App Spotlight – iCatholic


If you’re paying attention to CatholicTV in Boston, you’ll see that they are becoming an amazing media resource that extends far beyond the actual television programming they produce. They have an amazing presence online, a vibrant new social networking community and TWO great iPhone apps.

Their first app launched is the CatholicTV app, which offers you a video version of their daily mass, a lovely daily Rosary from a variety of special places around the world, “What’s New” programming updates, insightful daily reflections, and additional news updates.  If you enjoy viewing the daily mass or praying the rosary with an audio aid, this app will become one of your favorites!

Also new out are their iCatholic Magazine – Mobile iPhone and iCatholic Magazine iPad apps.  These two free apps give you free and easy access to Catholic TV’s great monthly magazine.  Recent versions of the full color magazine are filled with super articles with national interest.  If you’re lucky enough to own an iPad, the iCatholic Magazine iPad is really fantastic on the iPad.

Kudos to Fr. Reed and the entire CatholicTV team for being on the cutting edge of Catholic New Media and Evangelization, and for providing tools for us that make it fun and enjoyable to learn more about our faith!
