Best Christian app so far. 5/5
The Olive Tree is the best Christian app so far. The in app resources are inexhaustible. It embraces the bible text, reading plan bible commentaries, bible dictionaries, devotional books.
Every Christian or anybody that is studying Christianity should get the Olive Tree app.
Those who have the means should consider sponsoring and subsidising this nebulous app so as to make is available to those who cannot afford it
God bless you!
Great app! 5/5
This is my favorite APP, period. I don’t use any other!
Best Bible App out there! 5/5
By Kyle Menasco
I LOVE this app!! It is so helpful in my daily reading and my deeper Bible study. The Resource Guide is such an intuitive, ground breaking tool. Do yourself a favor and download now!!!!
Love the app. 5/5
I love having God’s Word with me everywhere I go. The free Bible studies included in the app help to keep my study of God’s Word on track at all times.
It would be a 5 star app if there wasn’t a glitch with the search bar. Sometimes it will not pull up what you are looking for and you have to go back a page & then come back into the search icon to try it again..
The search bar is one of the most important items in a Bible app.
Note taking 5/5
The one thing I wish would be improved is the note taking for bibles/resources. It would be amazing to have Apple Pencil support for writing notes.
Love the convenience! 5/5
By TN Girl 54
Great having the Bible with me when waiting for appointments etc. to read anywhere.
Reading the Bible though 5/5
By Witness Warrior
I like the fact that I’m at my own pace to read though the book God has given to us to learn more about him.
Extremely Effective 5/5
This bible app gives the readers everything they need to study God’s truths. This app is for every level of growth.
One of the best Bible study tool available today. 5/5
Olive tree Bible is one of the best Bible study tools in the world today, I have been using it for more than 5 years now.
Very reliable, educative and impactful. The split window makes Bible study and note taking very easy and convenient.
Amazing bible study app, could not recommend it more! 5/5
From great resources to helpful user interface, this app is excellent!
Comprehensive resourse 5/5
Their store contains more Biblical knowledge than I could use in three life times. Excellent resource.
Best Bible app I’ve ever used 5/5
I’ve been using Olive Tree for about 4 years now and it is my go to Bible app. I use it for everything from my simple Bible reading to intense Bible study. I also have daily devotionals purchased in my Olive Tree.
As far as Bible study goes, it is the easiest to use that I’ve found. I have the Greek and Hebrew built in with Strongs, and I have multiple commentaries that I can refer to alongside my Bible. I love that everything you do in Olive Tree works together and links to the other material that you have.
It’s just as easy on your phone or tablet, all the same.
Great tool for studying God’s word! 5/5
I love the split screen option and that you can choose different translations to see side by side. I also love that references are pop ups and therefore, you don’t loose your original spot of study.
1. more historical maps and artifacts
2 links to show current day locations.
3. links to commentaries.
All as pop ups so we don’t loose our original study spot.
Thank you again and kudos for the design of this app, it helps me jump easily to and fro when studying.
Fast, Smooth, Super resourceful 5/5
I can’t say enough. This bible app is the best I cam across. Such a help in my studies. Learning how to preach from it has been fun.
I am a Pastor and want to deepen my knowledge of God, and with all I have to do, this will take one thing off my list. This is directive and pure Word. Thank you.
Keeps Me On Track 5/5
By C Webb
I love the reminders to read daily. Great way to stay in the Word daily!
A must have 5/5
I love this app
Great resources! 5/5
I have been using this a few years now and I love it! I have several versions and still do Bibles on Olive Tree. My parents now use it as well. I am just now discovering how to truly use the split window and it is an eye opener. Now give me the ability to justify the text, and we are golden!
Love the OT! 5/5
Great app. Can be expensive but has more flexibility in choosing the resources you actually want and use.
Great app 5/5
A great tool for studying the Bible. The mobile version for the ios is great. Also the windows 10 version for my laptop is great.
