I agree. Especially because of the devotional feature!

It's SO good! It's a lovely Christmas present to all of us from the hard working Accordance developers. THANK YOU!

Love the GRID on the Go To feature.

I think it was about this time last year that the first release of the iOS app was released. It has sure come a long way since then. Thanks very much for the latest update. I have downloaded it but haven't had much time to use it yet. From what I've seen it looks great and adds some significant new features.
Thanks,
-Paul

Thanks for the encouragement! We'd love it if some of you wrote a quick review. So often the app store gets flooded with pithy "reviews" that are nothing more than rants or tech support issues that are either isolated or the result of user misunderstanding. It's a shame that we can't respond to clarify or help people.

We've got big plans for 2012!

The new iOS update is fantastic!! Things I didn't even know I needed are there and work wonderfully.

I do have one question though. I tend to use highlights rather aggressively, probably more than I should, which may be an "age thing." Highlighting verses in texts is straightforward, as is highlighting individual words in tools, but I haven't found a way to highlight sentences in tools, or copy sentences for that matter. Am I missing something, or is that not possible yet?

Keep up the great work!

I love the new version, the devotionals are great. Really love the recent apps thing, works basically like tabs, I can zip between any tool with only two clicks. Delighted the app now remembers every tools last position when used, tested this by scrolling down a tool clearing it from the recents list then resetting iPad, still remembered last used position! That's the one thing I was desperate for!

The improved navigation and the enhanced pop-ups are just a couple of the things I like about the update. Great work.

Thanks again for the positive feedback. In case I wasn't clear, I did mean 'quick reviews' on the app store, too. ;-)

What a great update. I like the grid GoTo option. Recent Modules is nice, too!

Thanks for the hard work. This app keeps getting better and better. I was doing my iOS reading another app but now use Accordance almost exclusively.

I wanted to add my thanks to all the Accordance iOS team. The iOS app is maturing nicely. I especially like the new devotional function and the ability to amplify - most helpful!

Edit to add: Forgot to mention that the Library categories are nice, too. Gives it more a feel of continuity with the Mac program - even though the library search function might be more practical. Having both is vey nice. I appreciate flexibility.

Peace!

Is it possible to have a simple "back" button. For example, when I highlight a word in a module, a pop up window open and I can choose, Copy, Highlight, Search and Amplify. Once I click the "Amplify," it does the job for me but I have no way to come back to previous window. What I have to do is to click the library icon and select the module that I just read. Am I missing something? Or do you think having a "back" button will help? Thanks,

Kit, two-finger swipe (right) will return to the text/tool you amplified from.

I am greatly impressed with all the thought, planning and implementation put into the latest version of Accordance for the iOS. Like some of the others I have found myself not understanding how to get back. The two-finger swipe is a very iOS like move (gesture). In order for us to truly appreciate all the new features and how to use them a podcast from Dr. J. should be around the corner. HINT HINT...

Thanks, Tony. Blog posts, and I'm pretty sure a podcast are being planned. The help page is also being updated, and should be live soon.

The Help is live but is still in process of updating. Sorry, the server problems prevented us from doing it earlier.
