Great update! Love the one-tap reading mode! But why not make reading mode *even* larger by removing top bar (we can tap one time if we forget what we're reading!) and also extending left and right margins completely (or maybe leave one column of pixels on each side if you really want margins)? Thanks again! (Maybe I'm so picky because I use iOS on my iPhone 4S primarily!)

Thanks for the update. I like the improvements in the UI, especially the new fullscreen mode.

I have to say the update reminds me of the Mac itself, they included things I didn't realize I wanted. Great job!

Version 1.5 took a bit of getting used to, but I see it solved one of the complaints I had with 1.4—the inability to see the end of the last verse in the search results, except by "pulling" against the "rubber band" and holding on as long as it took to read. I posted about it.

Now, 1.5 has given a type of solution to that problem, by allowing one tap to clear the borders. Now, the final verse in Search results is visible once the bottom bar is cleared away.

(And I figured out that long tap gets me to context on any search result verse, so that answers my other problem, which was due to user ignorance.)

"Show in Context" gets you from Search results into the text exactly where you want to be, in full Bible text reading mode, and 1.5 gives you a wonderful way to return to the Search results where you left off. Thank you, Accordance developers for persisting to get the full Search workflow functioning now! Kudos!

I join in to congratulate Accordance on a superb update to the iOS version. There are many great features. I do find the "header" at the top of each "pane" (text or tool) to be very space consuming on an iPhone. I regularly use two panes and to have the name and verse of the module displayed at all times is not needed (I can tap to see it if I don't remember), the verse reference is already in the text. This would free up much needed iPhone screen space.

Thanks for the great update.

I wanted to add an extra comment because after using iOS 1.5 for a week or two I am SO enjoying it. I didn't really feel that previous versions could be my main Bible reader on the iPad (which I use a lot), but 1.5 has rapidly become my default Bible app on both iPad and iPhone. I agree with most of the comments made about future features but, overall, this is a huge leap forward and I'm really pleased. Thanks so much for your hard work.
