All My Data just Disappeared I opened the app one day and all my notes and highlights were just gone (again)! I tried to sync it back but it never came back! It shows that the account syncs every week but takes forever and I never know if it actually completes syncing before i turn my device off. I'm almost done with Olive Tree, this is the third time i synced and my data doesn't doesnt recover... PLEASE FIX OR IM DONE!

Tiny Dorothy L Williams

The Bible study All you do is put whatever scripture in and it pops right up the only thing I don't like is that there is no sound to read it for you.

Melissa Ferrara

Awesome! It's a searchable Bible, you can look up verses & copy text, & it's free! What's not to love? I'm sure it has a lot more great features I haven't even discovered yet.

Scott Henry

Bible Study app I will read this one hopefully every day. I did expect some explanation of verses but there's nothing I found to help understand passages.

Garrett Mitchener

Great reader I use it regularly. Can be a bit slow sometimes and the interface could use some tweaks. But it's a great tool for reading lots of different versions of the Bible, looking at footnotes and commentaries, and making your own notes.

Joey Snipes

My go-to Bible App! I recently switched from iPhone and as so relieved to find this app on Google Play! Is customizations coming to this version? Can't find them here and I loved that feature on iOS.

debbie paxton

Bible Study I love the Bible Study app! It makes bible reference so much easier than using my hardback bible. Don't get me wrong. Nothing can replace my bible, but this app makes referencing verses in the bible very quick and easy.

Pavitra Krupakaran

Twin cities ;-) Uve 2 versions togthr on 2 windows n u cn customize it da way u want to mke t mre intrestn to read + alot f study material n help! Jus wish t cud b a lil faster :)

Joseph Chandler

Great APP! The only thing preventing me from giving a full 5 stars is that I cannot just select a portion of a verse to highlight or undreline, and I have to give it a note. Sometimes I just want to highlight or underline a word or phrase, and the color of the highlight or color communicates all I need to know. Add this vertisility, and it is a define 5.

steve cook

Best free Bible I have used the Olive Tree Bible app in every device I possibly could. My only regret is that is not available for my Windows phone.

Shawn Bennett

Tried, True, and Proven! I have used this program since my Pocket PC days (way back!) This program just gets better and better, and allows seamless use on your varied devices. It's a mobile Bible study library!

Matthew Burkhart

Feature packed but falling behind I've been using the olive tree reader for the last 5 years on 5 different devices and 2 platforms. The features are impressive, but the performance has never been stellar and the UI hasn't been updated since the Android 2.x days. Going into Lollipop, its starting to look unbelievably dated, so if you aren't going to use the more advanced features look elsewhere for a bible app.

Treva Young

Only 2 Bible Versions This app would be better if it offered more than TWO versions of the bible! That is a MAJOR fail for me. Sorry...??

Randy Grace

Can't Change Storage Directory Every time I use settings to change the storage directory, it says it seems ok, but then starts crashing 100% of the time after the directory is changed. Thus I can't store my library on the SD card, and don't have enough memory to fully use the program.


I'd be lost without my Bible Study App! I could not recommend this app enough. I have downloaded the Fire Bible study app which runs along side my bible giving me superb explanations and links to every book and verse in both new and old testaments where other examples are listed. Absolutely a must!

Arnella Myers

A blessed pleasure to use Enjoy the reading plans and free devotions. Especially love that my notes are stored and regularly backed up so it's available even if I switched my device.

Vern Vanderkleed

Scrolling is really jumpy. Scrolling is not smooth, but jumps around really erratically. They told me 6 months ago that this would be handled in the next update. It has now been 1 year since the last update. Maybe they have abandoned Android.

Princess gloria Ebrakeme

olive tree bible study app It's simply amazing,i can't stand not having this app on my tablet and it's the only bible study app i know for now that has provision for note taking. I enjoy using it. God's blessings.

Lora Conner

Love my Bible app, love the split screen, so if I don't understand a word, I don't have to go to an entirely different screen. Or even looking up a verse but not know where it is, it looks it up for you...only thing I would like to see added is that it could read for you... God bless!!!

David Fonseca

After reading during my bible study and touching the Done icon, it doesn't remember all the time where to start your reading the following day, so you think you're on the right path and you end up skipping chapters and verses. I have the same Study Bible on my i phone and it works great, the only difference is that the iPhone is smaller than my android tablet. I sure wish that it would get corrected, its such a great study.

Phillip W. Dillon

Impressive App Lots of useful study tools to use online or off, still has a few bugs that cause it to shut down without warning. Still the best app I've found for Android.

Charm B

Beautiful app, the only disappointing aspect is the highlighting feature which needs to be simpler like the ios version. Love love love

jillian rae rodriguez

Changed my perspective on life Things aint always how u want them to b but thats just the point in tact u r not suposed to want Times come n go just as people n matirial things do Live life to its fullest n when ur ready things will change for the better One just has to take it one day at a time Not dwell in the past n most defanantly not freak out about the future

idara akpan

Bug fixes I like the fact that the app is free but sometimes, it closes unexpectedly and it freezes alittle. I think it needs some serious bug fixes. Also, whenever I use my notes, it closes up and I have even needed to wit the note for times before it could be saved. However, it is a good bible study apps with bible reading plans that re VERY useful.

Steve Lougheed

Very good Bible reader At times it could stand to be more intuitive, hence 4 stars. Sometimes the contrast on buttons like tag selectors is hard to see in some light conditions.

Edgar Dapiton

Portable Library that can still improve I've used this for at least 2 years now as an alternative to my previous e-bible and I find it "OK" but not comparable to the "Biblelink" (in Palm OS): too slow, crashes, integration with other materials can be problematic, & overall presentation as a reading tool can still improve - a lot. Still, I find no other e-bible in the market that offers the same, thus, I am going to use it until an android version of the "Biblelink" arrives or a "better" version of the same comes along. Meanwhile, I am liking this everyday I use it: have my notes integrated into the verses, I can choose different reading plans, download a library, etc... at this point, this is the "only" alternative to lugging along my physical library. Keep improving. To God be the Glory! .e.

Dustin Cullum

Most versions are expensive, but otherwise great. The operation of the app is great and so is the fact that it doesn't require a WiFi connection. On the downside, most of the versions of the bible are as expensive (or more expensive) as buying an actual bible. If there were more free, or less costly bibles to add to the app I'd give it 5 stars.

Dan Turner

Much better than Kindle I see all of these terrible reviews with Kindle versions of bibles. This is the ideal, especially for navigation. Harper has become a trusted name in biblical literature, and when I saw they had a bible app, I assumed the best. All of the better translations are available, even the REB which is one of my personal favorites but is hard to find in the US. The biggest plus is probably the availability of the Harper Study notes which have been my favorite since taking Introduction to NT in college.


Brilliant Just what I as a Sunday school organiser needed. It has a great offline search an read functionality that is not usual great for us with no WiFi. God bless you.

Michael Machumi

Excellent Best Bible app on the market for me. I use this app on s4, on my tablet and on my computer and what a joy it brings me. Easy to use and search is very good all this doesn't need to be online. Dual window is cool. Thanks guys.

Louise Larsen

Great App!! This is a great app I've been using it for years now 1-15-15 lately it changes settings randomly back to default and requires I login to use purchased version of the bible cross platform on 2 different devices - disappointed 3-2-15 issue resolved added to ignore list for cleaning app thanks olive tree for A+service!

Robert Woodard

Bible Study App Like the ease of looking up scriptures, any verse, any book, in just seconds. Also enjoy the numerous font sizes available for these old tired eyes.

Vincent Valentine Otimong

Apostolic Revelations Very handy and direct in revealing the TRUTH which has time and again reinvigorated my convictions by an ACTIVATION of FAITH within me. I am grateful for this Olive tree for its eternal benefits to my Life and the people in the domain of my upward Call

Keonna Williamson

Never Ending Spending I understand some in app purchases, but compared to others I've used its a bit over kill. Especially being that I already purchased the items I want & have them downloaded on my phone through Cadre Bible App (way more to offer) & for much much less than what's being charged here. To top it off, a lot of the items are offered for free through Cadre...This looked VERY promising after friend suggested, but just way too expensive after paying for each component needed for optimal use.

