Great for two reasons.

This paid app is a step in the right direction for the Archdiocese.

First, because it is thoughtfully designed, simple and elegant, and is a big step up from the first app they released. Being able to quickly switch between English and Greek texts is a great tool (for ANY student of Scripture, not just Orthodox). As if that weren't enough as it is, to include a Saint search function and a moveable feast chart makes this a powerful pocket reference and devotional aide.

Second, because it is a very easy way for iPhone users to help financially support the ministry of the Archdiocese. Many of us pay $.99 or more for mindless games on our phones. It was nice for the Archdiocese to originally provide this as a free app with the option to donate, but I think they should have asked the nominal $.99 fee from the beginning. I would gladly have paid more than that to have such a helpful app and to support the Internet ministry. (I hope you don't get any complaints for making this a paid app. Let's face it, if you can afford an iPhone/iPod and grumble about paying for an app like this, maybe your priorities are a little skewed :)) I hope all the current users of the free app move to this one. Keep up the great work!

Also - great timing with the Pascha release! Χριστός ανέστη!

Incomparable Asset!

This App, along with the Daily Readings emails that I receive are wonderful. It is like having a Synaxarion, a service book, an Orthodox Encyclopedia, and a calendar all on the mobile device of your choice (iPhone and iPad for me). I start each day with my reading of the feast day or saints, followed by the Epistle, and finally the Gospel reading for the day. It is a blessing to have this with me on a daily basis.
