Still loving it, Sept, 2016
I have used this app for years. It is great for use during Bible studies, Sunday school, and personal study. I love the highlighting features, the ability to make notes, and the cross reference is helpful. Like being able to switch versions without losing my place. Great app! Nov. 19, 2014 edit: I use this Olive Tree app in my personal Bible study every morning. I love that I can copy a verse(s) and paste into my journal, and if it's not clear, and can switch to a different version of the Bible and be at the same location. I did purchase the Student Reference bundle that they had at the time I bought it, which was around $50 or $60 on sale, but that was what a nice Bible cost and came with several versions, and I have added a couple more versions. I'm sure I'm not using all the features of the app, but the ones I use are indispensable to me. If you are serious about Bible study, this is a great tool!
Notice I title this tool, "a wonderful tool" and give it 4 of 5 stars. With that said there are a few things I would love to see changed. One is a major item. I would like to be able to open the app on my IPad and be able to go to other apps or the internet and return to the Bible Study +6 app and continue working where I left off in the app. As it is, I have to wait for the app to reload, which is approximately 30 to 45 seconds. That amount of time is nothing unless you experiencing this 100 times a day. Also in the "Note" area and other areas of the app, the font is really small. Having said all that, I don't think there is a better app available to study God's Word. Thank you for creating and maintaining it.
Incredible Bible and Bible study tool
I've been using this app now for about a year. Previously I had been using some other Bible apps, but was just not able to dive deep in Bible study because of limited Bible study tools. The Bible by Olive Tree is powerful; so many resources can be added. Also, many of the resources link to the Bible so that while studying the references are readily available! On the iPad Pro, this becomes likely the most advanced Bible study tool ever developed. Thank you Olive Tree for continuing to advance this app so that those that desire to dive deeper into the Bible can do so more easily (than ever before) and that God's truth may be known!
