The ability to have your tabs and synced between all devices that share an account so you can move from one device to another without having to find all your spots again.93 votes
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.82 votes
This is an interesting idea that we should take under consideration. Let’s see how many votes it can garner.
Add option in appearance section of settings to choose whether the live tile is solid colored (current appearance) or transparent.55 votes
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.41 votes
This is a good idea. We’ll need to figure out how we want to implement this. Should these be a feature that can be turned on or off in settings?
Add the ability to put a box around a section of text. This would be especially useful if one could also underline key words within the box.
Example: I would like to put a box around the parable of the Good Samaritan but then just underline the one key word Samaritan.29 votes
At present, this feature is not possible for us to implement because the annotations web service (to which we must sync so that your annotations are available on iOS, Android, and LDS.org) doesn’t support it. If that changes in the future, we’ll revisit this suggestion.
It would be cool to have the apps main tile flip through the inspirational messages shown on the apps home screen.25 votes
We are looking at implementing this in the upcoming V3 version of the app, integrating it will the chaseable live tiles feature of the Anniversary Update for Windows 10.
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 the scriptures are, 2 columns side by side on each page. With larger tablets and laptops you could show 2 pages each containing 2 columns of scripture verses that would look just like opening a book of scripture on the tablet screen.

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.
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.9 votes
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).
Add an "are you sure you want to delete?" option. I've accidently deleted the wrong bookmark several times as well as special notes I've taken. This option would have saved me heartache many times. A confirmation request on updating bookmarks would be nice too!7 votes
The "Current" special collection would have automatically updated/downloaded content for the newest Friend, Ensign, New Era, or General Conference when it is made available.6 votes
This is a nice idea. and hopefully when we catch up we can look at implementing something like this.
I see that the idea titled notebooks is listed as completed but I would like to suggest an improvement. When viewing the contents of a notebook, I would really like to see them on the whole screen and not just as a small column down the left side of the screen. This will aid those , like me who would really like to search their own annotations.6 votes
We have tentative plans to introduce this in the future, but the feature is very low priority at the moment.
Please add captioning for the videos since I cant hear or make out the words. Thanks.5 votes
While if it were in our power, we’d love to make this possible, we develop the application, not the content, and this feature would require content-level support. The content is handled by an entirely different group of people. They provide the content for the apps, we can only make available what they make available.
If, in the future, captions become available for inclusion in the application, we will revisit this suggestion.
In addition to Highlighting/Underlining, I need a colored bar to the side of the text (less distracting while projecting the app in class)
When I teach I project the App on a screen during class so that the students can follow along easier. The highlighting and underlining is distracting and hard to read for the audience. I need something that will keep the text cleaner. I suggest a colored bar or just a line to the left of the text.4 votes
A feature like this would require support from the annotations web service, which currently does not exist.
We will examine if there is a way to work around this issue, perhaps by converting all other types of marking to sidebars with an option in the settings menu, but it is not likely to happen, nor would such a feature be a high priority at present.
Easily copy and share a scripture or quote to a flashcard and be able to group flashcards into sets or tag by topic.3 votes
As this isn’t part of the core functionality of Gospel Library, we may never implement such a feature. We will, however, still look into this when we begin work on the home screen widgets, especially the Ponderize widget.
Be able to cast screen or videos to chromecast to share during a lesson.3 votes
While we’d love to be able to support the Chromecast, there isn’t a Windows app SDK for us to use to implement such a feature. We’re waiting on Google for this one.
Whether by shading, a dot etc., having a way to indicate articles one has read (for instance conference talks) - or a full magazine, if one has read all the articles - so that one can continue reading here and there without finding that they are repeating a previously read conference talk, or missing one they haven't read yet.1 vote
