LDS.org leader applications on android

Postby jeffs6 » Sun Apr 21, 2013 3:32 pm

Why can't I run leader applications, like Temple Entry, on my android tablet? It doesn't give an error, it just doesn't do anything at all.

The Temple Entry System is a web application, so it just runs in a web browser just like any other web page. I've never heard of an Android application for TES. I'm guessing you are accessing that web site using the built-in Android browser (if not, please specify which browser you are using).

I can access the TES site just fine on my Android phone, using the built-in browser.

Are you saying that you don't even see the sign-in page, or that after you enter your LDS Account user name and password, that is when you don't get any response?

I don't have access to TES to test it, but the problem could be something in your browser settings - like something blocking pop-up, Java Script, etc.

I have the same experience. I can access Temple Entry System on my Android phone by accessing lds.org through the web browser, but cannot access Temple Entry System on my Android tablet by accessing lds.org through web browser.

I also cannot do any of the Leadership functions on my tablet (stake statistics, quarterly report, lists, etc.) with the exception of member look-up.

I have found that using the Chrome browser does not work on my android devices (S3 and Nexus7) but that dolphin browser does work. I've just switched to Dolphin to run the tools.

This is begining to sound like the old Calendar No Longer Works on Android Browser thread. That did eventually get fixed in a update.

Thanks for the responses. I'm still having the issue with chrome, including stake statistics, reports, etc. I switched to dolphin as suggested and it works great.

Firefox for Android works as well.
