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.

    I love having the scriptures and the words of the modern prophets at my fingertips all the time. Please work to make this version of the app as extensive as the Android and iPhone versions. I am especially hopeful that the pause, resume, and respond functionality will be improved/added. Right now, if I'm at work and listening to the Book of Mormon, for example, and a call, text, or email comes in, not only do I have to restart from the beginning of the chapter, but before it will even allow that, I have to go to a different chapter and begin playing it, then go back to the one I was listening to. Otherwise I get an error that audio playback is currently unavailable. Very frustrating.

    I wish you could highlight individual words and not only paragraphs at a time.

    It works but has very bad interface issues its not the good ios and Android versions. Such as you can only highlight one paragraph or verse at a time. This app is only text based so say good by to videos and pictures very unstable and not optimized. Not every thing is there either some manuals are missing for some reason. Finally it's just ugly to look at for some reason something about that pixelated picture of the last supper just looks bad. But it works if you just want scriptures.

    This app has been awesome and very helpful but recently, it stopped saving the things I bookmark. That is very unhelpful.
