1st question What materials are currently available (a list, PLEASE!) on the Gospel Library app in ASL for Iphone/Ipad? (I have not received a straight answer from special curriculum, lds.org feedback, etc.)

2nd question How does one find/download (on Iphone/Ipad) the ASL content? (step by step)

I do not have a device, but have a Deaf LDS friend who has an Ipad and maybe an Iphone who could benefit from that.

I saw that a person inquired about a Deaf Friendly Gospel Library last year that had nearly 44,000 views, but no replies.

I would recommend Book of Mormon, Articles of Faith, Missionary Discussions, Gospel Principles, True to the Faith, Children's Scriptures, Proclamations, Preach my Gospel, ASL music, Gospel Doctrine/Priesthood/RS, etc. Also, Gospel art.

ASL is the 3rd most common language in USA.

Would also like to see Book of Mormon app in ASL.

I only have an Android device, but I imagine the content is the same. What I see for ASL is:
  • General Conference: April 2013, October 2013, April 2014
  • Under Melchizedek Priesthood and Relief Society, there is a "4th Sunday" link to the April 2014 General Conference I mentioned above.
  • Under Media > Visual Resources, there are three videos: "God Gave Them Knowledge", "To Look Upon" (excerpt from the 2005 April talk "Pornography" by Elder Oaks), and "I Am a Son of God".
I know that's a fairly meager list, but that's what I can see at this point. There's much more than that available on LDS.org in ASL, but I guess it hasn't been formatted for the Gospel Library yet.

For Android Gospel Library, you simply choose the language "American Sign Language (ASL)" from the language selector (it's a globe icon). Then you'll see the content available in that language, just as you would do with any other language.
