Syncing Notes is Way Too Complicated
Overall, this is a great app and does what it is intended to do regarding biblical texts and resources for study.
The biggest drawback is the syncing of notes. This is a major issue to me because I use the app on both the iPad and iPhone and want to sync my notes with my Macbook and iMac.
Here’s the primary issue: syncing on the iOS app is not automatic. Instead, the user must manually sync notes both before closing the app and when opening the app. Compounding the problem is that syncing notes is way too complicated: It takes five taps to sync a note. This is unbelievable in an age where apps sync seamlessly (for the most part) between devices.
I understand there were issues with Dropbox sync that originally led to this, but the developer has not implemented workarounds that would make the process much less difficult for the user. For example, the issue could be addressed by simply adding an option in the note dialog box to sync the note to Dropbox.
Accordance is great overall, but the sync issue is a major issue to me. I hope that this is addressed in the next update.
I found the organization of the tools within the app very helpful. I especially like the addition of Strongs Concordance. The ability to select a word in the Bible and instantly bring up the etymology, pronunciation, and references is invaluable for study. I highly recommend this app.
Excellent Bible App
I love using the app. I wish that I could edit user tools from the app, but this may require complex programming.
