Verily, update thine app or cast it out. 2/5
By Magad The Great
Seriously, this app could (and should) be a better proselyting tool than it is. The Gospel Library app, which IS updated regularly, can be daunting to prospective readers. Imagine if the missionaries dropped off a few hundred pounds of books on your doorstep - it’s a lot...
This app needs:
- to be iOS 13.0 compliant
- support for new iPhone screen ratios
This app would benefit from:
- 1.25x, 1.50x, and 1.75x playback options.
- match color schemes from Gospel App
Otherwise, it would probably be better to delete this from the App Store. The Book of Mormon deserves a relevant application.
How to listen to the audio 5/5
By granny onine
If you want to listen to the audio go to settings and click on General → Accessibility → Speech then click on speech or spoken contacts and filp on speak select speak screen
Can’t change font size 3/5
Older folks need some flexibility on making words bigger to read them on a device. No option in the app to change size.
It doesn’t work on my iPhone 1/5
I love this app!! It is my favorite Book of Mormon app. It’ does not work On my iPhone anymore. I don’t know what the problem is. Because I have helped so meany people Download the app and use it just fine. And other people that have it, have the same problem as me.
What keeps happening is I use the audio to listen to it. And it only works for 3-8 second and then it stops. The whole app just crashes and freezes so bad that I have to close out of it. And I have updated it and it still doesn’t work.
I really enjoyed when I had it. I LISTEN TO IT EVERY DAY. And I miss it a lot.
Audio portion stopped working. 1/5
Help. After a Apple update I can no longer listen. New phone and I can no longer listen. Traffic!!!
This app has not been updated in 4 years 1/5
This app was amazing! I used it daily to listen to the scriptures on my. Immure to work. Unfortunately it no longer works at all. I can’t even get the text to continue to show up for me to read consistently. Please update this app!!! Having easy, seamless access to the Book of Mormon in this format should be one of the Church’s top priorities as it will put a Book of Mormon in every home faster than just about any other effort. Unfortunately they have not done a single update in 4 years! Please update this app!!!
Playing audio causes the app to freeze. 4/5
By Gregory Hess
I’ve been using this app for nearly a month now with no problems. The audio worked just fine up until I tried to use it again today. Playing the audio just causes the app to freeze. I’ve tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling it to no avail. Hopefully this can be fixed soon.
Quit working 3/5
I used this app so often to listen to the scriptures. But all of a sudden it quit working. It’ll get about 5 seconds into the reading, and then it’ll freeze. I have tried everything from deleting and the reloading the app, turning off my phone and resetting. Nothing is working. I’m assuming this is because I have an iPhone 11 and perhaps the app doesn’t work with that? I would LOVE to continue using the app, so if possible, please update for iPhone 11!
The audio freezes after a few seconds. The app is then unresponsive and also frozen. Uninstalled and reinstalled without correcting problem. Used to work fine prior to IOS update. Hope it can be fixed.
App audio no longer works 1/5
Please update to latest iOS because the audio no longer works
Narration is too quick 1/5
Narration is too quick and stressful
By Note worthy!!!!!
This app of the Book of Mormon has by far the best narrator on line. However due to some recent updates, this app no longer works on my phone.
I hope the developers of this app will consider doing an update
Audio no longer works 1/5
Please fix this app so that the audio will play again. No longer works on iPhone after latest update.
By palermo 444
My app won’t work now so I deleted it and downloaded a new app but it still won’t work. It acts like it loads and at times I hear the first word and then it freezes. I deleted again and reloaded but the same thing occurs. I am using an iPhone 10 and had no problems for several years until now. What to do?
Not working... 1/5
I’ve had this app for some time and not working... frozen 😖😖😖
Great but not getting updated 4/5
This is a great resource because it still has the older (better) English narrations than the new ones that come standard on the Gospel Library app. The only problem is that the narrations seem to cause the app to freeze on the newest iOS (13).
Broke with iOS 13 1/5
By The man12345
Don’t know if I’m the only one but since the new os I can’t use it. Stops a second or two in, freezes, and won’t play
Nice for bilinguals 4/5
I use this primarily to be able to listen and read in Spanish while I use the Gospel Library app for my study in English!!
I would love it if this app supported iOS 13’s dark mode. It would also be helpful to download an entire book at a time, like Moroni, or 1 Nephi.
Share link 5/5
By Chris St. Nick
Please consider adding a share link to the app. This could be a useful feature to share the Book of Mormon with others. I want to share this with a person I met today that has cancer and didn’t have a hard copy with me. Just a thought. Thank you
Fix the bugs!! 2/5
The audio restarts the book when I close the App. I stopped reading for the day and when I returned it started the book all over from the beginning. It would be nice if the audio would pick up from where I left off.
Always starts at the beginning 2/5
By Bob booob
I deleted this app from my phone because every time I opened the app it would go back to the beginning. Try as I might I could never get it to skip to the chapter I was on and begin reading there. After reading the reviews it looks as if this is still a problem. I’m super disappointed.
Audio book compatibility is remarkable
Not enough speed settings 4/5
I was hoping to have this as a dedicated app for Book of Mormon listening but the speed settings need to match the Library app. It seems strange that they don’t. Clearly the apps were made by two different teams.
Otherwise it works as I expect.
Audiobook language 3/5
By tan tans
I really want to learn Italian and I love learning it from THE SOURCE. The problem is that there aren’t a lot of variety of audio language options in this app. I am really disappointed. :(
Can you please hire people to do the audio for the different languages. Thanks
Great app, please fix the bugs 5/5
Dear Church programmers,
Please fix this app! It’s blank on my phone and doesn’t work at all. 3 years is a long time for no updates!
