Feature Request: Music/Lyrics View (Windows 8)

Postby ToManyLetters » Thu Jul 25, 2013 7:14 pm

One feature I'd like to see in the Windows 8 version of the LDS Gospel Library app would completely absorb the functionality of the separate LDS Music app on iOS. Essentially, the content sections for the Hymnal and Children's Songbook would be able to flip back and forth to a "Lyrics" (current implementation) and "Music" (full sheet music, where possible) view. Language swapping would also be a nifty feature in this particular aspect of the app.

Does Windows 8 have a native LDS Music app – or is there any way to currently see the sheet music?

Great job with all your mock-ups, by the way.

There is no official, native "LDS Music" app for Windows 8. Some developers have provided their solutions, but the only "official" way to view the hymns is via the recently-released Gospel Library app (lyrics only) or via PDF downloads from LDS.org.

The idea with merging it in would be to reduce the number of separate apps needed to be installed to fulfil Church-related needs--and combined with the ability to pin the hymns or Children's Songbook, would serve that same function for those who like it separate anyway.

Great job with all your mock-ups, by the way.


Thanks.
