And Accordance lets you put all your personal books on your iPhone/iPad.. you cannot do that yet with them (and no time soon either, although they will sync smaller personal books to other desktop machines you own). As nice as somethings there are the speed of their mobile app compared to Accordance is night and day.

Actually Dan, that is not quite true. You can upload to your road almost everything in your library. The only thing you miss are the sides and collections setting. But you can have almost your entire library in  the ipad and works exactly like Accordance does.

Sorry guys, but I have to say I find this unfair.

 

Accordance just as well got many online bugs and server issues when it introduced it's new wonderful upgrade feature. Something similar might come once it's updated to Acc 11.

 

Had Logos 5 for one year now, and really no bugs whatsoever. On the other hand, my Accordance crashed a few times and contains some few small bugs.

 

HOWEVER, none of this is bad. Both companies bring just fabulous things to the table for us to enjoy. I respect both parties that they dare to bring new stuff even when it means problems, bugs, issues and everything else. No risk, no reward.

 

We humans are fallen and to expect perfection isn't normal nor makes one happy  :)

 

EDIT: fixed some grammar

 

 I totally agree with this, Totally Unfair I have been using Logos for over two years without any major issues. No software is perfect and ALL will have bugs, even Accordance. So lets not start the bashing. Please. And Tony, far from glitter, Logos is extremely useful for Bible Study.  Many very happy thousand of Logos users do. In my experience those who complain about Logos have not care to learn it. Things like this bother me a lot. People, they are tools and they BOTH have the same end, HELP us study the Bible. Don't like it, don't buy it.  :angry: I think you guys need to be informed before making statements that are misleading and not true.

Thank you for being at least one person who got my reference.

I am always at least one person. :)

But not personal books in the mobile apps, correct?

I agree that broken promises, flawed software, poor customer service, price-gouging, etc., etc. are all important issues. However, let's be fair. Post such complaints on the forums for the company in question, so they have an opportunity to address them. Good companies value customers' feedback. It helps them improve their products and services. I know we at Accordance appreciate it. I'm going to assume other companies feel similarly. Let's do our best to restrict comments on this forum to those relevant to Accordance.

I do apologize if I have been anyway unfair towards the competition. I did upgrade there and have been frustrated, I have expressed myself on their forums. In this thread I have only tried to point out ways in which Accordance is better than them. I could easily have noted how mobile Accordance has and awkward selection method compared to them. We know this is being worked on for a more natural selection. A representative from the other company flat-out said personal book sharing with mobile devices was not coming anytime soon (this for me was a disappointment because I had believed that was the point of this forthcoming feature). Sharing was just between computer installs. I could have mentioned that Accordance's user tools defect is that you cannot put pictures in them at this time. Both companies have work to do. Both products are useful. I am not getting rid of either. I realize it is wiser to not bring another company into discussions here at all, this is an Accordance forum.

It does take courage to apologize openly, props for that (even though personally I don't see much guilt in it)!

Hi, Everyone!

 

It's not so much what was said, as the direction this thread seemed to be headed. I thought I'd post a gentle reminder to redirect.

 

I also respect Dan's apology and understand there was no ill intent on anyone's part.

 

Peace.
