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.
 
• Japanese*
• Korean
• French
• Italian
• Russian
• Tagalog
• Chinese (Traditional)
• Swedish
• Danish
• Dutch
• Norwegian
• Tongan
• Samoan
• Hungarian
• Mongolian
 
* Support for Ruby annotations is not currently available.
 
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.
Added Fast App Resume.

    Great app!

    In concept it's great, but the developers at the LDS Church have a bias against the windows platform and fail to provide the same attention and quality to this version of LDS Gospel Library that is given to the Android or iCrap versions.

    I like it...

    It's a great app, but the search bar doesn't work, I can't connect my LDS account, as well as my bookmarks and notes always erase!! I want to put my notes in, but it won't work. I also would like it to allow me to make notes regarding an entire chapter instead of just a verse, as well as mark specific words. Besides those, it's a great app!! It works well, and downloads fast. I would also like it if it could show me page numbers and pictures in pamphlets and other books like Preach My Gospel, instead of having to ask what chapter and heading when I was given a page number. :-/ Otherwise, it's a great app! I hope it can be improved even more! :)

    I love the scriptures and read them daily. I love the convinience of having them on my phone. Problem: My notes and bookmarks keep erasing themselves. I have gotten in the habit now of marking everything in my physical set and carrying them around, which defeats the point of this app. Please fix. I love this app, but it needs to work...

    Sorry to say but it will not sync with my web notebook, also when you try to use the notebook feature it errors out. If you could get it to work like IOS and Android it would be a5 star app.
