It might be helpful if you clarified what benefit you hope to receive from such a tool because it looks to me like your requirements contradict themselves. A rigorous word study is not going to fit in half of an iOS screen. Plus, a good word study will take into account the multiple places where a word occurs in order to discuss its range of meanings, and would thus be organized by word (like a dictionary) not by reference (like a commentary).

Hope that makes sense.

The problem with using the split screen is that it is intended for a parallel resources, like another Bible or a commentary. Dedicated word study tools are indexed alphabetically, so they don't scroll with the text. You'd need a commentary that includes a lot of good word studies in it. My "go to" for these kinds of commentaries is Eerdmans' NIGNT or UBS Translators' Handbooks (both for NT).
In Accordance on a computer, users can have more than one zone open (zones scroll independently). That isn't [currently] possible on iOS. Sorry.
