iOS Universal Lifestyle
• Liturgical calendar for every year (until the year 2300 and beyond!).
• Each day, the About Today page gives you information and meditations on the saints and feasts of the day.
• You can choose from over 20 local calendars, for USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland and India, and most of the dioceses of the UK.
• If you have iOS 8 or above, you can see the saint of the day on your Today screen.
• If you have an Apple Watch, you can see the week’s calendar and Mass readings; and a Glance is available to show you today’s feast.
• If you are blind, turn on VoiceOver and press the Information button in the toolbar at the top of the screen to get full instructions.
• All the above features do not require an Internet connection.
• If you have an Internet connection, you can see the Liturgy of the Hours (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, Night Prayer, the three daytime Hours, and the Office of Readings) for yesterday, today and tomorrow, and also the readings for Mass (using the Jerusalem Bible translation and the Grail psalms).
As always, if you want full instructions, open Universalis and shake your device. Side to side works best. (If you are using VoiceOver to read the screen to you, then instead of shaking, use the Information button at the top of the screen).
• You can choose between turning pages like a book or scrolling like a web page. You can choose fonts and font sizes (including huge ones for the partially sighted) and you can turn on a night mode for reading in the dark.
UNIVERSALIS PREMIUM CONTENT
You can choose to add to these features by purchasing Universalis premium content. Universalis premium content gives you:
• No limit on the dates viewable for the Liturgy of the Hours and Mass.
• No need to connect to the Internet.
• For the USA and the Philippines, the New American Bible translation of the readings and psalms at Mass.
• In the Office of Readings, the two-year cycle of First Readings as an optional alternative to the one-year cycle of the printed books.
You buy Universalis premium content one month at a time, and we give you a month’s free trial right at the beginning, so that you can decide if it is something you want.
In the Office of Readings (Premium Content), there is a new option button next to the First Reading, letting you use the two-year cycle of readings rather than the one-year cycle from the printed books. The two-year cycle was promised when the Liturgy of the Hours was revised in 1970, but it was found to be too expensive to print. Even if you're not interested in the rest of the Office of Readings, why not make a point of reading the First Reading each day? It is a wonderful resource.
