The Obituary App notifies you of the posting of any obituaries from your selected list of cities or contacts. You can receive alerts for obituaries in the city where you grew up, went to school, worked or currently reside -- as many cities as you wish to follow.

Once you download The Obituary App. You may choose whether to be notified automatically of any new obituary posted that fits your personal criteria. You can also quickly and easily search obituaries throughout the U.S. by name or city or browse through your own feed at your convenience.

No longer do you have to subscribe to multiple newspapers, search the web for death notices in multiple cities or search out funeral home websites to find the obits that are important to you. Many of us rely on obituaries to let us know when a distant family member or friend has passed.

Obituaries are sometimes the only way we learn of fallen soldiers or when our relationships might be affected by a death close to them. The same is true for those we care about in our community. It’s easy, it’s free, it’s valuable information.

I’m a pastor and this app is very helpful. I can access needed information in seconds on my iPhone. Thanks for a job well done!

Limited cities

This app has a limited amount of cities. The medium and small cities that I wanted weren’t available.
This app also wants your birth date to open an account. You have to scroll through the calendar to find your birthdate so the older you are the more scrolling you will have to do.

Developer Response ,

Sorry for the inconvenience, your feedback has helped us in improving the application.

Search is fixed now and you can search from all cities of United States. A simpler Age Picker will be included in the next release.

We'd love to hear more about your experience at

I don’t like not being able to see the whole name
