Traditional Catholic Android app

  • Hi everyone! I created an Android app with the aim of preserving and promoting the traditional aspect of the Catholic faith. I'm no Android expert, but I think the app does the job. Take a look and I hope you like it. Mystical Rose, pray for us!

  • Cool. Downloaded. So it's basically an android front end for divinumofficium.com?

  • Wrapper or front-end programs are lame.

    For example, an app that loads tutorial videos from a website to play them on the app. Unless the content is ALL in the app, offline, it's not a real app.

    Basically, some apps are like yesterday's websites.

    I hope that's not the case for this app.

    I tried to make as much of it offline as possible. Only the missals and Divine Office require an internet connection and are taken from https://www.divinumofficium.com/.
    Initially, I wanted to make that offline too, but it turned out to be a lot of work and demanded knowledge of the Tridentine Rite Calendar throughout the centuries which I currently don't have.
    I agree with you that ideally, it should all be offline, but it is what it is.

  • There is an offline version you can download, but it's rather large IIRC.
