I seem to remember older versions of the IOS Accordance app having a "wheel" option as verse chooser. This seems to have been abandoned in favour of the list/ grid system. I miss the wheel! I found it quicker than either the list or the grid. When i mentioned it in an email to Accordance they suggested i post it here to see if there is any support for the idea of its return.

In short, the Wheel didn't conform to Apple's design guidelines, and would not allow for custom theming. We voted unanimously within our internal group to remove it. There have only been 2 requests that I recall, since last year, to bring it back (including this one).

As a member of the "I also still prefer the wheel" club, the idea is that I often think much faster in a linear sense - "How many books down is Romans from Matthew" than always having to hunt and peck for the small box representing my book. Its the idea of thinking relatively rather than absolutely that makes me miss the wheel so much. I understand the iOS team's decision, but it doesn't replace the speed and ease of the wheel that I miss. I do recognize that different people think differently, so for many the grid is certainly faster.
