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, audio Bible, or any other Bible study 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: -AUDIO BIBLES -DAILY READING PLANS -DEVOTIONALS -BIBLE MAPS -STUDY BIBLES -COMMENTARIES -EBOOKS -CHRISTIAN AUDIO BOOKS -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. Want to listen safely while you drive? Turn on drive mode! 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.

I used Olive Tree on my old flip phone before the iPhone was invented. I was able to read the bible on my Olive Tree flip phone by using automatic scrolling. Why can't you allow automatic scrolling on the iPhone?
Great app but it’s unfortunate that the option of underlining words and phrases is not available. Love highlighting but sometimes it’s necessary to underline a particular phrase within a highlighted verse. It doesn’t make sense this great app does not offer this option hence the 4 stars instead of five.
Love this app it’s awesome. An improvement would be to add the superscripts that are actually in the published Dake’s Bible to be able to more accurately reference the material in the notes so as to understand how the notes relate to the specific scriptures.
It is wonderful always having the Word with you. Always there to review and understand.
I love this app as I’ve had it for a decade or more. The study tools and the maps and the periodic bible information to learn more in God’s Word is fantastic. While I prefer to read the book bible I have this app on my phone and two tablets where I can go on my spiritual journey when reading or studying. In addition you can split the screen. While in church the Pastor will be expositing out of a book and specific chapter verses. When he takes off on the journey through the scriptures it’s faster to stay where you are in the study and see and read where he is referencing God’s perfect Word.
I work in Bible translation, and have found this app invaluable. While many of my colleagues use Logos, I have been hesitant to use it because it is very expensive, and you must buy a package that does not necessarily have the resources you want. I like that on Olive Tree I can choose the resources I want. The interface works well and is easily searchable. I take advantage of the many sales so I can build a good library at a good cost. This is an excellent resource for studying the Bible!
There are a few apps that I have purchased and used and have stayed with for years and gotten all the free upgrades that have moved from just being an “app-on-my-phone” to an important part of my daily life.
I’ve used this app for some years now and I’ve really enjoyed the usefulness and functionality that is integrated with the commentaries and notes. I also like the tag function wchich has helped keep theme scriptures together and in order.
Bible study has given me a new avenue to delve into the word wherever I am! It is easy to use with great study tools and reading plans! I love it!
Left to our own devices, we head for great problems, even if we copy ‘good’ people, because the Bible tells us that only Christ-followers have the LIGHT OF THE WORLD...JESUS,Himself.
