Deceiving app 1/5
deceiving contents , will never use it again
Perfect for my needs.
Please fix 5/5
It doesn’t run smooth watching videos on conference with iOS 11 please!! Fix help the lords work grow
Playback issues 2/5
The app is great but for one glaring issue. I use the app regularly to listen to conference talks, but if my phone is locked and I use my headphones or the playback controls on the lock screen or from the control center to pause it and then unpause it, it will start playing the video instead of I pausing the audio.
Glitch! Please fix 4/5
Theres a major glitch. The apps keeps crashing every time i open it. Other times it loads then says "gospel library updating" (or something along those lines) and then it never loads. I tried restarting my device, but it didnt work. Please fix the glitch.
Too many unwelcome changes 2/5
Only searches downloaded content, I often have to google question + lds.org to find what I am looking for, especially if multiple words are involved. Then I can download the missing content and read it.
Too much drilling down to content, seems busy and confusing being presented with every manual possible.
New formatting of Gospel Doctrine manuals is a problem 5/5
By Early a.m. Singers
The new formatting of the Gospel Doctrine manual makes it much more difficult to use when teaching from an iPad. The special fonts and abundance of white space are beautiful but greatly decrease the percentage of the lesson that is visible at one time. Because teaching only permits an occasional glance at the device, it is essential that a person be able to see as much as possible at a time. Decreasing font size to allow seeing as much of the page as with the previous format makes the words themselves difficult to read.
Since the biggest challenge in teaching from a tablet is having only a tiny part of the lesson visible at a time, having that portion made even smaller is not a good trade-off for eye appeal.

Happy with it
The Beauty of the Words of God 5/5
So very thankful for an app that allows me to read and study the scriptures. Well make and very easy to use. Thank you!
Woo hoo! 5/5
A literal library all in my pocket! What more could any aspiring scripture and LDS scholar want??
What is wrong? 3/5
What is wrong with the app?! It won't let me into it! It keeps saying that it's updating when I open it, but once it loads it is a blank page. I updated it and it worked for a little bit. Then it did the same thing as before! How can it be fixed so that I can use it?
By Abyssal Kraken
I love how you can flip through pages.
Love the ability to read and listen depending on which works for me at the time and take notes, highlight and tag. Thank you!
I love all the things I can do in this app. My husband and I use it all the time on our mission. We teach lots of different classes to members. Is it possible for there to be file folders in the bookmarks. I would love to organize by the lessons we are teaching. We divide up each lesson by highlighting it according to the part we each do. I would like to bookmark them in order by topic.
Very informative and helpful 5/5
I love the content and the updates.
Unless I am doing something wrong almost each time I update this app to this iPad I have to reinstall everything.
unless there are major problems it would be good if it was LEFT ALL for sometime now.
If it isn't broken please leave it alone.
Yes all the bells and whistles are all fluff but are really not needed.
Can you add Dyslexia Font to the scriptures? 5/5
I love this app and use it every day, I really love all the new updates, they are amazing! I have a son with dyslexia and both he and I would love it if you could add a dyslexia font to help him read the scriptures better.
After all the bugs were fixed it's awesome! 5/5
The new version was so frustrating at first. All my notes were lost and the chapters skipped around So many bugs and issues. I finally just deleted the app. Then I reinstalled it. All my notes came back!!!! I was pretty happy about that. Over time it has become awesome again. What a great tool. So happy with the program now but not looking forward to another over haul of the program.
Some of the readers sound like they are computer generated. Are they? I have listened to the scriptures for years and now I wish I could find another source. I was hoping the readers would change but I guess they aren't going to.
Video and Bluetooth 4/5
Why do the videos in the General conference section automatically play when I connect to my Bluetooth?
Can't adjust the font size on new iPad
Love the app, but can't view my highlighted notes 1/5
Whenever I try to view my recent notes/annotations/highlights the app crashes, please fix.
If I download the things and go out and back in everything is gone....
Great app 5/5 stars
It's cool yo
Best app ever 5/5
By Gopsel Love
Gospel library is the best way of reading my scriptures and getting closer to the savior I would buy a phone just to have this app
Now with Sepia and Other Themes! 5/5
By Cameron Roy Taylor
Very pleased with the recent updates, especially the sepia color theme.
Fantastic and Full of Features! 5/5
I'm very grateful for this app. It is great to be able to have all of this content on-hand and that the user experience is clean. I love that the marking syncs with my LDS account and that you can make different notes, that was always hard for me to write in the little margin of my scriptures. I definitely recommend this app!
