Now in Portuguese!

The latest update to LDS Hymns (1.6.1) fixes an annoying crashing bug, but also provides the Portuguese Hymns!  Special thanks to Eurico Costa for his help with the translation.

Many of you have asked to help with additional languages.  I would love to add more languages, but this is limited by the availability of the hymns in native PDF format (not scanned), which is only possible with the original music notation source content (which only the Church is likely to have).  The only other language with these PDF hymns available is French.  I'm hopeful that in the future more languages will become available!

  1. Hey, I wasn't sure where a more appropriate place to add this was, so move it if you see fit. This is a bug report.

    BUG: LDS Hymns v. 1.6.2
    2G iPod Touch (8GB) - iOS 4.0

    Description: Spanish Himno #65 does not load, and simply causes the program to exit.

    Thanks for a truly awesome app that we use every week in church here in Monterrey, Mexico! (The chapel doesn't have hymn books, and we just barely bought our own). This new version that allows language switching is a welcome addition. Keep it up!

  11. Hey Ricky,

    I noticed that this is now available for the Android thanks to your .pdf files. That has been VERY helpful - thank you!! Is there any way to get the .pdf files so that I can get them ported over to the Kindle as well?

    Thanks!

    Rich

  12. It would probably be more easier for Kindle to get these from lds.org. Have you tried that?

  13. I don't see any copyright authorizations on the app. Are you using the LDS hymn book with appropriate copyright permissions? In addition, there are several hymns that require written permission from respective copyright holders.
