The app, a collaborative, grassroots project between Lasallian schools across the country, was mostly written by Melbourne's St Bede's College staff and developed by Fraynework, a multimedia ministry of the Sisters of Mercy.
Ria Greene, deputy principal at St Bede's College, said the app had been downloaded by many people across the English speaking world.
"For Apple to accept a proposal for a new product, there needed to be a 'point of difference' and for our app the point of difference was the Words of the Founder," Ms Greene said.
"St John Baptist de La Salle was a prolific writer and we are the beneficiaries of his profound writings that have transcended place and time. These theological, spiritual and pastoral works continue to affirm, challenge and inspire all Lasallians and people of prayer, as such the 'words of the Founder' form the foundation of the De La Daily prayer app."
