It's clear that the LDS Church knows how to tap technology to promote the faith and to reach the faithful.
But now it also knows how new devices can simplify tasks such as scripture-reading for Mormon leaders and members.
At a recent devotional in Asia, LDS apostle Dallin Oaks was looking up scriptural passages on his iPad. He told the members gathered there that Boyd K. Packer, the senior Mormon apostle, "had made them all get iPads which has been a much more convenient and light way to carry his scriptures with him," reported a blogger at Wheat&Tares who was there.
But does that mean the apostle will be playing games on the iPad when he gets bored in General Conference?
The LDS scripture, Oaks said, is the only app he has on his Apple device.
