Logos Bible Software Launches Vyrso: Watch Out Amazon

Logos Bible Software’s not resting on their laurels with Logos 4, Logos 4 Mac, their iPhone and iPad applications, Biblia.com, and the soon-to-be-released Proclaim. Logos is launching yet another new service coming soon. It’s called Vyrso, and it’s a new way for users to purchase and enjoy reading Christian eBooks.

Vyrso is a new, online Christian eBook store that allows people to purchase their favorite Christian eBooks, and read them anywhere, from the specially-created Vyrso apps on mobile devices, to Biblia.com, to even Logos 4 and the Logos mobile apps. It’s the perfect place to get your hands on your favorite Christian living and Christian general-reading titles.

I can see Vyrso easily taking on competing Bible bookstore sites that offer Christian titles in electronic form (in print form as well), and while I’m sure it probably won’t directly take on Amazon (although I know I said “Watch out Amazon” in my title), for those of us who’ve used Amazon as a source for reading Christian titles, if Vyrso begins to offer a better selection and more flexibility by being integrated into Logos, I can see it lulling over some users to this new platform.
