  • Best Bible App!

    by ChiefHowell

    I have been using this App since my first iPad and it's been my favorite. The Mounce NA27/28 Greek NT remains my most used feature. However, having several different translations plus other source material like Josephus' Complete Works in a new translation just makes it better. If you are a Bible/Theology major, this is one MUST have app on your iPad!

    I use this app daily, take notes in it, use the reading plan - I love it. I know that it is all synced up, I know I can find anything I need easily, and if I have ever had a question, the email support is great. One upgrade had a few bugs, and they resolved it quickly. Thank you Olive Tree!

  • It is that good

    by Akajack

    40 years of Biblical Greek education in the palm of my hand. Love the availability of all installed resources.

  • Great App with Resources

    by MN Traveller

    This is a super app which puts many versions and resources easily at my fingertips. With this, I have all the resources I need for home study, church, Sunday School and when traveling.

  • Absolutely Love It!

    by Luciesuefromkalamazoo

    My #1 preferred app for serious Bible study.

  • Fantastic resource for all who want to study

    by BJoslinKY

    I am a Greek and Systematic Theology professor and a pastor, and I use this app and many of its optional resources almost every day. I love it. I can have all of these sources on my Mac, iPad, and iPhone all at the same time, and it means that it's the most portable study library that I've ever seen. (For instance, I can take all 10 volumes of Kittle, Bible maps, the complete EDNT, ESV study bible, etc. all on my phone!) I have been an active user for at least 2 years. I use it to prepare class notes, sermons, and in writing publications such as journal articles and a commentary. It doesn't have to be used purely academically...I've just chosen to beef up my library with many of the academic tools. I also use the Mounce Greek book to teach class, and the new NA28 Greek New Testament as well. It's a fantastic resource that I won't ever be without. Thank you Olive Tree for a resource that I recommend to all. Dr. Barry Joslin Louisville, KY

  • Every day app

    by Gambittx2

    The very best Bible app

  • Life Applications

    by Tmatteson

    The new Life Applications Bibles are wonderful gifts. For the most part it functions well. Would really like to see when reading charts and profile, the links to return to the Bible go to the last location and not the beginning chapter linked from.

  • Invaluable tool and resource

    by User Rate

    This app is a nearly flawless resource for anyone, from the casual reader to the seasoned minister, there are resources for everyone that are not only functional and relevant, but also blend perfectly and work seamlessly within the app environment.

  • Reading Chronological a Breeze

    by fliperzon

    Perfect organization and navigating. Has built in support and structure to assist you in your adventure.

  • Wonderful app

    by tihnow

    Love all parts of it! Just think how good it would be if I was using & had full knowledge of all features! Thank you.

  • The greatest

    by Monterreyblue

    I really love Gods Word and this app is so helpful in reading and studying It. Thanks a lot.

  • A Wonderful Study Resource

    by Joaquin M K

    I have been using this app for about 4 years as my main Bible resource. Olive Tree provides many powerful study tools for download to work with this app. My favorite is the King James Bible with the Strongs reference so one can look up the Greek and Hebrew meanings of the English words for instance. There are great Bible reading plans and note taking. I only wish there was a more complete cross reference tool than the commentaries provide to see were els in the Bible a passage may be found, like in a study Bible. On the iPhone while using the Strongs Bible version it can be hard to turn the page without constantly clicking and opening a word meaning. When using the search exact words as written must be used or no results. I guess that is to be expected but it would be nice if it could respond to a general meaning of ones input when you can't remember exact words in a verse. But overall this a superb app and I use it all the time for personal study, for Group Bible study and during Church service.

  • My favorite app

    by RJ144

    My favorite app

  • Great robust yet easy to use Bible app.

    by A user818

    Great app. Makes reading and studying the Bible easier.

  • Year Four of Using this App

    by Imaginizer

    I love this app. The search options, ability to write and save your notes, and being able to copy Scripture to send in texts or emails has made me a digital Bible reader. I rarely crack open my printed Bible now because I have so many tools I can use right on my phone. I can encourage others with Scripture with just a few touches on my phone. I can study God's Word wherever I am. I use this app daily and have had very few problems. I love this app. It has helped my knowledge of Scripture to grow.

  • OliveTree

    by Proctorkenneth

    I need the WORD. King James Versions Bible - English Bible plus oringal and every Word is real Word not by men but by the Holy Ghost. Every Word is Christ from Genesis to Revelation. All you have to do is read and believe what is written. NOT your own thinking. Believe what the scripture said. We live by every Word of God. It is given to you by God. If you believe the Word. You must live in them and do them. To be the doing of the Word. Walking the way Christ. Then you found the Truth.

  • Love it. I want a Linux client

    by Xopey

    Love it

  • Great Bible App

    by Pkonczal

    I would say that out of all the Bible apps I have this one by far is the best. I have been using it for almost three years now and have taken notes within the app at all my church services. I especially like how I can view my notes on all my devices. The reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is because of some minor bug issues. Overall it is a great app and I have recommended it to many church friends and they still using it to this day. Thank you Olive Tree

  • Best Bible on iPhone, with only one issue

    by rickyfrost

    I really wish the native accessibility features of iPhone (speak selection, and VoiceOver) worked in the app for when I don't have my reading glasses with me... Other than that, "two thumbs up!" Keep up the good work folks.
