It is a masterpiece of the digital age
Ocean is so accessible. It is remarkably easy to conduct a search across all sacred literature, or confine the search to be within specific books. This alone merits much applause.
However, for me, the crown jewel in Ocean 2.0 is the audio on the book ‘The Dawn Breakers’. I like to simply read along on the screen as the audio proceeds, or follow along in my own book, highlighter in hand, as I study these amazing stories. The pronunciation of the names and places recorded in that book (the ones that have always been difficult for me to properly pronounce) are masterfully read by a bilingual reader who reads the book with such carefulness and beauty as to make me feel like I am personally being read to by a loving friend.
To all those involved in the making of this masterpiece, well done! And thank you!
Ocean is by far my favorite app and the best space for refreshment and elevated perspective. The developers must be working under direct supervision of the Divine Will!
To have the sacred texts read aloud in a clear, warm voice is truly
wondrous. delight. (Of course that’s an optional setting.) I have not begun to learn all the features, but I do enjoy being able to copy selections and send them to myself and others. Just install this, OK?
Welcome nextgen Ocean!
Ocean was a godsend in its day, especially before online searching became so much easier and accessible but after MARS began to show its age. So it’s a pleasure to see it return, with an updated mission and update content. The iOS apps work smoothly on my iPhone and iPad; no problems at all switching between landscape and portrait orientations.
