    Logos Bible Software vs YouVersion opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    Logos is wonderful when it works. Installation is problematic on Windows 10. Sad because I have spend a lot of money on it. YouVersion is free and fantastic as a straight multi version Bible study tool, no ribbons and bells.
