jmbrasw

    The ability to download more translations for offline use would make thus great. This is the only app I've found that includes cross-references. Even better, you can click on the ref. and see the verse without leaving the text you are reading initially. But if you want to see the ref. in context, they've made that extremely easy as well this is a great app. Get it now!

  • Sunday school teacher.

    by Bjkggt

    Bible technology at it's best. Recommend it to anyone. All my study resources at the tip of my finger.

  • Love the devotionals

    by CeeLouise

    I love how there is not just one devotional per day but they offer a devotional for morning and night. Keeps me on top of it !

  • Bible

    by Jpgarka

    Very good. Blessing to have it.

  • Love this bible app

    by GlennPBrennan

    I love that you search for a passage by book, chapter and verse. Other apps have only book and chapter. I also like the reading mode for page turning rather than vertical scrolling. My one suggestion is to provide the 1984 NIV bible for Logos 5 users.

  • Very good

    by PapermakerPedro

    The app works well and I like the available different versions for deeper study. I would like to be able to have more stored for use without an Internet connection.

  • Best

    by Terry Mott

    Having most other mobile Bible software, I personally prefer Logos hands down.

  • Perfect

    by BobbyUlr


  • I use this one

    by Triangle Vintage . Etsy . Com

    I like how it will pop up the reference verse when you tap it in the same window of the passage you are reading with option to go there but doesn't go there automatically

  • Amazing power!

    by CadMan1371

    Incredible tools and resources for deep-dive Bible study with synchronization to the desk top program. Very nicely done indeed.

  • Great Resource

    by J Frink

    This is a great program for my bible study. Logos allows me to have the bible at my finger tips when ever I need it.

  • Superior!

    by Flynn74

    What can I say? It's Logos. Superior app! I use to use Bible Works, but it has been years. Logos is nothing short of awesome.

  • Very helpful

    A lot of great resources beyond the many Scripture translations. Very good app.

  • <3

    by A J Quick

    Love it!

  • I love it!

    by crandally

    The app version of this program is awesome. I use Logos 5 on my computer and usually use my computer and iPad at the same time to study. The app itself is extremely useful. This app and my email app are probably the only apps I use daily.

  • Excellent software!!!

    by Mike in Camarillo

    I haven't found anything that compares to Logos. You can creates bookmarks, cross-references are easy to use plus you can easily go back to where you were with one tap. And, there are companion books that yo can use in conjunction to your reading that gives insight into the scripture. The software allows you to have them both open on the screen at the same time. I would definitely recommend it!!

  • great app

    by desert digs

    love that it has cross references at a touch of the hand. I use in teaching bible study. still like the hard cover NIV study bible but this one is nice. I wish it had more versions (namely NIV).

  • Outstanding!

    The next level for those pursuing to find a deeper level of understanding within God's word.

  • Mike n Ramona

    The available studies are awesome. Very good flow and able to look up verses and words. Highly recommend. Would love to be able to know how to add the locked books in the Faithful Bible though. Keep spreading the Word.

  • Wonderful

    by mattfuller85

    I might be able to come up with improvements if I thought hard and long enough but the truth is that this is just a wonderful program.

  • Perfect except for one thing...


    Allow me to sync my prayer lists from Logos 5 software like I can with my notes and highlights and I'll bump it to 5 stars.

  • Very helpful

    by a.chem

    I use this app to do inductive Bible Study. I mostly use the NASB. It is very easy to mark and to add your own personal notes. I enjoy the ease of going from one section to another. I have not explored all the abilities that the app has but throughly enjoy it an would purchase again.

  • Great App for Scholars on the Go

    by Brent Dirks

    This is a great app for people on the go. My only complaint is using the Greek text with morphological text but that's just because I'm used to my laptop.

  • Logos

    Requires a GOOD internet connection to maximize usage, but because I have that, I love utilizing Logos on my iPad. Sometimes it's easier than utilizing it on my computer.

  • Awesome

    by Fx good times

    Logos is awesome bible software, i have never seen anything like it and really not much to compare it to. The big plus is that it is in an app for ipad and iphone. Wow! Amazing! Keep up the good work logos. :)

  • Simply simple

    by Pastor JAD

    I am still learning about this program and discovering how simple it is. I frequently carried my laptop to keep up on my studying away from my office, now I just use my phone with all it's features to get done what I need to until I get to my PC. It's just great.
