SImply the best one out there - As a pastor, many people in my church have many different translations. I find it hard to follow with my favorite one sometime, so all I do is make 2 clicks and I have the one they are reading in front of me. I am also able to compare them as i prepare a sermon. I get only the ones I need and want. The other aids within this app are first rate as well! I have logos, but I find myself more and more going te Olive tree first before my overly expensive program that has all the bells and whistles I do not need or ever use. The inspirational books available are also outstanding in their selection and usefulness. I received a new touch pad for Christmas and my first concern was whether I could still have my Olive tree. I can and I installed it on that the very first thing. If anyone is considering this app; you will not be disappointed. Build your research library with the things you will need and use instead of getting a program that costs tons of money. That expensive program has way too many things you will pay for and never use. I use it all on this one!
SEARCH BUG! - After the latest update 5.4.2 the SEARCH BUG still exist! Try this yourself type 4 or more words (any words) on SEARCH bar you’ll see what happens next. The developer acknowledged that the bug exist since last year I reported it to them, couple updates later still exist!

Great, but lacks one basic function - This is my favorite Bible reading app (and I’ve tried a bunch). The only thing this app is missing is the function to compare a single Bible passage side by side to its equivalent in other Bible versions/translations (like e-Sword does). As of now, you can only compare two, one verse the main window the other on the split view window. I own a bunch of Bibles with Olive Tree and I would love to see how the same passage appears in all the different Bibles I own side by side, just that specific passage. I suggest you add a new section and call it Compare Passage or something of the sort, and just implement this verse comparison functionality for multiple Bible versions simultaneously. I don't think it will be too hard for the developers, as the verse location pointers are already there for all the Bibles they offer. Also, a button to swtich to dark mode switch the desktop app like you have on the mobile app would be really nice. If this app had those two basic functions, it would be perfect and I would give it 5 stars. All that said, I still love this app.
broken - purchased in 2013 with several addition study aids. It was worked well until last upgrade. I’m using current macOS. Now nothing will open or respond. including bible study support. Please fix...
Good but needs a refresh - 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.
On searching and note-taking - As a whole, I think the application is great. Of course, I think anyone can find something they’d tweak, so here are some of mine: Search function can be improved. I can search in specific fields predetermined by the application: Entire Bible, O.T., N.T., Revelation, Gospels, etc. Revelation and Psalms are the only specific books I can search, so I can’t search 1 Kings for something, for example, though I can limit my search to “History” and check the results in 1 Kings. I like that I can check any book in my library for the results, and I can see how many results in each source of my library. Notes. Notes have to be attatched to a specific place in the bible, a verse, a word, a passage. I would like the ability to create a note independent of a particular passage in the bible.
Zig - The app is intuitive and easy to learn to use. There was a time when the app would stall which was frustrating but seems to have been resolved of late. I mostly use the app for simple reading though and as such am not that in tune with all the other features it offers. I have used some of them but not on a regular basis. I particularly like the function of being able to highlight in diffferent collors and the ability to write notes. These work very well for me.
