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.

  • Won’t load on iPad 4th gen.

    By Cwtech
    Crashes on startup on iOS 10.3.3 - the last available update for the iPad 4th gen. Disappointing. Love it on my iPhone with the latest iOS version.

    Wonderful. I love having a portable bible Love I can change to white on black.
  • Latest Update

    By bgabbert
    The latest update changed the format of the reading plans. I’m not sure why this was changed, the other way was great. The new version does not appear to allow you to see the dates like the previous version did: For example, if you get behind in reading you can’t see how far you need to go to catch up, I’m referring to the “Projected End Date”. Please make it more like it used to be. Otherwise, it’s a great app. I use it all the time and I love it.
  • Love it!

    By Asia from Hendersonville
    This app is such a great tool for studying God's word. It makes it so easy to compare translations or search for a scripture based on key words. I wish there were more free reading plans offered but I'm thankful to have this resource.
  • Great App

    By Mattryan82
    This is a great app. A little more bells and whistles than the YouVersion. Only thing I wish they would change is the app icon - it’s pretty ugly. Please update it to something a little more modern! Maybe a cool icon of the Bible!
  • Love this app

    By Iikethisapp
    This is a brilliant app! Helps me so much!
  • Read the entire bible

    By jlb3d
    For whatever reason I was having trouble finding an app that would allow me to read the Bible freely. I downloaded several apps that only provided daily verses instead or wanted $$ for any versions except the most archaic ones. This app delivers beautifully offering NIV for free download! And when you put it down and close the app it will remember exactly where you were for next time you want to read. I haven’t even tried all the special tools but they look like more than I could ever use.
  • Robust, Flexible, Details that Make a Difference

    By Marshal P
    I did a lot of research and landed on Olive Tree’s app years ago and was very happy with the choice. As I’ve seen other Bible apps offer new features, I’ve tried them, but I keep coming back to this app as my ‘go-to’ app. It sounds minor, but I love the fact that I can highlight portions (or even individual words) of a verse rather than being forces to highlight the entire verse. That makes a difference to me, when I want to capture a moment of insight or inspiration. I also appreciate that Olive Tree keeps evolving and adding new features. Their recent update to the Plans section is visually more engaging and I look forward to using it more. Food for Thought for Olive Tree: One thing I’d love to see explored/expanded is more community/sharing aspects to allow users to more easily share their study insights to a more focused audience/community (ie, not social media) and even jointly do a reading plan together. But the many strengths of the app outweigh this ‘nice to have’ in my view.
  • Very Useful

    I have grown to really love this app. It has been a wonderful resource in my teaching and writing ministry. I love the fact that I can acquire resources that are easy to use and much less expensive than the competition.
