👍🏻 Look No Further - This Is It 👍🏻 ♥️

Still, the best out there. With each revision it keeps, getting better. The key to maximizing the App is utilizing tags for your notes and highlights, and creating appropriate categories to "file" your notes/highlights in.

As a preacher, missionary and gadget addict, I have used, or evaluated all of the "major" brands. I have even compared this App to other Apps with experienced users, and it always is a fact that Olive Tree consistently surpasses all others. My friends always say I wish mine could do that. From sermon preparation (I use the Mac, as well as the iPad version) to sermon delivery and individual study, Olive Tree consistently impresses me. I have a passion for the native languages, and the tools available for native linguistics, which are identical between the Mac and iPad versions, are outstanding and second to none. All of your notes/comments/highlighting are automatically synced between all of your devices, which is an invaluable feature when unanticipated ministry opportunities arise. Switch, or take the initial plunge. You will not be sorry.

Version 6.0.12 - Disappointed in the new update!!! - by P. Limato on Oct. 20, 2016

I've been a long time user of this Bible app and have enjoyed the different updates that have been developed and implemented over the years since I've had it. It still is very useful. However, the recent update has eliminated a feature that I looked forward to receiving each week and weekday, and that is the verse of the week and verse of the day. That appears to have been stripped from the app completely. There is a new 'Message Center' that tells about different products you can purchase to use in the app. That's all fine and good, but I hope that this isn't the start of the Bible App+ solely becoming a cash cow for Olive Tree. Please bring back the 'Verse of the Week/Day feature. Remember the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

A MUST have!

I've used Olive Tree software for over 12 years. It is the BEST Bible app and software around!
We are blessed to have bibles so readily available and Olive Tree makes the UI easy and streamlined. The daily devotionals and Bible reading tools are wonderful!
While you are reading if you come across a word or phrase that you want defined you simply select it and the you'll find "define" in a little pop-up menu and it goes to a dictionary and defines it! If it can't find it you'll find an option to do a web search-all right IN the app.
Thank you Olive Tree for helping me in my walk with The Lord! Keep up the good work!
