The daily landing page in the Magnificat Lenten Commpanion app.

Launching the app brings you to the daily prayer section. Each day you will find morning, evening and night prayers that are abbreviated versions of the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as a Lenten meditation and full text of Mass readings, antiphons and prayers of the day. Selecting the “Order of Mass” tab at the bottom of the Mass page brings you to an index page for a full missal, so you’ll be able to read along with every prayer during Mass.

Extra features you’ll find in the app include:

  • chants to use in your prayer during Lent and Easter, including the Stabat Mater and Regina Caeli
  • Stations of the Cross
  • Lenten penance service
  • poetry
  • an alarm function for morning, noon and evening that you can customize to alert you to your scheduled prayer times

This app is for iOS only and displays beautifully on both iPhone and iPad. It sells for $1.99 in the App Store.
