LDS Ordinances Coming to an End

I have some bad news, after requesting the copyrighted ordinance language material for use in this application, I was denied access. I am sorry for not checking on this sooner, but I only recently learned of this official request process. I want to thank everyone who helped support this application and made it possible. This application will not be removed, but it will no longer be updated or supported; I will not go actively against church direction.

I would attach the official response but it contains the following: "This email message is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information. Any unauthorized review, use, disclosure or distribution is prohibited."

Programming update

I am currently in the process of adding French and Swedish languages to this application. I was planning on knocking a lot of the programming out today but ran into a snag. My net-book I have been using to do all the Java programming on is finally on its last leg. I recently purchased a fast desktop PC, so spend most of the day transferring all the programming work over to it. I was hoping to be able to simply download the GIT file, but it turns out it has not been updating for some reason - so I performed the transfer manually. Looks like I will be backing up my workspace to Google Drive again. To get up and running on my new computer I installed Java JRE, Java JDK, Eclipse IDE, Android ADT, SDK Manager, AVD Manager, All Android libraries, Eclipse plug-ins, keystore publishing files, mapped environment variables, verified all dependencies, and corrected all dependent errors. Think I am ready to start programming on my machine, finally - hopefully next week.

Thanks to user support from Eliott and John, this application is in the process of being translated into Swedish and French. Thank you for all your help! These two languages will be available in the next version of the application which should be in the next two months.

Update to Version 2.4

Thanks to all the help received from users and volunteers, this application is now available in Portuguese. Minor corrections made to Spanish translation as well. This will likely be the last language translation.

Suggested Features - Translate into Portuguese

I am now working on translating this application into Portuguese. This is being done on the branch Implement_User_Organization which can be followed on GitHub. I commit every time major changes are made so anyone interested can see how this code is developing. I have gotten to the point of translating all text into Portuguese. I now need people who speak Portuguese to help verify my translations before I publish them. If anyone knows how to read and write Portuguese and wants to help please contact me at

Update to Version 2.3

Just finished implementing the suggested feature of allowing users to change the text size. Also made minor changes to the Spanish language for added consistency.
