Whether you’re on a phone or tablet, one of the main Bible study features of the Olive Tree Bible App is the split window.
In this blog, we’ll show you six ways you can use the split window for your iPhone or iPad.
(Click here for Android.)
First, to access the six features of the split window do this:
Once you tap the ‘More’ button, you will see six different features you can access in the split window.
1. The first and most popular is the Resource Guide
The Resource Guide is your personal Bible study assistant. It looks to the main window of the app and pulls in relevant study helps such as people, places, topics, cross references, commentary notes, maps, and more. The more resources you have in your library, the more powerful the Resource Guide will be.
2. Recently Opened
This feature allows you to quickly view a list of recently-opened resources. Whether you were recently reading another Bible translation or a Christian eBook, you can quickly pull it up in the split window here.
3. Library Favorites
This list is curated by you and chosen from your library. When you tap ‘Library Favorites’, you will see your current list and you’ll have the option to add or remove titles.
4. Open Library
This is the easiest way to set up a parallel Bible or put your commentary notes right next to your Bible text. Simply select an additional resource from your library and it will be side by side with whatever title you have open in the main window. If it’s an ‘enhanced resource’ like another Bible or study notes it will stay in sync with the resource in the main window.
5. My Notes
One of my personal favorites is having my notes open in the split window. Whether you’re journaling during your own devotion time or taking notes from the text as your pastor is speaking, having the ability to take notes in the split window is a convenient feature.
6. Add Note
Tap this option to create a note. You can connect it to the Scripture you’re reading in the main window by tag or category.
If you are a regular user of any of these features in the split window, we’d love to hear what your favorite is. Comment below to share!
