Updates to the Gospel Library App PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tom Johnson   
Friday, 09 December 2011

Gospel Library provides a comprehensive collection of Church material on your mobile device, including scriptures, conference addresses, magazines, manuals, and even videos. Recently the Gospel Library app for iOS has been updated with three new features:

  • Improved media playback options
  • Study Notebook integration
  • LDS Music integration

Improved Media Playback Options

You can now listen to audio narrations for English scriptures, general conference addresses, magazines, and some lesson material. You can also watch videos of general conference addresses and other material. When you’re viewing content with media playback options, a play button appears enabled in the lower-right corner of the app.

When you click the Play button for conference addresses, you’re prompted with either video or audio media options.

Media Playback Integration

If you play the audio, the play button changes states to indicate the audio is playing. If you choose the video option, the video stream plays.Media Playback Integration

Overall, the media playback gives you more options to consume the content, rather than just reading. 

Note that the inclusion of audio and video with Gospel Library requires the presence of media links in the content. These media links were not included in previous content downloads, so to play the audio or video, you must either delete and re-install the library content (a somewhat tedious process), or you must delete and re-install the Gospel Library app (the preferred method).

Before you delete the app, make sure any notes you added have been synchronized with your LDS Account (otherwise they will be lost when you delete the app).

To delete and re-install the Gospel Library app:

  1. Start Gospel Library.
  2. Back up any notes by going to Settings > Account Settings. Click Sync Now. Wait until the Pending Changes number becomes zero.
  3. Tap the iPhone’s Home button to exit the app.
  4. Tap and hold the Gospel Library app icon until the icon wiggles and shows an X.
  5. Tap the X.
  6. Press the iPhone’s Home button to return to the normal mode.
  7. Open to the App Store and search for LDS Gospel Library.
  8. Install the app. Then start it.
  9. Tap Manage Library.
  10. Tap the content you want to download.
  11. Tap the green download arrow to download the content.

When you re-download the latest content to the Library, the new content will contain media links to play audio and video. (Note that the audio or video itself does not download locally but rather streams from a Church server; you must have either WiFi or a cellular connection to play the media).

Study Notebook Integration

My Study Notebook is now accessible from within the iOS Gospel Library app. Previously, notes synchronized between the two apps, but now you can access My Study Notebook directly within the Gospel Library interface, rather than just from LDS.org. A Notebook button appears in the upper-left corner of the Gospel Library app home screen.

Notebook Integration

This Notebook view shows you content from My Study Notebook. These items include the following:

  • Marks: Passages you highlighted.
  • Notes: Passages you annotated.
  • Tags: Passages you have tagged.
  • Links: Passages you have linked.
  • Documents: Documents help you collect and organize your notes for talks, lessons, and topical study.

Probably the most common features are tags and documents. When you tag passages with a keyword, such as millennium, all passages with that same tag appear in a list.

You can add passages to a document by tapping and holding a verse, and then tapping Send.

LDS Music Integration

The iOS Gospel Library app also integrates with LDS Music. When you view a song from the Hymnbook or Children’s Songbook, a link labeled Open in LDS Music link appears at the top of the screen. When you click the link, the song opens in LDS Music. LDS Music shows sheet music and plays audio.

LDS Music Integration

In the image above, the left screen is from Gospel Library. When you click Open in LDS Music, the hymn opens in LDS Music. When you finish the song, the Return to Gospel Library link takes you back to Gospel Library.

Note that if you don’t have LDS Music installed, when you click Open in LDS Music, you will be invited to install it.

Roadmap

Currently these new features are only available for the iOS version of Gospel Library. Eventually the features will be available for the other platforms as well.

Any idea when these features, especially the study notebook, will be available on the android app?
 
 
# Jason Hyer 2011-12-09 13:52
The next update of Gospel Library for Android should be available within a couple of weeks and it will include integration with the study notebook on LDS.org. You will be able to sync highlights, notes and bookmarks with lds.org. Other features will become available in future releases.
 
 
# Nathan Dickamore 2011-12-09 14:07
The next release of Gospel Library for Android will not have Study Notebook in it similar to the iOS version here. What Jason is referring to is we will sync our annotation from the Android device to LDS.org where you will be able to use the Study Notebook. Our plans are currently to have another release in about three-five months that does have Study Notebook in it.

# Bart 2011-12-12 19:57
since I downloaded the update, my 3g running on 4.2.1 no longer works -- it displays all the characters in a given verse (or sentence in the manuals or conference talks) on one line, leaving an empty space where the content ought to be displayed.

I have deleted and re-downloaded the app several times.

any ideas on what I can do to fix it?

The latest update also did not work properly on my iPod touch. (text lines printed on top of each other) I deleted it and downgraded to the previous version which was still on my desktop.

It would be helpful if the user was able to select the desired version to install.

