You are connected to the world around you with e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Instant Messaging, and more. Are you connected to God?
If you are like most Catholics, it's difficult to find time to pray during your busy day. If you would like to change that, we made iRosary for you.
Got a few minutes waiting in line? iRosary turns this into time with God. Built for your busy lifestyle, iRosary works like a traditional Rosary, but tells you the prayers, remembers your place, and is always with you when you need it.
The Catholic News Service says: "Need to Pray? Try iRosary"
National Public Radio (NPR) featured iRosary on All Things Considered.
The United States Council of Catholic Bishops featured iRosary on Catholic Radio Weekly.
But don't take their word for how wonderful iRosary is - see the user reviews below!

What's New in Version 3.3
Support for iPhone 5
German Language prayers
Full landscape mode support
Added the Prayer to St. Michael
Just what I needed
The layout of this app is user friendly and easy to use. My only suggestions for future updates would be to include audio and The Act of Contrition. E
Various other languages like Italian, and Polish should be added to the prayer languages. Also, more bead selections. When the app was first updated, I think I remember some of the artwork changing. As such, maybe have an option to pic artwork for the mystery would be a nice touch
Well done & easy to use
Prayed the rosary as a family when I was growing up. This app is a great refresher for me and aid to help me teach my family the rosary.
