The church has kindly asked that all third-party developers cease interacting with as of Sept 29th, 2011. The only app that will work as of this date is "LDS Tools" (provided by the Church). iStake, iWard, and ALL other third party apps that interact with will cease to function on this date. For this reason, iStake and iWard are now -FREE- applications. Both will be removed from the App Store completely the end of September, as requested by the church. We appreciate the support we've received from the LDS community over the years, and encourage you to take a look at some of our other apps that we think you'll find useful (such as Mr. PhoneTree).

What do I need to use iStake?

iStake 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 iStake get my ward and stake directory information?

iStake retrieves your ward and stake directories from the LDS Directory service using your username and password. It will also retrieve your complete ward and stake 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 iStake need to know my area code?

Your ward and stake 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 and stake members incorrect?

The information on each member of your ward and stake is maintained by your ward and stake membership clerk through the church MLS system. Your ward and stake clerks have the ability to update and modify this information via the computer in the clerk's office of your ward and stake 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.
