BibleReader 5 Demo

Olive Tree makes iTunes Rewind 2010 list!

Lots of excitement around Olive Tree this week…through your customer support we have made it into 8 category lists on the iTunes’ Rewind 2010! One of our iPhone apps made the top five ebook list!

Other significant categories Olive Tree made were:

Bible Reader 5.0 Videos

There are some minor changes since these videos were made, but here is an idea as to what BibleReader 5.0 will look like. We had these on a loop at the recent Evangelical Theological Society and Society for Biblical Literature Conferences in Atlanta, GA.

Look out Atlanta!

The Evangelical Theological Society and the Society for Biblical Literature’s annual conference is coming up soon in Atlanta, GA.  Olive Tree is sending representatives to both conferences and we’ll be showing off features of our new BibleReader 5 (aka “Glacier”).

Three-in-one Study

Greetings from the desk of Olive Tree’s newest member! My name is Danny Scott and I’ll be managing the many community channels of Olive Tree, such as this blog, Twitter and Olive Tree’s Facebook page.  Though it’s been several years since college, I still find in myself an ever-present student which makes working here very exciting.  I think that being a student of the Word with access to Olive Tree’s resources will be a great combination.

The recent videos by Dr. Bill Mounce on the usefulness of Study Bibles and Concordances gave me an interesting idea.  If a study bible and concordance are the two items every student of the Word should have in their library, does BibleReader allow them to be used at the same time?  I decided to try it out.  Using the iPhone split screen, I can essentially have three products open simultaneously. Looking at Hebrews 1 using the ESV with Strong’s and the ESV Study Bible Notes I decided to see what both Strong’s and the study bible notes said on the word “glory” in the phrase “He is the radiance of the glory of God.” Strong’s gives me the original meaning for the word “glory” and the study notes takes the context of the passage into account, while also cross-referencing “glory” with other passages in Scripture. As you can see in this screenshot, the Bible, Strong’s, and the study notes can all be open at the same time!

Speaking of screenshots…be sure to subscribe to Olive Tree’s newsletter at this link to see Project Glacier begin to take shape! The next newsletter will hopefully be out by the end of this week (or next week).
