For example, as of today you can only view annotations (not create them); and you can't view or create bookmarks.


This would be a great candidate for a PWA. Then you could add a local cache so that it works offline.

I wonder if we might have more room for this possibility due to the fact that the recent Apple WWDC 2018 conference talked about porting iOS apps over to MacOS. It sounds like Apple is automating some part of the process to make the transition much easier. If so, I wonder if we can get the iOS app of Gospel Library working on MacOS. Apple is supposed to release more information about this next year, however, they are already working on the process by porting over their default news, stocks, home, and voice memos apps in Mojave.

It's definitely something to be excited about! We'll see how much work and maintenance that will require when Apple puts out more information, and if it pans out for Gospel Library.

I love the Gospel Library App - please please would you make the Gospel Library app for mac computers - it is so time consuming to try to find things using the LDS website. Why is this so? Surely if you want investigators to use the church website it needs to be as easy and quick to find things as on a mobile device.

With WWDC 19 now complete, Apple announced further developments with Project Catalyst which deals with porting iOS apps over to MacOS. As mentioned before, Apple has automated the process and last year they did this with a few of their existing iOS apps like news, stocks, home, and voice memos.

Well, now Apple has released this opportunity to 3rd party developers which means we are now getting the tools from Apple with MacOS Catalina to allow for the Gospel Library to be ported over.

Are there now discussions on doing this now that Apple is releasing details for the porting process?
