Mobile app search interface: Improve search range filtering/resource selection
I would like a better thought-out way of selecting the resources to be searched in the mobile apps (both iOS and Android). Currently there is a very limited list of recently used resources to pick from. Occasionally I will see a collection on there, but I cannot find a way to search through a collection that is not already on the list. In my opinion, this is the greatest weakness of the current mobile apps.
For Bible searches, the solution is relatively straightforward: allow us to restrict a search by a range.
For Basic searches, I suggest a robust interface, not just a drop-down list, that allows us to enter search terms and check off resources and collections that we want to include in a search. The ability to search by series, publisher, collection, author, tags, and subjects would be fantastic. Of course, this is only a suggested implementation, and Logos developers may well come up with something better, but I felt I should offer a starting point. The end goal is that I'm able to refine my searches to include only relevant results.

I'd like to add the idea of viewing Collections on mobile. This will help with choosing what books to download. That will also help with the mobile searching.

It would be great if this "comment" app provided the opportunity for viewing all of one's post so as to have the to make corrections before submitting or, alternatively, provided the opportunity to edit one's post after the fact--like Amazon.com

Of all the ebook reader I own, this is the only app that does not allow the user to search directly within the title currently being read. Even the minor Logos competitor, Wordsearch, has this capability.
When I want to search the biblical text quickly, I have to use a different application.
I absolutely agree with the previous comment. However, consider the fact that the previous comment was made over two year ago without any response from the developer.
I find it strange that the most expensive ebook reader I own has the least functionality when it comes to searching the text. And,matter all, isn't that the primary advantage of e-texts?
My impression is that the developer has specific ideas as to how users are to employ the application and have little inclination to consider other points of view. Of course, the developer could prove me wrong, which I would welcome.
I heartily agree.
