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!

For the next update !
It'sbecome obvious that the design department won't listen to suggestions by users that will improve operations of this app. People saying this prayer will have varying skill from those learning and to those who already know this prayer. And this is why this app only get one star for the moment. Adding more bead selection or crucifix is not going to improve the app. But if you add the suggestion below then it shows you people do listen and respond.
First order of task, when users touch the rose on the top right, the second "tap turns off" prayer scroll. So image become full view instead. The image is more important to those that already know the prayer, the prayer scroll doesn't need to be visible for this type of user.
Looking forward to the next update, please don't let me repeat this request it's really becoming redundant. It also starting to show what kind of people you are who created this app. I'm starting to think you're the type of people that see themselves as "my way or the highway!" that's not how competition works, you'll discover the most successful companies in the fortune 500 index are the ones that listen to their customers !!
Great Rosary App
I have been looking for a great rosary app with prayers and content. Well I have found it, the IRosary app not only have the rosary, but the Divine Mercy chaplet. It also has great pictures for meditation and choice of designing your own rosary, which you can switch from left side to right side. Which makes it easy for left handed and right handed persons. Thank you, I will recommend to all our brothers and sisters at church.
Great app! From my perspective, the only thing that would improve it would be if it were available in other languages, such as Portuguese, Italian, Russian Ukrainian and Chinese. I also love the short mediation phrases compiled by Fr. Marie-Antoine de Lavaur. They are available for each mystery and accompany each bead of the decade As far as I’m aware, those mediations are available in at least French and Spanish and would be a great addition to an app that is already very nice.
