What do I need to use iWard?

iWard should work on any iPhone or iPod. If you don't already have one, you will also need a member login to (You can get one here).

How does iWard get my ward directory information?

iWard retrieves your ward directories from the LDS Directory service using your username and password. It will also retrieve your complete ward leadership directories. There's no need for you to enter anything! You can also refresh or update the directory as often as you like.

Why does iWard need to know my area code?

Your ward directories are entered into the church MLS system by your clerks and uploaded to LDS church headquarters. Some clerks only enter 7-digit phone numbers, and this can confuse your phone if your cell phone number is in a different area code.

Can I copy people to my contacts?

Yes. Open the individual member screen and touch the "Copy to Contacts" button to move that person into your iPhone contact list. You can also call or email them directly from that screen.

Why is some of the information about my ward members incorrect?

The information on each member of your ward is maintained by your ward membership clerk through the church MLS system. Your ward clerks have the ability to update and modify this information via the computer in the clerk's office of your ward buildings. If you believe any of the information in your directory is incorrect, let them know, then re-update your directory when it has been corrected.
