LDS Gospel Library is an official application of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

Download and study the scriptures, General Conference talks, and many other gospel instruction materials published by the Church (Gospel Principles, Hymns, Preach My Gospel, magazines, and curriculum resources).  Listen to audio recordings of the scriptures, General Conference talks, and other materials.

LDS Gospel Library allows you to search, bookmark, annotate, and highlight the texts (currently, annotations are limited to supporting content).

Version 1.11 prepares for an upcoming change in LDS.org study notebook synchronization.
Today we announce a language pack update to Gospel Library. This update provides content in fifteen new languages, listed below. Additionally, a few bugs have been fixed. See below.

Although the app user interface is still in English only, we hope that users familiar with the newly available languages will make use of their availability.
 
New Languages:
In addition to the existing five languages (English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, and Finnish), a further fifteen languages have been added. We hope this update will help more users access the blessing of using Gospel Library in their native language.

Additional updates:
In addition to new languages, this update includes: 
 
• Home screen shortcuts now feature 2014 content.
• Lock screen backgrounds: you can now set your phone’s lock screen to feature Gospel-centered content.
• Live tile support: see featured scriptures from the app’s scripture pane from your Start screen
• Support for the full-sized (wide) tile (WP 8, 8.1)
 
Bugs that have been fixed:
• Severe battery drain bug that caused phones to grow uncomfortably hot
• Encoded characters in folder names
• Titles shown during chapter navigation, in the breadcrumbs bar, and in bookmarks to remove duplicated book names 
• Light theme bugs with the settings and language pages
• Fixed a bug which would cause the app to crash if the user moved between an introductory page and the main text of the Scriptures.
• Formatting of many pieces of content throughout the app. In order for this change to take effect, you will need to first remove any affected old content by pressing and holding on its name, tapping ‘remove’, and re-downloading it.

    Great app, sometimes bugy and mostly text, no pic in manuals

    I have found more recently that this app has become more disappointing. I have downloaded this app and previous WP7 and WP8 phones and have had very few problems with it. In fact, up until 3 months ago my problems with the app were more about aesthetics as opposed to functionality. I would like to be able to highlight individual phrases or use a wider variety of colors when highlighting. I hope that those things will in future versions. I would like the content to be updated more frequently. My biggest problem is that starting a few months ago, the app continually crashes. On three different occasions now, I have not been able to even open the app. I have had to uninstall it and then reinstall it again. It has become very frustrating. I have been on deployment and my phone is what I use to do my scripture reading. I have had limited access to the internet as well, so I have gone weeks without reading. Please fix this soon!

    UI is hard to use. Limited functionally compared to iOS, and Android. Please make it so the app remembers where I left off reading, instead of resetting each time I open the app.

    Has the content but isn't as clean or nice as the other church apps on other devices. Sometimes prevents the user from marking scripts in the app.
  • by Adam 2/13/2015
    It has access to all of the available Church content, which is nice. Unfortunately, it isn't very stable. At times it will randomly delete bookmarks, and prevent the user from making new ones. As far as content issues, it doesn't have page numbers which makes using the manuals difficult during class. Final issue, single words or phrases can't be highlighted. So, if you want to highlight, or make a note, it has to be the entire verse. Other OS versions don't appear to have these issues.

    Works, but not on par with other church apps