Rod Sissel

Requires login each time I open Recent update produces the following... Requires me to login and register books every time. Inconvenient to say the least. A note to tech support returned the kind of advice one typically gets from tech support: "Well, that shouldn't happen." I've used the app for over 10 years on multiple platforms. Windows is a fantastic experience, but I've had regular problems on various mobile devices. Sadly, they just can't seem to nail it. Would have gone with Logos if I had to do it over again.

Robert Beukema

I want to love this app, but in the end I hate it. I take tremendous amounts of notes, and I'm at a point where the program start to act weird due to the massive annotation database. This is the reason why I switched from the Logos Bible app (which offers far superior highlighting capabilities btw), and now I have the same problem. It's frustrating to find out after many hours.

प्रसाद भावे

The best.. Believe me or not, thus is the best study tool on the android. Neither requires net nor you have to download additional versions or commentary st the start up. It's ready to study with all stuff. I have downloaded more than 20 best Bible options after reading its details but after going through each,I found this as the best... A must have app for any believer.. Thanks to the developers. God bless..

Kofi Opoku

The app is not stable it keeps going off. And i loss all downloads every now and then. And there is no technical support. Otherwise, this app would have been a Perfect software for Bible Studies and for people who love to research into the Good Book. Keep it up but you need too introduce the Amplified version, audio and automatic scroll

Rebekah Shultz

My travel Bible!! Having this on my phone means I am NEVER without His word! I really wish it had an audio feature for like when I'm working or in the car and can't stop to read myself... But other than that I love it and all the reading plans to guide me!! Great app! Great book! Couldn't live without His word.

Stephen Miller

Well supported This app has alot going for it, but the speed and stability can sometimes be a problem. I have had very good support from this company.

Philip Norris

Invaluable resource Centre! If you are willing to put money into your bible study resources, OliveTree is unparalleled! And if you're not wiling to invest in your bible study, well, you're not that serious about it. It's not just for your mobile device, set-up your account online and you can carry your purchases and free downloads over to all your devices.

Алексей Смирнов

What I was looking for.

Sam Smith

I use to love this app told all my friends how good it was. Now it is trash. I would not recommend it to anyone.

rachel saunders

Good but... This is probably my favorite Bible app, but after the last update came through its a lot harder to navigate to different chapters and verses. Since I use it during church to counter a pastor who flips constantly through the Bible, it makes it easier to use a normal Bible and have to hunt and dig for pages then to try to navigate rapid fire through a confused app.

Dwight Shepherd

Good but I love this Bible but the recent update just screwed up my stuff. My login details don't work again so I can't access my bookmarks. Everything is just not as nice before the update.

Nigel Yoong

Used to be good Since the last update.. The app keeps crashing on my Nexus 7. Please fix.

Tim White

Great study app - Even better now! Latest update is a huge improvement -- all my iOS books are now available (interlinears and a few others were not before). Commenting and highlighting is finally by word now, not just per whole verse -- so my iOS markups carry cleanly over to Android. And general app stability is vastly improved -- far fewer crashes and much better store interface. As always-- Huge selection of resources and available on all your devices and computers. Great sync keeps your notes and highlights up to date across all your devices.

A Google User

Used to be the best This app used to be the best, the most cutting-edge Bible software. Unfortunately, it never had an android version that lived up to the ios, or even, Palm Os implementation. This new version feels faster, but doesn't work well and don't fix many of the issues I had In previous versions. It's sad since I really enjoyed this app and invested in many books for it...

Marcia Butler

Used to be good Since the recent updates this is difficut use and locks up. Also the menu bar at the top of the page disappears and I can't get it back. I used to love it but its just gotten hard to use on my galaxy s3.

Ricardo James

My Favourite Bible App Update: Have problem with hyperlinks now on S6 Edge since last update. Very difficult to open. Previous: Easy to use, Great features, wide range of study resources and cross platform with sync.

Barbara Long

Last update very problematic Please leave things alone that work. Before the update I would give 5 stars. Now it lags. Just doing basic tasks in it are more difficult. I have to tap on a number 4-5 times at least to create a note. Also, I can no longer copy my notes so I can put them in an email for example. Minor annoyance is the now double tap required to see or hide the menu. I really liked the old version better. I am with other raters, please let us return to the previous version. Nonetheless, it is still the best Bible app out there in terms of options. I just took away another star because now my bookmarks do not carry across versions. Please! Give me the version before this one again! Please! What are all the bookmarks that I never added? And when I click on them to see why they are there I receive a message saying annotated bookmarks queued for update? I would just like my bookmarks please.

Mary Long

Upgrade I put on my new table n my phone n the update doesn't work try unstalling n restalling still it doesn't work well any more. I have trouble seeing so the table works better but can't go from book 2 book any more please fix the bugs soon☆☆☆☆☆☆

A Google User

Ver6 - excellent This is a worthwhile upgrade.. Have been a users since palm days.. Excellent on my tablet.. Though keep dreaming about extra (3rd) split window.. Best Android version to date by far

David Willis

David Previous problems with this update, ESV with Strong's not working, have now been sorted and it seems to work well now, if a little slow at times. Thanks to folk at Olivetree.

Christine Garland

In premise a great idea but... This app crashes nearly every use and is mostly unusable. Via the "store" you can end up spending a lot for good research material only to be wasted on a failed spp. The sword project or simple bible apps work and are free. Disappointed!

Bernice Keet

Struggling On my s4 I struggle to move from one scripture to the next. When I press exit to go back to the main menu I can't, try and hit the option key, nothing happens.. How do I get back to the main menu (to search and go to the next verses I want to read).

A Google User

New update looks great, not ready for prime time Uodate: As well, you can no longer highlight for all Bible, only one at a time. And you cannot copy text from a note. Previous: New update looks great, not ready for prime time. The header UI is very non-Android compliant. If you want it to go away, you have to double-tap. If you want it to come back, you have to double-tap again. This is very confusing behavior and non-standard for Android. I've never seen another Android app do that.

A Google User

So sad Totally unbelievable. I can't open the app at all. This current upgrade is sad. I've been using Smartphone back in 2000, SmartPhone iPaq Pocket PC.

Brian Cathcart

Problems since last update I updated this June 27 and have not been happy with it. There is no "exit app" anymore (the android menu function does not work anymore), you have to keep pressing the back button. The problem is that if you start on ESV and switch to NKJV (for example), you will start back in ESV when you open the app later. I don't want to have to press back several times to leave the app. Only workaround is to force the app closed in Android. Also had to figure out the double tap for the top menu..not a good change.

James Hensley

App no longer opening As many others have reported, the app no longer opens after the last update. Unfortunately for me I did not know it would not open until I needed it to read from in my Sunday school class. Looks like it is back to my trusty large print KJV. I have gone back and attempted to use this app today. Still not functional and hangs at the most inopportune times. Will not be attempting it again.

Monday Katongo

Useful App Are you doing something about the problems brought about by the last update? The Bible can't open on my Galaxy Tablet 10.1.

Allan McKenzie

New version is different but no harder to use than the older. That said, it is a bit complicated for a small phone screen. Less is more.

Dion White

My favorite app but..... The Bibles are huge and this app is about 5GBs! I NEED SD Card support... Im rooted and can R/W on my sd card with no problem.

Jose Gamez

Not made for Android. Developers completely disregard Google's Android design guidelines, so regardless of how good the content may be the app is unintuitive and awkward to use. Why developers try to change the basics of Android app usage is beyond me. Even the back button doesn't work as it's supposed to work on Android.

Chris Reimer

Hangs & crashes After the last couple of updates, the app is slow, hangs on startup, and/or crashes. It's no longer usable. I am sad. Seriously, I can no longer access the bibles I bought. I want a refund.

A Google User

OliveTree Bible Reader Please fix soon was great. But latest update not working on my phone or Dell tablet.

