August, 17th
Daily Readings, Liturgy of Hours, CCC and New American Bible update

Thanks to all of you that expressed support for CatholicOne return with Daily Readings,  Catechism and New American Bible. Here's an update:
  • On August 17th USCCB granted us right to use Daily Readings and Bible. We thank to persons involved at USCCB for being accommodating and expeditious resolution of this matter. We also thank all of you for support and prayers.
    We are working to modify CatholicOne so that it complies with required conditions and will be releasing new version as soon as these are in place. Probably 2 weeks.
    a) a feature that will not be available is caching of readings. We will work out scheme that will allow you to set time when to auto-download Daily Readings for offline reading but only for the current day. This is in case when you go to church and there is no  wifi or no other internet.
    b) Catechism is copyrighted and can not be included in CatholicOne, we will provide link to Vatican website that holds the CCC
    c) NAB will be available in online version and will require internet access 
  • We also were asked to withdraw Liturgy of Hours  by New Jerusalem Bible publisher (http://www.darton-longman-todd.co.uk) since LOH texts contain NJB verses. So unfortunately, Liturgy of hours will not be coming back until October - assuming they grant us permission to use then. We were told that our request to grant use will be reviewed in October. There are Liturgy of Hours paid applications on Android Market if you wish to purchase (iBreviary?).
  • We are working to include Douay-Rheims Bible. This is a free version of old English translation used by Catholic Church in the past.
  • We will never be charging for CatholicOne. Some people suggested donations, etc. but we don't want to take any money for this app.



7/7
 we have removed CatholicOne from Android Market due to outstanding copyright issue. We will clarify this  and return to Market as soon as possible.
