I just got a number of resources from the current 30% off library sale of Logos 8 legacy libraries and was planning to get more. However, when I try to open them, a message says they are not available on my desktop. I must either download them or view them on the web app, though they open perfectly on mobile. I stopped downloading resources because they take up so much space on my computer. Is there really no other option to use them on my desktop without downloading them? Yes, I did see that the descriptions say, "The Logos 8 Legacy Libraries reintroduce the classic libraries of Logos 8. This library is offered without features and datasets, making it the perfect standalone collection of resources to help grow your library..." So, does "without features and datasets" mean no ability to access them even as other non-downloaded resources are accessed? I suppose "standalone collection" means limited to certain parameters. Does this also mean the mobile operates like using the web app, which somehow accesses these resources differently, but the desktop does not contain that functionality to access non-downloaded resources? Thank you!
- Thanks for the speculation, too. I know the mobile app is written completely independent from the desktop, like two separate programs. But it would be a shame if the mobile had greater functionality or server access than the desktop just to handle text.
- We've never built streaming resources on desktop. We'd like to at some point, but we haven't gotten to it yet. What we introduced with Logos 8 is cloud resources, where you can choose the subset of your library to download for offline use and access the rest through cloud search. But to read them, you need to download them. The web app is exclusively streaming. The mobile app does both streaming and local.
