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.

Great Rosary App
This is a wonderful way to pray the rosary. It is easy to use and has several features that help you pray more deeply and efficiently. The scriptural verses help you to focus on each mystery so that prayer doesn't become repetitive responses uttered mechanically. I usually find that the connections I make with the verses differ each time I say my beads. I also love the short dedication prayer before each decade because it adds to the experience of saying the rosary. Because I use the reminder feature, I get daily notifications to remember to say my rosary. The artwork is another thoughtful and beautiful aspect of this app. All in all, this is a wonderful app that helps develop, maintain and reinforce your faith life and at the same time helps you to pray more thoughtfully.
While I’m not a huge fan of the robotic sound of the voice, this APP allows so much more contemplative prayer it is mind boggling.
I listen to this and am able to close my eyes as see what is happening while praying. I can almost take a bird’s eye view of the Annunciation, the Baptism in the Jordan, the Garden of Gesthemane, the Resurrection. It’s wonderful, painful, joyful, and so full of anticipation for the time we are united with the Holy Trinity, Mary, Joseph, all the Angels and Saints and our families.
Thank you for such a great APP, I think the only thing I would change is that if it were possible to mix up the Bible verses if it’s possible. Take things from other Books if it is possible.

Great help for saying the Rosary
I used the scriptural Rosary long before it was an app, (I had the little blue and white book!)so I was very pleased to find this version of it. It is very user-friendly and comes with all of the prayers to accompany the Rosary that you need. There is a choice of languages too. I used the Spanish with my mother-in-law. She found it very comforting. One change that might help is that the read-aloud function sounds robotic and needs to be fixed. I don’t use it, but for those that do, I imagine this is really annoying. Maybe get an actual person to record the readings and prayers? Anyway, I love this app. It’s been very helpful to me.
