First, the usual kudos for a great program are easily joined. The recent upgrades to the iOS program have improved its function exponentially. Thank you.

I still find myself using two programs, however. I use iOS Accordance to do careful study because so much of my library is there. But for teaching especially, the notes function on OliveTree BibleReader is so useful and accessible, that I usually transfer my noted into it and complete my outlines there and then present right from the iPad or even the iPhone.

The note making and reading function of iOS Accordance is more difficult to navigate, for me. The filing system is not obvious. The pop-up verse references in the notes of BibleReader are a remarkable help as well.

Are there plans to further develop your notes into a more full featured lesson presentation module? I would love to use only Accordance for all my work instead of switching back and forth.

A sincerely grateful fan,
Josiah Bancroft

Hi Josiah, There a a few improve notes comments. I have just added to one further down the list. I am still using notes to prepare and deliver talks from and so would also like the notes part on iOS improved. Fraser

Accordance 2x iOS 11x on iPad pro and iOS 9 on iPhone 4s, occasionally accordance 12x on Mountain Lion on a reliable '08 mbp.
Other life enhancing software I use includes: forScore with AirTurn page turner for leading all aspects of a service from my iPad including liturgy, sermon and the congregational singing; HymnQuest for developing my selection of appropriate music for the service; Sibelius for preparing the music scores; Lightroom for my photo library!

I agree Josiah. I too use Olive Tree for notes (and Zodiates) on the fly. Accordance notes are not up to par when it comes to a live environment. The last few updates have been cosmetic and bug fixes, I anticipate a feature update soon that adresses funtionality of app and notes. In defence of Accordane, Olive Tree has been doing mobile bible apps for much longer. I think there is just a catch up period to go through. In the mean time Olive Tree is it in a live setting. Would like to migrate 100% soon.
