It has taken 22 builds, but Logos 4 Mac is finally operating like an actual Bible study program. The notes function still is not available, which means I still have to use a word processor to keep my notes, and it is still sluggish, but at least it is useable.
In order to get α 22.1 to work, I had to completely delete all of my Logos files from my Mac – even my Logos for Mac 1.2.2 files – but finally I have Logos 4 Mac working.
This is not to say I forgive Logos for pushing an alpha product on us, but things are starting to take shape. I’m a lifelong Logos user, and I really don’t care for the format of other Bible software – including online programs like YouVersion. Logos is designed for a ministry user, and that’s why I’ve always loved them. This whole alpha thing has bugged me (it feels like something Microsoft would try to pull) but I’m not going to jump ship.
In a previous post, I mentioned that I thought Logos 4 Mac would be a fully functional program sometime next year. I’m hoping that they will be able to at least get into the beta stage before autumn, but they still have a long way to go.
