What's New in Version 6.2.6
Thanks for using the Olive Tree Bible App!
We fixed a number of bugs that were trying to get in the way of your reading and study.
If you enjoy the app please leave us a review. It really means a lot!
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.
Problem with latest update crashing
Edited on May 8, 2017.
I had a scare when I had a minor issue with the latest update and support instructed me to follow three things to clear up this minor issue. First thing after rebooting my iPad was to rebuild library which did nothing. Second thing was to reset settings. After this I lost my library that I had purchased and all my extensive notes and tagging that cross-reference each other. After attempting to go to the store and restore purchases where it only identified 10% of my purchases I felt I had nothing to loose and deleted the app. Downloaded it again and downloaded over 100 purchased items. Once this was done I had my old application that I loved back. This app is very complicated under the hood and appears to be very sensitive. But I still love what I can do with it. Read below.
------------was five stars but now---four---
Wonderful app. Only once have I had a problem and It was for a short while. I did not realize the developer set up a repair facility in the settings of the app within the iOS settings page. The Olive Tree support team sent me to this and it fixed my issue.
I love the integration across multiple resources that normally are not associated.
Use of the note feature and tagging has been used to set up my own personal concordance and commentary section within the app.
This is one of my most used applications across my iPhone and iPad.
Olive Tree has it all!
I really think this program has others beat "in spades", and I use it daily! The vast amount of free resources and amazing study guides with additional resource materials that are already integrated into the text of the Bible u prefer (via footnotes and I text notes, that pop up additional info when clicked--) all work together to make this system of bible study, (where new resources can be integrated also,) my favorite resource for Bible Study. The ability to purchase and download extra bible versions is great. And they do regular upgrades as new sources become available. Try the free stuff out. What is free in this app most people pay for in other apps. It is a great stand alone bible and study bible, as well as even more powerful when you can, over time, invest in additional resources you find particularly helpful!
