Great, but lacks one basic function

This is my favorite Bible reading app (and I’ve tried a bunch). The only thing this app is missing is the function to compare a single Bible passage side by side to its equivalent in other Bible versions/translations (like e-Sword does). As of now, you can only compare two, one verse the main window the other on the split view window. I own a bunch of Bibles with Olive Tree and I would love to see how the same passage appears in all the different Bibles I own side by side, just that specific passage. I suggest you add a new section and call it Compare Passage or something of the sort, and just implement this verse comparison functionality for multiple Bible versions simultaneously. I don't think it will be too hard for the developers, as the verse location pointers are already there for all the Bibles they offer.

Also, a button to swtich to dark mode switch the desktop app like you have on the mobile app would be really nice.

If this app had those two basic functions, it would be perfect and I would give it 5 stars. All that said, I still love this app.


I’m a Catholic priest, and I love this Bible app. I use it across my devices - laptop, iPad, and iPhone - so it’s always available to me. I appreciate its extensive library - it’s amazing how many Bible programs do not offer access to Catholic Bibles, as though only Protestants read the Bible! This app gives access to multiple Bibles in multiple languages. I use English, Spanish, and Greek on a regular basis. I love that I can have different languages in split windows, so that I can compare them side-by-side. It’s amazing how much comes through when you read the Bible in different languages!

I also appreciate the study resources that can be synced with the Bible, so that I can view commentary and notes, right alongside the biblical text. I use the app when I’m teaching Bible study at church - highlighting text I want to discuss, adding my own notes that I can call up as I need them, and supplementing my teachings with the commentary, study notes, and maps provided by the app.

It’s truly amazing!

The Most Important App EVER!!!

“The Bible Study App” at first took some time to get used too. I went from having hard copies of an Amplified/KJV Bible, Concordance, and a Vines to using an iPhone, iPad, or MacBook. The best part of the app is that your account seemlesly syncs thru the various devices you use. I recommend ensuring your most frequently used Bible(s) and study guides are downloaded into the app first. Then take some time to go thru the varioius setup options to make the sure the App looks, feels, and operates the way you like it. When I need help making a decision at work, I quickly utilize this App. During my personal study time, I use this App. I’m not a preacher, I am simply someone who tries to do my best to make decisions as our Heavenly Father (and Jesus Christ) would; and this App assists me with the leadings of the Holy Spirit and has conviently manifested Christ into my everyday life in a more profound way. It is truly, the best App I have ever purchased!
