This Mormon Life 2012- iPhone edition

I don’t know if it is because I am the father of three little girls or what, but I was just looking at my phone and thinking about all the church apps I have for being at church on Sunday.

Feel free to judge me by my apps:



I wonder if this is just because church is 3 hours long and it is easier to pocket a phone than haul scriptures, coloring books, crayons, quiet books, friends, toys, etc.

Most used are:

Most used by me: LDS tools- always using it to visit other members, call other members, etc. Close second, Gospel Library.

Most used by the family- read the scriptures. Helps keep us on track to read as a family, BUT the app breaks a lot, save your money and just use the website.

Most used by the 2 year old- Primary sing along. She is hooked on “I Am A Child Of God”

Most used by the 5 year old- Coloring games are a big hit here.

Most used by the 8 year old- Where’s the water trumps church games generally, but she’ll play Lamanite or Jonah.

What church apps do you have/use?


  1. Wow, that is a lot of church apps.

    I use the scriptures app, but other than that I have a goal to never pull out my phone at church. I strictly enforce a no-iphone policy for my kids while at church and make them haul around paper scriptures, actual crayons, etc.

  2. I don’t take my religion seriously enough to have more than 4 religion apps. And my kids are app atheists. Its a fun idea for a post.

  3. Wow. That’s a lot of apps. Anybody got an equivalent list for Android? I like my Android phone a lot, but it seems like there are a lot more LDS apps for iPhone.

    LDS Apps I use regularly on Android include:

    — LDS Tools

    — Gospel Library (Why don’t the scripture stories include pictures???)

    — Reveal (love the way I can pageup and pagedown with the volume buittons)

    — Mormon Channel (I use this all the time to listen to Past Impressions while commuting, but it’d be hard to find an app that is less finger friendly. The “series” row on its main page is 40 icons wide!)
