I've had an iphone for a while, but didn't really want to listen to music on it and didn't know how the apps could work. So I am happy to share my new routine.
Then I go to the "pray as you go podcast." This starts with bells ringing calling us to prayer, followed by a hymn. Then a meditation is lead that concerns the mass readings and leaves periods of silence to think over the point made or the question asked.
This app allows you to select the date you'd like to hear, so if it is a Saturday, I will often select the Sunday readings to prepare for the next day.

Then, if I have more than 30 minutes, I LOVE to turn on my Ignatius Press/Lighthouse Catholic Media bible App. The app is free so that you can read the entire bible, but I must say, the $20 I paid to "hear" all of the new testament dramatically read (Truth and Life Bible project) was well worth it.
The app also is a portal to all the great talks by Lighthouse. There are several for free and then all the others can be purchased for a small charge. To get the free talk, click on the icon that looks like a lock at the bottom right of the home screen. Enter promo code 1380 and it will let you choose a free talk from Fr. Michael Schmitz or Dr. Scott Hahn.
I know there are many more apps out there just waiting to be discovered. If you've found a good one to help walk and pray, let me know!
