This app went from really great to absolutely fantastic with the latest update! The developer has really taken this app over the top with a even more clean and clear layout. It simplified the interface and gave it a new modern feel. This is a great Catholic Prayer book to have handy on your phone. It has loads, and loads, (did I loads, because it has a LOT) of Catholic prayers.
This is a great app. Everything is so clearly organized. Using the search feature was really great, that was a smart addition to this Catholic app. It was incredibly simple to type in ‘Wife’ to find a great prayers for my spouse. Search for “Eucharist” and it brings up 90 English prayers. One of them was the Chaplet to the Mother of the Most Holy Eucharist, I have never heard of this prayer before.
The instructions for these prayers are very simply written. I found that I could follow them easily. For example on this Chaplet to the Mother of the Most Holy Eucharist, It gave me the prayers for each of the beads. For example:
“Before each decade, on the large bead, say the following prayer:
Haily Mary, O Mother of the Most Holy Eucharist,
help me to believe completely,
help me to love completely,
help me to life what I believe
and love completely”
See! Very easy to do, and very easy to pray.
I added a few to my favourite list. And a big feature is that is UNIVERSAL, so it works on my iPad without being ‘stretched’, it is set up perfectly for the iPad.
Some of the other paid apps I have used lacked in the graphics department, especially when the app has so much text. This one didn’t! It was organized really, really well.
If you have had a great experience with this app, let me know. I’m giving this app full stars for all areas.
This app was last updated in 2012, but I didn’t have an issue on my iOS 9 iPad 3.
You can see in the screenshot below that it has all of the features you would expect from a modern Mobile app. Once you are viewing a prayer, ANY prayer in the app, you can swipe from the right or press the menu button at the top of the app. At this point you can do a mulitude of things:
- Add it to your favourites list;
- Find related prayers;
- Read translations (if you have them);
- Share it to any of your devices sharing portals;
- Print the prayer (great for teachers, Catechists, religious education coordinators (Religous Ed.);
- Make the font larger or smaller;
- enable the Night mode.
One of the great areas of this app is that it tracks your recent activity, and you don’t have to do anything. When you get to a prayer, it is automatically added to the recents tab of the app.
