LDS Hymns 1.3 Now Available!

Version 1.3 of LDS Hymns was just released in the App Store.  It includes the ability to select hymns by name (A->Z listing) as well as by hymn number.  This was a highly requested feature!  Please let me know what feedback you have!

Children's Songbook 1.0 Now Available!

One of the biggest requests I've received from users of LDS Hymns and Himnos SUD was to create a similar application for the Primary Children's Songbook.  I'm now pleased to announce that this application is available!  Apple has just approved Children's Songbook (App Store link) for download!  This application, like LDS Hymns, is a free application and will always remain that way.  It contains all of the Primary songs except those that have a copyright that prohibits redistribution.  The following songs have been omitted from the app:

37. Stars Were Gleaming
97. God's Love
182. How Will They Know?
201. When Grandpa Comes
229. God Is Watching Over All
238. Springtime Is Coming
247. Autumn Day
265. Be Happy!
271. I Wiggle
273. My Hand

Otherwise this application has the same features as LDS Hymns - the ability to search all songs, mark songs as favorites, as well as to select songs by number, first line or title (this latter capability is coming soon to LDS Hymns).  Please keep the feedback coming and enjoy the app!  Please consider donating via the link to the right if you've found this app useful!  Some screenshots:

LDS Hymns 1.2 now available!

Version 1.2 is now available on the App Store (App Store link) and comes with one of the most requested features: the ability to mark hymns as favorites for easy access later.  This is especially helpful to preselect hymns for a church meeting or conference.  Some screenshots (click for full-size versions):

Please keep the suggestions coming and thanks for your support!

Apple had some exciting news for fans last week with the announcement of the iPad.  While the SDK is still early, I plan to fully support the iPad with a version of LDS Hymns once it arrives.  I already have basic functionality working!  I don't have a lot of time to work on this right now, but I hope to have something together by March/April when the iPad is scheduled to be released!  Stay tuned!
