Yesterday, the Church released its own official iPhone app that’s compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, called Gospel Library (forgive the App Store’s typo “Gospel Lbry”).
I really like it a whole lot. I have tried most of the previously released third-party scripture apps that range from free to somewhat pricey (~$15) that have a whole range of features on my iPod Touch. Gospel Library may seem basic as a 1.0 release but it looks great and has everything I need. Not coincidentally, it looks like the most like the actual Church typeset scriptures. It also does a great job of getting the buttons out of the way, allowing the most screen real estate for just reading pure scripturery goodness.
Another feature I liked is that the newly downloaded app is basically an “empty shelf” which allows you to then download (and later delete) whichever books of scripture you want as well GC reports, and other Church books. There a lot of Church books and manuals already available and the App Store description promises weekly updates to the available library.
I’d love to see how it looks on the iPad.
A great effort from the LDS Tech team.
Check out Gospel Library.
