Bring the old version back! I used to love this app until they brought in a new version that crashes every other time you open it. Uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't work anymore. Dates downloaded are not in sequence sometimes. I can hardly use it at all! The old version was easily a 5-star app. This one needs major fixing...
New Evangelization This app helps the New Evangelization proposes by the Church. A great help for those who are always on the move. Now there is no excuses not to pray. PLUS, it's free! [EDIT: Force closes after 19 March update. Please fix ASAP. IT IS HOLY WEEK!] Apr 20: still not working on my phone after several updates. I've sent 3 crash reports so far.
Better, but... The new options for larger text size are very helpful.But: (1) why does pinch-zoom no longer work? (2) As many others have said, when the screen is turned off, the text reverts to the top of the page. And I have lost my place.
Getting better You can now keep your prayer spot when rotating your phone. You still lose your prayer spot if you minimize the app. Also, please have the app use the users time zone when picking the day for the data update. It's 10:30pm CST here and after clicking the update button I get tomorrow's prayers!
Not user friendly I'd give it more stars if this wasn't a new version that is actually worse than what it was before. This new version simply refuses to give me prayers for today. It always moves a day ahead at about noon. Now, it even forces a reload of the next day every time I open the app. It is annoying to have to wait for it to load the wrong day and then have to manually download today.
Before the most recent update, it was pretty good app, although it needed usability enhancements. Recently, a new version upgraded the app with the usability improvements that were needed, however, since the upgrade, the app crashes 99% of the time. It is unusable in it's current state. I look forward to the developer fixing the app so that it's usable. At that time, I will be happy to give it a five star rating.
Please, try uninstall and reinstall app if crashes. Send crash reports to help us.
