Ratings and Reviews
I love this app
I use this app daily for the Daily Readings, Reflections and for the rosary apps. It has helped my prayer life immensely and has helped me to be less distracted in prayer although I still struggle. I also like the Saints of the Day and I am always amazed how many saints there are that have been recognized by the Church. I use other features also but less frequently. The only thing that I wish could be added is that I could go back when I say the rosary. Sometimes I become distracted or do not complete the rosary and there is no way to rewind or go back to where I left off with the rosary. Other prayer apps I have used have this feature and if it is feasible I would hope this could be added to Laudate in the future. Thank you so much for this amazing app!
If it didn't crash all the time I'd like it
The app works great with voiceover. I can give it that. However, when I try to go in to say some 51 in the confessions area it crashes when I try to go into daily prayer in the daily prayer area it crashes everything I try to do on this app it seems to crash I'm going to try to uninstall and reinstall all I click the app support page button here and was taken to a blog I really should've been taken to an email address message set up so I could send my problem to the app developer not their blog 2+ one it with Google yeah I have a Google account yeah I would +18 because yeah I like the app and it's designed for voiceover because it doesn't have very many unlabeled buttons that I've found so far but you should really rethink your app support button and I hope I hope because I had my diagnostic stuff turned on you get my crash logs today you should get my crash logs today if everything goes right I hope you have developers are getting my crash logs so I'm going to uninstall and reinstall and see if it on breaks and I think I'll raise my writing from one start of something else I know this is a long with you and honestly there should be a button that says Catholicism for beginners in the app for people like me I'm not a Catholic I'm just trying to learn about the face and yeah I don't know where to turn so I'm turning here because my friend recommended the app I just hope I find stuff for beginners
Not a reliable Catholic reference
Laudate looks like a great scriptural resource but there are hidden errors. For one it scrapes the text for Liturgy of the Hours from the Universalis web site without giving due credit or explanation. Even removing identification notice from the Universalis page.
Far worse, Laudate uses text from an unreliable Blog page for commentary on the Daily Readings of Sacred Scripture. There have been several instances of the Blogger inserting accolades to famous politicians and celebrities under the guise of being “fruits” of the works of some Saint. But these noted persons are not Catholic, do not lead exemplary lives and in fact many of them are immoral, atheists, and support abortion. Who is this Blogger? They are not identified in their Blog site. No indication of their religious affiliation, qualifications for scriptural commentary nor which parish or organization they are affiliated with, if any.
This pattern of errors and lack of transparency and authority is a grave danger to those seeking a resource for learning about and worshipping with the true Catholic faith. Please use Universalis app or web page directly or many other apps such as iBreviary that use reliable Catholic sources. And they will clearly identify those sources and give due credit and/or permissions.