I use it every day 5/5
A great way to read scriptures and all of the other church material. The sync is fabulous, as are the other annotation tools and multiple bookmarks.
One suggestion: could we get an option so that the theme can change based on the time of day? In other words, if the sun has set, it switches to dark theme automatically?
New and much improved 5/5
This new gospel library has better functionality and better resolution as well. Then new way to highlight materials is great too especially when you can highlight the different parts in multiple colors to make certain parts of a favorite quote or scripture stick out.
One suggestion for improvement. When you hit a link and it shows in the sidebar I wish an option was available to highlight the scripture/quote there versus leaving the current position to highlight the scripture/quote.
Perfect in every single way 5/5
Thanks for adding audio download 5/5
I am very excited about the audio download feature. Unfortunately it kept downloading using cellular data and caused me a data overage. Wish there was a way to see ongoing downloads and possibly pause or cancel them.
Overall though amazing app. So glad it's available and free. Thanks!
Great app! 5/5
I love this app, and I have a request. I was recently recommended, that every time I open my phone, I should do something spiritual. So my idea is maybe a widget or button somewhere, that when we push it we get a random verse. Just an idea.
General conference problems 3/5
When I try to scroll back to a talk I listened to, it automatically pushes me to the next talk, even though I'm trying to go back. I tried about half a dozen times and it's doing the same thing.
Yea? Oh YEA !! 5/5
Read the scriptures dogs! It's all hear ! Down load now !
Can't get any of the books to download and open. What happened? 2/5
App now not working! 1/5
Updated, now I have nothing. Please fix, really need this app.
Thanks for the quick fix, all good now!
App crashing 4/5
Normally, this app is great. Recently, however, when I open it, it shows the app title screen, then "updating" screen, then a blank white screen. When I go through the App Store's description page to access "App Support," it takes me to lds.org's page that just describes all the apps, but doesn't seem to have a link directly to support for the app. How can I get help with this issue?
Handbook 1 5/5
Just updated last night. Handbook 1 disappeared. Logged out and in again, restarted, no dice. (Edit follows) Handbook 1 is back again. Must have been a problem on the login? idk.
Continue auto play 1/5
I can only read my scriptures when I listen to them. I wish they would play continually instead of having to hit play after each chapter. My arms don't work and my wife has to keep checking with my phone to see when the chapter is over. Please help fix it.
Typing in search has lag 4/5
While I love the app there's a lag with when typing in a search.
Love the app, with a recommendation 4/5
First, let me say that I love the app. The addition of my linked verses in the footnotes was brilliant. However, in a previous version of the app, I could have the footnotes open and at a glance as I read. With the change of the footnotes to the side, that is no longer an option on the phone. This is still available for the iPad, as the screen is larger.
An idea: with the current setup, there certainly isn't room for both the text and the footnotes when the phone is vertical. However, a horizontal rotation of the phone would provide room enough for both the text and footnotes to be displayed. This would allow the footnotes to be immediately available while reading the text.
Keys to Knowledge 5/5
This makes everything church related, available to you. For free.
I love this app and use it everyday! There is more content than I could ever read watch or listen to in a lifetime! The app is easy to use and has great tools for bookmarking, highlighting, tagging, taking notes and keeps no track of everything that is important.
This latest update is a little glitchy when I'm scrolling up my thumb might pull slightly to the right and then it jumps to a new spot (sometimes even to a new page). I'm sure this will be fixed though as the app is always improving.
Gospel Library is the bomb 4/5
I love the app and it's always always getting better.
I'd love if I could edit the length of a highlight after I've already created it--I can edit everything else about it but that, so I often end up deleting highlights to redo them.
Of course I love the scriptures, but... 4/5
By I Always LOL
There's a problem when I'm flipping between chapters in the Book of Mormon, where it will load all the way at the end of a chapter instead of the beginning, even for chapters I haven't read yet. And it lags fairly often. I hope these bugs get fixed soon. I also personally miss having the option of having the footnotes visible at the same time as the main text - certainly makes understanding the Old Testament easier. Otherwise, a good app with some really good features.
If I had any suggestions, I'd say add 3D touch support and revamp underlining/highlighting. Maybe add everything to its own page in the notebook.
I was starting to prepare a lesson this Sunday and I realized it would be a good idea to add a lesson preparation option to the app. Or even create a whole new app that syncs with this app. Features that would be nice include having a Mclean sleight where the preparer could import parts of talks and order them, the ability to insert thoughts and personal stories, and the ability to import audio sections of conference talks/church videos. This is just an idea. Food for thought.
