Customer Reviews

Better content hoped for

After looking at this app, I hope the content provides thought provoking and challenging information/ideas. So far the there is a lot of Catholic rites/masses. I would hope to see more interesting materials/productions. The primary source seems to be the News VA (not prone to cause people to think about topics) and Vatican Radio; however, I did see a story hidden at the bottom of the list on the moral imperative of gun control (related to an important issue in the USA). App also needs a search feature desperately! I would also like to see them pick up stories from a variety of other Catholic sources such as the NCR and US Catholic.

Three and a half?

I love this app and the content area of the news stories. It is not littered with too many things, but allows you to see where the mind if the Holy See is on a given day or during certain time periods and events. This is important to me as a Catholic.

I do wish that two things were changed about the app.

First off, I often would like to see videos in their original languages. I am English dominant but I also speak Spanish and understand most Italian. On occasion it would be nice to have the option not to hear the dubbed sound, and to listen to the true words of the people speaking. There are so many languages throughout these videos.

Secondly, a search feature might also be very nice.

Small technical problem

The app itself is fantastic! The Pope could not have come up with a better way to help the modern apostle keep up with the universal Church! The only thing I can notice is that there is no sound for the videos that the app contains. If that could be fix it would be perfect!
