I am a YW adviser for 11 year olds and none of them have cell phones. The Gospel Living app is such a great to but we really need a Web interface for our young women To be part of these conversations. They feel like they’re missing out!!

I have heard that they are considering a web interface for the Gospel Living app. However, I also recommend you express your concerns to your ward leadership. If we follow the Savior's example, we will be sensitive to the needs of the one and minister in whatever way will be effective to them, not expect them to conform to how we want to minister. Having access to technology should never be a requirement for membership and inclusion in the Lord's church.

I don't find this much different from other tech-enhanced communication methods implemented by local Youth leaders, albeit this is an official Church app. I've often found that whether it's group texting, WhatsApp, FB pages, or any other way leaders engage with youth using the Tech they identify with, there's almost always other youth who are left out. I know of parents who are frustrated because there's so much good communication between other girls and their leaders, yet their daughter/son is left out because the parent chooses not to have their youth have a cell phone to text, or their child just isn't interested in FB, etc.

To me there's no easy answer, and I'm not positive an 11-yr-old would engage with a web-based interface the same way they would if they had a cell phone with the App. But I do sympathize with every parent in this situation, where they don't want their child left out or left behind.

Not sure if this was already answered or not, the app is currently available on chromebooks and it being worked on to work with MAC computers in the near future.

All chromebooks or just the ones that can run Android apps?

Any plans for Windows users?
