Subscription & Pricing Terms

OrthoPrax® is the ultimate Christian Orthodox calendar, prayer book, and guide with 3,500+ curated icons, daily prayers, and readings to help you experience and enjoy the liturgical cycle of the Ancient Faith. In-app purchases provide access to rich textual and audio content such as Sebastian Press’ Prologue, where our content would require hundreds of dollars to purchase separately, and a Cathedral in which to share our icons!

Free version: Contains the calendar, a listing of all Saints for every day, daily readings, daily prayers, the hymn of the day according to St. Nikolai Velimirovic, and thoughts of the day. When viewing the calendar, users see fasting and non-fasting days, can change from the old calendar to new, and all icons are included as thumbnail images. The calendar is periodically updated to adjust for moving feast days, additional icons, and relevant changes to the readings.

Basic version ($3.99 per year): Adds the ability to access one icon (per Saint and Feast day where available) in high-quality images, and to read summaries of the lives of the Saints from Sebastian Press’ Prologue (ISBN 9780971950504), as updated on a monthly basis.

Full version ($14.99 per year): Adds the full text of Sebastian Press’ Prologue, providing on a daily basis, the Lives of the Saints, Hymns of Praise, Reflection, Contemplation, and Homily for each day – a $135 value. In addition, you will have access to our complete icon database (multiple icons per Saint and Feast day where available) in high-quality images, and the daily readings from Prologue brought alive with Fr. Norman Kosanovic’s broadcast voice!

Looks like a promising app. I can't give a full review of the content without subscribing, but the UI is nice. My main issue is with the search bar; it seems to lag quite a bit, and sometimes doesn't work at all. Specifically, beginning a query with "an" (as in St. Andrew) causes it to break, and it crashed once. Hope this gets fixed soon

Fantastic content! However, there really needs to be a way to adjust the text size WITHOUT adjusting my system's settings. Having text settings within the app would bring it in line with other apps designed for reading. The pricing is also misleading: the full version requires purchasing both the basic and full subscriptions, so the full version is not $14.99/yr, but $18.98/yr. I would also love to see a one-time purchase option instead of a yearly subscription.

The "website no longer exists. 8 have no audio super for pressures or readings that the full subscription says you get. I had to pay for both subscriptions and have not gotten anything more than i had with the free version. I think thief might be a scam i do not know but it is for what i was expecting and i had to pay 3.99 and 15.99 for the full version. It should have been 14.99 for the full version but i was led through the website to buy the basic version first then the full version.

Thank you for your message. And thank you for pointing out on the website, we corrected the error caused by our provider, please visit again. Our basic service provides more info on each saint, and the full version provides the audio too. If you are not getting it, something must be wrong. Unfortunately, we do not provide audio for daily readings.
