The Best Free Bible/Catholic App
No matter what happens in the world of technology and how far it goes in the years to come, there will always be one thing that rises above all else for many – religion. However, that’s not to say that the two can’t become interlinked in some way and we have seen the very first steps of this with Laudate by Aycka Soft. In essence, this is a catholic app about the bible and it is the most popular option on the market so let’s take a look in more detail.
As well as being available in a number of languages including English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, German, Polish, Chinese, and Slovenian, this catholic app also boasts numerous useful features that can be used on a daily basis. Firstly, Laudate has daily mass readings along with reflections and even a ‘Saint of the Day’. Additionally, the app has Latin mass, the American Bible, liturgy of hours, latin liturgy of hours, seven sorrows rosary, Chaplet of Sacred Heart, many Stations of the Cross, and more.
If you have a favourite prayer that you wish to recite, you can even type this into the search bar and the results will show. Although many are in latin, they will also have an English translation for easy reading and reciting. Nowadays, developers know that it is also important to be able to use apps even when offline so the Douai-Rheims Challoner Bible has been included for exactly this.
If you like to listen to podcasts and relax, this will also be an option after downloading because the app boasts many podcasts for daily meditations and rosary. The bookmark feature will allow you to save and store your favourite sections of the app so whenever you wish to return, you can simply scroll down your list of favourites that have been saved over time. If you have both an iPad and an iPhone, there is a section called ‘My Prayers’ that will allow you to store your prayers and move them easily between the two devices.
With the latest update coming in April of this year, the developers still pay attention to the app and update whenever a new feature is to be added or when a problem needs attention. Currently, Laudate requires iOS 6.0 to run efficiently and will work with iPhone, iPod Touch, as well as iPad. Since first being released onto the store, the app has gained millions of downloads and now finds itself as the most downloaded catholic app on the market. When you look at how much detail it has and what it offers the user, it isn’t hard to see why.
In terms of ratings, it has over 2,200 on the App Store coming out with an average of over 4.5 stars. If you’re looking for a catholic bible app, this could just be the one you have been searching for!
