Vemkar is the official app of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America.

In Armenian, a “Vemkar” is the specially anointed stone that serves as a movable altar, which can be used for ritual functions in the absence of a permanent sanctuary. As a portable tablet, it allows the sacred power of the Armenian Church to be brought to people in even the most remote places.

The Vemkar app places access to the Armenian Church in the palm of your hand. Obtain the latest news from the Eastern Diocese, read the daily Scripture verses, listen to Armenian spiritual music, request prayers, post comments, find local events, and share photos and images on social networks.

Great app!

Such a wonderful app, I can be in church anytime I want! Only thing I think needs fixing is the bar for the music every time I try and scroll through the song i keep hitting the favs button and the profile button maybe it can be moved up to the middle of the screen?

Great app with flaws

Amazing app but I have to keep deleting and reinstalling it. My screen goes black and it only shows me a track list without names. Also, it never plays an album in order. It always reverts back to the yekmelian badarak or Gomidas. I wish this app was built better so I could listen to it everyday without interruptions. Otherwise, great idea just please fix these issues!!

My Favorite Application

Vemkar is my favorite application. I use it everyday for my Bible Readings. I am Armenian and I am thankful that this Armenian App is available. Thank you very much!!! Since writing this review, I have purchased an IPhone6 and I can no longer get the daily Bible reading from the Vemkar site, will this be fixed soon?
