I was happily relieved at how easy and quick it was to download everything, find the scripture I needed, and still keep up with the Institute teacher. And THEN...guess what! I really wanted to mark one of the scriptures we had talked about. And it turns out I can do that, too...right on my phone!
I can even pick different color options and underline stuff!
Wait! It gets better! Later in the class, the teacher used a relevant quote that I really liked and knew that I would want to remember it the next time I read this section of the Doctrine and Covenants. With my paper scriptures, I would normally have written it on a sticky note and just stuck it right on the page. But with this app, I found a little "NOTE" option when I highlighted which is just like adding my very own digital sticky.
After spending 90 minutes getting to know this app, I might be converted to digital scriptures. In fact, I came home and told the Scout Master that I need an iPad. Think it'll work? :)
