This app is a great way of praying the Rosary, because each Hail Mary is preceded by short scripture verses. These promote meditative prayer; it is easier to keep focused on each mystery.
You can choose between the Knox Bible, the New American Bible, or Douay-Rheims Bible according to your preference.
If you forget which mystery to pray, do not worry because the app will automatically show the correct mystery for each day of the week.
Instead you can manually choose any one of the four mysteries: Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous and pray it as and when you wish.
To give you a better reading experience, it is possible to adjust the font size to display the prayer.
You can continue right where you left off, if you get interrupted, because the app will save the place where you stopped.
If you prefer to have the prayers in Latin, they are also included in the app.
You may wish to disable the Luminous mysteries and can do so from the Settings.
To encourage yourself to pray the rosary more often, there is a daily reminder feature.
If you prefer audio, activate the built-in audio feature or you can also record your own voice or your loved ones while reciting the Scriptural Rosary.
Include your petitions or thanksgiving within the app while praying the rosary with the custom opening or closing text feature.
You can even pray the rosary in a group with friends nearby, the screens synchronize between the devices by way of Bluetooth or WiFi.
The following languages are supported: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Indonesian.
This is a universal app so you only need to download get this app to be used on both iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch devices.
Please pray for the holy souls in Purgatory and for me, as I continue to develop Catholic apps.

This is a really nice app. I have several rosary apps and use them all. This scripture app is well done, but the digital reading isn't as nice as listening to a human voice. Some words are not pronounced correctly in the context of the reading and the richness of a professional voice is not there. You can make your own recording to use, as there is a microphone provided, but I would prefer a professional. One of my apps has it, but it isn't scriptural. That said, I can still recommend this for walkers/runners who want to say the rosary while being active.
Love this App...
This app makes praying the rosary much more complete. I get so much out of it. The addition of appropriate pictures helps me focus. I like the way the prayers are organized and I like the way you can add the people you want to pray for to the text and it is announced out loud. That way you are not going to leave anyone out.
Thank you for developing this app.
Beautiful way to pray each Hail Mary with purpose and intent. It keeps my mind from wondering off--each bead becomes a call to return my mind to the joy of contemplating Jesus and his life, his words and his works. The visual focus helps ward off distractions. Thank you!!
