Favorite & Helpful Catholic apps for your smartphone

Several Brother Knights have seen me use different Catholic apps on my iPhone and have asked what they were. This is by no means all-inclusive and I have no vested interest one way or another in any of these other than being a happy user.  These are iPhone-centric and thus available thru iTunes, but I happen to know that many of them are also available for Android phones.  In no particular order:

Catholic Mass Times Church Directory  (Free)

  - When you're on the road and would like to find a local Catholic church, this can help you find it, tells you the mass times and will even link to the church's website (if they have one.)  VERY useful and user-friendly.

Laudate  (Free)

  - Shows daily readings, Catholic calendar, various prayers, and the New American Bible.  Very useful to follow-along with readings at mass as well as Bible references.

iPieta  ($0.99)

  - Shows daily readings, Catholic calendar, various prayers and the Bible.  Very similar to "Laudate" but I have noticed that the daily readings are slightly different than what we actually read during mass. I like this calendar better so that's why I keep both apps.

Magnificat  (Free)

  - Day by day readings and prayers. You can buy a monthly subscription a month at a time for $1.99. If you get the paper copy of the Magnificat, then you get the electronic version for free.

iBreviary (Free)

  - Daily missal, prayeres, rituals for sacraments; offers much of this in a multi-lingual format. Great Catholic reference.

Pope App  (Free)

  - Official sanctioned app from the Vatican. Presents Vactian media publications, Papal events, photos, videos, texts. Also shows the Holy Father's Papal calendar, live streaming of Papal events, and texts of homilies and speaches.


As you can see, several of these have significant overlap, but some have better user-friendly features than others. Since most are free, the only downside to having all of them is available space on your phone.  Be careful of that since several of them store quite a bit of text (e.g. the entire Bible, etc.) but the upside is that this is immediately available for use even without a WiFi connection.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me or catch me at a meeting.  -- Mike Myshatyn
