Explore Church History from a new perspective! "Latter-day Apostles" lets you see what the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles looked like at any point in modern history. Tap any apostle's picture to read biographical information.

Drag the slider from 1832 to the present day to see who the leaders were in that year. Or just spin the wheel and see what happens. Or tap the "forwards" and "backwards" buttons to step through history, seeing the exact dates that changes were made in the quorums.

Needs improvement

I really enjoy this app, but I get frustrated when I’m trying to see a certain date/time. Your slide bar is too jumpy! I’d like to be able to either enter a year, an apostle‘s name, or be able to jump a year at a time.

The lastest version (1.2.3) now has the backwards/forwards buttons so you can see individual changes in the quorums as they happen over time. I hope you enjoy the update!

Nice, but has gotten worse

When it first came out, there was an arrow one could tap, moving it from year to year. This has been removed. That seemed to work much better than the current slide bar approach. I’m using an iPhone and it’s difficult to slide from one year to the next, even if I rotate my phone to landscape. What happens is it jumps two or often more years at a time. So the real purpose of the app, seeing changes from year to year, is lost. Again, go back. There is no shame. I’ve worked in the software industry. The mentality is often, “We never go back; always forward.” If a mistake is made, admit it and go back to a better version. Users will love you for it. Would you please respond to this review? Thank you for the app. Love the idea. So much great information is presented in a “visual” way. Love the idea.

Add a feature to enter a specific date

This is an incredibly useful app when teaching Doctrine and Covenants. However, the scrubbing bar is very difficult and it generalizes dates for the entire year. For example, Joseph was killed in June 1844, but he is listed as the prophet for the entire year of 1844. It isn’t until 1845 that the presidency is dissolved on the app.
It would be really amazing to be able to enter a specific date, like a date of a section number in D&C and see who is in leadership on that date.

The iOS version does not (yet) have a calendar button like the Android version does, but it will be added in a future release. Thank you for the feedback.
