* Search for your favorite saint or feast any time during the year.
* Quickly look up movable feasts based on the date of Pascha.
* Lookup definitions of Orthodox words
* Read a selection of Orthodox Prayers.
* Live Services of parishes across the United States of America.
* Reminders to read the Epistle and Gospel for the day facilitate personal Bible reading.
* Viewing both the content and the app interface in your choice of English, Greek, or Arabic.
* Orientation changing.
* Font size and face options for readings.
* Easily share readings with friends and family!
* Swipe on the main page to go to the next date.
* Swipe between readings to go the next one.
* iPhone and iPad "reader" modes.
This app follows the typikon and lectionary of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
What's New in Version 1.5.6
* Fixed duplicate readings when opening the app from the background.
* App works better now with larger system fonts.
* Better reader mode in iPhone with navigation bar and toolbar disappearing upon scroll up.
* Made readings left justified for better reading.
* Fixed issue in Glossary on iPhone.
* Switched Holy Communion prayer order.
* Personal Prayers are now at the top of the prayers list.
I LOVE the app! It's gotten me so much more into my faith. I feel it should be much more advertised though. Also when you swipe it gets a little annoying because sometimes I wanna go down. But instead it swipes... Also Saint Search doesn't work a few more bugs in glossary.
Good app. Needs changes.
The app is easy to use. But we need the story of the life of the saints of the day. Not just the statement about orthodox Christians celebrating their saints day on that particular day.
Great for prayer, potential for more
I would love to access the Bible and theological works through the app.
