Fun Catholic iPhone ap “commercial”

With a tip of the biretta to Fr. Roderick,  I present this great iPhone ap commercial spoof with a Catholic twist.

It was made by P. Camarata.

It looks like that guy needs to charge his iPhone… a common experience we share.

    That stuff is really neat and tempting. But I will always stick with my basic phone, I wish it didn’t get texts sometimes but… o well. My family and fiance call me an old man because of my complaints about technowledgy, I know how to use alot of the stuff I just dont have much care for it. Since I’m 20 i guess that is a real weird thing.

    But I have to say this iPhone spoof is the first iPhone ad to make me actually want one.

    Lighting a virtual votive candle? Does that mean you will get virtual or real help from the Saint in question! LOL!

    Great video! I just sold my iphone (for $200 more than I paid for it!)I got tired of the dropped calls and constantly dead battery. I never used the apps anyway.

    MargaretMN: An iphone votive candle seems just as sensible to me as the electric flicker-lamps that infest some churches nowadays.

    I like to commercial, though. I might have to download the Mass/church finder app for the ipod touch.

    It is pretty cool. Almost made me want an iphone–but my phone is just a phone and doesn’t even do text and it suits me just fine!

    The clip isn’t playing on my computer, however, the Youtube link works just fine. What happened?

  8. Sacristymaiden says:

    BTW, that’s pretty neat.

  9. Jayna says:

    Fr. Roderick made one as well. Here’s the link if you haven’t seen this one:

    Paul Camarata would make one playing up the saint apps!

    If I ever get a cellphone, I suppose these things might be nice. But given how expensive cellphones and cellphone service still are, I don’t really see me upgrading to the most expensive phone in existence! LOL!

    Really, what I want in a cellphone is no features except a phone, service that costs about ten bucks for unlimited for a year, no bizarre service plan I can’t figure out, absolutely nothing I will miss or have trouble replacing when the cellphone (inevitably, like all small things) gets left behind or inadvertently thrown away, rugged durability, and availability in every convenience store. Moore’s Law has let me down in these respects. Of course, given that texting, the cheapest possible service format besides Morse code, costs the earth both to sender and receiver, it’s obvious that cellphone providers have no interest in going this way. Pay as you go cards are obscenely expensive as well (I knew somebody who used up ten or twenty dollars of time in a week). Also, you can’t wear your cellphone on your wrist like Dick Tracy, so obviously it’s all in vain. :)

    Maureen, look into a prepaid carrier and a cheap, used, unlocked phone bought off of ebay. And yes, I know this is a rabbit hole.

  12. I have the ipod touch, all the glory of the Iphone, none of the dropped calls…:), I do need to download more Cath apps.

    That absolutely must be the best iPhone commercial I’ve ever seen. Apple should air that one!!!!

    Thanks for sharing, Father.
