Ratings and Reviews
Love it on my phone, tablet and laptop
This app works on all my devices and I use it every day. I love the reading plans, Bible Translations and study resources (love the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge). Great app to use for linking translations to Greek and Hebrew using Strong’s Concordance. Love the notes available like Dake’s.
Update: January 31, 2018 - I read a review where the reviewer said the resource window was slow to update on the Mac OS X version. I use this app on my MacBook Pro (maxed out memory for better performance in general) and I’m not seeing what I would call “slow” response in the resource window updates as I change verses. I use the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge regularly and find the response to be very good as I scroll through verses and click on the TSK cross references to read the related verses. I also use Strongs and commentaries where I get the same good response. It’s not instantaneous, but the updates happen in under 2 seconds. Performance can be affected by other apps open at the same time and the amount of available memory. I do have to watch one particular website (LinkedIn) in Safari - if that is open then CPU utilization is high and performance degrades. I would suggest using “Activity Monitor” (you’ll find this app in APPLICATIONS/UTILITIES) to see what is using resources if you experience performance issues.
There is No Better Bible Study Application Available Anywhere
I continue to marvel at this application. I used almost all of the competing products for Bible study, and nothing approaches Olive Tree. Its inherent design provides an interface that presents all the information required to study the Word of God without limits.
The resource library provides everything needed to pursue a doctorate in theology and deliver all the study materials to support any study regimen.
Olive Tree remains the best Bible study available anywhere!!!!!
Once again, I provide a review of Olive Tree Bible compendium. Note the term compendium as opposed to Study application. Olive Tree can give any published Bible study application a run for its money, and the references and citations are identical to the print versions. The app also supports a HUGE number of books including some very fundamental and imperative reading, such as John Calvin’s Institutes. Olive Tree leverages the immense video performance of the Retina display and even non-Retina displays providing a user with maps, diagrams, pictures and author created graphics. The visual tools support zooming to deliver valuable User information. I could go on, but that would not be he helpful. The next time someone says to you, I use XYZ Bible Study, ask them to download Olive Tree and give it a spin……you will make a friend for life!!!!!
Good but needs a refresh… STILL.
Its been nearly 18 months and no update for the MAC/PC version? Love the app its just that the improvements seem to be a bit slow in coming at present. The ios version is stellar these days - the Mac version is good but could use a bit of a refresh maybe.
UPDATE - Still no real change in the MAC version to date. In particular, when I change verses, the resource window is slow to respond. Also, if I search for a word or phrase, there should be a way to move that search to the main window but instead I have to retype the reference in on the main window. The non iOS version just isnt as elegant and smooth to use as its mobile counterpart. I use my MacBook and my iPads evenly so theres a clear distinction on UI, ease of use between them. Love the iOS version and tolerate the MAC version at the moment. Hoping for a refresh soon.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE - STILL STILL no real change. It’s functional enough but the same issue continues: You do a search and its a side window thing! Changing versions, using the resource guide etc. are all MAIN window functions predominately but the minute you do a search you have this wrangling to do if you want to research deeper. Just feels convoluted. I’d switch to a different app but I’m heavily invested in their ios versions so here I stay, for the meantime.
