I have never had or used an iPhone, so using Accordance for iOS has included learning how to use the iPad interface. The biggest problem I faced in Accordance for iOS was fixing typos and adjusting text at the beginning (or in the middle) of my search strings. My fat fingers just will not let me place the cursor next to the typo; ever. So, I would often end up deleting most of the search string to get back to the point where I made the typo.

This morning, I finally learned that if I just briefly hold my finger down in the middle of the search text string, a magnifying lens appears and gives the ability to move the cursor to exactly the spot where a deletion/correction is necessary.

I'm probably the last person to discover this magnifying lens feature, but I'm posting about it just in case there are other poor souls out there who weren't familiar with this crucial ability. ;)
