Best Bible Study Tool
I have used other readers, but the Olive Tree Reader just keeps getting better. I have over 100 books now loaded on this reader, including several Bible versions, commentaries, encyclopedias, dictionaries, cross references, maps, devotionals and others. It is the equivalent to having your whole Christian library with you all the time. I have it on my iPhone and iPad and use it on my computer as well. All three stay in synch. So accessibility is a strength. But I find a real asset is the reference tool, allowing you to be reading a Bible verse on the left side of the screen and then displays out of your whole library, which sources have references and commentary on the particular verse. This is like magic, already sourcing your library. It allows different views from different sources allowing for a deeper study of the verse or bible section. Or you can just use it to read a devotional or book full screen. They keep improving it. To me, this application has it all and will remain my primary tool for continued Bible Study for years to come.
Window Sync Issues
I love this app and leave only this critique of this current version hoping it is fixed: Sometimes the secondary window does not sync with the default - it seems to be stuck on an older passage I was viewing prior. It's not until I swipe left or right and wait a half second that it syncs up with my default window. Does anyone else notice this at times? Also, another minor qualm; the beginning of the passage it syncs with sometimes seems slightly off (esp. with longer paraphrase versions like the Message)--all to say I'd like to see the secondary window auto sync right away and be a little more accurate in how it matches the default window (what passages it shows and in what position). Last thing is I wish I could make the Strong's version of the Bible app the same color as regular versions (referring the the words of Jesus in red) the Strong's versions have this weird tendency to make the Strong's word off color and the makes my eyes freak out! That's all I have for improvements. Amazing app
Thank you Olive Tree Bible!
Awesome Bible App!
I love the easy operation of this app, the ability to highlight. Even some places that I highlight, I want to emphasize, I underline first, then I'm able to take an important piece of the highlighted area and further highlight with green marker. (You can choose colors for your highlighting preferences). I love the fact that you can compare 2 different translations at once and the pop ups for research. I love, love the fact I can actually have more than one olive tree app that all sync together. With several devises they sync from on to the other plus I can actually copy a section to a note or the note app from one device and paste it in another device. It's like having several bibles and commentaries open in front of you! I absolutely love Olive Tree Apps. After using these for years, I wouldn't ever walk across the street for those "free" bible apps! Never!