I observed the same problem and then realized that, for some reason, the title page of the Book of Mormon doesn't play back. If you're starting there, try 1st Nephi Chapter 1 (or another chapter) and see if that works for you.

I was able to download the update that fixed the text problem on my Touch device, but now I can't add any content larger than 1 MB (i.e. Old Testament, Topical Guide, etc.). Items under 1 MB load fine, but anything over that causes the program to crash before it is successfully added to the Library.

Which device are you using? I don't know about Android tablets, but there are some shortcuts on the iPad to switch between apps REALLY fast. To enable this feature on the iPad go to Settings -> General -> Multitasking Gestures.

Once you've switched that to "ON" you can swipe up on the screen with 4 fingers to show the multitasking bar. Or you can simply swipe to the left or right with 4 fingers to move between apps. It's great!

I hope that helps.

Sync between devices and the web should be working. It sounds like you have out of date content on the iPhone. If you turn on annotation sync to back up then delete your scripture content then download again through manage library you'll see a play button.

First make sure you are connected to a network. Audio files are downloaded upon play. If that doesn't work then go into Settings on Gospel Library, scroll down to the bottom and tap Support, then send an 'Request Help' email to the iPad support team. Report this issue there. I hope this helps.

On the notebook feature. I cannot figure out how to just look at one notebook. I'm trying to use this to put together my lessons for Gospel Doctrine. Without the ability to pull up just the notebook for that particular lesson it's a problem. Right now I see Notebook, All, and then all the items in the entire notebook. Not the subbook. Thanks!

# Steve Evans 2012-11-12 10:14
I'm wondering why I can highlight some things but not others in the Gospel Doctrine Teacher's Manual for the Book of Mormon manual. It seems that I can highlight the paragraphs that say things like "discuss such and such a chapter and encourage discussion, etc", but not the actual meat of the lesson. I've found highlighting lesson manuals in other apps to be a very quick and easy way to prepare a lesson. Is there a better mechanism in the app to prepare a lesson? I know I can paste content into a notebook which seems ok, but there is no highlighting of notebook content. I use difference color highlighting to indicate things I plan to do or read, versus things I want the students to read, and areas to expand upon if there is time but which can be left out if short on time, etc.

Are there plans to allow highlighting within all areas of the manuals or highlighting within the notebooks?

Thanks for a great look app!
 
 
# Nathan Dickamore 2012-11-12 11:13
Quoting Steve Evans:

The short answer is yes. The long answer involves a lengthy explanation that details how we don't have identifiers on much of the content and in order to add these identifiers we have to have a method in place that will convert from old to new identifiers so we do not lose any or your annotations (highlights, etc). Not sure when this will be completed but we are praying it will be in 2013.

This is unusual but could be caused by a corrupt database. To fix this uninstall the application and then delete the gospel-library folder on the sdcard using a tool like Astro File Manager. Open Astro File Manager and select 'My Files', then select folders. Scroll down until you see gospel-library. Long press this until the option to delete appears. Then reinstall the application. Unfortunately you will have to download the content again and log in for sync as well. Sorry for the problem this has caused you!

Absolutely! It is just taking us longer than expected because with how rich the content is with inline videos, mp3's, and pdf's we wanted to make sure we could support it all. We should have January's curriculum available before January, but it may require an application update for you to make full use of it. Then you will see the following months trickle in.

Right now there are two things blocking us from releasing Mandarin Chinese on Android and iOS. One is that I don't have content in a format I can push out. The second is that neither Android or iOS support the Mandarin character set by default. So we are still investigating the best way to support Mandarin when it is in a format we can push out. This is at least several months out in priority for us. Sorry about any inconvenience this may cause.

Then, I find the item I want (Manuals > Teachings of the Presidents > Lorenzo Snow) and click to download. This results in the app closing regardless of whether I chose the single item or "Download all".

Not sure. I would go through the support option on the application for the iPad.

My bookmarks are acting strange now on my iPad mini. It will allow new bookmarks in the scriptures and the Teachings of the Presidents manual, but not the current Sunday School manual.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for the reminder. I'll have them done today for the iOS video catalog.

I am not able to find the "Come follow me" curriculum for February and following months. I was able to pull up January under Youth: Come, Follow Me, Sunday School. Is there another place I should look?

What platform (iOS, or Android)? I am able to load the content on either just fine.

I am using the Android app and when I tried to download the latest magazines, no magazines are available for 2013 yet. Will this be fixed soon?

