A Quartet of Updates (Windows/macOS/Android/iOS)!

This week, we’ve released a quartet of Accordance updates across all our platforms: Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. Here’s the lowdown.

Accordance 12.2.9 (Windows/macOS)

This update brings major improvements for importing User Notes from BibleWorks. This includes better matching for Hebrew characters, importing single Book folders of User Notes, and more. There are also minor updates related to Unicode, Simple Constructs, User Bibles, User Tools, and localizations.

For more detailed list of what’s new in v. 12.2.9, go to our “New Features Since 12.0” page and our “Bug Fixes Since 12.0” page.

Update your installation of Accordance 12 by selecting App Update on the Utilities menu (Windows) or the Accordance menu (macOS).

Update: Accordance 12.2.9 is also now available in the Mac App Store.

Accordance Mobile 1.2 for Android

Accordance Mobile 1.2 for Android smartphones and tablets introduces a number of new enhancements, especially relating to text selection, copying text, and support for audio playback!

Tap and hold text for Instant Details and the ability to copy your selection. Any content with embedded or streaming audio can now be played from within the Accordance Mobile app. We've also added a number of other features such as support for PaleoHebrew, the choice of whether or not to include footnote markers or Hebrew cantillation when copying text, the ability to display more Accordance titles than before, and more.

Update Accordance Mobile for Android Version 1.2 from the Google Play Store or the Amazon Appstore for Android. It can also be downloaded directly from our server but will need to be updated manually.

Android 1.2 Amazon Store


Accordance Mobile 2.7.2 for iOS

Accordance Mobile v. 2.7.2 for iOS delivers a number of fixes, updates, and improvements, especially to Paper documents imported from Accordance on Windows and Mac.

Now there is much better support for selecting view options in Paper documents to display explanations, contents, endnotes, and bibliographical information. Tap on footnote or endnote indicators to see destination content in Instant Details. From there, choose to go to that content or amplify. External links in Paper documents can be displayed in Instant Details.

Other improvements to Paper documents include better handling of bibliographic hyperlinks to titles not present on the device. Ibid entries distinguish between page and paragraph numbers and properly support Unicode localization. Even better, Paper Display options now update immediately on iPads.

Besides the above improvements to Paper documents, there are updates to popovers on landscape iPhones and better handling of formatting for original languages in User Notes.

Accordance Mobile for iOS can be updated in the App Store.

What’s New in Accordance Mobile 2.7 for iOS

 

 

Accordance Mobile 2.7 for iOS is a major update bringing a wealth of new features and improvements.

  • Support for syncing and viewing Papers. Take your Papers documents from Accordance 12 with you for reading or presentation on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Improved User Notes. Now you can tap a User Note icon next to the text to view or edit it. An improved User Note edit interface allows you to view the verse for which a note is being added.
  • Improved audio features. The interface for playing Accordance audio-based titles has been improved. We have also added support for background play and control via the lock screen Control Center.
  • Improved Hebrew word selection for Instant Details. Now it is much easier to distinguish between a word, its prefix, or its suffix when accessing information from Instant Details.
  • New Amplify Preferences. A new Amplify section in Preferences allows you to set default resources for English, Greek, Hebrew, and Latin dictionaries or lexicons. Set a default commentary for amplifying from verse references.
  • New Lexeme option in Instant Details for Keyed Texts. In translations with Strong’s or GK Numbers, you can now bypass the default Hebrew or Greek dictionary in Instant Details and go straight to the Hebrew or Greek lexicon specified in your Amplify Preferences.
  • Plus, new Interlinear settings, improved Handoff support, secondary pane page turning, and much more.

Major Update! Accordance Mobile for iOS 2.6

Page Turning - AM 2.6 Accordance updates keep on coming! Yesterday, we released Accordance 12.2 for Windows & Mac; and today, we’re excited to announce the release of Accordance Mobile for iOS v. 2.6. Version numbers by themselves don’t mean much, but let me say up front that this is one of our biggest updates ever for Accordance Mobile!

Just in time for the holiday season, Accordance Mobile 2.6 is here with an incredible number of user-requested features and updates!

Page Turning

You asked for it, and here it is! If you prefer to turn pages instead of scrolling, now you can! In any title, click on the Quick Settings icon and flip the switch on Page Turning. Or if you know Page Turning is for you, go into the universal settings for Texts and Tools and turn it on for everything.

Page Turning Settings Am 2.6

Handoff Support

Have you ever been working on one device and wish you were on a different one? Now you can start on your iPhone and finish on your iPad or the other way around. Initial support for Handoff between Macs and iOS devices has been implemented with continued improvements on the way.

For more information about Handoff, see Apple’s support page.

iPhone X Support

You may have already noticed that most of the images on this page are iPhone X screenshots. Accordance for iOS 2.6 takes advantage of the iPhone X’s full screen size, including adjusting for the iPhone X’s camera array.

User Note Updates

For the past few releases, we’ve had to issue warnings about editing Notes files in Accordance Mobile for iOS that were originally created on Windows or Macintosh computers if the notes contained images. Fortunately, with the release of Accordance Mobile for iOS v. 2.6, you can edit Notes files that contain images without worry. Also, URLs are now supported in User Notes, too.

Report a Correction

Find a mistake? Sending in corrections has been easy if you were running the Mac or Windows versions of Accordance, but not so simple in Accordance Mobile. Now, if you find a mistake, simply select the content in question and report it from the Action Bar within the app.

Report a Correction AM iOS 2.6

Improved sharing

Version 2.6 delivers massive sharing improvements via the iOS share sheet, including support for new accordance.bible universal links. Share a verse, quotation or profound thought in social media or separate notetaking software with an accompanying link to the source in Accordance.

Twitter Share from AM 2.6 iOS

And a whole lot more

Accordance for iOS 2.6 includes many other improvements including Startup Session crash check, better syncing, updated support for accord:// links--including support for missing linked modules—and much more!

Come See Us at ETS/SBL to Win a 64 GB iPad Air 2!

iPad Giveaway The annual November Bible conferences are fast approaching, and as always, Accordance will be there! These days, thanks to modern technology, attendees at academic conferences no longer have to leave their research tools behind; instead, their libraries travel with them wherever they go!

This year, we're giving away a 64 GB iPad Air 2 so that if you're the winner, you will be able to carry your entire Accordance Library wherever you go in the palm of your hand! The current iPad Air 2 is the most powerful and up-to-date tablet from Apple in this size range. And 64 GB of storage is more than enough space to carry a theological library with you at all times that would rival personal libraries of generations past!

And if you win the iPad, we'll even let you pick the color!

During either conference, simply register for the drawing at our booths (ETS #29 & SBL #903) from November 17-24 or at the Accordance Training Seminar (November 20).

Please, only one entry per registered attendee please.
