On my Ipad I am able to see the membership numbers, however on my Android Phone I am not. Does anyone know if there is a forum already discussing this or if the Church is planning on adding this feature to the Android devices?

The IOS platform started development much earlier than the Android apps, which has resulted in the disparity you see. The stated goals of the developers is to have them near-on-par by the end of the year. We'll see how that goes. On a related note, how do you hold that much cognitive dissonance in your head? :)

Check out other posts in this forum, you'll see the multiple discussions around various functionality as you've noted.

Is this functionality going to be available anytime soon for Android users? It seems that the Android platform version is more than just a little bit behind IOS development. I understand that the work is all done by volunteers but I was curious if there was a timeline when they expect to include MRN in the LDS tools directory for leaders.

Timelines are rarely released. But the latest build of the Android version of LDS Tools does have the MRN included (if you are a leader with the right permissions to see MRNs). So I would guess that the official release is not too far in the future.

Really? I'm a ward clerk so I should see that, but I don't. I believe I have the latest version since there are no updates available, but I don't get anything other than names, addresses, phone numbers, and callings.

Note that I said "latest build" -- not latest released version. I'm talking about version 1.6.0.0-SNAPSHOT, which has not been released yet. If you want to try it out (of course be aware that it is unreleased software and there are no guarantees), you can find it at http://www.ldsmobiletester.com/android/

The latest build appears to work great. I am able to see the membership numbers, which I need when doing Temple Recommend interviews. It also includes the ages. It would be great if the Bishop could have the reports too.

I'm an Assistant clerk and I don't see MRN or age in the snapshot build but I can see it on an iOS device.
