I really appreciate all the other resorces that are available in accordance like the cultural image photolibrary, atlas of reformation and sacred bridge not to mention all the grammars and linked lexicons.
I principally us the ipad (daily) ever since i was given one and while i still use it as a book, my frustrations remain that for example
1) having a commentary or text or lexicon open in a single pane, to open a different commentary or resourceor lexicon, i have to go through recently open, library, reference or general etc and then find the commentary, rather than just select it from the list which i could do if it was a commentary open in a second pane with a text.
2) being limited to text and reference in two panes. Frequently i want to open two resources, ebc and ebc notes; two commentaries, a book or text and an atlas or picture library, a text and lexicon or dictionary or grammar.
Yes its a few clicks rather than getting up and going to a book case, but you cant have two open at the same time like you can with physical books ...
Im not convinced apps like e-sword Solution is as comprehensive as accordance but it shows what can be done. the paid for cultural study bible app was certainly one of my rubbish purchases as it is very poorly designed and has been totally unsupported with zero updates despite feedback from their support and i dont use it now as I cant search for what im looking for despite it still being installed.
Hopefully the next version of mobile accordance will have a redesigned interface making use of the new ios suported features.
And i accept that android still needs to catch up and has a larger base of units sold (donk know if they can easily swith non text resources). and we have welcomed bw users and the primary tool is still the full fat version, but I hope more are finding the benefits of tablets, despite their limitations in the operating systems.
I still enjoy accordance on ios and dont use anything else and rely on it despite my moaning. I also have some other fantastic paid for apps like foreScore which i couldnt have imagined 10 years ago and now totally rely on. Exciting times.
