Laudate includes many awesome resources such as an interactive Rosary, Daily Readings, the Liturgy of the Hours, the Roman Missal changes, and the NAB and Douay-Rheims versions of the bible – all in a simple to navigate layout. But what makes this app shine for me is the HUGE selection of prayers – in both Latin and English!

They are sorted into intuitive groups such as the “Marian Group” and “Mass Group” and you can even create your own folder of “My Prayers” to easily access your favorites. The font size and color scheme are customizable, and there are six language options.

The developers are also constantly updating this app, providing a huge selection of up to date, bug-free content.

While Laudate has so many resources, this means that some resources will be less than useful or appealing. The Catechism from St. Charles Borromeo and the Liturgy of the Hours both display web-content in the app, which makes for a harder to read interface. And both versions of bible require a web connection and are not searchable, making scrolling through chaptersthe only option for browsing. These “cons” aren’t major issues, however.
Laudate is a fantastic single-source app for a variety of Catholic needs. But what makes this app truly shine is it’s price-tag: free. There’s no excuse not to download this gem, even if it’s just for the prayer content. There is so much available for the faithful smart-phone user that I recommend it to everyone. And once you download it, you’ll definitely find it to be an important tool in your Catholic app arsenal.

    • I love this App. Do you plan to make this available for Windows?
      It would be great if you did.

    • Love the app!!! When you did the update last week, My Prayers lost all spacing. When I go into edit, the spacing is correct but it is incorrect on the saved page.

    • I have so enjoyed your steaming podcasts for daily meditation. The daily readings and Gospel have become clearer through the meditation podcasts. Unfortunately I am once again receiving error messages. The podcast stoppef streaming. I’m hoping you can repair this problem. This is the 4rd day that I have been unable to listen and meditate. Thank you for your attention to this request.

  2. Great app. Is is possible to download to a laptop? Thank you and God bless you on your work.

    • Unsure Christopher – try their website: http://ayckasoft.blogspot.com

      • I’ve checked Aycka’s website. I have not found an app for my MacBook Pro. There’s
        iTune apps for the iPhone and iPad.

  3. Does this app. available for the new Windows 8 cell phone?

  4. please can you make available on pc platform and for java mobile
    God bless
    Naresh

    • please do so

      • Please download blue stacks software , that runs android APK files on PC

  5. It is so sad this has changed to pre Vatican 2. It was a great app now right wing has taken over. Hard to find daily readings just hate radio type stuff. I'll find a someplace news. Like many others and you wonder why the churches are empty.

    • The new version of the app has all of the Vatican II documents?

    • Don't confuse "Laudate" with "LAUDATE DOMINUM." Sounds like you were looking at the latter.

    • Right wing? What is that supposed to mean? You mean the teachings of the Catholic Church, such as pro-life, pro-family, pro-traditional marriage?

  6. LOVE THIS APP. USE IT EVERY SINGLE DAY WITHOUT ANY HICCUPS. LOVE HAVING IT AT MY FINGER TIPS FROM THE DAILY READINGS, TO THE INTERACTIVE ROSARY, TO THE DAILY REFLECTIONS. USE THIS APP!

  7. I love this app. It has everything and I use it all of the time. On my android phone I can always get connected and so I have the Bible, the Catechism and the UCCB web site always available as well as the prayers and rosary. How about a Nook version?

  8. This app is fantastic! It has so much packed into it. It has improved my prayer life tremendously. I'm not quire sure what Tim is complaining about. The daily readings is the first choice listed. I love all the podcast options and often listen to the daily readings and meditations with my earphones before getting up in the morning. If I can't sleep at night, instead of counting sheep, I reach for my iPhone and earbuds and pray the rosary along with the mysteries and rosary podcast with meditative music, or listen to a meditation podcast. Catechism, Stations of the Cross, Confession preparation, Liturgy of Hours, prayers, prayers, and more prayers. Plus links to so many other Catholic apps!

  10. Absolutely beyond fantastic…I'm so happy to have this app…..

  11. I looooove it and this is the one i am looking for. Everything i need is right on my fingertips . i shared this to my brothers and sister in our community and they really, really love it. Daily reflection is a BIG plus for me. Thanks for creaing this Apps

  12. this app's interface could stand improvement. Should not have to back-screen to select the next screen in the any Sequence — Way of the Cross for instance — the user should be able to swipe to the next screen of the sequence. Also, some of the pages are presented in scale greater that screen fit (Way of the Cross is so off scale as to detract from the effort and it is missing the words to the Sabat Matar which was written for this version of WotC – St. Alphonsus Liguori.

