I love the dual split screen function that allows you to look at bible passages/verses on one screen and a selection of other textual content in the other, for e.g. An outline of the chapter you’re reading from or the Greek definition of a word you’ve highlighted and it’s usages in the bible. This greatly enhances the quality of my study as I can nimbly access useful information with just a few taps. Another useful function is bible-verse pop-ups (a small window comprising a passage) when you select a cross reference verse and the option to ‘amplify’ or to switch your screens to focus on the newly selected passage.

A Delight but..

I love this app, which works perfectly on my iPhone but since the recent update the app on my iPad mini crashes when checking for the Greek/Hebrew

Navigating App

How on earth do you navigate this app. Can’t find my way round. Eg. Quotes for today. Excruciatingly painful.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. To reveal navigation icons, lightly tap the screen. Tapping the table of contents icon at the top left corner of the text will allow you to move through Books then Chapters then verses of the Bible. To change translations you may tap the initials of the translation i.e. ESVi at the top center and select another from the list. Or you may navigate to the Library and select a different text from there. The archived webinar on Accordance Mobile here may be of aid:
