  3. Bookmark Groups

    It would be great if I could group or categorize my bookmarks. I could have a group of bookmarks for the lesson I'm working on and a separate group for scriptures I've memorized, etc. It would make it easier to look for the bookmark I want in a long list.

    We have added bookmark groups. However, they are in a rudimentary fashion at the moment. The further user feedback we have received has determined we need a new look that allows groups to act more like a tree expanding only those groups you want to see at the moment. We are working on that.

  4. Lock Screen Feature

    Make lds gospel library available as a lock screen similar to where bing cycles through pictures of the day, you could do temples of the day

  5. Disable/Lengthen Screen Timeout

    It would be nice if when you enter the app there is a setting to where the screen never turns off until you leave the app like the android version.

  6. 2 pages

    I have a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 that is big enough to show scripture pages side by side. I'd like to be able to show 2 pages of scriptures side by side when looking at the screen in landscape mode, instead of one big page. It's easier to read if you don't have to read all the way across the whole screen, then try to find the next line when you have to look all the way back to the other side of the screen. I'd even like it more if it could show the 2 pages laid out as…

    We had this tentatively planned on our roadmap and still feel it is a great idea, but recently our small volunteer team has been overwhelmed with other priorities. Hopefully we can revisit this in the future.

  7. Perform Search Online

    When I perform a search, it appears that it only searches content I have downloaded.
    As such, I frequently have to switch to a browser, perform a search, switch back to the app, and download what I need.
    It would be so much nicer if I could just specify I wanted to perform an online search, then, if I found what I wanted, I could just click to download (much like clicking on one of my notes that refers to content that isn't downloaded yet.)

  8. Custom Color/Style Labels

    When selecting the colors to highlight or underline, it would be extremely useful to be able to assign labels for them to help customize the functionality on a personal level. For instance when highlighting, selecting the highlight from the drop down, it would pull up a list of the colors that I have chosen, and next to each color would be a subject title that I have assigned.

    This would make studies easier and more efficient because they would then be able to make more sense on a personal level and be able to allow us to see things in…

  9. Ward Bulletin

    The ability for ward leaders to communicate with the ward.

    Example: share lesson notes, meeting minutes, Come Follow Me assignments and followups, activity times & locations, announcements, etc.

    This feature might seem difficult to implement, but it is actually rather simple. Add a section on the Library home screen called, "Ward & Stake," similar to the "Personal" section that exists, currently. Subsections could be Elder's Quorum, Relief Society, Youth, Ward Mission, etc. Now, instead of syncing only with one's own account, query the LDS member directory database for a list of all members of the Ward or Stake and their…

  11. Print, download, export, and backup for notes, notebooks, and annotations

    While we cannot speak for others, the lack of an export feature has been a major barrier to our adoption of the Gospel Library application as the main tool for our gospel study, especially of the scriptures.

    Many consider their collection of personal notes a treasure of gospel study discoveries and personal insights. The ability to independently export or download, backup, print, read, edit, and use their own personal cross-referenced library of notes, as an independent document, would be an incredible addition to the Gospel Library application on all platforms.

    Such features addressing versatility and security, common to so many…

    We are working on updating our management of users notes and other annotations. The end goal is allowing full html notes that include charts and tables. The notes at that point would be exportable so users can have a personal offline backup, printed, or used in any other application a user would like.

  12. Add the capability of dropping individual scriptures, talks, or other customizable selections into the collection

  13. Study Plans

    Add Study Plans to the Windows-based Gospel Library. Sync it between devices. Make it an integral part of Gospel Library on any OS. I formatted my phone and had to reinstall the Gospel Library, by doing so, I lost my study plans and had to start over again.

    While we plan to implement Study Plans in the future, syncing to LDS.org and between platforms is not in our hands. The Church’s internal developers will need to work out syncing for Study Plans, at which time, we’ll sync when they do.

  14. Make a reference between a note we make, and what was highlighted when we made the note.

    When you create a note at the moment, it just pops up at the bottom of the verse (if you made a note in the scriptures at least). But, if you make two notes for the same verse, but for different parts of the verse, there is no way to follow which note went to what part of the verse. I would suggest that when you highlight something to make a note of it, both the highlighted section, and the corresponding note will be marked with a 1, or an a, or something like that. That way, you can highlight…

  15. Pen-Written Notes (Inside Note Canvas)

    So I figured out a good way to implement the use of the Pen for Surface Devices. Allow writability in the notes that you can already create as you read. This way you can still write to your heart's content and not mess with the app. All written material will be self contained within the notes.

    Although we still need to get support from the Annotations web service and implementation on iOS and Android devices (so that they can read those notes), we do like this idea and will keep it in mind as we continue development of v4 (the Windows 10 UWP version of the app).

  16. Boolean Functionality in Searches

    Include the ability to use Boolean operators in search, like AND or OR.

  17. Allow me to see the contents of a highlighted scripture while I'm writing a note.

    Currently in the version I have, when I highlight a scripture and say that I want to write a note for it, a fullscreen (almost) popup comes up allowing me to write the note, but it blocks the contents of the highlighted scripture. This makes it difficult to write the note, because I can't remember what the thought I had was, without seeing the text to remind me.

  19. Ability to share a bookmark with others.

    This would have to incorporate some sort of social networking structure, but it would be really neat if I could share bookmarks or notes with others. It would especially be neat if everyone in my family could share a bookmark for family scripture study.

  20. Navigate to next/previous chapter by tapping left/right side of screen like kindle paperwhite.

    I find the swipe action requires a very vigorous swipe, on my Lumia 640 at any rate. Its a bit more distracting too. A tap on the side like you can do with the kind e-readers would be a simpler approach.
