Important Notice Regarding the Bible+ Windows Store App

Posted by on 04/04/2016 in:

The mission of Olive Tree Bible Software is to inspire people to connect with God and the Bible via technology. Since our beginning as a company we’ve been blessed to carry out this mission and see God’s word being read and studied all around the world. While technology has changed our mission has remained the same and by God’s grace we’ll continue to carry out this mission for many years to come.

We love to hear from people around the globe who have been with us through the many iterations of our App and advances in technology. Many of you found us while looking for a Bible for your very first handheld mobile device and as you moved from device to device your Olive Tree notes, highlights, and Bible study resources have moved with you.

In order for us to continue to fulfill our mission we sometimes have to adapt to the changing market of technology to best focus our software development resources to serve the widest range of people.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to let you know we will no longer be supporting the Windows Store App (different than our Windows Desktop App).

What does this mean?

  • As of today there will be no further updates to the Windows Store App
  • Starting May 2 it will no longer be available to download from the Windows Store

What can I do?

-> Make sure that you have an account with us. This ensures that your notes, highlights, bookmarks, and all of your purchased resources can be used on our other platforms such as PC, Mac, Android, iOS, and Kindle.

-> If you have a PC, Mac, Android, iOS or Kindle Fire device, download our App and with an account you can still use the same great tools you’ve been accustomed to on the Windows App version. Simply download it (HERE) and login with your account.

Our Windows Desktop App runs on any Microsoft Surface Pro and if you are logged in with your account you’ll be able to access all of your books and custom annotations. Click HERE to download the Windows Desktop App now.

While we understand this may be a painful transition we appreciate your understanding and hope to continue to provide a great Bible study experience for many more years to come! If you have any further questions or need assistance in this transition please contact our support team.

Windows Store App Update!

Posted by on 05/22/2014 in:

We’ve excited to announce a major update to our Windows Store App!

There are several ways that we’ve updated the Windows Store App experience.

To name a few:

  • Multi-verse notes/highlights. The app now detects that whole verse(s) are selected and creates the annotation as book-chapter-verse instead of word-based.
  • Mass-annotation management.
    • Select multiple annotations/categories and delete all of them
    • Drag & drop selected items to another subcategory to move them.
    • The drag & drop works well when the destination is a sibling of the annotation/category, but there is also a “Move To” menu on selection to easily move annotations/categories anywhere.
  • Tagging annotations works a lot like the To/CC/BCC fields in modern email interfaces. That is, typing shows suggestions of existing ones along with the ability to create & use a new one.
  • Better control of removing highlights from the text – rather than simply a “Remove all” (that are included in the selected text) it is possible to remove individual highlights.

This update also includes:

  • Lookup selected text/word
  • Option to always scroll vertically
  • Finished the layout of Resource Guide, specifically how cross-references are handled.
  • Lots of squished bugs!
  • Many tweaks/enhancements/fixes based on reading user reviews over the last few months.
