Ratings and Reviews
Very comprehensive: even (still) relatively obscure Western Saints are listed for commemoration.
The app is very user friendly: among other extraordinary features, what really blew me away is you don't need to carry a bible with you to access the scriptural readings . Simply "tapping" the reference brings up the entire text.
Moreover, flipping your iPhone "sideways" enlarges the text. Very cool! I'd give this app 10 stars if I could!
This is by far the best orthodox calendar that I have used in the Apple Store. The Russian version thoughts for every day of the year by Theophan the Recluse. And it's wonderful how comprehensive the Saints collection is.
Also really like that the fasting days are the ROCOR fasting discipline. Not that there is anything wrong with milder fasting, different jurisdictions etc. Just my personal preference!
Best Old Calendar app
This is the best calendar app for Orthodox Christians on the Old Calendar. It includes the commemorations for each day, usually with a reading for several Saints, Scriptural readings for the day, the major troparia and kontakia, and of course the fasting rules for the day. English and Russian are included.
