Introducing the All-New LDS Scriptures Pro, Coming Soon

I know you have heard the “Coming Soon” once before, but we assure  you it really is. Launching in early 2017, LDS Scriptures Pro is going to be well worth the wait, we promise.

One of the most common questions we are being asked is “how much will it cost?” While we can’t release any specifics on pricing, we can tell you that the app will be affordable and provide access on all available platforms. The new pricing structure will also ensure we can release frequent updates and new features.

Completely Redesigned

We redesigned your reading and marking tools from the ground up to give you the best scripture studying experience possible. All of your existing synced markings from the current LDS Scriptures app will be imported automatically into LDS Scriptures Pro! With innovative features, an improved interface, and more content, LDS Scriptures Pro will help you explore the scriptures like never before.

Daily Study Supercharged

Whether your personal scripture study goal is just a few verses or several chapters, LDS Scriptures Pro is designed to help you reach your goal. Set your own daily goal and track your reading over time, much like a fitness tracker, but for scripture study! LDS Scriptures Pro includes achievements, activities, and social features, creating a completely new way to find yourself immersed in the scriptures.


And that’s just a taste of the new features and design of LDS Scriptures Pro. More to come!

  1. Fantastic! I spend from 1 to 2 hours per day reading, annotating, tagging, and linking my scriptures using the Gospel Library App. This new app sounds like it will resolve many of the weaknesses of the current app. I can’t wait and want to thank each and everyone working on this project for your vision of how important this is and your hard work. This is really GREAT news.

  2. My husband and I are really excited for this new app to come out.
    Thank you for working so hard to get it to us.
    David and Janie

  3. Will the new app import all the current annotations, highlights, bookmarks, etc., from the current app? I’m surprised no one asked this question before now.

  4. Any mods to the present app that will allow rapid change from, e.g., hymns, to the New Testament, to the Book of Mormon will be appreciated.

  5. With the approach of the new LDS Scriptures Pro in January will there be a no charge update available for existing users or do we have to re-purchase it? Also what about highlights we have all ready made with the present LDS Scriptures? Will we loose what we have all ready done?

    1. Highlights will be moved over automatically. The new app will not be free, we have to cover the cost of development and overhead.

  6. Will there be a night-time reading (darker interface) option as well? The ability to set some controls/threshold over contrast level when using for extended periods is something I hope has been considered and implemented. Looking forward to this!

  7. Will the app link between devices so when I mark, add notes , etc. on my iPad they will also upload to my phone and visaversa?

  8. I’m intrigued. One question comes to mind, however. You say it will sync with my current LDS app but does it back sync as well. That is, will what I enter on your app also show up on my LDS app?

    1. We will copy your existing markings from LDS Scriptures App automatically. It won’t sync between the old app and this new one though going forward after the initial copy.

  9. I need to improve the capacity to use scriptures, notes, info from other sources to assemble lessons regarding specific topics.
    I would like a source of support.
    I can’t go from one chapter to the next without going back to library. I would like to be able to use the app on both my desk top iMac and iPad.

  10. I’m in! Having tried different marking systems and not finding one that works as effectively as I’d like, I’ve been searching and planning to start from the beginning, but hadn’t decided on which system to use. The thought of having one system to work seamlessly, is just perfect timing, as I’m ready to start the Book of Mormon over again. How soon before it’s available?

    1. There will be a charge. We have to pay developers and overhead, it is the only way we can make an amazing app.

  11. I really hope you have thought to ensure that scriptures quoted in a note will be embedded so that by tapping on the scripture you will be taken directly to it.

  12. It appears to me as though the goal setting is about numbers here, I hope we can get away from number of chapters read or amount of time spent reading as the important factors. Can you not develop something that would help us to set goals around reading important subject matter, understanding and pondering? After 40 years, I’ve come to the conclusion that not all the pages of scripture are worth the same or are as important as some others are.

    1. If there was a way to measure that it would be great, however there really isn’t. Time spent reading as well as interactions are the best measurement from our research and I think you will find it useful. If only we had a “spiritual heart rate monitor”! 🙂

  13. The current version has many flaws, and features which do not work, it has not been value for money.
    Also going through Facebook for help is difficult if you do not want to use that site.
    Will there be a better trouble shooting system put in place to rectify problems?
    Cautiously optimistic.

    1. Yes we have designed a completely new website and integrated support system. Sorry for the issues you’ve experienced, I know you’re going to love the new one!

  14. I too, am anxious for the improvements. I hope you are making it so that I can login on my desktop computer, and organize and fix problems with my numerous tags, combining some of them, re-wording the categories, etc. I hope. I hope!

    1. Not releasing any specifics yet. To support development going forward there will be a cost for previous users as it is a completely new app, but we have kept it affordably priced.

  15. Would like to know what happens when you’ve bought the app, and switch devices?

    Also, for seminary teachers or families, can you build in a multiple download fee?


  16. I have been using LDS SCRIPTURES since the beginning. I also have the Gospel Library, but I use that program occasionally, but prefer LDS SCRIPTURES. I am excited for the upgrade!

    1. Look for the dates at the end of the heading/summary of chapters, that’s where they are usually at. 1 Nephi 1 for example says “About 600 B.C.” at the end of the chapter summary.

    1. Citations is one of our best features, it shows all resources that quote a scripture for better and deeper study. We have many more exciting features in the new app as well, look for them to be announced as we get closer to launch.

  17. for some time now, when i load LDS Scriptures, it takes a couple of days for all of the Tags to show up. I do have lots of tags and over a 1000 pages of notes. i assume that this new PRO will have the power to handle users like myself?

  18. Will the new PRO have the ability to toggle between showing the Notes or not? I love my 1000 pages of notes but they do get in the way when i just want to “read” the scriptures

  19. It all sounds great! I have the app on my IPad, however it is old and the processor is not up to date and everything crashes. I did buy a new laptop (HP) and was wondering how I would get the new app on my laptop instead of my IPad. Is this possible?

  20. I’m excited to get the upgrade and to have it synced to the lastest General Conference talks. Will the new app have the ability to scroll as you read? It’s one of my favorite features.
