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:

• 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.

    Wonderful app that allows me to read the scriptures and make notes. I wish people would stop comparing it to the versions available on the other OS's because this version is very functional and still allows for scripture study. THANK YOU!!!

    Nice to have something but very limited edition compared to iOS and Android

    I love this app. But I wish they would provide more support for it and update it Regularly.

    Okay tool. I would like to see page numbers and section headings in the manuals, to be able to follow along in lessons. Also, the content isn't updated nearly enough. The Android version is much better.

    Format is improving. Manuals are finally in paragraphs and left justified. Headings are clear. The only thing missing are page numbers as far as I can tell
  • by User 7/12/2014
    PH RS manual presentation is awkward, and it's placement in the list makes access difficult.
  • by Ryan 7/6/2014
    Has a lot of potential but still too unstable. I would definitely not use this app if teaching or giving a talk..
  • by Zachary 7/6/2014
    When this first came out it was quite good but now it is very dated, IOS and android is so much better. Please update

    This app on the android and ios is spectacular. Unfortunately it seems to be less of a priority for church members who chose to have a Windows phone. It crashes so often, on both my windows phones, it is barely useable for any personal reading, let alone giving a talk or lesson at church. I finally broke down and bought an android tablet for digital scripture reading. A bigger priority needs to be put on this operating systems application.
