With over 4,000 5-Star Reviews, we hope that you will agree that iMissal is the #1 Catholic App. iMissal has been granted an official Imprimatur from the Catholic Church and is approved for use! You will not find a better Roman Missal app available.
In addition, iMissal is the only Catholic app of its kind that does not require WIFI/Cellular to access Mass Readings & Missal content! You get access to Mass Readings for any day of the year.
Considering what a printed Missal cost, iMissal is worth well more than charged and includes more than your standard printed Missal.

Awesome app that has been Abandoned
This was a magnificent app that was extremely easy to use and made a difference in thousands of Catholic lives. Unfortunately I can no longer recommend its purchase as it certainly appears to have been abandoned. It has not been updated since OCT of 2015 and while it still has the basic readings, as other reviewers have mentioned it no longer contains any of the updated content for antiphons, Eucharistic prayer, etc. As such the app is rife with error messages. Their Facebook page went stale in May of this year. I do hope I am wrong and they haven't abandoned this project, but it certainly appears so. It was great while it lasted, sure hope someone else can fill the void for this app with a similar product. Thank you for the developers for the years you did support this app, it will definitely be missed.
Update: I discovered at today's Saturday Mass (which for us is an earlier Sunday Mass) that the Missal was very off. While some of the readings were correct, none of the alternate readings were correct and much of the Missal itself was just wrong for today/tomorrow(5/8/16). Can we please get an update that shows all the correct alternate readings?
This app has everything a Catholic needs, almost. It has literary, responses, everything, except for when to stand, sit, and kneel. This may sound like a basic all Catholics know, but for people like me, who are converting, it doesn't help us at all when it comes to these basic things. Add that and I will then 5 star the app.
Great for daily use!
I use this app for daily scripture readings for Mass and Adoration. Combining it with the in-app purchased bible (New American Version) has worked great for reference to the readings if I want more depth. I have used the 'full version' option to follow along with the Mass and have not been disappointed with the accuracy, but I'm not looking for perfection, just an understanding of what's going on. For that purpose, this app works great. If you want a precise and totally accurate Mass version, I suggest buying a print version of the missal or subscribe to a monthly publication (Magnificat).
