I was using my ipad this morning in church. Tried several times to run a pg on Matt 6:33. I would not work. I deleted and reinstalled the app when I got home.. still no joy...

Any ideas? Here is what I get..

Ditto here... i think it is a server issue on Logos side. Hopefully they can fix it when they open on Monday.

Update: Seems to be working tonight.

So, is this what Cloud Computing is going to be like when its not working? Please let us have a full offline application. Let the online portions be extras, not the core features. Just me views ...

I agree, Jim.  Very well stated.

Yeah.. This isn't good...

I wish wish wish for offline usage of the app. It would be awesome (also is one of the great features of the Accordance app). I prefer the Logos functionality as it stands right now... But I prefer Accordance's offline library and usage.

Tom,

Just curious -- what can you do with the Accordance app offline?  Search? Notes? Highlighting? Anything else?

Thanks,

Peter

Currently  accordance is very limited searching is it for now (tap and hold brings up the greek/hebrew but thats pretty basic)... Notes high lighting and syncing personal files from our computers is all coming and I have no doubt it will be fairly soon, but 1.0 is a very preliminary release, Syncing I believe is the next goal, there has been issues getting it working properly.  I really enjoy Accordance APP because of it speed, it took me a little while to figure out how to access TNDT by page number but got it working eventually.

Peter,

The thing with the Accordance app is that ALL of your resources minus a very few are available offline. Searching and navigation is SUPER fast speed wise. Did I say SUPER fast? It is..

Currently, you can search and do notes but no highlighting yet.

Having said that, I still prefer the Logos app for PG etc. But I sure wish it was avail offline.

Dan you can already do Notes. And in what way is searching limited? You can pretty much 'search' the exact same way their desktop application searches. Its one of its most powerful features. You can search using all of the wildcard symbols and any search commands which don't involve linking two separate windows. In other words, the LINK, CONTENTS, HITS, INFER, MERGE, and STYLE commands are not in the initial release of Accordance for iOS, but all of the other commands, including the powerful FUZZY and COUNT commands, are there. You can search key numbered Bibles by key number, and grammatically tagged texts by lexical form, inflected form, root, and grammatical tag.

 

There is even an example on their blog of searching for hapax legomena on the app. I can't even do that in the Logos desktop app.
