Olive Tree Bible Software’s New Zondervan Study Bible App
Olive Tree Bible Software wanted to take their current Bible software and create a new app for the Zondervan Study Bible. The app needed to contain the full text of the New International Version (NIV) Bible and have several features including a searchable index, split screen to view Bible text and study notes together, and the ability to add notes and highlight text.
Olive Tree has a small in-house development team and needed more developers to complete their app within a tight schedule. Olive Tree elected to use Xamarin.Forms to build the app so that a single shared C# codebase could be used to create native UI for both Android and IOS. Olive Tree knew this approach would save time, but their team had little experience with Xamarin development.
Olive Tree chose IntelliTect to augment their team and assist with the creation of the iOS and Android apps specifically because IntelliTect has certified software engineers with Xamarin Mobile Development Certification and previous Xamarin experience.
