    Is this news or advertising?

    I enjoy the app and I have enjoyed it. It would be better if it would sync to have all the information current on all of the devices. I understand that is in the works. I love it because the pages can turn so it seems like a real book. I hope that they will get it so it can be highlighted in different colors. I have had the app for a year and I really enjoy being able to actually afford to read a new book once in a while since I live where you can't just go to the local library and pick it up. They have a ways to go on making it better, but I use it at church and I will be using it now to teach my Sunday School lessons at times. I just can't hypo-link to the scriptures that a person is to read. It is worth getting.

    Yes, the DB app is designed to hold an entire gospel library. While I appreciate the free books you mentioned, you did not mention that several of the current lesson manuals are also free in the store for this app. However, not all of them are as they are in the "Gospel Library" app on the church website (not sure why.)

    A few of the free books DB gives like "Jesus The Christ" are free on Amazon, YanceyWare (Reveal Reader), and Gutenberg. However, "Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith" (older book and not the recent church class manual) and "The Miracle of Forgiveness" are only free on DB's store app.
