If you want to learn about the history of the Rosary, we have a full section devoted to just that. There is also a section detailing the proper way to pray the rosary in 10 easy steps if you prefer the written word. The 7 benefits and 15 promises of praying the Rosary are also shown.
In the settings menu, you have the option to change the spoken/written language to either English or Spanish.
What's New in Version 2.9
Fix audio pronunciation of blessed and Pontius Pilate by recording a new voice. General bug fixes.
Previous voice is now named "Brother", new voice is named "Grandfather". If you prefer the previous voice, you can change it back by tapping the "Audio" settings tab.
Wonderful App, needs minor tweaks
As someone else said, this app was created with a lot of love! I love the fact that you can have either Gregorian chant or the Ave Maria as background music. I love that you can set the speed, and that you have two voices to choose from. In addition to the Holy Rosary, this app includes the Divine Mercy chaplet and the St. Michael chaplet; this is a nice touch. I find that it remains "open" (it doesn't go dormant), during the duration of the prayers, even if you're not touching it; that a very nice feature. I have two recommendations/suggestions:
1) You already have beautiful images, depicting each mystery, scrolling across the bottom of the screen, but these are not the images we see as we pray the rosary. Adding them to each mystery, would be a beneficial meditative aide.
2). You have beautiful scriptural meditations before each mystery; however, these are not voiced, which is a shame. Lots of times, I pray in the car, I can't stop to read the meditation.
I would very much appreciate it if you would make these changes, that way, this awesome app could be rated 5 stars!!! Thank you and God bless you!!!
Best rosary app I've had
I've had, over the years, several rosary apps. Enjoying the audio for more introspection, while on the road and its conveniences I downloaded this bundle and found it to be my favorite (audio is best I've had as well included). It's clear, concise and well thought out (for me). After each mystery I've enjoyed a little pause for reflection not found on other audio versions I've had. The voices are calm, soothing and promote deeper connection for me as well. Thank you for what's become a daily use app as I watch my own life unfold and benefit from the promises. (Also included in the app with a lot of other things). Clap clap clap clap clap clap clap clap
All his said, (and a former five star rating) just came to a screeching halt. I can no longer run my appt and any other app simultaneously. The website and "help" go to a page that speak of O.tHER apps offered but no way to leave a message, no contact info...nothing. Developers are on vacation all together? No address either. Tried deleting, then reloading but no dice. Sad.
One Major Issue, Some Minor Ones, Good Overall
The app does not remember where you left off if you close the app without finishing the Rosary for the day. This is very inconvenient if your are like me and you recite the Rosary throughout the day instead of in one sitting. Also, app does not run in the background so you can't lock your phone and put it in your pocket. This is annoying because I often pray the Rosary while walking to the metro, as well as on the metro and I do not want to have to hold my phone in my hand. However, putting it my pocket is problematic because it can accidentally switch out of the app since it is not locked. Finally, I wish the audio included a reading of the meditations found at the beginning of each decade. This is a minor inconvenience, but it would be a nice touch.
Overall, the app serves its intended purpose. The audio is great and the background music is a nice touch.
