The BYU RSC app gives you thousands of FREE, informative, gospel-centered articles, journals, and books from the Religious Studies Center (RSC) library. These are researched and written by scholars, educators, Church leaders, and historians. This library is exclusive to the RSC and is NOT available on LDS.org. This app will aid scripture study and provide you with a greater understanding of a multitude of gospel topics. It is ideal for your personal gospel study and for preparing talks and lessons. The RSC library is filled with books and journals written by some of the best LDS intellectuals of our day. Besides the published books, below is a sample of what else you will have access to.
Religious Educator Journal: Browse hundreds of articles published in the RSC Religious Educator journal, which are written specifically for teachers of the gospel and generally for all members who wish to achieve a greater understanding of the gospel and its teachings. Enhance your scripture study and analysis. Also, discover the latest information regarding Church history and doctrine. Each Religious Educator journal leads off with one or more articles written by General Authorities and other Church leaders.
BYU Conferences and Symposia: Access past RSC conferences and symposia. Watch recorded conferences and symposia or read the presentations in books published by the RSC. You can also learn about future events.
Review Magazine: Discover all that is happening in Religious Education at BYU by reading the Review magazine. For example, read articles on the BYU Jerusalem Center, the Joseph Smith Papers project, archaeological discoveries, and the teaching legacies of those who have had an impact on BYU students, administrators, and millions of members around the world.

Ratings and Reviews
A ton of material
I have learned to go straight to the "My Study" tab on the bottom because that gives ready access to the articles. There is a tremendous wealth of study material here.
From my limited perspective, it looks like this app has everything that the web page has. It just comes up faster because it is local.
Great content hundred by poor execution
The content is worth five stars. But the execution of the application is aggravating. It's often easier to go straight to the web to reach this content. The application doesn't remember where you are between visits. And it's very difficult to clip and share what you have learned with others. I would love to see this application reach its full potential.
Lots of bugs but great potential
The Book page works for me but the Symposium, Magazine, and Educator pages do not. Maybe by the time I get through the mounds of useful information that is ready to go the issues with the other pages will be fixed. Thank you for making this available, it will be a wonderful tool.
