Navigation & Menus in Resource View

Because of the limited screen size on mobile devices, the Logos Bible! App uses a ver minimal interface in Reading view. This doesn't mean we're without options, but they may not be immediately recognizable. We'll discuss accessing the different options in this article.

With a resource open, swipe your finger Left or Right to turn the pages. This is the most basic way of navigating within a resource. There are more options in the Resource Interface.

When you swipe Down, the Resource Interface is revealed. You'll find several other options here.

We've color-shifted these icons to be more easily identified in this article. Their exact appearence may be slightly different in the app.

Menu

Open the main Menu, to change books, perform searches and access other features in the app. Because of the large amount of information in this section, we've separated it into its own article.

Contents

Navigate the table of contents by Chapter, Verse, Page, etc. Your exact options will vary by resource, depending on what appears in the table of contents. This is a good place to go if you're ever unsure about what books or chapters might be available, or if you're just having a little trouble remembering how to spell Ecclesiastes.

You can also enter a passage, page number or headword in the reference box to the left, or drag the slider at the bottom of the screen.

Quick Actions

Perform a Passage Guide, Comparison and other action based on the current reference without leaving the resource view. This will save a lot of time you might have spent navigating the main Menu.

You can access even more actions by swiping Up with your finger while reading.

Favorites

Save the current location to your Favorites. Favorites can be browsed later in the main Menu, or on the Logos Bible Software application for Mac and Windows.

View Settings

Open the View Settings panel, where you can adjust text size, color scheme and other visual options. You'll find a few extra option in the main Menu, under Settings.
