OakTree Software

I have been a long-time fan of OakTree’s Accordance Bible program. I have used it for years. It is simply the most powerful Bible study program for the Mac and is used by numerous biblical scholars for original language research.

But, one area that has shown it’s age was the interface. Accordance Bible was around long before OS X, and some of it interface elements were actually carried over from OS 9.

These are screenshots of the user interface for version 9 of the Accordance Bible software. It was from these two screenshots that ForbenMedia began to recreate a modern Accordance Bible UI experience.

These are mockups for the updated v10. The first contains no zones, the other two are different themes for the interface.

We encourage you to check out Accordance 10. It truly is the best Bible software on the Mac and with a free trial you can’t go wrong. A PC version is scheduled for release in 2013.
