Description

The official iPhone app for MassTimes.org. Mass Times was developed in 1994, to help traveling Catholics in the USA find a nearby church with a schedule of religious services. The information was collected from dioceses and parishes throughout the USA and made available by telephone at first, and then via the Internet in 1998. In 2002, Mass Times-USA decided to go International. Now it's available on your iPhone.

Search for churches and mass times using your current location, address book locations or manually enter an address. See detailed information about locations, mass times for daily and weekend masses along with confession and adoration schedules. You can even find out what masses you can still make and how far away they are!

You can view listings on a map, check out the parish web site and give them a call right from your iPhone if you have questions. Keep track of favorite churches and searches for quick reference.

Features:

• Most complete database of churches available

• Search by full or partial address

• Find nearby churches with GPS & Core Location

Not nearly accurate as free web site :(

:
I am a regular user of the web site and was excited to see this app from Masstimes.org. The user interface is simple and loads quickly. Unfortunately, this is where a positive experience ends.

I am very surprised and disappointed to see how inaccurate the data is since it is stated to come from the same source as the web site. There are churches near my home that have existed for years that do not appear in the app but do appear on the web site. Although I understand the disclaimer for inaccurate data as it relies on outside sources, I can not understand the inaccuracy of data that exists in the masstimes web database. The web links to several churches in my area that do work correctly on the web site take me to an unrelated church in my State.

While I thought the price to be a little high for this type of app, I purchased it to support masstimes.org. Had I read the reviews prior to purchasing as I normally do, I would have waited to see it updated. Unfortunately for me and the others who's reviews I have now read, we based our purchase decision on the trust that this app would be an improvement to the existing web site.

I downloaded the FREE Catholic Directory app to compare it and found the data in that app is more accurate. The local church that is missing in your app is listed in the Catholic Directory app and the links to church websites that are not working correctly in your app do link properly in theirs which again is FREE!

I sincerely hope that you will honor those of us that bought this app to quickly update it so that it at a minimum, is as accurate as the web site.

I look forward to updating this rating once this app is at least at par with the web site. Shame on you for charging money for an app that is not ready for release and inferior to the web site you offer for FREE!

For now I will use the FREE Catholic Directory app.

Please work to improve this

:
There are too many problems to list. Blackout areas where you can be within 10 miles of a dozen parishes and none show up on the app.

0/5 stars

Waste of money

:
This app is useless unless you feel like driving past a dozen other churches on the way to the one it says is nearest to you. As the other reviewers said, the data is unreliable and bears almost no resemblance to that on the website. Save your money, use the website.
