I just came across Frank's old post, Considering purchase of an iPad Using Accordance, at http://www.accordancebible.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8889&page=1&#entry39728.
There is a way to enjoy the best of both worlds with remote desktop software, and save on the purchase price of an iPad.
I bought iTeleport (see http://www.iteleportmobile.com/), but there are similar apps. It allows me to view my Windows computer, and control it with my iPad's keyboard and touch features. This means I can do anything on my computer with my iPad, including opening and closing and using programs, word processing, printing, anything and everything! , including running the Windows Accordance program. So, I can switch back and forth between the full Accordance program in the iTeleport app and the iOS version of Accordance. You can even have your pc screen in front of you, with your iPad in one hand, and switch between both keyboards, or between touch and the mouse; they work together seamlessly.
My computer must be turned on to use iTeleport. If it is sleeping, iTeleport can turn it on, so power usage is not an issue. At home I use iTeleport through my local home network, no internet connection required. With my Gmail ID I can access my home computer from anywhere in the world.
iTeleport, or another remote desktop app, can also save you money. First, you can get by with a 16 GB iPad, because you also have the hard drive on your pc. I also use Logos with my iTeleport screen. While I would love to own BDAG and HAL on Accordance, I already own paper editions and Logos editions of both, and I can't justify a third copy of them even at crossgrade prices. With iTeleport I can access all my pc software, including books I own on Logos. Of course I could use the Logos iOS version, but, sometimes it is better to access a certain resource in the full pc version.
If you buy an iPad, you will find that finding and using files is different than what we are used to. You will have to learn how to use Dropbox, and for Unicode you might consider my post, Installing custom fonts and keyboards on iPad - and using them in Pages at http://www.accordanc...showtopic=12975
I also find that Textilus is a more powerful word processor than Pages
I am truly enjoying the best of both worlds.
