Reviews of Universalis

  • I love the “comprehensiveness” of Universalis

    This is, hands down, my favorite app - all the way to the monthly e-mails I get letting me know of any updates and changes. Thank you to all who obviously work so hard to make this happen and that you make the readings so pleasant to listen to. Lately I’ve been praying the Liturgy of the Hours with Universalis rather than with the “American” version I’ve used for years and it’s SO beautiful! Thank you all again! (P.S. This is probably one of maybe three times I’ve ever given a five-star rating for any app ever!)
    May God bless you as you spread the light of Christ-
    Mary M
  • Who would have thought…

    Although definitely not the same as praying with the community it does the job in light of its portability. I’ve been using Universalis for a number of years. It’s been a great help in keeping me focused on taking a few moments during the day to stop and reflect.
    This app is especially helpful in that I can take it with me anywhere. There are those times where carrying a book around is impossible
  • Much better than iBreviary

    Unlike early editions from years ago, all the antiphons and prayers seem to be exactly according to the official breviary.

    This app has completely downloaded all the prayers and options, so you don’t need a regular Wi-Fi connection to pray the office.

    My only annoyance is that the drop-down menu to switch between hours (e.g. from vespers to compline) is in the same place as the iOS switch windows dropdown, which makes it easy to hit the wrong button. That’s rather annoying, but my only complaint.
