The General Conference Youth Department has made the PDF files available to keep track of the Encounter Series reading necessary for Master Guide, PLA, PIA.

Simply scroll to the bottom of the page and follow the links!

What would be really cool is if these checklists were interactive and provided links to the reading material. I know that the EGW portions are available online, and the Bible portions are as well. A user's checklist could be maintained a couple of ways.

The simplest would be with a cookie. A 92-digit hex string would encode yes/no for 365 checkboxes. No login or database required. The downside is that your checkboxes could not follow you around from device to device.

For that, a login/database would be required, and once that's introduced, other features become possible as well, such as daily email of the texts, or optional notification of progress to whomever is mentoring you for MG/PLA/PIA. I think podcasting this as audio would also be super helpful.

Maybe I'll work on this when I have time.

I love the way you think....that would be VERY cool.

I've considered attempting to build an iPhone app to do that kind of thing...have never built an app, but hey, I like to learn....

Let me know if you start...I have so much "catching up" on the NAD Dept websites to do that it will be some time before I can get started on such a project.

Other projects for iPhone apps I'd like to do:
Honor Requirements
Encounter series
Bible Reading for the Investiture Achievement levels (Classwork)
Quizzes and info app/module to learn the history of Pathfindering
etc.
