Pros and cons of Bible by Olive Tree app for iPhone and iPad

Bible by Olive Tree app good for

My new study library ! The value of the whole contents (study bibles, books, dictionnaries...) makes this app the new mobile library. Would appreciate to know how to contribute (dev, text providing) for additionnal languages bible translations (my wish is to add Malagasy) and other types of contents.
After several years of use : brilliant app ! Greatly blessed me. Thanks to Olive Tree !!!!
Have used this app for yrs. It is my own personal bible that I can take everywhere & read whenever I want. I read my daily chapters, highlight verses I want to remember, take notes and bookmark pages I want to read tomorrow. Highly recommend it
A fantastic app, easy to use and nice evolutions, backed up by a really helpful support team if you ever have an issue. How fantastic to carry multiple versions of the Bible, in multiple languages, plus concordance all in a tablet! Also the ability to add notes and highlight without messing up the appearance of the Bible page is fantastic. Highly recommended!
This app is the best Bible app Ive found until now, it is a great job and the notes/search/navigation possibilities are almost unlimited, thanks a lot to all the developpers! Please add a French version with Strong numbers and Hebrew and Greek dictionary!!!
Le OliveTree Bibelreader qui est à mon avis un des meilleurs, peut-être le meilleur Bibelreader pour iPhone et iPad pour le moment. Je travaille avec le Luther Studybibel (en Allemand) qui est une très bonne traduction et c’est un de la traduction rare qui comprend tous les livres de Bibel (y compris les livres de Deuterocanonique, qui sont très impotant pour moi en tant que catholique). Je rends grâces à l’Éternel pour tous ceux dentre vous qui travaillent sur le projet OliveTree. Dieu vous bénisse. The OliveTree Bibelreader which is in my opinion one of the best, perhaps the best Bibelreader for iPhone and iPad for the moment. I am working with the Luther Studybibel which is a very good translation and it is one of the rare translation which includes all of the Bibel books (including the Deuterokanonical Books, which are very impotant to me as a catholic). I praise the glory of the Lord for all of you who wirked on this OliveTree Bibelproject. God bless you.
