A must have for Catholics

Torin Gray

This app is full of wonderful content. Rich in information, wonderfully produced, it will deepen the faith of any who take advantage of this resource. The app is a little buggy at times, but my biggest suggestion is that they make an Apple TV app.

Love the content! Please support Apple TV

My daily journal

I am learning a lot and deeply appreciate the content on Formed. Please consider an Apple TV app to make it easier to watch on the big screen. Thank you for all you do!

The app is great with wonderful content. It just need Chromecast support so I can send the videos to my TV and watch them. Implement that and it’ll be perfect.
