The future of bible study 5/5
While I still love the feel, and readability of my good old fashioned paper bible, I am beginning to recognize the value of having so many resources at my fingertips. This is the future of bible study. I can read my NIV bible and have several different options for reference tracking with me at the bottom of the screen. Additionally, taking notes and highlighting is so much easier. Cross-referencing my notes is a breeze. This app is a must for any serious bible study. Of course, you have to purchase many of the versions, but there are some free ones as well. Just remember, someone had to put a lot of time and effort into writing and researching some of the best resources in here. Their time is worth your money (which isn’t really that much). Great app! Thank you.
Love your app and use it daily. Do like not like getting messages every day to get me to buy more resources
Olive Tree Bible Study is a wonderful program! 5/5
I love this app because it helps me to grow in my journey with the Lord. It offers many resources that enable me to learn and study the word of God and enrich my spirit.
I praise God that I found and have been using this app for over 5 years and it keeps getting better!
Been using for years 5/5
Great app with a lot of resources. They are always working on improving it. It could be less buggy, but overall it is a great option

La mejor referencia de la biblia
By Occam’s Razor
Persistently the best Bible app I’ve used. Thank you for creating and constantly maintaining this app on both iOS and macOS.
Great app 5/5
I have another bible app but this one is the best. Multiple version, easy to highlight and copy scripture. Easy to search. I love it.
This is such a helpful tool when studying, you can find everything you wanted and more when researching a topic, I’m mind blown and I was able to answer questions I’ve been looking for for over a year in under 20 minuets, such a helpful app
Love it but for one tiny issue 4/5
By Annabelle M
I’ve used this app for a long time, and have even purchased different bible translations from their store. I love it. It’s so easy to use, and the resources are incredible. My frustration is that it constantly line breaks words, rather than moving the word to the next line. No matter how large or small I make the font, no matter whether I’m using it in landscape or portrait, I cannot for the life of me get it to stop breaking words over two lines. Of all the issues this is small and feels petty, but we are going through Acts at bible study right now, and it’s like every name and every place is split over two lines. It interrupts the flow of the text and is actually driving me bananas. Hopefully it will be fixed in a later update, but for right now I am having to switch to a different app. Which is a shame because I’ve paid for these bibles. I’ve just had enough of the constant word splitting. :(
What happened? 1/5
By Tom Steele
This has been my go to app. It is AWESOME but something bad happened with the last update. I'll update if it gets better but I can't find my way and mostly get spinning circles.
So far so good! 5/5
New to Olive Tree, just created my account yesterday, but have found the resources helpful so far. I prefer reading my actual Bible, but use the app to study maps, find meanings or translations of words and to compare the same scriptures from other Bible versions, such as the NIV vs. King James. The app makes all this simpler and less time consuming. Would like to have access to original Hebrew text resources, which I know might be difficult.....
The Best Bible Study App. 5/5
This is not just a Bible App. This has a ton of advanced features. The split window automatically takes you to the commentary/resource, when you go to a Bible passage. You also can create your own colour markers.
I am a serious Bible student with Master Degree in Theological Studies and pursuing my doctorate. I would highly recommend.
I wish they provide Bibles in many other languages.
I love this app.
WOW!! My 5 star review was DELETED in ONE DAY!!! 5/5
By GTD Meister
What gives, Apple?!?
My previous review was gone, so I wrote a brand new review YESTERDAY, came back to add something today and it’s already DELETED!!
This is GROSSLY UNFAIR to developers and users who take time to write a meaningful review.
Love Love Love Olive Tree 5/5
This is my go-to App for reading and studying the Bible. The app and all the features just seem to keep expanding and getting better. There’s no need for anything else to me. Thank you, and God bless Olive Tree for your outstanding work!!!
Landscape mode returns. 5/5
I just turned my iPhone sideways and the text turned too!
Verses fit so much better.
Update 5/4/2018 1/5
I don’t know what you did on this update. It won’t turn pages, my notes are gone that I created yesterday. This is a major issue in terms of using this app.
My Go-To Bible app 5/5
Great solid app with more power than I'm using. Great translations available. Excellent highlighting options. Appreciate robust note-taking options. Love the multi-platform options.
great, quick resource, when talking with people 5/5
have had this resource for a very long time, and like the handiness of it. being able to quickly access notes or verses is great, also, the ability to cross reference and the add in resources make this a great resource.
still a bit bulky in switching between resources, and at times a bit slow, but not enough to detract from a 5 star rating.
Such a great bible app 5/5
I love this app. The best feature is the ability to read different bible versions side by side
Love it 5/5
What an incredible app. Easy to use, endless resources, what more could you ask for? Love it.
Fabulous, Simply Fabulous! 5/5
By Li'l Boss
Great app with easy to navigate menus, split screen for detailed study, extensive content, reasonable pricing, and portability. This is a wonderful blessing and my favorite Bible study app! I highly recommend it!