Jay Fannin

Like new design but unstable... Since using the redesigned format for the last 3 days, it's a bit unstable, sometimes closing on its own. Also, it takes longer to bring up chosen library books, chapters and verses. I also downloaded this on my older Samsung Galaxy tab 2 and though it's nice to finally get an update available for that model, the app actually doesn't respond well at all when trying to choose scriptures to research, note or highlight. Hope future updates will fix these issues.

Carl Woody

Room for improvement Thank you for bringing back the SD card support. This is a robust app with thousands of titles available. I still experience some lag and occasional crashes when in the store.

timothy benzinger

Use to be a 5 star I like the new lay out but It doesn't merge all the olive tree apps like it use to so I have to run 4 different apps for cross referencing between translations

Calvin Dunn

Missing resources Some of my resources, like strong numbers ESV Bible are missing and are not in my library. Menus freeze up or are unavailable on occasion. New typeset is very clear as well as the new highlights. Entire passages disappear and it skips to the next chapter without warning. I suspect that this is a good beta version but clearly needs a lot more work and refinement. A pastor would not be able to depend upon this program while preaching a sermon. Hope they are working on a major update because of the program has great potential.

Abisai Verdin

New Update this new Update really sucks→ but you know what sucks even more → I Spent lots of time & money on this app → Now I Can't even read or reference My notes → It Keeps crashing → Im going back to reading my leather back bible.

A Google User

New version crashes my phone OliveTree is a wonder app and I love it, but not this release. The app won't even start. I get Force Close errors. I have followed all of your directions and it will not run on my phone. I have to stay with the previous version.

Robin Townshend

The best portable bible app Brilliant app on smartphone and tablet. Latest additions make it everything one could want in this genre.

Vusi Tshabalala

? The app was the best i ever had, now: I can't even use it. #AppGoneComplicated for no reason.

Roger Harrison

This used to be a good bible app until the last update. What a pity to ruin a great study tool. I will just have to look elsewhere.

kirsty paddon

Won't work App won't open constantly says it's stopped. Used to be favourite bible study app

Clint Robinstein

So happy to have an updated version I just moved from an old iPhone to Android and I was sad that the this app was still so far behind the iOS version, but after the update today I feel much better. There are still a lot of features I miss (like gestures) but I understand that stuff takes time. Good work, great app.

Kelvin Wright

What's wrong? This was a great app and I've used it for years on a variety of devices. But since the last revision it crashes every time I open it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Trish Thomas

I am so disappointed with the updated version of this app. I paid 14.00 for this and have loved it till this update. I no longer have the option to change the colors. Why would you mess such a great bible up this way.

Micky Hitchcock

6.0 The 6.0 update absolutely ruined the usability of the app. This was by far the best bible reading app on the market, but I cannot even use it now because of the bugs and the counterintuitive design. This is very disappointing. If seems that too often, change is sought just for the sake of change. I miss my app!

Paul Hartley

Disappointed Doesn't work like it used to. I have the worst time trying to return to search menu. Interface looks nice but the usability is terrible.

Tracie Jordan

used to love this app but now won't open on lg g3 since latest update

'Leke Ekundayo

Still Crash My books did not sync. I cant access my books even after the upgrade to 6.0. I have enjoyed this app for some times but over 6 months now the apps continue to crash any I have switched to Mysword Bible though it does not have all the features I love in this one

Nii Lantey G Cruickshank

Outstanding Bible Study App Thank you very much for the prompt response in helping me resolve the issue I had in opening on my Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.0 after the update. Love it more.

Tyler Kester

Fantastic app Fantastic app. KJV is free with basic app. Great interface. Lots of options within app to personalize it. And great customer service. Only gripe I have is the cost of the additional study resources. Too costly.

Max Stamper

Features: Great. Function: Poor This is the 3rd edit of this review. In a nutshell, the features of the app are fantastic. However, it is so SLOW that it is impractical to use. It takes over a minute to load. Takes several seconds to go from one scripture to another. Other than that I really like the features of this app (split screen, note taking feature etc.). I will gladly give a five star rating when the functionality issues are resolved.

A Google User

Newest version super slow By the time this app opens our study is over. It's really sad that is takes this long to open. I invested a lot of money in books on Olivetree and with this latest version it takes less time to reboot my computer then starting this app. Update: I timed the loading it takes 1m:28s to load.... Update2: moved Bible files to internal storage apparently this version has issues reading the files from the SD card. App now loads in 15seconds. It used to work fine on the SD card

Larry Smith

Don't waste your time and money Every time ever they "update" it they break it. With all the money I have invested in books through this app, I should love it. Bought 20 + books and bibles. Should have bought hard copies. Least they would not crash and be unusable every few weeks...

Deborah Ann Dacuno

Can't close App is awesome but I have to press the home button on my mobile to exit. Back key goes to previous Bible passages I've read. Is there a setting for this?

Ss Hh.

OliveTree Bible Study App. Awesome app! Read several Bible versions, countless books for Bible study, read Christian books, study maps, take notes. Available OFFLINE! Wonderful app. support offered! Great for laymen, pastors and missionaries.

Neil Stackhouse

Crashes or will not open. I had to Uninstaller and reinstall. Also redownload all books. The app still crashes. I have to restart the phone to reopen the app.

James Taylor

Very resourceful I can use this Bible study cell phone my tablet anywhere anytime this Bible study is the best thing that ever happened 2 cell phone

Rosa Rupp

Usable after reinstall. Unfortunately I had to uninstall then reinstall even after the update today. I was really hoping to avoid that because it takes a while to download all books. Love the app just wish these bugs would stop and I wouldn't have to continue reinstalling it.

Ben Coleman

The latest version (6.2.1) no longer runs on my Samsung Galaxy Core Prime. It hangs in the initial splash screen.


Perfect As I can always have this study tool on the go, no more excuses for procrastination

Damon Bowles

Best one yet Has everything I need and right where I need it.

Twumasi Stephen

Very powerful app, thanks to the developers. God bless you

Mary Jo Dailey

Great App I'm in seminary, and this is a great resource. It's not as user friendly as I'd like, but that's only a small annoyance.

Tony Tiangco

Its been great It's very usefull every day Bible apps . Thanks be to God and more Power !!!

maxwell maina

Super helpful Guys I really appreciate your help and would like to get my login issue fixed... I can't access the dictionaries because I can't log in.

Andre John Cruz

Greatly improved since I last used it a year ago

Alec Watungwa

The best This app is the best Bible app. I would give 5 star if next update have an exit option.

Franklin Tseng

Excellent Bible app Probably the best app for bible reading and study. Easy to use and constantly upgraded.

Babatunde Oshinubi

God's Word. This is a strong argument for paid apps. No ads. Thanks.

Greg Haynes

Best mobile study app available Just my opinion, but this app is a better mobile option than Logos. Not bashing Logos. They have a great application for PCs. But for mobile devices Olive tree has them best.

wilson mokiti

The best ever next to pc study bible,that you are able to personalize it to suite your requirements in terms of B/versions, commentary, concordance, and that it always at my finger tips. Great App.

Roy Fagan

Olive Tree study Bible This is an awesome application. It's hard to imagine that any improvement could be made upon on this application. It is a delight to use and I am sure a work that the Lord greatly appreciates.

Ralph Squitieri

Greatly improved since last update!

A Google User

Back On Top So far God's word (via OT) has not been clearer or crash free!

Bobby Moses

Excellent Bible Study Application Use it daily for Bible study, Quiet time, Family Devotion, Teaching, Preaching, and preparing sermons. The resources available are excellent. Good job and God bless you all.

Larry Kenagy

Awesome! Great app! I've had this app since the IPAQ days. Still the best!

Vern Vanderkleed

Have used since my palm pilot I've tried other apps, buy keep going back.

Paul Bodin

Best Bible app I've found for serious students. Unfortunately the latest update makes the app freeze on my LG G4 if I move the data to the SD card. Please fix!

John Wells

Use it everyday and love it!

LesnChristine Parker

The Good Book app Great app, easy to use and with all the features you need.

This so far is my best choice for mobile app for the bible This option of night mode makes is more convenient for me to read at night now. Arrived at the right time since I am already having issues with my eyes for spending much time using my tab and phone at night in the dark.

