Customer Reviews

CRS Rice Bowl, an excellent addition to Lenten traditions

Our family really enjoyed this app last Lent, and we are looking forward to it again this year. The meatless recipes for Friday's were a lot of fun. My children really enjoyed the photos and stories that accompanied each recipe. Seeing where our contributions go and partaking a small part of the local culture makes a difference, esp for children, in getting excited about contributing. Glad to see this app is updated for this upcoming Lenten season.

Excellent with a few bugs

Love this app though it will not let me tweet. It keeps saying set up Twitter account which I already have. Don't find any place to connect app and Twitter. I can retweet from within Twitter but not from app.