Not as good as before 3/5
I like the many resources you can have in one place with this. They made a major change to the appearance of the app, maybe one year ago though. I liked the old look a lot more. Now I have to hide the tool bar when I'm reading, otherwise the appearance is too jarring and distracting from my reading. The study window where you can read another translation, or dictionary is more cumbersome now. It used to have a cute little tab that blended in nicely when not in use, and could be easily pulled up when needed. I don't know if it was visible with the tool bar hidden, because I never used to hide the tool bar. I now have to display the tool bar to make the study window "plus" sign visible, which also has study window written out over a not so nice green color. The tool bar has a shopping cart in the middle now, which sits right at the top of your screen. I can only surmise that the makers of the app are moo concerned with us buying things than us enjoying our Bible reading experience. One good change is easier access to a Bible reading plan with a button on the tool bar.
Great Bible resource 5/5
• Free Olive Free account syncs all your Bibles, resources, reading history, notes, highlights, book ribbons, saved passages, and tags
• Large library of Bibles and resources with discounts and sales offered regularly (my favorite is ESV Strong’s Bible)
• Highlighted verses show as highlighted even if you change to a different Bible or different Bible translation
• Split screen view allows opening two resources simultaneously
• Lots of advanced customization options (I mean LOTS!)
Not so good
• Highlighted text looks ugly (it attempts to emulate how highlighted text looks in a physical book)
Great Bible app 5/5
Just got a free NIV version. Olive Bible is so great. Thanks developers
It very good thing for study
Live study notes 5/5
By AW Remley
I am impressed at how efficient the good Bible study program is when combined with life study notes application.
The most wonderful app. Easy to use and keeps all notes and highlighting right with the verses. No more shuffling through journals to find a comment. Excellent.
I would give 5 stars but..... 3/5
Where can I found the history? I used to be able to find all the scriptures that I read throughout the week, but now it only has a bookmark? Can we have that feature back? Or else please tell me how to find my history? Thank you.
Broken since update 1/5
I purchased the NRSV app, which always worked. Now that they force everything to go through this Bible Study app, my purchase has disappeared. This app is solely designed to sell you more stuff. It never works, despite all the “help” and it seems to be based around the concept of forcing you to have yet another login and password in life, which the old NRSV app didn’t require. This is the only app on my iPhone phone that has literally never worked.
Update: developer offered to help if I find the receipt proving purchase of NRSV. That’s crazy. Never had to do that with any App Store purchase ever. Every other developer has a way to restore purchases!
Go to App 5/5
In my personal study as well as preparing to teach Bible Classes, this is my go to App. I have several Olive Tree Apps on my IPad. I place various Bible Translations in one. I place commentaries in a second, writings of the Church Fathers in a third and maps, concordance and such in another. This allows me to move between various resources with ease.
It has been some time now since I first wrote a review of this app. My feelings have only grown stronger. An essential
The Best Bible App 4/5
By Jean E Lane
I have tried a few and this is the best. Download free versions and you don't need wi-for or your data. Switching from book to book is so easy when doing a bible study. And switching versions to see the same verse for added clarity is also so easy. Using the split screen on a phone is not that great for me so I don't use that function much. I won't switch!
Not sure why people complain about the scrolling. You can scroll up and down to your hearts content or flip pages. It’s all in settings! I still love this app over any other.
The only improvement I can suggest: have a “back” function. There used to be one for Android. I don’t know if it still exists on that platform. Many times when I study a passage, I want to look at a related passage, not through links. There is no way to just return to where I was without choosing the verse or going for a bookmark. A little back arrow would be lovely!
Two things! Otherwise great 4/5
Great app that I use all the time. Love it. I just would like to see the ability to see all the translations of a verse at once for comparison. Also would like to see two columns of text for landscape view. Thanks!
Always here! 5/5
By Can't say enough!
I’m a mix of an old fashioned, traditional, paper and bindings girl.
I love ACTUAL books!
But.. I also really like technology and all the resources I can have with me wherever I go.
I enjoy that the Olive Street app gives me so many resources that are super handy and always with me.
I also appreciate that I’m not obligated to purchase a big set of resources, rather I can choose ala cartel what I want and add to my library as I see the need or can budget more books.
And finally, it seamlessly syncs across my devices.
I recommend it for sure!!
