Very Impressed! - I am a long time PC user and newly converted Mac Book user. When I bought the Mac Book, I gave up the Bible study software I had been using for years on my PC. After using Accordance on my IPad I decided to buy the Special Scholars Edition available in the Mac App Store. To say I'm impressed would be an understatement. I have watched almost every "Lighting the Lamp" pod cast learning how to use this tremedous Bible study tool. I love it. This is the best Bible study software I have ever used and I know I'm only scratching the surface with it!

No Retina Support - Logos has had their software ready for Retina since day one. Oaktree, one year later, has dropped the ball on this one. The software looks very bad on retina macs.
