About this app

Coptic Reader is a mobile application that contains the liturgical text, rites, psalmodies, hymns, melodies, services, and sacraments of the Coptic Orthodox Church. See below for a full list of included content. Coptic Reader is not simply a text reader but rather it dynamically creates each document/service according to the rites of the current day, or selected day/feast. Coptic Reader builds each document on the fly with all appropriate hymns, rites and instructions to take the guess work out of the order of a church service.

Coptic Reader can generate documents in a combination of English, Arabic, and Coptic and supports both English and Arabic as the application interface language. Coptic Reader is fully customizable and allows you to show/hide different liturgical roles (i.e., Priest, Deacon, and Congregation), inaudible prayers, rubrics/comments, and languages.

You may choose between different graphical themes as well as change the document text size. A presentation mode is also supported that allows you to project the content in your church for a complete experience. The application also allows you to control which saint or archangel commemorations will be shown in doxologies, hymns, responses, and other prayers for your church's intercessors.

Content List:
- Complete Bible including Coptic New Testament and Deuterocanonical books
- Book of Hours (Agpeya)

Very professional put together of the church books to provide the daily prayers and readings according to the rite of the Coptic Othodox church of Alexandria. Over the years it is getting updated to observe any special scenarios like multiple occasions overlapping and identifying which takes precedence. In addition, typos and corrections are continuously implemented. Very impressive to the extent that you get concerned that over the years you may forget the original books of the church!

It's a great app for traditional orthodox Coptic church different events, liturgies, daily prayers, daily praises and more. Highly recommended. Next step to get 5 stars is to make it multilingual to include French, Spanish, Chinese and other languages worldwide. Edited from 4 to 3 stars on April 18, 2021: Can't contact the developer from within the App. Can't select text to share passages with others or copy/paste daily readings or Bible reference.

This is nitpicking, but maybe for the best presentation the app's icon could be updated and also the initial splash screen updated with higher resolution or clearer images! Like I said it's nitpicking, but update the app in all areas because this one is definitely one of the best and I've tested almost all the free Bible Apps!
