Today we released Glo version 1.4.0, which includes a lot of behind-the-scenes enhancements, but a few that you can see as well:
Enhanced Scripture Search Results – Now when you type a scripture passage into search, you get improved article and media results. Well-formed searches such as John 3:16, Gen. 3:1-20 and Mark 4 all yield enhanced results.
Refined Topical Lens – A new simplified topical structure enables you to find what you’re looking for more easily. The Topical lens has new topics and links being added all the time, making it a living, breathing tool relevant to your life.
Animated Maps Controls – Select maps have voiceover and animated arrows to help bring the stories to life. New controls on these animated maps allow you to start and pause as you wish, which makes viewing and presenting easier.
Minor Bible Reading Plan Enhancements – Improvements include better pace calculations, refined controls and chronological ordering when creating a plan from the timeline. Learn more about creating customized Bible reading plans.
Performance Enhancements – This release includes a more accurate history to better track your back/forward history and history pulldown list, improved virtual tour performance and overall speed performance.
