Tao Daily provides you with a single passage from the Tao Te Ching every day. You can also receive reminder notifications on a daily basis. The passages can be conveniently shared with your friends.
The Tao Te Ching is an ancient Chinese text purportedly written by Lao Tzu which aims to describe 'The Way'. Many people find great insight from this text. The english translations of the passages presented in this app are by S. Mitchell and while not literal, often resound very strongly with people in how they allude to the poetic nature of the original text.

Daily dose of Tao
Simple, elegant app which gives you a soft chime reminder to open one easy to read full screen passage from the Tao. I'm no zen master, but it is a needed reminder that we control our own perspectives.
I would think that someone sensitive enough to bring Mitchell's delicate translation to a daily app would have cared enough about the words themselves to proof the text. As in #13, where "as" is rendered as "a," there are several places where carelessness distracts from the message of the Dao.
A Great Simple App, and a Good Translation
I have read a handful of translations of the Tao Te Ching. I can say that this one is quite good, and refreshingly new. I enjoy reading it every day.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
