    Default Bibleworks on MacBook Pro with Retina Display

    I just made the switch to Mac, to a MacBook Pro with a Retina display. I'm wondering what people's experience with running BW9 is regarding the quality of the fonts? Some programs that aren't "optimized" for Retina displays still look pretty good, but others look incredibly grainy or pixelated. I know Logos looks nice and crisp (even Logos 4); Accordance even though built for Mac has a fuzzier pixelated look. How do the fonts in BW9 look? Any difference between running the native and in a virtual emulator?

    I was running BW8 on my old laptop, just trying to decide if it's worth upgrading to BW9 at the moment. Thanks!

    Here is a screenshot of each of the programs you mentioned side by side on MBP 15" Retina display. I do not know if this provides a sufficient comparison. I personally find BW 9 font display fine, however if you increase the size of the fonts they go to bold. The Mac version has improved greatly, and I expect it to continue to do so. The other option is boot camp or an emulator such as parallels.

    I also do not find the way Accordance looks a problem as some of their users do. Some find it unusable, so it may be my eyes or age that allows me to be more tolerant of the way it displays. In other words, user experiences will vary.

    Here is another shot using Gentium as the font in all the programs.
