Olive Tree Brings BibleReader to the iPhone

Olive Tree Bible Software, electronic publisher of Bible resources for mobile platforms, unveils its full-featured BibleReader for iPhone.

Spokane, WA, October 17, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Olive Tree Bible Software, known for its BibleReader software across major mobile platforms, has released BibleReader for iPhone. BibleReader joins the ranks of Christian and Bible applications on iTunes—a category that has enjoyed an unanticipated popularity on the App Store since its launch. BibleReader was downloaded over 9,000 times in its first three days on the App Store, and over 40,000 downloads have been recorded to date.

Olive Tree products now available on the App Store include the popular New International Version (NIV) Bible along with other translations such as the English Standard Version (ESV), the New King James Version (NKJV), and the Amplified Bible. The ESV Study Bundle provides commentary and cross references for deeper study, accessible from within the program.

Independent reviewers (touchrundown.com, christianmonthlystandard.com) have received the new BibleReader favorably, citing several features that separate it from other Bible applications for iPhone. These include continuous scrolling (no buttons to press at the end of Bible chapters or books), complete text storage on your device (read without an active internet connection), and highly advanced search capabilities. "The bottom line is that the search capabilities of BibleReader for iPhone rival that of even desktop software," writes one reviewer (touchrundown.com).

The new software development demonstrated in the iPhone release will form the foundation for BibleReader 4.0, available next year for major mobile platforms including Windows Mobile (Pocket PC), Symbian, and BlackBerry. Olive Tree has something to offer every mobile device user, and continues to develop their BibleReader software for new and emerging mobile platforms, including Android, the open-source platform developed by Google and scheduled to launch fall 2008.
