Ratings and Reviews
I previously left a review where I said the new version of the app was completely useless. Subsequently, I discovered that I just wasn’t waiting long enough after hitting “Liturgy of the Hours.” It takes so long that I thought it was freezing and crashing, but it does work after all. This is still (again) my favourite O.F. LOH app because of the English translations of real liturgical hymns, the option of Latin, the new ICEL collects, and auto scroll. That being said, the newer version is inferior in every way to the previous version. Slower, way less user-friendly, clunky, and confusing. If they went from the current version to the previous one, it would be a true “update” in every way compared to this one. I hope it’s at least more convenient for the developer to maintain, b/c it didn’t improve anything for the user.
Still Good But Was Better
This is still a good app. I still find the texts accurate for both the breviary as well as mass. I have no problems with downloading rapidly. What has gone downhill is that it no longer offers the proper texts at all for any of the orders listed in the app description. You used to be able to select an order & see all the dates with proper texts. The various propers slowly disappeared one by one. I would like to see the propers back, but overall still a solid app. I am concerned it will stop working at some point because it was last updated 2 years ago to work with iOS 10, which is pretty outdated.
Such a blessing
What a friend we have in Jesus, thank you for providing these prayers to pray and get to know Him better. He has been showing himself to me through prayer, and these prayers really help when I don’t know what to say. Being not the best impromptu communicator, I am filled with gratitude in my heart for the service you’ve provided here. God truly heals all diseases and all sorrows. Loving Him is the perfection of our faith and these prayers really communicate who he is, and the app is faithful to the real breviary so I believe. I like the old script style ... can we have more of that in future updates? Also is there a way to look up readings and psalmodies in any day of the year and not just from yesterday through the next ten?
If you’re a man, you gotta pray this. You’ll see. Anyway, thank you again and may God bless you and all who pray to Him in a sincere heart.
