iPhone iBreviary prayer app has prayers available in Latin, endorsed by the Vatican

Friday, December 26, 2008

That's the gist of the article here you can see on the subject:

Released in November as an Italian-only free trial, iBreviary was downloaded 10,000 times, according to the Associated Press. The official version, a 99-cent download (or 0.79 euros on the other side of the pond), includes English, Spanish, French and, for old-school Catholics, Latin. Portuguese and German will appear in a future version.

Father Pedrini will donate his profits to charity, though the AP story made no mention of what Apple plans to do with its 30 percent cut.

Earlier this week the Vatican endorsed iBreviary, with Monsignor Paul Tighe, secretary of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Social Communications citing the app as an example of the Church “learning to use the new technologies primarily as a tool or as a means of evangelizing, as a way of being able to share its own message with the world.”
For those that have the app, what are some of the Latin prayers available and how many? Are there as many available in Latin as the other languages?
