One Great Bible Study App - But Freezes

This Bible study app is amongst the best, if not THE best. The library of book at hand is massive and second only maybe to Logos but only with lesser known and personally less useful material. The use of the app is quite simple once you get the hang of it and the platforms on iOS devices is beautiful. I use this app for just about every sermon I write and often for simple personal daily Bible Study. The only reason i don’t give this 5 stars is becasue I consistently have to force quit the app due to it freezing during random searches in the app. I will type a phrase into the search bar, and the loading wheel will start spinning without end. When I open it up after force quitting I am right back where I was before it froze so no harm done, but an issue nonetheless that can be quite bothersome when working on material. Hope this helps improve the app as I truly will continue to be an Olive Tree user despite small bugs!

Disappointed in the Update

I LOVE the app, it has been the main app I have used almost daily becuase of its simplicity and speed. One feature I loved was the search bar. I go to a Bible school every weekday from 8-3:30, and sometimes when studying a more unfamiliar book like 1 Kings, I have gotten lost on what verse we were on, so instead of interrupting class and asking to see where we are, I would type whatever words the instructor was reading in the search bar, and it would take me to the verse QUICKLY. But now, When I type about 6 words in the search bar, the app stops responding. I keep on force quitting, but restarting the app doesn’t help :(.
I really love this app, and really hope this can be fixed, because the search feature is one of the biggest reasons I use the app.

It’s still a great Bible app, but this “bug” puts a real damper on it for me.

Best of the Bible Apps for the normal user

For comeone like me who likes Bible study and wants a good app with lots of resources this app is wonderful. I have had Logos back years ago in Windows and I have purchased a LOT of dollars worth of Accordance for several years. Accordance gets outdated and is not really user friendly in any case. When my Mac crashed last year I had a new drive put in and I didn’t bother with Accordance again. I installed Olive Tree Bible and have gotten most of the resources I used to have in Accordance that I actually used, as well as some I wanted that I had not had. This app is useful, has a friendly UI and is affordable. They have terrific sales and good user support.