Dyre Logan

I love this Bible app It still crashes when I highlight on a Note 4, even after several updates. Also, they REALLY need to work on battery life for this app. I started reading and read for about 30 minutes and my battery went from 100% to 86%. Even Facebook after 30 minutes doesn't drain this fast! I've even turned off auto sync. I don't know why this is draining my battery so quickly when all I'm doing is just reading, tapping every once in a while to scroll or go to another book. Please address this.

Bob Crow

I've been using Olive Tree since the days of Palm Pilots. Bibles are a little expensive, but the app makes it worth it. If you think everything should be free, move along.

Michael Berndt

Sluggish The newest update takes half of forever on the splash screen. Samsung Tab4 took about 16 seconds to get out of the new green splash page. Moto MAXX cell phone did it in 1/4 of the time. Other than that, I still like the app. I've been a steady customer for a few years now and it's a great Bible program.

Charles II Burrows

Lacks Consistency Cross Platform The app is a pretty good app with lots of resources available but one major downfall of the app is that if you have multiple devices from different companies all your purchases may not be available on both devices. If you purchase a book on Android they're is a chance that you won't be able to see it on your Apple products.

Ricardo Del Valle

This is a great Bible app! It has many great features. These include being cross-platform, syncing, individual word highlighting, hyperlinked verses anywhere, split-screen, and in-depth word lookup (with the purchase of resources that sometimes are free). Overall, it is a very user friendly, organized, and well developed personal Bible app!

Was good - now too slow to be usable Now takes some 40 seconds to start on my Galaxy S5. Unbelievable! Update - as no in-app reporting - I couldn't be faffing around gathering diagnostic info and transposing it. Uninstalled and reinstalled, then downloaded my library again. Now about 5 secs to load from cold start.

A Google User

Great Bible App! Great app. I use this as my primary tool for sermon prep and love having the different translations within the same tool. I use the notes part extensively and like its functionality. The phone version opens up scripture references inside the notes shifting the notes aside, where the tablet simply opens up a window over top allowing to return quickly to the notes. I like that way much better. Also the new version takes an eternity to open compared to the previous version.

Ezekiel Kohen

Note 5 and S6 immediate crash Please bug-fix the immediate crash after launch of app in Note 5 and S6! Thanks! Crash NEVER got fixed! Sync problem. So sad that I used to give your deserved 4+ stars.


A shadow This app sold out when HarperCollins took over. It's functional, but limited compared to what it used to offer bible readers.

Emaido Essien

Won't open after i updated After updating to the present version, it not opening again, keeps showing this message " file migration error" . and it's always too slow before now What wrong...please help me fix this...I loved the study here

Eric Huerta

Good study resources, but it ts too slow to load. I have been using this Bible software for more than five years, it is great, it has a variety of resources, but it tends to load the books very slowly, that limits its use in Church.


The app is fair. I still consider this app one of the best bible apps in the market. However, it has too many bugs to be addressed. One the annoys me the most is the rapture in the layout when I'm using two columns. Depending on the move I make, a page moves sideways and creates a gap between the two columns, very annoying. Another one is the delay on loading the new translation when I switch from one to another. Anyway, it's a good app, but still some work.

Richard Asper

Best Bible study app for most students The resource guide is tremendous. The app is available for most platforms and notes and highlights sync between platforms. Tons of resources available. This is the best, easiest to use, and most economical product I have ever used.

Jeff H

Cross platform Bible Study This Bible reading/study app is cross platform and you can (if you register your account on each device) read purchased books/Bibles on several platforms. You can take notes, make highlights, etc. which are also synced across platforms. You can also push your notes to Evernote should you wish to do so. I did use pocketbible for a while until something happened to my windows app and could no longer use it cross platform. If you catch some sales, the books are very reasonably priced. Also, I was able to ArcWeld an android apk and use the app on my chromebook - for those interested - so I can pull up my notes on my android phone, tablet, chromebook, and windows desktop. I would give it five stars but the android and windows 8 app does crash sometimes while swiping through books.

Lenny Ng

Slow startup The app is supposed to support storage in the external SD card. However, storing the bible libraries there means it takes minutes to start up and change verses. Even ver6 is not fixing the problem

Teresa Yazel

Great app I use this all the time and have bought several things on this app. However, after the last update it takes so long to open that it times out. Please fix it. Five stars when that happens.

Stephen Claxton

Good Scrolling great, readability great, start-up is slow, Windows/panels don't always work easily and UI feels a little old and clunky

Shaun Wallace

Excellent for study I love the split screen and study bible with linked references, Strong notes and split screen. Thanks for the free ESV with Strong notes you gave away in your one special. I use it for all my bible studies and during service. The links follow well and I love how clicking back takes me to where I last was. So much easier to follow when the preacher moves around the Bible quite quickly.

Neil McEachin

Great program Great program! Very powerful study tool, easily one of the best paid bible software platforms available. I especially love the cross platform capability. The new features are great also, everything I liked before and some nice improvements.

James Drury

Great App! I have used Olive Tree since the days of the Palm Pilot. I have to admit, I wasn't convinced that the new publishers would continue the quality I had expected. And for the last few versions I was concerned I would have to switch to a different app. I am happy - and relieved - to say I will not be switching! The latest update (2016-Feb) has fixed several annoying issues and really improved the initial start time. Olive Tree Bible+ works better now than it has for quite a while. Bible+ offers multiple Bible versions for free or for purchase along with dictionaries, commentaries, and other publications. Create an account and sync across multiple devices or just for backup purposes. Pick from several daily reading plans and keep track of your progress. In-App notifications are unobtrusive and only show as a little number at the top. Ignore them if you want but they do sometimes contain free stuff along with the items on sale. Other features include the ability to highlight, bookmark, or pin notes to verses to remind yourself of some thought while reading. Read in a single window or split the screen for either a second version or a reference guide.

B.J. So

Good, not great I use this app mainly because my hardcopy Study Bible had a free code for the OliveTree version. The app has a decent interface and functionality, but it feels a little clunky. The highlighting on verses looks particularly bad (compared to other Bible apps), and the icons aren't always intuitive. On the plus side, the ability to open multiple passages / resources with the popup option is really helpful and unique to OliveTree.

Havindra Gunawardena

Careful with updates. The current version is great and has sorted out all the issues from the last update. Lost my notes and wouldn't sync last time around. But all that's sorted out. Pls be careful with future updates. Need to be able to backup notes to another 3rd party tool to be safe. Hence unable to give 5 stars. But all in all as of now... Great tool and thank you !

Gregory Heyward II

Perfect Prior to this app I was thinking of switching to an iPad just because I wanted a capable Bible app, this stopped me from going to the walled garden. So many features, its worth every penny and then some. 25FEB: Kyle M of Olive Tree helped me with a sync issue, customer support was awesome. Absolutely love this app.

Mark Pearse

Continues to be great 17+ years on I have used olivetree since late 90's. It has continued to improve and great that I feel secure that I can buy resources that will be supported into the future. Current android app is a little slow on initial startup but that will get sorted I think. Have built up a good collection esp thru sales over the years. Great to have a desktop option for more serious study and preparation; but also good to be able to continue it on when on the go and have spare time or to jot down a note or dig deeper when out.

Ungaree M.

The best most useful application you could possibly have on your device read your Bible daily. This app has a library second to none. It takes and maintain your notes. The book & Bibles you can add to this app make or gives you the tool to research any topic. It's so much fun to be able to pop into any version of text while you are in service or Sunday school. ********** This app is priceless. ********** however the MacBook version is very bad, locks ip and resets all the time.

Douglas McAlexander

Great Bible Reader I've been using this Bible reader for years. It has great content. I think it is lacking an easy way to take sermon notes but other than that it is perfect. Update 2/20/2016: My Android just updated to Bible+ 6.2.1 and it takes a very long time to open. Once open everything loads very slowly. It is so slow I think I'm going to have to uninstall and switch to another Bible app. Also, in the previous update we lost the Exit option. Pressing back, takes you to previous verses, not exit.

