How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

I have been looking for a book at my Catholic Bookstore, and they were big, bulky & expensive. Having this application on my FIRE it is always with me. I also find that now when I have a few extra minutes I am drawn to iMissal.

Thanks so much for bringing this app to the Kindle Fire! I now have it on all my devices and so I'm never without it. The video's run without any problems. I have nothing but praise for Cantcha! I hope that you will make Saint A Day available as well.

This app is exactly what I have been looking for. It contains everything I need to fully participate in the mass without going back and forth in the document. This is now the only missal I use. Thanks for a useful product.

4.0 out of 5 stars IMissal - For Kindle Fire HD December 2, 2012
Verified Purchase
Works great. If using during mass with no wifi connection remember to set the date before leaving your house and shut down from the readings page. Otherwise the app will default to the home page which will require you to go to the calendar page to load that day's readings but you will not be able to load the readings because you will not have wifi service.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good app but I found a better one October 7, 2012
By Diane M

This is a nice app but right after I bought it I found a better one that's free.
The ilaudate app has all that this one has plus prayers, the Bible and a daily
audio meditation that is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome for new and returning Catholics December 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was born and raised Catholic but then began to attend my wife's church decades ago. I have been "out of the loop" for a long time, now wanting to return.

Returning to church is all that much harder when your embarrassed over the fact that you simply don't remember what is going on. Some things have also changed over those years.

It can also be stressful as a convert or new Christian, as things happen fast and you get lost easily.

This app is an incredible help with step by step missal including notes. You know exactly what is happening and what it means during the whole mass.

I have noticed other reviews for the free app Laudate. While Laudate would be a fine alternative for up to date Catholics it is lacking the extra notes and pointers throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but has a strong contender January 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
iMissal for KF offers the daily readings with or without audio, a daily Scripture verse with an option to save it as a favorite, a good-but-not-great collection of prayers, and a source for current Catholic news. At the time of this review it does not offer the iPhone/iPad's Saint of the Day option.

It's a good app, but I was recently persuaded to try the Laudate app, and I have to say I think it's better. I don't think it has the Scripture feature, but it offers the same audio for the readings, along with several audio meditations on them, and they are excellent. It also has a superior collection of prayers. Unless you don't mind paying for both sight unseen, I'd try to find friends who have these and check them both out first. I'm inclined to give Laudate the edge at the moment, but iMissal has served me well for almost two years now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, lots of info here. February 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
I really enjoy using this app at Mass, haven't noticed any discrepancies so far, so maybe they fixed the issues. I find I use this for its calendar just as much as the readings as most calendar apps don't have holidays denoted.
One funny thing I did not anticipate is I find myself trying to shield my kindle from fellow parishioners (esp. kids), lest I give anyone the impression that I'm surfing the Internet, playing games or otherwise goofing off in church. lol

This is the only app I found that has the Daily Readings offline so you don't have to rely on having data service to use it. Well worth the price.
