Pros and cons of iMissal Catholic (Mass Reading, Calendar, Lectionary) app for iPhone and iPad
iMissal Catholic (Mass Reading, Calendar, Lectionary) app good for
I will definitely recommend this app for peoples who believe and thrust God for a daily meditation. Just let the program read aloud the mass for you and you will instantly join the whole Christian community.
I like this app making regular use of the daily verse and the lectionaries
It needs to have support for countries other than the USA - then it will be perfected.
Use it every day. Very good.
The only comment is the background on the Saint of the day makes it very hard to read the name. This is when initially opened at the top. Recommend using a lighter background and/or darker text. This is especially evident in low light situations.
It would be nice to see the letter M on the calendar for memorials and OM for optionals (maybe). Really like the reading... Clear and not overdone.
Excellent app perfect for daily mass prep. Could make version for other countries to follow . Not sure if the readings are the same in every country.
Some bad moments
Makes me sick how you guys are sending everyone spam for your stupid vote, buy the way its obvious that you are cheating as all other apps which are way better have like 3 % and you guys 45 this is not catholic at all and I dont know why I should vote this outdated app in any way all other ones are being updated with new features recently and only cost half the price if anything.
Ipieta gibt es jetzt auch auf deutsch für meine deutschen Brüder !!!!!!!!
Nice graphics but too expensive the is a better app called ipieta has everything this one has and loads more and the best thing is cheaper I dont understand why these suposed to be Catholics but greed over faith shame one you
I like the idea behind the app but there is too much "fiddling" around during Mass to find the correct readings. The app is date sensitive so the collect, communion prayer and closing prayer need to be in the proper place of the app. Also there has to be a better way to find the Eucharistic Prayer that is being used. The way the app is set up i generally take most of the time locating the one being used and a lot of the time the one the priest is using is even in the app. I have this app on both my iPhone and iPad and dont use either one the hard copy is still by far the best. I do like the other parts of the app - Saint of the day, prayer of the day and the bible quotes but rating the Mass portion I give it no stars. Too bad because it is a great idea but not user/Mass friendly..
Unfortunately I still cannot rely this e-version of the missal for accurate readings or order or service on Solemnities and Feast days. The new version updated Oct 4/13 now has all the readings for week 10 of ordinal time for the next many weeks. The developers do not seem to properly check what they are publishing is accurate. If I cant see the actual daily readings because they are listing the wrong weeks, then what is the point of the missal. This missal would replace my print version if and when I could ever trust it. Has potential, but they need to ensure their before this app can ever be taken seriously. I have had the app for 2 yrs, and the ongoing issues remain the same despite heads up to support. Not worth paying for something thats not accurate.
When I updated my app to the newest version on my iPod Touch Version 6 it crashes and does not open. Will there be a fix to this problem?
This app supports iOS 7 but doesnt work well on Apples latest devices. No support iPhone 6 or 6 Plus resolutions. I guess the 7% that still use iOS 7 matter more than the 93% who are trying to use this app with updated software.
Update: Still getting message "video for this date either hasnt been posted yet or is no longer available " on any and all dates I select~
The mass videos will not work. They worked in the past. Now, no matter what date I choose, I continuously get message Error Loading Content or WIFI connection is currently unavailable" My WIFI is connected. Very frustrated. Please fix. Update 1-6-16: Gives message no Video available. Again,no matter what date I choose. This has been ongoing for approx. 3 years.
and other. So, download free iMissal Catholic (Mass Reading, Calendar, Lectionary) .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
