multiple reading ribbons that move with me as I read

Bookmarks are nice, but they don't update based on my current reading position.  I use Accordance on my iPhone for Bible reading much more than for study.  I also am reading in multiple locations at any given time (e.g. OT and NT).  Having ribbons that can be set once and update automatically would be ideal.


The attached screenshot has three ribbons that would take the place of two of the "next" and "previous" buttons.  When I'm reading I don't use the next and previous buttons (actually I don't ever use them, but I'm sure some do).


Each ribbon holds a location in a text

One tap on the ribbon opens that text in the most recent location.

The active ribbon button is highlighted in the display.

If a ribbon is tapped and has no text location (i.e. the ribbon hasn't been used yet), the ribbon is set to the current text and location.

Ribbon location always points to the text location at the top of the display window, and is updated when the window changes (e.g. user scrolling).

To reuse a ribbon for a new text and location, tap and hold.  A prompt appears, "Move ribbon here?"


I have not been able to find another iOS Bible reader that has a feature like this.
