iMissal is a great reference application. It was especially helpful for me during the integration of the new translation.
I really like iMissal’s calendar & readings section – primarily because as a music minister, I am often looking for the Gospel Acclamation verse and, to my knowledge, iMissal is the only app I currently have which offers this information.
Also, the fact that wifi is NOT needed to get the calendar and daily readings is a HUGE plus!
iMissal is a solid application that doesn’t come with many flaws at all. In fact, I’d say that the only reason I don’t LOVE it, is because I haven’t given it much of an opportunity to impress me. I primarily use it for readings and the missal when I am serving as a music minister and need certain information; other than that, I haven’t gotten into it’s other features like, daily reflections, prayers, and Catholic news.
iMissal is a great app that is certainly a “must-have” for Catholics on their smartphones. The developers have done a phenomenal job and continue to improve it – which is an important part of a killer app! While it does cost $4.99 – it is easily worth it if you are looking for a reliable and robust app for general missal purposes.
iMissal has been granted an official Imprimatur from the Catholic Church and is approved for use! You will not find a better Roman Missal app available. In addition, iMissal is the only Catholic app of its kind that does not require WIFI/Cellular to access Mass Readings & Missal content!
You get access to Mass Readings for any day of the year. Considering what a printed Missal cost, iMissal is worth well more than charged and includes more than your standard printed Missal.
