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.

Glad but hoped for more

I'm happy this exists and will probably ask students in my class on Luther to get the app. I'd like to have seen more creative and useful interactivity. What's here is really just page after page after page of illustrated text. They could have done games for help in memorization, links to scripture references that appear in illustration captions, or extras from the Large Catechism, Luther's other writings, other documents in the Confessions, or the scriptures. Tim Wengert's intro is solid. I paid for the in-app extra "Study Edition," which actually includes no study helps. That's just Luther's original intro and other pieces like confession and Luther's prayers, along with, oddly, the wedding and baptismal liturgies from Evangelical Lutheran Worship. Something that really did provide help in studying the Catechism would have made the expenditure worth it.
