I suggest you ...

        Does anyone know: Will this feature be available in Logos 6?

      • Jan BarrowsJan Barrows commented  · 

        This would be so much more convenient working with the Kindle. Really looking forward with the combination of logos and kindle.

        I started testing this feature today. It is truly fantastic. Once setup, sending books to my Kindle is incredibly easy, content conversion is fast, and I'm thrilled to see that all of the linked Bible references available in Logos are exported as footnotes. With a touchscreen Kindle, I can simply tap any Bible reference and the referenced scripture pops up in a dialog. This is truly well done.

        For the release version, 1) will there be a UI to help with setup? 2) will it be possible to change the associated kindle email address? Both of those would be nice-to-haves; neither are critical.

        I've never been more excited over a new Logos feature. My library just became a lot more valuable. Thank you so much for making this happen.

        Thank you for this good news. And when possibly is this going to happen?

        I don't understand why we can't export all the books to Kindle which are in our Logos library.
        We've already purchased them, after all. I would like to read them on my e-reader. Reading on an LCD screen strains my eyes.

        I installed the 5.3 Beta 3, and cannot find the export option listed anywhere in the "export" dialogue box. Where is it?

      • Michael GrinderMichael Grinder commented  · 

        Just tried out the beta and the book I tested worked well. It appears that only public domain books can be exported which is understandable. I hope some of the publishers will allow their books to be exported as well. It would be nice if books that could be exported to Kindle were marked on the website so that we know their status before purchasing.

        I'm not going to vote on this as I've got a workable solution, but I have some input I'd like to share. I've purchased an e-ink reader called Tolino, rooted it, installed the Logos Android app, and copied my entire library on the external SD card. It works like a dream for casual reading as well as Bible study.

        So why not take the idea an entire step further. The Android apps already exist. And there are suppliers that develop custom specific reader devices. I could imagine that it might be worth it for Logos to produce their own reader device.

        I want to be able to use audio on books i buy on my ipad via kindle app.

        I would like to be able to read my books in the Logos library on my kindle.

        I use my Kindle App on my iPhone all the time. It would be so helpful to have Logos products available to download right onto my Kindle iPhone APP! I would definitely be tempted to buy more Logos products if it were that easy to download and listen to them on my Kindle iPhone APP.
        Thanks.

        I just purchased a Kobo and would love to have access to the Logos resources on it!

      • StefanStefan commented  · 

        Please, go ahead!

      • FrankFrank commented  · 

        I would consider buying a logos made epaper ereader!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Yes, this would be excellent.

        Support for kindle reader please.

      • ScottScott commented  · 

        for me working in a sensitive country, having it on my kindle would be great!

        As a technical writer, I make continual, intensive use of a computer all day long, five days a week. As a part-time seminary student, I spend still more hours on my computer at home. :-(

        Of course, I realize that in 2014, there’s no other way to do my coursework. Still, it would be nice to be able to read my Logos stuff away from that all-too-familiar device that seems to have taken over so much of my life! Sure, an e-reader is still a device, but it is different enough so as to be a break from the computer and related devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.). :-)

        I am seriously considering the purchase of a Logos package, but the lack of a viable option for reading on an e-ink device is a serious deterrent. Please make this available very soon!

        I am considering a Kindle, but won't buy unless I can access my Logos library. You seem to be getting lots of support for this, so I hope you will do it soon, if you haven't already.
