Enhanced Text Selection
Selecting text is more versatile in Accordance Mobile 2.0. Now, selection handles can be used to select words, phrases, parts of a verse or multiple verses. After the selection is made, a menu will display the options of what can be done with the chosen text: Copy, Highlight, Clear, Share, Define, Note, and Bookmark. Selecting only one word will bring up Instant Details.
One of the new options when selecting text is Social Sharing. Select any Bible verse or passage from a book you're reading and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or any other means of sharing you have set up on your iPhone or iPad.
This same feature will also let you save a text clipping to popular note-taking apps like Evernote and OneNote.
Accordance Mobile 2.0 includes a number of new font and color settings for text, background color selection, and hyperlink style. Best of all, Accordance Mobile has been updated to take advantage of larger screen sizes such as the iPhone 6 Plus.
Link/Unlink Parallel Panes
A new button appears in the parallel pane to Unlink and Link content. Click the Linked button () to unlink the panes; click the Unlinked button () to link the panes. When panes are unlinked, each can be navigated independently. This feature is extremely helpful when you need to access two different places in the same text.
Revised Help System
We have added a completely revised and more thorough HTML-based help system. Users can access Help from within Accordance and it can be bookmarked on any device. This brings the same quality of our award-winning desktop Help system to our Mobile App.
