Now that iPad OS 13 allows multiple instances of the same app being open at the same time, I am very interested in this same feature for Accordance iOS. There are times when I would benefit from having two instances open at once. For example, I could have two translations open in one window and two commentaries or other references tools open alongside it. This would be a boon to my study and research. 


Multiple instances (split windows / split views) of other apps on the iPad are not limited to Apple apps, but have appeared in third party apps. Would anyone else benefit from this feature?

I can only assume this will be implemented eventually. I believe it's a bit more complex than just flipping a switch in the code, though, so it may not come as quickly as we would like :-)


Caveat: I don't speak for the programmers!
