Please Note: This app is "a treasury of saint names, patrons & feasts". It is not an encyclopedic edition on the saints (something that wouldn't be possible for us to offer at this low price). Listings for the thousands and thousands of saints that are included in this app are as pictured (see screenshots). These listings do not contain comprehensive biographies or pictures. Please do not purchase this app and then give it a low rating because it is not an encyclopedia.
Note Re: 'Duplicates': This app contains three (3) types of records: patron saints, liturgical feasts (old & new calendars), and other feasts/martyrology. Although some of the content will necessarily be duplicative (e.g. feasts from the martyrology may also appear in the liturgical calendar, feasts from the old calendar may also appear in the new), this does NOT mean the records themselves are duplicates. Rather, each record stands alone for each record type (note the different icons associated w/each record type). Please do not give a low rating because a certain percentage of records are deemed to be 'duplicates' or ask us to remove them because these records - while they may contain some duplicative data - are NOT actually duplicates. If we were to remove supposed 'duplicates', the app could no longer provide complete listings for each record type.

Needs some work!
A lot of info that is useless, only has ability to email the certain saint. NEEDS TO HAVE A FAVORITE OPTION, TO SAVE IN THE APP ITSELF. I mean
, who really wants to email that many times. Also, doesn't give enough info about the saints. I would luv to see more info to learn more about the saints that I don't know. Very confusing app!!
Thought it would be just a list of saints. Why are there so many that are repeated? Needs a overhall.☝
Love this app for looking up patron saints and feast days. Search feature is great. Lots of saints names which is great for Confirmation candidates and baby names. Does what it says. Great app for us Catholics. Would recommend it.
Waste if money
The app only gives the name of saints & their feast day. How about more info about them & what they did??
