This "diff" feature highlights & colors the deletions, additions, and modifications to the text.

Powerful stuff. 1830 edition Book of Mormon, Book of Commandment, original D&C, Journal of discourses quotes. 10 different first vision accounts. I’m an exmormon apologist. I wish every Mormon would download this an learn more about their history. I pray that God will use this app through Christians, to reach the Mormon people. (No grudge against them, no hatred, nothing but love for them, and for the truth.)

Slightly predatory design

The app has a few glitches and looks like the human typo on the title page was fixed.

The gospel facts app has a smaller selections of old documents and different change to religious documents or documents rejected by the religious group but lacking full context for changes or full remove from its cannon or core beliefs.
I would recommend using the Gospel library app and look in the church history section with a greater selection of records, images, videos and essays on doctrines and there context to history and there respected time periods and input from different scholars researchers
Period. Or another app is revelations in context for review of doctrine and covenants.
the gospel facts app very predatory in its design which other reviewers have pointed out use of image that has been more encouraged by the “Mormon church“ or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint.
the apps both have the Christus in the middle of a square with multiple blue shades covering the same religion in different ways.

Best documentation source for historical Mormonism!

It is amazing to know that now I can basically, carry a copy of “Mormonism: Shadow or Reality” in my phone!! Plus, many other excellent and highly respected scholarly resources offered by UTLM for comparative studies between biblical Christianity and LDS truth claims.
