Accessibility Comments

There is only one unlabeled button in the entire app, the settings button. The interactive rosaries and chaplets are not accessible, but I do not think they can be made accessible because you have to follow an order around the screen and the bead buttons change accordingly. However, there are audio podcasts available that you can follow along with and use your own physical beads.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

This is a great tool for Catholics and potential converts alike. I had been looking for an app that had the readings for the day, audio rosaries, and a prayers database. This app provides those things and a lot more. This has become one of my favorite apps. When you attend Confession, you can also make a general list to be said in the confessional. I could go on about how great this app is, but I'll let you try it yourself.

I agree with the comments on this wonderful ap. I've been using it for a couple of years. The update I would give is that when you first install or update it from the app store, some of the icons don't work when you double tap. there is a pop up that evidently occurs when you first update. I don't know what it does but there is a close button in the upper left hand portion of the screen. Once you double tap that button all icons work as they should. I do use the podcast for the rosaries and chaplets. the developers are very good about giving us options when the normal buttons cannot be made usable with Voice Over.

I was not aware of that pop-up. When I installed it, nothing like that happened. I'm guessing it tells you what is new in the app. THanks for the tip.

I installed the app last night because a friend recommended it to me. well when i open just about anything in the app it crashes I have contacted the developer my friend is not having this issue so i have no idea what gives. I had no idea about the enteractive rosaries needing to follow the beads and thats why they were inaccessible. there has got to be a way to make them accessible somehow i told the developer i was going to put the app out here if someone hadn't all ready.
