Coptic Reader is a mobile application that contains the liturgical text, rites, psalmodies, hymns, melodies, services, and sacraments of the Coptic Orthodox Church. See below for a full list of included content. Coptic Reader is not simply a text reader but rather it dynamically creates each document/service according to the rites of the current day, or selected day/feast. Coptic Reader builds each document on the fly with all appropriate hymns, rites and instructions to take the guess work out of the order of a church service.

Coptic Reader can generate documents in a combination of English, Arabic, and Coptic and supports both English and Arabic as the application interface language. Coptic Reader is fully customizable and allows you to show/hide different liturgical roles (i.e., Priest, Deacon, and Congregation), inaudible prayers, rubrics/comments, and languages.

You may choose between different graphical themes as well as change the document text size. A presentation mode is also supported that allows you to project the content in your church for a complete experience. The application also allows you to control which saint or archangel commemorations will be shown in doxologies, hymns, responses, and other prayers for your church's intercessors.

Small issue


There’s a weird space at the top of my screen ever since i updated it. And on the side the blue bar blocks some of the options on the screen. I have an iPhone X if that helps.

A weird problem with the display since the last update


Please review the strange display (chopped text at the end of every slide) in slide mode after the last update.

I’m using iPhone X

Very creative app


This app is really help full my church uses it as its main church book. Also it would be cool if you added Coptic-English or Coptic-Arabic. The app is not supported with iPhone X which is very annoying since it’s been out for 6 month now
