Beads offers one exceptional digital rosary for iPhone

Our Lady of Fatima asked us to pray a Rosary daily. We don’t always have one with us, but we generally do have our cell phones. So why not get a rosary re-imagined for that screen of yours?  Catholicer Beads (Free) Apple re-thinks the digital rosary experience with its elegant 3-D animated user interface and thumb swipe operation like no other rosary app out there! Give it a whirl.

This is a well-designed, very cool Rosary for the particular 2-dimensional use on a phone screen. You will love the elegant simplicity of the animation.

    I’m sorry, but there are much better rosary apps out there. The app has spacey effects, but doesnot even display the texts or the mysteries. I would suggest Rosary Deluxe or iRosary.

    I thought I would give their other app “Liturgia a shot and it will not even run on my iPad.
