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.

  • Easy to read without technical issues

    By Angelica Arellano
    I really like this app. I can read my daily scriptures and once I’m done it shows me that I “completely”; tracking my reading to show where I left off. Really like it. Highly suggest this app. Oh, there’s other good subjects and sections herein. Love this app!!!
  • Used to be great...

    By highgrown
    1. TOOLBAR COVERS TEXT Oh guys...let’s talk about this “toolbar” covering the text. This has to be one of the worst and most intrusive UI ideas yet. The reason I know it’s bad and not just me is because “toolbar covering text” is the first default options when contacting support so you can try and rationalize why it exists. Is this “feature” more for you...or your users? I’ve never used it, never will, and feel like it’s a heel in what was once a great bible-reading experience. If you’re so adamant to not listen to users enough to remove it, at least for the love of Moses, allow a preference in settings to hide it. 2. TOUCH GUIDELINES Secondly, let’s talk about how danged close together verse, reference, and notes elements are, and how completely unusable this is for your users. There’s a reason Apple had to release a guidelines standard about how close items should be together for touch-friendliness. I have probably spent nearly five minutes trying to read a note I made for a verse, only to continue to get unwanted cross-referenced verses instead...and I’m on a 12” iPad Pro with like 20pt font! I have a strong feeling there’s a global CSS style for each of these elements. How about applying even a little padding/margin to these for user-friendliness? 3. CHAPTER-SWIPE In the past, before iOS updates and my new iPad Pro, I was always able to use the “two-finger swipe to go to next/previous chapters seamlessly. This feature doesn’t work for manna any longer. I’ll do the two-finger swipe, and you never know if you’re going to go forward, or just end up in some random place. ————————— Thanks for listening to my rant and desperate plea for a better UI. I’m sure I’m not alone (again esp. for item 1 since it’s a default explanation when contacting you). This has historically been my favorite bible app, but with these chief complaints of mine going unfixed/addressed for quite some time, I’ll be completely honest, all it will take is for something better to come around for me to defect. I hope you’ll listen to my feedback, and consider implementing fixes for these in the immediate future. Thanks again for the app, it’s been amazing for my studies, but I’m a bit disenchanted at present, overall. Peace be unto you.
  • Great app

    By Val your pal
    I love this app. I can read from several different items in my library and ribbon mark each one. I especially like how I can read from one device and mark my page and then later pick up from the same place on my other device. This app is perfect for Bible Reading, but it is also great for sermon prep, Bible study prep, and special holiday readings. The comprehensive app allows me to download as many resources as I need and I can use this app on all my devices because it syncs to the cloud. I can work on a sermon in a helicopter over the mountains of Afghanistan or have a quiet time in my backyard. I love the free resources and can purchase any other helps I need. Love this app! And the customer service is quick, responsive, and friendly. Love it!!
  • Usually works fine but

    By Primayana
    Update crashes immediately on my iPhone X!
  • Doesn’t work anymore

    By mombear3b
    I used to love this app. It quit working a few months ago. When I open, it just “loads” with a blank screen. Same thing on my husband’s phone. Would give 5 stars if it worked again!
  • Cannot get past the loading screen.

    By Mothy5000
    Cannot get past the loading screen. Spinner spins perpetually regardless of updating and uninstalling and reinstalling
  • The future of bible study

    By ecrispen1223
    While I still love the feel, and readability of my good old fashioned paper bible, I am beginning to recognize the value of having so many resources at my fingertips. This is the future of bible study. I can read my NIV bible and have several different options for reference tracking with me at the bottom of the screen. Additionally, taking notes and highlighting is so much easier. Cross-referencing my notes is a breeze. This app is a must for any serious bible study. Of course, you have to purchase many of the versions, but there are some free ones as well. Just remember, someone had to put a lot of time and effort into writing and researching some of the best resources in here. Their time is worth your money (which isn’t really that much). Great app! Thank you.

    Great app with a lot of resources. They are always working on improving it. It could be less buggy, but overall it is a great option
