  • Accordance Version:10.x

Posted 25 September 2013 - 09:43 AM

Recently, I began taking most of my bible notes within the Accordance software package on my MacBook Pro.  I was a little weary of using them in lieu of writing notes in my Bible, but have since been very glad I did. 

 

One area that I was particularly excited about was the prospect of being able to download my notes to my tablet and being able to teach and preach from my Accordance iOS app.  I was under the impression that if I touched my linked verses in my user notes on the iOS, that the verses would pop up, much like other instant details pop up in the iOS.  To my disappointment, my linked verses in the user notes did nothing when I touched them. 

 

I got in touch with a tech support person and they told me that this feature was not currently available.  He advised me to come to this forum to request this feature.

 

Personally, I think Accordance is losing a great deal of the tablet BIble software market share because of not offering better user notes functionality.  There are free programs that enable one to take notes with linked verses and the verses pop up that even some Accordance customers are using in lieu of Accordance's iOS.

 

I understand that there is probably a good reason why this feature has not been included.  I appreciate so much all that you guys do.  Overall, I have been extremely pleased with the software, but I would really like to see this feature added.

 

I've discussed this with a few of my preaching friends, and they would really like to see Accordance provide this feature as well and would use Accordance much more on the tablet for teaching and preaching if it was there.  This feature has probably already been requested, but I'm throwing my two cents into the hat for it as well.

 

Thank you for your consideration of including this feature.

 

Sincerely,

 

Torrey
