Will the March 2017 Ensign be added to the gospel library?

I have the March 2017 Ensign on my installation of Gospel Library. What version of Gospel Library are you running (you can see at the bottom of Settings)?

The March 2017 won't load onto my iPad 2. I updated the iOS to 9.3.5 and deleted the app then reinstalled it, although it is being reinstalled from the cloud. All other devices have loaded the March 2017 Ensign

I think you must be running an old version of Gospel Library – if you go to the App Store, you can find the newest version (Gospel Library 4), and it should include the March Ensign. Gospel Library 4 is available for iOS 9 and above. Previous versions of Gospel Library are using an old content channel, that isn't being updated as frequently.

"Previous version of Gospel Library are using an old content channel, that isn't being updated as frequently."

That's really too bad. I reverted back to an older version intentionally because the new version has a horrible (imo) interface that takes more clicks for everything and is much less intuitive than the older version. Also, an error message pops up and never goes away no matter how many times I dismiss it, unless I disconnect from Wi-Fi and mobile.

Classic mistake that far too many organizations make (even the software company I work for): introducing a total rewrite on newer technology (good) that is inferior to the previous version in its functionality and usability (bad).

What's the error message you get?

Among other improvements, the new content format allows you to highlight text in headings, bulleted lists, etc., which isn't possible with the old content format. This was an often-requested feature for many years.
