New for 2014, the LDSTech-sponsored Gospel App & Game Development Contest culminates at the LDSTech Conference 2014.

LDSTech encourages developers of all levels and abilities to join in this contest to Create*Something*Worthy. From mazes to "where are we?" to "scripture golf", if you have an idea for a gospel or Church related software application, now is the time to make it happen!

Categories and awards

Apps and Games may be developed for Apple, Android, Windows, or online platforms in the following categories:
    • Primary
    • Youth
    • Family

Awards, prizes, and recognition will be offered for each category, plus additional awards for teen, senior, and first time creators. And of course, there's the personal satisfaction you'll receive from your accomplishment!

Starter ideas

Since the gospel is infinite, so are the possibilities for gospel-related applications and games. See the idea and wish list page for specific starter ideas (or to add ideas for apps you'd like to see).

  • Be creative!
  • Find ideas from existing popular apps and improve them -- "create something worthy".
  • What kinds of games and apps could help you, your children, your grandchildren, or others:
    • have gospel-oriented fun?
    • strengthen testimonies?
    • develop personally?
    • enjoy graphic-violence-free leisure and play time?
    • serve more effectively?
    • connect with gospel and Church themes rather than worldly themes?
