Version 6.0.12 - Disappointed in the new update!!! - by P. Limato on Oct. 20, 2016
I've been a long time user of this Bible app and have enjoyed the different updates that have been developed and implemented over the years since I've had it. It still is very useful. However, the recent update has eliminated a feature that I looked forward to receiving each week and weekday, and that is the verse of the week and verse of the day. That appears to have been stripped from the app completely. There is a new 'Message Center' that tells about different products you can purchase to use in the app. That's all fine and good, but I hope that this isn't the start of the Bible App+ solely becoming a cash cow for Olive Tree. Please bring back the 'Verse of the Week/Day feature. Remember the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
I have been using Olive Tree for a couple of years now to study, teach, and grow. It has literally been around the world with me, to VBSs in Ukraine, men's Bible study, Sunday school, and the pulpit, constantly next to me in church. It has proven to be invaluable with my collection of books in one small package. My favorite, and most useful feature to me is the split screen notes. I have hundreds of notes, from which I do the majority of my teaching. It has been an excellent way for me to collect my thoughts and stick to the text of Scripture. Thank you, Bible App! :-)
A good app
Would be a great app if it could function in the side by side or dual screen on iPads... And it could be a great app, but there are some little annoyances when using a bluetooth keyboard... annotating a note for instance. The text box only covers a small portion of the screen, as if you were using the onscreen keyboard... They aren't inhibitive things, just a little annoying because it could be better. But all in all I find this a useful app on a daily basis.
