I’ve been using Olive Tree’s BibleReader Soft­ware for a few years now. I really enjoy BibleReader’s abil­ity to orga­nize and tag user typed notes for easy retrieval — as well as col­lect­ing them in one place. How­ever, I’ve recently improved my note-taking strat­egy by using a sec­ond hand­writ­ing app. Now, I have a two-app-workflow using […]

One of the biggest com­plaints from long-time users of Olive Tree’s soft­ware update, Project Glac­ier, comes from not being able to find that ever-so-handy verse chooser!
