What's New in Version 6.0.7
We're always hard at work to make your Bible reading and study experience as amazing as possible!
This update includes a minor bug fix.
If you enjoy the app please leave us a review in the app store.
As a minister and teacher of the word of God, nothing could be so convenient as having all the different biblical related books conveniently at my fingertips. I have an IPad mini and an IPod both downloaded with the Olive Tree application. I use the IPad mini to prepare my lessons and sermons. Then I carry the Ipad with me to preach and teach directly from it. I copy and paste the scriptures from the various bibles directly to my teaching lesson or to my sermon. No more writing on tablets and legal pads. No more typing lessons on my computer and then having to print them out and place in a binder. Those days are gone! It is so convenient now to simply copy and paste. And the King James Bible with the Strong's, I just tap and receive the Greek or Hebrew word definition of a word. Plus I have the bible commentaries too for to aid me in my study and preparation. I am a bow hunter and fisherman and I take the IPod with me where ever I go. In a tree stand or on my boat I always have Gods word at my disposal. But where ever I travel, I take the Olive Tree app with me either with the IPad or the IPod. I love the Olive Tree app. Thanks!
Best Bible Study Application
The new version is spectacular. Very clean, simple display with all the tools you need and none of the clutter! Having used other Bible study apps, Olive Tree is clearly the most mature Bible study application on the market. It is easy to use and full featured. The Bibles that have Strong's numbers are particularly useful. I use the categorized bookmarks to track memorization for our whole family. The book ribbons show where we are at in all five current locations (2x OT, Psalms, Proverbs, NT) as we read though the Bible together. We use the notes for Bible study preparation, and I even bring my iPad to Bible study for discussion, quick lookup of cross references, and a ready concordance. The latest update was quite buggy and has been very painful. However, they have released bug fixes quickly and are working hard to stabilize the application. I look forward to the future features they will be able to build upon this newly released architecture.
Great if you have one with Strong's Concordance.
I have been using Olive Tree for a while now, at first I had it without Strong's Concordance but around Christmas I was able to download it for free! While the app is immensely useful without Strong's since you have split screen which makes it easy to compare passages (the search feature is also amazing!) if you get The ESV Strong's Concordance (even if you need to pay a bit) it is totally worth it. And very helpful when preaching or even just studying.
Strong's concordance is simple this, some words are highlighted, and you press on it to show it's meaning in Hebrew or Greek. From that you can also search for the word itself (and where it occurs in Hebrew Or Greek Scriptures) and gain further understanding of what that word means in any given passage while understanding how it is used in other passages. After all, Scripture builds off of scriptures!
Never the less, if you cannot get Strong's, the app is still an outstanding Bible App, you do get a few resources for free, including multiple Bibles, and notes as well as commentaries, in addition to that it has a way to highlight and take notes as most Bible Apps do. I use it on an iPad Mini and it works fabulously, though I'd guess any piece of Tech would work the same.
So all in all, get it, especially if you can get Strong's Concordance.
