For $1.99, you can have your phone display all of the prayers that you will need to know for the Catholic rosary. The images are beautiful, and it is fully updated with all of the iPhones. Thank you for developers keeping their apps up to date.
Each of the rosary ‘beads’ has a scripture that goes with it, and then the full text of each of the prayers is listed. So even if you are brand new to the Catholic Faith you can pray the rosary with this app.
Who is it great for?
Even the developer knows, that if you have elderly parents or grandparents or visit the elderly in Nursing Homes or Assisted Living Facilities, consider praying this App with them while meditating on each of the scriptural references included, and their images. We were surprised how quickly and easily it was in teaching a child to pray the Rosary or Chaplets for the first time using this beautifully designed App!
Usability and Design
You will notice that I didn’t give this app full stars. Most of the app is touching buttons, and lacks sliding things. On my phone there wasn’t any haptic feedback, like a button ‘tap’ didn’t feel like a tap. I found these things to be a bit behind in development, I hope that the developer continues to update the app. However, the content that this app contains is spot on. We love it, and hope that you do too. Any developer that has been with the app store for this many years, is going to stick around. And we are happy to support apps like this with purchases.
The developer has always kept this app up to date. Updates for iOS 12.x and iPhone XR, XS and XS Max were just the latest updates.
You can see, that the RosaryPlusRD app has great prayer options in the main navigation. Just swipe up or down on the main screen.
- Traditional Rosary, which has the Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious, and Luminous
- Dominican Rosary
- Latin Rosary (Now that is traditional)
- Seven Joys of the Blessed Virgin Mary
- Seven Sorrows of the Bless Virgin Mary
- Divin Mercy Chaplet
- Divine Mercy Novena
- Saint Michael Chaplet
Traditional artwork accompanies the app throughout, and as a convince, if you click on the ‘today button’ you will move to the Rosary appropriate for the day. By touching the arrow at the right of the screens you move forward in the Rosary.
It’s a simple app, but a great app to have as far as Rosaries on the iPhone go.
