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.

    Where is the tab functionality? Everything looks nice, but I like to keep up several different locations (family study, Sunday school, elders quorum).

    Could use music notes if possible and better search options unless I'm using it wrong. Still five stars.

    Superb. It has some bugs but I tend to find bugs in almost any program I use.

    PLEASE FIX THE APP! Everytime I click, it goes back and doesn't open anymore. Reinstalled, got updated, nothing. In a world where we need all the help we can get to stay on the path, we NEED this app.

    Please fix the bookmarks. No new bookmarks are saved, making it impossible to use the app to keep track of scripture reading or weekly lessons in the manual or the visiting teaching message or anything else.

    It's a good app. Thanks for updating with the latest 2015 content. I've noticed the app has problems keeping bookmarks synced when my phone's storage space becomes low.

    Just wanted to let reviewers know that the windows phone gospel library app is written /coded by volunteers in their spare time. I get frustrated too with the problems I have with this app. But I understand know why it has problems and am willing to be more patient with updates and fixes. Thanks for providing us this app!

    This app needs a lot of work. Kills your battery. 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.

    Updated content for 2015?! Teachings of President Ezra Taft Benson as a shortcut!! Yes, please and thank you! I love this app!

    Perfect app. Not so much for a windows phone though.