  13. Wow – thanks: a million times thanks for this wonderful app. I only discovered it yesterday so I haven't got around to all the different parts, but what I've seen so far is brilliant – I just had to say how much I appreciate it. May God bless you.

  14. What a wonderful app! Thanks so much for creating and maintaining.

  15. I never had a problem with the Android version of this app …..BUT I just switched to an iPhone earlier this week (major mistake lol)…. anyway I made the mistake of looking at a foot note this morning and when I wanted to back out and return to the page I was reading I was taken to the keyboard and asked to type in my search…

    After more then an hour I still can not get anywhere…close down the app and then bring it up again and I'm back at the keyboard again… THE ONLY WAY I CAN GET BACK is to power the entire phone off and reboot…

    There has to be an easier way..

    • Please double tap on reading pane to view/hide navigation bar.

  16. I, too, all of a sudden am having a terrible time getting back to a previous page, or even the menu. What happened to the "back" button. All I have now is a "share" button. Please fix immediately. I want to be able to use it as well as I have in the past.

    • Please double tap on reading pane, this action shows/hides navigation menu on top of the screen.

  17. I had this app on an Android phone, but I just got a BlackBerry z10 and I can't download the daily reading :(

    • apologized, but Blackberry is quite hard to move android based apps to BB platform. we tried few times and is not working.

  18. Pope Francis has been the Pope for a few months now and there is no mention of him in the reflections and prayers. When will your site be updated?

  19. Great app! It would be great to be able to sync between devices, so get on that!

    • prayers can be exported and reimported and should work between andro and iphones

  20. Yes please make this available for PC. To many useful resources not to be able to use when ever you want them. Thank you

  21. I love this app. But I may be switching to a Windows phone and will no longer have access to it. Can you make it for Windows, too?

    • we are short on resources and right now still there is no considerable windows market share, we will re-eval in the future

  22. This is such a Godsend!! I take this everywhere with me and wake up to the "prayasyougo podcast. It is a beautiful way to begin each day that God gives to us.
    Thank you for making it free! I shared it with my Phillipino friends and they were able to download it in thee native language. Awesome! God is good!!

  23. What an awesome app. I love it and used to have it and use it on my Android phone before. I have changed my cell to Windows 8 and hoping that you could make this app available for Windows 8 too. Is there any plan to make it available for Windows 8? Thanks

  24. I have downloaded Laudate tIphone 4S. Both tiwice from the App Store to my Iphone 4S. Both times the "morning prayer" in the Liturgey of the Hours is BLANK! How to fix?

  25. i love this app thnx for sharing detail about this app
    download free paid apps

  26. What’s the logo of the app?

    It looks cool, but what is it? What does it mean?

    • It's the Chi Rho – monogram formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters chi and rho (ΧΡ) of the Greek word "ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ" =Christos. The two letters A = Alpha and Ω = Omega, on either side, are the first and the last letters of the Greek alphabet and evoke the Biblical verse referring to Jesus:"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." (Rev. 22:13).Also known as Labarum, it's a Christian symbol found in ancient catacombs, on early coins, the Roman military banner of Constantine, etc.
      Perfect logo!

      • Forgot to add that "Laudate" is Latin for "Praise" (in the plural imperative, I believe). Very appropriate for the site, I'm sure you would agree!

  27. Ilove this app, I use it for everthing, look up Bible verses, pray the rosay both ways with podcast (which provides me with a peaceful rosary prayer). I have shared this app with our parish priest and they love it. I also read our Sunday's reading while at mass and I can follow scripture very well. I recommend it to everyone. May Our Lord continue to give our Catholic Faith strength to continue it's good works.

  28. I love this app! As a new Catholic, this has been instrumental in my daily growth in my faith!

    • Welcome home, Janness!

      God bless you and may you keep the Faith!!!!

  37. This app will not stop playing a daily recording from my iphone into my hearing aids. it cuts off phone communication of people talking to me and I need my phone for BUSINESS. PLEASE ASSIST ME WTTH THIS MATTER!!!!!!

  38. Fantastic app. Being a member of the Secular Franciscan Order (SFO), I’m thrilled that it includes some prayers distinctive to the Franciscan community. Might I be so bold as to ask that you also consider including SFO alternate forms of the office and non-liturgical offices, like The office of the Twelve Our Fathers, Office of the Passion, The Office of Praise, The Office for a Change of Heart, and the Office Prayed with St. Francis?
    Could you also consider including the Prayer of Love by St. John Vianney?
    Thank you so very much for such a super app.
    God bless and keep you.