Steve Krenek

Was great The last upgrade took this from a 5 star to a 3 for me. I've loved this app for years. The latest version borders on unusable now though. It takes close to two minutes to start up, and once I open a bible takes over a minute to get to the text. Stop improving what worked fine. Bring back what worked well before and this goes back to 5 stars for me.

Bob Harrison

Amazing app with occasional crashing Great! app in concept, but crashes occasionally -- especially when navigating around the resource guide. Everything else in the app works pretty well. It is becoming my surefire bible for reading, study, church, everything.

Louis A. Burgess

Greatly Appreciated Resource The Bible Study application is an outstanding exegetical resource. I have been utilizing Olive Tree since 2004 and it has remained my primary means of scriptural exposition. The original languages library has enabled me to fulfill the pastoral imperative to take heed to myself and "the Doctrine." For this, I am truly grateful! Lately I'm having problems with the functionality on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Please help.

A Google User

Faster loading on the most recent devices Loading is faster on recent devices with Android version 6.0.1, but about the same as before with older devices with Android version 4.4.2, which are not that old. Notifications appear to be fixed.

EK Lee

Still appreciated for its wide range of bible study tools It used to be a leaner tool with faster response time. Perhaps because I've added numerous tools, it has slowed down. However also because of the tools, my bible study experience is enhanced with more depth and I can access numerous resources offline to enrich my word or contextual studies. Furthermore, it works well across iOS, Android and Microsoft platforms. Still my recommended bible study app.

Linda Bowman

Keeps crashing Keeps crashing every time I select text to highlight or share. Over and over again. I generally like the app because I do not have to be online to read it. I hope this latest update fixes that.

Alan Smith

Full featured but slow. UPDATE : running kit kat, speed is much more pleasant. 5 stars now.

Kenneth Hoffman

Slow down Latest version fixed some bugs I never saw but is M U C H slower loading. Just getting started needs lots of CPU and memory.

cp thomas

Problem with new update After the recent update I lost all my Olivetree books from mobile (Android 4.4.2). I tried downloading some, but to my surprise they are not showing up in library. Please correct this problem. Otherwise all my purchased books will be lost.

Richard A Imgrund

Great reference source I like having a few translations available, plus the Hebrew and the Greek. The Douay-Reims has some misspellings as a result of the scanning process. It's a little cumbersome switching between translations, but the convenience and versatility make this a fine acquisition.

Jim Palmer

Daily use I use this app every day for the last 3 years. It has been a wonderful spiritual tool. The app works flawlessly. I have enjoyed the updates over the years. It has quickly become the best bible app I have ever seen. I love opening the commentary and reading it side by side with God's word.

Tina Barry

Developers worked to solve the issue of my in app purchases. When my purchases failed to load the developers worked until it was fixed. I will continue to put up with minor bugs until they are resolved.

Pury Jaquez

Thanks for the NIV! NIV is my favorite translation and one of the reasons why I didn't use the app as often is because I would have to pay extra for it. Why would I when other apps have for free? Now is my favorite bible study app.

Dan Wright

Getting better with time. This app has begun my go to bible app for years. The ease of use and linking multiple texts to reference, or better yet another translation, is very helpful. Multiple copies of the bible in one place makes it quite valuable when studying the Word. Thanks!

Sharon Fleming

Great Customer Service The app had me some problems on my tablet, but I wrote to Olive Tree and received a reply the next day with helpful instructions. I love using this app for Bible study on my tablet, computer, and phone. Great helps, especially Constable's commentary!

Julie Lehl

Bible study Easy to use. Makes studying effective and efficient. Good for extensive research/study or quick references into the Word. Highly recommended!

Cha C

Great app. Sometimes it stops suddenly and is slow in responding but great Bible study tool overall!

Robert Dewille

Its an ok app. And by that I mean it is just OK. I bought a nice new tablet, put the app on it. It is a bit slow to load. I took off a star for that. Another thing is it does not post to facebook or twitter right. I highlight a verse, click share, choose either facebook or twitter and the post comes up blank. Weird. I took off a star for that. Another thing I do not like, is on this app you have to PAY for the NLT bible when the esv, niv, kjv and nkjv are FREE! Makes no sense. The positive thing is I purchased the New Spirit Filled Life Bible Notes and they integrate seamlessly with any bible translation. This has made the bible literally come alive for me. Olive Tree has a GOOD thing going here, if they can just work out the kinks!

macdonald mapungwana

No bible was ever close to this app Best thing ever to happen to me, reading one bible with 4 different versions gives a whole new meaning to understanding...

Ian Hastie

Excellent Good app. Easy to learn and fairly intuitive interface. Makes study, even chasing up cross references, easy.

Nancy Lawton

Use Regularly I use this on a regular basis for church and Seminary classes. I enjoy being able to read 2 Bible versions at once. Also the additional resources. Currently using "Grudem's Systematic Theology" in my class. Only giving 4 stars because it isn't as user friendly on my Surface and does't offer as many free resources such as Grudem's.

Sam Onyuchi

Great Excellent App. Works perfectly well, loads very fast, sweet and easy to use, it makes my note taking easy and i access them with ease. I have it in my iPad and my Android phone... Love it

Daniel Prakash

Very slow startup since previous update Hi Thanks for this great app, I'm using for last 4 years. .....but since the last update I see performance issue....the app starts loading very slow...almost takes a minute or 2 ....would be great if this issue could be sorted out.

A Google User

Amazing. So much better on s7 Hated using on my galaxy nexus, and pretty bad on my s5. Got my s7 and everything is so so so so amazing. No crashing, super fast. Absolutely love it. Took about 4 years of use to say that. Couldn't be more happy. Still wish I could pop out to a main window any resources from inside the resources guide. Also wish I could change the night colors, verse color bad. Oh and that Jesus words weren't Burgundy when reading a Strong's Bible. Wish they were all the same color red! Or an option that works to do that.

Joseph Armstrong

Great Study Bible too! I love the olive tree study bible its a great app ti use anywhere at anytime, it has great study bibles and the good thing about it you can organized the books the way you want them, i had preach using this app its will good, the only thing that i wish for that the notepad could be like the note pad on the ipad olive tree app, that woukd be great. Oh and if you have a problem with the app customer service is great they help you until the issue is solve. I love this app and i recommend it to everyone whos looking for a great study bible app, I also wish that it had a minister's manuals that could be purchase, but thats why i also have logos app to make up for the other dont have together they make a good bible study too. Keep up the good work, Oh one more thing i have this app on all my devices even though my ipad is. 1th generation is outdate i still use it on that, but i have it on my phone and kindle fire, again its a great app highly recommend it for bishops, pastors, elders, preachers, teachers, and anyone who want to grow deeper into the word of the Lord

Moses Mine

Awesome combinations This has helped me so much in my bible studies, easy access to find and search for scriptures. I love it so much and I'm loving it. Can't stop loving you. Simply the best.

Bill MacCollum

Wonderful but I have enjoyed the Bible App. I love the ability to take notes and no matter what device I am on they are there. Like others some the latest update it does take a while to load. I also had an issue about wanting to load a new free Bible and the whole program hung up. After uninstalling and reinstalling everything works again

Netagene Kirkpatrick

Super -- then bad -- now GREAT! I wrote the following a year or 2 ago: "I used OTB for years including on an old PDA - and it was my go-to Bible on my smart phone. Edited: then did NOT like the version. Deleted it." Edited just now: a friend recently said it's better once again so I loaded it again today -- it's a BIG file -- and so far, so good, GREAT! And once loaded, can use off line!

Anthony Allen

Excellent Great tool to have when researching a verse or when you are seeking a fresh annointing for The Lord. Would give 5 stars if there was an audio function that read the Scriptures for listening.

Selvan Star Sadanand

Thy Words Are A Lamp To My Feet Jesus is Lord <3.. I am started and my blessings too started pouring in with knowledge and wisdom... Glory Be To God..

Ng Liang Wei

Good app but recently clunky Use it a lot. But having trouble starting since the update. Refuses to open. Had to uninstall and reinstall. Still occurs off and on. Very good app when it works.

Willmour Daniel

Awesome Top shelf app. Reading the Bible anywhere couldn't be easier. Love the multiple books and the annotations.

