Very Helpful for NT Greek
The app sometimes starts, and sometimes it doesn't - it simply keeps on loading without starting. Doesn't help restarting the phone. And I'm using an IPhone 7.
When it does work, it works fairly well. When, however, you have for example ESV open and then switch to GNT, it doesn't go to the same passage you were looking at, which is annoying.
Edit1: hasn't worked for several days now. So updated to 1 star.
Edit2: I received help from Accordance support and after removing saved sessions, it then worked and I re-downloaded all the modules. Updated to 4 stars.
Better & Better & Better Still
I have been using the Accordance app for iPad & iPhone since the beginning. Each new release adds greater utility. Being able to untie the two panes is great. I can keep my focus text in place and browse a commentary or study Bible. Search capability of both Bible texts & other resources is excellent. Do you want to be able to find a particular Greek verb but only in the 3rd person singular, perfect passive indicative? Accordance Mobile can do it.
The latest release has many improvements and new features. Having an interlinear on a mobile device is very useful, especially since I can choose which text I want to use for the base – original language or tagged English version – and then choose what information (lexical form of original language, Strong's or G/K Number of tagged English text, etc.) or versions I want to display with it. Highly customizable. The only software that beats Accordance on an iOS device is Accordance on the Mac (or PC).
Almost everything I own in Accordance can go on my iPad and iPhone. I have a fairly limited install on the phone because of small screen size — a bunch of Bible versions, a couple of lexicons, a dictionary and a study Bible. However, on my iPad I have installed everything that I use regularly.
The free version comes with a nice selection of texts and tools. For those of us who started with the desktop version, almost everything we own in Accordance Mac/PC can go on the iPad (excepted are the full Maps & Timeline). The hyperlinks & quality of the formatting make this app a must-have for those who want to be able to take an extensive library for Bible study with them in pocket or handbag.
I continue to use this app daily … Bible reading & searching both in English and Greek, Bible dictionaries, some Accordance exclusives like the Biblelands Photo Guide and Bible Times Photo Museum. The developers are very responsive to users and work to give us more features with each new release. The number of resources available for iPad, iPhone, Mac (& PC) continues to grow – and it's quality stuff from many different theological perspectives.
I have only had this app for one night and I am blown away. I have been using this application in tandem with blue letter bible (my favorite) and the Bible.org (for notes and study helps) apps which makes things about 10 X faster than ever before
