Logos Bible Software just released the latest version: Logos 8.
While I haven’t taken a deep dive into all of its new features, I have noticed the following:
- A slick new design. I didn’t think Logos7 looked too shabby but the Logos team made 8 even slicker. Obviously, no one chooses Bible software primarily on aesthetics, it does make for a pleasant experience.
- It’s pretty darn fast. (Logos boasts that it’s 10x faster than Logos7.) Speed has never been a major issue for me with Logos but I did experience lags from time to time. Maybe it would be worse if my computer wasn’t so nice. While I haven’t spent a ton of time clicking around Logos 8, it does indeed seem faster. I don’t need Vin Diesel to convince me that fast is good.
- It’s chocked full of new and useful features. Logos bends over backward to make your sermon prep and Bible study fast, organized, and convenient. Logos will help you create a useful process, save your work, and even help you create slides for projecting during your sermon. One feature I’m excited for is the search filter feature (pictured below). A problem I’ve had owning so many resources is not being able to browse them easily. Now I can see search results in a list and also in categories. This simple but thoughtful feature shows that the Faithlife people care about user experience.