A Google User

One of the best This app is really more of a full fledged program. It is an invaluable resource for studying the bible. The all is great and feature rich but when I think I might need it I have to open it before hand.

Adrian Bogle

Simplistic The app is by far superior to the rest, in my opinion. You are given a simplistic design, but creative control and freedom. The ability to sync multiple devices with the ease of creating notes is amazing.

Steven Enns

We're have all the ready to use parallel Bible's gone? Complicated, and they make you sign up. All I want is a basic parallel Bible that doesn't come with junk mail...

Cleve Thompson

Great app I began using Olive Tree Bible Study app way back when on my Palm Pilot. Back then the Palm Pilot and the Olive Tree app were very limited in ways to study the Bible. However as my portable computers grew in utility so did Olive Tree! Now I have a lap top with Windows and an Android cell phone and tablet and can now do first class study. I particularly love being able to link all my Bible helps, various translations and study note, dictionaries, maps, and commentaries to the verse in the Bible I am reading. It is remarkable that over the last 15-20 years Olive Tree has been able to keep a record of the resources I have purchased and when I have upgraded my computers/phones/tablets, my resources have seamlessly followed me. The newest release is slower to load....because there is so much TO load.

Michael Leavitt

I really like the cross references, easy to use and lots of them. The app is slow to open on my tablet, and really slow when I added the NIV and NKJV (2 minutes). Had to remove them. Otherwise my bible of choice.

Samuel Ivande

Excellent Bible app I have enjoyed using this app and found it to be well designed and very valuable.

Peter B

When you edit a highlight and change the verse numbers the highlight is not shown correctly! I love this app and its great that many bugs have been fixed. But still some improvements would be nice, e.g. an easier way to edit a highlight would be nice, so that you can add tags, add an adjacent verse or change the color of a highlight. Also a way to exit the App would be good, like there was in the old version.

Wisdom Kumah

Great app Very useful Bible app. Very easy to access chapters and verses. Makes Bible study more interesting.

Bryan Grant

Ok You only get one translation, other apps have many, many more for free. You have pay for the commentaries, and you would be crazy to do that when they are free on the Internet. It's not a bad app, but clearly an attempt at a cash grab.

Theresa Brown-Carver

Love It I love it so helpful in learning & understanding the Bible. So many different versions to choose from

Victor Zamora

Best Bible App I been using it since Palm OS... No other app has so many versions and languages, plus sync, notes and other functions.

Aileen Leong

I love this apps, it has many functions and different version of the bible which I can switch in between. I can also open multiple windows if I need to see different verse.

Adam Steadman

Working again When this app works, it's awesome! I'm glad to say that it works most of the time, but as a pastor I find it challenging when these resources aren't available for so long whrn things break. This app is the reason I have a tablet and it provides some amazing tools for daily reading, study, sermon prep, witnessing on the move, etc.

Kurt Johnson

Great App It has been almost 3 years now that I have used the bible study app and up to date it's one of the best around... There is always room for improvement like the layouts and access to their free resources but for now having a library in my pocket is all I really need. Shalom

john chengeta

Mr Johnce This is excellent I love it. Every day on my way to work I read two or three chapters. This is the only app which helped read the whole bible through it's easy reading plan

Henry Enumah

Great Study Bible Been hooked to this since my first iPhone and after trying out similar apps I can officially state that 'I am hooked'!

Fran Dexter

awesome for every serious christian for someonemthat wants to know the bible and be able to use it as a tool for sermons youth outreach and other church based functions it is a great tool for reference and the condorance is wonderful it really has changed my view in the bible too read it and understand it and what is meant well as close as possible from a poimt of view not actually the LORDS word and definite meaning but to be able to look up the insight of a passage and what is being said and how it applies really makes it worth taking the time and reading it again my only complaint i wish i woukd have had this earlier thanks

Doc Klaus

Modern Hebrew New Testament First of all, I'd like to thank all your team for this very helpful, practical, and aesthetically pleasant programme/app. It's amazing, indeed. :-) The only my regret is an absence of my favourite everyday translation, the Modern Hebrew New Testament (1976/revised 1991) by Israeli Bible Society (c) or at least the old translation by Delitzsch with nikkud. Unfortunately, very few biblical programmes offer this translation. Could you add this translation (MHNT) during your further updates? Thanks a lot.

Ken Patriquin

Problems with start up Just updated today. Now it will nit open goes to splash screen after that it closes with the error screen. I have used the Bible Study app for years. Read daily and use for ministry. All of a sudden, after last update, it takes a long time to get off of the solid green splash screen. Looks like it is stalling? Been using on same phone for years. What is the issue? Seems to be a problem for others as well.

George Delbridge

One of the best Bible studying program I've used this software for many years with Android and IOS, along with the PC version. The resources that Olivetree has with this app/program is enormous. At times after an upgrade with their apps I have had different crashing problems but over all I enjoy reading and studying with this app.

Tim S

Bible version changes. I was doing my daily reading this morning and something did not look right. Turns out the bible version changed from KJV to ESV. This is not acceptable!

Ricardo Del Valle

This is a great Bible app! It has many great features. These include being cross-platform, syncing, individual word highlighting, hyperlinked verses anywhere, split-screen, and in-depth word lookup (with the purchase of resources that sometimes are free). Overall, it is a very user friendly, organized, and well developed personal Bible app!

Joseph Blanton

Love it. Having the books on my device allows me to access them much faster than downloading as needed. In addition, I minister in an area with spotty internet access. OliveTree is a real asset, because I am not dependant on getting a good signal ro do study and research. Pastor Joe Blanton

Carolyn Collins

I too, had the app change versions and I had to change it back. Also now it won't open on my phone. All I get is a green screen with the logo on it. What can I do? I can rate it 5 stars if I can get into it!

A Google User

Latest update locks me out. So sad...i had a beautiful little program Olive Tree, which i just now updated. There was no warning in the description that said Olive Tree was changing to Bible+ and would no longer work on my device. Wish I could undo the update --- lost all my bibles and can't open it. I liked the old one better!

Mike Lewis

Had Logos--Prefer Olive Tree Let's face it, most of us who buy large Bible software packages never read nor use a lot of it, and for a variety of good reasons. With Olive Tree, YOU pick want YOU want in your library! Years ago I spent hundreds of dollars on Logos & used less than 10% of its resources. With Olive Tree (free software), lots of free books, & great prices on pay-for books, it's a no-brainer! I am very happy with Olive Tree.

Stelin Wersely

Hey wonederful work.... Its soo good in adding notes and highlights copying and so on..... But plz improve the navigation and make it possible to compare all four versions at a time.... Plz fix those,and one more thing plz try to add amplified version too

Carol Hildebrand

Bible by Olive Tree Haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but its The Bible...and it always gets a 5 star rating.

David Hanna

Meh This was a VERY good app? Now pop-ups ("notifications") & "samples" mixed in with my library. Enough with the pushy marketing. Please don't peddle scriptures like tabloids. [update 6 June 2016 - another advertising pop up. Down to 1 star. They still don't get it]

Brian Pouliot

Best Bible study app Offline mode works great! I love the ESV with Strong's references built in, as well as the numerous other resources available from the library. It's so fast to do a quick word study or passage search. Great app!

Jimbo Bowers

Nice, clean, complete Bible app This newer version has improved it's features with lots of Bible versions, even in several languages, more books, lots of reading plans, easy notes, etc. I still get lost in their menu and figuring where I am in a book. Seems like it needs an indication of chapter, section, & page for these long old theology books.

Garth D. Wiebe

The Android version works well. This has the best software functionality of any app, way better than Logos (although far fewer titles to choose from, by comparison), or any other app. It is my go-to app for accessing scripture and original language (Greek/Hebrew) texts in my shirt pocket, with the most powerful search and hyperlinking capabilities. (Note: This review is for the Android version. I have given poor reviews to the iOS and Mac OS X versions, because of pathetic lack of testing by their software development team, resulting in many bugs, crashes, and user interface problems.) This review is for Android 6.0.1 on a Samsung Galaxy S7, model SM-G930FD.

