Logos for Mac

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!
