  • Circles 😬 Everything else 🤩

    By Tyton O. Daley
    I don’t want my review to make this app’s rating go down at all, but I would like to see a bit more flexibility in the Circles tab. I think it’s really cool that it’s already put me in the group chats within my ward, and some other ones like priests quorum, and all of the young men. But there are times when it’s more convenient to just message a couple of people, rather than the entirety of the youth in the ward. Being able to choose one or a few people in a circle at your own expense would be a great addition to the app. This app is really amazing though, there’s a Discover tab that is very fun to explore, with a lot of spiritual things to pull ideas from. I love this Scripture of the day thing going on too, I’ve loved it for the past few days since I’ve gotten this app and will continue to, I have yet to put the calendar to use, but it looks promising and I’m excited to put it to use. The goals and impressions tab is a bit disappointing. The goals are only one-liners, and when you tap them you can view your description of the goal. They’re pretty brief. Impressions are as expected though, they appear similar to a journal entry. Overall I’m very happy with the app so far and am looking forward to seeing it grow with features and users as more people join the church, and more church members get the app. Thanks for all of your work so far! :)
  • Living App

    By TM- KC
    This app is amazing. Ever since the face to face devotional, I have been so excited to finally get to use it. There are various features, all which help a bunch. First, the discover tab. It has a lot of great content and many inspirational messages which are very uplifting. Next, the Today page. This tab is also very neat. You can add your church schedule to your calendar and never miss a meeting. Also, you can link others on it so they never will also. This will be so useful for all of the activities and meetings that people have to go to. The next tab is the My Life tab. In it, you can add impressions and goals. This will be helpful in the new Youth Program where people will set goals and complete them. The next tab is my favorite one: Circles. This tab acts as a group chat for all of the classes that you are in. Wether it be a Sunday School class or Priests Quorum, you can chat with them about upcoming things and also in many other ways. The last tab is the My Profile tab. This is where you can log into your account and see additional info. Overall this app is great and I am really excited to finally be able to use it.
  • “Circles” for minors needs better parental controls

    By A Frustrated Parents
    I don’t like the “Circles” feature for the youth groups. As a parent, I can see the youth group posts but only if I go looking for them. I have turned on notifications but still don’t receive notifications for those groups (presumably because I am not actually part of that group). The boys and the leaders can comment in that group, but parents cannot. I find this disturbing for many reasons: 1) Our young men groups have no guidelines for posting, so the other boys are posting about topics and activities that I would rather my boys weren’t involved in (specifically, gaming). The boys are using it more as a chat group rather than as a tool to coordinate church activities. 2) Because I don’t receive notifications of posts, I am in the dark about what is going on in the group unless I remember to check, so it’s difficult for me to do damage control. 3) Not giving parents permission to post in the youth circles sends the message that parents don’t have a voice. There is a huge disconnect in the church when it comes to youth programs. The youth leaders are supposed to be supporting the parents, not replacing them. “Circles” is compounding that problem. It is undermining my authority as a parent, allowing youth leaders to go around the parents rather than through the parents to get to the youth.
  • I’m loving but here are some ideas

    By TuckerHG
    I love the app. It’s so much easier to communicate with my quorum. I love the reading and how accessible it is. I also love the inspiration and goals tabs. Here are some ideas though: -The links in are dark blue and with the black background sometimes it’s hard to see what they say. This might because my phone is on dark mode however. -When you click on scriptures it would be awesome if it linked you to the Gospel Library app if you have it rather then the church website because then I can link it to my scripture reading and marking in there. Or maybe pop up in a tab to the side like it does in the gospel library app rather than reroute to another page. -my friends and I were super excited for this app because we wanted to make a group chat to send uplifting and spiritual thoughts. We have one on GroupMe but it would be cool if we could make a circle on the Gospel Living app. I haven’t found a way to do this.
  • Great app. Need better notifications on Circles

    By DrSolstice
    I really love this App. The information available is wonderful. The Circles tab could be amazing if only a few things are worked on. First and foremost, the notifications need improvement. I could go a day or two without knowing someone sent a message if I’m not checking it constantly. When I send something, I need people to notice it has been sent. Also, if we could build some of our own circles, that would be great. My wife is the seminary teacher and it would be great if she had a circle for her students. We also have youth from other units that need to be included for communication purposes. Let’s work out a few kinks and make this app incredible!!!
  • Sign in failed due to unknown reason

    By LayneLoo
    Signing into my sons account gives this message: Ooops sign in failed due to unknown reason. Please try again. I’ve tried again for several days. I’ve deleted the app and reloaded it. I’ve called tech support and there is nothing wrong with this account. I can log into the church website and family search. But not the app. Hoping to log in soon especially since the quorum is using this as it’s only form of communication. It’s been a time consuming frustration to figure this out. He doesn’t have a phone. So when I log out of my account and try to log into his (which fails every time) and then try to log into mine again I get the same message. Please allow us to choose different profiles within the app so we don’t have to log in/out constantly. Especially since logging in is problematic
  • Great Ideas but needs some more flexibility

    By YW Prez
    I was most excited about the circles part of this app. Finally a way to contact my other leaders and my young women without using texting!! However, it would be really great if we could have a little flexibility with the circles and who is in them. My oldest class circle includes my adult 1st counselor, 2nd counselor, and secretary. I’m pretty sure they don’t want to get a notification whenever I send a message to my class and someone responds. It would be nice also to have the ability to create custom circles and choose who you want in them from your ward (or even stake). Being able to send a message to just a couple of girls or only one would be helpful too. Thanks for what you’ve brought us so far. I hope we can see changes like these in the near future.
  • Needs more for Goals

    By Follow the Prophet
    I’ve been looking forward to using this for a long time. Overall it looks great and I’m excite for most features. I’m a little disappointed in the Goals section. You can create goals, but they are just statements you view in the My Life section. You can create reminders, but the repeat options are limited. And that’s it for goals. No date, no repeat, no way to mark complete, no sub-goals or steps to reach, no way to measure progress. Since Goals are such a central part of the new Youth program, I was expecting quite a bit more development in this area. I was hoping to use this app as my central command center for managing my goals, but can’t do that... yet. I hope this functionality comes soon!!
  • Updates needed but will be great.

    By LLR*
    The potential of this app is huge but right now the flexibility is lacking. When adding to the calendar it doesn’t automatically put in the date that you clicked to add an event. Say I went to June 17th to add a calendar event. I click the + sign to add a calendar item, then put in the event. Then I have to scroll from March to find the date I need instead of it automatically generating to the date I actually clicked on. Also the circles are great but the admintrators should have the ability to delete, change or add people to it. We are excited to start implementing the use of this app more and more and are hoping that there will be fixes along the way.
  • Love this app, just wish that the goal setting was different

    I love this app. I just wish that the goal setting in the app was a little bit different. When you set a goal, you can only write it down as your goal, and under that, write a little bit about that goal. With the new program, goal setting has become very important. So I just wish that it was easier to set goals. Some things that you can’t do that I really wish you were able to do are being able to mark a goal as done. I also wish that you could write down steps you have to accomplish in order to complete this goal. Other than that, I think that this is a great app!
