Is there/will there be a version released for Android devices?

I also tried it on my wife's phone with her credentials and the result was the same. We are both running iOS 4.1 with iphone/itouch. We are in a ward in New York, if location matters.


I actually had several good days with the iPhone version before it started crashing on me. Googling around today, I found this page which may help figure out where the crashes are coming from (but it will require a file that is only available to someone who compiled the code): http://www.anoshkin.net/blog/2008/09/09/iphone-crash-logs/

I don't have xcode yet or the dSYM file in order to take the debugging to the next step. It is interesting to me that all of the recent crashes are from a SIGABRT, which I am guessing the IOS is sending to the process because the kernel thinks the application is taking too long?

If any of the developers (especially one who has the dSYM) are interested in looking at my .crash files, please let me know.

Here's another URL that may be useful: http://www.restoroot.com/Blog/2008/10/18/crash-reporter-for-iphone-applications/ . There would just need to be an endpoint of some sort for accepting the exception reports.

For those looking for the webOS version

Postby unixguy » Mon Oct 04, 2010 9:19 pm

This version can be downloaded from http://snyder.dnsalias.org/lds-tools_0.4.5_all.ipk (md5sum: ace77bfcbcc2ca0af9b979b683192343).

It is provided with no warranty. For the curious (or suspicious), as near as I can tell every build has a slightly different size even when there are no code changes, so if you build it yourself (which turns out to be not too difficult), your md5sum will be different from mine.

Development is underway, as you can see on the wiki at LDS Tools for Android.

Bruno, não é bem assim. O problema é que nós, membros da Igreja no Brasil não nos interessamos tanto pelas coisas como os americanos, além do fato de que poucos são os que trabalham com informática em nosso país. Acredito que dentro de alguns anos teremos muitas novidades na área de recursos de TI e Administração da Igreja disponíveis em Português. Assim como você, eu me frustro às vezes com coisas assim, mas infelizmente esta é a nossa realidade atual. O que podemos fazer é ajudar quando nos pedem ajuda, como na tradução de recursos (Simple Acts) e outras coisas que vão aparecendo aos poucos. Abraços.

I can add a little additional information. With a clean install on my device I had a friend, who has no problem with the app, log onto my device. No crash. After completing the log on to my device, and on his device I attempted to log on. In both cases the app crashed and when it was restarted the downloaded content showed his ward and stake.

This makes me believe that the problem has to be in the encoding of the data for my ward and stake - an error that doesn't occur in his data. Apparently, the app doesn't properly handle bad ward/stake data and crashes when it occurs.

An early version of "Gospel Library" had an issue like this where it would crash on specific parts of a lesson manual, again, this behavior was verified on different devices.

Hope this helps.

Not available in the US App Store?

Postby jordanrjones » Fri Oct 15, 2010 7:11 pm

Hey All,

I was so excited to see this on The Church's site; however, when I click on the link that would bring me to iTunes, iTunes opens and presents me with the error, "Your request could not be completed. The item you've requested is not currently available in the US store."

Does anyone have any idea why this is? I also noticed it after the most recent update to the Gospel Library, but that seemed to be fixed after a few days. Thanks for the help and information!

Details on this issue can be found on the wiki under LDS Tools for iPhone - Known Issues‎‎. That page will be updated as the status changes.

Thanks, Alan! I guess I will have to wait until they put it back in the app store.
