First of all... Fantastic work on the latest preview! I'm using it as my daily driver now and love it!

Question... Would it be possible to support something like this... ? When viewing there catalog, I see a lot of new items and manuals. It'd be neat if I could hit the item's menu and open up a short snippet/description for that item. Not sure if the catalog currently has this type of description for each item, but would be nice to get more details about an item without having to first download it. Not a big deal, but just curious...

Quick question, since I haven't seen anything in FAQs, etc... I just became Ward Clerk today and the Bishop updated my calling in LCR. After syncing LDS Tools, I see in the Organizations that I have the calling, but don't have access to anything else (including LCR).

How long should I expect for permission to propagate/update for my account? (Might be helpful to add this to LDS Tools FAQ too)

Hello there! I guess I'm first! Have to say that I love the refreshed design and feel! Great job on it!

Did notice one small thing in the quiz. Looks like the view's width is a tiny bit off. See the attached video for an example.

Is something up with the content server this morning? I've been unable to download anything. The loading circle displays, but never goes anywhere. Seemed to do it regardless of what I tried to download/install. (Stayed by trying to get the D&C Seminary manual)

Just sent a bug report through feedback, but figured I'd post here too. I'm unable to play any videos. Or appears the video loads, as the time remaining appears. However, all attempts to interact with the player produce no results (any play button, full screen, seek). It's as is there was a hidden element on top of the player preventing the interaction. Anyone else seeing this?

Great video and meaning. It's probably why, even though an idea or app in my head may have a monetary incentive, once I get past the challenge, I move on to the next idea.
Interesting video discussing what kinds of motivation we want when we're completing tasks. This whole idea of work = reward has never actually worked, and we see it daily in our education system, many corporations use it, and even parents use it to get their kids to accomplish something. Is it really the right way to do things?

Did you know that Taxi Cab companies are trying to end Taxi Neutrality? They are saying that restaurants and bars are freeloaders profiting on their infrastructure, and they plan to drive customers to restaurants at 5mph unless that particular restaurant purchases a high speed customer transportation service from them. And that's in addition to the normal cab fare you already pay.

In addition, straw manufacturers are trying to end Straw Neutrality, arguing that juice bars are freeloading on their product, and want juice bars to pay them for a premium beverage suction plan for transporting lemonade from the glass to the customer's mouth.

Airlines also want to end air travel neutrality, arguing that touristic destinations and hotels are freeloading on their routes, and want hotels and vacation destinations to pay them to fly customers there. And that's in addition to the air fare you already pay, of course.

Do any of those sound absurd? Well, that's because they are all totally made up. I just invented them. But something very similar is happening on the Internet, and this one is true: internet providers are trying to end Net Neutrality using the exact same logic: web services will have to pay them to be able to provide a service to you. And that's in addition to the normal price you already pay for internet access.

Had a great day completing another metric century ride at the Charlotte Tour de Cure. Was a nice day once the ran left and had a great time helping some first timers. Thanks everyone for your support for this cause!

After the 100-miler yesterday. Did it in 5:51:06, so an average of 17.21 mph. Beautiful day and legs are still feeling great! Thanks everyone for your support! #TourDeCure
