Description

You are connected to the world around you with e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Instant Messaging, and more. Are you connected to God? If you are like most Catholics, it's difficult to find time to pray during your busy day. If you would like to change that, we made iRosary for you. Got a few minutes waiting in line? iRosary turns this into time with God. Built for your busy lifestyle, iRosary works like a traditional Rosary, but tells you the prayers, remembers your place, and is always with you when you need it. NATIONAL MEDIA: The Catholic News Service says: "Need to Pray? Try iRosary" National Public Radio (NPR) featured iRosary on All Things Considered. The United States Council of Catholic Bishops featured iRosary on Catholic Radio Weekly. But don't take their word for how wonderful iRosary is - see the user reviews below! DESCRIPTION: iRosary is an innovative new Rosary for the iPhone and iPod Touch which displays a fully-animated set of Rosary beads that flows across your hand as you move it with your finger, like a standard Rosary. For those new to the Rosary, there is no easier way to learn this perfect prayer which engages the body, mind, and soul, while meditating on the life of Jesus Christ. Those who pray the Rosary regularly will appreciate how closely iRosary resembles a traditional Catholic Rosary. HOW IT WORKS: Just like a classic Rosary. Simply recite the prayer and pull the beads down to advance to the next prayer. It's that easy!

  • Cross at the end of the rosary is up side down

    The apps is great, but the only observation I have is at the end of the last bead finishing the rosary, if you imagine the rosary as a whole you got an inverted cross at the end. It would have been better if we can pull the beads the opposite direction so you don’t have to invert the the cross, because with what it is now, when you finish praying the rosary, you have a cross hanging on the rosary invertedly.
  • What a Beautiful Way to Pray!

    Thank you for creating this aesthetically and spiritually beautiful iRosary app! It’s especially great for people like me who often get so wrapped up with our smartphones that we forget to stay connected with Our Lord and His Compassionate Mother. The visual beauty and user-friendliness of this app makes it a joy and a blessing to maintain a practice of daily prayer. The only thing missing, IMHO, is a musical option. I usually put on some soft meditation music while I pray (using a separate music app) to help me focus. It would be nice if iRosary offered an option for in-app music - either quiet instrumental or Gregorian chant, etc. But that’s just a suggestion; iRosary remains wonderful just as it is.

    I too think this is a great app, but would love audio with it.....references to bible verses for the mysteries would be nice too. All in all great though. Helps me focus! Thank you!

    I find this app to be very helpful. I love the artwork. It helps me to stay focused on the meditation of the life of Jesus. This app makes it easy to pray anytime, anywhere with or without a rosary. There is one thing I would like to see updated. I would like to be able to click on the daily mysteries at the bottom of the home page and have the artwork enlarge so that I can meditate on the mystery while praying with my own rosary but without having to tick through the rosary on the app (I hope that makes sense). Once enlarged, the Fruit of the Mystery could be displayed on the top or bottom of the picture. This is why I gave the app four stars instead of five. Otherwise, this app is a beautiful and helpful tool to have at home and/or on the go.
  • Thank you!

    There’s so much to be distracted by on my iPhone. This app is the one app that helps me put the focus on what matters most in life: humility, hope, joy, loving my neighbor, repentance, trust in God ...
  • Very nice

    I will use this to teach the Rosary to my little daughter. Wish I could customize the beads and Crucifix - Celtic or Jerusalem Cross Center Piece with olive wood beads. It’s really great that this app has virtual beads though. Very much appreciate this attention to detail.

    There are times when I am out, away from home, or otherwise in situations where it is inconvenient to carry my rosary. This app makes it so easy to be able to devote myself in prayer, keeping my place, and helping me stay focused. I like the images, the ability to shift the beads to either side and customize their appearance, but most of all I appreciate the ability to have this at my fingertips. An inspiring and meaningful story behind the creation of the app. May God continue to bless you, Dave, Jackie and Isabella.
