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

* 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 but needs an update. Talked to developers with the church and they are in the process of a complete overhaul. They've already released a beta version of the new one on Windows 8.1.

    Love the app, I just wish they had the manuals like in the iPhone. But all needed functionalities are available

    Good app for general gospel library information. It is annoying that it keeps selecting things when I am scrolling. Also, I can only highlight or comment and entire verse of scripture. Not as useful as what I have seen people can do on other devices.

    Just deplorable, awful, odd interface, poor effort, frequent crashes, requiring reinstallation due to db corruption. Please update or remove altogether. The church can do better than this.

    Whenever I try to open any of my content, the app creates and closes itself completely.

    My only problem is that the bookmark button isn't working right now for some reason, otherwise great and convenient.

    It's awesome with this app on windows market. Most grateful for this but mine has crashed, when you open, it closes by itself without the contents appearing, no videos are playing and comparing the features of this same app on android market this needs lot of update and the complete features provided by lds Church just like in apple store and android. These will enhance and invite more people towards windows phone. Thanks so much for its presence for windows phone users'
