The Catholic App currently covers the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh and the Diocese of Motherwell (in Scotland). Any diocese in the world which subscribes (ask your official diocese representative to express interest using this link: http://thecatholicapp.com/#EOI and we will work with them) will appear in the app.
The Catholic App is your personal companion that guides you spiritually and helps you to live a Catholic life. This app:
* Helps you find Holy Mass and Confession times which are soonest and closest to you, with the tap of a button. This works even without Internet access and is perfect for both cities and the countryside.
* Enables you to plan your visit to Holy Mass or Confession for days or weeks to come. Type any location or address in the covered area, at any time within 30 days, and instantly see Mass and Confession results for that time and place.
* Gives you a weekly spiritual inspiration. You have full control if and when these appear.
* Allows you to see Mass & Confession results either in a list view or visually on map.
* Allows you to be able to see the language of the Mass or Confession.
* Navigates you to the chosen church using integrated Google Maps navigation, with a single tap on the navigation icon.
* Allows you to report incorrect or missing Mass/Confession times using the menu, as well as provide feedback.
* Fully works in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese & Polish
* Has an advanced news distribution component which allows dioceses and parishes to launch their own news channels inside the app (several channels are already live). The news channels do not ask for any person information, nor do they require any social media account and a user can subscribe to the specific channels they are interested in.
* Dioceses can save money and the environment by digitizing paper leaflets, e.g. parish newsletters, so that they appear inside their news channel as PDF files. They can even be read in “church mode”, without Internet connectivity.
* Dioceses can use the PDF news items for fundraising, by embedding the appropriate links in the news items
