Obituary is an app that allows you to read obituaries from thousands of papers across America and the rest of the world.

Our beautful interface provides the best way to browse, read, and share the stories of your beloved friends and family who are no longer with us.


By organizing thousands of newspapers into gorgeous menus categorized by location you will be able to find the stories you want much faster than searching the internet or papers. Each paper provides a brief preview of the obit, the ability to read the entire obit, share it through Facebook, twitter, or email, and even favorite it or write a comment.

We also provide highlights of the most recent Obituaries of celebrities and other highly accomplished individuals.

We are most proud to honor those that have fallen in the line of duty by providing a tribute to those heroes who have given their life defending their country.


Many of us read the obituaries so that we are aware of old friends or distant family members that have passed. With a touch of a button you can share the story through email, Facebook, or Twitter so that you can make sure their passing does not go unnoticed by family and friends.


We currently are covering obituaries from over thirteen hundred of the largest newspapers in America, Canada and England. Below we have included a list of some of the newspapers we cover, but our current newspaper coverage is to large to list in this description so we have included a link at the bottom of this description to our full coverage.

Customer Reviews


I have used this app for a while & recommend it. It has sections that make it easier to find someone. However, although this is the first mistake I found, I wonder if there are more, therefore the 4 stars. Under celebrities you have 2 different photos as well as 2 different times. & dates for "Babe" Heffron of Easy company from WW2- Sad to hear of his passing, but what date is correct? 12/3 or 12/4 & what time? This is a huge mistake. & please correct it for the family. & history of a great man who served his country-thank you

Great for family tree research

Just downloaded this app and already have found obits for distant family members. This will be a great tool for expanding my family tree. It's easy to use. There are a lot of big city newspapers along with local papers included. You are able to search for specific people which is what I'll primarily do.


A good app when it works. I have been unable to access it for the last few days as it reverts to my iPad home pages when I try to access a paper.
