Universalis on Android

Posted by universalis on 22 October 2012

A version of the Catholic Calendar application is now available for phones and tablets running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and above. It includes the full Universalis content for the whole of 2012. Please download it, try it out, and let us know what you think.

The app is available on Google Play. Because it contains the whole of Universalis for 2012, we’ve called it “Universalis 2012” rather than just “Catholic Calendar”.

Future developments

We will soon make the application available through the Amazon Appstore.

We will not be supporting versions of Android before 4.0.

We will release the paid-for Universalis app for Android before the end of 2012.

So here is a way of changing the colour of the rubrics. I’ve used Word 2002 for this, but I expect that other versions will be similar.

I’m assuming that you have the Universalis program for Windows and you have copied a page from it by pressing Ctrl+C and have pasted it into a Word document.
