Catholic Apps for Android phones

I have updated with a new post on this topic

One thing people like me who have Android phones (in my case the Tmobile G1 [aka HTC Dream]) is the lack of Catholic Apps compared to the iphone.

Well, some have come onto the Market.

The first and the oldest is the Ibreviary. This app has the distinction of being the only app for both the Android and the iphone that is approved by the Vatican. The Ibreviary is the brainchild of Fr. Paolo Padrini, it contains the daily readings and the daily office as well as a variety of Prayers in several languages.



The second and only other app is the Sincereprayer app from mlabs. It is a very sleek and well put together app. It contains a rosary, a prayer journal and links to the USCCB website, daily podcasts and readings as well as the ability to add your favorite prayers or write and integrate your own.

The block codes on this post can be read with the barcode scanner app, to download the programs.

iMissal is now available for Android as well. This is one of my favorite Catholic Apps and it doesn't require WIFI for the Mass Readings

The problem with iMissal is that it's a paid app, thanks for this! Hope u can share more Catholic apps :)

Hi thanks for Sharing a great information on these two catholic apps. For those who faithfully pray the Divine in Office throughout the day, iBreviary may be an app of choice. “What I love most about having the these apps on my iPhone is that I can pray anywhere, anytime”. So if I get somewhere early or have some time waiting for an appointment, I can pray part of the office with a couple of clicks. Love this blog.
