Apple have accepted our Apple Watch apps, and they are in the App Store now!
Universalis is approximately £10.49 / $13.99 / €13.99 from the App Store.
Catholic Calendar is free. So there is no excuse not to have it – and you should tell all your watch-loving friends about it as well.
What the apps do
As far as the Apple Watch is concerned, both Universalis and Catholic Calendar behave in the same way. (The differences come in what the apps do on your iPhone or iPad).
There is a Glance to tell you what the feast or saint of the day is. Tap it to see the Gospel.
The app itself
When you open the app, you’ll see the calendar for the next few days. You can turn the crown to scroll through the list.
If you tap on a day, you will see the Gospel for the day. Use the crown to scroll through the whole text of the Gospel.
As well as the Gospel, you can see the First and Second Readings for the Mass of the day. To get these, press firmly on the Gospel screen, and a menu will pop up. Simply choose the reading you want.
All these pictures are for the bigger, 42mm Apple Watch. If you have the smaller, 38mm, model, then here is what you will see:
