This app contains the 2013 edition of Latter-day Saint scriptures with compelling enrichment material. The Church granted a license to Book of Mormon Central in 2016 to build this mobile app. It includes multiple versions of the text, formatting with sub-headings, red lettering to highlight words of deity, author/speaker identification, questions and answers, quotations from General Authorities and reliable scholars, charts, images, and Book of Mormon Central’s signature KnoWhys. Many more technical features and content types are contemplated in future releases. We hope you find this app rewarding and spiritually invigorating. It facilitates pondering God’s word in a rich digital environment that builds enduring faith in Jesus Christ by making Latter-day Saint scriptures, particularly the Book of Mormon, accessible, comprehensible, and defensible to the entire world. The scriptures are peerless and eternal. The enrichment material is curated to help you seek learning out of the best books by study and by faith.

Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful and Inspiring Scripture Study
This app really is something special. It is easily the most aesthetically appealing, interesting, and exciting scripture study app I have used. And it works so seamlessly. I love how I can scroll down as I’m reading and new study helps just magically appear as I go. I also enjoy the fact that it already has the brand new Book of Mormon videos and images that the Church has just released linked into the appropriate places in the text. You can watch them right in the app.
I understand that more content will be added in the future, which makes it exciting to think that I’ll be able to go back and review earlier sections of the text to see what new content has been added to the study helps.
Overall, the app is beautifully done and runs smoothly. It has already become my and my family’s favorite way to study the Scriptures.
I have been waiting for a truly interactive Book of Mormon (and other scriptures to come). With the menu at the bottom we can access videos including many original BMC creations, KnoWhys, and information about the person speaking in the text (e.g. Nephi). I know that Book of Mormon Central has much more content and over time we will get it all. This app puts a whole new meaning to the phrase “living scriptures”! Congratulations to all those who have worked to get this launched!
What I have been waiting for for years
I have been wanting an app that connects the best scriptural content, images, videos, etc. into the scriptures for years. I’m so excited for this app and have already enjoyed it the few weeks I have been using it. Yes, it does not have content for all of the verses, and it still has some way to go before being exactly what I would want, but for a first release it is amazing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
