Description

Coptic Reader is a mobile application that contains the liturgical text, rites, psalmodies, hymns, melodies, services, and sacraments of the Coptic Orthodox Church. See below for a full list of included content. Coptic Reader is not simply a text reader but rather it dynamically creates each document/service according to the rites of the current day, or selected day/feast. Coptic Reader builds each document on the fly with all appropriate hymns, rites and instructions to take the guess work out of the order of a church service. Coptic Reader can generate documents in a combination of English, Arabic, and Coptic and supports both English and Arabic as the application interface language. Coptic Reader is fully customizable and allows you to show/hide different liturgical roles (i.e., Priest, Deacon, and Congregation), inaudible prayers, rubrics/comments, and languages. You may choose between different graphical themes as well as change the document text size. A presentation mode is also supported that allows you to project the content in your church for a complete experience. The application also allows you to control which saint or archangel commemorations will be shown in doxologies, hymns, responses, and other prayers for your church's intercessors. Content List: - Complete Bible including Coptic New Testament and Deuterocanonical books - Book of Hours (Agpeya) - Holy Psalmody including Midnight Praises, Vesper Praises, Morning Praises (Standard, Koiahk, Nativity, Theophany, Great Fast, Pentecostal, including all festal psalies) - Antiphonary (Difnar) - Divine Liturgies with integrated Service of the Deacons (St. Basil, St.Gregory, and St. Cyril, as well as Vespers and Matins service) - Katameros (Sundays, Weekdays, Great Fast, Pentecostal, and feasts) - Synaxarion - Distribution Melodies - Unction of the Sick - Baptism Prayers - Crowning and Engagement Prayers - Pascha Prayers - Prostration Prayers - Liturgy of the Waters (Lakkan) - Veneration - Funerals (Men, Women, Boys, Girls, Monks, Memorials, and Prayer at the Tomb) - Consecrations (Church, Vessels, Censers, Icons, Baptistery, Ordinations, Reception of a New Priest, and Home Blessing) For more information about Coptic Reader, visit: http://suscopts.org/wiki/Coptic_Reader Please direct any comments or questions to: copticreader@suscopts.org https://www.facebook.com/CopticReader

  • Very small font and no bookmarks

    Very nice app. But the font got very small when I made the last update. I wish you can give options for changing the font to give some convenience to different users. The other thing is that I wish I can bookmark my reading in the bible cause usually I forgot where I stop the day before. I wish you can add an option for shading verses in the bible just like in hard bibles. Otherwise i love it and am using it everyday.

    Please consider adding a bookmark so when you leave the app and return the following day, you can pick up where you left off.
  • Bring back Night of the Last Supper

    It was still being used by many churches
  • Night of the Last Supper is de facto authentic

    Stuff like this that shows how out of touch traditionalists are who don’t have a proper understanding of living Holy Tradition
  • Still a great app! Really wish for one feature though

    The app overall is alright. Few things though: the creators of the app make editorial decisions for what can and can’t be the app, so instead of being a repository for all hymns, songs, and readings. It is of course fair, but what their clergy may deem “not allowed”, other clergy or bishops may be okay with. I wish they just were a platform rather than a regulator. Secondly, the app is ugly. It has a bad UI and looks tacky. It doesn’t conform to Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines at all. Lastly, the one thing I wish the devs could add is a better theme for projectors. The side menu's stand out so much when being used on a projector, and it can be really distracting. They could also make a special mode that works in-tandem with Airplay, where it does not just mirror the whole screen.
  • Can you add something??
