I've been using my iPad for study now for a few weeks, aside from the major problem with browsing to switch resources which I outlined in a previous post,1 there does seem to be another super annoying problem.

 

For me, the next biggest problem is that I can't open three panels at once. Obviously it would be better to be able to open more than 3—but two is just not enough. I say this, because my most common use case is to: "Read the Hebrew/Greek, with a reasonably literal English translation, and a commentary alongside". Because there are only two panels, I have to continually flick between resources while I am half way through reading a verse to check a translation, a word, or a commentary note connected to a question in the original language.

 

I am guessing a work around, once iOS 11 comes out, will be the split screen, i.e We could probably split screen Accordance and Logos side by side so you can see three panels at once. iOS 11 can't come soon enough  :)

[1]: The 'recently used' list/screen never contains what I am looking for, and is often too long anyway, so searching is generally quicker, so the 'recently used' list/screen seems to always just get in the way by adding extra taps to the process of switching resources
