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.

Love, love, love this app
I absolutely love this app. It is my favorite scriptural rosary app when I am really wanting to meditate on the mysteries. It has the fruit of the mystery, artwork, and the name of the mystery is always at the top of the screen so you can refer to it if you mind starts to wonder and you forget.
It also has an audio version and allows you to record your own voice reading the prayers and scripture, which I love. Doing it this way you can then play the audio while you meditate and contemplate the art that is presented at the beginning of the mystery (press play for audio and then press the image to make it stand alone) or follow along with the prayers and scripture!!
I cannot say enough great things about this app. However if you are just looking for a short and too the point rosary this is not for you as the scripture and additional prayers add time and contemplation.
It has helped me to be consistent
I'm really enjoying this app. I've put the daily reminder on it, and it has helped me stay consistent. I love the artwork, and I like speaking along with the audible voice. It has helped me to slow down and keep my attention on the mysteries. Thank you for this app. Only criticism is that I have to really slow it down, and the mispronounced words should be corrected (for example, the voice will say "led" where it should be "lead" as in the Lord's Prayer).
Great Rosary App
I have long loved praying the Scriptural Rosary and with this app I don't even need to have my rosary with me. The art is beautiful and aids in meditating on each mystery. My only small critique is that there are a couple of places where the Scripture passage is divided between two beads and they end the first bead in the middle of the sentence. It then finishes the sentence on the next bead. I would like to end each bead with a complete sentence. Otherwise I love this app and use it often. I highly recommend it.
