How would one go about getting iPieta?  Is it expensive?

You have to purchase it from Apple's App Store.  When I purchased it a few years ago, it was around 4 bucks.

Thank you, MundaCorMeum.  I was thinking it would be $20 per month or so--have never purchased an app before.

Nope; once you buy an app, it's yours until or unless it won't function on an upgraded OS. I have apps from 5 years ago that still work, so shouldn't be a problem. What would be a problem is if you went back in OS and an app was written for at least a later version.

Also, you always own the app, even if you delete it from your phone -- it stays in your app store account.

Some apps do have in-app purchases available, but generally they are free apps and the money is made on the in-app purchase. iPieta is not one of those.

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

Right.  Once you purchase it, you have access to everything in the app.  It has a ton of stuff in there, too.  I just looked it up in the App Store, and they have Spanish and French versions for $0.99.  It doesn't show the price of the English version, since I own it, but maybe the cost has gone down?

Looks like it's only $.99 now. I can't remember how much it was when I bought it, back in iOS 5.somehting. Maybe $1.99? The current version requires iOS 7.

Two things. I'm finding iPieta absolutely worthless. Every time I click on something, it takes me back to the 'install' page! And does anyone know of an Android app for the Trad Calendar? I seem to have somehow gotten the NO Calendar from Universalis into my calendar.

I use aquinas138's calendar and just import it into my Google calendar as its own standalone calendar I can enable/disable.

No more apps for me for the moment, thank you stupid 16 gig phone. iMass or whatever it's called remains pretty good, if a mite unstable.

iMass now seems stable enough on my Xiaomi Note 3. The streaming links can be a bit unstable really. There might be fancier apps, but it works fine. Now using a phone as a missal will look more like a bored man messing with his phone, but this app seems a good reference, seems, I don't know for a fact.

Mass for the day which my St Andrew's missal doesn't as it's for 1950 or so, and the 1961 Roman Missal seems to see how much it can scatter everything throughout the missal. Still it might look odd looking at a phone at Mass. Am I bored? It will look so.
