How to Quickly Switch Titles

Need to switch titles more quickly in Accordance Mobile? Here's how. Sure, one way to change titles is to tap the Library icon and access all of your Bibles and books, but there's actually a quicker way. Bring up the interface by tapping once on the screen. At the top you see the title of whatever you're currently reading. If you tap on that title, it will take you to a listing of the titles in your Accordance Library. This even works when you're reading two titles in parallel. Either title will allow you to access other Bibles and books. The pane on the left will give you access to Bibles, while the one on the right will give you access to other Bibles, Reference Tools (such as commentaries) or your personal notes.
