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

Can't adjust text size on Samsung S5 This is a wonderful app, a great addition to anyone's prayer life. I can't give it 4 or 5 stars though because it's impossible to change the text size in the app on my S5. Selecting the different sizes only adjusts the size of the margins, not the text. If this were fixed I'd give it 5 stars.
