Giveaways keep on giving! (more LDS News apps available!)

Just wanted to follow up on the giveaways going on.

First of all, for the LDS News app, I still have two people who have not let me know how to contact them. Please email me!

I also have FOUR MORE apps I can give away. First four commenters will win a free copy. (Please, though, if you want to be considered, be sure there is a way I can contact you -- either leave your email address in your comment, or comment and then send me an email to my address listed in my header.)

Also, if you didn't get a comment into the free food storage giveaway, from Shelf Reliance, you still have this week to enter.

'Nother Giveaway.... (this one for food storage fans)

Since I was in giveaway mode already, I thought I would link to another giveaway (one I would love to enter). If you are into food storage, this would be worth entering -- it's for six #10 cans of Shelf Reliance food products. Not bad!

(Be sure to comment over there and not here.)

MTC protocol changes!

For any of you who has been on a mission and had the ritual send-off experience ("Families, go through that door, missionaries through this door), this story might be of interest to you. Because of swine flu infection at the MTC, they have changed protocol...now it's just going to be a curbside dropoff. And it sounds like it will stay like that.

I wonder if that means parents will dread the MTC experience less or more now. I found it all rather intense to have all that buildup before the final separation. Might be better to just get in and be done with it and let the missionary get on with the exciting journey.


GIVEAWAY! Integrated LDS News for iPhone and iPod Touch

My friend has a brand new product for sale in the iTunes store, and has given me a few freebies to give away. Soooooo...the first five commenters with valid email addresses will get this awesome new product (I will email you a redemption code that will enable you to access your free copy of this application). The quick summary from the info website says:

"LDS News is an RSS news reader supporting feeds from multiple sources plus provides easy access to the three Church YouTube Channels as well as integrated YouTube support for LDS.org Home Page video releases."

The application enables you to choose from 17 different feeds (various news feeds, YouTube updates, daily gems....) The application caches the items you have chosen so they load quickly, and keeps track of what you have already read/watched. You can arrange selected services in the order you prefer. You can also easily email content to others.

More details -- including a list of the 17 feeds available, more screen shots, and the technical features of the application -- can be found here.

Ready, set, GO!
