The Olive Tree Team
A great PC bible study app, but it's now only a mediocre iPad app because it has become too bloated. Up until about August, 2014 this app was rock solid dependable and responsive on the iPad. But now it is too sluggish to rely on as a paper bible replacement in a teaching environment. I used to be able to scroll instantly between screens. Now I constantly see the "Loading" message while I wait for the app to respond. This is acceptable for a study aid, but not as a bible while leading a bible study with other people.
While many features have been added, some of the best functions of previous versions have been "hidden" in the program. Loss of the "History" tab from the menu bar is a huge loss of functionality. Highlighting in the HCSB translation is now a challenge. When you tap a word to highlight it, the text suddenly jumps to a different page and this action has to be repeated, often several times. The entire left margin of the screen now functions as if it were the split screen tab. An accidental tap at the right edge of the screen (not the tab itself) result in split screen activation.
That said, I appreciate the responsive service that is available to support the app. The developer's heart is in the right place, but I think the app needs to be optimized for stability on the iPad platform instead of trying to be all things to all users.
Please update for split screen on iPad
Great product, but PLEASE, PLEASE update for full iPad Pro multitasking (split screen and slide over). I REALLY want to use this split screen with a journaling app that I use.
UPDATE: The latest V 6.x update is fantastic. But please support the iOS 9/iPad multitasking features of split screen and pull over. So often I am working in Pages or my journaling app and I really want to have the Bible right up on the other side of my screen.
PREVIOUS REVIEW: I have used variations on their app all the way back to my Palm Pilot. The cool thing is I have not had to repurchase materials as I moved from device to device and even platform to platform. This new version really is off the charts. The previous version was quite useful and utilitarian, but this version is a real work of art. The typography and layout are examples of the best of the iPhone and iPad. I have to say it is now more beautiful and pleasant to read than any printed bible that I have ever had. The ability to carry my whole study library with me is fantastic. I also make great use of the note taking capability (one feature request, enable styled text, bold, underline, fonts etc. in the notes part of the app). I have years of sermon notes in this app. In my opinion this is the best bible app and I use it every day.
Little Brown Light Ministries Loves Olive Tree Software!!!
Love Olive Tree Bible Study App. Now when I travel and teach The Word, all I need is my Bible and my iPhone. My whole library for study goes with me! Don't even need my laptop on trips. I have bibles loaded on my olive tree app so I wouldn't even have to take my bible but I still need to "hold the Word" as I study. I appreciate having the program duplicated on all my devices.
The "Resource Guide" is so helpful. Pulls all of my books together on any topic and scrolls along with me as I study. The maps are amazing. Commentaries, Greek and Hebrew study tools, dictionaries, gospel parallels, bibles in all available versions, maps, photos, devotional books...you name it and Olive Tree has it. Lots of free books are also available.
Can't say enough good things about Olive Tree software. A library in your hand. I thank the Lord every day for creating people who have the knowledge to make these study tools available for the rest of us out here who desperately need them!
