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: firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.facebook.com/CopticReader
I use it all the time at church and home. I just wish it can block calls & messages while in use. With great appreciation to all who worked and still work to make it happen.
Great app and good for everyone to learn fast.
Amazing Coptic app thank you so much and God bless you all 🙏
The team has done a great job in organizing everything in this app especially with all the content I am very impressed. The only problem is in the annual commemorations in the settings the saints and angels could be organized a bit better. They could make it in alphabetical order, but right now it is very hard to find which saint or Pope or angel you were trying to find. Overall though, a very good app.
To start with I want to congratulate the team behind construction and maintenance of Coptic Reader - God bless you all, what a revolution in our Coptic church day to day use. Above is on the table, I have few comments/wishes: 1- I wish the Septuagint translation (Orthodox Study Bible) is replacing the current NKJ version for the OT. 2- Arabic translation (specifically in the Apocrypha books) doesn’t correlate with the current English words. 3- The current Arabic translation (as you know done by Protestants >200 years ago was done in a different era, some of the words are out of usage - I understand it’s not your concern as a website designer but for the sake of accuracy, it’s very noticeable as you put translations next to each other. 4- There is a glitch in the Agbya portion, if you leave one of the psalms opened (to come back to it for whatever reason) you return next day and it is replaced by another opened psalm. Please notice I love the Coptic Reader and I use it a lot , above are only my wish list...
Excellent app, I can’t live without it, I just wish if you can add a book mark. Thank you
This is a gift.
Your helping and changing life’s. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Very helpful app