And months later, I still do!
Olive Tree Bible on my iPad 5/5
I enjoy having Olive Tree bibles on my iPad & it has become my most used Bible. I have commentaries, many translations & versions of the Bible, and other biblical resources all on one thin iPad. If I were to carry all of these resources wherever I go, I would need a large back pack & have one sore back. Olive Tree allows me to reference all of my downloads, take notes & highlight verses, chapters or sections of scripture to enhance my study and help my memorization of scripture. I am glad to have the side by side view available to see the version I am reading & a commentary at the same time. Studying GOD’s Holy Word is made easy with this app and the notes and highlights are also seen on my phone. Thank you Olive Tree for helping my study of GOD’s Word become more manageable. GOD Bless your ministry!!
Excellent study helps thanks 5/5
By Steven Nyberg
Very AMAZING and in depth way to study and read the word.❤️
Love it 5/5
Very user friendly and well thought out design. A true blessing
Fantastic in a 3rd World Context 5/5
I’m a missionary with limited access to internet. The advantage of Olive Tree is that you can download and use resources to use while outside of internet access. And their sales are wonderful! Even with a missionary budget. Thanks, Olive Tree!
My go to app for bible study 5/5
I like the cross platform sync and the ease of use for the resources you get. Many are free and more are reasonably priced. Keep up the good work, Olive Tree.
Top-notch Bible Study and Accessories 5/5
One of the best Bible-Study formats I've experienced with.
Olive Tree Bible and Bible Study App 5/5
I have tried many Bible study tools for preparing studies, messages, and reading the Bible. Hands down this is the very best. The highlights, notes, bookmarks, and references combine to enhance any pursuit of better understanding of God’s Word. I recommend Olive Tree to anyone interested in furthering their faith
Love the way this App is formatted 5/5
By Chenelle H
This App is very easy to learn. I love the way the tags and bookmarks work. Only disadvantage is that this app charges to use certain versions of the Bible through it and for all commentaries. Still, you can access all of those same resources through other online mediums for free.
Best Bible Study App Ever! 5/5
This app is very simple to use, very intuitive. It comes with a great deal of study helps and this one app alone is really great. It has a full Bible search feature, study notes at the bottom of the page that go with the reading or you can hide that until you need it, easy highlighting, it has several reading plan options and maintains your reading history, and a lot more.
Love it... 4/5
By Silent Giggles
Wish they had the option to have it read aloud. Please work on getting that. I love this app but i had to download another Bible app because that one reads aloud
Worth Downloading 4/5
Really like this app, easy to use. I have downloaded other Bible apps and keep coming back to this one. Only problem I have with this one is the update now makes it harder to go back & see your history. It used to be super easy to just quickly go back to where you were. Now its more of a hassle.
Used to be great... 2/5
1. TOOLBAR COVERS TEXT
Oh guys...let’s talk about this “toolbar” covering the text. This has to be one of the worst and most intrusive UI ideas yet.
The reason I know it’s bad and not just me is because “toolbar covering text” is the first default options when contacting support so you can try and rationalize why it exists.
Is this “feature” more for you...or your users?
I’ve never used it, never will, and feel like it’s a heel in what was once a great bible-reading experience.
If you’re so adamant to not listen to users enough to remove it, at least for the love of Moses, allow a preference in settings to hide it.
2. TOUCH GUIDELINES
Secondly, let’s talk about how danged close together verse, reference, and notes elements are, and how completely unusable this is for your users.
There’s a reason Apple had to release a guidelines standard about how close items should be together for touch-friendliness. I have probably spent nearly five minutes trying to read a note I made for a verse, only to continue to get unwanted cross-referenced verses instead...and I’m on a 12” iPad Pro with like 20pt font!
I have a strong feeling there’s a global CSS style for each of these elements. How about applying even a little padding/margin to these for user-friendliness?
In the past, before iOS updates and my new iPad Pro, I was always able to use the “two-finger swipe to go to next/previous chapters seamlessly.
This feature doesn’t work for manna any longer. I’ll do the two-finger swipe, and you never know if you’re going to go forward, or backward...you just end up in some random place.
Thanks for listening to my rant and desperate plea for a better UI. I’m sure I’m not alone (again esp. for item 1 since it’s a default explanation when contacting you).
This has historically been my favorite bible app, but with these chief complaints of mine going unfixed/addressed for quite some time, I’ll be completely honest, all it will take is for something better to come around for me to defect.
I hope you’ll listen to my feedback, and consider implementing fixes for these in the immediate future.
Thanks again for the app, it’s been amazing for my studies, but I’m a bit disenchanted at present, overall.
Peace be unto you.
Great helpful app 5/5
I have been using this app for years and have been quite pleased with all they have done with it. It is a good thing they do.
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.
