This is the iPhone version of Breviarium Meum, which allows you to pray the traditional (1962 or earlier) Latin breviary of the Catholic Church wherever you go. You can download the texts up to a week in advance, so you can pray even when you don't have a network connection. A parallel translation of the breviary (English, French*, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, or Spanish*) and a collection of Latin prayers and blessings are also included. Select the background color and text size you prefer.
Use Breviarium Meum HD instead on iPad.
Pray the breviary you know in a new way, or get to know for the first time the Roman Liturgy in the Usus Antiquior, considered by Summorum Pontificum a precious treasure to be preserved and made accessible to all the faithful.
* The French and Spanish translations are still incomplete.
• Dark Mode Support: the theme you choose for the dark appearance is independent of the theme you choose for the light appearance.
• Bug fixes and performance improvements.

This is an excellent app and the most useful for learning the Old Office. Even if you have books, this is a useful tool for beginners to check that their ribbons are placed correctly. I once thought there was error and contacted the developer who was quick to respond. May God bless those who maintain this app!
I like this application very much. I was close to giving it five stars, but there are a few tweaks that ought to be made, I think, and I sincerely hope that the developers take my suggestions.
First: add blank likes to the end of each hour. The last line is hidden by the menu on iOS and, though the last line is not necessary to see, it does make for a small distraction.
Second: add markers that tell if an hour is complete or not. This would help the user to easily see where he is in his progress. The markers should be activated either manually in the list of hours, or automatically, after the user has scrolled through all the text of the hour.
Lastly: having the ability to automatically download several weeks of the office at a time would be great.
But overall it is a great app and one that I do not at all regret downloading.
The Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate are really taking the New Evangelization seriously with this wonderful app. One improvement I’d suggest: optional alarms for alerting you that it’s time pray.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
