In yesterday’s post I commented that it was coming soon, well by evening it was released and available in the App store. Accordance for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is now available for FREE. I only saw it at 11:30 pm so I have had little time to play with it but I have very good first impressions. Best of all, if you log in with your account you can use their “Easy Install” feature to directly download all the modules that you have already purchased. It also comes with a nice set of preinstalled texts (including a demo version of BHS which unfortunately you cannot delete once you have installed a purchased copy) so you can get up and running right away. There are more details on their site.
So far just a few niggles. When you go to easy install it took me a few tries for it to load the complete listing of my available modules. Unfortunately that included Atlas files which cannot be installed on the iOS device. Every text has the book and verse reference on every line. You can turn that off in the desktop app but I cannot find the option to do that in the iOS app. You can only open two texts at once, not really a complaint, even on the iPad you cannot really see more than that usefully, but I could not close the Bible text pane in order to open just the Hebrew and English Mishnah texts.
And all of those comments should be seen as minor. This is an incredibly welcome app to the iOS and further moves it to my only device on the road. I will post a more complete review next week, in the meantime, it is FREE so download it now!

Although it took me a few minutes to figure it out, you can delete any modules (e.g., the demos) using the Edit button on the Library screen.
The app has a few bugs and will get immeasurably better over the next year, but it’s pretty nice even now and — OH! — access to all my modules! What a New Year! (Here’s to hoping my train commute becomes even more productive.)
Well I tried the edit button and the swipe to delete, neither worked. I will try again after a restart.
What do you know? (Not much, you?) Delete worked this time.
