New Features In Mobile 2.3 for iOS

Accordance Mobile 2.3 for iOS is finally here! This release incorporates a number of iOS 9 capabilities as well as other new features making Accordance even better to use when on the go. iPad Pro users will be thrilled to know that Accordance Mobile now takes full advantage of the tablet's 12.9" 2732 x 2048 screen resolution. This allows for even more viewable content, crisply displayed on the screen that's comfortable on the eyes for extended periods of study, research or pleasure reading. However, even if you don't have an iPad Pro, there are plenty of new features that makes Accordance Mobile even better on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Here are the top new features in Accordance Mobile 2.3.

Slide Over*

If you’re using an iPad updated to iOS 9, Accordance now works with Slide Over. While in another application you can slide Accordance Mobile over on top of the app to check a reference, search for a word or any other task that Accordance can perform.

Slide Over
*Note: Currently, Slide Over is only available iPad Mini 2 or later, iPad Air or later, and the iPad Pro.

Split View*

Or if you need more direct interaction between Accordance and another app, you can now use Split View to place Accordance side-by side with another application.

Change Pane Orientation

If two vertical columns of text seem too narrow, especially in Split View, you can now manually change the way panes are stacked on the iPad with the new Pane Orientation icon at the bottom of the screen.

Saved Secondary Pane Location

Now when a secondary pane is unlinked, your place is still saved in the second column when you come back to Accordance. This allows you to begin reading precisely where you left off.
