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.

- Complete Bible including Coptic New Testament and Deuterocanonical books

labour of love

We are praying for those who are behind this great program, that God may reward them hundred folds,
This program has helped all Copts everywhere to turn their home into a church, it caused our houses became houses of prayers.
“For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister”

Happy but a bit of a bug

My wife decided to purchase the liturgies under her account, and as we have family sharing turned on, I thought that it would show up on my device. She ended up purchasing the liturgies and the hymns ($15) but it didn’t show up on either devices. Is it possible to rectify this matter by the developer??

Other than that we love the app.
