I must say this site is great to have handy while in Sunday School. The funny part is one of my Sunday school kids showed it to me lol. We are able to see and read together as a class while using my iPod. I love this site. Thanks

Ratings and Reviews
Great idea but some kinks to work out
I was thrilled to see an Orthodox app here. When I downloaded it, however, I noticed that the fast days were not put on Wednesday an Friday, but were put on Thursday and Saturday. I'm assuming this might be an old vs new calendar issue? Nonetheless it is confusing. I would suggest the following: help section, ability to switch between old and new calendar, link to bible readings, link to stories of the saints
The app has a lot of potential...i'll keep my eye out for future updates
Update: I just noticed that the description of the days is different than the date shown. For example, the subtitle of the Sunday after the veneration of the life giving cross says 'Saturday after the veneration of the lifegiving cross'!
The perfect app to keep up in Greek culture.
A great start
The content is great...But...here it comes..I would love, love love the following features, Different calendar views (ie, month, day, week). Second...love the name day feature but wouldn't it be nice to set an alarm (adjustable, week, 2 days prior, same day, etc) to remember that on St. Georges day to call of the George's in your life. Although the icons are a great start, too small to be useful.. So present them on a different full screen?. I think for a 1st start this app has real potential. Ok...So right now I'm going to give it a "good" rating.
