I refuse to pay more than 99-cents for an app — normally. Usually, I only download the free ones.
This new Catholic app, “The Mass Explained,” is so brilliant and so useful, it’s not only worth the $25, it’s worth buying an iPad just to have it. How could you justify paying $25 for an iPad app? I’ll get to that in just a moment. First, you need to watch this video:
If this post is starting to sound like a gratuitous plug, it’s not. I really just want to get the word out about this great teaching and learning tool, because I think every Catholic parent and educator needs to see this.
What is the Mass Explained app about?
As the title suggests, it is a look at the Catholic Mass. More specifically, the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. While the 300 page app frequently references the Extraordinary Form (the Latin Mass) as well as the Orthodox liturgy and other rites, its focus is on the Mass with which most Catholics are familiar.
- If you are a catechist, RCIA instructor, CCD teacher, this app is an incredible teaching tool
- If you are looking for an engaging method for your kids’ religious instruction, this is the app you are looking for
- If your group study wants to take on an exciting and new approach to deepening their faith, this app is worth exploring

Plus, they offer a 50% educational discount for religious ed programs with purchases of 20 or more.
The app includes a plethora of slideshows, 360° panoramas, interactive maps, spinning 3D objects, solid scholarship, and sound Catholic teaching.

If you still have questions or want to learn more about “The Mass Explained” Catholic app, you should visit their homepage, see their FAQ section and learn more about it.
Is it worth paying $25 to download this app? I think of it as buying a book. You can find several books that explain the Mass faithfully and clearly, but you are not going to find a book that’s this engaging, this versatile, this interactive, and this cool!
My friends, this is what iPads are for. I haven’t seen a better interactive tool for teaching and explaining the faith. If you know of a better one, please, let me know!
