My favorites apps: Chapter Tap LDS Scriptures allows you to set a goal for scripture reading and check off each chapter you read. It also tells you what percentage of the whole book (Book of Mormon, Old Testament, etc) that you have read. Great way to keep track of where you are in the scriptures! For kids: Coloring Book - you can buy lds coloring books for your kids to color on your apple devises. Great way to keep kids quiet in church.

One of my favorite apps is called “My Gratitude Journal”. You can write one word or paragraphs. I have mine set to remind me to write everyday at 7:30. So everyday it asks me “What am I grateful for”? Usually my posts are short, but I’m glad I take time out every day to find something to be grateful for. You can also attach a photo with your post or tag a location. You can also go back and add days you might miss.
