Catholic Calendar App for Smart Phones?
« on: May 11, 2014, 05:25:46 PM »
Hello. I have a question about calendar apps. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 Android phone. It comes with a calendar app that is linked to my Google and Facebook accounts. It automatically populates all my friends' birthdays and all the public holidays.  I also get the typical pagan junk events like earth day and Cinco de Mayo which I don't care about and can't delete.  Is there such a thing as a traditional Catholic liturgical calendar that populates Holy Days of Obligation and other feast days, Rogation,  Ember, etc.? I'm getting tired of putting them in manually.

SWEET MAN  ;D

Just added this to my google calendar and synced it with my phone widget calendar, now I can see every feast day without having to go to divinumofficium.

I would even venture to add more saints to this calendar to make it even more comprehensive.

if you're on an android device and you're logged into Google, it should do it automatically

Thanks. I notice I have weather stuff on the calendar now but not the religious days.
