Brilliant! This is just what I've been looking for. It's quick to load, intuitive to follow and works flawlessly. It loads the office of the day with all the changes for the day concerned, the full lectionary readings and seasonal variations. As an Australian Anglican with no access to local electronic prayer books (they don't exist for copyright reasons), this is an absolute God-send. Thank you!

This is a wonderful resource for anyone who wants to pray the Anglican daily offices.

Now available for iPhone/iPad (search for Common Prayer James Porter).

NB If there are problems loading liturgies this is likely to be an issue with the CofE feeds (not the App). Please, bear in mind I have absolutely no control over this service. Any disruptions are likely to be temporary. Please check http://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-worship/join-us-in-daily-prayer.aspx for service updates.

Very good, I would prefer blue text to be red as in Prayer Book. Also want to have more future dates so I can save and use on holiday. John

Great app! Have had this for awhile. I do own the book, but this is great for at work or when I don't have the book at hand. Have found the functionality quite good, with the initial selectability of the orders of prayer. In Australia because of the time difference, I think on occassional mornings I've opened it, the previous day"s morning prayer comes up, so then you select CW Morning Prayer (Tomorrow) to be in line with the Australian timezone, but that' no real issue. I think this app would use too much space on most mobiles as fully incorporated file of readings, so orders downloaded automatically from the server is good. May all who use this be blessed in the reading of God's word & encouraged in disciplined prayer. Thank you to the developer.