Robert Wood

This truly the Lord at work through the creators of this app The next best thing to mortal food and water. It helps me stay on fire and thirst more for God's word. Its also shows me how big God's family is by connecting and sharing the word with others.

Rebekah Carter Looney

Really good app I wish it gave a choice of only the KJV version. Has good fonts and sizes for vision problems. Lots of free add ons. Excellent service.

Mar-Loyd Quinto

Not Working Smooth So slow. All Bibles ive downloaded disappeared. :( I like the UI and all. Searchung specific verses and words are great but how can I or we use it effectively when its always crashing.

Zeveion Chronexas

Thank you for this great Bible app Wonderful, but since you did a major update on most resources, maybe you could add an Update All button to update all the resources? Otherwise it's a bit troublesome to update every resource separately. Thanks.

SaiBaba Velpula

Good Really amazing app, I never had any app like this. I loved it and enjoying my devotionals through this app. app layout and design is wonderful, especially the dual Bible reading on one screen great work.

Scott Masters

Last few updates The last updates have really reduced the usability of this app on both my phone and tablet. Off-line startup is nearly impossible.

Mel Jack

Excellent Study Bible The reference verses that are shown above the verses makes it very easy & time saving for an elaborate study. We can cross reference a certain word & it's occurrence in other books by simply tapping the superscript. The layout & user-friendliness make this a great Study Bible.

Charles McDougal

Used To Be 5 Star Update: Becoming more frustrating to use. Crashes often and clocks many times for minutes. I have purchased many items for the app and use it extensively. Please fix! These problems occur on my two tablets and my phone. What used to be a 5 star app is now 2.5 stars and heading toward 2.....

Davis I. Burnett

Appreciate it Works well with a slight learning curve. Really wish I could get New Living version but NIV will work. Love, love, love the highlight option. God is good!

Rubber Bubbles

Proplems Im keeping a five star rating but I have been having trouble with my books. Every time I click to change version it closes my app. If you could fix it that would be great thanks

A Google User

Still Getting better, but... Not very many apps can be as nice and yet free as this one. It has been my only bible app for close to 5 years now and runs accross several devices (ipad, S4, z10 and pc) but as it grows, it is quickly overwhelming my devices.

Benjamin M. H. Kim

Tech Helped After updating the latest version this app crashed. I noted that experience and my frustration here. The tech dept contacted me and provided possible solutions, one of which worked. It got me going again with this app, which I'm thankful.

Greg Mohney

Uhh...every Bible software in the world, free or not, includes a Strong's concordance. I see your OliveTree "branded" concordance has Strong's info, but I have to pay? And you want $20 for a KJV with Strong's numbers? Haha. Ridiculous cash grab. Uninstalling now.

Charles Kolawole

Awesome Not many free things are great. This is exceptional. I have loved it for years now and still my best Bible app. Charles OK.

Jim Passmore

Nice, but... Good app. I like the user interface. It was too big and slow for my Nexus 7 2012, but runs very smooth on my newer, higher-end tablet. Compared to the competing widely used app... Positives: every translation downloaded, so you don't have to be online (other app allows downloading, but not by default). More study tools. Copying a few verses to paste into notes is easier. Negatives: slower, bigger drag on device. Fewer free English translations available. Fewer Bible reading plans.

Peter B

When you edit a highlight and change the verse numbers the highlight is not shown correctly! I love this app and it's great that many bugs have been fixed. Would be great if the interface language can be changed in the settings.

markesia miller

I Love it It really helps in breaking down scripture to understand in laymen terms.

Still The Best Bible App This a great app continues to be the best! I not only get to do Bible Study but get great ebooks that I enjoy reading offline. Would recommend to any Christian who likes having the Word of God at their fingertips.


Once excellent now unstable A once excellent resource, which I have used over the years and purchased a number of (over priced) books through. The programme is now very unstable, crashes often, freezes during searches and downloads. This is the case across a number of my devices. I will have to look for a new study app and avoid investing in library purchases unusable when the app becomes unstable.

Olive Tree NO THIS IS NOT "FOR AN OLDER VERSION". STILL CRASHES CONSTANTLY. ADDITIONALLY NO ONE AT OLIVE TREE SEEMS TO CARE. I have gone all in with this app to the tune of thousands of dollars in electronic books because it was initially so much better than anything available. To my great dismay they have been "improving" it. It is still a good tool but the "improvements" have left me dissatisfied for the following reasons: constantly crashes, freezes during use both generally as well as within specific features in the app. I have reported it many many many many many times with no resolution.

Best Bible app ever Very easy to use, informative and very user friendly. I also like how it's completely offline and does not require Internet connection.

Sonny Cannatella

Closest thing to PC Bible software on a Phone I love this app. Only wish it had better dictionaries for the KJV. Words were used differently in the days of the KJV, the option of using an older dictionary would be great, such as the old Websters dictionary. This would get KJV readers closer to the translators' understanding of the Hebrew and Greek. This app does, however, does work a lot like expensive bible study software on PCs, except fine tuned for smart phones/tablets.

Bob Newport

Good with occasional problems Update: after receiving advice from the support team, which included reinstalling the default version and downloading the extras afresh, I am happily back in a position of being able to enjoy using it. Thank you. Since writing the original feedback I have been getting mostly crashes on selecting 'reading plans'; I am on the verge of uninstalling from my tablet. Original comments: This is a nice app overall; I like the facility to display two versions side by side for instance. However, it can lack stabil

Vicky Burnor

Very good Bible app! I especially like the way cross references are handled. I can go deep within the cross reference chain and then easily go back to the original scripture. (The new updates have made this app even better! I use it every day.) Also their customer service is excellent! I had trouble switching to a new device (my own mistake caused the problem). The Olive Tree customer service person diligently helped me work through the problem and the switch was successful! Thank you very much!

Very helpful I'm very happy for being a user of this Bible. It has helped me in different ways to get the best of all the good news I ever needed. The search option is very powerful that it displays what you are searching even before you finish typing it. It's an easy to use Bible. The best I've ever used. God bless the producer. This Bible study is highly recommended to all who needs to know more about God and His word.

Love this but note function needs fixing My go to Bible but the note taking function is a constant annoyance. I have to continually click the pen icon to edit every time I even scroll the Bible window, and now you've disabled the in built android paste function so I have to use your paste button. But that moves the cursor back to the top of a note, so it is now IMPOSSIBLE to paste content lower in a long note. Please fix this, it's so frustrating!

Corrie Hicks

Easy to use! Excellent app for those wanting a simple, user-friendly interface. You can quick search verses by word or phrase. You can create your own reading plan that is easy to use and follow. I love the simplicity of this app, but an audio accompaniment would be a sweet addition!

Joel Awogu

Very nice but... Great bible I must say. V6 makes it much easier except for 2 issues. 1st, the notes edit method has changed. I can't read my saved notes without the keyboard popping out to edit. Entering edit mode should be restricted to tapping the edit tab. 2nd, the hyperlinks no longer pop up, instead it changes the window. Please fix and it will be perfect.

A Google User

V6 much improved, great Bible reading and study app The bugs of version 6 seem to be worked out. Start up time is better. Sync issues seem to be gone. This is my go-to app for Bible reading and preparation. Over the years I have gotten quite a few Bibles and study helps over this platform. I still would like the hyperlinks to open in a window as opposed to changing the content of the pane.

Martha Kru

I use it daily Many fine features to help me study the Bible, even to teach it! I like the program, Reading the Bible in a Year Chronologically. I like being able to highlight in color and/or copying verses to notes. And I can pull up several different installed Bible versions (some free) while offline! The part I dislike about it is that it will NOT copy the verse numbers with the verse, tho I have it set to do so. I have written them about it & they say they will fix it, but that was months ago!

Tom Olmsted

Satisfactory Bible app I've used Olive Tree for years, as it allowed me to seamlessly sync my studies between my phone, Mac, and Evernote. I recently discovered, though, that Evernote auto sync is no longer supported. This is a deal breaker for me, and is the reason for the 2 star drop. It's still a decent Bible app, but YouVersion's speed and UI may be better for casual users. I'll be migrating away from Olive Tree once I export my notes.

