Hi, folks--this is the best (and most trusted) group of folks online that I know to turn to about this. Helen, Rick, others--if you feel this is off-topic, I won't be offended. (Though it's a question largely driven by my Accordance use.)
My family is for the first time considering adding a tablet to our devices (i.e., one device=late 2008 MacBook). Finances are a consideration, so we don't have unlimited money to spend here. But I have a chance to get a Kindle Fire and possibly think about how our budget might stretch upwards a bit for an iPad mini or iPad.
Here's how I would use a tablet:
*As an e-reader--for pdfs. I use my Kindle Touch quite a bit, which makes the Kindle Fire appealing... both for Kindle books and also .pdfs of articles
*Email (I'm on Gmail, mostly)
*Blogging through Wordpress.com
*Music (I am on Spotify many hours a day)
*Occasional other media (movies, Netflix, TV), but not tons of it
*Bible software for Greek and Hebrew reading
I know Accordance is only in iOS, but there's extra cost involved there, obviously. From reading through the forums, I see Accordance for Windows is in beta, but that Accordance for Android might be a ways off.
Given that I use Accordance regularly on my laptop (and still could--and could perhaps even export dictionary articles, etc. to a Fire), do folks have recommendations on pros and cons of each? I know there would be other Bible software options on a Fire (though none, probably, quite as good as Accordance).
Maybe more to the point of this forum--if we do find/spend the extra dough and go with iOS, it would be because of Accordance. In that case--iPad mini vs. iPad?
