What I'd love see in the Accordance IOS app.

I think this was mentioned before, but with the gigantic number of texts and charts I have on my iPad now from Accordance, I'd really appreciate the ability to go from one reference to another in much the same way that the IOS Safari browser stores the last 9 web pages available for easy call back.

As a layman who is looking for the best bible reading experience and not needing the extensive search facilities that Accordance provides for the professional researcher I've settled on this method for now:

I'm using the Olive Tree Bible Reader 5 for reading the bible texts and concordances (I duplicated a lot of my existing Accordance library with Olive Tree purchases over the months waiting for the Accordance IOS to become available). It works great and more or less flawlessly for general bible study.

I like to have The Lutheran Study Bible from Concordia available also (and since in Concordias wisdom? they prefer not make that bible available to either Olive Tree or Accordance I'm stuck with using the Kindle version on my IOS Kindle program). Fortunately it's easy to double click the iPad and get to Kindle from Olive Tree and double click from there over to Accordance or back to Olive Tree.

Next there is Accordance with the great Archeology Study Bible, Carta Sacred Bridge, PhotoGuide 3, the Holman Charts, and various other texts. There are charts that I like to have available easily for reference. It would be nice to have the Photoguide open to one page, the Holman Charts opened to "the Prophets in History", and various other texts open and easily switched without closing one book and opening another.

I don't know if this ability would exceed the memory capacity of the current iPad or not.

It's nice to have everything available on the iPad but of course currently it's nowhere near as easy to have the flexibility afforded by Accordance on my Mac Pro where all the things above are no problem at all.
