I hate raising on OLD topic but I am concerned about the development of arbitrary highlighting (pin head) in Accordance on the iPad. This post is NOT to be viewed as a complaint but rather as a concern.
While I realize that there may be relatively few that use highlighting to the extent I do I make extensive use of this valuable asset! Being a "visual" person highlighting helps me in my study, sermon prep and personal enrichment. While I fully understand that I can highlight a single word and highlight an entire verse, the ability to highlight specific phrases in absolutely invaluable! Often it is these phrase that I highlight (mainly underline on my MBP) that become either sermon/teaching main points or sub-points. As I read the text and mark I am able to go back and quickly and easily pick out those points for my sermon outline. I cannot emphasize enough how important and valuable this is for me and I suspect there may some others as well.
Currently I am caught between using a product that affords this ability yet DOES NOT have the speed and stability of Accordance. The ability to very quickly get to the Hebrew and Greek definitions is critically important to me as well and I can get this information with ONE SIMPLE CLICK! (the main ones I am aware of that already have arbitrary highlighting is Olive Tree and Logos) Quite frankly I want to spend virtually all my time in study and preparation with Accordance rather than some other software. I need to ability to do this at home on my laptop but also "on the go" on my iPad mini.
