I've had two iPhones both were terrible so I won't be purchasing another. I had to invest in Logos so I would have some resources on my Android phone. Still hoping we won't have to wait too long for the Android app.

My advice: get an iPhone, you'll love it!

 

Unless you like listening to music, in which case you have to have a chunky adaptor poking out of the end to use any sort of decent quality headphones.

The adapter is far from chunky.

I guess it depends on how big your pockets are yes? My phone already sticks out of my pockets, I don't need another 5cm poking up out of my pants. No my friend, I have certainly purchased my last ever iPhone.

 

Furthermore, you can't charge and listen to music at the same time. I assume this is not a problem unless you listen to music a lot? But you can always get this $60AU double adaptor :D

Since I work at a desk most of the time I use a base that charges my iPhone and has an audio jack out that I plug my headphones into. So yes I can do both at the same time if I need to.

Randy:  all of that is easy on our Apple Mobile app. I am sure we aim for that on Android, but the system is so different that we are having to write much of the code from scratch. We may decide to release it before it reaches full parity with the Apple app.

 

My advice: get an iPhone, you'll love it!

 

Thanks, Helen and all who've answered. The mobile app does sound like it does exactly what I want and more. That is great news. An iPhone is not in the cards: I ordered a Pixel a few weeks ago and it's due this week, and I have a strong preference for Android. I might be convinced to pick up an iPad mini, however. I'm due for another tablet as mine is getting a bit old and slow; and 7-8" tablet is the form I prefer most for "casual" study. Again, though, I really have a strong pref for Android. Nothing against iOS, just a personal pref. Not sure which way I'll go yet. If the Android app were "coming soon" I know I'd wait--I may wait a bit and see and if I soon get impatient I'll pick up a iPad mini. But my most pressing question is answered; I now know the app will do what I need whether on iOS or Android. Thanks for the answers.

Hi Randy,

 

Just some thoughts that might help you decide on an iPad mini.

 

I also prefer Android to iOS, except in the area of productivity apps for biblical studies. But on the OS side, I'd have to say they are quite similar and iOS is easy to get used to. I'd recommend a mini as a very stable and powerful device. I've had absolutely no problems.

 

My advice would be to get a mini and enjoy all the features now. Then, by the time the Android app appears, all the bugs are ironed out, and its features are on par with the iOS app, you can switch back to Android. If the iOS app keeps developing at a rapid pace, it might be some time before the Android one catches up anyways.

 

I think it's becoming normal to have many different operating systems for different purposes. I myself have a Windows 10 Pro i7/x64 Dell Laptop, an x64 Asus Linux laptop, an OSX laptop, an iPad Mini, and BlackBerry phone, and I use them all.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

I have the samsung 7 inch tablet Randy and it seems really good.  I would personally say avoid apple, I was a massive apple fan, it was through them I discovered accordance and bought my first packages on my Macbook.  However, since Jobs passed away the company has lost its grip on general reality.  I know people spoke of Steve's distortion reality field, however little things like the removal of headphone jacks, the new crippled MacBooks etc show that the company has got so wrapped up in its own pretense that its deteriorating and becoming unreliable for consumer productivity.

 

I find it insane that you can go into an apple shop and get a new Macbook and a new iphone and the two would not be able to sync together without an adaptor.

 

Just my view through :)

 

I may have said it already in this thread....really looking forward to the new android app.

+1

Latest in 5 year all are happy that NO adapter will ever be used again. How we say in the German part of Gods world: "Better an end with a catastrophe, than a catastrophe without  an end!". A pain for decades comes to an end.

 

I dream: I would love had seen that my ex-Amiga computer would have only one sort of connectors and I would be able to play Monkey Island on a bigger screen. With a larger HD than 20MB etc. But the Amiga has passed and we look now to the future.

 

Atari, Amiga, PC, Mac, Ti, Commodore, igadgets etc. everyone had his own connectors. Thank God this nightmare comes to an end.

Who needs an exhibition. most of us probably still all have 'old' tech stuck in a drawer (old being relative). I still have my first bbc with a pascal chip for programming.

Security update availability has always been the main reason to stop me even considering Android as an alternative for an iPhone, now that we have this unfortunate "no headphone socket" situation, I have been forced to look at Android more closely. It seems that if you buy your phone direct from google (i.e. the google pixel) then you do get updates direct from google. So the security situation seems greatly improved as long as you bypass the phone companies.

And Google knows all. Also with the Google Apps of the Chrombook. For me also a nightmare. I didn't use Dropbox, or iCloud for the same reason.

 

I use https://www.ixquick.comfrom Netherland as search engine. 

 

iMessage from Apple

 

Swiss secure:

https://www.incamail.com to send encrypted emails.

for encrypted file transfers http://www.wesendit.info

https://threema.ch/en an end-to-end encrypted messenger

 

I don't use Facebook or WhatsApp, Insta.. etc. I also don't like people who has a me in their contacts and use an Android system, WhatsApp. Because I don't want to be in a shadow profile only while this person and that person has me in the contacts.

Oh? I was under the impression that as long as you avoid all of the Google Android apps your data is reasonably separated from Googles servers? (i.e. Use your own mail app with your own mail provider, your own calendar app not syncing with google, etc) Is that not true?

They don't know for example what you have in the messages, but they make shadow profiles of you in the way who is connected. And as you are like your "friends" they know also  a lot from you.

I've opted for what I think is the best. A Google Nexus or Pixel phone, and an Apple iPad for running Accordance.

Yes, as the owner of very many Accordance modules, I'd love an Android app. But you what I'd love more? Feature parity in the iOS app vs Mac Accordance.

Hi, i used to have that mix with a very early htc phone but quickly changed. i dont think we will ever get parity and im not worried.

If you want parity on a tablet, then i think you need something that runs a full os like the surface pro.

Wish apple had given the ipad pro a full os, perhaps one day...
