According to the Catholic tradition, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is a prayer that was transmitted by Jesus Himself to Mary Faustina Kowalska, a Polish nun that later was canonized as a saint by Pope John Paul II. This free little program is an electronic aid for those people who want to practice this devotion discreetly and don't have time to do so because they spend most of their day in front of their computers.
The program itself is very simple; it presents an animation featuring all the steps you need to follow for praying the Chaplet. Each step shows the prayers you need to recite and how to use the Rosary for counting each repetition. The program also includes extracts from the Gospels that are related to the Passion of Christ and that can be read between the different parts of the praying. Those extracts are illustrated with paintings that make an allusion to each part of the Gospels.
All in all, the program is simple but comprehensive, and can be very useful for people who want to follow this devotion. Maybe it can be more attractive if it had some sacred music as a background, but despite this, it is a good program for Catholics.
