Recent Changes to our iOS Notification System

We recently changed the iPad/iPhone notification/message system that we use within the app. The new system we've moved to will allow for future enhancements that were not previously possible. With the initial release of the new system, there is no longer a spot within the Menu to view the verse of the day/week. In the future, we do plan to offer a location within the Menu to view the current verse of the day. We are not sure yet when this will be available, so we thank you for your patience in this matter.

In some cases, notification settings may have been changed in the latest update. To manage your subscriptions, tap the Menu button in the upper left corner of the app and then go to Messages > Subscribe.

The verse of the day should appear as a notification in the Recent Notifications menu. While your device's screen is on, swipe down from the top of the screen. This should reveal a list of notifications. Tapping on the verse notification from Olive Tree will open the app to that verse.

If you missed today's verse of the day or a verse of the day from the past, you can view them on Bible Gateway's website. (We share the same verse of the day with Bible Gateway.) Here is the link:
