Accordance 13 is now available on the Mac App Store! Here are the details of the differences between a purchase on this website and from the App Store:

Mac App Store

  • Requires Intel Macs running OSX 10.10 or later
  • Updates are released through the Mac App Store
  • Updates may be delayed due to Apple’s approval process

  • Requires a separate download of the Accordance files for each “user” running Accordance on your computer
  • May require you to redownload your current Accordance modules due to sandboxing. This is the case if they are currently in your local HD rather than your user folder.

* Once you register your Mac App Store purchase, you can order a custom upgrade to a larger Collection on our website. You will receive credit for the App Store purchase. If you do not automatically see the discount in your cart, be sure to send the order to manual processing with a note requesting the credit and our sales team will adjust the price before charging your card. We appreciate your patience as we process the order.

* Upgrading in the Mac App Store

Within the App you can purchase an upgrade to the full Accordance 13 Starter from 13 Lite, and from version 12, 11, or 10. The upgrade price from an earlier version will be offered once you validate your previous App Store purchase. Some purchases of version 12 will be upgraded FREE.

Users of the App Store version of 10 should first install the free upgrade to 10.4.6 so that version 12 on the App Store will be able to access all their previous files.