Can’t wait for the audio in German! 5/5
I was so excited to see that this app has audio available for several languages beyond English. I’m holding out hope that they’ll also release this in German so I can listen to the Book of Mormon in German as well.
I love this book. It changed my life, and is changing my family’s life as well. It is true.
Apple IOS 4/5
The iPhone app is not as good as some other product developers (Android etc.)-I’m not sure if it’s across all IOS devices but iPhone definitely
Please add save or bookmark feature 3/5
I like listening to the audio scriptures, but it is so annoying that the app doesn’t save your spot or allow bookmarking where you left off for the audio. It starts right back at the beginning every morning and I have to hunt for where I left off. It would be a great app otherwise.
Excellent way to share 5/5
The Book of Mormon changed my life. It’s great to have an easy way to share that with so many people!
I would love for there to be a highlight feature with this app. Is there one available here?
I would like to be able to highlight in this app. I was hope to use this to follow the prophet and highlight all the references to our savior.
Please and the capability to the app.
Wonderful App and powerful tool 5/5
This is a wonderful app, with great inspired support of the Bible. This testimony of Jesus Christ is a wonderful addition to anyone wanting to learn of Christ and how to be more Christlike.
It starts over 5/5
I Love the reader, but every time I go back to listen to the next chapter, it starts back at the title page and then introduction. I have to scan ahead to the end of what he’s saying then go and re-input the chapter I’m on. If I have to stop in the middle of a chapter, it doesn’t save my spot. I switched to this version because when my other app updated, it switched to a different reader that I can’t handle listening to. It almost made me cry! (Ok, I teared up). I was so thankful to find the good reader here!
Love the book but... 4/5
The only issue I had with this app was every time I went back to continue where I left off, the narration started over at the very beginning. It took several tries to get it to start where I left off. Can this be fixed??
Audiobook features 4/5
I was hoping to use this app to listen to the Book of Mormon like an audiobook. Two important features need work before this will be useful. I wonder if any of the app developers are paying attention to these reviews...
Firstly, there are only three play speeds: 1x, 2x, and 3x. 1x is too slow. 2x and 3x are too fast. Most audiobook apps allow for 1.25x, 1.5x, and 1.75x.
Secondly, bookmarking. If I have to stop listening for awhile and the app gets closed, my place is lost the next time I open it. Would be nice if the app would remember where I left off, or at least allowed me to place bookmarks.
Learn about Jesus Christ 5/5
The Book of Mormon is amazing! It’s similar to the Bible except it’s the testimonies, prophecies and teaching about Jesus Christ from his prophets on the American continent. It even has a section that details Christ’s visit to the people on the American continent after he was resurrected from his death and crucifixion that happens in the Bible. This book goes along with the Bible and testifies that Christ is the Savior for all people, doesn’t matter the color of our skin or our race. If we follow his teachings found in the Book of Mormon we will find lasting happiness.
Jumps to the beginning 1/5
This really needs to be fixed. I'll open the app to continue where I was reading, then I'll arrow to the next chapter and it jumps back to the beginning. This has been happening for years. Please fix it.
This book is so good! 5/5
By Get this app 🇬🇧
When my friend suggested that I should read this book at first I was hesitant but after reading it I had a desire to know more. This book’s contents just make sense and I can tell that this book was especially made for our day and age. This app is not a scam, there is no ads or money traps. Read it and you might be surprised to find the level and truth and peace you receive.
The most accurate and real history of Gods prophets 5/5
The Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is real! :) This book has real history of prophets of God. Read it, study it, pray about it. You’ll know I’m right!
Needs book mark 4/5
While this is a fantastic compilation and has great flexibility due to the additional languages, it needs a way to book mark the pages as the reader moves through the book. For the first time reader it is a must. It would add tremendously to the usefulness of this app.!!!
Very buggy 2/5
Constantly goes back to the Introduction after I push the arrow to go to the next chapter. Usually happens when I open the app to start reading where I left off; I’ll then get to the end of the chapter, push the arrow, and it will zoom me back to the intro.
Wonderful But One Flaw 4/5
By Kirk Lester UT
I love this app for many reasons. It is simple and easy to use, I love the audio that is available. I wish that I could take a Notes in the app. Many of my investigators on my mission wish that they could take notes in the app as well. It would also be nice if you could in large the font size. Great work though!
Book of Mormon 5/5
I’m only buying this because of the musical. Lol.
By Cha Cha Blah Blah Moo Moo
Love it! i like all the teachings on helpin out the poor and needy
Great but needs a little tweaking 4/5
Hello this review is just for the developers. I live the experience but the audio every time I open back to where I was starts back from the very beginning. On re-open of the app if I click the next arrow on the bottom right it jumps back to the introduction too. Not sure what’s causing this but I’d love to see that fixed if possible.
Thank you again for making this I use it every day!
Wonderful book 3/5
By Claremont lds
I just wish that I could make the print larger. I’m happy to use the voice reading but would enjoy it more if I could enlarge the print. Hopefully this is an easy fix.
I couldn’t figure out how to highlight selected text. The text does seem to follow the current version.
Most true book on the earth 5/5
This is the most true book on the earth today. I love it so much. The only problem with the app itself is that the audio starts at the beginning of the Book of Mormon from any chapter. Other than that it is amazing! I sent it to my non-member friends and told them about it and they started reading it!
No highlight? Notes?? 3/5
By Krystal Howe
So excited about this app but please make it so you can highlight and add notes! It isn't terrible but that would be so helpful.
