Apps the Church has published for Windows

Postby sbradshaw » Thu Jun 09, 2016 10:07 pm

Hi, I'm making a list of all of the apps that have been published by the Church on various platforms, but I'm having trouble finding a lot of information about the Windows apps. Annoyingly, the Windows Store doesn't show any dates or version numbers. The attached image shows the info I have so far after digging through LDSTech, the Windows Store, wiki revisions, Archive.org, etc. I'm a little confused about whether the apps that run on Windows 8.1 are a continuation of the apps that were developed for Windows Phone, or if they're separate apps; etc. Has anyone kept any good records or know a lot about the Windows apps?

I cannot specifically or technically answer your question, but it is my understanding that, due to the similarity of the operating system, some Windows Phone apps also happen to run on Windows 8.1 and later platforms.

I do not believe the Church is specifically developing programs for desktops. From what I have read, the ability of some phone apps to run on some laptops/desktops is just an inadvertent benefit of the way the OS works.
