'What's that one talk?' and other frustrations the new Gospel Library update solves

The latest Gospel Library app update contains some new and updated features to help make scripture study and navigation easier and more effective.

One of the biggest changes is the added feature for searching general conference talks. Talks can now be found listed by speakers and by topic indexes. Rather than spending time searching through each annual and semi-annual conference list to find 'that one' talk, it can now easily be found by simply remembering who gave the talk or what the main topic was.

Another update that should make navigating back and forth between different scriptures, talks, or resources easier is the updated grid navigation. While the books within each standard work still appear in list form, chapters now appear in numbered boxes.

Additional updates include the ability to create personalized cross-references for scriptures and other resources, as well as an improved verse call-out feature highlighting verses with footnote links.

More efficient storage for downloaded content and an updated feedback forum where users can ask questions and report bugs on the app have also been added.

In June 2018, the LDS Library Media app also released a software update, as did LDS tools in April 2018. As of right now, the 5.0 update has only been released for the iOS version of the app. The Android update to version 5.0 is slated to release in the coming weeks.
