A Little More Information

Now that the application has been submitted, I thought I'd give you a little more information about this app. It's very basic in its current form, allowing the user to search the entire Hymnal by either title or hymn number. It also includes the hymns in groups of 50 by number if you prefer look through the Hymnal in that way.

I am open to suggestions on ways to improve the application, although at this point my time is very limited. My initial goal was to produce a functional application that fulfilled my basic needs. Some of my ideas for additional features include adding the full text of the hymns (and making the text searchable) for all hymns in case you don't want to see the music, as well as including an easier way to go from one hymn to the next without having to back out to the hymn list.

I would also like to point out that there were a few hymns or portions thereof that had to be excluded for copyright reasons. The list of those hymns includes:

Text-only included (music copyrighted): 12, 15, 54, 62, 82, 124, 143, 284

Music-only included (text copyrighted): 299, 323, 324

Hymn entirely omitted (music and text copyrighted): 86, 219, 296

With that out of the way, please enjoy a few additional screenshots!

  1. I choose the hymns for Relief Society meetings. I search for them on the lds website accordind to topic. For instance, if the topic lesson is on charity, I would do a search for hymn that have to do with charity. At home we have many pc users and sometimes I don't get a chance to search them on the web. It would be cool if this lds hymn app would be able to do such a search. Thanks a million for this app. Sincerely, ldslourdes.
