The iPray app was developed by users of the traditional Book of Common Prayer who desired an easy-to-use application of prayer book worship. iPray simplifies negotiating Scripture readings and the appropriate daily prayers following the liturgical calendar of the church, including feasts and fasts, into one, easy-to-understand application. The app was designed with the user in mind, placing the day's lessons at the user's fingertips. Four daily prayer offices are brought to you based on the liturgical calendar and the time of day: Morning Prayer, Midday Prayers, Evening Prayer and Compline.
Morning and Evening Prayer are from the English 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
Midday Prayers and Compline are from the Canadian 1962 Book of Common Prayer.
Daily scripture readings are from the 1922 lectionary revision of the English Prayer Book, and are in the Authorized (King James) Version.
The Psalter is the beautiful and memorable Coverdale translation.
For those who are unaccustomed to this kind of spiritual discipline, the iPray app provides an easy introduction to structured daily prayer and Bible reading, based on the ancient practice of the Church as refined by the English Reformation. Download this app and enjoy the rich heritage of daily devotion from the Book of Common Prayer.
Our thanks to the Anglican Foundation of All Souls' Church of Oklahoma City and David Hill for their support in the development of this app.

Traditional and amazing
The app is amazing. I been looking for an app that holds to the official liturgy of the Anglican Church, the 1662 book of common prayer and I found it here.
Not only does this app take me through morning and evening prayer but also it takes me through the church calendar and automatically updates the collects of the day in MP and EP. The app also explains what the holy days are.
I notice that there is even a compline and mid day prayer that is not found in the 1662 but that's okay. The app is amazing and a great help. Thank you.
The only issue I would take would be the images of Christ, since they go against our confession of faith in the 39 articles. Other then that I have no complaints.
If I could suggest anything, it would be great to have the litany of the 1662 in there as well as the 39 articles and catechism. The app is already amazing but it would be even way more amazing with those extra things.
Amazing but with significant issues
Despite my 3 stars, bottom line, this is the very best 1662 app you will find. Despite its flaws, it makes praying the daily office much more streamlined than with using physical books and bible texts.
I have been using this app for about 2 years now. For what it is designed to do, it is amazing. However, occassionally the wrong readings populate. For example, over the past three months it has mistakenly used readings from previous weeks, multiple times.
Also, occasionally it will not have the correct readings or collects for holy days.
The only interface issue I would like to see improved is when you are scrolling down a page, occasionally you will swipe a millimeter or two to the right or left, as though you are about to sweep to the next portion of the daily office. But if you do so by mistake (which is quite easy) it will reset the page to the top, which is slightly inconvenient, as you will have to scroll down to find your place again.
If just the readings and collects issue is fixed, I will change this to a five star review.
Love this app. Very user friendly. Really like the fact that it opens to “today” and even the service. Closets to the time App is opened!!!! Free during Lent is a great service to the community!!
