Excellent Structure - It’s What You Make It! - Over the years I have tried numerous Bible Study Programs, lots of them. Some cost hundreds of dollars. But even the most expensive isn’t as versatile and buildable as this one. They provide you with the basic program and you can build it to be exactly what you want it to be. Yes, there are many in App purchases that can be made - but there is a wide assortment from which to choose. You can spend very little and have an excellent quick access study tool, or you can build it as you go into a complete research tool on a scholarly level. It is what you make it to be! I have a very thorough program set up now, that helps me greatly in my graduate and post-graduate studies. And I can always add more to it if I want to keep building it. It is a very valuable study tool where I can have a room full of research books without the physical shelves to have to file them on. It’s all on my computers. I can access it on my desktop, laptop, iPad, or even my iPhone from anywhere! It’s like having my study with me at all times. If you’ll give it a try, I’m sure you’ll see that it will enhance your Bible studies in an awesome way.
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!

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.
Nicholas p. - I have a Macbook, an iMac, 2 Ipads, and 2 iPhone 6s. For 7 years I used another app for my Bible study and for leading study groups. Over the 7 years, I developed extensive notes all throughout the Old and New Testaments. This other app linked all my hardware together, until one day, when I updated my phones, the app would no longer work with either phone. Next it stopped working in my newer iPad. So, all I had left working was the two computers and the older iPad. Now I was worried that when I updated the rest of my equipment, I would loose 7 years of notes. By the way, the other app did not give the ability to print my notes. Olive Tree came to the rescue. I downloaded Olive Tree into all my devices and I am back up and running, except Olive Tree is so much better. So many more resources, study aids, maps, Bible versions and cross references. Olive Tree makes my presentations so much easier. Plus I am learning as I put them together, because of all the helps. Olive Tree Bible app is truly easy to use and has so many resources it’s fun also. A great bible app. Head and shoulders over all the rest.
Awesome, takes a bit to learn - I think is app is awesome. It does take a bit to learn how to get everything to work together but ounce you get a grasp of it it will really be helpfull. I gave it a five because of everything that went into this app. A few things that i dislike but are not performance related necessarly, Its very syncable but its all a manual thing that you do. I think that with everything set up in IOS and how its set up that it should be automatic. Also i think the bibles are a little over priced. All in all this is one of the best. I use this app daily, but a couple things that i would like to see implemented. I would love for the notes to editable.(I would like to be able to simply underline and/or make bold some of text) Also bullet points would be awesome. This app is one of the best! hands down! The things i mention i just feel would make it that much better.
Update: Love this app - Previously I had written that the program continued to lock up on occasion when attempting to do text search. Very frustrating. Apart from that I appreciate how the tools are so accessible. At times I would like another window temporary note taking. Some time has passed and now I can say that with the update(s) this program runs as expected. What more can one ask? Great App.
Absolutely transformed my Bible study habits. - This is a product that so vastly enhances my Bible study that the part that was a tedious chore is now an exciting journey. I love, love, love it. It’s so quick to change translations, commentaries and look up original meanings of specific words that I’m more motivate to study verses just read the scriptures. This is from a layman perspective. God Bless you in your journey and KUDOS and Blessings to the coolaborative efforts of the authors. DH Adam Cleveland, OH
