My "Go to" Bible
Since the days of Palm, Blackberry and other PDA's, it's amazing that there are literally dozens of different translations and dozens of different commentaries available at ones fingertips. Olive Tree's app is easy to access and easy to use (and this by someone not the least bit tech savvy), with their Resource Guide handily cross referencing Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, and other reference materials... even one's personal notes.
I use it for my individual Bible study/daily devotions, and my husband uses it in far more detail and depth for his sermon prep.. It can be as simple or complex as someone wants to make it, and there is no lack of choices in Olive Tree's library. It moves a bit more smoothly than Laridian, is far simpler to navigate that Accordance, and is more affordable than Logos...
One thing to note... When you purchase books, I recommend you always go through their website instead of buying them through the app... 1. If there's a problem you can return the book for a full refund, 2. You can earn points and get discounts...
One thing I would improve... The search engine... When a word or phrase is searched, it only searches the book that is open... (As opposed to Laridian which will search your entire library...)
After using a number of computer programs, PDA and other Bible apps for years, I find that Olive Tree is the app I start with, end with, and use the most in between...
Favorite of Fav's Apps...Olive Tree
I have used several Bible Study apps, but when I found and started using Olive Tree, it had changed my life! Not only does it have all of the book resources one would need to do a complete Bible study, but it has Hebrew texts also. I find now, since using OT, that I want to use it more & more! It has gotten me into a more consistent study by it's ease of use and multi function split book references... And to be able to annotate my verses, right where they are is wonderful, never searching for a verse or note I've learned, couldn't be easier!
It has all of my tangible bible texts right in it, and references too! I love how I can interstate my notes into the app itself. But over all, having the Bible & all these wonderful reference tools right at my fingertips every where I go, has been the biggest blessing! That alone is a Five Star Review!! Thanks Olive Tree! It does need a bit if bookmark work, and I would love it if they made a whole color-scheme, more colors to choose from where to deciding on to categorize your different bible versus or other study material! Just don't think what you can do with this app, plus it is totally sync able to iPad,Mac Computer, iPhone... That's terrific!
Thanks Olive Tree!
Lots of features @ titles
I've used this app since my Palm Pilot and I've been very grateful to have been able to port over my previous purchases to iOS. If you just want to read the Word, this app may be a bit too much. If you want to do Bible study and access all sorts of resources (maps, commentaries, devotionals, reading schedules, etc.), this is a great choice! There are also a lot of free resources including all of John Piper's sermons and a few devotionals. Due to all the app features, it can be clumsy to tap through all the menus, but setting your own gestures (taps and swipes) makes things faster. There are several good e-books on sale in the Olive Tree store. Unfortunately, the app is not the most easy to use ereader, especially for titles (such as those from Rose Publishing) which are graphics heavy in their print forms. Some titles (such as the Chinese and Spanish Bible translations) are quite a bit more expensive than elsewhere but Olive Tree has frequent sales--one may need patience to wait for them. Titles are also frequently updated and it can be a bit of a pain to often be downloading title updates.