Make sure you have the latest Gospel Library app (version 2.4.1) and network connectivity then tap on the Refresh button (two arrows in a circle pattern) in the menu when at the home page. Select 'Refresh Catalog' then look in the magazines folder again. All available magazines for 2013 should be listed. March should even be added sometime this week. ;-)

I love the gospel library app! I use it all the time for teaching the Young Women in my ward. I've been trying to put the finishing touches to my lesson for tomorrow and three times my iPad screen went blank when I was trying to download Ensign articles. I cannot do anything to get rid of the black screen except to uninstall the app and reinstall it again. (This is how it happens: I have minimized the first window and added a second or third so I don't lose my place on the lesson I was working on. Then I try to download the Ensign article, and the screen goes black.) Any suggestions?

I deleted and re-installed the application today, hoping that I could have the videos as explained in the Improved Playback Media Options section above but in Manage library, the video section is still empty.
Any idea about the reason?

Thanks for this great app. I use it everyday, very useful!

I would recommend submitting this through the app by emailing support. You can do this under Settings then scroll down to Support. Tap on Email Support and then send an email.

Have the same problem. One on screen tag says "catalog up to date". Then another one flashing saying "problem updating catalog. Try again later." Even after reinstalling. No solution yet.

We are sorry about this. There is a new version that should be available within a week or two that fixes this issue.

# Jon Bittner 2013-05-17 18:39
Could you please add the ability, when searching a key-word, to see all of the scriptures containing the word in order (Genesis, exodus, etc.). I like to do in-depth study, but the current search only lists a very few scriptures which are listed by category, whatever that means. I end up using a separate Bible app, but that doesn't help with the rest of the LDS cannon. Thank you for all of your efforts.

I would love to be able to have a favorites folder kind of like the book mark in this app. i have many articles that i have read that i would like to remember but not have a book mark for each one. if there were a little star to favorite an article or chapter or talk. i know it would be a great addition or everyone. both online studying and for the application.

There is a project now to get a native Windows 8 Gospel Library application. I don't know the release schedule. It is being worked on though.
 
 
# Kris Tanner 2014-01-18 14:08
Any update on when traditional and/or simplified chinese versions of the Old and New Testaments will be available? We were attending Gospel Doctrine class in Taipei 2 weeks ago and I was surprised to see that there was no Chinese translation of the Old Testament available in the Android app.

Unfortunately we lost some of the key players for the content for Windows 8 to another company. There are a few volunteers working on it, hopefully there will be content soon. I am not sure if there are any plans to update the application itself.
 
 
# Tim 金龙Λ̊™ Riker 2014-01-21 12:24
There is a project to build a new Gospel Library application for Windows 8.x underway. The team is looking for more developers to participate. There is no official word on a potential ship date.

installed Gospel LIbary 3 on my iPad running iOS 7.0.4 but app would only open title page. So I deleted app and tried reinstalling. Now I can't see app on iPad device even though it says it's there in my settings and when I try to reinstall from apple app (says it's open). How do I fix this?
 
 
# Danny Wells 2014-02-22 10:57
Since the new update on the Gospel Library through Google Play the program gets hung up daily causing me to have to shut down and reboot every time I read the scriptures. Most frustrating. How does one get back to the previous version, which was much easier to navigate and use? Sometimes less is more, especially when you want to study scriptures efficiently.
 
 
# Vaughn Jay Easthope 2014-04-20 09:51
Can anyone tell me when there will be a LDS Hymnbook (lyrics and score) available for windows 8.1? The one in the LDS gospel library is lyrics only.
 
 
# Jim Byer 2014-04-21 07:53
A team of volunteers is working on a complete rewrite of the existing version of Gospel Library for Windows and Windows Phone and we hope to see it in the near future. It is a large effort and will require some time. Please pray for their success as they work to bring this new edition forward.
 
 
# Virginia Ewart 2014-08-05 06:24
The audio was available yesterday on my iphone and today when I opened it that option was gone!! AHHHH! Help please
 
 
# Scott Thurman Smith 2014-08-05 11:15
The audio is accessed from the Related content area and should be there. Try force quitting the app not just putting it in the background. To force quit the app in iOS7, double tap the home button. Scroll the apps left or right until Gospel Library appears. Swipe the page up from the bottom until it disappears to force quit the app. Tap the home button again to return to the home page and then start Gospel Library.
 
 
# Tim 金龙Λ̊™ Riker 2014-08-05 11:30
Not all content has audio. Try checking something like the Book of Mormon or General Conference and see if the playback option works there.
 
 
# Mike Lantz 2014-09-19 09:04
Is there anyway to start the highlighting of scriptures all over again (in other words, remove the current highlights and start over with a blank slate)?

I wish to read them highlighting all the principles and doctrines the second time.

Thanks
 
 
# Tim 金龙Λ̊™ Riker 2014-09-19 10:07
It might be easier to do something like this on the web version.

# Johnny Roy Cutright 2014-09-23 14:17
I have an issue where when listening to the audio of the scriptures and the phone goes back into lock (you have to enter pass code) the content will no longer move to the next chapter in the scripture until i log back into the phone. Is there a setting some place to fix this. It used to work fine.
