• Lists. Create custom lists of members in your ward and stake.

EVEN BETTER THAN EVER (2.5.0) ...
The release of version 2.5.0 has been the coming to fruition of a lot of hard work - both of the full-time staff - as well as the volunteer beta testers who've 'kicked the tires' and 'road tested' this release at various stages in its development.
With far more capabilities than before, members are now empowered to see their full IOS (Individual Ordinance Summary) detailing their complete listing of ordinances (baptism, confirmation, priesthood ordinations if male), as well as their marriage information if married, and their parentage, date and place of birth for purposes of their personal family history.
This makes it much easier on both members, as well as ward clerks and bishopric members, so as to reduce both time and paperwork in printing out an IOS that can now be viewed here in the app.
Leaders will continue to have broader access to and within LDS Tools, based on, commensurate with the need for access as directed by their ward or stake calling.
All in all, a giant leap forward, as LDS Tools gets even better and better for one and all involved! ***
The tool I've always wanted
With the latest update, this app is off the charts good. My biggest issue with moving away from MLS, was that I couldn't see anything from the Relief society or even the High Priests. And we couldn't view HH's not visited by a variety of months. Now we can with this app. If only the new leader and clerk resources can take some cues from this app. I love it! Ward council meetings will be far more productive with everyone using this app.
Previous review: Who doesn't want to have all their stake/ward info right in your pocket. So useful - thanks for all the time put in to making such a great app.
New Update is Broken
I love this app! Makes callings and contacting people so much easier. But the new update won't let me in, even after a successful sign in. It keeps saying I've changed my password, I re-enter my non-changed password, it says success, then I try to sync and it says the same thing, I need to re-enter my changed password.
Again, great app, but new update has some bugs. Big enough that I can't even use it.
