Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app is a great way of praying the Rosary, because each Hail Mary is preceded by short scripture verses. These promote meditative prayer; it is easier to keep focused on each mystery.
You can choose between the Knox Bible, the New American Bible, or Douay-Rheims Bible according to your preference.
If you forget which mystery to pray, do not worry because the app will automatically show the correct mystery for each day of the week.
Instead you can manually choose any one of the four mysteries: Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous and pray it as and when you wish.
To give you a better reading experience, it is possible to adjust the font size to display the prayer.
You can continue right where you left off, if you get interrupted, because the app will save the place where you stopped.
If you prefer to have the prayers in Latin, they are also included in the app.
You may wish to disable the Luminous mysteries and can do so from the Settings.
To encourage yourself to pray the rosary more often, there is a daily reminder feature.
If you prefer audio, activate the built-in audio feature or you can also record your own voice or your loved ones while reciting the Scriptural Rosary.
Include your petitions or thanksgiving within the app while praying the rosary with the custom opening or closing text feature.
You can even pray the rosary in a group with friends nearby, the screens synchronize between the devices by way of Bluetooth or WiFi.
The following languages are supported: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Indonesian.
This is a universal app so you only need to download get this app to be used on both iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch devices.
Please pray for the holy souls in Purgatory and for me, as I continue to develop Catholic apps.

Great aid to praying the rosary
This app is a great aid in praying the rosary, especially if you don't have one available. But even if you do the Scripture passages and beautiful paintings help you meditate on the mysteries as you pray. There are also great options like reminders and Latin prayers.
This app is great. I use it all of the time. It is a valuable aid to my prayer life.
