Hey Everyone,

 

Our developers are actively working on this issue, but it is taking longer than we hoped due to the amount of code that needs to be updated in our case. We understand that this is an important issue to many of our users, and please understand that it is important to us too. We will be sure to provide an ETA once we have a better idea of when retina support will be available. In the meantime, we are extremely grateful for your patience.

Thanks for the update Darin. Here's hoping that they can manage the update sooner than later!

Just ordered a rMBP. Here's hoping the experience with Accordance isn't too painful.

Wanted to put in my 2 cents. My MBP died and I stepped up to rMBP. The text fonts in Accordance are really grating now. Looks like I've got on bad glasses. Looking forward to seeing fonts within Accordance as good as the ones I'm now typing on within Accordance forums. Thanks!

 

Just got a new rMBP just over a week ago.  I've found that going into the display preferences and increasing the resolution to "more space" makes it easier on the eyes.  It's not ideal, especially since this shrinks the UI elements, but it works.  The other work-around is a second monitor, though that's not always a good option when mobile.

Just got my Retina MBP. Unfortunately the Accordance experience is awful.

 

I totally understand the decision to develop a Windows Version of Accordance in order to broaden the market but unfortunately for Mac users it looks like we are getting pushed off centre stage. Larger development houses seemed to be able to update their Mac and Windows versions both quickly but for a smaller company like Accordance choices have to be made. 

 

I understand it completely but it still stings a little.

Jeremy: Our Mac development team has been hard at work getting Accordance Retina ready all the time, it's just a massive job. We hired a separate development team for the port to Windows so that it would not impact the Mac development. In fact, much of the underlying work that needed to be done for Retina was also needed for Windows, so it was a win-win situation.

 

FYI, Retina display is coming along very well, and we should have an announcement in a matter of weeks.

Totally understand Helen, Mac is still a small market globally, but obviously the hires made for the Windows version could have been hired to work on the development of the Mac version if the economic case made sense.

 

I don't blame you guys at all. The same thing happened with Renewed Vision when they began development of a Windows version of Pro Presenter. The Mac version is still great, but updates became less frequent and moves to adapt to new directions at Apple became slower. 

 

Ideally the benefit of dual platform is the ability to license more resources which is a win for everyone. The benefit of a Mac only developer is responsiveness to Mac users. It's a cost/benefit decision.

 

Thanks for the update.

Helen, thanks very much for the update.  No bitterness here on the Windows port.  It's actually a great comfort to know that if I ever do have to abandon the Mac platform (not happening anytime soon), I'll still be able to take Accordance with me.

 

Is there any talk about expanding to Android devices?  I don't own one myself (yet), but future Accordance availability would be a major factor.

Thanks for the update Joel.  That is encouraging news!

As for public testing, is that available to all users, or is that limited to a more select group?

I had a stroke the day after Christmas. Since then, Accordance is much more difficult to read than other software which supports retina display. Before this, I didn't think that support for retina display was such a big deal. Now it is.

We'll be posting the release to our beta testing list, but also open up the list to anyone who volunteers to test it.  This is in recognition of our retina display users who anxiously would like a copy to work with.

Thanks Abram. It does present some challenges but my brain seems to still work OK and I am learning to walk again. My eyes, especially the right eye, took a hit. I am able to study and pray and hope to be preaching again by February.
