App Reviews

  • Disappointing Search Issues

    By Sparky McMuffin
    I’ll leave my original review as it stands. I fixed the search results. When you type a search keyword, the results that pop up are as I stated: hymns, topical guide, and dictionary. However, if you tap on return, the true search completes. This pop up info is what has been introduced with this version. Changing app behavior like this is incredibly confusing. The release notes don’t even address this change in behavior. I find this change in search behavior more complicated and less intuitive than before because the new contextual shortcuts appear to be search results. I can’t be the only person confused by this change. ⁂ I don’t care about the GUI update. Search has either been severely hampered, or it’s broken. I have come to rely on the power of this app to find all references to a keyword in every downloaded document on my device. Now search only shows results for hymns, topical guide, and bible dictionary, or it shows results for articles not downloaded yet, but it shows NO RESULTS for scriptures. This is stepping us back over ten years, which is how long it’s been since I used the Topical Guide to find a scripture. Surely, search isn’t meant to be this useless now?
  • I love this app!

    By Map7746
    I had problems with this app when The new update downloaded to one of my iPads. I finally solved the problem by deleting it then reinstalling again. The problem was that the blue screen wouldn’t go away. After 24 hours of playing with the blue screen is when I removed it and reinstalled, works fine now. One thing I really miss is the clever Mormonads, that were in the New Era years ago, haven’t been added yet. If nothing else they could be used as screen savers for both children and adults on their devices as a reminder of consequences of getting off the path or used during lesson time with the youth or even the adults. Another suggestion would be to develop an app just for the Mormonads themselves. I would also like to see these offered for sale in the LDS bookstores in both 8x11 and 5x7 sizes for people to purchase that can be used in bedrooms or FHE lessons. A postcard size could also be sold individually to send to people as well.
  • Version 5.0

    The new 5.0 version has some nice new features. In particular, I like the enhancements for Conference content. However, the release also removed a feature that I use frequently- the forward arrow button. Once you go back, you can’t use the forward button to return to the page you were just on. It is now a lot more difficult to switch back and forth between different chapters. I do this during lessons at church, or when comparing content, etc. The work around is to use the history on the bookmark menu. However, the history there does not keep your position on the page. So you have to remember where you were and scroll down to where you were. What you used to be able to do with one tap now requires 2-3 taps and scrolling. Another small bug is when linking content the add button doesn’t show up when you highlight content. You have to first tap the page you are on to get the add button to appear, and then select the content. (Don’t be confused by the fact that when you tap the page the verse that you tap changes to a light blue background. If you tap the add button before selecting content, the link will be to the entire chapter instead of the just the verse you tapped.) The add button should appear when you select content without having to tap the page first.
  • Beautiful, moving in the right direction

    By aberrantartist
    The new design of the app is much cleaner and in line with the Church’s overall “design brand”. Very clean and modern with beautiful images and illustrations and good navigation. I think that it would be greatly improved by adding support for the different styluses such as the Google Pixelbook Pen or the Apple Pencil to be able to write notes in the margins like you can on paper scriptures. Also, it would be very helpful to be able to use these styluses in other parts of the app for writing. Lastly some of the content could be structured better as it appears that it is just a digital copy of the physical books. With a digital book there is room to make improvements to the content layout and how it can be used. An example would be Preach My Gospel which could have updated content.
  • Wonderful content, but the “narrators” need to be fixed

    By Dijion801965
    First off, I love the content and quick access. I only have one issue, and it’s with the computer generated narrators, they need to be changed. I listen to the Book of Mormon while commuting, and when I cannot sit down and read. I am not sure why the narrators were changed to synthesized speech but the synthesis is not fluid and lacks proper inflections. Synthesized speech has been shown to reduce a persons ability to recall what was said (Ive noticed this with the new narration), this is due to people being used to normal human speech patterns and inflections, which a computer does not do. Synthesized speech is great for very short messages, not books. Luckily I still have a copy of the original narration from several years ago.
  • Latest update

    By Lhcgayle
    I love the gospel library app, we can listen to the articles in the Ensign while driving or doing other chores. Also we can look up scriptures quickly and reference any of the content we wish to find. However, in the latest update for Apple, (January 17, 2018) all the audio for the January Ensign has been removed except for the conference notebook article. The icon at the top says the audio is downloaded, but the icon for each article does not appear. I have an iPad2 with iOS 9. I have also noticed that some articles in past issues do not have audio for the entire article, there will be some at the beginning and some at the end with the middle of the article not narrated, or some articles that have no audio.
  • New formatting of Gospel Doctrine manuals is a problem

    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.
  • Excellent Reference System

    By Tdscvjhvbklbcdf
    I love having this app to keep all my insights and notes organized with linking options and tagging options. I love to use it and the library is massive, everything I could ever want to look through in regards to LDS topics is there, especially the newest content released by the church, like general conference talks and worldwide devotionals. My one desire is to know if there is a way to sync my notes to different devices? I have an iPhone and an iPad and it would be awesome if we could link the app across the two so I can add things to my notes and tags on both of them. There may be a way to do it all ready, I just don’t know how, but if there is not, that is my one suggestion for the next update ;)
  • Annotations within content are more complicated

    By HalSox33
    In some ways a good and needed upgrade (e.g. being able to highlight all content - well, except for personal annotations, but I'm okay with that) but as far as studying goes, it has gotten too complicated. Now I can only scroll through content or have the annotation sidebar open, not both. On iPad you don't have that problem with the sidebar blocking the content, and I like being able to adjust the size of the sidebar. On iPhone, however, it's not good at all, not being able to see what you're reading and have the footnotes/annotations up at the same time. To me, it seriously hinders effective study. One other note: I do like how it's easier to use different languages interchangeably now, for example in bookmarks, without having to manually switch languages.
  • Suggestion

    By Amanda Latina
    I really like listening to general conference talks while I do busy work or when I am actually at work. This got me thinking. I thought it’d be very nice to have a queue feature. Sometimes, I like going through and listening to talks in a specific order or by a specific person. But If there was a queue feature, then that would be more efficient to simply add talks to a queue rather then exiting out of the section in order to find the next one. It’s a minor idea, but I feel like I wouldn’t be the only one to benefit from this. We could queue songs, hymns, and certain talks in a specific way. It’d be extremely beneficial.
