Customer Reviews

So much to love!

I love that Bible Study is equally accessible on all my devices—iPad, iPhone, MacBook Air and iMac. It makes it handy for both reading and for more in depth study. I’m a pastor and find it incredibly helpful to use Apple’s split screen function (on my iMac) where I have Bible Study on one side and Pages on the other. Super. I also love the tremendous assortment of resources that are available. I use two multivolume commentary sets quite regularly. This is a great app and I would highly recommend it. Way to go, Olive Tree!

Powerful and easy to use resource

I’ve been using this app for several years and it simply keeps getting better and better. Whether it was the addition of the app on the desktop platform as well as mobile (iPad & iPhone), or the high quality commentaries, dictionaries, study Bibles, or other BIble study tools it’s amazing. The auto syncing is great as it means it doesn’t matter which device I make a highlight, note, or bookmark from - it’s on all my devices. This is no longer just an app for me. It’s the Bible I carry with me wherever I go.

Great Tool

I’ve been using Olive Tree for several years now and I find it very useful. I keep all my notes and studies in it. I use it wherever I go. I don’t know what I would do without it. Thanks Olive Tree.
