I use Accordance on Mac & iOS. It is a really stable app with huge potential, yet it isn't overbearing for new users. If you have the patience, and you do, exercise it by checking out their free in-app training, podcast episodes, and forums for help, if the in-app help documentation is not your style of learning. I am blessed to use Accordance, and I highly recommend it. I especially like that the developers make it available for those that have older operating systems on Mac & iOS. Thanks, Oak Tree! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

Accordance is Bible software for everyone, whether you are a casual reader of the Bible, a serious student, a pastor or scholar or even a postgraduate researcher. No longer does it command a niche corner of the limited Mac market of Bible programs, but it dominates on both the Mac OS and Windows platforms. It has speed, it has depth, it has a broad range of Bible-based resources, it has active and ongoing development from a brilliant and dedicated team, it has stellar customer support, it has a vibrant and friendly and helpful online community forum, it is competitively priced, there is no hard sell, you can download a free/demo version and try it out for yourself. If you want to have the Bible on your Mac (or PC or iOS device), you cannot ignore Accordance. I reluctantly switched to Accordance from Online Bible years ago when OLB wasn't available for Mac OS X (NB it is now) after seeing it demoed at a Mac Expo (remember them?). I've stuck with it even though now and then I will try a demo or a free Bible program that is new or novel or innovative. But Accordance is the one that serves me best, it's the one that I keep on using, and continue to invest in by adding new modules fairly regularly (and I don't mean old public domain out-of-copyright works.) And I don't regret a penny of that investment. As I said, if you want to have the Bible on your Mac (or PC or iOS device), you cannot ignore Accordance.

After 2.5 years of using this software on a regular basis, I can say that Accordance (iOS) is one of the worse programs I have ever own in terms of features, stability, and correcting bugs. I do not have any complaints from the desktop version, but, the iOS version has caused me loss of notes (when updating notes between iPad and desktop), clipping of notes when these were recovered, and the interface is crippled with features not working. I am sure others have different experiences, but I will certainly not be investing any more money in this application or the company.

Our Mobile app is not the same version as Accordance 11.1.2 featured here. The 2.3 Mobile update due out very soon should address many of these issues.

Having to purchase a starter kit all over again at each upgrade does seem like a rip. Part of that is the marketing, I think. Maybe the new version is worth another $50-$60 all by itself and the modules are just thrown in to keep us up-to-date. Then why hide that in bundles of module-repurchase distractions? I bought the starter kit already (vers. 10). Now I'd just like to upgrade the program. And where, would somebody please tell me, can I find a review of the improvements (i.e. the value of upgrading) in version 11? I'm retired. I don't have an allowance for books, supplies, etc. I'm interested, but I need to be "sold."

This is really just a naming issue. The Starter Collection is a bunch of free modules that come with the program upgrade. You are not paying again for those modules, just for the program. There's a list of the major improvements here, as well as a new podcast: http://www.accordancebible.com/11-For-11

If you're upgrading from vs 10, its 10 dollars cheaper. $40 for a program update is not too much to ask.

I was skeptical at first due to the price. WWJD? Would He charge $50 for the word of our Lord? Using Accordance, I've realized it's worth every penny. Accordance helped organize our monthly Scripture Session on God's condemnation of homoexuals and their wicked lifestyles. The power of scripture made a few converts and compelled a few sinners to enroll in our Pray Away program, but it was Accordance that enabled us to organize the Word Of God so powerfully against teh gay. Accordance is such a miraculous program, we believe God Himself may have guided the developer in his coding. Technically inclined Christians should note that Accordance installs no daemons on your system! It is a true Christianist app.

Accordance does not in any way endorse the views attributed to us or our users in this tongue-in-cheek review. We simply seek to provide tools to help anyone study the Bible for themselves.

Accordance one of the reasons that I switched to Mac OS. Accordance is fast, powerful, and customizable. Tried and used about every Bible Software program since the 80's and, in my opinion, Accordance is the best hands down. It did cost a bit to get into Accordance, but well worth it! The modules and texts offered have the best links and tags of any Bible Software that I have tried. Many other Bible Software programs could almost be put into the "reader" category. The more you use Accordance, the more it grows on you!

They released a Windows version recently which is very good. Essentially the same program and modules but runs in Windows.

The $50 entry-level for Accordance probably offers less than many free, open source bible programs (i.e. MacSword). The often touted advanced search features mean little if the modules that use it will cost hundreds extra. I have been interested in purchasing Accordance for a while, but whenever I looked at what I was getting I always came away disappointed. I have been using MacSword, and Online Bible Deluxe which I bought on CD for $100, with tons of add-on modules. Still looking for a good, fully tagged Original Languages Study program under $150.

I started using this product in 2009. I use it every day. Searches are almost instant and my favorite commentaries follow along with the Bible text that I happen to be reading at the time. It's so easy to follow through an idea or a thought or a word study. It took a little time to learn to use it well, but Accordance soon pulled me deeper and deeper into my Bible studies. I even started learning Ancient Greek as a result of this product. I have no plans to go back to paper copies of the Bible study materials that I use with this product. There are frequent, valuable updates based on user requests and any problems or questions that I have had are responded to quickly and helpfully by the company.

Why does the MacUpdate website say $69.00? From screenshots Acc10 seems to waste more space on the monitor with larger GUI elements. Real or not? I just have a 13" MacBook. Download: Acc9 is 44 MB and Acc10 is 202 MB. Why four times bigger?
