If you’re a pastor or ministry leader who does a lot of lesson planning or message preparation, I highly recommend getting a second monitor. This allows you to have The Bible Study App open on one screen and your word document open on another without the hassle of having to constantly switch between windows.
Whether you have dual monitors or not though one great feature found only in The Bible Study App for the Mac or Windows desktop is the Resource Guide ‘Popout.’ First, I’ll select a title from the Resource Guide.
In the screen below I’ve selected Easton’s Dictionary of the Bible. But what if I want to look at a map and then come back to the dictionary? Instead of going back and selecting another title from my resource guide I’ll use the ‘Popout’ feature instead.
Now Easton’s is open in its own window and I can go back to my library and select my maps without losing access to my dictionary. This is the digital equivalent of having a bunch of books open on my desk. You can ‘Popout’ as many resources from your library as you’d like, expand, hide, or layer the windows and still be able to use their full functionality. Along with Olive Tree’s Bible Study App let me again recommend using a secondary monitor. The ease of being able to assemble a lesson or message while not having to switch between windows will greatly affect your preparation time!
