Bible by Olive Tree App Details

Studying the Bible shouldn’t be hard. Bible by Olive Tree equips you with easy-to-use Bible study tools and resources so you can stop skimming Scripture and get answers—for free. Here are 4 ways you’ll be set-up for studying God’s Word: 1) NO WIFI That’s right, you don’t need a WiFi connection to access your Bible (and all the other tools!). You could be in the middle of the Amazon or on top of Mt. Everest. If your phone is working, so is your offline Bible app. 2) MORE THAN JUST A BIBLE God has been speaking to His people, through His people, for thousands of years… and that takes some research to understand! This is why we provide 1000s of resources to help you go deeper into God’s Word—because studying the Holy Bible shouldn’t be hard. And when we say “resources,” we mean: -DAILY READING PLANS -DEVOTIONALS -BIBLE MAPS -STUDY BIBLES -COMMENTARIES -EBOOKS -GREEK & HEBREW TOOLS -AND SO MUCH MORE 3) TECH + DESIGN Not only do we implement unique features into our app, but we do it with style. Our favorite is the split-screen window: The Study Center. You can use the Resource Guide tab to access any of the resources available in our app and read them right alongside the Bible of your choice. It even does all the hard work of tracking with you, verse by verse. Studying the Bible just became the easiest it has ever been. 4) CUSTOMIZE YOUR BIBLE Want more highlighter options? That’s fine! Pick your own color, thickness, and change it to underline instead. Have trouble reading small print? Increase the font size! Reading at night? Change the theme to be easier on your eyes. You can save your favorite passages, drop a book ribbon, create a note, add tags, and sign up to receive a daily Bible verse. Best part? Your highlights, notes, and resources sync between all your devices. BIBLE TRANSLATIONS If you’re wondering about our different English translations, this app comes with NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV and more (available in-app). Speak a different language? No problem! We have Bibles in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, French, and others. We also have other popular translations available for in-app purchase! Here are a few: -The Message (MSG) -New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) -New Living Translation (NLT) -The Passion Translation -Christian Standard Bible (CSB) -Amplified Bible (AMP) -New American Standard Bible (NASB) FREE STUFF Our passion is inspiring you to connect with God and His Word through technology. Not only is this a free Bible app, but we also have 100s of free resources—all day, every day. You can access these in our in-app store. INEXPENSIVE BIBLICAL RESOURCES YOU CAN TAKE WITH YOU There’s no need to spend lots of money on paper resources that sit on a shelf. By investing in digital resources, you will be able to get the answers you need wherever you are—even offline. Stop flipping pages aimlessly and get Bible study tools that do the hardest work for you! In our app, we have all your favorite Bible study tools and resources available for purchase.

  • Something ha gone wrong?

    By Grammy25
    I love the Amy Carmichael, Edges of His Ways. Something is wrong with the latest update. Cuts off top line of the reading with that green bar. Yikes!

    By ...Tim...
    I’ve been a long time Olive Tree Bible App user, I’ve even used it as my main Bible for long periods of time. I have extensive highlights and notes throughout the Bible. I was super disappointed when landscape view was removed, it’s needed to read Poetry with proper single column formatting. Anyway very happy to have it back. Olive Tree is my favorite Bible app and a wonderful resource for anyone wishing to dig deep into the Word of God.
  • Worst upgrade since Vista?

    By Betrayed and Confused
    OT continues to show they either don’t use or understand their program. The 7.1 release does two bad things, and one HORRIBLE one. The two things a user does the most often — change books/translations and open/close the resource guide (now “study center”) — now take two taps to open instead of just one, and another one to get rid of the stripes. Further, instead of the Resource Guide button being right under your thumb when reading landscape (which I always do, to get two-page mode), now you have to reach all the way to the top of the screen for it. So, harder to get to, and double the taps. Every time you want to open it. Searches and bookmarks suffer the same fate — three times the taps as before. And, horribly, the mode to keep the most-used icons on-screen to try to cut down on the taps now takes up extra space at the top and bottom of the screen. In addition, there are two ugly green stripes taking up MORE space on top and bottom, for absolutely no reason. So less text displayed. Further, unless it’s locked, it actually occludes text. Occludes text. In 2018. Windows 95, anyone? In summary, it takes three times as many taps to do high frequency tasks, and they reduced the amount of text available on the screen. The alleged “study” program is now actively working against you as you try to study. On top of all that, we now have ads on our menu. I don’t want to see an ad in my Bible, ever. There’s been no increase in actual functionality in years — no user-defined reading plans, no “see a verse/passage in all available translations,” no quick lookup of a verse without having to leave your current spot, no NOT searches (Jesus AND NOT Christ), and on and on. Why not use something else? Well, like democracy, it’s the worst thing out there, except for all the others. Changes that impede productivity when using the app are bad because we USE THE APP! But this one is bad enough I may have to rethink it. ——————————— The good news is that the 6.3.3 release fix appears to fix what OT broke and didn’t test on 6.3.2. The bad news is they felt the need to say they fixed "nothing major" in the release notes. They killed every one of their Strong's bibles, as well as notes in every Bible, and it was "nothing major." This is a company that does not get it.
  • Good resource

    By Vertical36
    Love this app. Easy to navigate and use the various study options. However I would love more highlighting/underlining/marking options. Have had to use a competing app at times to utilize said options.
  • Great app, but...

    By LiveInFaith
    I have used Olive Tree for years and it is awesome! I have found the “Resource Guide” functionality amazing and the ability to access thousands of titles and references is great. But users should be aware of a couple issues: If you build a large library of titles and reference works (many purchased), you will not be able to “share” these titles across accounts, even to another family member. The app says it supports “Family Sharing” but that does NOT apply to sharing a title, book or study reference with a different Olive Tree Bible account, such as a spouse. Yes, you can have multiple devices so why not just log into the same account? Well, unfortunately, all personal notes and highlights you create are likewise “tied” to one Olive Tree account. So, if your spouse wants his/her own notes or highlights, they have to create a separate account...and lose access to all the library resources you have accumulated. Great app, but be aware that these are two big issues.
  • What Happened to the UI ?!&(.?!?? 5 Stars down to 4

    By GTD Meister
    What makes developers decide to scramble their app?!? Functions shuffled all around for little apparent benefit. I’ll probably get used to it but for now it’s just “friction” in the system. I’m a 20-year Olive Tree Bible user, going back to days of my Palm Pilot.
  • Amazing Resources

    By Jacque Richards
    I love that it has the different translations and the ability to look up words using Strong’s Concordance. This is by far one the best bible apps that I’ve ever used and I plan on sticking with it for a long time.

    By Sckaughttie
    this is an awesome study tool. But for some reason the Strong’s stopped working on both of my devices. Please fix I use this tool all the time!

    By Bishop T.
    I use this bible app for all of my Pastoral activities. My daily morning spiritual devotional reading is enhanced by the read through the Bible section. I recommend this app to other clergymen and bible readers. It is a delight to feed my Spirit man with this word daily.
  • Love it! Amazing!!!

    By rj and me
    Thanks for the Bible study app, it really helps me when I don’t have my bible around. ;) I was wondering, something fun you could add to the themes is like a theme where there are little bubbles that fly around and get pushed when you scroll the page. Thanks again you guys are doing great! :D
