This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Orthodox PrayerBook is the ultimate prayer assistant for Orthodox Christians. Not only does it allow you to carry your prayers around, it was designed from the ground up for the iPhone to allow you to pray in the least distracting manner possible.
Carry with you all the prayers, information about daily saints and fasting schedules. Keep a list of people you want to pray for and have them automatically embedded into the prayers.
Orthodox PrayerBook currently supports the Antiochian, Greek and OCA specific saints and daily variables.
The Orthodox PrayerBook has been developed tirelessly by the Spark OCN team that include: Johanna Phillips, Michael Otte, Kali Godshall, Kyra Godshall, Nicholas Kachur and Juan Gabriel Quinodoz.
This project also could not have come about without the support of the Orthodox Christian Network (www.myocn.net) and the Spark OCN executive team including Charles Lelon, Joanna Read, Nick Mavrick and Garry Paxinos.
A special thanks to all the beta testers, especially the ever-vigilant Mat. Irene Phillips.
Please support this ministry by donating to the Spark OCN project. More information can be found at http://www.sparkocn.com.
What's New in Version 2.0.6
**THIS IS A CRITICAL RELEASE. ALL USERS MUST UPGRADE TO THIS VERSION. THE OLDER VERSIONS WILL NOT FUNCTION AFTER JAN 30 2016**
- Updated backend to account for shutdown of old backend servers.
What a joy to be able to use this wonderful app once again. The issues with previous updates which broke the app seem to be fixed now. The calendar is my favorite feature—scripture readings, lives of the saints, and daily troparia, all arranged according to one's selected tradition (OCA, Antiochian, or Greek) and all right in the app itself. A blessing!
Prayers Will Not Load
I used to use this application every day, multiple times a day. Since the automatic update, the application doesn't work at all. At first I had a hard time logging in. But ultimately I was able to log in after repeated attempts. Now, I open the application and it just shows "cannot download prayers". Try to refresh, nothing. Quit the app and open it again...same thing. Uninstall the app and reinstall it, same error message. Please fix the application. It is important to us Orthodox Christians.
A Handy App...but...
I like the utility of the app a lot. However, I can't give it 5 stars because there are no daily scripture readings. Also, the searching for friends feature only works if you specifically input names. I'd like to have it connect to my contacts and/or Facebook friends.
