Dear Accordance,

Well done! The new app is amazing, the new website is amazing, the new packages are amazing, and the promise of Accordance 10 for Windows is amazing. This is an incredible set of improvements. Serious kudos to everyone who helped pull this off.

Thanks, Jonathan!

I feel that way too, and I'm part of the team! :D I've been so busy with the podcast, I hadn't taken time to see what everyone else was doing. I love our new homepage. Makes me feel like part of an elite [and very, very knowledgeable] club.

I agree wholeheartedly with Jonathan. All your hard work, planning, and talent have yielded a terrific piece of software and a colorful, uncluttered, easy-to-navigate new website. It will be even easier to navigate when it is not so swamped by updaters and buyers!

I really like the new packages, too. Even though I already owned a bunch of the stuff in the Essential Collection, it was still worth the upgrade from the Premier 9.

Thanks to all of you.

Great Job! Accordance 10 is beautiful. I really like some of the built in themes and like the you've done a lot of work on making them beautiful to look at and easy to read. I'm sure that it will take time to both get used to and discover all the changes (keep those podcasts coming!), but after 10 minutes I am glad to have upgraded!

Is there a comparison of 9.x and 10? Or is there a list somewhere of what is new? Thanks for all the work.

I'm interested to see that version 10 will come in a Windows version. I have no desire to see Windows users locked out of my favorite Bible software. However, I do hope that moving resources into Windows development doesn't hurt the Mac version. We use Pro Presenter at our Church which used to be a Mac only product. After the Windows version was released we found future Mac updates to be far more buggy and less refined. Here's hopping Accordance avoids that pitfall.

I think I can speak for the entire Accordance staff. Macs will always have first place in our hearts.

The only real downside I can see to having Accordance on a PC is that you'll have a beautiful, uncluttered program running on a machine that is plastered with stickers!

In my up grade, Accordance 10 is rebuilding my whole library via easy install.
Should that procedure be taken for granted / normal behavior?

The update looks amazing. Unfortunately, so does the price tag... Looks like another lesson in delayed gratification. :)

Ryan -

The app update is less than $50. That's not all that steep for all the new features! The modules you already own will work. You don't have to buy any new ones to get the update.

Julie is correct. You can upgrade to the new Accordance 10 Starter Collection which will give you version 10 and any new modules in the Starter Collection. Of course, you will still have access to all your current Accordance modules as well. That being said, we made sure that the higher level collections (Bible Study-Ultimate) offer an amazing value, so I expect that many users will want to take advantage of these and expand their Accordance library at a huge discount. For example, did you notice that the $199.99 Bible Study Collection includes all 49 volumes of the Tyndale Commentary? Hard to resist :).
