The Starter Collection is the most affordable way to get up and running with Accordance. This introductory set of Bibles and tools provides you with everything you need for basic study. The included ESV Bible is tagged with Strong’s numbers, allowing you to quickly look up Greek and Hebrew definitions right from your English Bible. You can also look up unfamiliar people, places, and terms in Eerdman’s Dictionary of the Bible, which includes almost 5,000 articles. When you come across challenging passages, you can refer to the IVP New Bible Commentary, which offers valuable insights throughout every book of the Bible.

Upgrading works quite well, although it is a three step process between the basic application, clicking yes to do the free updates (I had 80+ free updates so the download was not instantaneous), then asking if you want to do a paid upgrade of certain versions to include reference numbers (some I did, some I did not, so it was appropriate to ask)

Thanks for your reply!
On my review I wrote how disappointing I find that if I want to upgrade I need to pay for modules that I already have.
I did mention that it is fair to pay for the upgrade, whatever the cost, but to throw modules that I have and I would like to believe other Accordance users may have, is a marking strategy that in my view is not very good and confusing.
It would be much better to offer current Accordance users like me the option of purchasing the upgrade on its own and I would pay the $50 , or if they want to offer the upgrade with a module that you don't currently have then that would be a better way of marketing it.
If the upgrade is much better and gives you really good value for money then why not selling it as just an upgrade and forget about the added modules, unless you need the upgrade for the modules to work but that is not clear either.
This strategy works for first time buyers

I don't work for Accordance, but I felt compelled to respond.

Paying $50 to get the newest version of Accordance is reasonable upgrade cost. Assuming that 12 months of work went into this upgrade, it's less than $1 per week. It would only be fair for the developers to get paid for their work as well.

Yes, new Accordance customers are getting the app plus some modules for free, but that is intended to help them get started using Accordance, which they couldn't do without some modules.

If you don't want to upgrade to 11, your version 10 software will continue to work just fine.

As far as moving to Logos, I can speak to that since I have used both programs for the past several years.

Logos just released their version 6, and from what I can see from their website, it looks like it will cost me about $125 to upgrade to the lowest available "cross-grade". I can wait until Feb 2015 for the "Logos core engine" to be upgraded for free, however, ...

I can wait until Feb 2015 for the "Logos core engine" to be upgraded for free, however, basically none of the reasons for upgrading to Logos 6 would be included in that.

Don't take my word for it, see what's described here: http://abramkj.com/2014/11/03/get-logos-6-making-some-sense-of-the-upgrade-process/

So, Logos is making their customers wait to get a free upgrade which will be largely worthless unless they pay $125 to get _nothing new_ as far as *content* is concerned, just to be able to use their current content with the new features of Logos 6.

(ISTM that in any sane world this would be considered charging people $125 to upgrade, but you'll see plenty of Logos folks saying "It's free!" My point is that if you think you're going to save money by switching to Logos, you'll end up disappointed.)

Also, Logos' performance is not great. It wasn't great in version 4, it wasn't great in version 5, and I'm guessing it won't be great in version 6. It has always felt like the slowest app on my Mac, even on a MacBook Pro with an SSD and 8GB of RAM.

Not only that, but every time a module is updated in Logos, it has to reindex your Logos Library, which can take several hours and thrash your CPU.

In the days when many iOS and Mac apps sell for a few bucks, a $50 upgrade might seem like a lot. But writing and maintaining software is not free, and licensing materials from publishers is expensive. How does the saying go? "He knows the _cost_ of everything but the _value_ of nothing?" If Accordance 11 doesn't seem like it is worth the cost, then sticking with Accordance 10 is a reasonable decision. Personally, I expect to get far more than $50 worth of value out of Accordance 11 in the next year or so.

Why do I have to pay for modules that I already have (Even the new ones) to get accordance 11?
It would be only fair to pay for the new accordance 11 system without the modules. I have been an accordance customer for years and I love the system, however this is disappointing!
May be it is time to look at the Logos Bible Software...not impressed!
