I seem to have some issues related to the automatic immersive mode. When bringing the menus back, they cover up part of the hymn, with no ability to scroll any higher.

As a feedback note, I feel like automatically going into immersive mode might be jarring for users who aren't used to apps doing that.

Device specs: OnePlus One, Cyanogen OS 12 (Android 5.0.2)

Personally, I don't mind the automatic immersive mode or that part of the hymn is covered over when not in immersive mode since a user will likely be trying to navigate away, play the audio or otherwise do something other than read the music.  That said, I do agree that it could be jarring for some--maybe it could be an option in the settings to automatically enter immersive mode or to disable the auto immersive?  

If there is interest in viewing the hymn out of immersive mode with scrolling, zooming, etc., I would propose, as I have previously, using a double tap to enter/exit immersive mode.  Not only would the double tap enable these other actions without triggering immersive, but it would also make it consistent with the Gospel Library app double tap to enter/exit immersive.

It's hard to believe, but Gmail is 10 years old today! At first I thought it was an April Fool's joke, but then it didn't go away on April 2!
I got my invite (remember when Gmail was invite-only and invites were hard to come by?) on June 27, thanks to +Dan Chilton's kindness giving away invites to random people on his blog.
I've moved on from that Gmail account, but I still use Google Mail on my own domain, and will likely for a long time to come!

This is a good one. It's just too bad that people weren't being very good sports.

They were just disjointed that they didn't have an English accent as cool as +Samantha Shelley

My only comment after reading this news is "I wonder when this whistleblower will be prosecuted?"
It seems like it's only a matter of time with this administration's track record.

I really like the new +YouTube channel design. Big beautiful images, channel trailers to help bring subscribers in, and more customization. Plus, it follows across all platforms, including TVs!

Sometimes in life, you're given exactly what you've been told you're gonna get. This is one of those times.

Found my first bug in this new beta release. The New Members report isn't showing anyone, even though there should be a few members listed, and they do show up properly in LCR on LDS.org. I cleared the app data, and tested this on all 3 of my Android devices - with the same result.

This will be an incredible update once the bugs are worked out though!

Probably a permissions issue, then. Works fine for me as a ward clerk.

"'Imagine that the Secret Service left the front door of the White House unlocked, forgot to turn on the security system, and then it was discovered that the entire protection detail had gone out to a bar, leaving the president completely unprotected,' says Green. 'That's the analogy that I would give to this particular bug.'"

Did you know that Google Play Music has a free song every day? And that today's free song is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen?
