“We have ten different secondhand accounts from people who saw this cave in vision. This app is our effort to visually harmonize and synthesize those accounts with what the Book of Mormon says about all of its source plates.
In the app, readers will see a physical representation of the various plates as recorded in the Book of Mormon. The app will give a basic overview of how each resource contributed to the compilation of what would become our Book of Mormon today. It also includes a representation and description of the sword of Laban, the Liahona, and the Urim and Thummim, with its accompanying breastplate.
Users of the app will be able to interact with these objects and learn more about them through a hands-on experience. The goal of the app is to provide an immersive experience that is both fun and educational. (Griffin, 2019)”
