We hit a major milestone this week when our iPhone Bible app was downloaded for the 100,000th time. Launched only four months ago, the Logos Bible Software app has received praise from The Unofficial Apple Weblog, The Apple Blog, AppShouter, and countless individuals who have left comments and feedback in the app store. Which reminds me, If you currently use the app and have never rated the app in the app store, please take a moment and do so. Let us, and others, know what you think of the app.
With 100,000 downloads in just four months, we’re thrilled that so many people are taking advantage of this free download to enhance the study of God’s Word. If you haven’t grabbed the free iPhone Bible app, what are you waiting for? Perhaps you’re someone who got the app a couple months ago, but hasn’t looked at it since. If that’s you, give it another look. Make sure you’ve got the latest version as there are some great new features we’ve added, like offline reading.
If you want to take a look at the app, here is a video demo we put together:
While we hit the 100,000 download mark, here are some other interesting stats from our first four months:
- There are over 25,000 users weekly
- Peak usage is at 8:00 AM PST on Sundays
- 74% of users are on an iPhone, 26% on iPod touch
- “love” is the most common search term
Along with these stats, we have noticed that about 23% of people don’t sign in while using the app. If you’re one of them, you’re missing out! Like the video mentions, signing in to the app with a free Logos.com account gives you access to an additional 31 Bible study resources and a more rich app experience. Also, if you’re a Logos 4 customer and sign in, many of the titles you own are accessible via the app.
Also, we recently added some functionality to our product pages on Logos.com and now you can see if your favorite titles are available for the iPhone. Simply go to a product page and if the resource is iPhone enabled, you’ll see this icon:
Now, before the comment section gets filled with everyone asking when we’re coming out with an app for the BlackBerry, Droid, or any other popular mobile device, let me just say that we don’t have any firm plans at this time. We do, however, have a solution that works on all web enabled devices. Pick up your phone and check out http://library.logos.com. While it is still under development, it will allow you access to Logos from any mobile device.
