Customer Reviews

Simple and easy to use

Provides easy access to the contents of the small catechism. Performs well too.

Purchased the upgrade

Good app. I got the upgrade but apparently I have get it from the app store every time I restart my phone. It is free but why should I have to get it over and over. Annoying and silly.
