I have used Accordance almost since they first started it. It is a very powerful program that has a steep learning curve to get full functionality. At the same time, they have excellent videos at their site (can be downloaded or for $10 they will send them on a disc). The videos helped me to really feel comfortable with it.

I usually have 4 different translations of a text at a time for my sermon preps: RSV (what my church, unfortunately, still uses); NRSV, The MESSAGE and the new Contemporary English Version. I also switch to the Greek and Hebrew texts at times. The modules are numerous and I learned from one of the videos how best to group them in sub-folders. The choices are excellent.

I love having bunches of commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias and word study tools available with just a click.

There is no other program I have found to match it. They continue to grow, add and adjust. I have found the tech support to be excellent and prompt. The staff is friendly and helpful when I call about orders and they know what they are doing.

I highly recommend this program as the standard for all bible software on the Mac or elsewhere. And this comes from years of using their materials almost daily!

I had posted I had a problem with the 2.0.2 update. The support people were incredible! Quickly responded to my problem, we exchanged several e-mails as they guided me through a process to see if we could locate the missing file. Did not find it but it was an inconsequential one because I was experimenting to see how the program worked. Helped me with another question. Did this over several days. Excellent support. Great little program. I highly recommend both the program and the developers!

Don't know if my erroneous clicking the stars posted or not. This is the actual one.

I just downloaded it. WAY too expensive.

I have used all the other outliners - still looking for MORE (sob!)

This is too light a product
- NO zoom view to see it on large screen - stuck with your text size for the view

- NO Harvard option in numbering - what??!!

That is just to start. I really wanted this to be good. OmniOutliner Pro is pretty good - printing problems for me.

Opal is simple but useful.

Tao now replaced by Neo, complicated bur very functional. Easy to get lost in the complexity.

I keep searching. Where oh were is MORE - so simple yet powerful! You would think with all the power of our computers someone could reproduce MORE. My kingdom for that! ;-)

I can't tell you how many times this app has saved my hide! It is perfect: simple to use, fast, and gives me exactly what I want. It has helped me with old files that no longer have a program but from which I need the text or graphics.

I highly recommend File Juicer!

I love this app. I use it every day. The developer is responsive to suggestions and concerns. The program works like a dream. I can search and replace even carriage returns and tabs (Pages STILL can't do that most basic function), an ability I requested of the developer and he came through!!

Simple. Quick. Supported. Perfect!

I love this app. Use it daily to adjust text from online to be imported into my main WP (Pages). It is simple yet powerful. Fast. And well supported. I requested the ability to replace carriage returns and tabs in the Search function - he did it and was prompt to reply to questions. Excellent product. Excellent support. Can't beat the price (though I would pay for this app). Can't do any better than that.

Highly recommend Bean!

I am thrilled with the update. Have missed it and my OS needs a good swift kick in the pants cleaning! Applejack has kept me problem free for years. Many thanks to the developer for keeping this invaluable program going!

I like Bean very much. I still use TextEdit Plus though it is way behind in so many things. I prefer it's search and replace interface, though you can do paragraph return and tab search/replaces with it, too. Just more ease in TextEdit Plus. I usually have massive internet articles that need format work, and since Pages will NOT let you search and replace in selected text (why not? Isn't that a basic???) so I depend on TextEdit Plus.

I have used Accordance for ages. I have needed assistance a number of times for problems that were of my own doing. I cannot begin to say how pleased I have been with their support. At all times they have been professional, helpful and down right friendly. Additionally, they have continued to develop the product and provide invaluable resources. Especially appreciated is their continued support of and effective use of the Mac environment.

I am writing this primarily in response to an earlier negative review that reflected none of my experience. Their products are excellent, their support superb and my only regret is that I don't have a few more bucks to purchase additional modules for my program.
