The iPray app was developed by users of the traditional Book of Common Prayer who desired an easy-to-use application of prayer book worship. iPray simplifies negotiating Scripture readings and the appropriate daily prayers following the liturgical calendar of the church, including feasts and fasts, into one, easy-to-understand application. The app was designed with the user in mind, placing the day's lessons at the user's fingertips. Four daily prayer offices are brought to you based on the liturgical calendar and the time of day: Morning Prayer, Midday Prayers, Evening Prayer and Compline.
Morning and Evening Prayer are from the English 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
Midday Prayers and Compline are from the Canadian 1962 Book of Common Prayer.
Daily scripture readings are from the 1922 lectionary revision of the English Prayer Book, and are in the Authorized (King James) Version.
The Psalter is the beautiful and memorable Coverdale translation.
For those who are unaccustomed to this kind of spiritual discipline, the iPray app provides an easy introduction to structured daily prayer and Bible reading, based on the ancient practice of the Church as refined by the English Reformation. Download this app and enjoy the rich heritage of daily devotion from the Book of Common Prayer.
Our thanks to the Anglican Foundation of All Souls' Church of Oklahoma City and David Hill for their support in the development of this app.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
Making some text changes
Fixing an annoyance with scrolling.
Good resource but flawed
Psalm 95 in the morning office is not the version that appears in my 1662 prayer book. We are the sheep of his hand, not his hands, a typo I'm sure. But later my version says "they are a people that do err in their hearts, for they have not known my ways." This is quite different from the version given in the app. Psalm 106 refers to the "reed sea." This may well be the correct translation, but it is anachronistic and certainly not Coverdale. I am constantly finding more and more errors in the psalm texts. Whatever version this is, it isn't Coverdale and should not be marketed as such.
Good, but could be better
I like this app a lot. To make it better could be to make the aesthetics of the interface better in some way. Also, the transcription seems to have some errors and it would be nice to fix those up.
Overall a good app. I like that it has the scriptures and prayers at your fingertips. I would have like to see something that allows me to switch from rite 1 to rite 2 when I would like. (Maybe even give me a choice of bible version) Also it would be good to add prayers and thanksgivings from the back of the BCP.
