What do you mean by "priesthood ordinance app"? Are you looking for a tool that will show leaders what ordinances a particular member has received? If so, there is no such mobile application at this point.

Are you asking about version 2.2? I don't know of any date. The wiki page doesn't list a date.

Handbook 2 is on the Gospel Library app, and it has a section on priesthood ordinances.

I don't think it was ever published by the church. It sounds like something a member learning how to develop might do.

If you've got a reader app that contains "Duties and Blessings of The Priesthood B" you can find what you're looking for in Lesson 5.

The approved guidelines are in Chapter 20 of Handbook 2 (JamesAnderson provided the link upthread). There is no official mobile app that does this (except for Gospel Library, which includes Handbook 2, of course). I'd be wary of unofficial apps for information like this.

The Family Guidebook also has a section on Priesthood Ordinances and Blessings.

Well silly me. I actually have it on my phone, but I can't find it in Google Play (the app store) at all. But it does look like you can side load it from here.

The description of the app found at that link is certainly odd -- it looks like it was written by a nonmember, or went through a poor electronic translation process from some other language into English.

It does, but from everything I see, it seems to be the same app I have. I don't remember where I got it. Most likely it was from here or the LDSOSS group. I don't think I would have loaded it just because it was in the market (at the time).

Comparing some of the text, it doesn't exactly match what I find in the manual. The differences I saw were minor, but it does raise a question about source of the information and if it's current. Given that, I can't recommend it unless the text can be confirmed.

There was an app that defined the words and purpose of ordinances. I have it on my phone having transferred it from a previous phone.
I searched for it recently and could not find it so assume it has been taken down.
