Developers have made it easier than ever to study and learn the 100 seminary scripture mastery passages, the Articles of Faith, and other gospel content. The newest update to the Scripture Mastery mobile apps make this possible by allowing users to select any content in Gospel Library app and post it to the Scripture Mastery App for review and memorization.

This new upgrade is in English, but it is anticipated that the Scripture Mastery App  will soon be available in 10 languages. With content in Gospel Library app in over a hundred languages, you can still import passages in a different language and use self-created hints and other app features.

Importing content is fairly simple, but you’ll need to know a few things about the process that are not in any onboard help files:

It’s happening! Plans and preparation are coming to fruition for the 2015 LDSTech Conference on October 15. It’s not too late to make your own plans to attend. The 2015 schedule is set and the day-long conference will be held at the Institute of Religion Building on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City, USA. It is free and everyone is invited regardless of technological skill level.

Last year’s conference had 500 attendees and survey evaluations from 2014 said repeatedly, “First time attendee…have enjoyed learning and look forward to more,” or “This is my first time, but not my last,” or “Thank you, plan to come again.” The presenters for 2015 are as diverse and the topics as relevant for this year’s attendees, and a formidable number of LDS Apps and Games are “in the works.”

If this is your first opportunity to participate, you’ll not want to pass up a chance to brush shoulders with technology experts, network with like-minded tech enthusiasts, and enjoy free breakfast and lunch while making new friends and learning new skills to take back home and share with friends and family.

Don’t wait another day to register. The 2015 LDSTech Conference will be something to remember!

Have you noticed how many LDS apps are built to work together to make using them very intuitive and natural?

This is “interoperability.” Interoperability refers to a product or system (usually a computer program), that has the ability to work with other products or systems without restricted access or extra implementation steps on the part of a user.

While the term seems a bit technical, the results are non-technical so you won’t have to think about what’s happening in the background when using a software program.

Windows users have reason to celebrate a new release for Gospel Library (GLW) for their phones. The new release is much like the tablet version, with a full complement of rich content and enviable features on par or better than peer-apps for the iOS and Android platforms.

Developers for this all-volunteer project have come closer than ever to a universal app for Windows on a phone. The mobile form-factor has the expected features desktop users have come to enjoy and a few more besides. Version 2.15.8.150 is now available in the Windows store, and reviews are for the most part very positive.

If your Windows phone is preconfigured to auto-update, the next time you open your GLW phone app, you’ll experience a brand new interface, one that will be familiar yet enticingly fresh and appealing. If you have been using the beta version, the new Windows release can be downloaded and co-exist on the same device.
