LDS Tools has long been the go-to app for member-to-member contacts, viewing calendar events, and locating meetinghouses. A recent update adds new functionality and features for iOS and Android platforms that make the app even more versatile for members and leaders. This new functionality includes more membership data and more reports from Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) that let users drill down to specifics and use in-line filters.

Developers are working to create an intuitive experience by taking advantage of platform-specific features and connections to companion apps like LDS Maps that deliver useful information. The value is enhanced when members take time to upload their photos and set visibility settings for the directory to allow other members in their ward and stake to see their contact information.

Meetinghouse Webcast is the official solution for local units of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to broadcast meetings over the Internet to other locations. Webcast technology provides an alternative to travel for stake conferences, regional conferences, firesides, and training meetings.

In February 2009, the Church released the Meetinghouse Webcast Communicator. The Communicator includes the hardware and software needed to encode and send a webcast stream. To meet the needs of those with custom hardware configurations, the Church is now beta testing a software-only solution for use on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

To learn more, please visit the Meetinghouse Webcast Software Beta page.
