Jim Byer will be giving the presentation “Windows 8 Gospel Library” at noon MST on Friday, February 7, 2014.

The Gospel Library for Windows 8 was originally developed last year. An LDSTech community of .NET Developers was formed to convert it to Windows 8.1, update the content, fix some bugs, and release it to the Microsoft Windows Store. That release was posted December 26, 2013.

Additional features and a redesign of the user interface is scheduled for the next release, which may come as early as April general conference. New features include synchronizing annotations (bookmarks, highlights, notes, tags, and cross-references) with other devices, presenting content in multiple languages, resizing text, and other features as time and resources allow.

The changes to Gospel Library for Windows will also have a positive effect on the Gospel Library for Windows Phone application. The two products were completely separate, but the new architecture will merge the code into one base.
