There are many reasons why the pace of iOS development in Accordance is not what we would like, and I appreciate sincerely the efforts of Chris, et. al. have been giving to us. I consider myself a Mobile First user, and I am not alone here, since the entire world is shifting in this direction. Further, a huge reason I own so much of Accordance besides the awesome pricing is due to the iOS platform. It is simply too hard to curl up in a chair with a Macbook, and I refuse to have so many dead trees in my home since we tend to move around a fair bit and I hate clutter.

 

All that said, we really need the interlinear mode. When translating or checking translations, I love to use the interlinear mode. For the OT, the MT-LXX interlinear is fantastic.

 

But, none of this awesomeness is available on my iPad. Yes, there are many things unavailable on the iPad, such as syntax, diagrams, interactive maps, interactive timelines, etc., and I'd love to have all of those things.

 

But what I'd love to have most is the interlinear. Interlinear plus Airplay projection means I have one less reason to drag a laptop around to the various translation committee sessions. It also means I can finally understand a variant reading in church. From what I can tell, OT has nothing at all like Comfort or Metzger's textual commentary, so all I have to go on for a 1:1 tool is the apparatus.

 

Best,

 

Dan

Dan, this has been requested before and i totally agree. Would also love to see the enhanced tagging feature of the niv with the original language in the parallel pane like we have in the full fat version.

This is number two on my wish list. (Number 1 is having the two panes be able to switch between text, or any type of tool from the top and not be limited to text on the left and text or commentary on the right)
