The Book of Mormon app and 17 more Church apps you might not know about

Sharing the Book of Mormon with a friend typically requires some courage, love and faith. It doesn’t require, however, a hard copy of the Book of Mormon. 

The Church’s Book of Mormon app — available for iOS, Android and Windows in more than 100 languages — allows for instant sharing of a digital Book of Mormon. 

Different from the full-featured version of the scriptures in the Gospel Library app, this simple version of the Book of Mormon doesn’t have footnotes or cross-references — making it easier for those not familiar with the Book of Mormon to read it or listen to audio recordings. 

The Book of Mormon app includes a simple reference guide to key scriptures about Jesus Christ and doctrines, people, places and events in the Book of Mormon, as well as links to corresponding Book of Mormon videos. It also includes information to get in touch with missionaries, locate nearby meetinghouses and find answers to common questions at ChurchofJesusChrist.org/ComeuntoChrist

This app is one of nearly two dozen Church apps available for free. Here are others:
