Someone should tell Rick that there’s a really nice Accordance app for Mac. ;) Now if it was ukFraser, I could understand.  He really likes the iOS app.

I was just about to say... what use case is there for selecting the iOS Accordance app over the macOS one? (No offense, intrepid iOS developers!)

Any ETA on Accordance on Apple Silicon? I’m putting together a list of apps updated for Apple Silicon.

For me the iOS app on the Mac make sense as secondary window in Split Screen. For example next to Word, Pages, etc.

I think Fraser might be waiting for the M1-TS 360, the one with a Touch Screen and 360 degree hinge. I know I am.
 

Edit: MacOS Big Sur’s Big Secret at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXG5REBi2fo is interesting.

No ETA at the moment. However, I can say that Accordance under Rosetta 2 on my M1 MBP is every bit as snappy and fast as it is on my Intel core i9 iMac. I've noticed no perceivable difference. And on Geekbench, the M1 surpasses the iMac on single-threaded scores and is pretty close on multi-threaded. All that to say, Accordance running under Rosetta 2 is not going to be an issue for anyone.

Great to know! Accordance has always been snappy. It’s even snappy on my 12” PowerBook G4 (running Accordance 9), and I “may” get to get my hands on an iMac G3 in which to try Accordance on. :-)

Someone who uses Logos said the same thing about his MacBook Air. He compared his 2019 MacBook Pro, i9, 32 GB RAM, Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB GPU, with 2 TB SSD to his MacBook Air M1, 8-Core GPU, 8 GB RAM, with 512 GB SSD (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_p8wtfzRzfs, see specs at 2:10 and 2:29), timing the same operations in both. He concluded that the two laptops were “roughly equivalent,” see at 25:52 ff. (equivalent when running Logos, but he said probably not when video editing).

I was going to wait until Parallels Desktop for M1 came out, but with this kind of performance, I will probably get one before then. And, I’ll probably sign up for the Parallels for M1 Prototype, at https://www.parallels.com/blogs/parallels-desktop-apple-silicon-mac/.

As the iPad Apps run on the Mac, for me the question is: What will happen first? Accordance ran direct fully on the iPadOS or the other one: MacOS ran on iPad (and therefore Accordance on the iPad).

Apple see the (blinding) light and put a proper chip in the ipadPro which runs the full os!

I'm pretty sure that Apple sees iPadOS as a "full" OS. As for chips, the chips in iPads are essentially the same chips in the new M1 Macs, albeit with some modification.

 

I still believe their longterm goal is to increase the abilities of iOS/iPadOS enough to allow it to take the place of the Mac. Their current strategy is pretty ingenious--if developers make their apps run native on M1 Macs, these apps can be made to run in iPadOS much easier. Everything is headed to iOS/iPadOS one way or another. As I've always said, once you see Xcode and Final Cut Pro released for iPadOS, know that the end of the Mac is near.

Weve had the surface for ages. There are reported hacs that you can run leopard on the ipad. 

It just seems apple have either: 
lost their way or

are trying to maximise profits by bringing out interims before the inevitable.

 

I can and will wait. 
 

however, i think macs will still be around for a long time as they still have logic pro

I don't think they will do that for a very long time if ever.  They have two very different interaction models and they've shown no interest in merging them.  The Surface is a bit of an inelegant hybrid that is very "un-Apple".  Apple has tried to make it easier for developers to build for both iOS and Mac and for them to have consistent visual experiences, but the interaction model of a tablet is very different than a mouse / keyboard.  The Apple leadership have certainly doubled down every time they've been asked about merging or bringing MacOS to iPad..

Rick,

 

Can you tell me the steps you did to get Accordance mobile to install on your Mac with OS Big Sur?

 

I'm assuming the prerequisite is Big Sur not the M1 chip.

 

I have an old MacBook Air I'd like to try it on.

 

Thanks!

Only Big Sur is not enough. You need the Apple silicon chip, like you have on the iPhone/iPad.

Steve, it will only work on Macs with an Apple Silicon chip, such as the new M1 Macs that were released a couple of weeks ago.

Actually the M1 is the prerequisite for iOS apps. You can't run them on Intel even if you have Big Sur installed.

But I should've have answered the "how." If you're on an M1 Mac, search for Accordance in the Mac App Store. Click on the iPhone and iPad Apps tab, and download Accordance for iOS.
