A new Rituale Romanum app for priests and servers

Our friends at LiveMass send us the news of this new smartphone application that will be of great use to priests and servers:

It has been a while since the iMass app has received an update. Complete with making it possible to view Holy Mass, being used as a Missal, as a Breviary, or to view the LiveMass YouTube Channel, there is not much room for improvement. Still, taking the same concept a step further, Fr Fryar has created a new app: iRituale Romanum 1962.

The app provides nearly all the blessings from the Rituale Romanum, in Latin, so that priests can have these readily available when needed.

The app is divided into three sections:

Formulae Brevia - brief forms for emergencies,
Frequenter Data - the most common blessings (for example for the St. Benedict Medal, the Scapular and the Rosary), and
Rituale Romanum - nearly all the blessings from the Rituale Romanum.

The app will be available for free on the App Store as soon as it clears the Apple approval process, which can take about a week.

While it is available for iPhone, an iPad version will be available soon. Also there are plans to work on a version for Android devices.