Emiy Pooky

Stopped opening on my Note 4 edge after their last update. Before this I would rate them 5 + star. Pls correct this cos your app was the best amongst other apps. I don't have any Bible on my phone anymore cos I haven't seen any as good as theirs. Correct this

can you make a way to leave the app easily? I'm not signing into any account for anything, i'm after a certain book other than my base one. would you be willing to put the books from the book of mormon, the book of Abraham from the pearl of great price, the lost books and the books from the book of enoch into this app also? I'm better at referencing things than i am at reading them. i'm a visual and audio learner.

j & p witty

Not inerrant, but pretty close Love this app. It has totally replaced my paper bible.... which I thought would never happen. Especially love the NET bible version with full notes. Excellent and accurate. Keep up the good work!


5stars to 3 I have numerous phones and tablets, new and old. The recent 6.0 update has reduced usability on all of them. 6.3.7 has improved it a bit. Switching to a new passage can take up to 5 seconds on all devices. **Also the primary thing I use the app for is searching. The search function in recent updates has become a hindrance. This app fails to allow the search results to show up in the split window and the popup blocks the main text. Please bring search capabilities up to par.

A Blessing (but tends to work slow at times) Many Bible apps require an active internet connection, but this one saves the Bible into your phone so you can read offline. There are occasional tidbits (seasonal devotions) that are sent via app notifications. Only minor issue is that since everything is saved on your phone it takes up a lot of space and can be slow to load. But it's a small price for having the Bible anywhere with you in your phone. A must have for any believer!

Ram Kalaskar

Best Bible app.... But... I'm having problems of app hangs with 6.3.7 version. once every three times, when I try to open a specific scripture (GOTO -> a book -> a chapter -> a verse) it hangs with loading animation. The only way out seems to be close the app from app tray and relaunch it.

Andrew Grant

Excellent App Nigh on perfect for Bible study with so many useful features. Split-screen linked versions is really helpful. The range of Bibles available for free download is very good and other translations are reasonably priced. There are many other good looking reference books available in the store but they are a bit pricey.

Frederick Zeisig

Can no longer change bible Can't change the Bible. Menu just dissapears when tapped. Used to work until latest version update

Ronnie Van Zant

This has become my go-to Bible app to use on my tablet, phone, and desktop! It syncs up my highlights and notes perfectly every time. I used to use a different Bible app but have since moved to Olive Tree. The library of materials is huge! The only reason I can't give it a 5 is because the UI can be a bit harsh at times. It could really benefit from getting a redesign to make it smoother and more current. It feels like it is behind the times a little when it comes to design.

Carrie Wray

I really like the reading plans! I started having issues with it freezing up, but they contacted me, and are working through the issues. It's working better now!

Jarikre Joseph

This app is wonderful, but It's ok allow me to study different versions of the Bible same time. But some times, this refuses to open.

David Koh

I really love the display and clear format plus this app can get my favourite study bible the fire bible on my phone now i don't have to carry heavy and bulky bible around. I can now study God's Word on my mobile phone everywhere i go. So fantastic!

Sam Onyuchi

The best Bible app in play store Works perfectly well, loads very fast, sweet and easy to use, it makes my note taking easy and i access them with ease. I have it in my iPad and my Android phone... Love it

Zack Skrip

Best bible app out there This app crosses over from mobile to desktop study perfectly. Has all of the high power features while still being mobile friendly. Also has a great desktop version. Since they moved to the 6+ versions it's gotten even better.

Keenan Rhea

Best Bible study app I have found The only problem is sometimes this app is a little buggy, but the newer version fixed most of the problems

D K.

Best Bible software on Android Cant say enough good about this app. Especially love that it updates across all my devices....notes, highlights, bookmarks etc Best Bible app on Android

A Google User

A maturing Bible app for Android OS I have been using the OT Bible Reader since it's first Android release. The absolute best Android Bible app just keeps getting better. Now on my Google Pixel C with 7.0 Nougat.

William Bode

Best for offline searching Although you must pay for the best versions you can then use them even without a connection. Can be very slow or hang lots.

Alexis Castelle

Best Study app I was worried when I switched from Windows phone to Android I wouldn't be able to utilize this great app. Best Study tool I've found that doesn't need internet to have full access to study aids. LOVE IT!!!!

Richard James

I made an error after i installed this app. I have corrected the error. The app works fine. Searching is fast, the navigation is easy. It has lots of other features. I'm going to enjoy studying with this app.

David Akers

Unreliable. Sunday morning I wake it up to read and all I see is a spinning "I am more important" thingy. I wish it could just work consistently.

Tony Whitmarsh

Excellent app I have tried a number of Bible apps and IMHO this is by FAR the best. it offers a great balance of flexibility / power and usability / intuitiveness. It is quick to find a passage by offering the books and chapters in a grid format. You can split the screen so e.g. main passage / Bible version is on the left and on the right can be alternative Bible version, cross references/footnotes or study Bible notes. You can sync the two panes. You get the NSV and ESV free and can purchase additional Bibles, Study Bibles and resources for reasonable cost (typically 10-20GBP).

Hyacinth Sybil Galano

Very convenient to use even if you don't have an internet connection. It's just shutting down sometimes or not responding.

Matthew McLellan

Gitchy Great resource but very glitchy. The highlight tool is incredibly difficult to use and the hyperlinks frequently go to the wrong book, chapter and verse.

Michael Jones

Excellent integrated set of tools The right tools at your fingertips make an otherwise laborious set of tasks into time spent that is enjoyable and rewarding. "It is the glory of kings to search a matter out."

K Holmes

Outstanding App After several installs this app works outstanding! My crazy phone kept messing the app up. I read every morning and evening from this app! Thank you!!!

Nick Curry

An Excellent Resource The Olive Tree Bible app has exceeded my expectations. It provides access to numerous Bible study resources, and allows me to use those resources on my mobile devices as well as on my desktop computer. And my highlights and notes made on one device instantly become available on all my devices. This is quite useful. I am very pleased and recommend it highly.

Caldonia Konopka

Very functional Being able to link the scriptures together and to categorize them appropriately according to my knowledge of the word of God this is the most suited electronic Bible for my use I think it's awesome there could be a little more enhancements to other than those little things it's a good tool

John Hard

Excellent resource Before getting a tablet, I used an NASB study bible with Strong's greek/Hebrew word study. This is the exact same except that on the tablet you can click on the word and go straight to the definition from the original text. Word searches are very easy to do and yield thorough results. It has become my primary bible for bible study purposes.

Pete Sandford

The best Bible app is the one you have with you! I have the full Accordance Ultimate on my PC, but Olive Tree offer something so much better - the ability to access the texts and commentaries on my Android phone and tablet. The weekly offers and promotions are consistently better priced than either Accordance or Logos. Unquestionably the best!

Sian Jones

Excellent app: stable and comprehensive Easy to use but lots of features. I like the way you can easily compare translations. The split screen allows you to add commentaries (from the publisher) and read them next to the text. Lots of material available, with several popular translations (e.g. King James, NIV, ESV) free.

Galen Cook

I LOVE THIS APP I currently use this app on my laptop and tablet. My favorite part is the search feature that allows me to find scriptures. The search features has vastly improved over the passed year. I am also able to sync across devices easily to view my notes, highlights, and bookmarks.

Daniel Williams

Olive Tree Study Bible ESV I had other Bible apps loaded, but I found this and let the others go. This Bible app is the real deal. It's all there...easy to use, read, navigate and the extras make it the best. I loaded their parallel NKJV / ESV as well. Top of the line products for free...That's as good as it gets!!! Try em, you'll love em!!!

Stephen Said

Almost perfect This is my go tto stuy app. I am able to work with it across devices. Being able to natively look up Hebrew and Greek words on my tablet is incredibly handy. If the developers make this app aplit screen friendly for Android 7.0, it would be an instant 7 stars.

Abiodun Oduola

WORD OF GOD MADE SIMPLE I love the Olive tree Bible products, it give those that study the Word of God the simplicity of the Word. Moreover, the additional features makes it superb. The Bible tools are delightful, so precise, easy to use and understand. Good work!God bless the programmers of the softwares.
