*** Augmented Reality! ***

If you're running iOS 11 and one of the supported devices, you can experience the new Augmented Reality (AR) tech that we've integrated into the app. Now you can enter a sacred moment of prayer or meditation with an image of a saint set in a beautiful golden frame along side an ornate candle... standing right there on your own table in front of you! Try it out: it's something special.

The AR feature is available on iPhone SE, iPhone 6s & iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X, as well as on all iPad Pro models and the 5th gen iPad.

You asked, we listened. You can now save a Patron Saint and get quicker access in the Alphabetical listing.

*** iPhone X and iOS 11 Support ***

The app now looks and works beautifully across all modern devices.

It Used To Have Music

Once upon a time it had music. Where is it, now? That’s the only thing that keeps me from giving the 5. I like the idea of using this on my devices...they sort of take me away. Great app...just put the music back, please!

Just downloaded.

This app seems pretty good but I opened up one prayer and immediately saw a typo in the Saint Anthony prayer:
“O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, you love for God and Charity for His creatures, made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers .”

Not a big deal but when I’m reading and see stuff like that it takes me away from the writers intent.

The reading window is also ridiculously small. Why not make it full screen?

I’m unsure if it’s good to ask for saints to intercede for us m. A friend of mine recommended it so I thought I would look into it but I’m a bit fearful and unsure if I’ll do it. Either way, I hope the developers fix the typos and the window size of the prayers. It feels like I’m reading though a keyhole.

Head cut off

What I don’t like about this app is that the image of Saint Raphael is long, and in Augmented Reality you don’t see his head! Saint Raphael is one of my favorite saints because I am a parish member of a church called Saint Raphael’s, so this cut off head of the Saint really bothers me! PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!
