Logos for Mac

by Mar 21, 2009Tech0 comments

I just got this e-mail from my friend Jonathan Bolin, a Ph.D. student and teacher at Piedmont Baptist College and Graduate School. I asked him if I could share it with my blog readers (watch for his own blog coming out soon, perhaps!):

I got my copy of Logos for Mac. I told you I’d let you know what I thought.

Positives:

  • Much faster than Logos for Windows (both in starting up and in searching)
  • Ease in accessing resources (don’t have to start up Parallels)
  • Ease in searching

Negatives:

Several key features upon which I am dependent are not included in this build. Among others:

  • ability to write notes on particular passages of the Bible
  • prayer list/Bible reading schedule
  • visual mark ups

I’m still a huge Logos fan, but am a little disappointed with the Mac version.

I’m still running Logos in Parallels. Until BibleWorks puts out a Mac version (which doesn’t seem likely!) it’s easier for me to just keep my two major Bible software programs in Windows. I also can’t bring myself to pay for the Mac engine. Sorry, Logos! I too am still a huge fan!

Look out for these things in your comment spam (some apply to email spam, too), and you're less likely to be fooled by it (click image to see full-size): I don't really mean that Australia is weird, though I may find out this summer that it is as I take my first trip...
