If Not by Christmas, When?
Here at Accordance, we tend to be reticent about announcing new products until they're very nearly ready for release. The reason is simple: software development, like most creative enterprises, does not often lend itself to a clearly defined timetable. There are always unanticipated challenges and occasional design changes along the way, which means that any planned release date may need to be pushed back. We therefore try not to make promises we may not be able to keep.
I'm sure you iPhone and iPad users who were hoping for an Accordance app by Christmas already know where I'm going with this: we didn't quite make the "hopefully by Christmas" estimate we've been giving for the past couple months. I could give revised estimates at this point (New Year's? Epiphany? Elvis' Birthday?), but I think I'll just stick with my intentionally vague statement that "the release of Accordance for iOS should be just around the corner."
Rest assured that we'll be shouting the news from the rooftops the minute Accordance appears in the app store, and I'll be giving you more previews of the app later this week. In the meantime, if the cash you received for Christmas is burning a hole in your pocket, be sure to check out the newly released Archaeological Study Bible.
