I have bought some Accordance resources but I don't like the iOS app. I really don't like how there aren't visual markers (book names, big chapter numbers, space between books, etc.). The Psalms look like they are one big Psalm unless you look at the little numbers. Same thing with books. They just flow into the next book. For those reasons the app is unusable to me :-(  

I don't know if this helps: Press AA, All display Settings, Show and there you can choose the preferred one.

Also, I prefer to turn pages. Scrolling is distracting to me. I can't believe they haven't added page turning. Almost embarrassing. 

 

I respect different people have different preferences. Page turning style has always been frustrating to me, how do you highlight a verse or sentence that runs out of the bottom of the page?

The Logos approach (if you prefer swiping to scrolling) is to allow you to use two fingers to scroll the text into position. Kindle lets you continue a highlight on to the next page if you hold down at the edge of a page after you've started a highlight. Either solution works well enough, I think.

Gavin,

 

Just to let you know, if you go to the Library and click on the gear you can then go to Text Display. This will allow you to control the size of the text as well as the reference and how the text is dsiplayed. This will change the way all of your texts are displayed (Fabian's advice will change the way the one text you are viewing is displayed).

 

I would suggest playing around with different things until you find a view you enjoy and can work with. There are options for Tool settings, User Notes, etc.

If you like page turning, your patience may be rewarded soon in the form of an option. I can say no more at the present time, though :-)

Nice! I've played with the text settings. 

 

I wish you could show book names when new books start. For instance, there is no break or sign that Malachi ends and Matthew begins. 

 

Also, the psalms look like one big psalm.

Actually, now that you mention it, thinking about it, you are right, sometimes I get a little confused when I am scrolling and it accidentally flicks into another book of the bible and I haven't realised. Maybe titles would be a good idea.  

 

However, that said, I like to read the biblical text as close as possible to how it was originally communicated, with as few titles/paragraphs as possible, so while book titles might be good, I would hate to start seeing all those annoying subheadings.

Hi Julia, 

 

Have you heard anything on the NASB update?

 

As far as I know, we're still looking at mid-2017, maybe a little later.  I would expect us to have an electronic version available before the premium Bibles from evangelicalbible.com are available.  In fact, the gentleman at Lockman with whom I was corresponding said the Schuyler would probably not be available until 2018 – the handcrafted Bibles take longer to produce.  So we must be patient.

Yes, I can affirm that a month later, we are a month closer. I'd say more, but I already have too many demerits on the "Don't Spill the Beans" chart on the wall at the Accordance home office in Altamonte Springs.

The NASB Facebook fan group has feedback suggesting things are looking like they are stretching into much later in 2017 or even early 2018.

I guess we really shouldn't be too surprised.  Thanks for the update.  I'm not on Facebook – these forums are the closest I get to social media – so I would appreciate any further updates.

In the meantime Accordance can bring some other Bibles which the updates are out. I think on Elberfelder 2016, Einheitsübersetzung 2016 or some foreign languages which had no Bible in Accordance.

Hello Rick, 

 

Do you think at some point you guys will separate books/separate Psalms by titles? Ex: Genesis, Exodus, Psalm 1, Psalm 2, etc. That way you can see when books end?

I'm not a programmer, so I don't make those calls; however, what I've advocated for a long time is the optional (key word) ability to turn on the section headings that are available in most texts--transalations and biblical language. I would like to see this because I find in print Bibles, this helps me to locate content much more quickly. But I've not heard it's coming. I have no information at this time.

I would not use it. It's not Biblical and there's an extremely high level of interpretation, almost all Editions have numerous errors: Such as badly outdated headings when research has proven things but it has been retained just for the sake of "tradition". Even a traditional language 20th century English Bible version such as the 1971 RSV is really great and often my most used Bible for many parts of Scripture, all the while I'm horrified that secondary labels on things are retained due to tradition:

I'm growing only my Accordance and print libraries. I also occasionally duplicate things, depending on price. I don't buy Collections/base-packages at all, to me an OK print library is a Collection/base-package and is bragging-rights, a mid-size Collection would not be!! Books copyrighted in the most recent Years (2011 and later) have to be truly exceptional for me to buy them. I very rarely have to add any lexicons or Bible Dictionaries, I access them wherever, under Accordance I have bought HALOT and BDAG used. Otherwise I prefer BAGD actually which I have under L6.9. The best One-volume Bible commentary is Oxford Bible commentary. NAB70 OT and L6 functionality including Chineze (which I don't speak/read) under spare account. The Oxford Bible Commentary under other one pretty large current account that is the one I actually use. /Oct. 16. 2017 Edited Jan. 14. 2018.
