5 YR UPDATE: I can't believe after 5 years of "development" this app has not gotten any better. This app is still an embarrassment to the LCMS. Come on CPH. It's depressing to see the current state of digital development at cph. This app is unreliable, and looks and functions dated. I can't possibly imagine using this in a service, where I am relying on it to work. Scripture references do not always work when clicked on. Navigation has not been thought out. It's embarrassing to the LCMS.

Great pastoral resource! I use it every day in my visiting. They fixed the notes feature so I can enter hymn texts that aren't already in the hymn section. The psalm tones are a big hero to me, too, since I enjoy chanting the psalms.