Excellent App! 5/5
This app has been my "go to" Bible since it was on a Palm Pilot. Now I buy books on it too! It's an excellent, well thought out, feature-rich app that has continued to grow with me in my spiritual walk. I'm grateful for all the work put into it.
Best Bible Study App 5/5
I take this Bible to church with me, it a very useful tool. I can keep up with the change of verses during the sermon, plus highlight, underline or make notes with ease. I think it's the best Bible App out there! You can do everything with this Bible App, it has great devotionals that you can tap into, you can purchase to view maps of the area in which you are reading at the time and cursor highlight a word you don’t know to find its definition. Personalize this Bible into what version that you prefer, scrolling side to side by pages or continuously up & down and the font & size to see or read better with. It should be downloaded for off line reading but will keep the changes that you make in the cloud. It’s My favorite ❤️
Great Bible Study App 4/5
I use this app on a daily basis for my in-depth Bible Study. I love the notes functions, especially the verse hyperlink capability. My only reason for giving four stars instead of five is because it has not incorporated audio versions like other apps that cost less. I listen to the Bible frequently while driving. If it had this option, I would need no other Bible app. Thanks for considering!
Good but could have a bit more improvement 5/5
It has everything that you would need but I would be better with a audio speaker so if you are busy you can listen but be doing other things at the same time 😃
Great app the most complete biblical app 5/5
Excellent tools. Thanks!
Great Feature Set 4/5
I've been using this app for several years, now. Mostly I stay with it because it has a great set of features, like no other. Highlighting down to the word level, inserting notes anywhere, a split view option and a good collection of supported gestures that make it easy to navigate quickly anywhere all combine to make a really useful study tool.
The reliability issues the app has had in the past have seemed quite well cleaned up. It has been several years, now, since any real problems have prevented my using it. While I’m glad for this, I’m very disappointed that this latest release has taken away the ability to search within an open resource, such as a second translation in “parallel view.” I used this frequently, and now will have to constantly switch between OT and another app to do this. Why would they take that functionality away? I sure hope they reconsider this serious deficiency.
Unable to open this app. 1/5
By Buck I Lady
I have save data, off loaded the app and reinstalled, but I am still unable to open this app! Very disappointed
Great study app!! 5/5
Best I’ve found for bible study and note taking.
Olive Tree 5/5
I believe Olive Tree to be the best thing since God gave use the written Word. I don't always have adequate time for Bible study. This app allows me to make the best use of my time. I have many other biblical resources with this app; hundreds of dollars worth. Every time I have extra money I buy more. I feel like a budding Bible scholar. Love this app.
It is great just like God...!
Landscape view back 5/5
Thank you so much for bringing landscape you back.
Intriguing App 5/5
The app has helped me in my faith journey. The ESV commentary is especially insightful and Kingdom Reading Plan is among the best I have ever used. The app is the perfect resource tool to help the reader understand the Bible.
Best bible app I have ever found 5/5
By Banjo buggy
I don’t care what I’m trying to look up, it is so easy with olive tree. I can quickly go from one version to another version for a diff view. There is no other bible app that even comes close to olive tree...
The Best 5/5
By Mennonite Guy
I have used Olive Tree since the old Palm OS days. Love the way I can take notes linked to a passage and then retrieve them during later study.
Best Bible study app! 5/5
By Pilgrim Li
I've use this app on my Mac, iPad, and iPhone. It is so great! I love the resource guide the best! A! powerful and convenient!
The Word that gives Light 5/5
By disciple Lou
I’ve used the olive tree bible study app for some time now! It’s truly one of the best and comprehensive ways to study The Word , the various resource tools, and guides it has to offer, helps in search, for meanings of words, and the way you can navigate in different translations to get a better understanding of the scriptures. Thanks be to God, for the increase of knowledge, and God bless Olive Tree for putting it together. In Jesus name, amen.
Bible by Olive Tree 1/5
Regarding the new layout in version 7, please provide a setting with an option for the version 6 layout. The new layout is too confusing and commercialized. When that is available I will up the rating to 5 stars.
Please provide an option in Settings to change the default olive green color scheme to a user chosen color scheme.
Also please remove the floating bar at the top. It’s distracting, deplorable, and time wasting.
Thanks for your consideration.
