I've been using Mantis on my ipad for awhile now and I really appreciate how clean and simple it is. That being said, I beleiver there are some improvements that could be made, particularly taking advantage of the ipad's interface:

1. Link Vines definitions by Strong's numbers instead of the english word - I've used other programs that do this and it makes Vines much more accessible and much more powerful

2, Split screen or multiple windows. While the inlne editing and viewing features do work well and are the best solution for a phone, I'd like to see the ability to split the screen or use multiple windows for the ipad. This way you could view 2 translations side by side or a translation and a commentary or other reference book, etc.

3. Use either a split screen or a pop up window for the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. That would be cleaner and more readable. That would also allow you to read the refereenced verses in context, not just the single verse.

4. While I use the CWS it would be nice to have access (by Stong's number) to the Complete Word Study Dictionaries. I love the way the CWS is implemented, but the dictionaries have far more extensive definitions.

Thanks again for a great program

There are two versions of VINE's available, and thus far, we've implemented the one indexed on English words. We'll be offering the Strongs version in the future.

This is coming in a future update.

See above. That should allow you to do this, I think.

This is a separate resource, and we've asked the publisher for a license to these volumes, but so far we have not heard back from them.
