Fun Apps for Catholics

My beloved Blackberry has been giving me trouble over the last week. Saturday I finally decided I needed to let it go and upgrade to an android phone.
Why didn't I do this sooner!!!!!!
Check out my new HTC Sensation

So my new phone of course came with the ability to download applications from the android market. I searched "Catholic" and found some great apps I would love to share.

iMissal - 
Brings me the readings of the day; a daily bible verse; an extensive list of Catholic prayers and an RSS feed of Catholic News. 

Catholic Chaplets - 
The only chaplet I had ever prayed before was the Divine Mercy Chaplet. I was excited to find that there are so many other chaplets I can pray. This app gives also you detailed instructions on how to pray each Chaplet along with the prayers.

Mother Teresaisms - 
Nothing is better then reading a quote from this extraordinary women. If I want to share the quote I have several options: email, text, twitter and Facebook.

Pope John Paul II Quotes - 
Okay this might be better then a Mother Theresa quote. I love Pope John Paul and with this app I not only get to read some of his quotes but I can also view quotes about him. I even have to option to add my own quote sharing how he has touch my life. 

Surviving Depression - A Catholic Approach 
Not necessarily a fun app but an important one for me. I have read a few books and viewed many websites in order to help me get out of this incredible funk. This is the first that I have found that fits perfectly into my faith. I plan to purchase the book and journal that inspired this app sometime soon.  

I've only had my phone for 4 days which means I probably haven't scratched the surface of apps that are available to me. I'm looking forward to finding more and sharing them with you.

Until next time,
