Hymnals is a remarkable app that brings all the elements of your favorite hymnal—and more—right to your iPad. The app is free—through it you can purchase the hymnals you need. Included at launch is access to the best-selling Roman Catholic hymnal from GIA Publications, Inc., Gather, Third Edition, in both a pew and choir edition. Other editions will follow shortly.

    Hymnals offers the complete contents of your hymnal in a compact, lightweight form—no more dragging around multiple hymnals and service binders!
