Many members use Gospel Library for Windows (GLW) for reading, reference, and multimedia activities, hesitating to do more because they have not yet upgraded to Windows 8.1, and because Windows apps formerly did not have all the features of iOS and Android. With the recent release of GLW, the gap is closing. GLW now shares the same iconography and navigation features as other platforms, and makes use of some very helpful tools native only to Windows environments.

According to Jim Byer, one of the coders for the project, “Gospel Library is meant to be used every day for deep gospel study, inspiration, reference, and teaching.” He is one of over 300 volunteers who are part of a global effort to develop Gospel Library for Windows. He and others do coding, testing, debugging, and building of user interfaces, capitalizing on developments that are bringing Windows mobile and desktop applications closer together.
