I would like to know, these things
Why Logos, has continuing problems with their Mac software? check the Logos forums.
I was wondering how long would it take to make it here.
Phil, I am a Logos usera as well as Accordance in a MAC environment. I have NO issues or problems whatsoever with Logos on a MAC (nor with Accordance). I have been using Logos since version 4. So while I have no doubt that some may experience problems you cannot measure the whole just by posts on forums. In my experience those are always a minority and do not reflect the majority. I have experience crashes with both software and there are always bugs in any software (just check this forum). All those things are part of real computing life.
As of the others issues, I have been very active in the thread and while I do not agree with some of the points there are some that are valid.
Accordance does not offer Dynamic Pricing nor a extensive payment plan like Logos does.
In my experience, Logos tagging seems to be more extensive than Accordance. That is shown in the guides, for example.
Accordance searches are faster in general, but Accordance seems to be able to "discern" results better. I believe Accordance is working on that.
Yes, Logos has many mores resources, but both Accordance and Logos have all the important ones. The rest, is just extra.
I would love to see improvement in Accordance use of notes and user tools. On those areas Logos has the edge. But I am confident that this is one area that will be dealt with.
I personally have no issues with speed in Logos. Yes, the starting up of the software is slow but that is not a big deal for me. The rest work just fine considering the complexity of what it does at once. It just doesn't just search for keywords like Accordance does but it filters, discern and collate a the same time it search giving more useful results form the resources (tools). That is where the tagging comes in.
Rather than pit one software against the other I think is better look for the strength and weakness in each one in order to determine what work best for what one is trying to accomplish. That is why I didn't like the title of the threat because for me is not a matter of who overtake who, but rather what work best for what you want to do.
At the end of the day, both software offer extensive resources and tools to help those that want to study the Bible in any depth. Like I said there, if I would have to choose all over again I would choose Logos over Accordance just because it is better suited for my needs and study style and just as a matter of saving money (by not having two system. But if I would only had Accordance I would be equally happy with it. That said, I own both and I enjoy using both very much.
